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

Can a standard deviation of a sample be less than a standard deviation of a population?

Sure it can. But in the survey business, the trick is to select your sample carefully so that they'll be equal, i.e. a sample that is accurately representative of the population.

If the standard error of a sample of 48 is equal to 14.25 the standard deviation is equal to?


Is sample size going to be equal to standard deviation?


True or false a distribution of sample means is normally distributed with a mean equal to the population mean and standard deviation equal to the standard error of the mean?


How does a sample size impact the standard deviation?

If I take 10 items (a small sample) from a population and calculate the standard deviation, then I take 100 items (larger sample), and calculate the standard deviation, how will my statistics change? The smaller sample could have a higher, lower or about equal the standard deviation of the larger sample. It's also possible that the smaller sample could be, by chance, closer to the standard deviation of the population. However, A properly taken larger sample will, in general, be a more reliable estimate of the standard deviation of the population than a smaller one. There are mathematical equations to show this, that in the long run, larger samples provide better estimates. This is generally but not always true. If your population is changing as you are collecting data, then a very large sample may not be representative as it takes time to collect.

What is the standard error of the sampling distribution equal to when you do not know the population standard deviation?

You calculate the standard error using the data.

Can standard deviation equal zero?

Standard deviation can only be zero if all the data points in your set are equal. If all data points are equal, there is no deviation. For example, if all the participants in a survey coincidentally were all 30 years old, then the value of age would be 30 with no deviation. Thus, there would also be no standard deviation.A data set of one point (small sample) will always have a standard deviation of zero, because the one value doesn't deviate from itself at all.!

Can standard deviation equal standard error?

If n = 1.

The square of the standard deviation is equal to?

What are all the values a standard deviation can take?

The standard deviation must be greater than or equal to zero.

Is it possible for the mean and standard deviation to be equal?


Is the standard deviation the same as the mean of absolute distances from the mean?

no the standard deviation is not equal to mean of absolute distance from the mean
