Degree[ <Polynomial> ]
Gives the degree of a polynomial (in the main variable).
Example:
Degree[x^4 + 2 x^2] yields 4.

CAS Syntax

Degree[ <Polynomial> ]
Gives the degree of a polynomial (in the main variable).
Example:
  • Degree[x^4 + 2 x^2] yields 4,
  • Degree[x^6 y^3 + 2 x^2 y^3] yields 6.
Degree[ <Polynomial>, <Variable> ]
Gives the degree of a polynomial in the given variable.
Example:
  • Degree[x^4 y^3 + 2 x^2 y^3, x] yields 4,
  • Degree[x^4 y^3 + 2 x^2 y^3, y] yields 3.
