A whole number is a number that cannot be broken down into parts and is not continuous. It represents a single discrete object. Whole numbers include the positive integers or natural numbers and zero.

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

What is a whole number that is not a counting number?

The answer will depend on the exact definition of both "whole number" and "counting number" as both terms are potentially open to different interpretations. For example, a counting number could be defined as all the positive integers, e.g. 1,2,3,4 etc... A whole number could be defined as all the non negative integers, e.g. 0,1,2,3,4 etc.. In which case the answer would be 0. However, it could be argued that counting numbers include 0, making the above answer invalid. Equally it could be argued that whole numbers include the negative integers, in which case the answer would include any negative whole number.
