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

Meter unit for weight?

I think that you mean Metric unit. The base unit is the Gram. Prefixes are used to modify the unit. For instance, Kilogram, meaning 1000 Grams.

What is the metric unit measuring mass?

All masses are measured in kilograms, the prefixes show the multiple or fraction of the kilogram. Because the base unit has the prefix kilo, all prefixes are based on the gram, but the base unit is the kilogram.

What are the proper units of mass in the metric system?

The unit of mass in the metric system is the gram. You can adjust that with the metric prefixes. A kilogram = 1000 grams, a milligram = 0,001 gram. and so on.

What is standard metric unit of volume?

L (Liters). Since its metric, prefixes such as centi-, milli-, deca-, kilo-, etc. denote certain powers of this unit. For example. mL, is commonly used.

The gram is the base unit which prefixes are added (such as milligram or kilogram), but the SI system uses the kilogram as the base unit for mass.

What is a metric time system?

Metric time is the measure of time interval using the metric system, which defines the second as the base unit of time, and multiple and submultiple units formed with metric prefixes, such as kiloseconds and milliseconds.

How do the prefixes in the metric system?

In the metric systems, unlike other systems, there is only one unit for each measurement; e.g the only unit for length is the metre. For lengths much longer, or shorter, lengths we use prefixes to indicate the fraction or multiple of the metre. For short lengths the fractions are thousandths, millionths, billionths; for which the prefixes are milli-, micro-, and nano-. For longer lengths, the multiples are thousands, millions, and billions; for which the prefixes are kilo-, mega-, and giga-. The prefixes indicate the fraction,or the multiple of the base unit.

What is the metric term for mass?

The base unit of mass is the kilogram, although the prefixes are, for historical reasons, based on the gram.

Metric measurement for volume?

The SI unit for volume is cubic metres, because the unit is cubed the normal prefixes can become confusing. So, it is more common to use litres, the normal prefixes apply to litres.
