In order to do any consecutive integer problem, you should think of the numbers as x's. Here's what I did to solve this problem (and what you can do to solve future problems):

(x) + (x +1) + (x +2) + (x + 3) = 290

4x + 6 = 290

4x = 284

x = 71, therefore the four numbers are 71, 72 (71 + 1), 73 (71 + 2), and 74 (71 + 3).

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
