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 the degrees of freedom when using the t distribution to estimate or test the mean of a sample from a single population?

If the sample consisted of n observations, then the degrees of freedom is (n-1).


Why is it impossible to compute a T statistic for a sample that has only one score?

A T test is used to find the probability of a scenario given a specific average and the number of degrees of freedom. You are free to use as few degrees of freedom as you wish, but you must have at least 1 degree of freedom. The formula to find the degrees of freedom is "n-1" or the population sample size minus 1. The minus 1 is because of the fact that the first n is not a degree of freedom because it is not an independent data source from the original, as it is the original. Degrees of freedom are another way of saying, "Additional data sources after the first". A T test requires there be at least 1 degree of freedom, so there is no variability to test for.


How do you use the F Test to find the sample size for two sets of data?

The data sets determine the degrees of freedom for the F-test, nit the other way around!

In a two-way contingency table with four rows and four columns the appropriate degrees of freedom for the chi-square test statistic is?

The degrees of freedom for any contingency table can be calculated simply by the formula (r-1)x(c-1) where r= the number of rows and c= the number of columns. Thus for a contingency table with four rows and four columns the degrees of freedom are 3x3 = 9.


Why do you use the t test for the independent sample?

Because under the null hypothesis of no difference, the appropriate test statistic can be shown to have a t-distribution with the relevant degrees of freedom. So you use the t-test to see how well the observed test statistic fits in with a t-distribution.


Are the main islands of japan north or south of the 30 degrees north?

North you can find this out if you look on a world map and find the 30 degrees north line then see if Japan is north or south of it .That's how you could figure it out if you have it on a test.
