Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01. There is one term and the coefficient is 9 2. There are two terms and the coefficient of h is 3, the coefficient of a is8 3. There are three terms and the coefficients are: 2 for a, 3 for s and 1 for z. Do you see what's going on?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0add like terms if possible and write the result with the exponents in descending order. 4m^72m^7... I got 2m^7 is that right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Are you supposed to add 4m^7 and 2m^7?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because if that's the case, you have\[4m^7+2m^7=6m^7\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have no clue I typed it just as it asked lol. I thought that since ooo wait your right because 4 and 2 arnt like terms. ok so 6^7 ok so the next one is 7y^8  4y^7=?

monae

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or since there are no like terms would it be 4y^7  7y^8 since thats descending orded

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Like terms are terms that have the same letter. So 7x and 4x would be like terms because they both share 'x'. 7x and 4y are not like terms because x and y are different. When they ask you to sum like terms, they're asking you to do something like the following: 3x 7y +2x y = (3x+2x) + (7y+y) = 5x 8y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Add like terms, if possible, and write the result with the exponents in descending order. 1... 7y^8  4y^7 = .. so I figured it would be 4y^7  7y^8 seeing how I cant add the terms

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Nearly. Though, I'm glad you saw that you couldn't add the terms. The question asked for exponents in descending order, so you'd have to rearrange your answer as 7y^84y^7 which looks, to me, like what they gave you in the question anyway, by coincidence.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0o i had it backwards. ok. so here is another problem with the same question.... 3m^6+8m^54m^4+5m^62m^5 .... = 2m^6+6m^54m^4 ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol, what happened to your m^5 term? What's 8 + 5?

monae

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.013... but since its 2m^5 wouldnt it be 8m^52m^5 to = 6m^5?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh I'm sorry, I stuffed it. It's hard deciphering. You're absolutely right. You have the hang of it :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol ok.. and i know it would make it easier if the powers actually worked on here so the numbers would be above,. So it says... Perform the indicated operation. 1. (2 + 3n^7  8n^5) + (9n^7 + 6n^5  5).. i havent worked on this one yet so let me try it then tell me if i did anything wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The 7 is actually\[7n^0\]I don't know if you've ever seen something like that. Whenever you raise a number to the power of 0, the result is 1. So when we order from highest to lowest powers, the constant goes on the end because the power of n is the lowest...0.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0These don't have to be in descending order for the exponents so the only thing i got wrong woul,d be the 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So do I still have to write it descending like you did or is my answer right and I just have to replace the 3 with a 7

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If they don't ask for it, TECHNICALLY it's correct. BUT mathematicians, as a matter of course, always write the polynomial in descending order BECAUSE it makes our lives easier in the end when we're trying to calculate things. I suspect it would be easier for your teachers too.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Only problem is that my proffesor doesn't check to see if you have the right answers he only checks to see if you have something written down and that you tried the problem. I think its very idiotic to have that seeing how we won't learn if we did the homework right or not.
