Best Answer

You must find the slope, if it is positive, then the line is always increasing.

If it is negative, then the line is always decreasing.

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

Which direction would the graph of y-x plus 2 plus 3 open?

The question contains an expression, not an equation. An expression does not have a graph. Furthermore, even if it were an equation, its form suggests that it would be a linear equation and a linear equation does not open in any direction.

How do you figure out the equation of a table with a graphic calculator?

It depends on which calculator! If the data is linear, you can estimate the slope of the line and the y-intercept from graphing the data. By graphing the data, you will be able to tell if it forms a straight line or not.

How is graphing a linear inequality the same as graphing a linear equality?

What is the difference between a linear function and a quadratic equation?

A linear equation describes a line like 2x+1=y. If you were to graph that equation, then it would give you a line. A quadratic equation is like x^2+2x+1=y. Graphing this equation would give you a U shaped graph called a parabola.
