A linear equation is that of a straight line. Any one of the infinitely many points on the line will be solutions.

If the equation is in terms of the variables x and y, just pick any two values of x, solve for y and the results will be the coordinates of two solutions.

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

What is 2x-3y equals -2?

This is an equation of a line. There are an infinite number of solutions which are all points on the line. It is a linear equation.


Is 2x2 plus 7 equals 79 linear or quadratic?

It is a quadratic equation that has 2 solutions


Do all linear quadratic systems have two solutions or one?

They will have 2 different solutions or 2 equal solutions and some times none depending on the value of the discriminant within the quadratic equation


Is y equals 5x2 plus 2 a linear equation?

Assuming that the 2 in "5x2" is a power (5x2), then no, this is not a linear equation. It is a parabolic equation.


What is the answer to -9x-7y equals -2?

There are infinitely many solutions. One linear equation in two variables cannot be solved to give a single answer.


What is y-c equals -2?

It is a linear equation in two unknown variables, y and c. One linear equation in two unknowns cannot be solved, it can only be arranged so that one or the other variable is the subject of the equation. However, that requires you to identify which variable is to be made the subject of the equation.


If the discriminant is zero the equation has solutions?

It has 2 equal solutions


When you square each side of an equation is the resulting equation equivalent to the original?

No. The resulting equation has more solutions. For example, x = 2 has only one solution and that is x = 2.butx2= 4, the squared equation, has two solutions: x = +2 and x = -2No. The resulting equation has more solutions. For example, x = 2 has only one solution and that is x = 2.butx2= 4, the squared equation, has two solutions: x = +2 and x = -2No. The resulting equation has more solutions. For example, x = 2 has only one solution and that is x = 2.butx2= 4, the squared equation, has two solutions: x = +2 and x = -2No. The resulting equation has more solutions.

How many solutions does the equation 14x plus 2 equals 12x have?

That looks like a linear equation (no quadratic or higher terms), so you can expect it to have a single solution. However, actually solving the equation is not difficult; do it, to confirm this.


If an equation has a degree of three how many solutions will there be?

If the highest degree of an equation is 3, then the equation must have 3 solutions. Solutions can be: 1) 3 real solutions 2) one real and two imaginary solutions.


What statement must be true of an equation before you can use the quadratic formula to find the solutions?

The quadratic formula can be used to find the solutions of a quadratic equation - not a linear or cubic, or non-polynomial equation. The quadratic formula will always provide the solutions to a quadratic equation - whether the solutions are rational, real or complex numbers.


How do you find quadratic equation with only 2 solutions?

If the discriminant of the quadratic equation is equal or greater than zero it will have 2 solutions if it is less than zero then there are no solutions.
