A number with only two factors, one and itself, is called a Prime number. The only even whole prime number is two. Your question implies that there is only one whole number greater than one which is prime, however, since odd numbers are whole numbers, and odd numbers (but not even) are prime, there are infinite prime numbers (since no one has checked each number to infinity to see if it's prime, and, obviously, never will, most assume that the list of prime whole numbers is not finite). Examples are 3, 5, and 13. 9 is an example of an odd number which is not prime.

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
