NO, but that is a great question since probability is often expressed as a fraction. Here is the difference. If P(x) is the probability that even x happens, this value must be between 0 and 1. So fractions such as 1/2 or 2/1112 are all fine. Many fractions, such as 4/3 cannot be a probability since they are greater than one. Similarly, -1/2 cannot be a probability value since it is less than 0/

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What is the difference between a probability and a fraction?

The probability is always a fraction except when it is 0 or 1. If a probability = 1 then it will definitely happen. If the probability is 0 then it will not happen. If you toss a fair coin the probability of heads is 1/2, and the probability of tails is 1/2. These fractions are representations of the probabilities. Not all fractions are representative of probabilities. Fractions can be used to represent a portion of a whole. Like what portion of a class is boys, and what portion is girls: If there are 8 boys and 7 girls, then the 8/15 of the class is boys, and 7/15 of the class is girls.

How is adding like fractions and adding unlike fractions the same?

If the denominators are not the same, then you have to use equivalent fractions which do have a common denominator . To do this, you need to find the least common multiple (LCM) of the two denominators. To add fractions with unlike denominators, rename the fractions with a common denominator. Then add and simplify.
