A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

How many faces edges and vertices does a cone have?

A cone has one face - its base - and one edge but no vertices. Vertices only occur at the meeting of two straight surfaces.

Is a cone acute or obtuse?

A cone is a 3 dimensional shape with a circular base that tapers vertically into an acute or obtuse apex

What is the shape of ballpen?

It is generally very irregular and depends on the make of the ball pen. Some are hexagonal prisms with circular tapers at one end.

You can use tapers to stretch them up but you can't wear them....for obvious reasons.

They are just tapers that react to a black light. Kind of like UV paint that glows.

Why does a candle flame tapers at the top and bottom?

A candle structure includes a candle body and a plurality of wicks. The candle body is configured with a top and bottom surface, and an outside wall that tapers substantially inward from the top surface to the bottom surface. The plurality of wicks is configured to supply air through the gaps of standing wicks that protrude from the top surface of the candle structure. The plurality of wicks extends above the body and the wicks are aligned longitudinally. The plurality of wicks is arranged radially to taper outward toward the bottom surface of the candle body.

Why do high heels have a smaller surface area?

This is not necessarily true. Only when the heal tapers will its surface area be smaller. The surface area is that which is in contact with the ground. Platform shoes are likely to have the same surface area as normal shoes, and stilettos will have a very tapered heel and therefore small surface area and great pressure per square unit)

Is thick on one end and tapers to a thin edge is called?

If the object is of the same width and tapers from thick to thin, it may be a wedge.

What is the base and height of a cone?

A cone is an n-dimensional geometric shape that tapers smoothly from a base (usually flat and circular) to a point called the apex or vertex.Formally, it is the solid figure formed by the locus of all straight line segments that join the apex to the base. The term "cone" is sometimes used to refer to the surface or the lateral surface of this solid figure (the lateral surface of a cone is equal to the surface minus the base).The axis of a cone is the straight line (if any), passing through the apex, about which the base has a rotational symmetry.In common usage in elementary geometry, cones are assumed to be right circular, where right means that the axis passes through the centre of the base (suitably defined) at right angles to its plane, and circular means that the base is a circle. Contrasted with right cones are oblique cones, in which the axis does not pass perpendicularly through the centre of the base.[1] In general, however, the base may be any shape, and the apex may lie anywhere (though it is often assumed that the base is bounded and has finite area, and that the apex lies outside the plane of the base). For example, a pyramid is technically a cone with a polygonal base.

How long until you can change your tapers into plugs?

Tapers aren't jewelry.. you have them in for about 10-15 minutes then change it with the plugs but don't take to long to change them. Tapers aren't made to stay in your ear for long or it will mess your ears up.
