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 five negavite two is a positive or negative number?

I am going to say positive. If it is 5 -2 well that is 3, which is positive. Possibly you mean 5 with a small -2 slightly raised after it. That means 5 raised to the power of -2. Any time you have a negative exponent, you can take the reciprocal, and make it positve. So 5^-2 {the ^ symbol means to raise the power of} can be rewritten as 1/(5^2), which is 1/25. And this is a positive number as well.


What is a negative minus a ngeative?

a negative + negative = negative (ex. -10+-10=-20) a positive + negative = a positive or a negative depending on how high the negative number is (ex1. 10+-5=5 , ex2. 10+-15=-5) a positive + positive = a positive "obviously" (ex. 2+2=4) a negative - negative = positive (ex. -5--10=5) because the minus sign and the negative sign automatically turn into an addition sign.

No, or more accurately "not necessarily".A negative to any even power is positive. -2, -4, -6 etc. are even, so a negative number raised to any of those powers will be positive.However, a negative number raised to an odd negative power (-1, -3, -5 etc.) will be negative.


What is the value of 2 with the power of negative 1?

1/2, or .5When you raise a number to a negative power, you are dividing one by that number to the positive version of that power. For example, 5^-6 = 1/(5^6).So, 2^-1 = 1/(2^1), or 1/2, which = .5

If you have a - and a - what do you get?

The answer to this depends on what you are doing with the numbers..... * A negative added to a negative gives a negative (-3) + (-5) = -8 * A negative subtracted from a negative may give either a negative or a positive (-3) - (-5) = +2 (-5) - (-3) = -2 * A negative multiplied by a negative gives a positive (-3) x (-5) = +15 * A negative divided by a negative gives a positive (-3) ÷ (-5) = +0.6
