How do you identify the terms, like terms, coefficients, and constant terms of the expression #4x^2 + 1 - 3x^2 +5#?
Full explanation below.
This expression, as is, has four terms:
The "like" terms, are the terms with the same exponent (power) on the variable, which we can add up. They are:
We could also call
A coefficient is the constant part of a product between constant and variable, in one term. So for example, when you have
Finally, constant terms are terms without a variable. So, the constants in this case are
If we wanted to add up the like terms to simplify the expression, it would be:
