# Constant Definition

In Mathematics, Constant has different meanings as per the context in which it is being used. The simplest definition of the Constant is a number that has a fixed value. It means the number that doesn’t change with variation in the Variable of an Expression.

Note:

For Example:

In the following equation,

4x + 6 = 79

The terms "6" and "79" are called constant because these numbers don’t depend on the variable "x". So, you can say that a number with which no variable is multiplied is called a “Constant” in Mathematics.

## FAQ's

Are constant and coefficient same?

No, Constant and Coefficient both belong to two different terminologies in Mathematics. A constant is one to which no variable is attached. On the other hand, the coefficient is the number that is multiplied by a variable.

What is the difference between constant and variable?

A constant doesn’t change in any condition while a variable depends on constants and can change its value according to expression. These are also called opposite to each other in this dimension.

Is constant a term in an expression?

Yes, the constant is a single term that takes part in creating an expression in Mathematics.
