Sum of the exponents of the variables in a monomial.

### Examples

- The degree of the monomial 5
*x*³ is 3, since the exponent of*x*is 3. - The degree of the monomial 7
*x*³*y*² is 5, since the sum of the exponents is 5 : 3 + 2 = 5. - The degree of the monomial 10
*a*^{7}*b*^{3}*c*^{2}is 12, since the sum of the exponents is 12 : 7 + 3 + 2 = 12
