If they're both going the same speed, then the bigger one has the greater momentum.

If they're not going the same speed, then you don't know, because the momentum

involves the speed as well as the mass. If the smaller one is going fast enough, it could

have more momentum than the bigger one.

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 has greater momentum a car standing still or a bug fyling?

Assuming that both the stationary car and the flying bug can be analyzed against the same reference point, the bug has the greater momentum. Momentum is defined as the product of mass and velocity. If the car exhibits no motion, then its momentum is zero. Since the bug is flying, it has nonzero velocity and a nonzero momentum, which is greater than the car's momentum.
