Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1would this be number three? \[18^2 +5a^1b^16y^1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that's 6y^1 but I think the one is negative

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[18x^2 + 5ab − 6y\] has degree 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh okay so if it doesn't show an exponent then you kind of make your own

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok here is a polynomial with three terms \[xy^2+x^2y^2+2xy\]

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0each term has a degree ' the degree of \[xy^2\] is \[1+2=3\] th degree of \(x^2y^2\) is \(2+2=4\) and the degree of \(2xy\) is \(1+1=2\)

lalaland_lauren
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so the degrees are the exponents added up

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the "degree of the polynomial" is the degree of the term of highest degree, so the degree of \[xy^2+x^2y^2+2xy\] is \(4\)

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, the degree of each term is the sum of the degrees of each variable so for example the degree of \(xy^2z^4\) is \(7\)

lalaland_lauren

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and whichever has the highest degree is the degree of the polynomial?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sorry if I repeat things, just trying to get it through to myself

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you are right, the degree of the polynomial is the degree of the term of highest degree

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so for example if you just have on variable, the degree of say \[2x^5+3x^2+5x+1\] is \(5\) but if you have more than one variable you have to add the degrees of each variable

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0with that in mind, what is the degree of \[4x^4 + 3x^2 − x − 4\]?

lalaland_lauren
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the degree of the polynomial would be 4 because of 4x^4

lalaland_lauren

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[4x^4+3x^2x4\] first set has a degree of four, second set has a degree of two, and the third I think it's one but I'm not sure if it's negative one

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a polynomial cannot have a term of negative degree

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x + 2xyz degree of 3 9x3y2 degree of 5 18x2 + 5ab − 6y degree of 2 I'm pretty sure 4x4 + 3x2 − x − 4 4

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol i will let you order them yourself, you got them all right

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[x^25x+\color{red}3\] the constant is \(\color{red}3\)

lalaland_lauren

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so one with no exponent or variable, just a flat out number

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right called a "constant" because it does not depend of what \(x\) is

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i have a question do you know what \\[2x^3+5x^2+4x+7\] is if \(x=10\)?

lalaland_lauren
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[2(10)^3+5(10)^2+4(10)+7\] \[2(1,000)+5(100)+40+7\] two thousand five hundred and forty seven

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right so you see we write our whole numbers as polynomials, using base ten (instead of x)

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[2(10)^3+5(10)^2+4(10)+7=2547\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0keep that in mind when you learn to add, subtract and multiply polynomials it works pretty much the same way as with whole numbers of course there are some differences, but it is basically the same

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Organize the following expressions from greatest to least by number of terms: x + 2xyz 9x2yz 18x2 + 5ab − 6y 4x3 + 3x2 − x − 4 Answers: III, IV, I, II IV, I, II, III IV, III, I, II III, II, IV, I

lalaland_lauren

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Because I think that terms are the sets in the polynomial

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Which statement best demonstrates why the following is a nonexample of a polynomial? \[\frac{ 33y^2 }{ x^2 }  62y^2xz35z^2y^2\] The expression has a variable raised to a negative exponent. The expression has a negative coefficient. The expression has a variable raised to a fraction. The expression has a variable in the denominator of a fraction.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0" The expression has a variable raised to a fraction." actually makes no sense at all go with D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0unless it means something iike \[x^{\frac{2}{3}}\]which is NOT a polynomial

anonymous
