There's no such thing as one perpendicular line. "Perpendicular" tells the relationship

between two lines, or between a line and a plane.

Two lines are perpendicular if they form a 90-degree angle where they cross.

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
