What is the leading coefficient and degree in these two problems?
1). 4x^3y  3xy^2 + x^2y^3
2). x^5y + 2x^2y^2 + xy^4

You have to specify degree in x, or degree in y. In the first, in x it is degree 3 with a leading coefficent of 4. In y it is degree 3, with leading coefficnet 1.
On the second, it is degree 5 in x, leading coefficnet 1, but in y, it is degree 4, leading coefficent 1.
