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 can the associative property can be used to mentally find the volume of a prism?

In general, the associative property cannot be used for this purpose. The volume of a prism is the area of cross section multiplied by the length, and except in the case of a rectangular prism, there is no scope for using the associative property.

Which of the expressions below cannot be rewritten using the associative property?


Multiply by using distributive property n 4n 9?

You need the associative and commutative properties, but not the distributive property. n*4n*9 =n*(4n*9) (associative) = n*(9*4n) (commutative) = n*(36n) (associative) = 36n*n commutative = 36*n^2

Associative property of addition using integers?

The associative property states, no matter how you order three or more integers being added, they will always equal the same solution. For example, A + (B + C) = (A +B) + C * * * * * The equation is correct but the description is not. When you say "no matter how you order three or more integers" you are implying that A + B + C = A + C + B and that need not be true. Associativity refers to the order in which the summation is carried out. That does not matter.

In the following problem what property allows you to multiply 5 by 2 before multiplying by 13?

I am guessing your problem is to compute 5 times 2 times 13. In this case, the property you are using the associative property.

Simplify law of addition?

The Associative Law of Addition says that changing the grouping of numbers that are added together does not change their sum. This law is sometimes called the Grouping Property. Examples: x + (y + z) = (x + y) + z. Here is an example using numbers where x = 5, y = 1, and z = 7.

How can you show the associative property of multiplication using the numbers 2 and negative 2?

Answer: The associative property involves three numbers, not two. Of course, you can use one of the numbers more than once. For example, show, by calculation, that (2 x 2) x -2 = 2 x (2 x -2).

What is the answer to 4 times 25 times 27 using the a associative property of multiplication?

4*25*27 = (4*25)*27 = 100*27 = 2700

What is commutative property of addition using decimal numbers?

The commutative property of addition applies to all real and complex numbers. It has nothing whatsoever to do with the form in which the number is represented: decimal, binary, etc.

What property is RS plus RS equals 2RS?

The distributive property of multiplication over addition and the identity property of multiplication. RS + RS = 1*RS + 1*RS (using identity property) = (1 + 1)*RS (using distributive property) = 2*RS
