### Find the GCF of 3x^2y and 15xy.

• A.

3xy^2

• B.

3x^2y

• C.

3xy

• D.

3x^2y^2

C. 3xy
Explanation
The GCF (Greatest Common Factor) is the largest number or term that divides evenly into two or more numbers or terms. In this case, the GCF of 3x^2y and 15xy is 3xy because it is the largest term that both 3x^2y and 15xy can be divided by without leaving a remainder.

• 10.

### Evaluate y^-5 if y = -2

• A.

32

• B.

-1/32

• C.

1/32

• D.

-32

B. -1/32
Explanation
To evaluate y^-5, we need to substitute the value of y, which is -2, into the expression. So, (-2)^-5 = 1/(-2)^5 = 1/(-32) = -1/32. Therefore, the correct answer is -1/32.

### Factor the expression 48s^3t^2 + 12st

• A.

4st

• B.

12st

• C.

12s^3t^2

• D.

4s^3t^2

B. 12st
Explanation
The given expression can be factored by finding the greatest common factor (GCF) of the terms. In this case, the GCF of 48s^3t^2 and 12st is 12st. By factoring out the GCF, we get 12st multiplied by the expression (4s^2t + 1), which cannot be simplified further. Therefore, the correct answer is 12st.

Rate this question:

• 12.

### What is a prime number?

A number with exactly 2 factors, 1 and itself.
Explanation
A prime number is a number that can only be divided by 1 and itself. It does not have any other factors. This means that prime numbers cannot be divided evenly by any other number except for 1 and itself. For example, 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, and 13 are all prime numbers because they can only be divided by 1 and themselves.

Rate this question:

• 13.

### What is a composite number?

A number that has more than 2 factors.
Explanation
A composite number is a number that has more than 2 factors. In other words, it is a number that can be divided evenly by at least one other number besides 1 and itself. For example, the number 6 is a composite number because it can be divided evenly by 1, 2, 3, and 6.

### Write the prime factorization of 300.

2^2 X 3 X 5^2
Explanation
The prime factorization of 300 is 2^2 x 3 x 5^2. This means that 300 can be expressed as the product of its prime factors raised to their respective powers. In this case, 2 is raised to the power of 2, 3 is raised to the power of 1, and 5 is raised to the power of 2.

### What is the quotient of (42/-6) (g^8/g^0)

• A.

7g^7

• B.

-7g^7

• C.

7g^8

• D.

-7g^8

D. -7g^8
Explanation
The given expression can be simplified by dividing the coefficients and subtracting the exponents of the variables. When dividing 42 by -6, the quotient is -7. When dividing g^8 by g^0, the quotient is g^(8-0) which simplifies to g^8. Therefore, the quotient of (42/-6) (g^8/g^0) is -7g^8.

### Write using scientific notation:  .000546

5.46 X 10^-4
Explanation
The given number, .000546, can be written in scientific notation as 5.46 x 10^-4. In scientific notation, the number is expressed as a decimal between 1 and 10 multiplied by a power of 10. In this case, the decimal is 5.46, and the power of 10 is -4. This means that the decimal point is moved 4 places to the left to obtain the original number.

### Write fraction in simplest form  42xyz^3/49xy

6z^3/7
Explanation
The given expression is a fraction with a numerator of 42xyz^3 and a denominator of 49xy. To simplify this fraction, we can cancel out the common factors in the numerator and denominator. Both the numerator and denominator have factors of xy, so we can cancel them out. This leaves us with 42z^3/49. The remaining fraction can be simplified further by dividing both the numerator and denominator by 7, resulting in the final answer of 6z^3/7.

### Is 243 divisible by 2,3,4,5,6,9,10?

3,9
Explanation
To determine if 243 is divisible by 2, we check if the last digit is even, which it is not. Therefore, 243 is not divisible by 2. To determine if 243 is divisible by 3, we sum the digits (2+4+3=9) and check if the result is divisible by 3, which it is. Therefore, 243 is divisible by 3. Since 243 is divisible by 3, it is also divisible by 9, as 9 is a factor of 3. Therefore, the correct answer is 3,9.

Rate this question:

• 20.

### Evaluate  n^0 + 2n^3p^0 - 3m^1 when m = 3, n = 2, p = -4.

• A.

8

• B.

-9

• C.

-73

• D.

0

A. 8
Explanation
To evaluate the expression, we substitute the given values for m, n, and p into the expression. Since any number raised to the power of 0 is 1, n^0 becomes 1. Similarly, p^0 is also 1. Therefore, the expression simplifies to 1 + 2(2^3)(1) - 3(3^1). Evaluating further, we get 1 + 2(8)(1) - 3(3) = 1 + 16 - 9 = 17 - 9 = 8. Therefore, the correct answer is 8.
