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

What is the difference between an arithmetic sequence and a geometric sequence?

In an arithmetic sequence the same number (positive or negative) is added to each term to get to the next term.In a geometric sequence the same number (positive or negative) is multiplied into each term to get to the next term.A geometric sequence uses multiplicative and divisive formulas while an arithmetic uses additive and subtractive formulas.
