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 the difference between a coordinate grid and a coordinate plane?

A coordinate grid has just one large section displaying data varying from (0,0) to (infinity,infinity). On the other hand, a coordinate plane is much different. A coordinate plane has four sections, (+,+), (+,-), (-,+), and (-,-). Theese four sections are all in oposite corners of a grid. I hope this helped!!

What is the definition of coordinate grid?

Coordinate grid is a plane with a x and y axis extending from the origin with multiple perpendicular line spaced out evenly on the grid. Oh, it's also used to graph some data or info (most of the time used in math)

Why does best fit line does not touch all data points?

Because the "best fit" line is usually required to be a straight line, but the data points are not all on one straight line. (If they were, then the best-fit line would be a real no-brainer.)

What graph shows continuous data?

A graph that shows continuous data is a graph that goes diagonally straight without and ups or downs, and it is a constant rate/ has the same amount between each coordinate as it goes up/down each time!
