The question is equivalent to asking if there are two numbers whose sum is 6 (the coefficient of x) and whose product is 18 (the constant term). Since there are no such real numbers, the answer is NO. There is a solution in the complex domain but the normal context for such questions is the real numbers.

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
