How do you find factors of negative numbers?

The same way as finding factors of positive numbers but the answer includes both the positive and negative factors.

The sum of two positive numbers is always positive.

How do you know when the slope of a line is negative?

You know when the slope of a line is negative when m in the slope-intercept form equation y=mx+b is negative. For example, y=-3x+2 has a negative slope since m (which is -3 in this case) is negative. This is the same when finding a positive slope, because if m is positive, then the slope is positive.

What are the positive and negative referred to?

When used with numbers, positive means "more than zero", and negative means "less than zero". Other meanings are:* Positive: something favorable; negative: something unfavorable. * Positive: something is found; negative: nothing was found. Especially used for medical analysis. Note that this meaning is quite contrary to the previous one - since finding a disease can be quite unfavorable for the patient!

What is the difference between finding a factor and finding a multiple?

a factor is what you multiply by a multiple is the answer

How would you explain to a seventh grader the difference between the domains of an odd root radical function and an even root radical function?

To start with, when you multiply an even number of negative numbers, the answer is positive. When you multiply an odd number of negative numbers, the answer is negative. When you multiply any number of positive numbers, the answer is always positive. For positive numbers, the value of a power is always positive. For negative numbers, the value of an odd power is negative, and the value of an even power is positive. Finding roots is the inverse of taking powers, so that an odd-root function can be evaluated for any value of x. An even-root function, however, cannot be evaluated when the value of x is negative, since an even power can never result in a negative answer. The domain of an odd root function is all real numbers; the domain of an even root function is the non-negative real numbers.

What is the purpose of finding the Prime Factorization of two numbers?

Comparing their prime factorizations is a fast and easy way to determine their greatest common factor and their least common multiple.

What is the easiest way to determine the least common multiple of 7 - 9 and 12?

Prime factor each number then use the prime the most it was used in any one number. 7=7 -9=3x3 12=2x2x3 2x2x3x7=84 We usually ignore the negative when finding the LCM.

What selective mediums separate gram positive bacteria from a mixture of gram positive and gram negative bacteria?

Gram positive selective media like Aztreonam selective agar, phenylethyl alcohol blood agar, esculin-mannitol agar, and Columbia CN blood agar etc. Finding a medium that works for your specific specimen being used will help with separating the gram negative from the gram positive.

Can you show on a number line how subtracting a negative number ends up positive?

-3...-2...-1...0...1...2...3To find the positive number when subtracting from a (-)number is finding the Absolute Value of the sum. Another way is changing the negative number to a positive and reversing the equation.*Such as, 1-(-3)--> +3-1. So than the answer is a positive 4.* Dots represent the actual line

What is the equation used for finding pH?

What is the most rare human blood type?

The most rare human blood type is AB negative. This does not necessarily mean, however, that people with AB negative blood have a hard time finding blood transfusion donors. They can receive blood from individuals with A negative, B negative, AB negative, or O negative blood. In contrast, the most common blood type is O positive.

What is the difference betweed an LCD and LCM?

The process of finding them is the same. The difference is the function of the numbers. With an LCM, you're finding a multiple of whole numbers. With an LCD, you're finding a multiple of whole numbers that happen to be denominators.

Why is the absolute value of a number never negative?

Because when you find the absolute value you're finding the distance a number is from zero without considering its sign (+ or -). You just have to make the number positive.

Do every polynomial function has at least one complex zero?

No. Complex zeros always come in conjugate pairs. So if a+bi is one zero, then a-bi is also a zero.The fundamental theorem of algebra says"Every polynomial equation of degree n with complex coefficients has n roots in the complex numbers."If you want to know how many complex root a given polynomial has, you might consider finding out how many real roots it has. This can be done with Descartes Rules of signsThe maximum number of positive real roots can be found by counting the number of sign changes in f(x). The actual number of positive real roots may be the maximum, or the maximum decreased by a multiple of two.The maximum number of negative real roots can be found by counting the number of sign changes in f(-x). The actual number of negative real roots may be the maximum, or the maximum decreased by a multiple of two.Complex roots always come in pairs. That's why the number of positive or number of negative roots must decrease by two. Using the two rules for positive and negative signs along with the fact that complex roots come in pairs, you can determine the number of complex roots.

What is the purpose of finding the least common multiple?

The process of finding the LCM is the same as that of finding the least common denominator, which is necessary in the adding and subtracting of fractions.

When finding the least common multiple do you ever use zero?


What does finding the least common multiple have to do with finding different fraction chains to add to 1?

In general, the two are not related.
