A chord is a straight line within a circle that divides the circle into two parts - these parts are called arcs.

The diameter is a chord that runs through the centre of the circle and divides the circle into two equal parts.

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

What is a straight line joining points on a circle?

A straight line joining points on a circle is called a "chord" of that circle. If the line happens to pass through the center of the circle, then it's a "diameter" of that circle. The question asked about "points" on a circle, so two points on the circumference of that circle are being considered. (No line can join more than two points of a circle.)

A tangent line is a line that intersects a circle at exactly two points?

No. A tangent touches the circle at exactly one point. A line that intersects a circle at exactly two points is a secant.

Is line of segment that connect the two points pasig th circle?

A line that connects two points on the circumference of a circle or on the line of an ellipse is called a "chord." The longest chord of a circle passes through the two points that are furthest apart, and it is caled a "diameter."


What are the two line segments that contains two points of the circle?

Regardless of where you mark two points on a circle, there's only one possible line segment between them. It's called a "chord" of the circle.
