It simply means that there were more than one observations with the same value.

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 does it mean if a statistic is significant?

It means, within the laws of statistical analysis, that the statistic occurs more frequently than the baseline number which is considered "random" for the particular application. It happens more frequently than "random" - hence there is, or may be, something "significant" about that.

What do you mean by mode and what is the formula of mode?

The mode is the data value that occurs the most number of times. If there are two data values that occur the most, then you will have 2 modes and it is called bimodal. Three or more is called multimodal. For example, if you have a set of numbers - 1, 4, 3, 2, 6, 4, 8, 4, 7, 3, 5. The mode is 4 as it occurs the most number of times.

Does range mean the highest number subtracted by the lowest number?

Yes. Range is when you subtract the lowest number by the highest.

What is meaning of mode?

Mode is how often a number occurs in a set of data. To find the mode, you see which number occurs the most. There may be more than one mode. Example: 2, 3, 4, 4, 5, 7, 7, 7, 9, 13 The mode is 7 because it appears the most times in this set of data.

Mean median mode range?

Mathematically, the average is the sum of all values, divided by the number of values there are. This is known as the arithmetic mean. The Mode is the most common value in a list. This is good when there is a lot of repetition and you want to find the most common value. So you count the amounts of each individual number and the one that most commonly occurs is the mode. If more than one number occurs most often, then there is no mode. The Median is the middle value when all are arranged in numerical order, or the number halfway between the two middle values. This is useful when there is a value that is very different to all the others in your set. See the related question below. The range is the difference between the highest and lowest value. This shows how much of a spread there is in the values in your set.

How do you work out the mode in maths when no number occurs more than once?

If there is no single number that occurs more than once, either every number in the set is the mode or there is no mode - check with your teacher to see which answer he/she wants you to use.

Do roots transpire?

No, roots do not transpire. Most transpiration occurs in the stems and the leaves of plants. The bigger the leaf, the more moisture will transpire from the plant.

What does modeb2b10 tell us in excel?

=MODE(B2:B10) will give you the most commonly occurring number in that range of cells, if one number occurs more than any other number. If no number occurs more than once, it gives an error. If several numbers occur more than once and the same amount of times as each other, then it will return the first one that occurs most often.

Why are stomata more abundant in the lower epidermis of the leaf?

The upper side of a leaf is exposed to the sun to a greater extent than the lower side of a leaf. Therefore, water evaporating through the upper side will be more than the lower side of a leaf. The number of stomata is more abundant in the lower epidermis to help reduce the amount of water lost through transpiration.

It is a special way of plotting data in statistics. See link for more.

What is difference between mean and mode?

The mean is the average. For example if you had the numbers 11, 10, 12, 11, 7, and 15. You would add them up and divide by how many numbers there are (which in this case is 6). The number you get is your mean (in this case the means in 11).The mode is the number that occurs most often. Using the same set of numbers above (11, 10, 12, 11, 7, and 15), the mode would be 11 because that's the only number that occurs the most. In other words, there is more than one of the same number.
