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 null set a proper subset of any set?

yes, if the set being described is empty, we can talk about proper and improper subsets. there are no proper subsets of the empty set. the only subset of the empty set is the empty set itself. to be a proper subset, the subset must be strictly contained. so the empty set is an improper subset of itself, but it is a proper subset of every other set.


Can any set be a proper subset of itself give an example of why or why not?

No, by definition. A proper subset is a subset that contains some BUT NOT ALL elements of the original set.


Why can a proper subset be a subset of itself?

Because every set is a subset of itself. A proper subset cannot, however, be a proper subset of itself.


What are examples of a proper subset?

The set {1, 3} is a proper subset of {1, 2, 3}.The set {a, b, c, d, e} is a proper subset of the set that contains all the letters in the alphabet.All subsets of a given set are proper subsets, except for the set itself. (Every set is a subset of itself, but not a proper subset.) The empty set is a proper subset of any non-empty set.This sounds like a school question. To answer it, first make up any set you like. Then, as examples of proper subsets, make sets that contain some, but not all, of the members of your original set.


Why is the set of factors of a number not the same as the set of proper factors?

The set of proper factors doesn't include 1 and the number itself.


Why is the set of factors of a number not the as the set of proper factors?

Proper factors don't include one and the number itself.


What is the meaning of properset?

I believe the term "proper set" is not use in math. A "proper subset" is a subset of a given set, that is not equal to the set itself.


Why is a set of factors of a number not the same as a set of proper factors of what number?

Proper factors don't include one and the number itself.


Is empty set a proper subset of any set?

NO


Does every set have a proper subset?

No. The null set cannot have a proper subset. For any other set, the null set will be a proper subset. There will also be other proper subsets.


Why is the set of factors of a number not the same as the set of proper factors of the number?

The set of factors includes one and the number itself. Proper factors do not include those two.


Is a nullset a proper subsets?

The null set is a proper subset of any non-empty set.
