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 does the slope represent on a distance versus time graph?


What does the slope of a distance-versus-time graph show you about the motion of an object?

The slope of a distance versus time graph provides the instantaneous speed of an object. If data from this graph is then used to construct a speed versus time graph, the slope of that graph would provide the instantaneous acceleration.

What type of graph is used for acceleration?

Speed-Versus-Time, Distance-Versus-Time.

What does the slope of the curve on a distance-versus-time graph represent?


What does a curved line pointing downward on a position versus time graph indicate?

That means the speed (the slope of the position-time graph) is decreasing.

Can a distance versus time graph ever show a horizontal line?

if the speed is zero then the distance versus time line will be horizontal

What does the stope of a distance versus-time graph show about the motion of an object?


How does a graph showing speed differ from a graph showing acceleration?

Speed can be shown on a graph of position versus time, and acceleration can be shown on a graph of speed versus time.

What does the y-intercept in a velocity vs time graph represent?

initial velocity maybe maybe speed ____ of a distance versus time graph is speed

On a graph of distance versus time what is constant speed shown by?

If the line formed by the graph is straight, the speed is constant. A horizontal line would show the object as stationary.

Does a straight diagonal line on a distance versus time graph indicate constant speed?

Yes. Speed is the rate at which distance changes over time. In calculus terms v = dx/dt, or the slope of the distance vs. time graph. If the slope of the distance vs. time graph is a straight line, the speed is constant.

What can be shown on a graph of velocity versus time?

Note that the graph can't show velocity, only speed. The slope of the graph is the magnitude of acceleration. The area under the graph is distance covered.
