Providing that it is a regular 6 sided hexagon then it will have 3 pairs of opposite parallel sides.

Though an irregular hexagon (shaped as the outline of an L) can have 2 sets of three parallel sides.

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 many pairs of parallel sides do a pentagon and a hexagon have?

a pentagon has 5 sides total, and no parallel sides. A hexagon has 6 sides, so it has 3 parallel sides. any shape with an odd number of equal sides has 0 parallel sides, no matter how many sides it has. every shape with an even number of equal sides will have the # of sides divided by 2 (#/2) of parallel sides.

p = a. In a regular polygon with an even number of sides, every side is parallel to the one opposite it. So all a sides are parallel.

What are non- parallel sides called?

There is no specific name. For example, if you number the sides of a regular hexagon sequentially from 1 to 6, then sides 1 and 3 are not parallel but there is no specific name for that pair. In the context of the hexagon they do not meet - even if they do so way outside the hexagon. If they do meet up in the context of the shape, then they will be adjacent or intersecting sides.
