First of all, every number is a factor - of its multiples.


There is no general way to distinguish between prime and composite numbers. At one level, though, there are some simple ways. If the number is not 2, but ends in 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8 then it is a composite, If the number is not 5 but ends in 0 or 5 it is composite. If the number is not 3 but the sum of all the digits of a number is 3 or divisible by 3, then it is composite. There are moderately complicated divisibility rules for 7 and 11. But this method does not identify all composite numbers and there is no guaranteed method.

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

You can notice a number to be prime or composite by doing its factors. If it has more than 2 factors then it is a composite one.
