A number or letter put before a letter or quantity, known or unknown, to show how many times the latter is to be taken; as, 6x; bx; here 6 and b are coefficients of x.

A number, commonly used in computation as a factor, expressing the amount of some change or effect under certain fixed conditions as to temperature, length, volume, etc.; as, the coefficient of expansion; the coefficient of friction.

A scientifically based factor that is taken into account during calculations.

the numerical factor of a term. e.g. The coefficient of -3x2y is -3. The coefficient of a3b4c2 is 1.

A multiplier of a term in a formula.

A constant used to multiply another quantity or series; as in 3x and Ax, 3 and A are coefficients of x.

A factor of the term. x is the coefficient in the term x(a + b) or 3 is the coefficient in the term 3

A value used to modify a mathematical expression or define a relationship between variables.

A number that is located in front of a variable in a monomial expression. For example, in the expression 2x + 5y, the coefficients are 2 and 5.

number preceding a formula in a balanced chemical equation to indicate the relative amount of the substance consumed or produced in the reaction.

A value required to complete the numeric solution of a mathematical model. A number which is required to relate variables. Synonyms include constant and factor. As an example, the equation relating the diameter of a circle and its area can be written in terms of a coefficient c as Area = cD2 where D is the diameter of the circle and c is a coefficient equal to Pi/4 or 3.14159/4.

a constant number that serves as a measure of some property or characteristic

a scalar quantity having no units

a small whole number that appears in front of a formula a an equation

This is a number that is multiplied times a variable.

A numerical or constant multiplier of the variable in an algebraic term. For example: : coefficient is 4

A constant multiplied by a term. In the expression 5 5 is the coefficient of

a number. One meaning is the number in front of a term in a function. Or else it can mean a number measuring a physical quantity In the expression 3x^2 + 5x - 2, the coefficient of the quadratic term is 3. Or else it can mean a number measuring a physical quantity e.g the coefficient of expansion is alpha = 0.00023

the numerical part of an algebraic term. For example, 2 and 3 are coefficients in 2 xy.

The constant factor of a monomial.

A value expressing the degree to which some characteristic or relation is to be found in specified instances; e.g., the coefficient of correlation is a value expressing the degree to which two variables vary concomitantly.

Mathematics: A coefficient is a term applied to something that multiplies something else. For example, in the equation: Indicator = A * Deviation A is the coefficient of Deviation.

a quantity (usually a numerical constant) which is multiplied by another quantity following it in an expression; e.g., in the algebraic expression , the coefficient of (the first term) is and the coefficient of (the second term) is .

the number multiplied by a variable.

the number mulitiplied by a variable. Complementary angle s -two angles whose sum is 90 degrees.

one number in a matrix, or a constant in a polynomial expression.

The numerical factor in a term; in the term 7x, 7 is the coefficient.

A constant that multiplies a variable. Example: 3x + 4y = 14, 3 is the coefficient of x and 4 is the coefficient of y.

In mathematics, a coefficient is a constant multiplicative factor of a certain object. The object can be such things as a variable, a vector, a function, etc. For example, the coefficient of 9x2 is 9.
