Okay, 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?

By the way, it's b^2  4ac, not b^2  4ab

8x 8 is a constant x is a variable and actually 8 here is a constant multiple and is therefore the coefficient of x

freckles Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
8 here is called a constant multiple because it is being multiply by that variable
