This is not strictly true, because an absolute value, and hence the product of two absolute values can be zero.

It is, therefore true to say that the product of two absolute values is always non-negative.

An absolute value of a number is, by definition, non-negative. And by the definition of multiplication, the product of two non-negative numbers in non-negative.

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
