In this tutorial, follow along as a monomial is written in factored form. This is information may come in handy if you ever need to simplify an expression involving monomials. Better check it out!
You can't do algebra without working with variables, but variables can be confusing. If you've ever wondered what variables are, then this tutorial is for you!
Polynomials are those expressions that have variables raised to all sorts of powers and multiplied by all types of numbers. When you work with polynomials you need to know a bit of vocabulary, and one of the words you need to feel comfortable with is 'term'. So check out this tutorial, where you'll learn exactly what a 'term' in a polynomial is all about.
If you learn about algebra, then you'll see monomials everywhere! Watch this tutorial and learn what makes a monomial, and what does not.
If the only factors a number are 1 and itself, then that number is prime. A number that is not prime is called composite. Learn about prime and composite numbers by watching this tutorial!
Factoring out the greatest common factor of a polynomial can be an important part of simplifying an expression. In this tutorial, you get step-by-step instructions on how to identify and factor out the greatest common factor.
To find the greatest common factor (GCF) between monomials, take each monomial and write it's prime factorization. Then, identify the factors common to each monomial and multiply those common factors together. Bam! The GCF! To see an example worked out, check out this tutorial!
