Degree (mathematics) facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

The degree of a polynomial is the highest power of x that occurs inside that polynomial.

For example: if we look at the polynomial 2x^3 - 7x^2 + 5x - 4, then we can see that the degree of this polynomial is 3 because the highest power of x that occurs is x^3.
