The product of an odd and even number will always have 2 as a factor. Therefore, it will always be even.

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

Is the product of a negative and a positive integer always negative?

Yes.


Is the product of any two integers an integer?

Yes, the product of 2 integers are always an integers. ex. -2*3=-6


What can you say about the sum of an even integer and an even integer use inductive reasoning to form a conjecture then use deductive reasoning to show that the conjecture is true?

Conjecture: the sum of two even integers is always an even integer.Suppose M and N are two even integers.M is even and so it is divisible by 2 without remainder. That is to say, there is some integer X, such that M = 2X.Similarly, N = 2Y for some Y.Then M + N = 2X + 2Y=2*(X + Y) due to the distributive property of multiplication over addition of integers.And, by the closure of the set of integers under addition, X+Y is an integer.Therefore, M + N is equal to 2 times an integer and therefore it is an even integer.


Is the product of two perfect squares sometimes a perfect square?

yes..always a perfect square A perfect square is the product of an integer by itself. If you multiply a perfect square x² by another perfect square y² you get x²y² = x·x·y·y = x·y·x·y = (x·y)² which is a perfect square. Note that the product of two integers will also be an integer so x·y must be an integer because if x² and y² are perfect squares x must be an integer and y must be an integer and x·y is therefore a product of 2 integers.


What does an integer plus another integer equal?

an integer plus and integer will always be an integer. We say integers are closed under addition.

Inductive reasoning is empirical in nature which means that it is based on observations and?

Inductive reasoning use theories and assumptions to validate observations. It involves reasoning from a specific case or cases to derive a general rule. The result of inductive reasoning are not always certain because it uses conclusion from observations to make generalizations. Inductive reasoning is helpful for extrapolation, prediction, and part to whole arguments.
