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 a whole number is multiplied by a decimal smaller than one what can you conclude about the result?

The result is less than the whole number and greater than or equal to the decimal. Unless the whole number is negative in which case the result is greater than the whole number and less than or equal to the decimal.


How can you use division facts to help you divide a decimal less than 1 by a whole number?

The long division abstract method works with any number, including numbers that are less than one. The answer will also be a decimal, or if the number is a negative number, than the answer, or quotient will also be negative.

If you multiply a non zero whole number by a decimal less than one would the product be less than or greater than the whole number?

It depends on the signs of the two numbers.The answer is tricky when at least one number is negative because you have to remember that "less than" means "farther to the left on the number line" and NOT "greater in magnitude". E.g. -20 is less than -4 because -20 is farther to the left even though its magnitude (absolute value) is greater.There are four possible cases:Whole number and decimal are both positive: The product is less than the whole number. The decimal reduces the magnitude of the product, so the product is to the left of the whole number on the number line. E.g. 0.5 * 10 = 5, which is less than 10.Whole number positive, decimal negative. The product less than the whole number. A negative times a positive is ALWAYS negative, so regardless of its magnitude the product is to the left of the positive whole number on the number line. E.g. 15 * (-0.2) = -3 and -3 < 15Whole number negative, decimal negative. The product is greater than the whole number. The product is negative but like in Case 1, the magnitude of the product is smaller, so the product is to the right of the whole number on the number line. E.g. (-8) * 0.3 = -2.4 and -8 < -2.4Whole number negative, decimal negative. The product is greater than the whole number. A negative times a negative is positive, and ANY positive number is always greater than any negative number regardless of magnitude. E.g. (-0.25) * (-12) = +3 and -12 < +3


Is a negative greater or less than a positive number?

A negative number is less than a positive number. Think about it this way: a negative number is less than 0. A positive number is greater than 0. Therefore, a negative number must be less than a positive number.
