In each of the terms written within parentheses, the number that is to be used as a factor (4 in this case) is called the base, and the number that tells how many times the base is to be used as a factor is called the exponent. This is all familiar.
The numbers outside the parentheses in the expression above have a special name, too. These multipliers are called coefficients. In our example here the coefficients are 3, 1 and 2.
In the expression 4(103) + 9(102) + 2(101) + 1(100) what is the coefficient of 101?
