to add to that

a vertex must be connected to at least 3 edges to be 3d, an edge is always connected to 2 vertexes, so the closest the two can ever be is

vetexes x 3 = edges x 2,

but when working with any platonic solid you can follow this:

vertexes x (faces / vertexes) x [edges on one side] = edges x 2


vertexes x [faces meeting at one vertex] = edges x 2

when working with any other polyhedron

[vertexes with x amount of faces] x (x) + [vertexes with y amount of faces] x (y) ...{and so on} = edges x 2

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
