Analyze the 4 terms of the polynomial z

Term 1 is z

Since there is no coefficient before our variable, (term does not start with a number), our coefficient is 1

Our variable is the letter which is z

The exponent of our variable is the power that the variable is raised to which is 12

Term 2 is -81y

Our coefficient/constant is the number our term begins which is -81

Our variable is the letter which is y

The exponent of our variable is the power that the variable is raised to which is 9

Term 3 is x

Since there is no coefficient before our variable, (term does not start with a number), our coefficient is 1

Our variable is the letter which is x

The exponent of our variable is the power that the variable is raised to which is 9

Term 4 is 3w

Our coefficient/constant is the number our term begins which is 3

Our variable is the letter which is w

The exponent of our variable is the power that the variable is raised to which is 3

The degree of the polynomial (highest exponent) for the variable z = 12

The degree of the polynomial (highest exponent) for the variable y = 9

The degree of the polynomial (highest exponent) for the variable x = 9

The degree of the polynomial (highest exponent) for the variable w = 3
