A coordinate plane is formed when two number lines intersect at right angles The x-axis is the horizontal axis and the y-axis is the vertical axis The two axes meet at the origin, O (0,0) A radical in simplest form is one in which the radical has no perfect square factors other than one The square root of a perfect square is an integer A linear function is a function whose graph forms a straight line Algebra is a tool for describing and representing patterns and relationships Changing the groupings or the order of factors does not change a sum or product The laws of exponents can be investigated using patterns

The operations and the magnitude of the numbers in an expression impact the choice of an appropriate method of computation Polynomial expressions can be used to model real-life situations Apply appropriate computational techniques to evaluate an algebraic expression Express numbers, using scientific notation, and perform operations, using the laws of exponents Express the square root of a whole number less than 1000 in simplest radical form Find the quotient of polynomials, using a monomial devisor Relate concrete and pictorial representations for polynomial operations to their corresponding algebraic manipulations Translate verbal expressions into algebraic expressions with three or fewer terms Use the distributive property to factor out all common monomial factors

Use the x-intercepts from the graphical representation of the polynomial to determine and confirm its factors.
