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

Is the LCM of a prime number and a composite number a multiple of the prime number?

Yes, and of the composite number. LCM stands for Least Common Multiple. It's a multiple that's common to both of them.


What is the least common multiple of 20 and 41?

LCM of a prime number and a composite number is always equal to their product if the composite number is not a multiple of the prime number. Here, 41 is a prime number and 20 is a composite number. Therefore LCM(20,41) = 20 x 41 = 820


What is the least common multiple of 14 and 23?

LCM of a prime number and a composite number is equal to their product if the composite number is not a multiple of the prime number. Here, 14 is not a multiple of 23. So, LCM of 14 & 23 = 14x23 = 322

What is the least common multiple of 5 and 27?

LCM of 27 & 5 = 27 x 5 = 135. LCM of a prime number and a composite number is equal to their product if the composite number is not a multiple of the prime number.

What Method used to find composite numbers?

To find a composite number, check if the number can be divided by 2,3,4,5, ect. If it can, it`s composite. If not, it`s prime.


How do you find the composite number?

Factor it. Once you find a third factor, it's composite.


What is the LCM of 3420?

Another number is needed to find LCM


What is the lcm of 5 and 49?

LCM of a prime number and a composite number is equal to their product if the latter is not divisible by the former. 5 is a prime number and 49 is a composite number. 49 is not divisible by 5. So, LCM(5,49) = 5 x 49 = 245. Actually the reason behind this is that both(5 and 49) do not share any common factors except 1, so the LCM is equal to the product.
