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 do you tell if a number is in scientific notation?

It is scientific notation if it is written in the form a*10b where 1 ≤ |a| < 10 and b is an integer. The vertical bars around a indicate its modulus: that is, the non-negative value of a.

How can you tell if something is not in scientific notation?

Scientific notation is a way of representing numbers, usually very large or very small, in the forma*10b where 1 &acirc;&permil;&curren; |a| < 10 is a decimal number and b is an integer (negative or positive).a is called the mantissa and b is called the exponent.So if |a| > 1or |a| &acirc;&permil;&yen; 10or the base for the exponent is not 10 (however, it may be written as E for example a*Eb)or b is not an integerthen the number is not in scientific notation.

Can scientific notation be used to tell distance?
