What does the expression two ππ plus three ππ consist of? a) Two terms of one factor. b) Two terms of two factors. c) Two terms of three factors. d) Three terms of one factor.
00:00:07.280 --> 00:00:22.720
Or e) Three terms of two factors.
00:00:23.960 --> 00:00:29.080
Before you move on, it seems like it would be helpful to define the words term and factor.
00:00:30.160 --> 00:00:38.680
A term is a single number or variable or numbers and variables multiplied together.
00:00:39.360 --> 00:00:45.520
And a factor are what we multiply together to get another value.
00:00:46.200 --> 00:00:52.680
Two ππ are numbers and variables being multiplied together.
00:00:53.520 --> 00:00:55.040
Thatβs a term.
00:00:55.800 --> 00:01:05.360
Three ππ are numbers and variables multiplied together, which is another term.
00:01:06.000 --> 00:01:10.400
Weβll eliminate the two answer choices that say three terms.
00:01:11.200 --> 00:01:12.640
And whatβs happening within these terms.
00:01:13.480 --> 00:01:24.200
Another way we could say this is what is being multiplied together to get two ππ, two times π times π.
00:01:24.800 --> 00:01:29.600
And that means two ππ is made up of three factors.
00:01:30.200 --> 00:01:43.800
Three ππ is made up of three times π times π, which is again three factors, two terms of three factors each.
00:01:44.600 --> 00:01:51.080
For us, thatβs answer choice c, two terms of three factors.
