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

What is the order from largest to smallest for whole number integers rational numbers natural number irrational numbers and real numbers?

Such numbers cannot be ordered in the manner suggested by the question because: For every whole number there are integers, rational numbers, natural numbers, irrational numbers and real numbers that are bigger. For every integer there are whole numbers, rational numbers, natural numbers, irrational numbers and real numbers that are bigger. For every rational number there are whole numbers, integers, natural numbers, irrational numbers and real numbers that are bigger. For every natural number there are whole numbers, integers, rational numbers, irrational numbers and real numbers that are bigger. For every irrational number there are whole numbers, integers, rational numbers, natural numbers and real numbers that are bigger. For every real number there are whole numbers, integers, rational numbers, natural numbers and irrational numbers that are bigger. Each of these kinds of numbers form an infinite sets but the size of the sets is not the same. Georg Cantor showed that the cardinality of whole numbers, integers, rational numbers and natural number is the same order of infinity: aleph-null. The cardinality of irrational numbers and real number is a bigger order of infinity: aleph-one.

What is the history of irrational numbers?

There are uncountably infinite irrational numbers and their existence has been known for over 2500 years. In some cases, although their irrationality was suspected, rigorous mathematical proof took longer. Some notable events:sqrt(2): Pythagoreans (6th Century BCE).pi: Johann Heinrich Lambert (18th Century).e: Leonhard Euler (18th Century).In the late 19th Century, Georg Cantor proved that the number of irrationals is an order of infinity greater than the number of rationals.

What did georg cantor contribute to math?

· Cantor was the first mathematician to put a firm logical foundation for the term "infinity," and described a way to do arithmetic with infinite quantities useful to mathematics. He stated that a collection is infinite, if some of its parts are as big as the whole. Cantor also was able to demonstrate that there are different sizes of infinity. · Cantor revolutionized the foundation of mathematics with set theory. o One to One Correspondence: He showed that you could make a one-to-one correspondence between the natural numbers § (1, 2, 3, 4, ... } and the integers (..., -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3 ...} o Continuum Hypothesis: The cardinality of the set of all subsets of any set is strictly greater than the cardinality of the set o For any set A, cardinality(powerset(A))>carinality(A) · Transfinite numbers o Used to count the number of integers and the number of real numbers

What numbers come after Infinity?

This may sound like a tautological answer. But ∞+1 comes after ∞. And ∞+2 comes after that. As long as what you define is mathematically consistent and makes logical sense, you are allowed to make up whatever number system and rules you want. Georg Cantor defined the ordinal numbers and transfinite arithmetic by making the + operator non-commutative. So 99+∞=∞ but ∞<∞+1.
