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 it possible to have a fraction for your slope?

Yes, the slope can be a fraction; and can be less than one or negative.


How do you find slope using rise and run in a picture?

The slope is the rise over the run, like a fraction. Rise is the numerator, run is the denominator. That gives you a fraction. Then just divide if you want a number.


Can a slope be a fraction?

yes, slope can be fraction. It's like -1, -1/3 , 4/5 , 4 and so on.

The slope of line a is 3 what is the slope of a line perpendicular to a?

To find the slope of a perpendicular line, take the negative reciprocal of the slope of the given line. (Flip the top and bottom of the fraction and change the sign.) The slope of 3 can be written as 3/1. The slope of a line that is perpendicular is -1/3.


What is the slope of line that is perpendicular to the slope -2 3?

To find the slope of a perpendicular line, take the negative reciprocal of the slope of the given line. (Flip the top and bottom of the fraction and change the sign.) The slope of a line that is perpendicular to a line with a slope of -2/3 is 3/2, (or 11/2 or 1.5).

Can slope be written as a whole number instead of a fraction?

Only if it happens to BE a whole number. As you probably know, you can't "convert" a fraction to a whole number, without losing precision. But the slope may well happen to be a whole number, such as 1, 2, 3, -1, etc. (or close enough to a whole number).


What is the slope of a line in degree measure rather than a fraction?

It is simply the arctan transformation of the fraction.


How do you find slope and y-intercept?

Slope of vertical and horizontal linesThe slope of a vertical line is undefined. This is because any vertical line has a x or "run" of zero. Whenever zero is the denominator of the fraction in this case of the fraction representing the slope of a line, the fraction is undefined. The picture below shows a vertical line (x=1)The slope of a horizontal line is zeroThis is because any horizontal line has a . Y or "rise" of zero. Therefore, regardless of what the run is (provided its' not also zero!), the fraction representing slope has a zero in its numerator. Therefore, the slope must evaluate to zero. Below is a picture of a horizontal line...you can see that it does not have any 'rise' to it.Formula to find the slope of a lineExample 1of the Slope of A lineThe slope of a line through the points (1, 2) and (2, 5) is 3 because every time that the line moves up three (the change in y or the rise) the line moves to the right (the run) by 1.Illustrated Example TwoThe slope of a line going through the point (1,2) and the point (4,3) is 1/3.


How do you solve slope and equations?

The slope is the rise/over run of a line. The equation of a line is usually written in the form y=mx+b where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept. To find the slope, you can take two points on a line, find how much the line goes up (or down) between the two, and divide it by how much the lines moves to the right. Usually the slope is left in the simplest fraction form.
