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 $0$ ).
