Explanation:

The degree of an expression the the largest degree of any of its terms.

The degree of a term is the sum of the exponents of the variables in that term.

$4y=4{y}^{1}$ has a degree of 1

$5xz=5{x}^{1}{z}^{1}$ has a degree of (1+1)=2

(5xz) has a higher degree than (4y)

Therefore the degree of the expression is the degree of (5xz), namely 2

Result:

4y-5xz has degree 2
