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

Similarity.

What postulate or theorem verifies the congruence of triangles?

sssThere are five methods for proving the congruence of triangles. In SSS, you prove that all three sides of two triangles are congruent to each other. In SAS, if two sides of the triangles and the angle between them are congruent, then the triangles are congruent. In ASA, if two angles of the triangles and the side between them are congruent, then the triangles are congruent. In AAS, if two angles and one of the non-included sides of two triangles are congruent, then the triangles are congruent. In HL, which only applies to right triangles, if the hypotenuse and one leg of the two triangles are congruent, then the triangles are congruent.


What are three ways that you can prove that triangles are congruent?

If triangles have the corresponding sides congruent then they are congruent. SSS If two triangles have two sides and an included angle congruent then they are congruent. SAS If two triangles have two angles and an included side congruent then they are congruent. ASA SSA doesn't work.


Why congruence is a special case of similarity?

Term similar is more wide than term congruent. For example: if you say that two triangles are congruent that automatically means that they are similar, but if you say that some two triangles are similar it doesn't have to mean that they are congruent.

What divides a parallelogram into two congruent triangles?

The term for the line that divides them is a diagonal.


In two triangles have a congruent angle and two congruent angle and two congruent sides then the triangles are guaranteed to be congruent?

Yes, if two triangles have two congruent angles and two congruent sides then the triangles are guaranteed to be congruent. They only need two angles and one side congruent or two sides and one angle in order to be congruent.


What is CPCT-?

If two triangles are congruent then their matching parts are equal and if corresponding parts of two triangles are equal then triangles are congruent


If two triangles have a congruent angle and two congruent sides then are the triangles guaranteed to be congruent?

Only if the congruent angle is the angle between the two congruent sides (SAS postulate).


Are two triangles are congruent if they have the same base?

No. All corresponding sides and angles have to be congruent for the triangles to be congruent.
