Jamie and Billy each think of a polynomial. Each of their polynomials is monic, has degree 3, and has the same positive constant term and the same coefficient of x. The product of their polynomials is  x^6 +2x^5 +2x^4 +18x^3 + 33x^2+40x+81.  What is the constant term of Jamie's polynomial?

The only terms in the poynomials that will provide the constant in the product polynomial are the costant terms (which the question states are the same )

so    constant * constant = 81       the constant is 9
