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

yes


What is a short definition for Associative Property?

In general, the associative property states that "a · (b · c) = (a · b) · c" for some operation "·". In other words, if an operation is associative, the order in which multiple calculations involving it are performed is irrelevant.

The associative power applies to an operation- such as multiplication or addition - not to specific numbers.


Is there an equivalent for factorials when dividing?

No, because division is not an associative operation.


What are the definitions of associative property?

The associative property is the property that a * (b * c) = (a * b) * c for any binary operation *. Addition and multiplication are associative, but these are definitely not the only two operations that obey this property.


Does commutative law apply in the operation of sets?

Is multiplication a whole numbers associative operation?

Yes. Multiplication of any real numbers has the associative property: (a x b) x c = a x (b x c)


what is the associative property of numbers?

The ASSOCIATIVE property for addition states that the order in which the operation is carried out does not matter. Symbolically, (a + b) + c = a + (b + c) and so, without ambiguity, either can be written as a + b + c. Rational numbers are also associative under multiplication.


What is the associative properties of rational numbers?

The ASSOCIATIVE property for addition states that the order in which the operation is carried out does not matter. Symbolically, (a + b) + c = a + (b + c) and so, without ambiguity, either can be written as a + b + c. Rational numbers are also associative under multiplication.


What is the associative property in math?

The way in which numbers are grouped when added or multiplied does not change the sum or product.In symbols the associative property of addition says that (a+b) +c = a + (b +c) where a,b, and c are any numbers.The associative property for multiplication says that (ab)c=a(bc).Informally, the associative property says that grouping does not matter when applying the operation.


Is the operation of multiplication associative over z?
