Write the degree of each of the following polynomials:

(i) (ii)

(iii) (iv) 3

Open in App
Solution

Degree of a polynomial is the highest power of the variable in the polynomial.

(i)

This is a polynomial in variable x and the highest power of variable x is 3. Therefore, the degree of this polynomial is 3.

(ii)

This is a polynomial in variable y and the highest power of variable y is 2. Therefore, the degree of this polynomial is 2.

(iii)

This is a polynomial in variable t and the highest power of variable t is 1. Therefore, the degree of this polynomial is 1.

(iv) 3

This is a constant polynomial. Degree of a constant polynomial is always 0.
