Divide: (4y^3+2y^2-3y-4)/y

Are the equations y=2x+5 and y=5x+2 consistent, inconsistent, or dependent.

Solver by factoring: x^2=x+20 The two possible solutions possible are in the form of x=a and x=b.  Evaluate a^2+b^2+a+b=

y=2x+5 and y=5x+2  , set them equal to zero, and you get? I cant tell what your question is

(4y^3+2y^2-3y-4) / y  =

(4y^3 / y)  + (2y^2 / y  - (3y) / y  - (4) / y  =

4y^2     + 2y     -    3      -     4 / y

y  = 2x + 5

y  = 5x + 2

We have two lines with different slopes...........they will intersect at some point giving us one solution.....thus......this is a consistent system

x^2  = x + 20    rearrange as

x^2  - x - 20   = 0      fractor

(x - 5)  ( x + 4)  = 0

Setting both factors to 0 and solving for x, the two solutions are x = 5  and x  = -4

So    a^2  + b^2  +  a  +  b   =     (5)^2  + (-4)^2  + 5  +  - 4   =     42
