Yes, for example a 4'x6' and 8'x3' rectangle have the same square units because 4'x6'=24 square feet and 8'x3'=24 square feet, while the perimeter of the 4'x6' rectangle is 20' the perimeter of the 8'x3' rectangle is 22'

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
