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

Which regular polygons will fit together to tile a flat surface?

Triangles, squares and hexagons. That is if they all have to be the same. If you use different regular polygons, you can tile a flat surface with triangles and 12-sides or with squares and 8-sides for example.

No. Four regular polygons cannot be combined for this purpose.

Is it possible to tile a floor with copies of a regular polygon?

Yes, but only with some polygons.

Will a regular polygon tile?

There are only three regular polygons which with tile. These a re a triangle, quadrilateral (square) and hexagon.This is because if there are n tiles meeting at a point, then the sum of the angles around that point must be 360 degrees - otherwise the polygons will overlap. The only regular polygons with interior angles that are factors of 360 are the ones mentioned above.
