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

A figure is transformed in the plane such that no point maps to itself. What type of transformation?

It could be a reflection with the mirror line outside the figure; it could be a rotation with the centre of rotation outside the figure; or it could be a translation.

What is the volume of rhombus formula?

pi r squared * * * * * That is such a rubbish answer! A rhombus is a plane figure and, as with any plane figure it is 2 dimensional. That means it cannot have a volume.

What is the measure of the solid line angle depicted by the following figure?

What is the altitude of a equilateral triangle if one side is 6 cm?

An equilateral triangle has all 3 sides the same length. To find the height of a triangle, draw a line from the tip top of the triangle to the middle of the base. You should see 2 triangles now inside your original triangle. We can use Pythagoras' theorem to figure out the length of this line, the height. This theorem will only work with right triangles, which (luckily) we have just created by drawing the height line inside the triangle. The P. theorem says that side squared + side squared = hypotenuse squared. Our hypotenuse is the left or right side of the original triangle, 6 cm. The line we drew down the center is one side, and HALF of the base is the other side for the P. theorem, since the height line of the triangle cuts the base exactly in half, and creates 2 right angles at the base. This line also creates 2 right triangles inside. This is why we can use the P. theorem to help us! But we'll only be using 1 of the inside triangles. (Even though, both are identical) side squared + side squared = hyp. squared (3 cm) squared + ??? squared = 6 squared 9 + ??? squared = 36 ??? squared = 36 - 9 ??? squared = 27 ??? = sqrt(27) We can simplify sqrt(27), or you can use a calculator to approximate it. sqrt(27) = sqrt(9*3) = 3 * sqrt(3)

How do you find the area of a rectangle with only the width? the length twice the width or 3 times. If so, then just multiply that amount, then figure like normal.
