Variable Coefficient: 6
Constant: 5


The coefficient is the number that multiplies the variable.

In this case, the number 6 is multiplying the variable x, so 6 is the coefficient.

The constant is a number that cannot be changed, because there is no variable being "attached to" it.

Looking at the problem, the number 5 cannot be altered in any way, so 5 is the constant term.
