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 descending geometric sequence?

A geometric sequence is a sequence where each term is a constant multiple of the preceding term. This constant multiplying factor is called the common ratio and may have any real value. If the common ratio is greater than 0 but less than 1 then this produces a descending geometric sequence. EXAMPLE : Consider the sequence : 12, 6, 3, 1.5, 0.75, 0.375,...... Each term is half the preceding term. The common ratio is therefore ½ The sequence can be written 12, 12(½), 12(½)2, 12(½)3, 12(½)4, 12(½)5,.....

Is a geometric progression a quadratic sequence?

A geometric sequence is : a•r^n while a quadratic sequence is a• n^2 + b•n + c So the answer is no, unless we are talking about an infinite sequence of zeros which strictly speaking is both a geometric and a quadratic sequence.
