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

To multiply a negative number and a negative number you should multiply their absolute values and make the product negative true or false?

That is false. A negative times a negative is always a positive. Since absolute numbers are always positive if you make it negative that is not correct.


When three negative are multiplied is the product positive or negative?

It is a positive. When you multiply a negative and a negative, it becomes a positive, then you multipy the positive with the other positive


Is the product of two positive integers always positive?

No the product of two integers will not always be a positive, because if you multiply a positive and a negative you'll get a negative.


Is the product of a negative and a positive number depend on which number is larger before you multiply them?

No. The product of a negative number and a positive number is always negative.


How do you multiply a negative number by a positive number?

You multiply the numbers just like you would normally except that the product will have a negative sign. Example: -6 X 5 = -30. When you multiply a negative number and a positive number, the product will always be negative. Multiplying two positive numbers or two negative numbers will give you positive products.


How do the rules for multiplying integers compare to the rules for dividing integers?

The product of two positive integers or two negative integers is positive.The product of a positive integer and a negative integer is negative.The quotient of two positive integers or two negative integers is positive.The quotient of a positive integer and a negative integer is negative.You multiply or divide integers just as you do whole numbers, except you must keep track of the signs. To multiply or divide signed integers, always multiply or divide the absolute values and use these rules to determine the sign of the answer.When you multiply two integers with the same signs, the result is always positive. Just multiply the absolute values and make the answer positive.Positive x positive = positiveNegative x negative = positiveWhen you multiply two integers with different signs, the result is always negative. Just multiply the absolute values and make the answer negative.Positive x negative = negativeNegative x positive = negativeWhen you divide two integers with the same sign, the result is always positive. Just divide the absolute values and make the answer positive.Positive ÷ positive = positiveNegative ÷ negative = positiveWhen you divide two integers with different signs, the result is always negative. Just divide the absolute values and make the answer negative.Positive ÷ negative = negativeNegative ÷ positive = negativeExamples1.2.3.4. LOVE YOU :)


How do you multiply a negative by a negative?

When multiplying two negative numbers you multiply as you would with regular positive numbers the product will ALWAYS be positive. Example: -3 x -3 = 9


Is the product of 8 positive and 3 negative numbers a positive or negative number?

The product would be a negative number. When you multiply with a negative, it doesn't matter how many negatives, the product will always be a negative. For example: if you were to multiply 2x3x4x5x6x7x8x9x-3x-7x-9=-68,584,320. If you don't believe me, use your calculator.


What is the rule in dividing integers?

The rule in dividing integers is to divide the absolute values. Two positive integers or two negative integers equals positive product. If one integer is positive and the other is negative, the product is negative.


Why is the product of two absolute values is always a positive number?

This is not strictly true, because an absolute value, and hence the product of two absolute values can be zero. It is, therefore true to say that the product of two absolute values is always non-negative. An absolute value of a number is, by definition, non-negative. And by the definition of multiplication, the product of two non-negative numbers in non-negative.


How do you find the product of two numbers when one is positive and one is negative?

A product is the answer when you multiply numbers or terms together. The product of two positive numbers is positive. ie. 2x2=4. The product of two negative numbers is positive. ie -(2)x(-2)=4 The product of a negative number and positive number is a negative number. ie. (-2)x 2=-4 In general, multiply the numbers as you normally would, and if the signs are different. the product is negative. If the signs are all the same, the product is positive. Remember that if a negative number is outside brackets, the question might be approached a bit differently.


Why is the product positive when there is an even number of negative factors?

Due to the sign rules for multiplication, if you multiply several negative numbers, you'll get a result that is alternately negative, positive, negative, positive, etc.
