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

How you do you find the exponent when is divided in scientific notation?

If the exponent of the numerator is a and the exponent of the denominator is b then the crude exponent of their quotient is a-b. However, if the mantissa of the quotient is less than 1 then it needs to be brought into the range [1, 10) and in doing that, the exponent will become a-b-1.

If you have a negative exponent, then put 1/the number multiplied by itself the number of times of the exponent. For example: 3-2=1/(3x3)=1/9

When you divide powers having the same base, subtract the numerator from the denomenator. Put the base in the part of the fraction where the original exponent was larger.

What are the rules for positive integral exponent?

There are 5 laws: Product Law: This is when the same bases are being multiplied ex. 83 X 82 this is the same as 8x8x8 8x8 when the same bases are being multiplied you just add the exponents so the answer would be 85 Quotient Law: This is when the same bases are being divided. ex. 83 divided by 82 in other words 8x8x8 divided by 8x8 when the same bases are being divided you just subtract the exponents so the answer would be 81 Power of product law: here is an example : (8x3)2 in this problem all you have to do is apply the exponent to each number in side the bracket or multiply the exponent to each exponent inside the brackets, if there is no exponent you assume there is a 1 so you would do 8 1x2 and 3 1x2 and the answer would be 82x32 Power of quotient law: this is the same as the one above, you basically just multiply the exponent to the numbers inside the brackets. So if it was (8 divided by 3)4 you would assume there is an exponent 1 for both the numbers and multiply by four. 8 1x4 divided by 31x4 = 84 divided by 34 Power of a power law: What do you do if there is already an exponent inside the brackets? ex. (84)5 you would do the same thing. You multiply the exponents! if you put the question in standard form it is 8x8x8x8 repeated five times 8x8x8x8 8x8x8x8 8x8x8x8 8x8x8x8 8x8x8x8 how many 8s are there? 20 how do you solve in a much simpler way? you do 84x5 and get the 820

How do you find the product or quotient using positive exponents when you have negative ones?

Change the number or variable with the exponent from the numerator to the denominator, or from the denominator to the numerator, and at the same time change the exponent from negative to positive. For example, 5-3 = 1/53, and 1/x-10 = x10.
