Yes - the altitude of an equilateral triangle is perpendicular to the side chosen as the base and bisects that side and the opposite angle.

Also, the altitude of an isosceles triangle when measured from the third side (the side that is not equal to the other two sides) is a perpendicular bisector of the base and also bisects the opposite angle.

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

Is it possible for a segment to be a perpendicular bisector angle bisector median and altitude of a triangle?

Yes. If you have an isosceles triangle standing up on the unequal side, thenthe line segment from the top vertex perpendicular to the base is all of these.
