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

How do you change from a smaller unit to a larger unit?

There are two ways that are essentially the same and can be used freely - as long as the two units are of the same dimension (length, mass, time, etc.) of course.First way: MultiplicationYou multiply with the relation between the largerunit and the smaller unit, i.e. with how many of the larger unit that goes per one of the smallerunit.ExamplesIf the smaller unit is m (meter) and the larger is km (kilometer), you multiply by 1/1000 km/m.If the smaller unit is inches (in) and the larger is feet (ft), you multiply by 1/12 ft/in.If the smaller unit is µg (micrograms) and the larger is kg (kilograms), you multiply by 1/1,000,000,000 kg/µg.Second way: DivisionYou divide by the relation between the smallerunit and the larger unit, i.e. with how many of the smaller unit goes per one of the larger unit.ExamplesIf the smaller unit is m (meter) and the larger is km (kilometer), you divide by 1000 m/km to go from meters to kilometers.If the smaller unit is inches (in) and the larger is feet (ft), you divide by 12 in/ft to go from inches to feet.If the smaller unit is µg (micrograms) and the larger is kg (kilograms), you divide by 1,000,000,000µg/kg.

When you are converting a larger unit of measurement to a smaller unit of measurement-do you multiply or divide?

Of course you multiply. As an example, the larger unit could be kilometer (that equal 1000 meter-the smaller unit); then 2 km (larger unit) = 2 x 1000 = 2000 meters (smaller unit)
