the degree is the sum of the exponents. So, -x^4y^3 is degree 7 and yes, the 1st one is a monomial. polynomials have terms separated by + and - signs.

D = 0.40A A = D+E = 0.40A+E so E = 0.60A N = 0.75E = 0.45A S = 5.2A N/S = 0.45/5.2 = 45/520

Nah. Where did you get the 40? 50 * 5/6 = 250/6 = 125/3 so, you have a genuine GP, with a = 72 r = 5/6 So, S = 72/(1 - 5/6) = 72*6 = 432

since two sides are equal, you must have one of 4b=6b-2a+1 4b=a+2b 6b-2a+1=a+2b which can be simplified to 2b-2a = -1 a-2b = 0 3a-4b = 1 also, using the perimeter, 4b + 6b-2a+1 + a+2b = 28 12b-a=27 so, see how the perimeter equation can be matched with one of the others to ...
