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

How can you determine whether a counting number is a composite number?

Start looking for factors; you already know that 1 is a factor, and that the number itself is a second factor (unless the number is 1). As soon as you find a factor that is neither 1 nor the number itself, the number is composite. If you find exactly two factors, the number is prime. If the number has only one factor, the number is 1, which is neither prime nor composite.
