Degree:
The exponent of a number or expression. 
If a bus were traveling at a speed of 55 miles per hour, the distance traveled could be calculated by multiplying the rate times the time. After 2 hours the car would have traveled: 55 miles per hour * 2 hours = 110 miles.
The linear equation would be
D = 55 miles per hour * t where t is the number of hours traveled. A graph of this equation would look like:
