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 terms of-3xy2 plus 2xy-4y3?

The three terms are: -3xy2, 2xy and -4y3


How do you simplify expression?

Multiply out all brackets (parentheses). Combine "like" terms. "Like" terms are those where any algebraic letters and their powers are exactly the same, but the numbers before them (the coefficients) may be different. Thus 2x2y and 3x2y are like terms and should be combined to make 5x2y. But 2x2y and 3xy2 are not like terms since in the first it is x that is squared while in the second it is y. Similarly, x and x2 are not like terms. Also, when combining terms, remember that x2y is 1x2y.


What monomial is 5x2y?

5x2y is itself a monomial, but it can be simplified to 10xy.


Is 5x2y plus 4x - 6 a binomial?

if the 5x2y means 5x2y + 4x - 6 then yes it is a binomial but if the 5x2y means 5x * 2y + 4x - 6 then no it is not a binomial a nomial means one degree. a binomial means something to the second power. a polynomial means anything that has a 3rd power and greater.


What type of polynomial is 5x2y?

That's a monomial.


What is the formula of monomials?

monomials are just polynomials with one term, i.e. 2xy2, n3, etc. A binomial has two terms, i.e. 3xy2+2, etc.

5x2 y equals 3x-6y as a function?

5x2y = 3x - 6y 5x2y + 6y = 3x y(5x2 + 6) = 3x y = (3x)/(5x2 + 6) This is a rational function.
