900 This explains it. A positive integer is a palindrome if it reads the same forward and backwards such as 1287821 and 4554. Determine the number of 5-digit positive integers which are NOT palindromes. We start by counting the total number of 5 digit positive integers. The first digit is between 1 and 9, so we have 9 choices. Each of the other 4 digits can be anything at all (10 choices for each). This gives us 9(10)4 = 90000 five-digit positive integers. Now we need to count the number of 5 digit palindromes. Again, we have 9 choices for the first digit and 10 choices for each of the next two. The tens and units digits however are fixed by our choices so far. Therefore, there are only 900 five-digit palindromes. Therefore, the total number of five-digit positive integers which are not palindromes is 90000-900 = 89100.

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
