Probability is defined as the number of ways an outcome can occur divided by the number of possible outcomes. For the coins, there are 4 outcomes (HH, HT, TH, TT). On the cube, there are 6 possible outcomes. The total number of outcomes is then 4*6 = 24. Since there is only 1 way to obtain HH, look at the cube outcomes. With the HH outcome, the cube would need to fall on a 4. So, there is only 1 way a HH4 can occur. Therefore the probability of getting 2 heads and a four is 1/24 or 0.04167.

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
