An inconsistent equation (or system of equations) is one that has no possible solutions. That is precisely why we call it inconsistent; there is no solution set that can be substituted for its variable or variables that will make the equation (or system) true.

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 are the possible solutions for a pair of linear equation?

Any system of linear equations can have the following number of solutions: 0 if the system is inconsistent (one of the equations degenerates to 0=1) 1 if the system is linearly independent infinity if the system has free variables and is not inconsistent.


How many solutions does an inconsistent system of equations have?

If a system is inconsistent it cannot have any solutions.A system of equations is considered inconsistent when the lines are parallel which means they never intersect so there are no solutions.A system is considered consistent when they intersect at one point and have one solution (Also known as an independent system of equations).Dependent Systems are when the lines coincide (the same equation) so they have an infinite number of solutions.
