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

Can ax plus by equals c be a direct variation if a and b and c does not equal 0?

No, direct variation is "y=ax." In direct variation a equals any real constant, b=1, and c must equal zero. If any of thee conditions are changed, it is not direct variation.

There is only one equation that is given in the question and that equation is not a direct variation.

Is 2x plus 3y equals 0 a direct variation?

Direct variation refers to two variable quantities have a constant (unchanged) ratio, in which a variable "varies directly with the other."In order to have a direct variation, the constant of variation must be not equal to 0 in the equation y=kx, where k is the constant.When you try to put 2x+3y=0 into that formula (y= form), you get:2x+3y=03y=-2x ;Subtract the 2xy=(-2/3)x ;Divide by 3Your constant of variation is -2/3, and since it is less than 0, it is does variate directly. Therefore, y varies directly as x.

How do you solve the direct variation y equals 5x plus 1?

y = 5x + 1 is nota direct variation.y = 5x + 1 is nota direct variation.y = 5x + 1 is nota direct variation.y = 5x + 1 is nota direct variation.

Find the constant variation for -3x plus 2y equals 0?

2y - 3x = 0Put into Slope-Intercept form:2y = 3xDivide by 2:y = 3/2 * x = 1.5x3/2, or 1.5 is the constant of variation.

Does y plus 2 equals x show direct variation?

No, y+2=x does not show direct variation. In direction variation you need to be able to multiply y by something to get x. In the question y+2=x, you have to add 2 to y to get x, which is not multiplying.)

Can y equals x plus 3 be a direct variation?
