Irrational Numbers are infinitely dense. Between any two numbers, there are infinitely many irrational numbers. So if it was claimed that some irrational, x, was the closest irrational to 6, it is possible to find an infinite number of irrationals between 6 and x. Each one of these infinite number of irrationals would be closer to 6 than x. So the search for the nearest irrational must fail.

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

Can you add two irrational numbers to get a rational number?

Yes Yes, the sum of two irrational numbers can be rational. A simple example is adding sqrt{2} and -sqrt{2}, both of which are irrational and sum to give the rational number 0. In fact, any rational number can be written as the sum of two irrational numbers in an infinite number of ways. Another example would be the sum of the following irrational quantities [2 + sqrt(2)] and [2 - sqrt(2)]. Both quantities are positive and irrational and yield a rational sum. (Four in this case.) The statement that there are an infinite number of ways of writing any rational number as the sum of two irrational numbers is true. The reason is as follows: If two numbers sum to a rational number then either both numbers are rational or both numbers are irrational. (The proof of this by contradiction is trivial.) Thus, given a rational number, r, then for ANY irrational number, i, the irrational pair (i, r-i) sum to r. So, the statement can actually be strengthened to say that there are an infinite number of ways of writing a rational number as the sum of two irrational numbers.

When is a set of negative irrational numbers closed?

It cannot be closed under the four basic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) because it is indeed possible to come up with two negative irrational numbers such that their sum/difference/product/quotient is a rational number, indicating that the set is not closed. You will have to think of a different operation.
