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

Raising a number to the second power means you are squaring the number, multiplying it by itself. 2 squared= 2*2=4 3 squared=3*3=9


Why is raising the number to the second power called squaring the number?

That's because you are multiplying it by itself. So "two, squared' means the same as 'two times two', and 'three, squared' means the same as 'three times three'. Multiplying a number by itself is exactly the same process of finding the area of a square who's dimensions are the number in question. Therefore multiplying a number by itself is known as squaring. For the same reason of raising a number to the third power is known as cubing. (Because its the same process you would use to find the volume of a cube.)
