    we have the subsequent monomials: \(7p^3q, -10p^2q, -5q\)

    so, your polynomial is a trinomial

    okay so there are 2 trinomials and a bi momial?

    no, we have three monomials only, and those three monomials compose your trinomial

    for example: degree of \(7p^3q\) is \(3+1=4\)

    finally, degree of \(-5q\) is \(1\)

    please keep in mind that degree of monomial is the sum of the exponents of its factors
