Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the coefficient of a term includes the sign and any constant (numbers, \(\pi\), etc., i.e. the term stripped of the variables. g and h are rarely used as variables, but they look like variables, so if you remove the variables, what's left will be the coefficient. For example, 3 is the coefficient of 3xyz. \(\sqrt{48}\pi \) is the coefficient of \(\sqrt{48}\pi x^2y\)
