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

Can tossing a coin can be a description of a simple event?

Yes, it can.

What is the definition of probability in math?

Probability is the likelihood that some particular event will occur. It is expressed as a number between 0 and 1, where 0 means the event will not occur, and 1 means the event will occur. Values in between 0 and 1 indicate the relative likelihood, i.e. "probability", that the event will occur. For instance, the probability of tossing heads on a fair coin toss is 0.5, the probability of rolling a 3 on a standard die is 1 in 6, or about 0.1667, and the probability of drawing an ace of spades from a standard deck of 52 cards is 1 in 52 or about 0.01923.

Can you give me an example of a compound event?

rolling a die,or tossing a coin!

Which is a compound event?

A compound event, in probability theory is an event which is made up of two (or more) simpler events. Thus, tossing two coins in a compound event made up of tossing one coin and tossing another coin. Getting soaked in rain consists of the simple events that it rains (where you are) and you are outdoors without an umbrella (at that time).

What is the sample space of tossing a coin?

The sample space of tossing a coin is H and T.

Probability is the what that something will or will not occur?

Probability is the likelihood that something will occur. If you subtract it from 1, we get the likelihood (or probability) that it will not occur. If a coin is tossed and rolls heads 6 times, the (empirical) probability of obtaining a head is 6/10 or .6. 1-.6 =.4 is the empirical probability (or likelihood) of not getting a head.

Is tossing a coin an experiment?


What is the probability of tossing a coin and getting a head?

The probability of tossing a coin and getting heads is 0.5

What is the sample space of tossing a coin 2 times?

The sample space for tossing a coin twice is [HH, HT, TH, TT].

What is the probability of tossing a coin with heads up?


What is the probability of spinning a number greater than 5 on a spinner numbered 1-8 and tossing on a coin?

3/8. And the coin tossing is totally irrelevant.

Tossing a coin 9 times and getting tails what is the probability of getting tails on the next toss?

Since each event is independent, the probability remains at 0.5.
