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 theta of a triangle?

When placed next to any angle on a triangle, the theta symbol (θ) represents that missing angle.

How do you find theta for right triangle?

You can use your trigonometric functions (sine, cosine, and tangent).

What is sin in math terms?

when you have a right triangle and one of the two non-right angles is theta, sin(theta) is the side of the triangle opposite theta (the side not touching theta) divided by the side that does not touch the right angle

How do you find the hypotenuse of a right triangle using sine?

The sine of an angle theta that is part of a right triangle, not the right angle, is the opposite side divided by the hypotenuse. As a result, you could determine the hypotenuse by dividing the opposite side by the sine (theta)...sine (theta) = opposite/hypotenusehypotenuse = opposite/sine (theta)...Except that this won't work when sine (theta) is zero, which it is when theta is a multiple of pi. In this case, of course, the right triangle degrades to a straight line, and the hypotenuse, so to speak, is the same as the adjacent side.

What is sine theta?

The sine theta of an angle (in a right triangle) is the side opposite of the angle divided by the hypotenuse.

How do you find the formula for are of triangle?

the formula for the arc of a triangle is the arc length is equal to the angle times the radius. s=arc length theta=angle made y length of the arc lenth r=radius s=theta times radius

Is Sin theta can also be mentioned as?

In a Right Triangle SINE Theta is equal to the: (Length of opposite side) / (Length of Hypotenuse).

If tan Theta equals 2 with Theta in Quadrant 3 find cot Theta?

Cotan(theta) is the reciprocal of the tan(theta). So, cot(theta) = 1/2.

What is the definition of a tangent function?

Tangent (theta) is defined as sine (theta) divided by cosine (theta). In a right triangle, it is also defined as opposite (Y) divided by adjacent (X).

How do you find tan-theta when sin-theta equals -0.5736 and cos-theta is greater than 0?


What ratio correctly describes the cosine function?

The cosine of theta is adjacent over hypotenuse, given a right triangle, theta not being the 90 degree angle, adjacent not being the hypotenuse, and theta being the angle between adjacent and hypotenuse. In a unit triangle, i.e. in a unit circle circumscribed with radius one, and theta and the center of the circle at the origin, cosine of theta is X.

What does sine theta mean?

Theta is just a Greek letter used to denote measurement of angle. Sine is a trigonometric function, i.e., the ratio of the side opposite to the angle theta to the hypotenuse of the triangle. So Sine theta means the value of sine function for angle theta, where theta is any angle.
