A trivial truth is a term used for an implication that is true for all cases, regardless of what implies it.

That is, a statement in the form "If P then Q" is trivially true when Q is always true, regardless of P.


the statement "If x < -3, then x^2+1 > 0" is trivially true, because no matter the truth outcome of x<-3 (which could be true or false depending on the value of x), x^2+1 will always be greater than zero, as x^2 will always be greater than or equal to zero.

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
