    Use the expression 5(6 + 4x) to answer the following: Part A: Describe the two factors in this expression. Part B: How many terms are in each factor of this expression? Part C: What is the coefficient of the variable term?

    my answers are: 4 and x are factors of 4x. There are 3 terms in this expression. The coefficient of the variable term is 4.

    the factors are the terms separated by the multiplication sign

    \[\Large 5 \times \left( {6 + 4x} \right)\]

    in the first factor there is only one term which is 5

    i read this in my lesson is the same as what you mean? Factor: One of the numbers or variables that are multiplied together to produce a product; for example, 2 and x are factors of 2x.

    yes! that's right! nevertheless we have a multiplication between 5 and 6+4x

    the second factor is 6+4x, so we have 2 terms, namley: 4 and 6x

    you can view 6x as a monomial, so it represents only one term

    so 5 isnt a term but 6 is?

    5 is a term, since it is a factor

    So correction: The factors are 5 and 6+4x There are 2 terms in each factor of this expression The coefficient of the variable term is 4

    first and third answers are correct! in the first factor we have only one term whereas in the second factor there are two terms

    so it should be said as in my answer in the first factor we have only one term but in the second factor there are two terms
