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 the area and perimeter of the area of a figure change when it's dimensions change?

The answer depends entirely on how the dimensions change. It is possible to change the dimensions without changing the perimeter. It is also possible to change the dimensions without changing the area. (And it is possible to change the area without changing the perimeter.)

How does proportional change in the dimensions affect the perimeter of a figure?

If you are asking how the perimeter of an object changes if the whole object is proportionally changed: The perimeter changes by the same factor as the change in proportion of the whole object. For example: given a square that is 2 units by 2 units, changed by a factor of four, the new size would be 8 units by 8 units. The original perimeter was 2+2+2+2=8. The new perimeter is 8+8+8+8=32. So, multiplying the original perimeter, 8, by the factor of proportional change, 4, we get 8x4=32. For any object, multiply the original perimeter by the factor of proportional change to arrive at the new perimeter.

When you double the dimensions of a figure how does this affect the area of the figure?

If you were to double both the width and the length, then the area would quadruple. It will be multiplied by a factor of four.I learned this in my 7th grade math class. (:
