I have 3 following polynomials (for a coefficient I will just put K becuase they are not important here, but of course I don't mean they are all equal coefficients):
$$K \cdot b c + K \cdot b + K\cdot c + K$$ $$ K \cdot ac + K \cdot a + K \cdot a + K $$ $$ K \cdot ab + K \cdot a + K \cdot b + K $$
So, all three of them are bilinear polynomials with exponents: $(1,1), (1,0), (0,1), (0,0) $ I guess they all share same Newton polytope which is the square with the vertices same as their exponents.
My literature says: "These three equations have two complex solutions. Indeed, the mixed volume of the three Newton squares equals $2$."
Here is my question: I don't understand how the mixed volume of these three squares equals $2$. I thought it's $1$ because of the following: $$Vol(t_1P_1+t_2P_2+t_3P_3)=(t_1+t_2+t_3)^3$$ where $P_1,P_2,P_3$ are all Newton polytopes of mine polynomials - squares with vertices$(1,1),(1,0),(0,1),(0,0)$. Mixed volume is by definition the coefficient of $t_1 \cdots \cdot t_n$ in the volume divided by $n!$. So, in my opinion it would be $6$ divided by $3!$ which is $1$. Where am I making a mistake?
Maybe, if you are reading this and you also don't see a mistake, can you give me an idea of some other method with which I can count the number of solutions of this polynomial system ( but considering that I don't know the coefficients)?
Thank you for your answers.
