3600 is the smallest perfect square divisible by 8,9 and 10.

Work out the prime factorisations for each of the numbers 8, 9, 10:

8 = 23

9 = 32

10 = 2 x 5

So the perfect square must be a multiple of the lcm of 8, 9 & 10 = 23 x 32 x 5 to be divisible by all three numbers.

All perfect squares have even powers for all their primes (in their prime factorisation), so to make all the powers even the smallest multiplier of this is 2 x 5, giving 24 x 32 x 52 = 3600.

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
