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

What is the intersection of a solid and a plane parallel to the base or bases of the solid?

It is a horizontal cross-section. Its shape will depend on the shape of the solid and its orientation.

A tapered prism.


What are the vertical and horizontal cross sections of a rectangular pyramid?

The vertical cross sections are trapezia or triangles. The horizontal cross sections are rectangles which are mathematically similar to the base.


What has a circular cross section when the cross section is taken parallel?

A cylinder has a circular cross section that is parallel to its base.


The figure formed by the intersection of a solid with a plane parallel to the base of the solid is congruent to the base if the solid is a?

The answer would be a right cylinder. A right cylinder is a cylinder that has a closed circular surface having two parallel bases on both the ends and whose elements are perpendicular to its base.


What are similarities between cone and pyramid?

(The cone I am referring to in the comparison below to a pyramid is not the mathematical cone, but a truncated half cone)Both cone and pyramid have a bottom surface (base) and a heightBoth have a volume of 1/3 the area of the base times the heightBoth have cross sections parallel to the base that are congruent to each other (all parallel sections are congruent to each other)Both have a "point" where the the area of the cross section vanishes to 0


What is the shape of the slice of cake cut parallel to a base of a cube?

It depends which orientation the cube has to the cake and which shape the cake is. However, assuming you meant a cube shaped cake was cut parallel to its base: It will be a cuboid.


How is a cylinder and triangular prism alike?

because the cylinder has a circular base and a triangular prism has a triangular base so they are both basic shapes.
