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

Can the amount of heat needed to change temperature be negative?

Mathematically, yes. Adding "negative heat" just means removing heat. Surely there's been a time in the past when you dropped a lump or two of negative heat into your drink. And sure enough ... once all that negative heat got into it, its temperature went down !


Is the change in enthalpy positive or negative for an exothermic reaction?

Negative. Heat is lost.


Can q be negative when using the specific heat formula?

A negative heat capacity would mean that putting heat into something would lower its temperature, so no, it's not possible.


Is exothermic negative or positive heat?

exothermic heat is negativeA different opinion:Heat itself cannot be negative. An exothermic reaction is a chemical reaction wherein a substance gives up heat. Since the substance is giving up energy in the form of heat, the enthalpy change of the substance is negative.
