# How do you identify the terms, like terms, coefficients and constants in each expression 8b+7b-4-6b?

Jul 13, 2018

#### Explanation:

Given: $8 b + 7 b - 4 - 6 b$

There are $4$ monomials in the given expression:
$8 b , 7 b , - 4 , - 6 b$

The like terms that can be added/subtracted are:
$8 b , 7 b , - 6 b$

The coefficients are:$\text{ "8, 7 " and } - 6$

The constant term is $\text{ } - 4$

In simplified form:

$\left(8 b + 7 b - 6 b\right) - 4 \implies \text{ } 9 b - 4$
