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 you use prime factorization to determine if two numbers are relatively prime?

Once your prime factorization is complete and you discover that there are no numbers in common, the GCF is one and the numbers are declared to be relatively prime.


How can you use the prime factorization of two numbers to determine whether they are relative prime?

If the prime factorizations have no prime factors in common, the numbers are relatively prime.


How can you use the prime factorization of two numbers to determine whether they are relatively prime?

Use the prime factorizations to determine the GCF. If the GCF is 1, the numbers are relatively prime. If the two numbers have no prime factors in common, they are relatively prime.


How does the prime factorization of numbers work?

Prime factorization is a common mathematical tool. One uses prime factorization to determine what prime factors of any given number are. One can practice this tool online.


Do all prime numbers have prime factorization?

There is no need to do prime factorization as prime numbers are already prime.


Why woul you determine prime factorization of only composite numbers?

Since prime numbers only have one prime factor (themselves), they don't have prime factorizations.


What is prime fatorization?

prime factorization is the factorization of numbers


How can you use prime factorization to determine whether two numbers are relatively prime?

If the prime factorizations contain no factors in common (their GCF is 1), the numbers are relatively prime.


Why would you determine the prime factorization of only composite numbers?

Because the prime decomposition of primes is trivial and pointless.


What number has 6 prime numbers in its prime factorization?

30030 has six prime numbers in its factorization (2x3x5x7x11x13).


Is there a prime factorization for prime numbers?

No.


Does the prime factorization of any composite number include prime and composite numbers?

Prime factorization never includes a composite number. All numbers in prime factorization must be prime numbers.
