Best Answer

No. Since both numbers are even, they each can be divide by 2.

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

When the numerator and denominator of a faction have no factors in common?

Everything has something in common, even if it's just one. When the numerator and the denominator have a GCF of 1, the fraction is said to be in its simplest form.

Can a fraction that is in simplified form ever have an even number in the numerator and an even number in the denominator?

No. If it has an even number in the numerator and the denominator, then both are divisible by 2, and the fraction is NOT simplified.

What do you do when there is no GCF of a fraction?

There is always a GCF, even if it's only 1. If the GCF of the numerator and the denominator is 1, the fraction is already in its simplest form.

What is 19 over 27 in simplest form?

Since the numerator of the fraction is prime, the proper fraction 19/27 is already expressed in its simplest form. * * * * * Correct answer, wrong reason. The requirement is that the numerator and denominator are coprime, not that either of them is prime. For example, 19/38 can be simplified to 1/2 even though the numerator is prime. Conversely, 8/9 cannot be simplified even though neither the numerator nor the denominator are prime.

If both the numerator and denominator of a fraction are even is the fraction in simplest form?

No. This cannot be. If both the numerator and denominator of a fraction are even, both are divisible by 2, and the fraction must reduce to a simpler form. It must reduce. Let's look at a couple. 2/4 = 1/2 6/26 = 3/13 22/166 = 11/83 434/9252 = 217/4626 It turns out that all even numbers are divisible by 2, so any, that is, every fraction with an even number in the numerator and the denominator can be reduced at least one "step" by dividing both numerator and denominator by 2. Another way to look at this or say it is that all even numbers have 2 as a factor, so you'll be able to factor out a 2 from both the numerator and denominator of a fraction if both numbers are even. There is no way not to do this.

What will the denominator be in the equivalent fraction for 64.50?

The denominator can be any even integer. In the equivalent fraction, the numerator would be 129 times half that integer.

What is nominator and denominator?

In a fraction, the numerator represent the part out of the denominator which represents the total. Neither need be rational (or even real).

What would .86 be as a fraction in the simplest form?

.86 is 86/100, but the numerator and denominator are both even, so divide each by 2 to get 43/50, and that is in lowest terms.

How do you simplify a fraction then write it as a decimal?

simply divide the numerator and denominator by two. if they are not even, find another multiple that fits both the numerator and denominator. once you have simplified the fraction, just turn the denominator into 100 (make sure you multiply or divide only) then multiply or divide the same number by the numerator, then you divide it by 100 and you get your answer!!!!!

What is the denominator for the rational number 2?

The numerator must be an even number and the denominator is half of the numerator.

How do you rename a fraction as a whole number of hundredths?

It is only possible if the denominator of the fraction, in its simplest form, is a factor of 100. In that case, find the number of times the denominator goes into 100 and then multiply the numerator of the fraction by that number. For example, suppose the given fraction is 17/20. The denominator, 20, goes into 100 five times. Therefore, multiply the numerator, 17, by 5 to give the answer as 85/100. Note that this is not possible for even simple fractions like 1/3 because 3 does not go into 100 evenly.

What term has a numerator and denominator with no common factor?

If the numerator and denominator are prime numbers and not equal then they don't have common factors (except 1 which would be a common factor even if the numerator and denominator were prime numbers).
