Yes, because that is how remainder is defined. If the remainder was bigger, you would subtract one (or more) modular values until the remainder became smaller than the modulus.

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 physiologic density of India greater than the arithmetic population?

Physiologic density is always greater than arithmetic density. It is based on the amount of arable land (which is always likely less than the total area), which makes the density greater because it uses a smaller area.


In the answer to a division problem should the remainder be greater than less than or equal to the diviser?

The remainder must always be smaller.


Is the remainder always greater than or less than the divisor?

It SHOULD always be less than the divisor... Otherwise your answer is wrong.


Why is the remainder less than the divisor?

Because if the remainder is greater, then you could "fit" another divisor value into it. if they are equal, then you can divide it easily. Thus, the remainder is always lower than the divisor.


How does a clock use math?

A clock is modular math. It has a base twelve. We use a base ten. If the clock had ten hours in a half day then the remainder when dividing would always be our answer.


Which is greater the geometric mean or the arithmetic mean of 6 and 54?

The geometric mean, if it exists, is always less than or equal to the arithmetic mean. The two are equal only if all the numbers are the same.

Is 1 11 an arithmetic sequence?

Any pair of numbers will always form an arithmetic sequence.


Why when you divid you always need a remainder?

Not always as for example 12/3 = 4 and no remainder but 13/3 = 4 with a remainder of 1


Why is the remainder always less than the divisor?

It must be less else you have not divided properly; you could divide again 1 or more times!If the remainder is equal to the divisor (or equal to a multiple of the divisor) then you could divide again exactly without remainder. If the remainder is greater but not a multiple of the divisor you could divide again resulting in another remainder.E.g. Consider 9/2. This is 4 remainder 1. Let's say our answer was 3 remainder 3; as our remainder "3" is greater than the divisor "2" we can divide again so we have not carried out our original division correctly!


How do you determine if a sequence is arithmetic?

The sequence is arithmetic if the difference between every two consecutive terms is always the same.
