It depends on the angle of the plane of the cross section.

If it is parallel to the cube's face (or equivalently, two adjacent edges) the cross section will be a square congruent to the face. If the plane is parallel to just one edge (and so angled to a face), the cross section will be a rectangle which will have a constant width. Its length will increase, remain at a maximum level and then decrease. If neither, it will be a hexagon-triangle-hexagon-triangle-hexagon (triangles when passing through a vertex).

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
