2598 :) I believe Cardinal numbers are counting numbers like 1 , 2 , 3
....etc, so the number before 2599 is 2598, Now a Numeral is a symbol
that stand for a number: for example: 3 and nine are numerals. So the 4
digit numerals 2 5 9 8 stand for cardinal number 2598.
Re: Constants? in 3x^2 + 1 => 3 is a coefficient(leading coefficient)
, 2 is the exponent so this is a quadratic, hence only 1 is the
constant. That's if you are looking at it as a polynomial or binomial
since it has only two terms. If not, then I guess you can call all the
none variables as constants.
