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

Find all pairs of consecutive prime numbers?

The only two consecutive numbers that are both prime are 2 and 3. Since there are no other even prime numbers (other than 2), there are no more pairs of consecutive prime numbers. Therefore, the term "twin primes" usually refers to pairs of prime numbers that are 2 numbers apart. Examples are (3, 5), (5, 7), (11, 13), (101, 103), and many others more. It is not currently know whether there are infinitely many twin primes.

What is the Product of two consecutive prime numbers?

There is only one pair of consecutive prime numbers, and the prime numbers are two and three, because any pair of consecutive numbers has one odd and one even number, and two is the only even prime number, because all other even numbers can be divided by two, and the only pairs of consecutive numbers are one and two and three, but one is not prime because it only has one factor, thus making the only consecutive pair of primes two and three. But the problem asks for the product of the two numbers, not the numbers themselves, so just multiply two and three together to get a final result of six.

Could you ever get three consecutive numbers which were all prime explain?

Yes 1 2 and 3 are consecutive and prime

Are there any pairs of prime numbers that when multiplied do not make their least common multiple?

The product of all pairs of prime numbers is always the least common multiple of the two prime numbers.

What numbers from 1 to 100 are consecutive pair of numbers?

All of the numbers in that range are consecutive. If you're asking about prime numbers, it's just 2 and 3.

How many pairs of prime numbers are there which are consecutive odd integers?

There are an infinite number of prime numbers which are consecutive odd integers. Choose any natural number n. Take all primes up to any number n, take their product, and add 1 and subtract 1 from it. These 2 numbers are consecutive odd integers. eg 2*3*5*7 = 210 209 and 211 are primes which are consecutive odd integers.

Why are 2 and 3 the only consecutive prime numbers?

And they are the ONLY consecutive prime numbers because if you have one prime number (i.e. 29), then there always is an even number right after the prime number (i.e. 30 comes right after 29), and consecutive means "right next to," right? And we all know that even numbers can always be divided in half, so 2 and 3 are the only consecutive prime numbers.

What three things have the numbers 3 5 and 7 in common?

They are all prime numbers. They are all consecutive odd numbers They are all factors of 105

Why are two and three the only consecutive prime numbers?

The number 2 is the only even prime number - all other even numbers are divisible by 2.
