The two ways are:

  • empirical: measure it
  • theoretical: calculate it (using formulae).

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

How do you find a scale factor in math?

To find the scale factors of two objects, you need to compare the ratios of things like their sizes, areas, volumes, and length. For example, if one is given a volume of 7 for a shape, and a second shape has a volume of 14, you have to compare the volume ratio of these two shapes to find the scale factor. This scale factor is 1 to 2, or the volume of the second shape is twice the first one. Scale factors are useful for scale drawings.

How do you find the volume of a three-dimensional irregular shape?

If it is a small shape that is denser than a convenient fluid and insoluble in it and also does not react with it then the displacement method is simplest. Fill a graduated cylinder with the fluid, measure the volume of the fluid. Then gently insert the shape and measure the apparent volume of the fluid. The difference between the two volume readings is the volume of the shape. If the shape is less dense than the fluid you have to make one change. You need to find a dense insoluble object. Measure the volume of the fluid with the dense object immersed in it. Then measure the volume when the dense object and the shape are joined together and submerged. The difference between the two measures is the volume of the shape. This method will not work with soluble shapes unless you can find a fluid that it is not soluble in. Similarly, you cannot use a fluid that will react. So measuring the volume of a lump of sugar or a lump of sodium using water are non-starters. Finally, the method will not work if the irregular shape is huge.

What 2 characteristics are needed for a substance to be a solid?

A solid has a definite shape and volume A liquid has the shape of the container and a definite volume A gas has the shape and volume of the container so the two characteristics for the substance to be solid are: a definite shape a definite volume

How do you do volume of a irregular shape that is two dimensional?

If a shape is two dimensional it has NO volume - volume is an attribute of THREE dimensional shapes.If you meant the AREA of an irregular two dimensional shape, then divided it up into areas which are not irregular and so you can calculates them, and sum the areas of these non-irregular shapes.If you meant the volume of an irregular THREE dimensional shape, then a similar process can be followed by dividing it up into three dimensional shapes you can can calculate the volume of and summing them, though if it is an irregular object that you are physically holding, then you can find its volume by finding the increase in volume of a liquid (In a regular container) when the object is submerged into that liquid.
