No, all numbers with a zero in the one's place are divisible by at least 1, themselves, and 2, which means they cannot be prime.

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

What are the only 4 possibilities for the ones-place digits of all primes greater than 5?

The possibilities for a digit in the ones place of a prime number greater than 5 are 1, 3, 7, and 9. If a 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8 is in the ones place, the number is divisible by 2, so it would not be prime. If a 5 is in the ones place, the number is divisible by 5, so it would not be prime.

How can you tell that 28655 isn't a prime number?

Any number that has a 5 or 0 in the ones place is divisible by 5. If a number is evenly divisible by another number, it is NOT prime.

What is 986.91 to the nearest whole number?

A whole number has no decimal places, so you'll be rounding to the ones place. The digit after the 6 in the ones place is greater than 5, so the number 6 is rounded up to 7. Therefore, the nearest whole number is 987.

How can you tell 32 and 95 are not prime numbers without finding their factors?

32 is an even number (look at the ones place). The only even prime is 2. 95 has 5 as a factor (again look at the ones place). Multiples of 5 have a 0 or 5 in the ones place.That is how you figer out if 32 and 95 in not a prime number.

Does rounding to the nearest whole number mean rounding to the ones place?

Yes if the number includes decimals

Why numbers with a five in the ones place are not prime numbers?

All but the number five are multiples of 5.

What is the whole number 60.82?

look to the place value just to the right of the one asked for...the whole number. "One whole" is "0," or the number in the "ones place..." The rule for rounding states that you must look one place value to the right (8) and decide whether that number is 5 or more (which it is). therefore, we round the "ones place" UP one digit to a "1." 60.82 rounded to the nearest whole number is 61, or 61.00.

When you multiply a whole number by 10 what is always true about the ones place?
