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

Horizontal angle measured clockwise from a north base line describes?

It could describe the bearing, if expressed as a three digit number.


What is a true bearing?

The direction to an object from a point; expressed as a horizontal angle measured clockwise from true north


Is there a positive or a negative angle?

Yes. Angles may be measured from the direction of the positive horizontal axis and, clockwise is negative, anticlockwise is positive.


When is an angle positive?

An angle is positive when it is measured in a counter-clockwise direction. It is negative when it is measured in a clock-wise direction.


What is the Horizontal angle of a bearing clockwise from a standard direction called?

What does it mean when an angle is negative?

An angle is a measure of turn. the amount of turn is the magnitude, measured in degrees, and direction of turn can be clockwise or anti-clockwise. A positive angle turns in an anti-clockwise direction while a negative angle turns in a clockwise direction.


Why is 90 degrees not taken as the angle of reference?

If I understand the question correctly, the answer is that it is simply a case of convention. For bearings, for example, the reference line is North and angles are measured clockwise. In 2-D polar coordinates, the reference line is the horizontal (going East) and angles are measured in the anti-clockwise direction.

What is an azimuth?

The horizontal angular distance from a reference direction, usually the northern point of the horizon, to the point where a vertical circle through a celestial body intersects the horizon, usually measured clockwise. Sometimes the southern point is used as the reference direction, and the measurement is made clockwise through 360°.The horizontal angle of the observer's bearing in surveying, measured clockwise from a referent direction, as from the north, or from a referent celestial body, usually Polaris.The lateral deviation of a projectile or bomb.
