This can be an extension to the proof that there are infinitely many prime numbers.

If there are infinitely many prime numbers, then there are also infinitely many PRODUCTS of prime numbers. Those numbers that are the product of 2 or more prime numbers are not prime numbers.

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 connection between Euclid and prime numbers?

Euclid (c. 300 BC) was one of the first to prove that there are infinitely many prime numbers. His proof was essentially to assume that there were a finite number of prime numbers, and arrive at a contradiction. Thus, there must be infinitely many prime numbers. Specifically, he supposed that if there were a finite number of prime numbers, then if one were to multiply all those prime numbers together and add 1, it would result in a number that was not divisible by any of the (finite number of) prime numbers, thus would itself be a prime number larger than the largest prime number in the assumed list - a contradiction.
