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

iscoceles triangle! =)

What is the difference between and angle bisector and a perpendicular bisector?

An angle bisector bisects an angle. A perpendicular bisector bisects a side.

How are perpendicular bisectors and angle bisectors the same?

In general, they are not. In an isosceles triangle, the perpendicular bisector of the base is the same as the bisector of the angle opposite the base. But the other two perp bisectors are not the same as the angle bisectors. Only in an equilateral triangle is each perp bisector the same as the angle bisector of the angle opposite.

If a point is equidistant from the two sides of an angle then it is?

What is the difference between a perpendicular bisector and a angle bisector?

A perpendicular bisector is a line that divides a given line segment into halves, and is perpendicular to the line segment. An angle bisector is a line that bisects a given angle.

Can the angle bisector of a triangle also be the perpendicular bisector?

Yes. The bisector of one angle of a triangle is the perpendicular bisector of theopposite side if the bisected angle is the vertex angle of an isosceles triangle,or any angle of an equilateral triangle.
