We need to solve for "n" in 41-2n = 2 + n. Lets begin by getting the variable and constants on their own sides.

41-2n = 2 + n. Lets take the variable to the right side (since the value would be more positive) and the constant to the left.

Lets subtract 2 from each side.

(41-2) - 2n = 2+(-2) + n

39 - 2n = n

Now lets bring the variable over to the left side by adding 2n.

39 - 2n + 2n = n + 2n

39 = 3n

Finally lets solve for n. Since its being multiplied to n lets divide it.

39/3 = 3n/3

13 = n.

So our answer is - 41 - 2n = 2 + n; N = 13.

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
