Variables and Expressions
Course 3 1-1 Variables and Expressions A variable is a letter that represents a value that can change or vary. The coefficient is the number multiplied by the variable. Coefficient Variable

Variables and Expressions
Course 3 1-1 Variables and Expressions An algebraic expression has one or more variables. In the algebraic expression x + 6, 6 is a constant because it does not change. To evaluate an algebraic expression, substitute a given number for the variable, and find the value of the resulting numerical expression.
