### Multivariable Polynomials

1) If (x,y) satisfies the simultaneous equations

and
, where x and y may be complex numbers, determine all possible values of
.

2)Determine a constant k such that the polynomial

is divisible by x+y+z.

Thank you!

Hi;

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.
