# Find the degree of the following polynomials:(i) P(x) = x77 – 20x23 + 100(ii) P(m) = 22m2 – 900m4 – m6

Concept Used:

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

Explanation:

(i) P(x) = x77 – 20x23 + 100

In the given polynomial, the highest power is 77 in x77

Therefore, 77 is the degree of the polynomial

(ii) P(m) = 22m2 – 900m4 – m6

In the given polynomial, the highest power is 6 in –m6

Therefore, 6 is the degree of the polynomial.
