Answer:

See explanation

Explanation:

The terms of an expression are the things separated by the plus and minus signs. In this case, they would be #a,1,2a,#and #8a#.

The coefficients of an expression are the numbers that precede the variable in the expression. In this case they would be #1# (since #a=1a#), #2# and #8#.

The constants of an expression are the numbers which do not have a variable next to them. In this case, they would be #1#.
