The basic equation for the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle is A squared plus B squared equals C squared. Where A and B are the two non hypotenuse sides and C is the hypotenuse. To find other lengths and angles of a triangle various functions in the branch of mathematics known as trigonometry is used.

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

Whats the length of the altitude of a triangle or a quadrilateral?

The length depends on the triangle or the quadrilateral. Normally the figure is shown with one side horizontal, which is called the base. In a triangle, the altitude is the the line from the third vertex down to the base (or the extended base) and which is perpendicular to the base. In a quadrilateral, it is similar, but is the longer of the two lines from the two vertices that are not on the base itself. maximum length of a line perpendicular to the base that
