# Degree of a Polynomial

The degree of a term of a polynomial is the sum of the exponents of the variables in that term.

 For example, consider this trinomial: 6x3y2 + xy2 + 35x4. The degree of the first term is 5. degree 6x3y2= 3 + 2 = 5 The degree of the second term is 3. degree xy2 = x1y2= 1 + 2 = 3 The degree of the last term is 4. In 35, the exponent does not contribute to the degree because the base, 3, is not a variable. degree 35x4= 4 The degree of a polynomial is equal to the degree of the term with the highest degree. In this polynomial, the term with the highest degree has degree 5. So this polynomial has degree 5. The polynomial has degree 5.
