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 are the three categories of integers?

The set of integers is divided into three subsets. One is the positive integers. Another is the negative integers. The last subset has one element -- zero. In sum, integers are composed of the positive integers, the negative integers, and zero.


What are subsets in math?

A set of which all the elements are contained in another set. The set of even numbers is a subset of the set of integers.


Which set represent the integers?

The least common factor of any set of integers is 1.


Is the set of integers a finite or an infinite set?

The set of integers is an infinite set as there are an infinite number of integers.


What is the difference between least common multiples and least common factors?

The least common multiple, or LCM, is the smallest positive integer that all the members of a given set of numbers will divide into evenly with no remainder. The least common factor of any set of integers is 1.

Integers


What is a set of numbers that includes 1 but not zero?

The set of positive integers contains 1 but not zero. Within the set of integers, there is the subset of positive integers, the subset of negative integers and the subset with a single element in it - zero. There are a zillion other sets that could be specified that meet the conditions set down in the question. The one cited is an easy one.


Is there a smallest integer?

1 is the smallest positive integer. But if you include negative integers, there is no smallest.


How do you understand LCM?

The LCM for a set of numbers is the smallest positive integer such that each element in the set divides it evenly.


What are the smallest portions of an element?

The smallest part of an element that has the properties of that element is the atom.
