The first thing to not is that the only powers of x and y in the equation are one. That means the graph is a straight line. Any two points on a straight line determine the whole of the straight line. So solve the equation for x = 0 and for y = 0.


when x = 0, the equation becomes y = 8 - 0 ie y = 8

so (0, 8) is a point on the graph.


when y = 0, the equation becomes 0 = 8 - x ie x = 8

so (8, 0) is another point on the graph.

Join up these two points and extend the line further in both directions.

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
