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

Are rational numbers closed under subtraction operation?

Yes, they are.


Are rational numbers closed under division multiplication addition or subtraction?

Rational numbers are closed under addition, subtraction, multiplication. They are not closed under division, since you can't divide by zero. However, rational numbers excluding the zero are closed under division.


Under what operation is the set of positive rational numbers not closed?

Subtraction.


Is the sum of rational numbers always rational?

Yes. In general, the set of rational numbers is closed under addition, subtraction, and multiplication; and the set of rational numbers without zero is closed under division.


Are rational numbers are closed under addition subtraction division or multiplication?

The set of rational numbers is closed under all 4 basic operations.


Are rational numbers under addition a group?

Yes.


Which sets of numbers are closed under subtraction?

To be closed under an operation, when that operation is applied to two member of a set then the result must also be a member of the set. Thus the sets ℂ (Complex numbers), ℝ (Real Numbers), ℚ (Rational Numbers) and ℤ (integers) are closed under subtraction. ℤ+ (the positive integers), ℤ- (the negative integers) and ℕ (the natural numbers) are not closed under subtraction as subtraction can lead to a result which is not a member of the set.


Are rational number commutative under subtraction and division?

No.


Is the set of rational numbers a commutative group under the operation of division?

No, it is not.


Is the set of integers closed under subtraction?

yes, because an integer is a positive or negative, rational, whole number. when you subject integers, you still get a positive or negative, rational, whole number, which means that under the closure property of real numbers, the set of integers is closed under subtraction.


Are rational numbers are closed under addition subtraction multiplication and division?

They are closed under all except that division by zero is not defined.
