Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the highest degree term is usually the highest exponent number..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Its the sum of the variables in the term, when there is more than one variable.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I thought it was the highest exponent number also.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2but there's x and y. two variables. so we have to take the sum of those .. at least that's what @zzr0ck3r pointed out

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So \(x^7y^5+x^3y^3+x^2y^2\) has degree \(12\) because \(12=7+5>3+3>2+2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2there's no all x. it's like comparing 5+3 to 6+8 in this problem .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wow  that's new to me. I thought it was just the largest exponent of ANY variable.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It is sort of a silly thing to have a definition for. Anyone who would want to to know about the "degree" of a polynomial with more than one variable, I am sure they would want to know information about each variable. So to even have a name for that seems silly, but it does generalize down to the normal definition with one variable.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Also, definitions change from book to book, so wiki could be "wrong".

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@zzr0ck3r is right... it's just that I haven't dealt with more than one variable in a while, but it is the sum... for one variable it's the highest number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Much bigger concepts do not have definitions that are universal. example: \(\mathbb{N}\)
