The associative property of a binary operator denoted by ~ states that form any three numbers a, b and c,

(a ~ b) ~ c = a ~ (b ~ c) and so we can write either as a ~ b ~ c without ambiguity.

The associative property of means that you can change the grouping of the expression and still have the same result.

Addition and multiplication of numbers are associative, subtraction and division are not.

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
