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

-3


What is the multiplicative inverse of negative 4 over 3?

Flip it upside down. Now you have negative three over four. That's your multiplicative inverse (reciprocal) -3/4


Whats the Multiplicative Inverse of negative fifteen and two thirds?

If the multiplicative inverse of a number is the number that you could multiply with the original number in order to obtain one, then the mulitplicative inverse of -15 and 2/3 is -3/47 negative three fourtysevenths, or negative three over fourtyseven.


Is the additive inverse of any rational number is negative?

No. The additive inverse of zero or a negative rational number is not negative.


Multiplicative inverse of a negative number?

The multiplicative inverse is the negative of the reciprocal of the positive value. Thus the multiplicative inverse of -7 is -1/7.


Multiplicative inverse of -3?

The multiplicative inverse of -3 is -(1/3) or negative one-third. The multiplicative inverse of a number is the number that you multiply it by to get a result of 1 (the multiplicative identity). So, since -3 times -(1/3) is 1, -(1/3) is the multiplicative inverse of -3. Similarly, +3 is the ADDITIVE inverse of -3. The additive inverse of a number is the number you add to it to get a result of 0 (the additive identity). So, since -3 + (+3) = 0, +3 is the additive inverse of -3. The original answer given here was that the multiplicative inverse of -3 is +3, which is flat incorrect.


Is the inverse of a negative number a negative number?

Yes


Is the opposite of a negative number always sometimes or never a negative number?

never a negative number * * * * * ... true if, by opposite, you mean the additive inverse. However, the multplicative inverse is also an opposite. And the multiplicative inverse of a negative number is always negative.


What is the multiplicative inverse of negative two thirds?

-2/3 -> [mult.inverse] -> -3/2 which is -1½or -1.5 ; note that a number, when multiplied by its multiplicative inverse will have a product of 1. So if you multiply these two you get 6/6 which equals 1 [negative times negative is positive].

How a negative affects a multiplicative inverse?

A number and its multiplicative inverse have the same sign. So if one is negative, so is the other.


What is the inverse of 3?

The inverse of 3 is 1/3.


What is the difference between additive and multiplicative inverse?

The additive inverse is the inverse under addition; the multiplicative inverse is the inverse under multiplication. For example, the additive inverse of any real or complex number is its negative: the inverse of 3 is -3 and vice versa. The multiplicative inverse of a number other than 0 (which has no such inverse) is its reciprocal: the inverse of 2 is 1/2, and vice versa. Adding a number and its additive inverse gives the additive identity, 0. Multiplying a number by its multiplicative inverse gives the multiplicative identity, 1.


What is the additive inverse of 5?

The additive inverse for a number is its negative value. The sum of an integer and its additive inverse is zero. For the example (5), the additive inverse would be (-5).


Is a additive inverse of any rational number a negative number?

What is the multiplicative inverse of negative one half?

-2 (negative two) The multiplicative inverse (reciprocal) for a number x is 1/x.


Another name for additive inverse?

As far as positive numbers are concerned, the additive inverse of a positive number is a negative number with the same magnitude (i.e. the additive inverse of 5 is -5). It would be wrong to simply say that "negative" and "additive inverse" are correct, because the additive inverse of a negative number is a positive number.
