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 a good example of an arithmetic sequence?

An excellent example of an arithmetic sequence would be: 1, 5, 9, 13, 17, in which the numbers are going up by four, thus having a common difference of four. This fulfills the requirements of an arithmetic sequence - it must have a common difference between all numbers.

Is this sequence 10 10.25 10.50625 10.76890625 arithmetic?

No, it is geometric, since each term is 1.025 times the previous. An example of an arithmetic sequence would be 10, 10.25, 10.50, 10.75, 11.

What is a non arithmetic sequence?

An arithmetic sequence in one in which consecutive terms differ by a fixed amount,or equivalently, the next term can found by adding a fixed amount to the previous term. Example of an arithmetic sequence: 2 7 12 17 22 ... Here the the fixed amount is 5. I suppose any other type of sequence could be called non arithmetic, but I have not heard that expression before. Another useful kind of sequence is called geometric which is analogous to arithmetic, but multiplication is used instead of addition, i.e. to get the next term, multiply the previous term by some fixed amount. Example: 2 6 18 54 162 ... Here the muliplier is 3.

What is the difference between a geometric sequence and arithmetic sequence?

Goemetric sequence : A sequence is a goemetric sequence if an/an-1is the same non-zero number for all natural numbers greater than 1. Arithmetic sequence : A sequence {an} is an arithmetic sequence if an-an-1 is the same number for all natural numbers greater than 1.
