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 many lines of symmetry does a polygon has?

A polygon need not have any lines of symmetry. The maximum number of lines of symmetry is attained if the polygon is regular; and this is the number of sides (or vertices) of the polygon. If a regular polygon has an even number of sides, then the lines of symmetry are those joining opposite vertices, and those joining the mid-points of opposite sides. If the polygon has an odd number of sides/vertices, the lines of symmetry are those joining each vertex to the mid-point of the opposite side.


What is the number of lines of symmetry in a regular polygon to the number of sides?

They have the same value.


How many lines of symmetry does a plolygon have?

It depends on how many sides that it has and whether of not it is regular (all the lines of the polygon are of equal length if it is a regular polygon). For regular polygons, the number of symmetry lines is the number of sides if number of sides is an odd number. Otherwise, the number of symmetry lines is double the number of sides. A square has 4 sides and 8 symmetry lines; a triangle has 3 sides and 3 symmetry lines.
