Best Answer

you can't, because the Pythagorean theorem is for right triangles and the triangles formed by the diagonal of a parallelogram are not right triangles.

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

The pythagorean theorem is a+b=c. So, a+b equals two of the three sides. Using your knowledge of what those two sides are will help you with figuring out the third side, but technically, the pythagorean theorem is used only for right triangles. a and b are the two straight sides and c is the diagonal side. your welcome. 8th grader
