no. direct variation implies that you can simplify the problem into several forma which are equivalent to y/x = k in which k is called the constant of variation.

one of these equivalent forms would by

y = kx + 0 (slope intercept form) in which the y intercept must be 0

rearranging your equation gives a y- intecept of -14/35 which reduces to -2/5

since this is not zero. this is not direct variation.

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
