Simply by measuring it.

Or by drawing a circle with a radius of half the hypotenuse and having the vertex of the right angle as its centre and if the midpoint of the hypotenuse just touches the circle then this proves it.

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 many midpoints does a line segment contain?

it depends on how long or how many joining segments it has. normally one line segment contains only one midpoint. Unless it has a joining segment there is only one midpoint.
