No because the numerator and the denominator must be multiplied or divided by the same number for a given equivalent fraction

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 equivalent to seven ninths?

Multiply numerator and denominator by the same number - any nonzero number - and you get an equivalent fraction.There are infinite answers, but here are a few:14/18, 21/27, 32/36


What is a nonzero fraction?

Any fraction that has a zero as the numerator equals zero. Any fraction that does not have a zero in the numerator would be a nonzero fraction.


Why is multiplying or dividing the numerator and denominator by the same nonzero number the same as multiplying or dividing the fraction the fraction by 1?

Because doing so is equivalent to multiplying or dividing by x/x, which can be cancelled down to 1.


Does adding the same nonzero number to the numerator and denominator of a fraction produces and equivalent fractions?

No, multiplying does. 2/4 does not equal 4/6 2/4 equals 4/8


Why is multiplying or dividing the numerator and denominator by the same nonzero number the same as multiplying or dividing the fraction by 1?

because of mathematical equivalence: it doesn't change the result

Why is multiplying or dividing the numerator and denominator by the same nonzero number the same as muiplying o viding the fraction by 1?

Because the ratio between the two numbers is not changed when you multiply both by the same non-zero number.


Why are natural numbers rational numbers?

Natural numbers are a special kind of Rational numbers. Rational numbers can be expressed as a fraction. (Positive) fractions with the same (nonzero) numerator and denominator are natural numbers, for example 9/9 = 1.


Why the definition of a fraction restricts the denominator to being a nonzero integer?

Because division by zero is not defined and if the denominator were zero, we would be dividing by zero.


What fractions are equal to 1?

Any nonzero fractions where the numerator and denominator are the same number, are equal to 1. For example, 2/2 is equal to 1, or 3/3, 4/4, and so on.


What kind of number that cannot be written with an integer numerator and nonzero integer denominator called in math?

This kind of number is called "irrational", meaning (to a mathematician!) "not a ratio."


Definition for like denominator?

Like denominator is the same denominator as the nonzero numbers.


Is the ratio of two natural numbers always a natural number?

No.Natural numbers by definition are whole: integers. However, if the numerator cannot be divided evenly by the denominator, or even if the numerator is less than the denominator, then it is impossible for such a ratio to result in an integer. Such ratios cannot simplify into natural numbers. (Note: This assumes that 0 is not a natural number--there is a disagreement over its membership. If 0 is considered a natural number, than any ratio with a 0 in the numerator but anything else in the denominator results in 0. A ratio with a nonzero numerator and a zero denominator is undefined. A 0/0 ratio is considered an indeterminate form and goes into calculus).


What is a vulgar fraction?

A fraction written with an integer numerator placed over a (nonzero) integer denominator is called a vulgar fraction. Vulgar fractions are also known as common fractions or simple fractions. Examples are 2/5 and 7/3. In those examples, the numerators are 2 and 7, the denominators are 5 and 3, all of which are integers. Simple/common/vulgar fractions are distinguished from compound fractions, from complex fractions, from mixed numerals, from decimal fractions, and from irrational fractions. Examples of fractions that are not common fractions are: * 0.75 -- decimal fraction * (3/4) / 2 -- complex fraction * (3/4) / (2/3) -- complex fraction * (1 1/2) / 2 -- complex fraction with mixed numeral in numerator * 3/4 of 5/7 -- compound fraction * 75% --- which equals 75/100, but written as a percent, it has neither a numerator nor a denominator * pi/4 -- irrational fraction. The distinction between common fractions and fractions that are not common is NOT the same as the distinction between proper fractions and improper fractions (which is explained below, but which is not needed to understand what a common fraction is). Common fractions can be either proper or improper. ------ If the absolute value of the numerator (the number on top) is less than the absolute value of the denominator (the number on the bottom) the fraction is called a PROPER fraction.. Examples are 2/3 and and -2/5. If the absolute value of the numerator is greater than the absolute value of the denominator (the number on the bottom) the fraction is called IMPROPER. Examples are 3/2 and and -5/2. Improper fractions can be converted to a mixed numeral, that is, an integer plus a fraction. For example 7/3 is equal to 2 1/3.


What are the fractions equivalent to 1 half?

All fractions having the form n / (2 * n) where n is a nonzero integer are equivalent to the fraction 1/2. This can actually be generalized to the form x / (2 * x) where x is a nonzero number (e.g. real number, complex number).


Does every nonzero fraction has a multiplicative inverse?

Yes


Explain why the definition of a fraction restricts the denominator to being a nonzero integer?

You can't divide by zero. 3/4 is 3 divided by 4 or 0.75. 7/4 is 7 divided by 4 or 1.75


How can you write any nonzero whole number as a fraction?

No, you cannot write any irrational number as a fraction.


When multiplying a nonzero fraction by its reciprocal the product is call?

When you multiply a nonzero fraction by its reciprocal you get 1. Take this example.Lets say you have a fraction called (a/b). The reciprocal of that fraction would be (b/a). If you multiply the two you'd get (a/b)*(b/a)=(ab/ab). Anything divided by itself is 1.


Why is multiplying or dividing the numerator and denominator by the same nonzero numberthe same as multiplying or dividing the fraction by 1?

That is how equivalent fractions are made. When fractions are multiplied together, the numerators are multiplied together and the denominators are multiplied together. When the numerator and denominator of a fraction are both multiplied by the same non-zero number, the effect is of multiplying the original fraction by the non-zero number over the non-zero number, but any number over itself is 1, thus it is the same as multiplying by 1: let a/b be a fraction and let n be the non-zero number, then: (a x n)/(b x n) = a/b x n/n = a/b x 1 since any number divided by itself is 1. Dividing by the same non-zero number is the same effect. However, in this case, it is a slightly different proof: For this, it needs to be remembered that a fraction a/b is the same as a ÷ b. And to divide by a fraction, the divisor is inverted (numerator and denominator swap places) and then multiplied. let a/b be a fraction and n be the non-zero number, then: (a ÷ n)/(b ÷ n) = (a ÷ n) ÷ (b ÷ n) = a/n ÷ b/n = a/n x n/b = (a x n)/(n x b) = (a x n)/(b x n) (since multiplication is commutative) = a/b x n/n = a/b x 1 (as before).
