#"degree " 5#

Explanation:

The degree of a polynomial with 2 variables ( or more) is.

#color(red)" the sum of exponents with highest value"# for each term within the polynomial.

#4x^1to "degree1"#

#6x^1y^1to"degree 2 "#since (1 + 1 )=2

#3x^4y^1 to"degree 5"# since (4 + 1 ) =5

#5^0 to"degree 0"#

Thus the polynomial is degree 5.
