Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can combine things with the same variable terms.. like 3x2y + 4xy  5x4y = 6xy + 4xy  20 xy = (6 + 4  20)xy = 10xy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry, the degree for terms like x^4*y is the sum of both variables exponents, here 4 + 1 = 5, the degree is 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just means how many terms are in the polynomial, here 5
