A 5 Micron is more fine then a 20 Micron,

It means, if a particle has a thickness of 1 micron. only 5 numbers of particle can be passed through a 5 Micron filter at a time while 20 numbers of Particle can be passed through a 20 Micron filters. the 5 Micron is more efferent to the 20 Micron.

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 kind of whole house water filter is best for fine dirt particles?

If you only have dirt particles in the water you can go with a 20" Big Blue whole house filtration unit. They usually come with sediment filters and in your case if the dirt is very fine you can get a 1 micron filter and that should remove it all but if there is alot you can go with a dual stage and put either a carbon filter or another sediment.

Can filtering synthetic oil change it is it a combination of elements such that the larger molecules could be submicron filtered out?

OK If I understand this correctly you are asking if you using a combination of filters can change the properties of a synthetic oil. The answer is NO. Your standard oil filter, filters at a micron rating in the 20 micron range, automotive full-flow oil filter is able to trap and hold essentially all the contaminant particles larger than 25 microns. (A human hair measures approximately 70 microns in diameter. An object that is 1 micron in size is .000039 inches in diameter.) Adding a second filter or Bypass filter to filter out smaller particles is a great way to extend the life of your oil.
