6.18 Homogeneous Expressions

Homogeneous Expression:
If all the terms of an algebraic expression are of the same degree, then such an expression is called homogeneous expression
We denote the coefficients by a, b, c, d, ...etc. and the variables x, y, z.

Example:
ax2 + 2hxy + by2 is a homogeneous expression as every term in it is of second degree. We call this a second degree homogeneous expression in x and y, where x and y are variables and a, h and b are constants.
