Not if either of the numbers is between 0 and 1.

5*0.5 = 2.5 is not greater than 5

0.3*0.4 = 0.12 is smaller than both multiplicands.

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

The product of two positive numbers is greater than either number?

The product of any numbers greater one is greater than either.


Is the product of two positive numbers greater than either number?

A positive number is any number greater than zero. 1 is a positive number, so is 2, 2.5, 3.14159, 11, 11.25 etc 0.5 is a positive number. The product of two positive numbers is the result of multiplying them together. * 2 x 3 = 6 (the product). In this case the product is greater than either number. But... * 0.5 x 0.25 is 0.125. ~In this case the product is actually smaller than either of the two numbers! * Or 0.5 x 10 = 5 . Here the product is greater than 0.5 but smaller than 10. So the answer is ...sometimes!


Why do numbers have both positive and negative roots?

because you can get a positive number as EITHER a product of 2 positive numbers OR the product of the negatives of the SAME 2 numbers; the product of 2 negative numbers is positive.

Is the product of two numbers is always greater than either number. a math question.?

No. If one of the numbers is 0 it is less; if one of the numbers is 1 it is the same as one of them; otherwise the product is greater than either


Is the product of 2 positive numbers greater than either number?

Not always. Here are counterexamples: Cases involving 1: 1 x 1 = 1 1 x 3 = 3 Cases involving positive numbers less than 1: 0.5 x 10 = 5 0.5 x 0.5 = 0.25 Note that here we have positive numbers that are less than or equal to 1. When either number is less than 1, the product will not be greater than both numbers. Also, if either number is equal to 1, the product will be equal to the larger of the original numbers. A modified statement is the product P of two positive real numbers x and y such that x, y > 1, is greater than both x and y.
