If the integers have the same sign, add the numbers (ignoring the signs*) together and then keep the sign.


4 + 5 = 9

-3 + -8 = -(3 + 8) = -11

If the integers have different signs, ignoring the signs* subtract the smaller from the larger and keep the sign of the larger.


-3 + 10 → 10 - 3 = 7

5 + -11 → -(11 - 5) = -6

*Ignoring he signs of the numbers is taking the absolute value of the numbers.

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

Name the rule for dividing integers with different signs?

The value of the quotient of two integers with different signs is the same as if the signs were the same. Because the numbers have different signs, the quotient is negative.
