The expression is a monomial. Variables: $x$ and $y$ Coefficient: $5$ Degree: $5$
RECALL: (1) A monomial is a product of a constant and some variable(s) whose exponents are non-negative integers. (2) The degree of a monomial is the sum of the exponents of its variables. The exponents of the variables are 2 and 3, which are nonnegative integers. Thus, the expression is a monomial. The monomial has: Variables: $x$ and $y$ Coefficient: $5$ Degree: $5$
