-5x^3 + 2x^2 + 1

a coefficient is the number that is multiplied by the variable.For instance, the coefficient of 2x is 2....because 2 (the number) is multiplied by the variable x.

so in ur problem....there are 2 coefficients..-5 and 2.

** the number 1 is not a coefficient, it is a constant...a " loner " with no variables (letters) attached.

** and if u have just the letter...such as n, the coefficient to that is 1 but the one is just not written...it is actually 1n.

okay...I am gonna shut up now :)
