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 many faces on a quadrilateral pyramid?

It has 5 faces. The "quadrilateral" part of the name describes the shape of the base of the pyramid. A pyramid has 1 face for every side of the base plus an extra one for the base. Thus a quadrilateral pyramid has a quadrilateral or 4 sided shape for the base and so has 4 + 1 = 5 faces.

How many faces does a a pyramid have?

Mathematically, a pyramid is a 3-dimensional shape formed by a polygonal base with n sides, and n triangular faces meeting at an apex - which is a point not in the plane of the base. It therefore has n+1 faces, where n is the number of sides of the polgonal base. Common pyramids have a triangular base (4 faces) or square base (5 faces).

What geometric shape has 1 square face and 4 triangular faces?

The geometric shape that has 1 square face and 4 triangular faces is a pyramid. A pyramid also has five vertices and eight edges. The square acts as the base for the shape on which it sits.

How many faces does a pentagonal prism have?

It has seven faces: five sides and two ends (base and top).A prism is the body formed by the translation (movement along a line - in this case a straight line) of a shape. There will be with two bases and as many faces as the base has sides.Therefore, a Pentagonal Prism has 7 faces; it has 5 side faces and it has 1 'base' on the top and one 'base' on the bottom. 5+1+1=7
