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 difference between an arithmetic series and an arithmetic sequence?

An arithmetic sequence is a list of numbers which follow a rule. A series is the sum of a sequence of numbers.

What rule is for finding terms in arithmetic sequences?

Add a constant number to one term to find the next term

What is the Th term of the arithmetic sequence given by the explicit rule?

The answer depends on what the explicit rule is!

What is position -to-term rule in maths?

It is the description of a rule which describes how the terms of a sequence are defined in terms of their position in the sequence.

A sequence of numbers that follows a rule is a what?

It is a sequence of numbers. That is all. The sequence could be arithmetic, geometric, harmonic, exponential or be defined by a rule that does not fit into any of these categories. It could even be random.

What is the definition of arithmetic sequence?

An arithmetic sequence is a group or sequence of numbers where, except for the first number, each of the subsequent number is determined by the same rule or set of rules. * * * * * The above answer is incorrect. The rule can only be additive: it cannot be multiplicative or anything else.

Which rule will find the nth term of the arithmetic sequence -58 -65 -72 -86?

It appears that a number of -79 is missing in the sequence and so if you meant -58 -65 -72 -79 -86 then the nth term is -7n-51 which makes 6th term in the sequence -93

What are mathamatical patterns?

Mathematical patterns are lists number that follows a certain rule and have different types. Some of these are: Arithmetic sequence, Fibonacci sequence and Geometric sequence.

What does number sequence mean?

Number sequences are sets of numbers that follow a pattern or a rule. If the rule is to add or subtract a number each time, it is called an arithmetic sequence. In mathematics, a sequence is an enumerated collection of objects in which repetitions are allowed and order matters. Like a set, it contains members (also called elements, or terms).

What are the first fourth and tenth terms of the arithmetic sequence described by the given rule A(n) 12 plus (n-1) (3)?

A(1) = 12A(4) = 3 A(10) = -15.

What is the rule for this pattern 2 6 8 14?

Without further terms in the sequence, it is impossible to determine what the rule in the sequence is.

What is the difference between an explicit rule and a recursive rule?

An explicit rule defines the terms of a sequence in terms of some independent parameter. A recursive rule defines them in relation to values of the variable at some earlier stage(s) in the sequence.
