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

What is the difference between prism and prymed?

I assume you mean between prism and pyramid. I suggest you look at some picture of prisms and pyramids, to get it perfectly clear. In any case, a prism has the same horizontal cross section from the bottom the top. On the other hand, the lines of a pyramid get together towards the top, to a point. If you take a horizontal cross section, at the base it will be larger, but the closer you get to the top, the smaller such a cross section will be.

How Do you make a cross section of a parallelogram from a pyramid?

It depends on the pyramid. If it is a square based pyramid, a horizontal plane will give a square cross section, a plane inclined by a rotation parallel to one of the base axes will give a rectangular cross section whereas a plane inclined by rotation along both basal axes will result in a parallelogram cross section. Not sure how you get a parallelogram from a pentagonal or hexagonal (etc) pyramid.
