Dear Student

In mathematics = A numerical or constant quantity placed before and multiplying the variable in an algebraic expression
Example = 7x means 7 times x, and “x” is a variable, so 7 is a coefficient.

In physics = A multiplier or factor that measures a particular property.

Welcome to askIITians
 
In a polynomial :
 
Example if we take a Cubic Polynomial  5 x3 + 7 x+ 2 x + 14 
 
Here 5,7, 2 , 14 are said to be Coefficient of x3 , Coefficient of  x2 , Coefficient of x and Constant terms respectively.
 
A numerical or constant quantity before and multiplying the variable in an algebraic expression is called the “Coefficient”
