You can't unless the numerators are equal. In that case, the fraction with the larger denominator is smaller.

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

How can knowing the GCF and LCM help you when you add subtract and multiply fraction?

Knowing the LCM of the denominators of unlike fractions will help you find the least common denominator, a necessary step in adding and subtracting them. Knowing the GCF of a numerator and denominator will tell you if the fraction can be reduced.


How can you tell a fraction is greater than another?

Two ways: If they're unlike fractions, convert them to like fractions with a common denominator and compare numerators. Convert them to decimals by dividing their denominators into their numerators and see which is greater.
