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

When you see a picture of a right pyramid with a regular polygon base how do you identify its height and its slant height?

Its vertical height is that of the perpendicular from the centre of the base to the apex; the slant height is the length of the sloping "corner" between two faces. The height of a regular pyramid is the vertical distance from the center of base to the top and is usually shown with a line perpendicular to the base, denoted with a right angle to the base. The slant height it the height of the lateral face (the triangles) from the edge of the base to the top of the pyramid. It is the height of the triangle, not the pyramid itself. The slant height will also be the hypotenuse of a right angle formed from the altitude of the pyramid and the distance from the center of the base to the edge.

The slant height of a pyramid and the altitude of a pyramid are not the same thing?

True, because the slant height and the altitude, or height, of the pyramid form one leg and the hypotenuse of a triangle withing the pyramid, and the hypotenuse of a triangle is always the longest side- it is not possible for the hypotenuse to be equal to the legs of a right triangle. (It is a right triangle because an altitude is perpendicular to the base of a pyramid.)

How do you find the slant height of a pyramid with a rectangular base?

If you make a line from the top of the pyramid to the center of the base, you have the height of the pyramid. This meets at the midsegment of a line going across the base. Since the height of a pyramid is perpendicular with the base, get this: the height, a line of 1/2 the length of the base, and the slant height form a right triangle. So, you can use the Pythagorean Theorem! For example, if the base length is 6 and the height of the pyramid is 4, then you can plug them into the Pythagorean Theorem (a squared + b squared = c squared, a and b being the legs of a right triangle and c being the hypotenuse). 1/2 the length of the base would be 6 divided by 2=3. 3 squared + 4 squared = slant height squared. 9+16=slant height squared. 25= slant height squared. Slant height=5 units. You're welcome!
