Let a and b represent the numbers.

ab = 185

a + b = 42

From this get b = 42 - a.

Substitute into ab = 185.

a(42 - a) = 185

-a2 + 42a - 185 = 0

a2 - 42a + 185 = 0

Factoring, we get (a - 5)(a - 37) = 0

Therefore the two numbers are 5 and 37.

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

1, 3 The above solution is wrong! 1+3=4 ok. But what about product? 1x3 = 3 and not 13. So the answer is wrong. The right answer is 2+3i and 2-3i. Of course the numbers are not real numbers but they are complex.
