7x^4 + 8x^3  8x^2 + 3x4
The first term in the polynomial, when it is written in decreasing order, is also the term with the biggest exponent, and is called the "leading term".
The exponent on a term tells you the "degree" of the term. For instance, the leading term in the above polynomial is a "fourthdegree term" or "a term of degree four". The second term is a "third degree" term.
The degree of the leading term tells you the degree of the whole polynomial (when written in decreasing order); the polynomial above is a "fourthdegree polynomial".
