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 figure out the 0th term in a math sequence?

Calculate the constant difference: e.g. 21,17,13,9,5,1,... The difference is -4. Subtract that difference from the first term. 21 - -4 = 25 The 0th term is 25.

Is geometric sequence multiplying and dividing?

A geometric sequence (aka Geometric Progression or GP) is one where each term is the previous term multiplied by a constant (the common difference) As division is the inverse of multiplication, each term can also be said to be the previous term divided by the reciprocal of the constant. The sum Sn of n terms of a GP can be found by: Sn = a(1 - rⁿ)/(1 - r) = a(rⁿ - 1)/(r - 1) where: a is the first term r is the common difference n is the number of terms If the value of the common difference is between -1 and 1 (ie |r| < 1), then the sum of the GP will be finite since as n→ ∞ so rⁿ → 0, and will be: S = a/(1 - r)
