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

Why is a decimal rational?

Some decimals are rational, and some aren't. A decimal is rational when it terminates or repeats.

Is the number 0.333.... repeats forever therefore it is irrational?

No because any number that can be expressed as a fraction is a rational number and in this case the fraction is 1/3When trying to represent an irrational number as a decimal there are two conditions:the part of after the decimal never terminates (which is met by the described number)the decimal part never repeats (which is NOT met by the described number)

How do you know whether a fraction terminates or repeats in decimal form?

If it repeats, there should be a little line over the last digit(s) that repeat. If it terminates, then the numbers will not repeat.

Why is a rational number a terminating or reapeting decimal?

A rational number terminates or repeats because in both cases they can be represented as a fraction (in a/b form.) When a number keeps going with no period (no part of the number repeats) it cannot be written in a/b form.

Is 5.7777 A rational number?

Yes. If you mean 5.7777 as a terminating decimal it is 57777/10000 If you mean 5.7777... as a recurring decimal where the 7 repeats forever it is 57/9 If a decimal number terminates or repeats one or more digits forever it is a rational number. Otherwise if a decimal number goes on forever but does not repeat any digits (eg √2 = 1.41421356...) then it is an irrational number.

Is 1 an irrational number?

No. An irrational number is a number that neither terminates nor repeats. Since 1 terminates, it is called a rationalnumber.No. An irrational number is a number that is not rational. Rational numbers are those who can be defined as the division of two integer numbers. As 1 is 1/1, it is a rational number, so, it's not irrational.

Is 1.732050808 rational or irrational?

The number has a decimal representation that terminates (after 9 digits). If it terminates, the number is rational.

If The number pi goes on forever with no repeating pattern therefore it is irrational?

Yes - it meets the conditions for a an irrational number:It is a Real numberWhen written as a decimal it never terminatesWhen written as a decimal it never repeatsThe exact definition of an irrational number is bit more precise, but this should be good enough for most purposes.

All deciamls irrational numbers?

Not necessarily. If the decimal terminates, or if it repeats periodically, then it is rational.
