Step 1
Given information-
We have a polynomial equation-
\(\displaystyle-{5}{x}^{{{3}}}+{5}{x}^{{{2}}}+{\frac{{{6}}}{{{7}{x}}}}+{4}\)
We have to find the degree of each term and the degree of the polynomial.
The degree of a polynomial is the highest power of its terms.
The power of a term is the sum of the exponents of the variables that appear in it.
Step 2
So,
The degree of the term \(\displaystyle-{5}{x}^{{{3}}}={3}\)
Degree of \(\displaystyle{5}{x}^{{{2}}}={2}\)
Degree of \(\displaystyle{\frac{{{6}}}{{{7}{x}}}}={1}\)
Degree of 4 = 0
And the degree of the polynomial is-
\(\displaystyle-{5}{x}^{{{3}}}+{5}{x}^{{{2}}}+{\frac{{{6}}}{{{7}{x}}}}+{4}={3}\)
Therefore the answers are-
3, 2, 1, 0, and 3
0
