numerators and denominators are both part of a fraction. the numerator is on top and the denominator is on the bottom. for example, in 2/3, 2 is the numerator and 3 is the denominator

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 are denominators and numerators called?

They are called denominators and numerators!

How are all unit fractions alike and different?

Unit fractions all have the same numerators but the denominators can be different.

Why do you multiply numerators and denominators by the same number?

you have to multiply numerators and denominators because whatever you do to the bottom you have to do to the top

If the denominators are different do you add them?

No. Convert them to like denominators and add the numerators.

What is the process of subtracting fractions?

If the denominators are the same, subtract the numerators. If the denominators are different, convert them to equivalent fractions with a common denominator and subtract the numerators.

How do you do a Fraction minus a fraction?

If denominators (bottom numbers) are the same,subtract numerators (top numbers).If not you need to make the denominators the same and then subtract numerators.

Will The LCD of two fractions be the same as the LCM of the numerators of the fractions?

No, the LCM of the denominators.

How do you compare mixed numbers?

First you have to compare the whole numbers. When the whole numbers are the same, compare the fractions. If the denominators of the fraction are the same, compare the numerators. If the denominators are different, convert them to have the least common denominators. Then compare the numerators.

Can you add numbers with different numerators?

Yes, 'fractions' with different numerators can be added, but not with different denominators. In the case where you have different denominators, you must find the LCM (lowest common multiple).

How do you add fractions with different numerators and denominators?

with different denominators, just get their lcd and that will serve as they're denominator.

How you multiply fractions?

To multiply fractions, multiply the numerators by the numerators, and the denominators by the denominators, and then (if possible) simplify the resulting fraction. For example, 2/3 x 4/5 = 8/15
