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

Finding the scale factor for two polygons is simple to do. All you have to do is find the angles in a rectangle.

How do you find the scale factor for a rectangle?

How do you enlarge a rectangle by 2.5 with scale factor?

If you assume that 2.5 refers to the scale factor, you multiply each linear measurement by 2.5. This includes the width, the length, and - if you want to use it to construct your new rectangle - the diagonals. It also happens to include the perimeter, but you probably won't need that to construct the rectangle.

How do you find the ratio of the perimeter of two similar rectangles?

The ratio of the perimeters is equal to the scale factor. If rectangle #1 has sides L and W, then the perimeter is 2*L1 + 2*W1 = 2*(L1 + W1).If rectangle # 2 is similar to #1 and sides are scaled by a factor S, so that L2 = S*L1 and W2 = S*W1, the perimeter of rectangle #2 is 2*(L2 + W2)= 2*(S*L1 + S*W1) = S*2*(L1 + W1) = S*(perimeter of rectangle #1).

What happens to the area of a figure when the scale of the figure changes?

To find the new area, you have to multiply the original area by the square of the scale change. For example, you have a rectangle with adjacent sides of 3 and 4. Another rectangle has the same dimensions but with triple the scale. The original rectangle's area is 12. Multiply that by 9, which is the square of the new scale, and you get an area of 108. That matches up with the area of the new rectangle, which has adjacent sides of 12 and 9.

What do you get when you enlarge a rectangle with a 1cm side and a 3cm bottom by sf2?

When enlarging each length is multiplied by the scale factor, so with a scale factor of 2 each length is multiplied by 2, to give a new rectangle 1cm x 2 = 2cm by 2 x 3cm = 6cm.
