    Think of \(\Large 7q-4\) as \(\Large 7q^1 - 4\)

    well it is basically asking what is the highest exponent on a variable

    You want to find the degree of this polynomial: 7q – 4 Start by finding the degree of each term. The first term, 7q, can be written as 7q1. Since it has an exponent of 1, it has a degree of 1. The second term, 4, is a constant. Since there is no exponent, it has a degree of 0. Next find the highest degree. The highest degree is a degree of 1. So, the polynomial 7q – 4 has a degree of 1.

    Note: The degree of a polynomial is the degree of the variable that has the highest degree.
