Normally, you would do this by finding a pair of numbers whose product is equal to the product of the first term's coefficient multiplied by the last term, and whose sum is equal to the coefficient of the second term. Those numbers could then be used to break the expression down further. In other words, you are looking for two numbers, we'll call them A and B, in which (A + B) = -4 and AB = 5. Unfortunately, there are no such numbers, so that expression can not be factored.

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
