With a formula, you know the variable's value, and you have to calculate the value of the function of it.

With an equation, you know the function's value, and you have to calculate the value of the variable.

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 is solving for a specified variable in a formula different to finding a solution for an equation or inequality?

With a formula, you know the variable's value, and you have to calculate the value of the function of it. With an equation, you know the function's value, and you have to calculate the value of the variable.


When can you say that a number is called a solution in algebraic expression?

An algebraic equation or inequality can have a solution, an algebraic expression cannot. If substituting a number in place of a variable results in the equation or inequality being a true statement, then that number is a solution of the equation or inequality.


Can you solve for a variable in an expression?

No, you can only simplify an expression. To solve for a variable, it must be in an equation.


What is the number that can replace a variable?

Answer 1 == In an open sentence (an equation or inequality with a variable in it), when a number replacing the variable makes the sentence true, then it is a solution.


Why do we represent the solution to an inequality with a graph on a number line but we don't do the same for the solution to an equation?

An equation has an equal sign, which means that we know what the variable is equal to :)


Solve the inequality and enter your solution as an inequality comparing the variable to the solution -3 plus x10?

Solve the inequality and enter your solution as an inequality comparing the variable to the solution. -33+x<-33


How can you check to see if a number is part of the solution set of an inequality?

You replace the variable by the number, do all specified calculations, and then check whether the resulting inequality is true or false. This is basically not very different from checking a solution of an equation.


What is artificial variable?

This are variable introduce into equation as well as to inequality where a surplus variable is introduced.


What is any and all values of the variable that satisfies an equation inequality system of equations or system of inequalities?

They make up the solution set.


What is slack variable?

Slack variable is a variable that is added to a constraint to switch form an inequality to equatlity equation.


What must be done get a variable alone on one side of an equation or inequality in order to solve the equation or inequality the answeranswer has eighteen letters with s being the second?

isolate the variable


a number when substituded in to an open sentence makes a true statement?

An equation or an inequality that contains at least one variable is called an open sentence. ... When you substitute a number for the variable in an open sentence, the resulting statement is either true or false. If the statement is true, the number is a solution to the equation or inequality.
