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 rational number is one that can be expressed as a ratio of two integers: thus x = p/q where q is not zero. An irrational number cannot be expressed in such a way.

One consequence is that a rational number, in decimal form, is either a terminating decimal or an infinite recurring decimal. An irrational number has an infinite decimal from that is non-repeating.


Examples of rational numbers: 2, -3/4, -3.756, 18.23464646.. (recurring)

Examples of Irrational Numbers: sqrt(2), pi, phi (the Golden Ratio), e (Euler's number) as well as their negatives.
