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

What is the general rule for multiplying a decimal by a negative integer power of 10?

The decimal point is moved to the left by the value of the power.


Why is multiplying mixed numbers less than dividing mixed numbers with fractions?

It depends on the numbers. For example, dividing by 1 1/2 (one and a half) is exactly the same as dividing by 3/2, since both represent the same number.In general, if you divide by a larger number, the result will be less.


Why do you need to find the reciprocal of the divisor when dividing a fraction?

It is not just in fractions. In general, division can be defined as multiplication by the reciprocal. For example, dividing by 5 is the same as multiplying by 0.2. However, it is mainly in calculations with fractions that this is normally used as a practical way of doing the calculations.


How can you solve an equation to get an equivalent equation?

In general, if you apply the same operation to both sides of an equation, you get an equivalent equation - at least if you do simple things like adding, subtracting, multiplying by a non-zero number, and dividing by some number.


What is a general rule for multiplying fractions and whole numbers?

A general rule for multiplying fractions: You shall not multiply the denominator by the whole number,only the numerator.Another rule is you shall make the whole number as a fraction by putting the whole number as the numerator and 1 as the denominator before multiplying it.


How do you multiply a positive and a negative number?

To multiply a negative and positive just multiply regularly and then make negative ex. 6*-5=-30 In general, here are the rules for multiplying signed numbers: positive x positive = a positive 4 x 5 = +20 positive x negative = a negative 4 x -5 = -20 negative x positive = a negative -5 x 4 = -20 negative x negative = a positive -5 x -4 = +20


Each number below is a solution of the inequality 2x plus 3 and gt7 EXCEPT?

I don't see any numbers below.One method to solve this is to replace each of the numbers in the inequality, do the calculations, and then check whether the inequality is satisfied. Another method is to get the general solution for the inequality, then check with each of the numbers.

How do you solve a inequalities?

It depends on the form of the inequality, 1 or 2 variables etc. But in general, try solving it like an equality but remember to change the less than or greater than signs if you multiply or divide by a negative number. If you want to post an example question, that would be great.


How do you solve linear inequality?

That's going to depend on what statement the inequality itself makes, and on what you are required to find as a solution. There is no general rule for every exercise that involves an inequality. Sadly, you have no other choice but to use your brain every time.


Is 6 a multiple of 3?

iuyfiudtrytrsjituyyes because 3x2 = 6Yes (double). A Multiple generally means you can get there by multiplying by an integer, not just multiplying in general (which would apply to pretty much everything).


Why is dividing by four the same as multiplying by one fourth?

This is just an example of a more general rule: dividing by a number is the same as multiplying by the reciprocal (multiplicative inverse). You might say that division can be DEFINED that way. Here is one way to make it look plausible:Take a number - say, 10 - then multiply it by 4, and then multiply it by 1/4. What do you get? 10 x 4 x 1/4 = 10 x (4 x 1/4) = 10 x 1 = 10 Since the product of a number and its multiplicative inverse, by definition, is 1. But since multiplying by 4 and dividing by 4 are inverse operations, you also get the same result if you first multiply by 4, then divide by 4: 10 x 4 / 4 = 10 (because of the multiplicative inverse)

Why does the inequality sign change when both sides are multiplied or divided by a negative number?

Let's look at two points on the number line, say 2 and 3. Now 2 is 2 units from 0 and 3 is 3 units away from 0 If you multiply by a negative 1, then 2 become -2 and 3 become -3. So they are the same distance from 0 but their positions changes to the opposite side of zero. In general given points A, B on the number line, multiplying by negative one will preserve the distance which is know as the absolute value but move the points to the other side of 0. Now multiplying by a negative number other than one does the same thing but the absolute value is multiplied by the number as well. For example, 2 x-3 is -6. We multiplied the distance form 0 which was 2 by 3 and changed the position. This is called a reflection. So now picture a vertical line, perhaps right down the middle of this page. If I put two point A and B on the right side of the line and put A closer to the line which I will all zero, and B farther, then A

What is the procedure used to solve an equation to get the variable?

Different types of equations require different methods. But a general method, that works in many cases, is to manipulate the equation by adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing both sides of the equation by the same number or expression. The general aim should be to put the variable on one side, and the numbers on the other side.Example:2z + 3 = 11To get rid of the 3, subtract 3 from both sides:2z = 8To get rid of the 2, divide both sides by 2:z = 4Different types of equations require different methods.

How is factoring a polynomial different from multiplying two binomials?

The same way that factoring a number is different from multiplying two factors. In general, it is much easier to multiply two factors together, than to find factors that give a certain product.
