Identify the exponents on the variables in each term, and add them together to find the degree of each term.

The largest exponent is the degree of the polynomial.

A polynomial consists of terms, which are also known as monomials. The leading term in a polynomial is the highest degree term. In this case, the leading term in is the first term, which is .

The leading coefficient in a polynomial is the coefficient of the leading term. In this case, the leading term is and the leading coefficient is .

The polynomial degree is , the leading term is , and the leading coefficient is .
