Best Answer

You take the value of the first, and take it away from the second, and depending on the signs that are similar (positive/negative) they can cancel and override each other.

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

if the signs are different then u put the larger sing down then u subtract if if the signs are the same then u put the same sign down then u add

What are the rules of addition?

If you mean integers, well if you have two integers of the same sign that you are adding, add and the sign stays the same. If you have different signs, subtract and keep the sign of the one that has more. Regular numbers you just add them.

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.

What is the rule for subtracting integers with the same signs?

if the signs are the same you must add its opposite.

How do you add pairs of integers with the same sign and with different signs?

If the integers have the same sign, add the numbers (ignoring the signs*) together and then keep the sign. Examples: 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. Examples: -3 + 10 → 10 - 3 = 7 5 + -11 → -(11 - 5) = -6 *Ignoring he signs of the numbers is taking the absolute value of the numbers.

If a and b are integers when is the product positive?

When their signs are the same.

Why is it important to learn how to subtract and add with different integers?

Because otherwise you would only know how to subtract and add with the same integers. Not a particularly useful skill unless just those integers turned up!

What are the rules for adding integers if the signs are the same?

The answer also has the same sign.

How do you add or subtract integers with a different sign?
