"Or more generally, as the multiplied number doesn't equal zero and did not change, the number it was multiplied by must equal 1."

Or perhaps I should simply stick to using F and D instead of 'number' or 'term'

]]>So they can't all be terms, or you've got a pretty dire definition going on there.

]]>If a, b and c can only take one value each then they are all constants. Unknown constants perhaps, but constants nonetheless.

I think your sentence makes sense, but I'm not sure because I don't know what context it's in. Also, if you're constructing some kind of proof then you'd better watch out for when the multiplied term was equal to 0, because then your statement isn't necessarily true.

]]>"Or more generally, as the multiplied term did not change, the term it was multiplied by must equal 1."

]]>a + b = c

...a, b, and c are terms.

However, if you have the equation...

a × b = c

...would you still be able to call a, b, and c terms? Would the product of a and b mean that they are the **same** term?

Also, are variables ANY pronumerals representing unknown values or are they only pronumerals which constantly change.

i.e. For y=mx+c, are all variables?

i.e. For a+b=c, where Each Letter Has 1 Possible Value, are any or all variables?

Thanks.
