No they do not, take a big Prime number and compare it to a smaller composite number. The number 6833 as only two factors (divisors), namely 1 and itself. But the number 68 which is much smaller has more factors or divisors. 68 has 2 and 4 and 17 and 1 and itself which is already more divisors than 6833.

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

Composite numbers have more than two of what?

Divisors. Primes are divisible by themselves, and one. Composite numbers also have other divisors.

Is an organism bigger than a a tissue?

To answer this question as it is written: not necessarily. An organism (bacterium) can be smaller than tissue (the cartilage in my ears). By definition, an organism is more COMPLEX than a tissue, but not necessarily bigger.

What numbers less than 100 have 3 divisors?

All numbers of the from p2 where p is a prime. So 4, 9, 25 and 49. All the rest have fewer or more.

Assuming I understand your question, the answer is not necessarily. For example, the factors of 24 are 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, but the only factor of 25 is 5.

What are coprimes?

Coprimes, or relative primes, are two or more numbers that share no common divisors. To determine whether numbers are relatively prime, find their greatest common denominaotr. If it's one, they're coprime.

What is the defintion of composite numbers?

Any number having more than two factors or divisors is a composite number. A prime number has exactly two divisors, 1 and the number itself, and 1 is not considered to be a prime nor a composite because it has only 1 proper factor.

Is 34 bigger than 13?

Yes, 34 is a bigger number than 13. It represents more than 13, but in fractions, 13 is a bigger number. 1/13 is bigger than 1/34. So here is the answer: In positive numbers, yes. In fractions, no. In negative numbers, no.

What is the greartest common divisor of 231?

A single number cannot have a greatest common divisor because "common" refers to divisors that two or more numbers have in common. You have only one number.

Why do you have to learn about greatest common divisors?

In math, the greatest common divisor (GCD) of two or more non-zero integers, is the largest positive integer that divides the numbers without a remainder.

What is the greatest common divisor of 132?

You need at least two numbers to find a GCF.

What are 2 almost perfect numbers between 5 and 20?

Perfect numbers are numbers where all the factors add to that number. For example 6's factors are 1,2, and 3 and 1+2+3=6. Therefore the next perfect number isn't until 28 which is 1,2, 4, 7, 14 where 1+2+4+7+14= 28 An almost perfect number is a number which, when adding all of its proper divisors (all divisors except himself), gives you one less, or one more then the number itlself. Up to now all known almost perfect numbers are 2^n. So to answer your question, the 2 almost perfect numbers between 5 and 20 are 8 and 16. Divisors of 8: 1,2,4 -----> 1+2+4=7 Divisors of 16: 1,2,4,8 -----> 1+2+4+8=15

Do larger numbers always have more prime factors?

Not necessarily. 73 has far fewer prime factors than 72.
