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

Minus pi. Or minus pi plus any rational number. Here is how you can figure this out (call your unknown number "x", and let "r" stand for any rational number):x + pi = r To solve for "x", simply subtract pi from both sides. That gives you: x = r - pi

Is 7 pie a rational number why or why not?

Assuming that you mean pi, and not pie, it is not a rational number.The set of rational numbers is a field and this means that for every non-zero rational number, there exists a multiplicative inverse in the setand also, due to closure, the product of any two rational numbers is a rational number.Now suppose 7*pi were rational.7 is rational and so there is its multiplicative inverse, which is (1/7).(1/7) is also rational so (1/7)*(7*pi) is rationalBut by the associative property, this is (1/7*7)*pi = 1*pi = pi.But it has been proven that pi is irrational. Therefore the supposition must be wrong ie 7*pi is not rational.

Consider pi and 4 - pi. 4 - pi + pi = 4, which is clearly rational. However, both pi and 4 - pi are irrational, as you can verify. plz to be lerning numburs Then consider pi + pi = 2pi, which is clearly irrational. The sum of two irrational numbers, therefore, may or may not be rational.
