Sure. If some of the items on the list are positive and some are

negative, then their average can be positive, negative, or zero.

But if all of them are positive, then their average must be more

than zero. Remember that the average is always greater than the

least item on the list, and less than the greatest one.

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 a body have nonzero average speed but have zero average velocity give example?

An object moving in a circular path at constant speed will have a non-zero average speed and zero average velocity since velocity is a vector parameter,

Can there be zero displacement and nonzero average velocity?

It is not possible because the average velocity is equal to the displacement in a given time interval, ie: V = (displacement) / (time interval) As the zero displacement average speed will also be zero.
