Degree - Polynomial

Concept

Degree - Polynomial

The degree of a polynomial is the highest degree of its monomials. For example, the following polynomial has the degree 5.5. 4x5+x39x84\begin{gathered} 4x^5 + x^3 - 9x - 84 \end{gathered} This is because the monomial with highest degree is 4x5.4x^5. If the polynomial consists of only constant terms, the polynomial has the degree 0.0. Depending on the degree of a polynomial, it can have different characteristics. For example, a polynomial with degree 11 is linear, and a polynomial with degree 22 is quadratic.
