The equation for the perimeter is: 2(L + W) = 88m ie L + W = 44m

So that L = 44 - W

Then area = L*W = 480 m2

is equivalents to (44 - W)*W = 480

Or W2 - 44W + 480 = 0

which gives W = 20 or W = 24

if W = 20 then L = 24 and if W = 24 the L = 20

However, since conventionally, L>W, L = 24m, W = 20m

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
