# What is the degree of P(x) = x^3(x+2)(x-3)^2?

The degree of $P \left(x\right)$ is 6.
If we multiply the given factors out, we can guarantee we'll have an ${x}^{3} \times x \times {x}^{2}$ term, and the exponent of this term is $3 + 1 + 2 = 6$. All other terms will have $x$ to a lower power, and so 6 is the degree of this polynomial.
