Constant is a number that doesn't have a variable next to it.

All of them have x next to them. So, No constant in this equation also we could say the constant= 0.....

(Good question: Is \(\frac{4}{x} ,\frac{1}{x^4}\) considered to have variables?)

Yes!

\(\frac{4}{x}\)=4x^-1

\(\frac{1}{x^4}=\)x^-4

So The constant of this equation is 0 (I.e. there isn')

i agree, you should refix this question, so it would make a little more sense, or is it a trick question:)???!!!!!
