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

Why are the diagonals of a parallelogram not congruent?

If you look ate the parallelogram you'll see two kinds of triangles. Two that have longer diagonal and bigger angle, and two sides of parallelogram. Then, you have two triangles that have two sides of parallelogram, shorter diagonal and smaller angle. This triangles obviously have two sides that are the same (sides of parallelogram). If this two triangles had been congruent diagonals would have been congruent too, since these triangles would have been congruent. But this is not true unless angles of parallelogram are the same, therefore diagonals cannot be the same length. Of course, there are parallelograms that have same angles, and those are square and rectangle, which do have the same angles. I hope I made this more clear, and I'm sorry for my bad English.
