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

What is the definition of a uniform cross-section?

A Uniform Cross Section is the cross section of the solid, parallel to base, such that the resulting figure has the same shape and size as that of the base of the figure.More about Uniform Cross SectionSolids like pyramids and cones have slant heights and hence do not have uniform cross section.Examples of Uniform Cross SectionThe uniform cross section of the given prism is a square.The uniform cross section of the given cylinder is a circle.In short to say, uniform cross-section are when you dissect a 3D solid and you get all same shape (uniform).

When is a face of a three-dimensional figure also a cross-section of that same figure?

When the 3-d shape is a prism and the cross section is in a plane at right angles to the length of the prism.

What is a meant by cross section?

Imagine that you wanted to cut a globe or a sphere exactly in half. When you looked at the cut you would see an exact circle on both pieces. This area would be the cross-section. You could work out the area of this cross-section by using A = Pi X r squared. But be careful. Don't assume that the cross sectional area is the same no matter where you cut. If you cut the globe at some other point, say near to the edge, the cross-section (the circular area that you would see) would be a lot smaller. You would come across a uniform cross-section if you cut a cable. No matter where you cut the cable the cross-section should be roughly the same. Also cross section doesn't have to be circular. The cross-section you get really depends on the original shape you are dealing with. If you cut a cube in half, you would get a square cross-section. So I guess you could imagine the term as applying to cutting across (hence cross) something to reveal 2 sections (hence section).
