|Definition: In general, axn+bxn-1+.............+px+q (a is not equal to zero) is called a polynomial of degree n.
Here the coefficients are either integers, rationals or both.|
Example: 3x2+9x3+6x5, find the degree of the polynomial.
Solution: The degree of terms in the above equation are 2, 3, 5 respectively. The greatest among these is 5. Hence the given polynomial is of degree 5.
Directions: Find the degrees of polynomials for the following problems. Also write at least 10 examples of polynomials and their degrees.
