No. Real numbers are equivalence classes of cauchy sequences of rational numbers, which in turn are equivalence classes of pairs of integers (or whole numbers). Examples of real numbers that are not rational and therefore not integer are sqrt(2) and pi. Examples of real numbers that are rational but not integer are 1/2 and 13/17.

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

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Does every point on the real number line correspond to a rational number?

No. There are several real numbers that are not rational (e.g. pi). However, every rational number is also a real number. In general, whole numbers/natural numbers is a subset of the integers (i.e. every whole number is an integer), the integers is a subset of the rationals, the rationals are a subset of the real numbers. I think the real numbers are a subset of the complex numbers, but I'm not 100% positive on that.
