Depending on the inclination of the plane used for the cross-section, it could be a square, rectangle, trapezium, triangle.

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

Does a pyramid have eight edges?

Depends on the pyramid. A pyramid with a square (or quadrilateral) base would indeed have 8 edges, but a pyramid can have any other polygon as a base.Depends on the pyramid.

What is a meant by cross section?

Imagine that you wanted to cut a globe or a sphere exactly in half. When you looked at the cut you would see an exact circle on both pieces. This area would be the cross-section. You could work out the area of this cross-section by using A = Pi X r squared. But be careful. Don't assume that the cross sectional area is the same no matter where you cut. If you cut the globe at some other point, say near to the edge, the cross-section (the circular area that you would see) would be a lot smaller. You would come across a uniform cross-section if you cut a cable. No matter where you cut the cable the cross-section should be roughly the same. Also cross section doesn't have to be circular. The cross-section you get really depends on the original shape you are dealing with. If you cut a cube in half, you would get a square cross-section. So I guess you could imagine the term as applying to cutting across (hence cross) something to reveal 2 sections (hence section).
