# Write the degree of each of the following polynomials:

i) 5x^{3} + 4x^{2} + 7x ii) 4 - y^{2 }iii) 5t - √7 iv) 3

**Solution:**

The highest power of the variable in a polynomial is called the degree of the polynomial.

i) Degree of 5x^{3} + 4x^{2} + 7x is 3 (the highest power of the variable x is 3).

ii) Degree of 4 - y^{2} is 2 (the highest power of the variable y is 2).

iii) Degree of 5t - √7 is 1 (the highest power of the variable t is 1).

iv) Degree of 3 is 0 (degree of a constant polynomial is 0. Here 3 = 3x^{0})
