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 the area and perimeter of the area of a figure change when it's dimensions change?

The answer depends entirely on how the dimensions change. It is possible to change the dimensions without changing the perimeter. It is also possible to change the dimensions without changing the area. (And it is possible to change the area without changing the perimeter.)

How do you figure the perimeter of a triangle?

Sum of dimensions of all sides

What is used to measure a perimeter?

to measure the perimeter we need a figure with boundaries and all the sides with dimensions

How does Doubling the side lengths of a figure affect its perimeter?

The perimeter is doubled.

How do you figure out the area if you know the perimeter?

You can't. The perimeter doesn't tell the area. There are an infinite number of shapes with different dimensions and different areas that all have the same perimeter.

A rectangle has a perimeter of 44 the dimensions of the rectangle are scaled by a factor of 1.5 so what will be the perimeter of the resulting figure?

44 x 1.5 = 66.

What happens to the perimeter of a rectangle when its length and width are quadrupled?

When the linear dimensions of a plane figure are quadrupled, its perimeter is quadrupled, and its area is multiplied by 42 = 16 .

How does the perimeter of a figure change if the dimensions are changed from yards o feet?

The absolute value of the perimeter doesn't change, only the unit value which increases by a factor of 3.

What meaning of area?

Area is like the perimeter, only you multiply the dimensions, the definition of Area is the inside of a 2-d Figure

What is the distance around closed figure?

The distance round a closed figure is the perimeter.

How do you make a figure with an area of 5 square units and a perimeter of 12 units?

A figure that has an area of 5 units [base x height] has the obvious dimensions 1 and 5 since 5 is a prime number. If the figure is a rectangle then the dimensions can be : length= 5 height= 1. Area= 5 x1= 5cm^2 Perimeter= 5+5+1+1=12cm

How does proportional change in the dimensions affect the area of a figure?

If the new linear dimensions are k times the old dimensions, then the new area is k2 times the old area.
