The degree is found by adding the exponents of each term  and selecting the greatest sum

 

Note that we  could write this as :

 

5a^6b^1c^2d^0e^0f^0g^0h^0  + 8a^0b^0c^0d^5e^0f^0g^0h^0   + 7a^0b^0c^0d^0e^6f^2 - 10a^0b^0c^0d^0e^0f^0g^4h^7

 

So 

First term  = degree 9

Second term = degree 5

Third term = degree 8

Fourth term  = degree 11

 

So....degree 11
