### Degree of a polynomial

The polynomial degree calculator allows you to determine the largest exponent of a polynomial.

# Degree of a polynomial

F is the polynomial x -> a_n*x^n+...+ a_(n-1)*x^(n-1)+...+a_1*x+a_0, with a_n!=0, the integer n is the degree of the polynomial, the largest exponent of the polynomial, n is also called the order of the polynomial. order of the polynomial.
The calculator is able to calculate online the degree of a polynomial.

## Calculating the degree of a polynomial

The calculator may be used to determine the degree of a polynomial.

To obtain the degree of a polynomial defined by the following expression x^3+x^2+1, enter : degree(x^3+x^2+1) after calculation, the result 3 is returned.

## Calculating the degree of a polynomial with symbolic coefficients

The calculator is also able to calculate the degree of a polynomial that uses letters as coefficients.

To obtain the degree of a polynomial defined by the following expression : ax^2+bx+c enter degree(ax^2+bx+c) after calculation, result 2 is returned.
