coefficient -- the number that is multiplied by a variable (letter). Example : 25y....25 is the coefficient : 30x....30 is the coefficient variable -- a symbol for a number that is not known yet...usually a letter Example : 25y...y is your variable : 30x....x is your variable term -- either a single number, or numbers and variables multiplied together Example : 2x + 7y = 5.....the terms are 2x,7y,and 5 2xy + 7y^2 = 16....terms are 2xy,7y^2, and 16 if it is $9 per hedge....and y stands for how many hedges he trimmed....then the total amount , just for hedges is : 9y
