Find the distance of the point from the centre of the circle. If the distance is

- less than that radius then the point is inside the circle,

- equal to the radius then the point is on the circle, and

- greater than that radius then the point is outside the circle.

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

Is one square inch larger than one circular inch?

yes, a circle has the smallest surface area of anything. just imagine a circle inside a square so that there is 1 point on each side of the square touching a point on the circle. The corners of the square are the only thing the circle does not have, while the circle does not have anything the square does not have. Square is bigger
