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 tangent line?

tan A = (sin A) / (cos A) tan (A)= opposite side length/adjacent side length A is an angle measurement; amount of degrees or radians.
