A line extends forever into space and a line segment is a segment or part of a line, so a line is longer than a line segment.

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

Is a ray line segment or line longer?

Let's think of a line segment as a finite set of points. Along those lines, (pun intended) think of a ray and a line as infinite sets of points. Then we think of longer in terms of the size of the set. So for example, a 2 inch line segment would be longer than a 1 inch line segment because we can have more points in the set which is made of the two inch segment. The ray and the line are the same size since they both can be viewed as sets containing an infinite number of points. The line segment being a finite set is smaller than the other two.
