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

What happens when you multiply both a numerator and a denominator of a fraction by 4?

You will get an equivalent fraction.

What happens when you multiply a fraction by a fraction?

Just multiply straight through. Numerator times numerator and denominator times denominator. a/b * c/d = ac/bd ======

What happens when you multiply both the numerator and denominator of a fraction by 4?

The value of the fraction remains unchanged

What happens when you multiply both the numerator and the denominator of a fraction by 9?

Nothing, there is no change, since you are multiplying by 9/9 = 1.

What happens to the fraction if the numerator is increased?

If the numerator of the fraction is increased and the denominator doesn't change, then the value of the fraction increases.

What happens when decrease in numerator and increase in denominator?

The fraction gets smaller or increases, depending on whether the numerator and denominator are positive or negative.

What happens if your numerator is bigger then your denominator?

It is then an improper or 'top heavy' fraction

What happens to the value of a fraction when you double its denominator?

You have to double the numerator, but the value of the fraction remians the same but if you dont double the numerator then you dont have the same fraction

What happens when you add subtract multiply and divide fractions?

The result (which should be simplified) is another fraction of some kind: * a proper (or vulgar fraction) with the numerator (top number) less than the denominator (bottom number); * an improper fraction with the numerator greater than the denominator which can be converted into a mixed number; or * an integer (whole number).

What happens when you multiply a fraction by minus one?

The numerator changes sign.

When the numerator is the same as the denominator what happens?

The fraction reduces to 1 - UNLESS they are both zero, in which case the fraction is undefined.

What happens to the denominator when you add fractions?

You must find a common denominator. You figure out the smallest number that all of your denominators are divisible by. If you have to multiply the denominators by 2, you must multiply the numerators by 2, then add the numerators together, and write above the common denominator. If you have to multiply one denominator to equal the other denominator, then you must multiply the numerator above that denominator, and finally add up the numerators and place above the common denominator. Then reduce the answer to its smallest fraction.
