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

Is 1 composite or prime?

1 is neither a composite nor a prime number. A prime number is one with exactly two positive divisors, itself and one. One has only one positive divisor. It cannot be written as a product of two factors neither of which is itself, so one is also not composite.A prime number is defined as being a natural number that is evenly divisible by exactly two distinct natural numbers. In the case of the number one, 1 is the only natural number that it can be evenly divided by. Thus, 1 has only one distinct divisor, not the required two necessary to make it a prime number. A numbers having this property is called a "unit".Even though it isn't a prime number, one has certain properties that make it even more special. For example, it's the building block for the other numbers:2 = 1 + 1,3 = 2 + 1,4 = 3 + 1.Also, it's what's called the identity element under multiplication; which means that when you multiply any number by one, you get that same number back. Specifically, 1 • X = X • 1 = X , where X is any number.It's neither.

Is the number 1 a prime or composite?

The concept of prime or composite is defined only for integers greater than 1.An alternative argument that is that a 1 has only 1 factor, which is 1. Primes have exactly 2, and composites more than 2. So 1 is neither prime nor composite.This ensures that the unique prime factorisation theorem (the fundamental theorem of arithmetic) is true.

What is the smallest 1-digit composite number?

Referring to only positive integers, the smallest composite number is 4 (2 x 2). A composite number is any number that is the product of two or more prime numbers.*Referring to all integers, it would be the negative number -9, (3 x -3), which is the also the arithmetically lowest one-digit number. However, under normal definitions, negative numbers are not considered prime or composite numbers.

A number that is not prime or composite?

A number that isn't prime or composite is 1 its only factor is 1 (1 x 1).For a number to be prime, it should have two factors: 1 and itself.For a number to be composite, it should have more than two factors.1 has under two factors, which therefore makes it a "special number".
