Does the problem statement mean that there are no vertices with degrees higher than 4? Also, don't all leaves have degree 1?

i am confused i had seen a formula

d1+d2+...dn=2n-2 where d is degree and n number of vertices - Dec 11th 2012, 08:11 AMemakarovRe: tree

i found the total vertices as 6+m where m is the no of vertices for degree 1
