There is no specific term for such polynomials. They may be referred to as are polynomials with only purely complex roots.

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 do you simplify ratio 38 over 52?

You look for a common factor between the two numbers; then you divide both numbers by this factor.

How do you completely factor x to the fourth power minus ninety one?

You want to factor (x4 -91) First notice that the factors of 91 are 1, 7, 13, and 91. If we try them all , we see that x4 -91 is a prime polynomial. Even though the polynomial is prime, that is cannot be factored over the set of rational numbers, it is factorable over the set of irrational numbers. x4 - 91 = (x2)2 - (√91)2 = (x2 - √91)(x2 + √91) = [x2 - (√√91)2](x2 + √91) = (x - √√91)(x + √√91)(x2 + √91)
