What is the degree of the multivariable polynomial
4x2 + 3x2y - 5xy4 +7y - 9 ?
Let's look at the degree of each term:
The largest degree of any term is 5, so the degree of the polynomial is 5. Done and done. Didn't even break a sweat.
Determine the degree of each term of the polynomial 5xy2 + 3x6y4 + 7y9.
Make it rain.
