What is an Expression?
An expression is one-half of a equation.
x – 6 is an expression.
x – 6 = 10 is an equation.
Equations always have an = sign.
It makes sense, equations has the word equal in it.
Coefficient is a number in front of a variable.
Variable is the letter that is the “missing value” of an expression.
Constant is a number that is included as part of an expression.
