A rate is a fraction that compares two quantities measured in different units. If the denominator of the fraction is 1 unit, the rate is called a unit rate.

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

Ratio that compares two quantities in different units?

A ratio of two quantities that are measured using different measurement units is a third physical quantity that inherits the dimensions from the parents. examples: ratio between space s (meter) and time t (second) is velocity v=s/t measured in meters/second ratio between energy E (Joule) and time t (seconds) is power (P) measured in Joules/second ratio between heat Q (Joule) and Temperature T (°K) is entropy S=Q/T measured in Joule/°K Different is the situation if we compare two measurements of the same time that are done in different measurement units. For example if we want to compare the distance between two cities measured in kilometers and the length of my bedroom measured in meters. In this case the result is an non dimensional ratio and to evaluate it the two measurements have to be converted in the same measurement unit. In the above example if the distance D between the cities is 100 km and the length of my bed room is L=8 meters the ratio has to be calculated as D/L (all in meters) = 100*1000/8=12500.
