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

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.

How can you tell whether the sum of 71 and 43 is a positive or negative without actually finding the sum?

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!

Can you find an answer to a question you do not know?

The answer to any question must be positive or negative. Therefore one has a 50-50 chance of finding the correct answer to a question one does not know. By presenting a positive or negative answer at random to the unknown question, one has an edge over finding the unknown question. By using the given answer as a guide the question, in question, will arrive momentarily consequential to some thought regarding the answer that has no question, Simple!!

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.

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.
