|simplify||Replacing an expression containing variables by an equivalent expression with as few terms as possible.|
|factor|| An integer that divides into another integer exactly is called a Factor.|
In other words, if any integer is divided by another integer without leaving any remainder, then the latter is the factor of the former.
For example, 2 is a factor of 8, because 2 divides evenly into 8.
|product||The result obtained after multiplying two or more numbers|
|quadratic term||a term of degree two|
|linear term||a term of degree one|
|quadratic polynomial||a trinomial whose term of greatest degree is quadratic|
|constant term||an expression or equation has a fixed value and does not contain variables. The constant term in the equation 6x2 - 3x + 5 is 5.|
