The greatest common factor of 161 and 105 is the same as the greatest common factor of 105 and 56. I obtained the number 56 by subtracting 161 - 151. Continue like this, until you get one number that is an exact multiple of the other. The next step is, 105 - 56 = 49, so you have to calculate the gcf of 56 and 49.

This method is known as Euclid's Algorithm.

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
