Inversely proportional means that one variable goes up while the other goes down. Directly proportional means that both variables increase or decrease at the same time. ex: The volume of a gas at constant pressure is inversely proportional to gas pressure, thus this means that as pressure increases, the volume of the gas will decrease. ex: The volume of a fixed amount of gas is directly proportional to absolute pressure, thus this means that when you heat a gas the volume also increases.

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
