To work out the simplest form of 100/1000, you merely cancel out the zeroes. 100/1000 = 100/1000. Note that it is 1/10, not 1/1 as you can only cancel out two of the three zeroes in 1000 as there are only two in 100.


This method doesn't work with fractions that don't have a lot of zeros

above and below.

A much better way of explaining the process is: Divide the numerator

and denominator of the fraction by any common factors they have.

That's why you learn common factors before you get heavily into fractions.

In the example above, the common factor of the numerator and denominator is 100 .

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
