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

The answer will depend on where "there" is.

Is 50 a perfect abundant or deficient?

Just use the basic definition of "abundant" and "deficient". That is, calculate all the factors of 50 (excluding 50 itself), add them up, then compare whether the result is more or less than 50.

Is 70 a abunant or deficient or perfect?

If the sum of all a number's factors (apart from itself) is equal to the original number, then the number is perfect. If this sum is less than the number, it is deficient. If the sum is more than the number, it is abundant. The factors of 70 are: 1, 2, 5, 7, 10, 14, 35 and 70. 1+2+5+7+10+14+35 = 74. Thus the number 70 is abundant.

There is a one-to-one relationship between even perfect numbers and Mersenne primes. It is unknown whether there are any odd perfect numbers.

How can you describe a number by both the number of its factor and the kind of factors?

There are more than just prime and composite, there are 3 other types which you can describe a number by the kind of factors. They are abundant number, deficient number, and perfect number. An abundant number is a number which if its factors were all added up , the sum would be greater than the number itself. A deficient number is a number in which if all its factors were added up the sum would be less than the number itself. A perfect number is in which a numbers factors are added up and the sum will be the same number as the number itself. Example of abundant number: 12 because these are its factors, 1+2+3+4+6 which equals 16 and 16 is greater than 12. Example of a deficient number: 15 because 15's factors are 1+3+5 which equals 9 and 9 is less than 15. Example of a perfect number: 6 because 6's factors are 1+2+3 which equals 6 and 6 is the same as 6
