# Chapter 5 - Section 5.3 - Introduction to Polynomials - Exercise Set: 49

Degrees of the terms $x^3y: 4$ $-6: 0$ $2x^2y^2: 4$ $5y^3: 3$ Degree of the polynomial: 4

#### Work Step by Step

Degrees of the terms $x^3y: 3+1=4$ $-6: 0$ $2x^2y^2: 2+2=4$ $5y^3: 3$ Degree of the polynomial The largest degree of term is 4, so 4 is the degree of the polynomial.
