**Question:**

Determine the degree of each of the following polynomials.

(i) 2x-1

(ii) -10

(iii) x3-9x+ 3x5

(iv) y3(1-y4)

**Solution:**

(i) Degree of polynomial 2x-1 is one, Decause the maximum exponent of x is one.

(ii) Degree of polynomial -10 or -10x° is zero, because the exponent of x is zero.

(iii) Degree of polynomial x3 – 9x + 3xs is five, because the maximum exponent of x is five.

(iv) Degree of polynomial y3(1-y4) or y3 – y7 is seven, because the maximum exponent of y is seven.
