How do you identify the terms, like terms, coefficients and constants in each expression a+1+2a+8a?
The terms of an expression are the things separated by the plus and minus signs. In this case, they would be
The coefficients of an expression are the numbers that precede the variable in the expression. In this case they would be
The constants of an expression are the numbers which do not have a variable next to them. In this case, they would be
