Constant

Our math kick this week started on Monday, with Algebra, and continued yesterday, with variable. Today, we look at the constant.

MathIsFun.com informs us that, with respect to Algebra, “a constant is a number on its own, or sometimes a letter such as a, b or c to stand for a fixed number.”

In other words, it is a number whose value is known.

In our example from our post on Algebra, Y – 5 = 10, 5 and 10 are constants.

In our next post, we will finish looking at the different components of our example.
