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

No. Such a sum can be positive, negative or zero.


Add a number to this to get a sum of zero?

Any negative number.


How can you decide if the sum of two numbers is positive negative or zero without calculating the sum?

The sum of two negative numbers is positive and the sum of two negatives is negative. If you have both positive and negative numbers the sum can be either so look at the absolute value. If the negative number has a greater absolute value, the sum is negative. If the positive number has a greater absolute value the sum is positive. If the absolute values are equal, the sum is zero.

Is the sum of a positive number and negative number always a negative number?

No. In the case of 5 + (-3), for example, the positive number 2 is the solution. The sum would only be negative if the absolute value of the negative number is greater than the positive number.


The sum of zero and a negative integer is always sometimes or never zero?

The sum of zero and a negative integer can never be zero - it will always be negative and nonzero. Although zero is also an integer, it is neither negative nor positive and cannot be the other integer used.


What is the sum of all single numbers?

zero, because for every positive number, there exists a negative.


When a positive and a negative number are added sometimes the sum is positive sometimes it's zero and sometimes it's negative explain why it happens?

If you add a positive number and a negative number, and the positive number is larger (in absolute value) than the negative number, then the sum is positive. For example, 7 + (-5) is the same thing as 7 - 5 which equals 2. Adding a negative number is equivalent to subtracting a positive number. If the two numbers are the same (in absolute value) then the sum is zero. You will be subtracting a number from itself. And finally, if the negative number is larger (in absolute value) than the positive number, then the sum is negative. In other words, you have more negative than positive so you end up with negative. It's pretty simple. An example would be, 3 + (-4) which equals 3 - 4 which is -1.


What are two numbers that are equal distance from zero on a number line called?

For two numbers to be equidistant from zero, one must be the negative of the other. As one is the negative of the other, it is the additive inverse of that number. The sum of an number and its additive inverse is zero.


What can you add to a number to get a sum less than zero?

You could add a negative number. ex. 98 + -100 = -2


Why is the sum of a positive integer and a negative integer is always negative?

It isn't always negative. ... for example: -5 + 12 = 7 (a positive number) -5 + 2 = -3 (a negative number) -5 + 5 = 0 (neither negative nor positive) If the negative number has greater magnitude than the positive number, the sum will be negative If the positive number has greater magnitude than the negative number, the sum will be positive If the negative and positive numbers have the same magnitude, the sum will be zero.


How can you decide if the sum of two numbers is positive negative or zero without actually calculating the sum?

The sum of two positive numbers is always positive, and the sum of two negatives is always negative. If you have a positive and a negative number, there sum can be either, so look at the absolute values to decide. For example -3+2=-1. Since all you care about is the sign, look at the absolute value. If the negative number has a greater absolute value, the sum is negative and if the positive number's absolute value, which is the number itself, is bigger, the sum is positive. If the absolute values are equal, the sum is 0.


What is the sum of a number and zero?

If you add zero to any number, the sum is the same number you started with.

Which number when added to a number gives a sum equal to a number?

zero + zero = zero


When adding two integers how can you tell if a sum will be positive negative or zero without actually adding?

if your negative number is higher than your positive number your sum will be negative. if it is 0 i think that's pretty easy to find out yourself. ex: -5-3 = -8
