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

Why do you have a monitor and what are the uses?

A monitor is the "gateway" to your computer. It is the output of your computer. E.g. a mathematical formula has an input, an output and an algorithm. The keyboard & mouse is the input, the computer is the algorithm, and the monitor is the output.
