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 relation between quartile deviation and standard deviation?

Strictly speaking, none. A quartile deviation is a quick and easy method to get a measure of the spread which takes account of only some of the data. The standard deviation is a detailed measure which uses all the data. Also, because the standard deviation uses all the observations it can be unduly influenced by any outliers in the data. On the other hand, because the quartile deviation ignores the smallest 25% and the largest 25% of of the observations, there are no outliers.
