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

How do you find the length of each side of a square?

If you are given the area of the square, then the length of each side is the square root of the area. If you are given the length of the diagonal of a square, then the lenght of each side is equal to the length of the diagonal divided by the square root of 2. l=sqrt(a) l=d/[sqrt(2)] l=length of side, d=diagonal, a=area, sqrt means square root

What is the diagonal of 11 square inches?

As no shape has been given for the area it is impossible to given the length of the diagonal - the diagonal can be ANY length greater than 0 (assuming you can define what diagonal means for the shape). If you are referring to a square with an area of 11 square inches then: Using Pythagoras: diagonal² = side² + side² = 2 × side² → side² = diagonal² ÷ 2 area = side² = diagonal² ÷ 2 → diagonal² = 2 × area → diagonal = √(2 × area) = √(2 × 11 sq in) = √22 in ≈ 4.69 in If you mean an 11 inch square, ie a square with 11 inches along each side: Use Pythagoras: Diagonal² = √(2 × sidelength²) → diagonal = side_length × √2 → diagonal = 11 in × √2 ≈ 15.6 in


How do you find area of square if diagonal is given?

Using Pythagoras' theorem which says that the square on the hypotenuse (in this case the diagonal) is equal to the sum of the squares on the other two sides (which in the case of a square would be equal in length). so if the diagonal measured 10 units, the square on the diagonal would be 100 square units. And as this = 2*the squares on the other sides, the square on one side would be 100/2 = 50 square units. As a square has sides of equal length the square on one side is actually the area of the square. i.e. the area of a square with a diagonal of 10 units is 50 square units. or generically the area of a square with a diagonal of length 'x' = (x2)/2

The area of a square is 100 The length of its diagonal is approximately?

If the area of a square is 100, then its side length is 10. If we draw in a diagonal, then we know by the Pythagorean formula that the diagonal's length is sqrt(10^2 + 10^2) = sqrt(200) = 10*sqrt(2).The square root of 2 is approximately 1.414, so the diagonal's length is approximately 10*1.414 =14.14* The diagonal of any square is the side length times (sq rt 2).
