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

What is the probability that the die tossed will land on a number that is smaller than 5?

The probability that the die tossed will land on a number that is smaller than 5 is 4/6 or 2/3. Smaller than 5 is 1 - 4 and 6 is the sample space.


A fair coin is tossed 5 times What is the probability of exactly 1 head?

First, you find the probability of picking 1 in 5 disregarding order (combination). 5 C 1 = 5/1 = 5 Then you divide that by the possible number of outcomes which is 25. 5/ 2^5= .0195


What is the probability that a tossed coin will come up tails twice in a row?

Each one is 50% Together it's 25% (.5 x .5 = .25)


What is the probability of getting exactly 3 heads if a fair coin is tossed 8 times?

The probability to get heads once is 1/2 as the coin is fair The probability to get heads twice is 1/2x1/2 The probability to get heads three times is 1/2x1/2x1/2 The probability to get tails once is 1/2 The probability to get tails 5 times is (1/2)5 So the probability to get 3 heads when the coin is tossed 8 times is (1/2)3(1/2)5=(1/2)8 = 1/256 If you read carefully you'll understand that 3 heads and 5 tails has the same probability than any other outcome = 1/256 As the coin is fair, each side has the same probability to appear So the probability to get 3 heads and 5 tails is the same as getting for instance 8 heads or 8 tails or 1 tails and 7 heads, and so on


A coin is tossed 5 times find the probability that the 6th toss is a tail given tht the first 5 tosses were all tails?

The chance is 50%-50% that it will be heads or tails; this does not change regardless of the number of previous tosses and their results.

If a coin is tossed 5 times what is the probability of getting 5 heads?

If a fair coin is tossed 5 times, the probability of getting 5 heads is:P(H,H,H,H,H) = (1/2)5 = 1/32 = 0.03125 = 3.125% ≈ 3.1%


A coin is tossed five times find the probability of getting exactly three heads?

Since a coin has two sides and it was tossed 5 times, there are 32 possible combinations of results. The probability of getting heads three times in 5 tries is 10/32. This is 5/16.

Two coins are tossed What is the probability of both coins are heads?

The probability that both coins are heads is the probability of one coin landing heads multiplied by the probability of the second coin landing heads: (.5) * (.5) = .25 or (1/2) * (1/2) = 1/4
