Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Okay, let's start from the beginning. You may take coefficient of a term as the number before the term. For example coefficient of x in the term 8x is 8. Now, in your question, the term is 2x^2. Can you identify the coefficient of x^2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.18x 8 is a constant x is a variable and actually 8 here is a constant multiple and is therefore the coefficient of x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.18 here is called a constant multiple because it is being multiply by that variable

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4I wonder how you can respond when you're not here.... Back to the question, after @freckles 's detailed and clear explanation, which part you still don't understand?
