Use Pythagoras' theorem...

a2 + b2 = c2

where c is the length of the hypotenuse in a right-angled triangle.

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 find the hypotenuse of triangle?

If it has no right angles, it is not a right triangle and therefore you cannot name a hypotenuse of that triangle. Which implies you cannot find that side's measure.

When to use Pythagoras?

In a right angle triangle,pythagoras theorem can be used if (1)the 2 sides are equal and their measure is less than the hypotenuse (or) (2)the 2 sides are different and their measure is less than the hypotenuse.

How do you measure a hypotenuse angle if you know the other two angles?

The hypotenuse is a side, not an angle. However, if you mean the angle across from the hypotenuse, it is always 90 degrees, or pi/2 radians because hypotenuses only exist in right triangles.
