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 repeating decimals happen?

A repeating decimal is any rational number whose decimal representation does not terminate after a given number of digits. As only a very small quantity of the rational numbers terminate in their decimal representation, practically any rational number picked at random will be a repeating decimal.

Is 9 divisible by 90?

9 can be divisible by 90, though it would be an incredibly small decimal. If you're asking if 9 can be divided by 90 and get a whole number, then no, it cannot. If you accidentally wrote 90, but meant only 9, then yes, 9 can be divided by 9, and get 1

Integration. The volume is divided into small pieces; the volume of each piece is added.

Is a number divided by zero irrational?

That is not what mathematicians mean by an irrational number, which is a number with an infinitely long decimal expansion. You will note that since division is the inverse of multiplication, dividing by small numbers has the same effect as multiplying by large numbers, and so dividing by zero, which is an infinitely small number, is equivalent to multiplying by infinity. The result in most cases is deemed to have no mathematical meaning.

7 is a prime number and is also too small to have any numbers evenly divided into it.

How the use of scientific notation?

Scientific notation is used to express very large or very small numbers. instead of writing 15,000,000, you can express the same number by writing it as 1.5 * 107 or, you could express the very small number .00000015 as 1.5 * 10-7 to express a number in scientific notation, simply place a decimal point after the first number (in a large number) or before the last number (in a very small number) and multiply by ten to the nth power, where n is the number of digits following the decimal point (in a large number) or negate the number of digits before the decimal (in a very small number).

What would happen if you removed the decimal point from a number?

If you remove the decimal it will become a whole number and a wholly different number.For example the number 34.88 (thirty-four and eighty-eight hundredths) which is a fairly small number, even for a decimal. If you remove the decimal from 34.88, the number will become 3,488 (three thousand,four hundered eighty-eight) which is a whole number and wholly different from 34.88.

Any number divided by infinity?

Infinity is more a concept than a number. But the answer would be a number that is so infinitesimally small as to basically equal zero.

What is the purpose of adding zeros to the dividend when dividing?

As you divide and increase the number of decimal places, each zero is a holder of the decimal place. It must be used to take the level of accuracy of the answer to a decimal fraction that is 10 times as small as the previous decimal fraction.

How do you divide a small number by a larger number and they both have decimals?

Count the number of digits after the large number and move the decimal to the right that many times Move the decimal of the smaller to the right the same number of times as you did the large number Use long division to get answer Example 1.77/ 3.1 = 17.7/31 = 0.571

What is 0.0068 percent?

What is the decimal for 2 and 1 third?

Rounded to the nearest hundredth, it is 2.33. However, it is an irrational number with an infinite number of threes behind the decimal point (2.33333...) so it technically is 2.3 with a small horizontal line over the 3.

How do you write 6868000000.018 in nearest decimal?

To the nearest decimal it must be 6868000000.018 since this is exactly equal to the specified number and any other representation would be different - no matter how small the difference.

How do you divide a small number by a big number by hand. For example 15 divided by 22?

First lets start with something basic: 3 divided by 4. Well first you put a zero (because you can't divide it and get a whole number) then a decimal point. After that multiply 3 by 10 and get 30 then do 30 divided by 4 which is 7r2. Then you put the 7 on the deimal point and multiply 2 by 10 which is 20 then do 20 didided by 4 which is 5 then the answer is 0.75. For example: 3/4=0.75 Working out: Put a 0. then 3*10 (because 4 is bigger than 3) then 30/4=7r2 then put the whole number which is seven on the decimal point then it becomes 0.7 then because you still have the 2 multiply it by 10 which is 20. Then do 20/4 which is 5 then because 5 is the whole number put it on the decimal point then it's 0.75.
