The degree of a polynomial is the highest degree of all the terms in the polynomial. there is no restriction on the number of terms.
The polynomial may have terms of lesser degree.
(1) linear polynomial of degree one is ax+b, where a is nonzero
(2) quadratic polynomial of degree two is ax2+bx+c, where a is non zero. note it also has a term of degree 1
