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 the least and maximum number of lines obtainable with 7 points?

depends on the position of the points if points are collinear, we have just only one line, the minimum number. If points are in different position (if any of the two points are not collinear) we have 21 lines (7C2), the maximum number of lines.

What is the definition of non collinear lines?

The definition of a non-collinear line is that this is a line on which points do not lie on one line. The opposite of this is a collinear point. Collinear points refer to three points that do fall on a straight line.

Do collinear point lie on parellel lines?

No. Collinear means on the same line. So collinear points all must lie on the same line. Not parallel lines.
