    variables are the letters constants are the numbers by themselves reason it is called a constant is because the number does not change. variable can be different numbers depending on the problem.

    So for example y=x This equation varies depending on what x equals So if x equals 7 then y equals 7 If x equals 8 y equals 8 There is no set value for x. x can literally equal anything and therefore so can y So which example is a constant number?

    Constants do not have any variable terms, i.e. x and y.
