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 is the difference between frequency distribution and relative frequency distribution?

Frequency distribution refers to a set of frequencies with a particular set of values into which a statistical population is grouped. Relative frequency refers to data presented in a table that demonstrates the relative frequency of multiple non-overlapping classes.

What are the parts of a frequency distribution table?

What is the advantage of relative frequency distribution vs distribution frequency?

These help to distribute the frequency much better than the latter. The noise might not be as loud or boisterous this way.

What is the difference between absolute frequency and relative frequency?

absolute frequency is a term decribing the total number of trials you did. a relative frequency is the number of measurements in an interval of a frequency distribution. or the ratio of the number of times an event occurs in a series of trials of a chance experiment to the number of trials of the experiment performed. so the difference is one is the total trials, and the other...well it depends on which definition you picked...

What is cumulative percent?

Cumulative percentage is another way of expressing frequency distribution. It calculates the percentage of the cumulative frequency within each interval, much as relative frequency distribution calculates the percentage of frequency.
