# Chapter 4 - Polynomials - 4.3 Polynomials - 4.3 Exercise Set - Page 251: 29

The answers are: \begin{align} 8x^4: &\color{red}{\text{Coefficient is 8 and Degree is 4}}\\ 2x: &\color{red}{\text{Coefficient is 2 and Degree is 1}} \end{align}

#### Work Step by Step

To determine the coefficient of a term, identify the part of the term which is the constant factor (usually a number). To determine the degree of a monomial, identify the number of variable factors in the monomial. \begin{align} 8x^4: &\color{red}{\text{Coefficient is 8 and Degree is 4}}\\ 2x: &\color{red}{\text{Coefficient is 2 and Degree is 1}} \end{align}
