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 do you do when comparing fractions and the denominator and the numerator are different?

Convert them into equivalent fractions with the same denominator and then compare the numerators.


Explain how comparing fractions with like denominators differs from comparing fractions with unlike denominators?

Because when you compare fractions with the same denominators, you do not have to find the least common denominator (LCM or LCD).


How can you compare fractions of the same whole?

you compare them


How do you compare fractions?

You can either convert fractions to decimals and compare the decimal numbers; find equivalent fractions with the same denominator and then compare numerators or find equivalent fractions with the same numerator and then compare denominators.


What is the definition of comparing fractions?

when 2 fractions have the same denomenator, the one the larger numerator is greater.


How do you do comparing fractions?

Fractions can be compared by seeing if the numerator and the denominator have the same numbers multiplied on the top and bottom.


What do fractions need to have to compare them?

The same numerator or the same denominator.


How do you compare 3 or more fractions?

Find the equivalent fractions with the same denominator (the least common multiple) and then compare the numerators.


What are three rules you can use to compare fractions?

Rule #1 When two fractions have the same denominator, the bigger fraction is the one with the bigger numerator. Rule # 2 When comparing fractions that have the same numerator, the bigger fraction is the one with the smaller denominator. Rule # 3 You can convert the fractions and then just put the greater than, less than or equal to sign to see what the comparison is between the fractions.


Fractions can be added and subtracted only if they're fractions?

We can only add or subtract fractions if they have the same denominators


How do you compare fractions with the same denominator but different numerators?

The fractions can be ordered according to the order of their numerators.


How do you use comparing mixed fractions?

Assuming the fractions are "normalized" (the fractional part is less than 1): First compare the integer part. If the integer part is the same, you need to compare the fractions. If the denominator of the fractions is different, you have to convert to a common denominator. The simplest way to find a common denominator is to multiply both denominators (i.e., you don't need the LEAST common denominator - any common denominator will do).
