Please same the three terms.

It's time to upgrade. Did you notice I gave you one of the answers in the previous post?

Yes but this a matching. Im not sure which one it matches to.

Is it number 4?
tkhunny
  • tkhunny
Algebraic Expression is #4. That is what we have been given. Move on. Given a standard algebraic expression like the one we have, a term is any of those three things separated by + or - (including the sign that separates it in the front.) Can you identify the THREE terms?

Just keeping score. Algebraic Expression is #4 This leaves us with the easier matching problem. 1. x Constant 2. 3 Degree 3. 1 Coefficient 5. 2 Variable

1. x >> Degree 2. 3 >> Coefficient 3. 1 >> Variable 5. 2 >> Constant Is that right?
tkhunny
  • tkhunny
No, you need to answer my question. Please identify the three terms in the given algebraic expression.
tkhunny
  • tkhunny
Okay, I'll give you Coefficient is 3. There is also a coefficient of -4, but that's not on the list. Anything in a TERM that is not part of the variable is the coefficient. Algebraic Expression is #4 Coefficient is #2 Now, it's easier... 1. x Constant 3. 1 Degree 5. 2 Variable

1. x >> Degree?

3x2- 4x+ 1, better written as\[3x^2- 4x+ 1\]

is a quadratic equation. Why? Because the highest power of x is 2. In other words, that's x squared. Note how this quadratic equation features descending powers of x: \[x^2,x^1,x^0.\] The constant numbers in front of each of these powers of x are called "coefficients." Because the \[x^{2}\]

Seriously, you MUST be able to identify a "term". You WILL be required to know this on an exam.
mathmale
  • mathmale
Absolutely. Your quadratic expression, 3x^2−4x+1 has three distinct parts. Count them. Each is separated from the others by a + or - sign. Each part is called a "term" of the expression. A quadratic expression such as this one has three terms (altho there are exceptions). Enough force-feeding of facts. Please, LeeAnn, look over what TKHunny and I have shared with you and then ask some clarifying questions.
