The degree of a polynomial 
20150105 

Nichole pose la question : How do I determine the degree of polynomials? I've searched this on sites but they are
all so confusing! Is there a simple explanation or way to find what the degree is? Some

More on the sixth degree equation 
20070821 

Farzan pose la question : Equation 1 :
(R + (6.67*5.98*10^13/((R^2)*2)))^2  (R^2) = (7.27*(10^5)*R)^2
Equation 2 :
(6.67*5.98*10^13/(R^2*2))^2 + 6.67*5.98*10^13/R = (7.27*10^5*R)^2
As you see if we expand the left part of the first equation and simplify, the
equations become same, but these two equations have different answers in my
math software.The first one has 3 amounts for R, but the second one has 6
amounts. Why are the answers different ? Stephen La Rocque lui répond.

Degree 
20060209 

Jessica pose la question : I am a 9th grade home school student and have started doing degrees of terms in my math book. The following is some examples they give:
25a to the 4th power is a 4th degree term
67c to the 9th power is a 9th degree term
x is really x to the 1st power so it is a 1st degree term
10 is really 10x to the 0 power so it is a 0 degree term
They go on to say that every constant is a zero degree term.
My question is why isn't a constant, like 10, simply to the 1st power (making is a 1st degree term) like x. Claude Tardif lui répond.

Why is a circle divided into 360 degrees? 
19960930 

Kurtis Kredo pose la question : I was recently wondering why a circle has been divided in to 360 degrees. When I asked my physics teacher he could not think of an answer. His guess is that it probably has to do with people long ago using the base 6 number system. I have a small inkling that it has to do with easy conversion or usage with radians or grads. Chris Fisher lui répond.
