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

When is secant not defined?

The secant of an angle is the reciprocal of the cosine of the angle. So the secant is not defined whenever the cosine is zero That is, whenever the angle is a multiple of 180 degrees (or pi radians).

What is the trigonometric function sec?

The function sec(x) is the secant function. It is related to the other functions by the expression 1/cos(x). It is not the inverse cosine or arccosine, it is one over the cosine function. Ex. cos(pi/4)= sqrt(2)/2 therefore secant is sec(pi/4)= 1/sqrt(2)/2 or 2/sqrt(2).


What is the usual period for co secant?
