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

How many sides does a right trapezoidal prism have?

A right trapezoidal prism has 12 sides. Any prism has three times the number of sides of its cross-sectional shape. A trapezoid has four sides, so a [right] trapezoidal prism has 3 x 4 = 12 sides.

How many sides does a prism and a pyramid have?

A prism is any 3 dimensional geometric object with parallel bases which are congruent polygons. The lateral faces of a prism are parallelograms. We generally talk of an n-sided prism where n is a natural number telling us the number of sides the prism has. To be more precise an prism is a polyhedron with two congruent polygonal faces and all the remaining faces are parallelograms. A cube is a common example of a prism. It has six sides. A triangular prism has 5 sides. So the answer to the questions : how many sides does a prism have? is it all depends on the prism, it can have different number of sides. Now a pyramid is also a 3 dimensional shape but instead of two bases it has one base connected to a point called the apex. The base of a prism is a polygon and a prism is a polyhedron also. It can have different number of sides also so there is once again no fixed answer.

What is the expression for the number of edges of a prism?

Edges = 3 x number of sides in end of prism For example, a hexagonal prism would have 3 x 6 = 18 edges since there are 6 sides to a hexagon.

Is a ball a prism?

No, A prism is a 3D shape with 2 bases and multiple sides that connect to both bases like cubes, but balls are usually smooth (or have multiple faces like a soccer ball).

What do you notice about the number of edges of a prism?
