Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the constant is just the number eg: 2x+1 : 1 is the constant

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0coefficient of the term 14z: it is the number before the letter example: 6c the coefficient is 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The constant is just a number. It has no letter beside it. Please refer to my previous reply for an example.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the constant would be 18?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, okay! So the coefficients are 4, 11, 14..? (:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04w + x – 11y + 14z – 18 "the coefficients are 4, 11, 14." The coefficient of 4w is 4. Yes! The coefficient of 11y is not 11. The coefficient of 14z is 14. Yes! What is the coefficient of x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Mmm.. either none or 18.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. It's not none. If I have \(\huge y\). It means \(\huge 1y\). So the coefficient is 1.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.018 is your constant!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If it's none, then it shouldn't be in the expression because it is 0.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Also, so if it is a negitive number it doesnt count as a coefficient?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It could be a coefficient. That 's why I said, "the coefficient of 11y is not 11" because you forgot to put the sign.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, okay. So a term is a number or letter?
