Best Answer

Rectangles are not squares.

The reason to this is because squares must have sides of equal lengths.

Rectangles are quadrilaterals with sides that join to make 90 degree angles, but are not restricted to having the same length.

Therefore "all squares are rectangles", but rectangles cannot be squares.

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
