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 hypotenuse of a triangle that has no right angles?

If it has no right angles, it is not a right triangle and therefore you cannot name a hypotenuse of that triangle. Which implies you cannot find that side's measure.

What triangle has angles that measure 46 degrees 90 degrees and 44 degrees?

A right triangle.

How do you know if a triangle is a right triangle using the pythagorean therom?

We know that a right triangle is a triangle having a right angle, where the side opposite the right angle is the hypotenuse, and the perpendicular sides are the legs of the right triangle. The Pythagorean theorem gives the relationship between the lengths of the sides of a right triangles. In the case where you know only the measure lengths of the sides of a triangle, you need to test these measures. If one of the sides of the triangle has a square measure equal to the sum of the square measures of two other sides, then this side is called the hypotenuse and opposite to this side is a 90 degree angle, which is a right angle. So, you can say that this triangle is a right triangle. Pythagorean triple are very helpful to determine a right triangle, such as: (3, 4, 5), (5,12,13), (8, 15, 17), (7, 24, 25), and (20, 21, 29).

If a triangle has no obtuse angle then it is a right triangle?

It could be a right triangle if it has a right angle (90 degrees). If it does not have a right angle, then it is an acute triangle.

One acute angle of a right triangle measures 20 what is the measure of the other acute angle?
