Practice the questions given in the worksheet on coefficients (numerical & literal). The questions are based on indentifying the numerical coefficient and the literal coefficient in each term.

**1. State whether the following statement is true or false:**

(i) The coefficient of x in 10x is 10x

(ii) The coefficient of mn in –mn is -1

(iii) The coefficient of b in -7ab is -7

(iv) In product 9pq, 9 is the numerical coefficient of pq

(v) In product 4abc, b is the literal coefficient of 4a

**2. Write down the
coefficient of x in each of the following:**

(i) x

(ii) –x

(iii) –7x

(iv) – 3ax

(v) (1/3)xy

(vi) bx/y

(iv) -11/z

(i) 7

(ii) a

(iii) b

(iv) c

(v) 7a

(vi) ab

(i) -mn

(ii) 5mn

(iii) -7mn

(iv) (2/5) mn

(v) 3mn

(vi) (-3x/y) mn

(i) a in -2ab

(ii) a in -ap

(iii) b in -b

(iv) b in (2/p) b

(v) ab in -7abc

(vi) ap in -ab

(vii) a

(viii) ab

(ix) x

(x) x

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

(i) 3mn

(ii) xyz

(iii) 7abc

(iv) -2m/n

(v) 3/5 mn(vi) -13ab/3c
