I'm reading the second book of the Millennium trilogy by Stieg Larson. The story starts with a paragraph about equations. Can you complete the gaps? Use comments and write your name:
PART 1: Irregular Equations
Equations are classified by the highest (a)________ (value of the exponent) of their unknowns. If this is one, the equation is of (b)________ degree. If this is (c)________, the (d)________ is of second degree, and so on. Equations of higher degree than one yield multiple possible values for their unknown quantities. These values are known as (e)________.
The first-degree equation (the linear equation):
