# I write the degree of each of the following polynomials:(i) x4 + 2x3 + x2 + x(ii) 7x – 5(iii) 16(iv) 2 – y – y3(v) 7t(vi) 5 – x2 + x19

(i) (Note: The degree is the value of the greatest (highest) 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).

Since, here the highest power of variable is 4,

Degree of polynomial=4.

(ii) Since, here the highest power of variable is 1,

Degree of polynomial=1.

(iii) Since, here the highest power of variable is 0, because there exist no variable.

Degree of polynomial=0.

(iv) Since, here the highest power of variable is 3,

Degree of polynomial=3.

(v) Since, here the highest power of variable is 1,

Degree of polynomial=1.

(vi) Since, here the highest power of variable is 19,

Degree of polynomial=19.
