Everytime someone goes to McDonald's and orders for a group 2 fries, three Big Macs and 2 shakes you are multiplying the cost of the fries by 2, the cost of the Big Macs by 3 and the cost of the shakes by 2. The 2 and 3 are the monomials. The difference in algebra is that x fries, y Big Macs and z shakes have variable x, y and z values. Marielouise, for the Teacher2Teacher service
