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

Is multiplication before division in order of operations?

"Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication and Division, and Addition and Subtraction." Therefore multiplication and division are equal.


What operations are used to find equal ratios?

Multiplication and division.


What is the identity property of Division?

The identity property of division simply states that any number divided by one is equal to the original number. Mathematically: x/1 = x

In division problem the number being divided is called?

The number being divided is the dividend, which is being divided by the divisor to equal the quotient. (dividend) ÷ (divisor) = (quotient)


How do you check the quotient from a divisor problem?

you use multiply the divisor times the quotient & it should equal the dividend.

Why is two hundred ninety six divided by six equal forty eight reminder eight incorrect?

Because the remainder from a division must be smaller than the divisor. The remainder, 8, is not smaller than the divisor, 6.


Can the remainder ever equal the divisor?

No.

Does it matter in a division problem that the remainder is more than the divisor?

Yes, it matters. Division is usually defined in such a way that the remainder must be less than the divisor. Let's look at a simple example. You want to divide 5 apples between 2 people. You might say that the answer is 1, with a remainder of 3; but that means that there are still apples to share (without cutting them into fractional parts). The answer 2, with a remainder of 1, more accurately reflects the fact that you can each person, in this example, can have two whole apples. In general, if the remainder is greater than (or equal to) the divisor, it's an indication that the division was not done correctly.


Can the quotient and the divisor ever be equal?

if the dividend is a perfect square and the divisor is its square root


What is the question for a division problem?

Be more specific. It actually depends what your division problem is. Example: the question for 16 and 4 would be, "What does 16 divided by 4 equal?" Answer your question?


Why can't the remainder be equal to the divisor?

It might help to think of a division (with remainder) as "evenly distributing" some items - for example, give the same number of apples to each person. The "remainder" is whatever is LESS than the number of people (the divisor), so you can't continue distributing one more apple FOR EACH PERSON. If the remaining apples is greater than the number of people, or equal to them, you can distribute one more for each.


What if your remainder is bigger than your answer?

Then divide the remainder again by the divisor until you get a remainder smaller than your divisor or an remainder equal to zero. The remainder in a division question should never be larger than the "divisor", but the remainder often is larger than the "answer" (quotient). For example, if 435 is divided by 63, the quotient is 22 and the remainder is 57.
