Two events are disjoint if they cannot occur together. In set terms, their intersection is a null set.

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

Event A has probability 0.4 event B has probability 0.5 If A and B are disjoint then the probability that both events occur is?

If two events are disjoint, they cannot occur at the same time. For example, if you flip a coin, you cannot get heads AND tails. Since A and B are disjoint, P(A and B) = 0 If A and B were independent, then P(A and B) = 0.4*0.5=0.2. For example, the chances you throw a dice and it lands on 1 AND the chances you flip a coin and it land on heads. These events are independent...the outcome of one event does not affect the outcome of the other.

Yes,Because not all disjoint no equivalent other have disjoint and equivalent

Not necessarily. For a counterexample, A and C could be the same set.

What is joint and disjoint set?

Two sets are said to be "disjoint" if they have no common element - their intersection is the empty set. As far as I know, "joint" is NOT used in the sense of the opposite of disjoint, i.e., "not disjoint".

What is disjoint?

A disjoint event is an event that can not happen at the same time

What is disjants set?

Sets are not disjants, they are disjoint. And two sets are disjoint if they have nothing in common. For example, the set {1,3,5} has nothing in common with the set {2,4,6}. So they are disjoint.

Addition rule for probability of events A and B?

If they're disjoint events: P(A and B) = P(A) + P(B) Generally: P(A and B) = P(A) + P(B) - P(A|B)

Is the union of disjoint sets is always the empty set?

No, only if both sets are empty. The intersection of disjoint sets is always empty.

What are the difference between joint set and disjoint set?

The difference between joint sets and disjoint sets is the number of elements in common. A disjoint set, in math, does not any elements in common. A joint set must have at least one number in common.

What are joint and disjoint sets?

Joint sets are sets with common element/s. Disjoint sets are sets without any common element/s.
