(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); attempting math litearcy

I have decided to attempt to become literate in the language of math and I am doing so by a solo effort in a world of words provided to me by various sources. All I am reading makes sense so far but I would greatly appreciate some aid in translating the idea that multiplication involving

a coefficient and one or more variables or constants is expressed by writing

the coefficient followed by the variables or constants with no symbols in

between.
