A coefficient is any number in front of a variable .
a coefficient is the number before the variable.example- 4y the 4 before the y is the coefficient.
It mean you need to go back to 2nd grade math
well the coefficient in math is the number before the varibal.
the number with the variable. For example, in 6x, the coefficient is 6.
A coefficient is a number before a variable. For example, in 2x, the 2 would be the coefficient
if there is something like 4x^2, then the 4 is the coefficient. It is the coefficient of the X. The squared part is the exponent. If something is just 2x, then the 2 is the exponent. It is the known number, the constant that is multiplied times the X.
it is called a coefficient
Example: 6xIn this example, '6' is the 'numerical' coefficient of the expression, 'x' is the 'literal' coefficient.
OK, say you have a variable like X. 3X 3 is the variable X's coefficient
One fifth can mean a percentage of a certain object, or be problem to converting it into decimals. 1/5 can also be a coefficient to a variable, such as x.
