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

How do you figure the perimeter of a polygon?

The perimeter of a polygon is the distance around the outside of the polygon. A polygon is 2-dimensional; however, perimeter is 1-dimensional and is measured in linear units.To find the perimeter of a polygon, take the sum of the length of each side.


How do you figure the perimeter of a polygon with an area of 72?

I can not tell you. It is because i do not know what shape the polygon is. You must tell me that first.


What is primeter?

The distance around a figure. For a polygon, add the lengths of all of its sides to get the perimeter.


How do you find the perimeter of a pentagon?

A pentagon, which is a 5-sided figure, will have a perimeter equal to the sum of the lengths of all the sides. This will be true for any polygon; the perimeter of any polygon is the sum of the lengths of all the sides. If the pentagon is a regular pentagon, then the perimeter will be 5 times the length of one of the sides. For any regular polygon, the perimeter will be the length of one side times the number of sides in that polygon.


When finding the perimeter of a figure on a grid why do you not count the spaces inside the grid?

That's because "perimeter" means the distance around something - not the spaces inside. If you count squares inside a figure, you are finding the AREA, not the PERIMETER.


The perimeter of a polygon is like the circumference of a circle?

Yes it is because the perimeter describe the outside of the figure, when also the circumference describe the outside of the circle.


What is the length of each side of a polygon if the perimeter is 48 cm?

You can't solve the question. If it is a regular polygon of n sides, then the length of each side would be 48cm/n. However, the only givens are that the figure is a polygon and that the perimeter is 48cm.


What is the difference between perimeter and area of polygon?

perimeter is the measure around the figure; area is the measure within the figure formula: perimeter: length+length+width+width=perimeter (for square or rectangle) area: length times width= area ( for square or rectangle)


What is the the difference between a polygon and perimeter?

A polygon is a closed plane figure that is bound by at least three straight sides. Perimeter is the total lengths of the sides of a shape. They are different because a polygon refers to the shape, and perimeter refers to the distance around a shape. The perimeter refers to the path traveled around the outside of some area. All polygons have a perimeter. Shapes that are not polygons also have a perimeter -- such as circles, semicircles, and the shapes of most letters.


How do you find the perimeter of a plane figure?

If the figure is a polygon ... with sides made of straight line segments ... then the perimeter is the sum of the lengths of all the sides. If part or all of the figure's boundary consists of curves, the perimeter is still the distance all around the figure, but you may need special formulas to find the lengths of the curved sections.


What is the sum of the lengths of the sides of a polygon?

The sum of the lengths of the sides of a polygon is called the perimeter.


What is the difference between finding the perimeter of a polygon and finding the area of a polygon?

Finding the perimeter of a polygon is finding how far it is in total along all the edges of the polygon; whereas finding the area of a polygon is finding how much space the polygon covers. The perimeter of a polygon forms the boundary around the area of the polygon.
