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 determine the exponent when rewriting an expression of repeated multiplication in exponential form?

The exponent for a factor is the number of times that the factor appras in the multiplication. An exponent of 1 is not usually written out. So, 2*2*2*3*3*3*3*5 = 23*34*5

How do you determine the exponent when rewriting an expressionof reapeted multiplication in exponential form?

However many variables there are is the exponent. 2x2x2x2x2x2x2 = 2^7 3x3x3 = 2^3 etc.

Can you find the difference between an exponent and its base in an exponential expression?

You can but it has no particular significance.

How do you know if an equation is exponential?

Basically, in an exponential expression (or equation) you have the independent variable in the exponent. For example: 5 times 10x The general form of an exponential function can be written as: abx or: aekx where a, b, and k are constants, and e is approximately 2.718. Note that just having a power doesn't mean you have an exponential equation. For example, in x3 the variable does NOT appear in the exponent, so it is not an exponential expression.

What is a exponential expression?

An exponential expression is a problem with no answer usually used to answer a question such as, Find the Value ; 2 as a base and 5 as an exponent.; The answer would be 32 because to find the value of an exponent you multiply the number in the base by itself as many times that it says in the exponent.Ex: 2*2*2*2*2=32

Decide whether the following equation is exponential. Support your answer -3x 4y plus 7 and sup2.?

While this is not the complete definition, an exponential expression has the variable (for example, "x") in the exponent.

When a base of an exponential expression is apositive real number and exponent is an integer?

Then, if the exponent is a positive integer, the value is 1 multiplied by the base repeatedly, exponent times. If the exponent is a negative integer then it is the reciprocal of the above value.In either case, it is NOT the base multiplied by itself an exponent number of times.

How do you write xxy in exponential form?

xx = x2 In exponential form the expression becomes x2y. Technically, it would be correct to write x2y1 but, an exponent of 1 is simply omitted in ordinary mathematics.
