# How do you find the degree of 3/4?

Oct 28, 2017

$\frac{3}{4}$ has a degree of $0$

#### Explanation:

The degree of a polynomial term is the (sum of the) exponents of the variables included in that term.

$\frac{3}{4}$ has no variables and therefore no variable exponents
$\rightarrow$ it has a degree of $0$

Another way to look at it would be to write it with a variable:
$\frac{3}{4} = \frac{3}{4} {x}^{\textcolor{red}{0}}$
with degree $\textcolor{red}{0}$
