It means that either the distance is measured from the finish-line, or else the object

is moving backwards, because the distance is shrinking as time goes on.

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 does a downward sloping diagonal line mean in a velocity vs time graph?

This means your velocity is decreasing with time, or in other words, the object is slowing down.


What does an upward sloping diagonal line mean in a velocity vs time graph?

It means acceleration.


The graph of a car's speedometer was straight line sloping downward. the car was?

Slowing down or decelerating


What does the downward sloping line in a speed graph mean?

If you are analyzing speed with respect to time, then you are decelerating.

Plot the graph to show ball thrown vertically upward and comes downward ignoring air resistence?

If you want the graph to show the acceleration of the ball against time, then the graph is a horizontal line. If you want the graph to show the velocity of the ball against time, then the graph is a straight line sloping downward. If you want the graph to show the height of the ball against time, then the graph is a parabola that opens downward.


What does an upward sloping diagonal line mean in position vs time graph?

It means that either the distance is measured from the starting-line and the object is moving forward, or else the distance is measured from the finish-line and the object is moving backwards, because the distance is growing as time goes on. If the upward sloping diagonal line is straight, it means the speed is constant. (not velocity)


What does a curved line pointing downward on a position versus time graph indicate?

That means the speed (the slope of the position-time graph) is decreasing.


What is the downward trend on a graph?

The downward tend on a graph is called "decay".


What will the acceleration-time graph show if the speed is decelerating?

On a graph of acceleration vs. time, during deceleration the line is below zero. On a graph of speed vs. time, during deceleration the line has a negative slope (sloping downward from left to right).


What is a sloping straight line on a distance time graph?

An upward sloping straight line indicates that the object being studied is moving away from the origin and that the component of its velocity in the radial direction is a constant. A downward sloping line indicates it is moving towards the origin. However, neither line says anything about the transverse component of its motion.


How does slope compare with acceleration due to gravity?

Acceleration due to gravity (free fall) is a downward (negative) motion. On a position-time graph, the slope representing free fall will be a downward curve. On a velocity-time graph, the slope representing free fall will be a straight line with a negative (downward) slope.
