Well, there are two possible answers to this. Using the info you gave, you can set up two equations, using "x" and "y" to represent your integers:

x - y = 7 (i.e., the two integers are 7 apart) and

1/2y + 1 = x

Substituting for x in the first equation and solving for y gives you the pair x = -5 and

y = -12.

However, if you use 1/2x + 1 = y for your second equation, you get x = 16 and y = 9.

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

One-half is rational because it can be expressed as a quotient of two integers (one divided by two).

Are all numbers even numbers?

Nope - only half of the integers are. The other half (of the integers) are odd. Then there are all of the other numbers - fractions, irrational, complex.

Find smallest positive divisor of an integers other then 1?

There is no such number. If you restrict yourself to integers, there are numbers - such as primes, that are not divisible by an integer other than one. And if you do not restrict yourself to intgers, then there is no smallest number sincce given any number, half that number will be smaller and will be a divisor.

Rational that is not an integer?

The are an infinite number of rational numbers that are not integers, because a rational number is a number that is written as a ratio of two integers. For examble, 1/2 (i.e. a half) is a non-integer rational number. This form is generally called a fraction.

Find 3 consecutive odd integers such that the sum of the 1 and 3 equals the sum of the second and 41?

x, x + 2 and x + 4. x + x + 4 = x + 2 + 41 x = 39 integers are 39, 41 & 43 More simply, middle integer is always half the sum of the other two. We are told that there is a difference of 41, which must be the other half so the middle integer must be 41.

Is one half a integer?

No, one half which is 1/2 is not a integer. Its a rational number.
