A fractional coefficient means that the number before the variable in an equation is a fraction. Fractional coefficients can make problems more complex to solve because when moving terms around in the equation you must add and subtract fractions. You will learn how to do this by solving example problems, getting a common denominator for any fraction coefficients that need to be added.
