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

If the coefficient of the expression ax is in fraction and the exponent is positive the expression will be a polynomial?

Not necessarily. If the exponent is not an integer then it is not a polynomial.

What is an exponent and a coefficient?

An exponent is a quantity representing the power to which a given number or expression is to be raised, usually expressed as a raised symbol beside the number or expression. A coefficient is a numerical or constant quantity placed before and multiplying the variable in an algebraic expression. In the expression 4x^2 (four x squared) the four is the coefficient and the 2 is the exponent.


If the coefficient of the expression axn is a fraction and the exponent is positive will the expression be a polynomial?

Not necessarily. Every exponent in the exponent must be a non-negative integer. This is not what you have specified. For example, if n = 3.5, it is not a term in a polynomial expression.

How do you do derivatives?

Take the exponent and multiply it by the coefficient (or 1 if there is no coefficient) then subract 1 from the exponent. For example, the derivative of 2x^3 is 6x^2 If there is no exponent, for example, 2x the derivative is 2 because the exponent is actually 1 which produces the same coefficient and the exponent 0 meaning there is no x.
