Sure. You can always 'solve for' a variable, and if it happens to be the

only variable in the equation, than that's how you solve the equation.

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

When you find the value of a variable you solve or check an equation?

when you find the value, you SOLVED the equation. you CHECK the equation when you substitute the value in the variables place and check that the equation is true.

Write and solve an equation to find the value of the variable 104 137 154 x mean 130?

An equation to find the value of the variable 104, 137, 154 and x with a mean of 130 is: (104 + 137 + 154 + x)/4 = 130 395 + x = 130 * 4 x = 145.


If a function uses variables other than x and y for its input and output variables you take the original equation and solve for the output variable to find the inverse?

False


How do you solve a simultaneous equation with 3 variables?

You cannot have a simultaneous equation: you must have 2 or more equations for there to be any simultaneity.The simplest method to solve them is to invert the matrix of coefficients but this requires you to know matrix algebra and the question suggests tha you are not that advanced.In that case, express any one of the variables in terms of the other two. Substitute the resulting expression in the other equation(s). Repeat until you have only one variable. Find its value and substitute in the previous equation. That will then enable you to find a second variable. And so on.

Can you solve for a variable in an expression?

No, you can only simplify an expression. To solve for a variable, it must be in an equation.


Can you solve a variable with an equation?

When an equation has a variable in it (only one), then there are only certainvalues the variable can have that will make the equation a true statement."Solving" the equation means finding those values for the variable.


What does SOLVE stand for in math?

"Solve an equation" means "find out, for which values of the variable or variables is the equation true".


What does solve the equation mean?

Find values for the variable that satisfy the equation, that is if you replace those values for the variable into the original equation, the equation becomes a true statement.


How do you solve an equation with a variable that is a fraction?

You solve the equation the same way as you would any other equation. Whether the variable is a fraction or otherwise will only become clear once you solve the equation. In other words, you don't initially KNOW whether the solution will be a fraction or not.


How can you find a variable in math?

You find, or construct, an equation or set of equations which express the unknown variable in terms of other variables. Then you solve the equation(s), using algebra.You find, or construct, an equation or set of equations which express the unknown variable in terms of other variables.

How does writing equivalent equations help you solve a system of equations?

You can write an equivalent equation from a selected equation in the system of equations to isolate a variable. You can then take that variable and substitute it into the other equations. Then you will have a system of equations with one less equation and one less variable and it will be simpler to solve.
