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

When you must reverse the inequality sign?

When solving an inequality, you must revers the inequality sign when you multiply (or divide) both sides by a negative number.

What is a solution to the inequality x281?

"x281" is an expression, not an inequality. An inequality is supposed to have an inequality sign, such as "<" or ">".


How do you know when to reverse the direction of an inequality symbol?

u only reverse the sign when u multiply or divide by a NEGATIVE number...otherwise u don't change the direction


When is the only time you flip an inequality sign?

When you divide both sides of an inequality by a negative number, the inequality sign flips.


How do you solve an inequality when using the distributive property?

You solve an inequality in the same way as you would solve an equality (equation). The only difference is that if you multiply or divide both sides of an inequality by a negative number, you must reverse the inequality sign. Thus, if you have -3x < 9 to find x, you need to divide by -3. That is a negative number so -3x/(-3) > 9/(-3) reverse inequality x > -3

Do you flip the inequality sign if the only the variable is negative?

No, you only flip the inequality sign if you are dividing by a negative number on both sides of the inequality

If you replace the equal sign of an equation an put an inequality sign in its place is there ever a time when the same value will be a solution to both the equation and inequality?

Yes, when the inequality has a less that or equal to sign, or a greater than sign or equal to sign, then the equal sign can be replaced and get a solution that is common to both the equation and the inequality. There can also be other solutions to the inequality, where as the solution for the equation will be a valid one.

How do you know weather to shade above or below the line when graphing an inequality on the coordinate plane?

If the inequality has a > or ≥ sign, you shade above the line. If the inequality has a < or ≤ sign, you shade below it. Obviously, just an = is an equation, not an inequality.


What are the critical features of an inequality?

An inequality must have a greater than sign (>) OR a less than sign (<) OR a greater than or equal to sign (≥) OR a less than or equal to sign (≤).


What do you need to do to the inequality sign if you multiply or divide both sides of an inequality by a negative number?

Leave it alone. You cannot make an inequality into an equality by multiplying both sides of the inequation by the same number. If instead of the inequality sign you are using a lesser or greater than sign, however, you will need to reverse it if you multiply both sides by the same negative number, e.g. 10>4. If you multiply both sides by -2, you need to change the > into a <, so -20<-8


Is a number an expression equation or inequality?

A number is an expression. It is not an equation, or an inequality, since it doesn't have an equal sign, or an inequality (greater than, less than, etc.) sign.


What is an inequality sign?
