There are an infinite number of fractions less than (1/2). Just to start with, there is (1/X) where X is any number larger than 2, such as (1/3), (1/4), (1/5),...(1/1320), (1/1321), etc.

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, improper fractions (ex: 3/2) are greater than one.

What fractions are less than half?

There are an infinite number of fractions with a value less than 1/2. Some examples are 1/3 1/4 1/5 2/5 1/6 1/7 2/7 3/7 3/8 11212/22425 1/10000090067856 and countless more. Any positive fraction, where the denominator is more than twice the numerator, and all negative fractions as well.

No particular name would encompass 1/2, -1/2, -5/2 all of which are fractions with a less than 1.

Why is the recipical of A fraction less than one is always a fraction greater than one?

Fractions that are less than one are known as proper fractions. Their denominators are greater than their numerators. Their reciprocals would have numerators greater than their denominators, making them improper. Improper fractions are greater than one.

Would it be impossible to write all fractions equivalent to a half and why?

No. There are infinitely many equivalent fractions for any given fraction.

How do you know that a fraction is closest to one half?

In order to compare two fractions, you have to convert them so that they have the same denominator, which is to say, they are the same kind of fraction, whether that is thirds, quarters, fifths, etc. Let's say that I want to compare 2/9 with 1/5. I can make them both into 45ths. Multiply the 2/9 by 5/5 and you get 10/45. Multiply the 1/5 by 9/9 and you get 9/45. Now you can compare, because 10/45 is obvious 1/45 larger than 9/45. In the example given, since both fractions are less than a half, the larger one is closer to a half. If I had two fractions that were both larger than a half, then the smaller one is closer to a half. What if I have a fraction that is larger than a half and another fraction that is smaller than a half, and I want to know which is closer to a half? I would have to convert all 3 fractions (half is also a fraction) so that they have common denominators, then I can easily subtract a candidate fraction from a half, or subtract a half from it, and see which gives the biggest difference.

Why is the product of two proper fractions less than either of the fractions?

A proper fraction is less than 1. Whenever you multiply something by a number < 1, the result (product) is less than the original number. So when you multiply a proper fraction by a number less one (such as another proper fraction, the product is less than the original proper fraction. The only time a product involving a given number is larger than the given number is when you multiply the given number by a number that is > 1. Since all proper fractions are < 1, products involving them are always less than the original given number.
