    The degree of a polynomial is the greatest of the degrees of its terms, after it has been simplified.

    ok, you need to first understand what the degree of a monomial is.

    The degree of a monomial is the sum of the degrees of factors in the monomial such as $$\Huge x^2yz$$ has degree 4

    mono = 1, bi = 2, tri = 3

    these prefixes tell you how many terms the polynomial has

    Can you tell me how you determine how it is classified as that?

    Count the number of terms

    recall in a + b, a and b are called terms

    Would a good example be for monomial be 2a+3?

    a monomial is a variable, a numeral, or the product of a numeral and one or more variables
