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

Which statement is a correct interpretation of the vertical line test?

A-If there exists a vertical line that intersects the graph at exactly one point, the graph represents a function.B-If there exists a vertical line that intersects the graph at exactly one point, the graph does not represent a function. C-If there exists a vertical line that intersects the graph at more than one point, the graph represents a function.-DIf there exists a vertical line that intersects the graph at more than one point, the graph does not represent a function

What is the zero of a function and how does it relate to the functions graph?

A zero of a function is a point at which the value of the function is zero. If you graph the function, it is a point at which the graph touches the x-axis.


How do you graph the slope of a function?

For example, if the slope at a certain point is 1.5, you can draw a line that goes through the specified point, with that slope. The line would represent the slope at that point. If you want to graph the slope at ALL POINTS, take the derivative of the function, and graph the derivative. The derivative shows the slope of a function at all points.


How is the function differentiable in graph?

If the graph of the function is a continuous line then the function is differentiable. Also if the graph suddenly make a deviation at any point then the function is not differentiable at that point . The slope of a tangent at any point of the graph gives the derivative of the function at that point.

What is a Cartesian graph and what does it represent?

A cartesian graph is a graph in which y is some function of x. This is the 'normal' type in which you can give an x and y coordinate. Other types include polar in which modulus is a function of argument, but there are loads of varieties and forms.
