Explanation:

The terms of an expression are the things separated by the plus and minus signs. In this case, they would be #9, 8z, 3,# and #5z#.

The coefficients of an expression are the numbers that precede the variable in the expression. In this case they would be #8# and #5#.

The constants of an expression are the numbers which do not have a variable next to them. In this case, they would be #9# and #3#.
