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 use comparing mixed fractions?

Assuming the fractions are "normalized" (the fractional part is less than 1): First compare the integer part. If the integer part is the same, you need to compare the fractions. If the denominator of the fractions is different, you have to convert to a common denominator. The simplest way to find a common denominator is to multiply both denominators (i.e., you don't need the LEAST common denominator - any common denominator will do).

Why you consider improper fractions right if in fractions numerator is less than or equal to denominator?
