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

If a system of equations is independent how many soultions will it have?

A system of equations may have any amount of solutions. If the equations are linear, the system will have either no solution, one solution, or an infinite number of solutions. If the equations are linear AND there are as many equations as variables, AND they are independent, the system will have exactly one solution.
