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

The major difference between the equation for a hyperbola and for an ellipse is the operation performed?

Both the ellipse and the hyperbola has an x squared and a y squared term. In the ellipse, they are both positive. In the hyperbola, one of them is negative. Example: 3x^2 /36 + 5y^2 / 64 = 1 (ellipse) 3x^2 / 36 - 5y^2 / 64 = 1 (hyperbola)

What is the major difference between an eclipse and a hyperbola?

The difference, major or not, is that an eclipse and a hyperbola are not related, at all. You might have meant to say "Ellipse". In that case, an ellipse is a closed line shape of which the left and right bouts are symmetrical and the top and bottom bouts are also symmetrical. A hyperbola can never close, and only its left and right parts are symmetrical.
