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

Does a diagonal of a rhombus have to bisect two angles of the rhombus?


What is the area of a rhombus with diagonals of 12 and 5?

The diagonals bisect each other. Since that is true then the area of the rhombus is the sum of the two triangles. Half of one diagonal times the other diagonal.2(6x5)/2 or 6x5=30

What quadrilaterals have diagonals that bisect?

A square has two diagonals that bisect each other at 90 degrees

What is an line drawn between two vertices which are not next to each other?

A diagonal.

What is meant by diagonals bisect each other?

By bisecting , we mean cutting into half. So , when the diagonals bisect each other , they then are actually dividing each other into two equal halves. For example , like in quadilaterals , (perhaps parallelograms) , like square,rectangle,rhombus , etc.

A diagonal.

Do kites have two pairs of equal sides?

Normally yes and their diagonals bisect each other at 90 degrees.

How many diagonals are in a quadrilateral?

A diagonal line of a polygon is a line that joins any two vertices not already joined by a side.A polygon with n sides has n(n-3)/2 diagonals→ a quadrilateral with 4 sides has 4(4-3)/2 = 4 × 1 ÷ 2 = 2 diagonalQuadrilaterals include:Squares, rectangles, rhombuses, parallelograms, kites, trapezia (trapezoids).The diagonals of a quadrilateral divide the quadrilateral into 4 triangles. depending upon the quadrilateral some, or all of the triangles may be congruent.The properties of the diagonals of each quadrilateral are:square: equal and bisect each other at 90°; the triangles formed are all congruentrectangle: equal and bisect each other but not at 90°; the triangles formed are all congruentrhombus: not equal but bisect each other at 90°; the triangles formed are all congruentparallelogram: not equal but do bisect each other, but not at 90°; the triangles formed are congruent in (opposite) pairskite: perpendicular and the longer diagonal bisects the shorter diagonal; the triangles formed are congruent in (adjacent) pairstrapezium (trapezoid): only of equal length and bisect each other if it is an isosceles trapezium (trapezoid) and the triangles formed are congruent in (opposite) pairs; otherwise they are of differing lengths and just intersect each others and the triangles formed are non-congruent.

If any two chords are perpendicular do they bisect each other?

Only when one of them is the circle's diameter which is the circle's largest chord.

What is a line segment connecting two vertices of a polygon is called a what?

If two vertices are adjacent to each other, the line segment connecting the two is known as an edge. If they are non-adjacent it is known as a diagonal.

Why can a square be called a rectangle?

because it has two pairs of congruent sides, the diagonals are equal in length, and the diagonals bisect each other.

What is the Similarity between a rectangle and a parallelogram?

In a parallelogram:the opposite sides are parallel and congruent,the opposite angles are congruent,the consecutive angles are supplementary,the diagonals bisect each other, anda diagonal divides it into two congruent be simple both sides are congruent and both sides are parallel
