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

How do you measure square yards in a 15x20 room?

I assume that the 15x20 is already in yards. That says that the room is a square that is 15 yards on one set of parallel sides and 20 yards on the other set of parallel sides. To find the square yards of the room, you simply multiply 15 yards and 20 yards. 15 yards x 20 yards = 300 square yards.

How long does it take to drive 251 miles if going 75 mph?

To do this, you can set up a proportion. What you know is that it takes 60 minutes to drive 75 miles. You want to find how many hours it takes to drive 251 miles. Just set up a proportion like this: 1/75 = x/251. With this, you'll be finding the total number of hours. Cross multiply to solve for x. It would take 3.346 hours, or about 3 hours and 21 minutes.

The perimeter of a square with the length of 15 feet is equal to the perimeter of a regular pentagon What is the length of one side of the pentagon in yards?

A regular pentagon has a perimeter of 5s. We set this equal to 15, and solve for s, and convert to yards.5s = 15s = 33 feet converted to yards is 3/3 = 1 yard.

How do you convert a proportion into a percent?

You can make the proportion into a percent by dividing the numerator by the denominator and then moving the decimal point two spaces over to the right. That's your percent. Also if the denominator is a factor of 100, you can set it to a hundred. Example: 2/5=40/100. So the percent is 40%, the numerator over 100.

How long would it take to travel 1400 miles at 1800 miles pe hour?

Simply set up a proportion, then solve the proportion by using proportional reasoning. 1,800 miles/1 hour=1,400 miles/x hours. Cross multiply. 1,800x=1,400 Divide by 1,800 on each side. x=.77777777777777777 hours Now set up another proportion to find out how many second and minutes. 3,600/1 hour=x seconds/.777777777777777 hours Cross Multiply. x=2,800 seconds. Divide that number by 60 to find how many minutes since there are 60 seconds in a minute. It would take 46.6666666666666666666 minutes (or 2,800 seconds) to travel 1,400 miles at 1,800 miles per hour. Hope I helped! Maxwell

16300 ft equal how many miles?

1 mile = 5280 ft. So set up a proportion and you will get: 1 mile/5280 ft = x miles/ 16300 ft. Divide 16300 by 5280 and you should get approx. 0.309 miles (to the correct number of significant digits).

How do you convert sq.ft to cubit yards?

A cubit is an ancient measure which ranges from 18 to 22 inches. The modern conversion is set at 18 inches or 1.5 feet, so that 1 foot = 1/1.5 cubits. Also, 1 foot = 1/3 yards. Therefore, 1 square foot = (1/1.5) cubit * (1/3) yards =2/9 cubit yards.

What is the math definition of convert?
