First I'm sorry in the way I sounded you should post whatever pleases

I tried again (egg on my face) the equations are well formed that was
my fault.

I see using Eliminate on parts of the equations that m,n eliminate
completely.  I imagine if Elimanate is used long enough on the whole
equation it will remove them all completely, assuming it ever

I have no time to check or proof it, I'm guessing the number of roots
for the eq'n you gave is is 3 and the others fall out because of the
way you asked the question and because m and n appear in patterns
sequentially in the terms (it isn't true in general for the polynomial
of any form).  Which is why if I remove the head or tail m and n are

I don't know a law of elimination that applies off the top of my head
I'd have to look it up.  You could use a divide and conquer strategy.

Nice question actually.
