Every pair of negative numbers gives a positive multiple. Positive numbers do not affect the sign any further, so you can throw out pairs of numbers from 169. In the end, there will be just the one negative number left.

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

The answer is an imaginary number, because of the negative under the square root. The same number multiplied together will always be a positive number.
