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

No. In order to be the sides of a right triangle, the square of one of the numbers must be the sum of the squares of the other two numbers. (the square of 9) + (the square of 10) = 181 but (the square of 15) = 225 .
