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

What does simplify mean in algebra?

In the most general sense, "simplify" means to replace an expression with an equivalent expression that is simpler. For example, 2x + 3x can be simplified as 5x (using the distributive property); x5x7 can be simplified as x12 (you may add exponents if the base is the same), etc.
