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

If the length of the longest side of a right triangle is 3 more than the length of the shorter side the length of the hypotenuse is 3 more than the length of the longer side find length of each side?

9,3,6 The dimensions given above would not be suitable for a right angled triangle which presumably the question is asking about. The dimensions suitable for a right angled triangle in the question are: 9, 12, 15.


What are some examples of scalen triangles?

A scalene triangle is a triangle that does not have a right angle in it (i.e. not a right angled triangle) and does not have two (or three) sides with the same length (i.e. not an isosceles triangle or an equilateral triangle). An example is a triangle with sides of length 4cm, 5cm and 6cm.


What ratio relates the length of the leg opposite the angle in question to the length of the leg adjacent to the angle?

This ratio is the tangent of the angle.If the triangle is a right angled triangle and the angle in question is not the right angle, then it is the tangent of the angle in question.


How would you work out the perpendicular height of a triangle if they give you the area?

I think you need at least one other piece of information. A length of a side? An angle? Is it a right angled triangle?


How do you calculate the length of the hypotenuse?

The hypotenuse is the longest side in a right-angled triangle.You can calculate this in different ways depending on what pieces of information you have.If you have the lengths of the two shorter sides, you can use Pythagoras.Or if you have a side and an angle then you may be required to use Trigonometry.

5 cm


What is the length of the longest side of a right angled triangle if the two shorter sides are 6cm and 8cm?

Using Pythagoras' theorem the longest side which is the hypotenuse works out as 10cm


Is a hypotenuse short?

It may be of any length but it is always the longest side in a right-angled triangle.

Can you determine the type of a triangle by just knowing it's sides?

Yes. The three sides uniquely specify the triangle. If all three sides are equal it is equilateral. If only two are equal it is isosceles. If none are equal it is scalene. If the sum of the squares of the two shorter lengths is equal to the square of the longest length, it is a right angled triangle. If the sum of the squares on the two shorter sides is less than the square on the longest, it is an obtuse angled triangle. Otherwise it is an acute triangle.


How do you find the length of the third side of a right angled triangle?

a2 +b2 = c2 (c is the longest side/or hypotenuse)


What is the length of a hypotenuse?

A hypotenuse is the longest side of a right angled triangle. The length of a hypotenuse can be found using the Pythagorean Theorem. This states that in a right angled triangle, the square of the length of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides. This means that to find the length of the hypotenuse, you need to know the lengths of the other two sides.


What is Circumradius of a right angled triangle?

The circumradius of a right angled triangle would be equal to half the length of its hypotenuse.


What does the sine of an angle tell us?

In a right-angled triangle, the sine of one of the smaller angles is the ratio of the length of the opposite side to the length of the longest side.


What does a right angled scalene triangle look like?

the side is a right angle which is 90 degrees and the length is shorter thand the right angle,then connect the last line to the length


What is The Difference Between an equilateral triangle And A Right Angled Triangle?

An equilateral triangle has all sides the same length and all its angles are 60dgrees. A right angled triangle is just a triangle with a right angle.


Does a right-angled triangle have any equal sides?

A right-angled triangle can have equal sides, but does not have to. A right-angled triangle with two equal sides CANNOT be an equilateral triangle. A right-angled triangle cannot be an equilateral triangle.Divide a square along the diagonal, and you are left with two right-angled triangles with two sides of equal length.
