Degree 2006-02-09
From Jessica:
I am a 9th grade home school student and have started doing degrees of terms in my math book. The following is some examples they give:

25a to the 4th power is a 4th degree term

67c to the 9th power is a 9th degree term

x is really x to the 1st power so it is a 1st degree term

10 is really 10x to the 0 power so it is a 0 degree term

They go on to say that every constant is a zero degree term.

My question is why isn't a constant, like 10, simply to the 1st power (making is a 1st degree term) like x.
