You don't really need either. However if you need one as a requirement math literacy is the more correct option. It deals with the basic understanding of math while pure math is a series of complex mathematics courses that involve theoretical problems with no actually world uses outside of math(at the moment).

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

What is the difference between pure math and applied math?

Pure math is done as a kind of art, similar to music, without any concern about how the results may apply to science or daily life. The major concern is how the results improve on other math. Pure math is only concerned with improving upon itself. Pure Mathematicians are master in Mathematics. Applied math relates to other things. It is math used to help advance science, engineering, or other fields that are not related to just math. Applied mathematicians are well equiped in every related branches of science where mathematics is used thus they are "jack of all trades but master of none".

What is the difference in applied math and pure math?

Pure math is always correct w/o error. Pure math delves into the realm of theory and generality. For example, the equation 3x+5=72. This is asking you to solve a very specific equation where x has one value and is very restricted in R^1. A pure math problem would ask you to prove integration by parts for all R^n, and even then, only as an undergrad. Applied math, on the other hand cares more about the real world and modeling. You might be asked to generate a graph based off of data or solve a very specific differential equation. However, applied math can only improve with the advancement of pure math. I.E. pure mathematicians create the patterns, rules, and tools of the trade while applied mathematicians take them out of theory and into practice.
