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 the ratio of the adjacent and hypotenuse sides of a right triangle?

That's the cosine of the angle to which the 'adjacent' side is adjacent.


What ratio relates the length of the leg opposite the angle in question to the length of the leg adjacent to the angle?

This ratio is the tangent of the angle.If the triangle is a right angled triangle and the angle in question is not the right angle, then it is the tangent of the angle in question.


How do you work out a right angle triangle where you know the opposite side and the adjacent side to get the opposite angle?

The ratio of the opposite side over the adjacent side is called the tangent.Expressing the fraction (opposite/adjacent) as a decimal, you can find the angle by looking in a table of values for the tangents of various angles.
