# How do you identify the terms, like terms, coefficients, and constants in #5n-2n-3+n#?

##### 1 Answer

Like Terms:

Coefficients:

Constants:

#### Explanation:

Like terms are numbers with similar attributes that can be combined. In this case we are given

These are like terms and can be combined to get the final number.

The number in front of the variable is called the coefficient. In this case, the coefficient in front of first, second and third

There is an invisible

A variable is a value that is able to change over the course of an equation.

A constant is a number that that is on it's own. In this example we are given only

Constants:

Therefore we can re-write this expression simply as:
