No. Chances are it will be the other way around: if you are bad at math, you stand a good chance of failing calculus or linear algebra. You will perform best at calculus and algebra if you have a strong math background.

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

Are calculus and linear algebra courses hard for an individual who got an a plus in algebra?

you don't go from algebra to calculus and linear algebra. you go from algebra to geometry to advanced algebra with trig to pre calculus to calculus 1 to calculus 2 to calculus 3 to linear algebra. so since you got an A+ in algebra, I think you are good.

Will you fail calculus if you are good at algebra?

You'll certainly not fail BECAUSE you are good at algebra - you need to know algebra well, to understand calculus. So, it is not guaranteed that you will succeed, but if you are good at algebra, your chances are certainly a lot better than if your are not good at algebra.

Is it true that if you are good at algebra you will fail calculus?

No not necessarily so.

What do you need to study physics?

A strong math background (calculus, linear algebra, etc.) and a good brain.

Is it true that if you are good at math you will fail physics?

No, not true. However, you will find it very hard to excel in physics if you are a poor in algebra, calculus, vector calculus and differential equations.

Is it true that if you are good at algebra you will have problems with calculus?

False. What makes calculus "hard" is the Algebra. If you have a good understanding of Algebra, you will not struggle in calculus, especially considering the fact that the fundamentals of the class- Calculus 1- aren't very difficult to grasp.

Is it true that if you are good at math when it comes to statistics and algebra but bad at 1000 word essays you will fail calculus physics chemistry and engineering?

No; it is false.

Are you bad at calculus if you are good at basic mathematics and algebra?

Oh, please... How would being good at something make you bad at something else? That just doesn't make sense. Specifically in the case of calculus, you NEED math and algebra, so:If you have trouble with algebra, you will also have trouble with calculus, andIf you are good at algebra, your chances at calculus are much better.

Will calculus be hard for you as an individual if you got an A plus in algebra?

There is no way to know. Some aspects of calculus depend on a good understanding of algebra, others don't. It all depends on which aspects of algebra you were good at and also whether or not you retain that edge.

Will you do well in calculus if you are good at basic math and computer science math which is boolean algebra with circuits?

Being good at basic math will definitely help with Calculus. Boolean algebra is fairly different from Calculus, so it is hard to say how much it will help. Boolean algebra does help with some critical thinking skills, which will be helpful in Calculus to an extent.

Is it true that if you are good at algebra calculus physics and engineering will be difficult for you?

Yes, that is true.

Is it true that if you are good at mathematics and algebra you will fail chemistry?

No, there is no reason why you should fail in this case.
