How do you find the degree of #10+2cd^4-6d^2g#?
The convention for the degree of a multivariate polynomial is to look at each term and sum the total variable powers. The highest total power is the degree of the polynomial.
The first term
The second term
The third term
Since the highest degree term is
If the question is looking for the degree of the polynomial with respect to a specific variable, then the highest power that exists in the polynomial for that variable would be the degree of the polynomial.
