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

Standard Deviation

What do you mean when you say that the coefficient of variation has no units?

Suppose the mean of a sample is 1.72 metres, and the standard deviation of the sample is 3.44 metres. (Notice that the sample mean and the standard deviation will always have the same units.) Then the coefficient of variation will be 1.72 metres / 3.44 metres = 0.5. The units in the mean and standard deviation 'cancel out'-always.

Why there is need of standard units of measurement?

Why are units of measurement useful?

In statistics what shows how far away a measurement is from the mean or average of the set?

The "z-score" is derived by subtracting the population mean from the measurement and dividing by the population standard deviation. It measures how many standard deviations the measurement is above or below the mean. If the population mean and standard deviation are unknown the "t-distribution" can be used instead using the sample mean and sample deviation.
