Rewrite this without the coefficient.
Example: 3m = m+m+m
However, I cannot seem to figure out what to do with this problem:
5m^3n^2
I can't figure out how to rewrite so the 5 is gone and without changing the exponents!

One possiblity would be
[m^3n^2 + m^3n^2 + m^3n^2 + m^3n^2 + m^3n^2]

The  in front is like a 1 so that would still leave a coefficient...

Unless it was (m^3n^2 + m^3n^2 + m^3n^2 + m^3n^2 + m^3n^2) then that would have eliminated the 1 in front! I knew it was easy I just couldn't get my brain to wrap around it!
