If I'm correct in interpreting what you're asking, the intersection set is the set between two sets that contains the common elements (denoted by what looks almost like a large lowercase n). In other words, if:

set A = {1,2,3,7,8,9}

and set B = {2,3,6,8,9,10)

then the intersection set (A n B) = {2,3,8,9}.

Just take what the two sets have in common, and put them together (don't repeat the digits, just what's in common).

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

What is intersection of the set?

You normally do not have an intersection of only one set. The intersection of a set with itself is the set itself - a statement that adds little value. The intersection of two sets is the set which contains elements that are in each of the two sets.

Why empty set is a set?

The concept of closure: If A and B are sets the intersection of sets is a set. Then if the intersection of two sets is a set and that set could be empty but still a set. The same for union, a set A union set Null is a set by closure,and is the set A.

No, they do not.

What is the intersection set?
