# What is the degree in a equation?

**DEGREE**OF AN

**EQUATION**. The

**degree**of an

**equation**that has not more than one variable in each term is the exponent of the highest power to which that variable is raised in the

**equation**. The

**equation**. 3x - 17=0. is a FIRST-

**DEGREE equation**, since x is raised only to the first power.

Also question is, how do you find the degree of a polynomial?

In the case of a **polynomial** with more than one variable, the **degree** is found by looking at each monomial within the **polynomial**, adding together all the exponents within a monomial, and choosing the largest sum of exponents. That sum is the **degree** of the **polynomial**.

Likewise, how do you find the degree of a graph? An easy way to do this is to draw a circle around the vertex and count the number of edges that cross the circle. To **find the degree of a graph**, figure out all of the vertex **degrees**. The **degree** of the **graph** will be its largest vertex **degree**. The **degree** of the network is 5.

Subsequently, one may also ask, what is the degree of 1?

Names of Degrees

Degree | Name | Example |
---|---|---|

0 | Constant | 7 |

1 | Linear | x+3 |

2 | Quadratic | x^{2}−x+2 |

3 | Cubic | x^{3}−x^{2}+5 |

How do you find the degree of an angle?

To calculate **angles** in a polygon, first learn what your **angles** add up to when summed, like 180 **degrees** in a triangle or 360 **degrees** in a quadrilateral. Once you know what the **angles** add up to, add together the **angles** you know, then subtract the answer from the total measures of the **angles** for your shape.
