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

How do you solve the proportion of something?

There cannot be a "proportion of something": proportion is a relationship between two things, and how you solve it depends on whether they (or their transformations) are in direct proportion or inverse proportion.

If a triangle has an area 16 and base of 4 what is its height of the triangle?

Remember that in a triangle: (Base x Height) / 2 = Area In your question: (4 x Height) / 2 = 16 Now just solve for Height: (4 x Height) = 16 x 2 = 32 Height = 32 / 4 = 8 So your answer is 8 units.

An isosceles triangle has a base of 12 cm and legs measuring 18 cm How wide is the base of a similar triangle with legs measuring 22 cm?

14.667 It would be proportional to the base of the first triangle. Find it by setting up a proportion: 18/22 = 12/x Cross multiply and solve for x. 18x = 264 x = about 14.67 cm

Height of an isosceles triangle?

If you know the length of the sides, you can use Pythagoras' Theorem to calculate the height. Use half the base for one of the shorter sides, and either of the two identical sides of the triangle for the hypothenuse. Solve for the other one of the shorter sides (the height).

How do you find the height of a triangle with a base of 16meters and the side that is not the height 18meters?

If it is a right triangle, use the Pythagorean theorem. If it is iscossolese or scalene, draw line down middle, use pythagorean theorem to solve for missing side.

What is the formula used to solve for area of a triangle?
