identify the coefficients, constant term(s), and like terms of the expression.
8x + 9 - 3x
17 - 2a + 5a - 1
7m - 7 + 6m - 6
-10 -15r -22r + 8     Constants, and coeficiants 2009-01-10 From Kelsey:
I am having trouble trying to remember what like terms, constants, and coeficiants are. My math teacher hasent been explaining it very well and i was wondering how to remember what they are, and what they are? I dont understand the concepts.     Coefficients, Like Terms, and Constants 2008-08-14 From Maddie:
How Would I Answer This Problem?

Coefficients Like Terms Constants
3x+7
4m+(-3n)+n
6kp+9k+kp-14
-8y+6ab+7-3ba
c+2c+c-5c+1

I Would Really Appreciate It If You Could Help Me
Sincerely,     Degree 2006-02-09 From Jessica:
I am a 9th grade home school student and have started doing degrees of terms in my math book. The following is some examples they give:

25a to the 4th power is a 4th degree term

67c to the 9th power is a 9th degree term

x is really x to the 1st power so it is a 1st degree term

10 is really 10x to the 0 power so it is a 0 degree term

They go on to say that every constant is a zero degree term.

My question is why isn't a constant, like 10, simply to the 1st power (making is a 1st degree term) like x.     Coefficients, constants and like terms 2005-10-05 From Elizabeth:
In the equation -8y+6ab+7-3ab what are the coefficients; the like terms and constants?      Page1/1    Math Central is supported by the University of Regina and The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences.    about math central :: site map :: links :: notre site français
