No, linear equations don't have x2.

Equation with x and y are usually linear equations.

Equations with either x2 or y2 (but never both) are usually quadratic equations.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

How do you know if an equation is not linear?

Linear equations come in the form y=mx+b or y=mx-b, where x and y are the variables x and y and b is a constant (like 3). All other equations are non-linear. Linear equations has a power of 1! as long as the X has a power of 1, it is a linear equation.

Is y equals x squared 2 plus 5 linear?

No, to be linear, both the power of x and y need to be 1. Since x is squared, the power of x is 2.

Do linear equations form a line?

Yes, the graph of a linear equation can be a line. There are special cases, sometimes trivial ones like y=y or x=x which are linear equations, but the graph is the entire xy plane. The point being, linear equations most often from a line, but there are cases where they do not.

How do you solve linear equations when the given is x equals -3 y equals 5?

Why are not all functions linear equations?

Linear equations can be written as y = mx + b. Any other function would be non-linear. Some linear equations are: y = 3x y = 2 y = -2x + 4 y = 3/4x - 0.3 Some non-linear functions are: f(x) = x2 y = sqrt(x) f(x) = x3 + x2 - 2
