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 can you prove a shape is a rhombus?

A rhombus has two sets of parrallell sides. If it has two set of parrellell sides, it is a rhombus.

Are adjacent sides of a rhombus always congruent?

Yes, it is one of the ways to prove a figure is a rhombus. If adjacent sides are congruent, then the figure is a rhombus.

What is the different beteew sqaures and rhombus?

A square is a rhombus with a right angle (90 degrees) at one corner.Note:That means that all four angles will be right angles, but in order to prove thatyour rhombus is a square, it's only necessary to prove that one angle is.

How do you prove the diagonal lines in a parallelogram is not a rhombus?

Because the diagonals of a rhombus intersect each other at 90 degrees whereas in a parallelogram they don't

Which formula would you use to prove that a triangle is a rhombus using distance or midpoint or Pythagorean or slope?

You would have a difficult time finding a formula to prove that statement, for two main reasons: 1). The statement is false. A triangle is never a rhombus. 2). Formulas can describe things, but they can't 'prove' things.

Which quadrilateral are you if you have four sides that are the same length and your opposite sides are parallel?

I am a rhombus. I don't need to prove that my opposite sides are parallel. If I'm a quadrilateral with four sides that are the same length, then I am definitely a rhombus.

What is a diamond called in maths?

A rhombus. A rhombus. A rhombus. A rhombus.

What is the different between a square and rhombus?

A rhombus is a tetragon (or quadrilateral, what ever you want to call it) has two sets of parallel lines, all which are the same length.A square fits the above description, therefore, a square is a rhombus. For a two dimentional object to be square, it must fit the descriptions for the rhombus as well as have 4 right angles.Another contributor conjectures:In order to prove a given rhombus a square, I thinkit's sufficient to show that it has one right angle.

Prove that a rhombus has congruent diagonals?

Since the diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular between them, then in one forth part of the rhombus they form a right triangle where hypotenuse is the side of the rhombus, the base and the height are one half part of its diagonals. Let's take a look at this right triangle.The base and the height lengths could be congruent if and only if the angles opposite to them have a measure of 45⁰, which is impossible to a rhombus because these angles have different measures as they are one half of the two adjacent angles of the rhombus (the diagonals of a rhombus bisect the vertex angles from where they are drawn), which also have different measures (their sum is 180⁰ ).Therefore, the diagonals of a rhombus are not congruent as their one half are not (the diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other).

When is a rhombus a rectagle?

A rhombus is a rectangle when one of its angles is a right angle.(Actually, a rectangle has 4 right angles. But you only have to prove that yourrhombus has one of them for sure, because then it turns out that it must havefour of them.)(Also, before you get all upset because a rhombus with right angles is actuallya square, we're aware of that too. Technically, a square is a special kind ofparallelogram, rhombus and rectangle too.)

What are the different names of rhombus?

A rhombus may be a square or just a rhombus (a rhombus is merely called a rhombus when there are no 90 degree angles).

What are not is efficient to prove that a quadrilateral is a parallelogram?

A parallelogram is a quadrilateral because it has 4 sides and all quadrilaterals have 4 sides such as a square, a rectangle, a rhombus ... etc
