Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Constant terms are terms, or numbers, that don't have variables with them. For instance, 2x would NOT be considered a constant, because "x" (the variable) is with the two. However, if it was only 2, then that would be a constant term. Remember, however, that the sign (like the operation symbol) needs to be included, except for some cases. e.g. 2x  15y + 3 The constant term is 3, however, since it has the addition sign, making it a positive integer, you can simply write "3." Another example: 2x  15y  3 The constant term is 3 because the subtraction sign is in front of the 3, making it a negative integer.
