# Degree and Leading Coefficient Calculator

## Find the degree, leading coefficient, and leading term of a polynomial step by step

The calculator will find the degree, leading coefficient, and leading term of the given polynomial function.

### Your Input

**Find the degree, the leading coefficient, and the leading term of $$$p{\left(x \right)} = 5 x^{7} + 2 x^{5} - 4 x^{3} + x^{2} + 15$$$.**

### Solution

The degree of a polynomial is the highest of the degrees of the polynomial's individual terms. In our case, the degree is $$$7$$$.

The leading term is the term with the highest degree. In our case, the leading term is $$$5 x^{7}$$$.

The leading coefficient is the coefficient of the leading term. In our case, the leading coefficient is $$$5$$$.
