A solid cube is easy. You measure its mass and its volume. The volume of a cube is the length of a side cubed. And then density is the mass divided by the volume.

The question is more difficult for a box where you need to measure the volume of the material that makes up the box. You need to measure the outside dimensions of the box and calculate the volume of the box - INCLUDING the hollow space inside it. Then you measure the inside dimensions and so calculate the volume of the space. The difference between these two is the volume of [the material of] the box. Again, the mass divided by the volume gives the density.

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
