A system of linear equations that has one unknown is a set of equations that all depend on the same variable. An example is y = 1 + 3x and y = 4 + 7x.

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

How do you figure out if an equation is a linear equation?

An equation is linear if the highest power of the unknown in the equation is 1for example an equation with just a variable to the power one such as x, y and so on is linear but one with x2, y2 and above is not linear

Whats the difference between a linear equation and a system of linear equations?

Quite simply, the latter is a group of the former.A system of linear equations is several linear equations taken together, each using the same group of unknowns. Usually, such a system provides one linear equation for each unknown (x, y, z, et al) that must be found (more complex systems can exist, though). You can use and manipulate these linear equations as you would a single linear equation to help solve for the unknowns. One way is to reduce all but one of the unknowns so that each can be expressed in terms of the remaining unknown and then solve for the remaining unknown which would in turn give you the others.
