The factor tree finds the prime factorization of a given number. Combining the prime factorizations of two denominators correctly will give you their least common denominator.

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

find the lowest factor that equals the numerator and denominator.


What is the least common denominator of 2 and 3?

If you're wanting to find a common denominator between fractions with denominators of 3 and 2, then 3 & 2 have only a common factor of 1, so the least common denominator = 2*3 = 6

Is it always necessary to find the least common denominator to compare the sizes of fractions?

When comparing fractions you must find a common denominator; by finding the least common denominator it will keep the numbers (numerators and denominator) smaller .

How do you find the least common denominator of a set of unlike fractions?

least common denominator is nothing but least common multiple of denominators.


How do you find the common denominator of 3 fractions?

Pick two of the fractions and find the Least Common Multiple of those two denominators. Then take that number, and find the Least Common Multiple between that and the third denominator. This number will be the Least Common Denominator between the three fractions.If you don't care to find the Least common denominator, then just take the three denominators, and multiply them together.

That's one fraction. You need at least two to find something in common between them.


How do you find common denominator?

You look at multiples of the numbers on the denominator and usually use the least common multiple.


What is the least common denominator for 34 and 18?

butt Assuming these are two denominators in some problem, the least common denominator would be 17x18 = 306. (because you can find a factor 2 inside 18 to go with 17 to make 34)


How would you take 8 percent make it a fraction with denominator of 100 and than break that down into a fraction in simplest terms?

You write 8 over 100: 8/100. To simplify, look for a common factor between the numerator and the denominator. If you find any, divide numerator and denominator by the common factor. Repeat, until you find no more common factors.You write 8 over 100: 8/100. To simplify, look for a common factor between the numerator and the denominator.
