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 is the quotient of of two fractions always greater than either fractions?

That is simply not true. For example, consider the quotient of 2/9 and 2/3.(2/9) / (2/3) = (2*3)/(9*2) = 3/9 = 1/3 which, unless I am very much mistaken, is not greater than one of the fractions: namely 2/3.


Are improper fractions always greater than 1?

Yes. That's the definition of an improper fraction. If it's not greater than ' 1 ', then it isn't an improper fraction.

True.


When dividing fractions does the answer always end with an improper fraction?

Not always. There are times when division of fractions results in a non-improper fraction.


Why is the reciprocal of a fraction less than one always a fraction greater than one?

A positive fraction that is less than one is known as a proper fraction. In a proper fraction, the denominator is greater than the numerator. A reciprocal fraction would have a numerator greater than the denominator. Such a fraction is known as an improper fraction. Improper fractions are greater than one.

Why is reciprocal of a fraction less than 1 is always greater than 1?

Proper fractions are less than one.. Their numerators re less than their denominators. Their reciprocals have numerators greater than their denominators, making them improper. Improper fractions are greater than 1.


Why is 5 over 5 an improper fraction?

5/5 is an improper fraction, because it is the same as saying 1. Yes. 5/5 is an improper fraction. Improper fractions are fractions with greater numerator than denominator or with the same numerator and denominator. Thus, improper fractions when changed to decimals are always greater than one or exactly equal to one. 5/5 is exactly equal to one, thus it is an improper fraction.

When you divide two fractions does the quotient always greater than either fraction?

No. 1/5 divided by 1/2 = 2/5 (that's less than 1/2) 1/10 divided by 1/3 = 3/10 (that's less than 1/3)

The product is not always greater than 1.


What it the greatest possible fraction greater than zero?

There is no such fraction. Fractions are infinitely dense and, between any two fractions, there are infinitely many more fractions. It is, therefore, always possible to find a larger proper fraction.For example,9/10 < 99/100 < 999/1000 < 9999/10000 and so on, for ever and ever.There is no greatest fraction.


What fractions is nearest to 2?

There can be no such thing as a nearest fraction since, given any fraction, it is always possible to find a fraction that is nearer.


When you divide a whole number by a fraction less than 1 is the quotient greater than the whole number?

The quotient is always greater than the whole number. Why? Because it takes more to add up a smaller number than a bigger number. I hope this makes sense.. I'm really stupid XD

Is the quotient of two numbers always a whole number?

No. A quotient is the result of a division. You can divide any real number by any other real number except zero. Most quotients are not whole numbers.Not always because the quotient could be a decimal or a fraction.


What are tha different kinds of fraction?

there are 3 types of fractions proper,improper,mixed proper fractions:-numerator is less than denominator like-2/3,5/7,6/9 improper fractions:- numerator is greater than denominator like-3/2,5/4,9/7 mixed fractions:-always improper fractions are converted to mixed fractions,mixed fractions are combination of proper fractions and whole numbers like-2.2/7,5.3/7


Why is the quotient of two fractions less than 1 always greater than either fraction?

There can be no answer because it is not necessarily true. Suppose f1 and f2 are two fractions.Suppose f1 = 1/2, which is less than 1;suppose f2 = -1/4, which is also less than 1.Then f1/f2 = -2 which is, in fact, smaller than either fraction. Go figure!
