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 do you subtract improper fraction?

If the denominators (bottom numbers) are the same (eg. 11/6 - 7/6) you just subtract the numerators (top numbers) eg. 11-7=4 so 4/6. If the denominators are different you have to find equivalent fractions where the denominators are the same.

How would you use the multiplication rule to find common denominators?

multiply the nominator and denominator of each fraction by the denominator of the other fraction

Can you add numbers with different numerators?

Yes, 'fractions' with different numerators can be added, but not with different denominators. In the case where you have different denominators, you must find the LCM (lowest common multiple).

What is the LCM of a fraction?

The LCM is essentially the same thing as the lowest common denominator. To find the LCD, find the LCM of the denominators.

How do you find equivalent fractions?

first simplify the fraction then multiply the denominators times the numerators and see if they are equal

What method do we use to find the LCD of two or more fraction?

By finding the lowest common multiple of the denominators.

How do you find the sum or difference with different denominators?

You don't. You find a common denominator and proceed from there.

When you subtract fractions do you subtract the denominator?

No. If the denominators are the same, you subtract the numerators. If the denominators are different you have to find the least common denominator.

How do you find the leaset common denominator?

By finding the lowest common multiple of the different denominators then rearranging the numerators and denominators accordingly.

What must you find to subtract and add with different denominators?

the new denominator

When you add fractions do you have to find a common denominator?

Only if the denominators are different.

What is the common denominators of 2 fiths?

How are common multiple and a common denominator alike and different?

Common denominators are multiples that are being used as denominators. The process to find them is the same.

How do you find the sum or difference of two fractions with different denominators?

find the lowest common denominator

Do you mulitiply the denominators?

First, multiply the numerators and write the product of the numerators above a fraction bar. Next, multiply the denominators and write that product underneath the fraction bar. You don't have to find a common denominator. You do, however, have to reduce your answer to simplest terms.

How do you add mixed numbers with different denominators?

First convert them t top-heavy fractions. Treat these as you would ordinary fractions: find common denominator and so on. At the end, convert the top heave fraction back to a mixed fraction.

what is the meaning of unrelated fraction?

To solve an unrelated fraction you must, numerator multiplied by the numerator and denominator multiplied by denominator. When dividing fractions with the different/unrelated denominators, itโ€™s a little bit more complicated. What you have to do is flip (find the inverse) the second fraction then proceed as if your multiplying the fractions.

What are the steps in subtracting dissimilar fractions?

Step I: Find the LCM of the denominators. Step II: Find equivalent fraction such that the new denominators are the LCM. Step III: Carry out the subtraction on these numerators to arrive at the new numerator. Step IV: New denominator = LCM. Step V: Simplify the fraction.

How do you subtract mixed fractions with different denominators?

You change the mixed fraction to an improper fraction . Then you find the denominators GCF. Then you subtract. Another reply: Converting to an improper fraction is not really necessary, but converting to a common denominator is. Example: 3 1/2 - 1 1/3 = 3 3/6 - 1 2/6 = 2 1/6. In other words, you can subtract the integer part and the fraction part separately.
