Two or more adjectives, of equal weight, modifying the same noun= COORDINATE ADJECTIVES.

Generally, you should separate the adjectives with a COMMA.

THE “ANDSWAP”TEST

FIRST: Put the word and between the adjectives and see if that makes sense.

SECOND: Swap the order of the adjectives and see if that makes sense.

If so, the adjectives are coordinate adjectives.

Consider this example:

It was a long, hot summer.
