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

From the two related links, one reason the 2s complement is preferred, because you don't have to worry about the carry bit in 2s complement. Another reason: there is only one identity element in 2s compl., but there are two identity elements in one's complement.

Recall, the Identity Element for Addition and Subtraction is zero. If you add or subtract zero from any number, you get that number back. In 1's complement, there is a representation for zero and negative zero!

What is the distibutive property mean?

The distributive property is a property that relates to two binary operations and operates over a set.According to the distributive property of multiplication over division, if a, b and c are three elements of a set S, thena*(b + c) = a*b+a*cMultiplication is also distributive over subtraction.

Can the operation subtraction have properties?

Not by itself. A mathematical operation has properties in the context of a set over which it is defined. It is possible to have a set over which properties are not valid.Having said that, the set of rational numbers is closed under subtraction, as is the set of real numbers or complex numbers.Multiplication is distributive over subtraction.
