Expressions is defined as, numbers, symbols and operators (such as +. – , × and ÷) grouped together that show the value of something.

In algebra a term is either a single number or variable, or numbers and variables multiplied together. Terms are separated by + or – signs or sometimes by division.

Factors is defined as, numbers we can multiply together to get another number.

Expressions is defined as, numbers, symbols and operators (such as +. – , × and ÷) grouped together that show the value of something.

In algebra a term is either a single number or variable, or numbers and variables multiplied together. Terms are separated by + or – signs or sometimes by division.

A coefficient is a number used to multiply a variable (2x means 2 times x, so 2 is a coefficient) Variables on their own (without a number next to them) actually have a coefficient of 1 (x is really 1x)
