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

More than that. You need to multiply the whole number, the farctions AND cross multiply the whole numbers and the fractions. Then add together all the answers.
