# degree

degree returns the degree of a polynomial

### Syntax

```
d = degree(f,x)
```

### Examples

With only 1 argument, the largest total degree is returned

```
sdpvar x1 x2
f = x1^2*x2^3 + x1^4;
degree(f)
ans =
5
```

With two arguments, the degree w.r.t individual variables are returned

```
degree(f,[x1 x2])
ans =
4 3
```

The lowest degree can also be extracted

```
degree(x1^2*x2^3 + x1^4,[x1 x2],'min')
ans =
2 0
```
