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 is the sum of the first 15 terms of an arithmetic?

For an Arithmetic Progression, Sum = 15[a + 7d].{a = first term and d = common difference} For a Geometric Progression, Sum = a[1-r^15]/(r-1).{r = common ratio }.

What is the sum of the first 100 multiples of 3?

The solution to the given problem can be obtained by sum formula of arithmetic progression. In arithmetic progression difference of two consecutive terms is constant. The multiples of any whole number(in sequence) form an arithmetic progression. The first multiple of 3 is 3 and the 100th multiple is 300. 3, 6, 9, 12,... 300. There are 100 terms. The sum 3 + 6 + 9 + 12 + ... + 300 can be obtained by applying by sum formula for arithmetic progression. Sum = (N/2)(First term + Last term) where N is number of terms which in this case is 100. First term = 3; Last term = 300. Sum = (100/2)(3 + 300) = 50 x 303 = 15150.

What is the sum of the first 450 consecutive odd numbers?

You can use one of the formulae for the sum of an arithmetic progression to calculate that.

What is the Formula for arithmetic progression?

An arithmetic sequence is usually given by a formula in which the nth term, T(n), is given in terms of the first term, a, and the common difference, d: t(n) = a + d*(n-1) where n= 1, 2, 3, etc An alternative is to define it iteratively. Thus: t1 = a tn = tn-1 + d , where n = 2, 3, 4, etc

What is the difference between arithmetic progression and geometric progression?

In an arithmetic progression the difference between each term (except the first) and the one before is a constant. In a geometric progression, their ratio is a constant. That is, Arithmetic progression U(n) - U(n-1) = d, where d, the common difference, is a constant and n = 2, 3, 4, ... Equivalently, U(n) = U(n-1) + d = U(1) + (n-1)*d Geometric progression U(n) / U(n-1) = r, where r, the common ratio is a non-zero constant and n = 2, 3, 4, ... Equivalently, U(n) = U(n-1)*r = U(1)*r^(n-1).

What formula represents the partial sum of the first n terms of the series 5 10 15 20 25?

The series given is an arithmetic progression consisting of 5 terms with a common difference of 5 and first term 5 → sum{n} = (n/2)(2×5 + (n - 1)×5) = n(5n + 5)/2 = 5n(n + 1)/2 As no terms have been given beyond the 5th term, and the series is not stated to be an arithmetic progression, the above formula only holds for n = 1, 2, ..., 5.

Who and when was the first scientist to discover global warming?

Svante Arrhenius (1859-1927) in 1896 was a Swedish scientist who developed what is now know as the 'greenhouse gas law':"if the quantity of carbonic acid increases in geometric progression, the augmentation of the temperature will increase nearly in arithmetic progression"
