Answer

10

Work Step by Step

In order to find the degree of a monomial, we consider what power each variable is raised to, and then we add up all of the powers. Remember, if a power is not written above a variable, then the variable is being raised to the first power. When we add the degrees of the variables, we find 8+2=10.Thus, the degree of this monomial is 10.
