# How do you identify the terms, like terms, coefficients, and constant terms of the expression #4x^2 + 1 - 3x^2 +5#?

##### 1 Answer

Full explanation below.

#### Explanation:

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:
