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

We use three coins (quarter, nickel, dime) each are flipped only once. We get 8 possible outcomes (or four outcomes as an alternative).

There are 23 = 8 possible outcomes.

Two coins are flipped and a die is rolled how many possible outcomes are there?

Each coin can land in two ways.The die has 6 possible outcomes.So there are 2 x 2 x 6 = 24 possible outcomes for the whole experiment.Note that I am assuming the coins can be told apart - say the first coin and 2nd coin and that H and then T is different that T and then H. If not, then there are only be three outcomes for the coins-- 2 heads, 1 head or no heads and the total number of outcomes would be 3 X 6 = 18.

How many possible outcomes would be if three coins were tossed once?

What is the probability of getting three or more heads when four coins are flipped?

Number of possible outcomes with 4 coins = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 16.Number of successes = 2. (Three heads or four heads)Probaility of success = 2/16 = 1/8 = 12.5 percent

It is 0.5

What are the possible outcomes if three coins are tossed and die is rolled?

There are 48 possible outcomes and I have no intention of listing them all. They are all of the form CCCD where C = H or T, and D takes the numeric values from 1 to 6.
