The polynomial 15xy+3x^3y^4 is what degree?

I do not understand how to solve this

  • alg 2 check? -

    the degree of a polynomial is the largest sum of powers of the variables in each term. In this case, the terms have degree

    15xy: 1+1 = 2
    3x^3y^4: 3+4 = 7

    so, the polynomial is of degree 7.
