## What are examples of variables in algebra?

variable, In algebra, a symbol (usually a letter) standing in for an unknown numerical value in an equation. Commonly used variables include x and y (real-number unknowns), z (complex-number unknowns), t (time), r (radius), and s (arc length).

**What is a variable in an algebraic expression?**

A variable is a letter representing some unknown; a variable always represents a number, but it carries varying values when written in an expression. By convention, mathematicians usually assign letters(not mandatory) at the end of the alphabet (such as x, y, and z) to be variables.

**What is 4x variable?**

Parts of an Equation It is usually a letter like x or y. A number on its own is called a Constant. A Coefficient is a number used to multiply a variable (4x means 4 times x, so 4 is a coefficient)
