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 an example of something you would measure in meters?

Anything that you might measure in yards, can easily be measured in meters. For example, the length of a car, the distance to cross a street, etc. You would NOT use meters to measure something rather small like the length of a pencil.

Why is a meter rule used to measure the initial length of a bar?

Most of the bars are coming in a standard length of 5 meters.

What is the width of a dinner plate in meters?

It depends on the plate in question, but a plate would normally be measured in centimeters rather than in meters.

What metric unit is used to measure spaghetti?

It is generally measured in grams. There is not much point in measuring it by length (such as cm or meters) because the length is not entirely consistent and it is rather impractical to line up strands of spaghetti end to end to determine the total length.

What object does kilometers measure?

Kilometers are more likely to be used to measure the distance between two places, rather than the size of objects, since in our normal experience, objects are more likely to be measured by meters or centimeters rather than by kilometers. However, the diameter of planets and their moons, or of the sun or stars, can be measured in kilometers.

The perimeter of a dog pen is twenty four meters The length is five meters What is the width of the dog pen in meters?

I am guessing this is a homework question so I will explain how to get the answer rather than just answer it. If the length is 10 meters then the 2 sides of the length equal 10 meters. If you subtract that from 24 meters you are left with 14 meters. What is the width? Remember there are 2 sides to the width.

Which is the best unit to use to measure the length of the pen?

A centimetre, unless you want to be rather precise.

How do you convert 1600 meters in 242.70 seconds?

You cannot.A metre is a measure of length in 1-dimensional space while a second (in this context) is a measure of time. The two measure different characteristics and, according to the most basic principles of dimensional analysis, any attempt at comparisons or conversions between the two are fundamentally flawed.

How do you calculate the linear meter?

Normally you would measure it, rather than calculate it. It is simply a length equivalent to 100 centimetres.

Would you rather measure a car by 4 meters or 4 kilometers?

Neither, I'd rather measure a car as about 13 ft 2 in long.I'd recommend that you ought to measure a car's length as about 4 m in length as a car 4 km long would be about 2.5 miles long.As a guide: the longest trains average about 2 km (1.25 miles) long with the longest in the US limited by air brake capability to about 3.7 km long.The longest ever train consisted of 682 loaded wagons and 8 locomotives evenly placed throughout the train for a total length of 7.353 km (4.568 miles). It was all controlled by one driver.

Why should you always measure position at the bottom hook of spring rather than at the center of mass of the attached load?

at the bottom you will get some value which is positive while if you measure at the centre you will get zero length

What is the measure of the central angles if the arc length equals 3.14 and the radius equals 9?

Whoever wrote this question for you would be happy to see "pi" in the answer rather than "3.14." So I will use pi. Measure of central angle/360=arc length/2pi*r; measure.../360=pi/2pi*9; measure.../360=1/18; measure...=360/18=20. The measure of the central angle is 20 degrees.
