# Write the coefficients of x² in each of the following:

i) 2 + x² + x ii) 2 - x² + x³ iii) (π/2)x² + x

iv) √2x - 1

**Solution:**

A coefficient refers to a number or quantity placed with a variable. It is usually an integer that is multiplied by the variable next to it.

i) 2 + x² + x

Coefficient of x² is 1.

ii) 2 - x² + x³

Coefficient of x² is -1.

iii) (π/2)x² + x

Coefficient of x² is π/2.

iv) √2x - 1

There is no x² term in the given expression. We can rewrite it as 0x² + √2x - 1

Therefore, the coefficient of x² = 0, as x² doesn't exist.
