# How do you identify the terms, like terms, coefficients, and constants in each expression: -22m-2n+1?

May 17, 2018

Terms: $- 22 m$, $- 2 n$, and $1$.

Coefficients: $- 22$ and $- 2$

Constant: $1$

#### Explanation:

Given:

$- 22 m - 2 n + 1$

Terms are separated by positive and negative signs. A coefficient is the number in front of a variable, which is a letter ($m$ and $n$ in this expression). No coefficient is understood to be $1$. A constant does not have a variable.
