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 product of two rational numbers irrational?

The product of two rational number is always rational.


Why is the product of two rational number irrational?

The question is nonsense because the product of two rational numbers is never irrational.


Can the product of two irrational number be a rational numder?

Yes, it can.


What product is true about the irrational and rational numbers?

The product of 2 rationals must be rational. The product of a rational and an irrational is irrational (unless the rational is 0) The product of two irrationals can be either rational or irrational.


Is 10x 3.14 irrational?

The product of two rational numbers, as in this example, is always RATIONAL.However, if you mean 10 x pi, pi is irrational; the product of a rational and an irrational number is ALWAYS IRRATIONAL, except for the special case in which the rational number is zero.


Does there exist an irrational number such that its square root is rational?

No, and I can prove it: -- The product of two rational numbers is always a rational number. -- If the two numbers happen to be the same number, then it's the square root of their product. -- Remember ... the product of two rational numbers is always a rational number. -- So the square of a rational number is always a rational number. -- So the square root of an irrational number can't be a rational number (because its square would be rational etc.).


Is the product of two irrational numbers always an irrational number?

No. The square root of two is an irrational number. If you multiply the square root of two by the square root of two, you get two which is a rational number.


What happens when two irrational numbers are multiplied?

You get a product which can be rational or irrational.


What is the Next to rational and irrational number?

Next to any rational number is an irrational number, but next to an irrational number can be either a rational number or an irrational number, but it is infinitely more likely to be an irrational number (as between any two rational numbers are an infinity of irrational numbers).


What two irrational numbers make a rational number?

The simplest example (of infinitely many) is probably the squareroot of two multiplied by itself equals two. Take any rational number, say 4.177 and divide it with any irrational number, say the square root of 13, and you will get a new irrational number. The product of your two irrational numbers now make a rational number.


Is the product of any two irrational numbers is an irrational?

No. The product of sqrt(2) and sqrt(2) is 2, a rational number. Consider surds of the form a+sqrt(b) where a and b are rational but sqrt(b) is irrational. The surd has a conjugate pair which is a - sqrt(b). Both these are irrational, but their product is a2 - b, which is rational.


When the product of two irrational numbers equals a rational number then what are the factors called?

They are called conjugates.
