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 find if a table is direct variation or inverse variation?

Suppose the two variables are denoted by X and Y. If Y is a constant multiple of X, that is Y = c*X, then the variation is direct. If the value of X*Y is a constant, that is Y = c/X, then the variation in inverse.
