**degree of a monomial**is the sum of the exponents of its variables. The degree of a non-zero constant is 0. Zero has no degree.

A

**monomial**is a real number, a variable, or a product of a real number and one or more variables with whole-number exponents.

**Examples:**

5x has a degree of 1. 5x = 5x^1 so the exponent is 1

6x^2y^3 has a degree of 5. The exponents are 2 and 3. Their sum is 5.

4 has a degree of 0. 4 = 4x^0. The degree of a nonzero constant is zero.
