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

Two prime numbers greater than 2 have 2 as a common factor?

No prime number greater than 2 has 2 as a factor. A prime number has only two factors, 1 and the number itself. All prime numbers have 1 as a common factor. Numbers with any number besides 1 as common factors are composite numbers.


How do you get composite numbers by using prime factor?

A composite is any number that has a prime factor smaller than itself and greater than 1.


What is the greatest common factor of 29 and 81?

The greatest common factor of a prime number & a composite number is 1 if the composite number is not divisible by the prime number. 81(composite number) is not divisible by 29(prime number) so, gcf(29,81) = 1.

Not necessarily.


Why is every number greater than 1 is either prime or composite?

That is how they are defined. Any number greater than 1 is composite if it has a factor other than 1 and itself. If it is not a composite number then it is a prime number. It mustbe one or the other and the result follows.


What is the greatest common factor of 37 and 50?

The greatest common factor of a prime and a composite number is 1 if the composite number is not divisible by the prime number. 37 is a prime number and 50 is a composite number. Also, 50 is not divisible by 37 therefore GCF = 1.


Can the greatest common factor be greater than 18?

The Greatest Common Factor depends upon the numbers for which there are common factors and it is the greatest one of them; it can be greater than 18, for example the greatest common factor of 40 and 100 is 20. The greatest common factor must be one of the factors of each of the numbers. As the factors of each number cannot be greater than that number, the greatest common factor of a set of numbers cannot be greater than the least number. If this number is not greater than 18 then the greatest common factor of the numbers cannot be greater than 18. Even if the least number is greater than 18 it is possible that the greatest common factor of a set of numbers is still not greater than 18, for example the greatest common factor of 20, 30 and 50 is 10.


Can the greatest common factor of 18 and 36 be greater then 18explain?

No. No number can have a factor greater than itself.
