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

The"t" test, (called the "small 't' test, to distinguish it from the large 'T' test) is a test for deviation from a known norm, using a smaller sample set than the one required by the large T test. It is said to have been developed by the head of quality control at the Guinness Brewery in Ireland.

Why would you use a z test rather than a t test?

What is the difference between z-score and t-score?

T-scores and z-scores measure the deviation from normal. The normal for T-score is 50 with standard deviation of 10. if the score on t-score is more than 50, it means that the person scored above normal (average), and vise versa. The normal for Z-score is 0. If Z-score is above 0, then it means that person scored above normal (average), and vise versa.
