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

Why does a positive times a negative produces a negative?

Because when there is a positive and a negative in the same problem, it gives you a negative. An easy way to solve problems like that is if there is an odd number of negative signs, then your answer is going to be negative. If there is an even number of negative signs, then your answer is going to be positive. (no matter if there is a positive sign in a math problem).

How do you solve the problem -2 plus 5 equals?

To solve -2 plus 5 equals, it's probably easier to start with the positive number and add the negative number to it. The equation will look like this: 5 + (-2) = Because you are adding a negative number, you actually have to subtract the 2, rather than add it, so your answer will be 3.

How do you solve 5 minus negative 6?

To solve the problem 5 - -6, think of it as 5 + 6. You can do this because two negative numbers equal as positive number, and similarly two negative signs equal a positive. Therefore 5 --6 is 11.

How do you determine negatives or positives in math equations?

Numbers are justified as positive, which is usually written as just a number but can be written with a plus (+) sign in front of the number. (e.g. 15 or +15), or negative. Negative numbers are numbers in the negative integers, or below 0. They are written with a minus (-) sign in front of them. (e.g. -15) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ..::To solve remember these rules::.. When multiplying: positive x negative = negative positive x positive = positive negative x negative = positive When dividing: positive / negative = negative positive / positive = positive negative / negative = positive When adding: In a positive + negative situation, if the negative number has a higher number than the positive (e.g. -25 + 10) then the number is negative, this is always true when adding a higher negative to a positive. If the positive has a higher number (e.g. 25 + -10) then it's just the opposite, it will be a positive number. -------------You can solve these very easily: 25 + -10 --> (25) + (-10) to keep it well organized and easier to work with,now just remember "Keep Change Change"... - keep 25 as it is, change "+" to a "-" and change the "-10" to a positive 10. As a result, you will have: 25 - 10. Now solve. Answer = 15 (positive). If for instance you have a negative + positive, the same rules apply (Keep Change Change) negative + negative = negative positive + positive = positive When subtracting: negative - positive (vice versa), use Keep Change Change as you did with adding positives and negatives. negative - negative, use Keep Change Change positive - positive, use Keep Change Change if the number you are subtracting is a higher number. (e.g. 10-15) If you need anymore help, try asking a more specific question again on Wikianswers, search for math websites on the web, or ask your teacher or college professor for help.

If you add a negative and a negative it equals?

Adding a negative number to a negative number makes a larger negative. In order to solve this you add the numbers together as a positive then add a negative sign.

How do you solve this 18 - 7 0?

to solve 18-70 you would subtract just like any other equation. 18-70 is equal to a negative number, -52.

If you add a negative and a positive it equals?

It depends on which is further from zero. If it is on the negative side, it will be negative otherwise it is positive. -4 + 6 = 2 -8 + 5 = -3 ___________________ It depends on which of the two numbers is larger. If you add -3 and 6, you get 3 as your answer. But if you add -6 and 3, you get -3 as your answer. To solve, you always subtract the (chronologically) larger number from the smaller one, and the final answer is either positive or negative based on which of the original numbers was larger. To reiterate, -3 plus 6 equals 3, and the answer is a positive number because the higher number in the original equation (6) was as well.
