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

Can 12 over 18 be reduced?

Yes, 12/18 can be reduced : (divide both by 2) it turns into 6/9 then (divide both by 3) into 2/3. Reduction is the division of both numerator and denominator by the same term (one of the 'factors', integer constituents, of both numbers). For even numbers, divide both by 2 until one or both become odd, then attempt higher numerical factors (3, 5, 7, etc.). 12 = 2x2x3 and 18 = 2x3x3 / common factors are one 2 and one 3. Dividing numerator and denominator by 6 will yield the reduced value 2/3.

What is the factors of a whole numbers are the numbers that divide evenly into it?

That's a little redundant, since all factors are whole numbers. Factors are the numbers that multiply together to get a product. In the sentence 4 x 3 = 12, 4 and 3 are factors of 12; two whole number factors of 12.
