(iv) -11/z

4. In 7ab2c3, write the coefficient of:

(i) 7

(ii) a

(iii) b2

(iv) c3

(v) 7a

5. Write down the coefficient of mn2 in each of the following:

(i) -mn2

(ii) 5mn2

(iii) -7mn2

(iv) (2/5) mn2

(v) 3mn2x

(vi) (-3x/y) mn2

6. Write the coefficient of:

(i) a in -2ab2

(ii) a in -ap

(iii) b in -b

(iv) b in (2/p) b

(v) ab in -7abc

(vi) ap in -ab2p

(vii) a2b in -5pa2b

(viii) ab2 in 7pab2

(ix) x2 in -10x2y

(x) x2y in 7abx2y

7. State the numerical coefficient of each of the following:

(i) 3mn

(ii) xyz

(iii) 7abc

(iv) -2m/n

(v) 3/5 mn2

(vi) -13ab/3c

(vii) -9a ÷ b

(viii) -5p ÷ (3q)

(ix) a/-b

(x) –p/-q
