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 calculate the missing length of a triangle?

It depends on what other information you have. Knowing the lengths of two sides of a triangle is not enough to calculate the third. You need to have some further information: and angle, the area, the length of an altitude or a median.

What is the length of the median to the hypotenuse of a right triangle if the hypotenuse is 12 inches in length?

The median to the hypotenuse of a right triangle that is 12 inches in length is 6 inches.

If x be the length of a median of an equilateral triangle then its area is?


What is the formula for equillateral triangle?

There are different formula for: Height, Area, Perimeter, Angle, Length of Median Radius of inscribed circle Perimeter of inscribed circle Area of inscribed circle etc.

Can the median of an equilateral triangle be longer than its altitude?

For the equilateral triangle in Euclidean space(i.e, the triangles you see in general) median is the same as its altitude. So, both are of equal length.

What is a median of a triangle?

A median of a triangle is a line from a vertex of the triangle to the midpoint of the side opposite that vertex.

Can a median triangle also consider as a base?

The median of a triangle cannot be considered as a base of that triangle.

What formula do you use to find the median in an isosceles triangle?

It is not possible to answer the question since it is hopelessly underspecified and does not provide enough information.what information about the triangle is known? All three side lengths, base angle and base side, base angle and leg, apex angle and base, apex angle and leg? These could influence the form of the the information about the triangle in terms of analytical geometry (coordinates of points and equations of lines) or in some other form?which median? The median from the apex or one of the isosceles medians?what aspect of the median is the formula supposed to give? Its length, equation?

Is median of a triangle bisect it's angle?

The median of a triangle bisects its side

What area property does the median of a triangle have?

Each median divides the area of a triangle into halves.

How do you find the perpendicular height of a isoceles triangle?

You can find it by using the Pythagorean theorem if you know the side and the base of triangle. In an isosceles triangle the median is also the altitude. The formula is: (The measure of the side length)^2 - (The measure of the one half of the base length )^2 = (The measure of the altitude)^2. Find the square root of the result that you'll have the measure of the altitude.

What ratio does a median divide two equilateral triangle?

A median divides any triangle in half.
