From Deejay:
How about when the given has no degree and the other has a constant only, For example 2x + 7, where's the leading term and what is its leading coefficient?

The degree of a polynomial 2015-01-05
From Nichole:
How do I determine the degree of polynomials? I've searched this on sites but they are all so confusing! Is there a simple explanation or way to find what the degree is? Some examples are: 6x^4 10x^2yz^5 and 3m^2n^7-10m^8. I also have to say that I am under the impression that this symbol ^ means the number after it is an exponent.
