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 it called when you make a fraction's numbers larger but the fraction stays the same amount?

the fractions are equivalent


What fraction is larger?

When the fractions are converted to equivalent fractions with the same denominator the one with the larger numerator is the larger fraction.


When fractions have like denominators the larger the what the larger the fraction?

When you have fractions with like denominators, the larger is the one with the larger numerator.

Numerator.


What is irregular fractions?

an irregular fraction is a fraction where the numenator is larger than the denomenator


Is the fraction with the greater than or less than the fraction with the lesser denominator?

To compare two fractions, you convert them to equivalent fractions with the same denominator. Then you can compare their numerators (top parts). In that case, the fraction with the larger numerator is larger.


How can you tell which fractions is greater if both fractions have the same numerator?

Then the fraction with the smaller denominator is larger.


Is a mixed number irrational?

no No; a mixed number is rational. Irrational means it cannot be written as a fraction, but mixed numbers can always be written as (improper) fractions. *By the way, improper fractions are still fractions, despite their degrading name! It just means the fraction's numerator is larger than its denominator.


How do you compare two fractions whose numerators are the same?

If the fractions have the same numerator (top number), then the fraction with the larger denominator (bottom number) is the smaller fraction, which implies that the fraction with the smaller denominator is the larger fraction. For example with 1/2 and 1/4, it can be easily seen that 1/2 is the larger of the two.


Is one third larger than one fourth?

yes. When you are working with fractions like this, the smaller the denominator, the larger the fraction.


What fractions are less than a third?

any fraction where the denominator is larger than 3


If 2 fractions have the same numerator but different denominator how can you tell which is greater?

In that case, and assuming both fractions are positive, the one with the larger denominator is the smaller fraction, because you are dividing by a larger number.


When two fractions have the same denominator. How can you tell which fraction is larger?

By its numerator as for example 3/4 is larger than 1/4


How do you find the difference between two mixed fractions?

Subtract the smaller fraction from the larger one.


How can you compare rational numbers?

Subtract one from the other.If the answer is positive then the first is larger,if the answer is negative, then the second is larger.Rational numbers are numbers that can be expressed as fractions whereas irrational numbers can't be expressed as fractions.


How is a proper fraction and an improper fraction related?

The numerator and denominator in both types of fractions are integers. In a proper fraction the numerator is smaller than the denominator while in an improper fraction the numerator is larger.


Can 11 and 1 eighth be written as a proper fraction?

A fraction is made up of two parts: a numerator (top number) and a denominator (bottom number). There are 3 types of fractions: Proper, Improper, Mixed. A proper fraction is one where the numerator is smaller than the denominator. An improper fraction is one where the numerator is larger or equal to the denominator. A mixed fraction is one with a whole number and a proper fraction together. 11 1/8 is a mixed fraction, and can be written as the improper fraction 89/8. It is impossible to write it as a proper fraction because the numerator is larger than the denominator. Also, all mixed fractions are improper fractions and no improper fractions can be written as proper fractions.


Why cant you have the greatest fraction be less than 1?

You can have fractions larger than 1. For example, 9/8 is a fraction that is larger than 1, as is 100000000000000000000000/3. Thus, the greatest possible fraction in the universe is greater than 1.


What is a fraction of a fraction?

A fraction of a fraction is yet another (usually smaller) fraction. For example 1/4 of 1/3 = (1x1) / (4x3) = 1/12 Only when both or one of the fractions is an "improper" fraction (larger than 1) does the multiplication give a result that is larger than the beginning fractions. For example : 7/4 x 3/5 = 21/20 = 1 1/20


Which is larger a proper fraction or mixed numeral?

Ignoring negative numbers, proper fractions are less than one. Mixed numbers are greater than one.


Why do you compare fractions?

To compare any two fractions they first need to be converted to numbers on a similar basis: Convert both to decimals: the smaller decimal is the smaller fraction. Find equivalent fractions with the same denominator: the fraction with the smaller numerator is the smaller number. Find equivalent fractions with the same numerator: the fraction with the larger denominator is the smaller number. I recommend that the last of these is used for integral reciprocals (comparing 1/2, 1/4, 1/7 etc) or by more proficient users.


What can You noticE about comparing 2 fractions when the numerators are the same?

The larger fraction is the one with the smaller denominator, when the numerators are the same.


What is the meaning of compare fraction?

To compare fractions is to determine which is larger. You can do this by changing both to the same denominator, or converting them to decimals.
