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 formula for the sum of the numbers in the 100th row of Pascals triangle?

Each number in Pascal's triangle is used twice when calculating the row below. Consequently the row total doubles with each successive row. If the row containing a single '1' is row zero, then T = 2r where T is the sum of the numbers in row r. So for r=100 T = 2100 = 1267650600228229401496703205376

How do you do triangle math on brain age when there are four numbers across the top?

To do triangle math on "Brain Age" when there are four numbers on top of the screen, a person has to draw a triangle, then draw a vertical line straight down the middle. Each triangle then shares the line in the middle.

Can a triangle be both acute and equilateral explain?

For a triangle to be acute, all the angles are less than 90o. In an equilateral triangle, each angle is the same; thus each is 180o ÷ 3 = 60o and so they are all less than 90o. Therefore a triangle can be both acute and equilateral.

4 dice each dice has 6 numbers how many combinations could there be?

6^4 = 1296 combinations but some are repeatable e.g. 1221 = 2121 = 2112 etc. so for the total number of non repeatable combinations with 4 dice, use pascals triangle to get 126 unique combinations.

How many numbers were in pascals triangle?

There is actually no limit to the number of numbers in Pascal's Triangle. The triangle is simply a way to remember the coefficients of the product of two binomials (or the expansion of a binomial raised to a power). See the link below. The triangle starts like this: 1 1 1 1 2 1 1 3 3 1 1 4 6 4 1 It goes on forever. Simply begin and end each row with a one and find the numbers in the middle by adding the two above it. Edit: I don't know how to make the above triangle look correct here. The program wants to remove all of the spaces, making the triangle look like a right triangle. Just ignore that. It should look like a pyramid, with the top 1 in the center.

Can a right triangle also be an isosceles triangle or can it be an equilateral triangle explain?

A right triangle can be an isosceles triangle, because the definition of an isosceles triangle is a triangle that has 2 sides equal to each other. A 45,45,90 degree triangle has 2 sides equal to each other, while the hypotenuse is different. It cannot be an equilateral triangle because of the formula a^2+b^2=c^2. With this formula, there is no possible way that: a, b, and c can all be equal to each other. To recap: It can be an isosceles triangle, but not an equilateral one.

What kind of numbers do we find in pascal's triangle?

All counting numbers. In fact the second number in each row forms the sequence 1,2,3,4,...

What is the sum of all the numbers in row 50 of Pascal's triangle?

The sum of the numbers in each row of Pascal's triangle is twice the sum of the previous row. Perhaps you can work it out from there. (Basically, you should use powers of 2.)

Explain how you can use grid paper to draw a rectangle with a perimeter of 18 units?

I think if it were to be a triangle that it would be six on each

Can a triangle with a right angle also be an isosceles triangle explain?

Of course it can be. It can be anything like x units each of perpendicular and base, and hypotenuse of square root of 2 times x.
