Best Answer

Your two equations are:

AX + BY = A - B

BX - AY = A + B + B

Because you have four variables (A, B, X, Y), you cannot solve for numerical values for X and Y. There are a total of four answers to this question, solving each equation for X and Y independently.

First equation:

X = (A - B - BY)/A

Y= (A - B - AX)/B

Second equation:

X = (A +2B +AY)/B

Y = (BX - A - 2B)/A

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
