Scale factor and perimeter are related because if the scale factor is 2, then the perimeter will be doubled. So whatever the scale factor is, that is how many times the perimeter will be enlarged.

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 is the perimeter and the size change factor related?

If you change the scale factor of a geometric figure by a factor "x", that is, keeping the new figure similar to the old one, the perimeter (which is also a linear measurement) will change by the SAME factor "x".Note that any area will change by a factor of x squared.
