If you want to multiply the monomial by the polynomial, yes. In that case, you have to multiply the monomial by every term of the polynomial. For example:

a (b + c + d) = ab + ac + ad

More generally, when you multiply together two polynomials, you have to multiply each term in one polynomial by each term of the other polynomial; for example:

(a + b)(c + d) = ac + ad + bc + bd

All this can be derived from the distributive property (just apply the distributive property repeatedly).

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 3 plus square root 7 is a monomial?

A monomial is a special case of a polynomial which contains only one term. To identify a particular term of a polynomial (in x), we use the name associated with the power of x contained in a term. 3 + √7 is a monomial of zero degree which has a special name such as a constant polynomial. Let's rewrite it as, 3x0 + (√2)x0 = (3 + √7)x0 , a monomial with an irrational coefficient = (3 + √7)(1) = 3 + √7.
