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

The LCD of two fractions is the same as the LCM of their denominators.

Is the LCD of two fractions the same as the LCM of the numerators of the fractions?

The "D" in LCD stands for denominator. The LCD is the same process as the LCM of the denominators.

What is difference between LCM and LCD?

They are practically the same except for the fact that LCD is for fractions and LCM is not.

How are the LCM and the LCD different?

LCM can apply to terms which don't look like fractions LCD (denominator) has to be fractions. The LCM of the denominators is the LCD.

What is the LCD for fractions?

The LCD for fractions is the LCM (least common multiple) of all of the denominators.

What is the LCD of 11 and 18?

The LCM of these numbers is 198. (LCD is just the LCM of the denominators of fractions.)

What is common between he LCM and LCD?

The same process can be used to find them. They're essentially the same thing, except the LCD is used with fractions.

Difference LCD and LCM?

The function of the numbers in question. The process is the same. When comparing two whole numbers, we call it the LCM. When comparing two fractions, we call it the LCD.

Find the LCD then add or subtract?

To add or subtract fractions the denominators must be the same - then the numerators are added or subtracted with the denominator being kept the same.When adding or subtracting fractions with different denominators, the fractions must first be converted into equivalent fractions with the same denominator and then the (new) numerators can be added or subtracted as required.For the denominator for these equivalent fractions, the original denominators can all be multiplied together, but this can lead to having to work with very large numbers; a better choice for the denominator is the smallest number that all the denominators divide into, their Least Common Multiple (LCM) - this is is then used as the denominator for the equivalent fractions and is called the Least Common Denominator (LCD) of the fractions.First you find the LCD okay??? Then you have to add or subtract. What they mean by that is that once you've found your lcd add or subtract..xx hope i helped :)

What is the relationship between the LCM and LCD?

When adding or subtracting fractions with different denominators you must find their LCD and this done by finding their LCM

How does the concept of LCM relate to fractions?

When you are adding or subtracting fractions with unlike denominators, you need to find a least common denominator, or LCD. The process is the same as finding an LCM between two integers.

Explain how comparing fractions with like denominators differs from comparing fractions with unlike denominators?

Because when you compare fractions with the same denominators, you do not have to find the least common denominator (LCM or LCD).
