Degree of Polynomial
Practice finding the degree of a polynomial
The degree is the value of the greatest exponent
of any expression (except the constant ) in the polynomial
. To find the degree all that you have to do is find the largest exponent in the polynomial
. Note: Ignore coefficients
have nothing to do with the degree of a polynomial
What is the degree of the following polynomial
+ x + 3?
Determine the degree of the polynomial
+ x + 33?
What is the degree of the following polynomial 11x9
What is the degree of the polynomial
the answer is 8. Be careful sometimes polynomials are not ordered from greatest exponent to least. Even though 7x3 is the first expression, its exponent does not have the greatest value.
What is the degree of the following polynomial 5x8
What is the degree of the polynomial x2
+ x + 23
the answer is 2. Do NOT count any constants("constant" is just a fancy math word for 'number'). IE you do not count the '23' which is just another way of writing 8.
