A constant is just a number, while a coefficient is associated by one or more variables, for example -2x, 5x2y, -zw, ect. We say that a coefficient is the numerical part of a term.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Explain the difference between a constant and a coefficient?

A constant is just a number that remains same throughout, while a coefficient is one which is followed by one or more variables.


What is the difference between a coefficient and variable?

A variable is a part of a term which can change. A coefficient is a numerical constant, associated with a variable. For example, in the term 3x^2 , 3 is the coefficient, while x is a variable.

What is the difference between a constant and coefficient term?

A constant is always the same number, no matter what formula or equation it is used in (this is different from using the same symbol for several constants, in which case it might be interpreted incorrectly as the wrong constant is used). Some exmaples are pi the circular constant, e the natural number constant and G the gravitational constant. A coefficient is the number multiplying a variable, e.g. in 5x2 and 9y, 5 and 9 are the coefficients of the x2 and y terms.


What is a constant coefficient?

In a ploynomial or differential equation or really any formula or equation with variables in it, the coefficients are the terms "in front of" the variable or multiplied the variables. Each variable generally has its own coefficient. If a coefficient is constant (ie just a number) then it is a constant coefficient. eg Consider the polynomial , 3x2+9yx+6 in terms of x. It has one constant coefficient (3), one variable coefficient (9y) and one constant (6).
