But the degree of a term in a polynomial in several variables is obtained by adding the powers of all variables in the term, and the degree of the polynomial is given by the highest degree of all its terms. For example, the polynomial 2x 2y 5 Ϫ 3xy 3 ϩ 8xy 2 Ϫ 3y ϩ 4 is a polynomial in the two variables x and y. It has five terms with degrees 7, 4, 3, 1, and 0, respectively. Accordingly, the degree of the polynomial is 7. Adding and Subtracting Polynomials Constant terms and terms that have the same variable and exponent are called like or similar terms.
