# Degree of a Monomial

The
**
degree of a
**
monomial
is the sum of the exponents of all its variables.

**
Example 1:
**

The degree of the monomial $7{y}^{3}{z}^{2}$ is $5\left(=3+2\right)$ .

**
Example 2:
**

The degree of the monomial $7x$ is $1$ (since the power of $x$ is $1$ ).

**
Example 3:
**

The degree of the monomial $66$ is $0$ (constants have degree $0$ ).
