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

What does the name Claire mean ...C- L- A- I- R- E?

Clear, it's Latin.

Formula for area of a sphere?

There is NO equation for the area of a sphere Assuming you mean surface area, the surface area of a sphere of radius r is 4πr^2.

Why is it said that poisson distribution is a limiting case of binomial distribution?

This browser is totally bloody useless for mathematical display but...The probability function of the binomial distribution is P(X = r) = (nCr)*p^r*(1-p)^(n-r) where nCr =n!/[r!(n-r)!]Let n -> infinity while np = L, a constant, so that p = L/nthenP(X = r) = lim as n -> infinity of n*(n-1)*...*(n-k+1)/r! * (L/n)^r * (1 - L/n)^(n-r)= lim as n -> infinity of {n^r - O[(n)^(k-1)]}/r! * (L^r/n^r) * (1 - L/n)^(n-r)= lim as n -> infinity of 1/r! * (L^r) * (1 - L/n)^(n-r) (cancelling out n^r and removing O(n)^(r-1) as being insignificantly smaller than the denominator, n^r)= lim as n -> infinity of (L^r) / r! * (1 - L/n)^(n-r)Now lim n -> infinity of (1 - L/n)^n = e^(-L)and lim n -> infinity of (1 - L/n)^r = lim (1 - 0)^r = 1lim as n -> infinity of (1 - L/n)^(n-r) = e^(-L)So P(X = r) = L^r * e^(-L)/r! which is the probability function of the Poisson distribution with parameter L.

What is 16 subtract r equals negative sixteen?

It's a linear equation in 'r' . Here's how to find the solution:16 - r = -16Add 16 to each side of the equation:32 - r = 0Add 'r' to each side:32 = r

What is th formula to find the area of a hexagon?

if r = perpendicular distance center of hexagon to a side, and r^2 = r squared, then AREA = 6x r^2 x tan 30 degrees = 3.464 r^2 or if R = distance center of hexagon to a corner, AREA = 3 R^2 sin 60 = 2.598 R^2
