## Terms of Algebraic Expression

 Like Terms Unlike Terms Factors of Term

Before you learn What are Terms of an Algebraic Expression, you must know

What are Constants ?
what are Variables ?

Definition : In an algebraic expression, terms are those which are separated by fundamental operator i.e. (+), (-), (X), (÷)

Terms of an algebraic expression can be a combination of a constant and variable or can be a constant only.

Also, a term is a product of its factors or we can also say that:
a Term is a product of its constants and variables.

Note: Subtraction operator is to be mentioned along with the term

Following examples will help in further understanding:-

Example 1 : Write the terms of algebraic expression; (x + y)
Answer = Terms of the given expression are (x) and (y)

Example 2 : Write the terms of algebraic expression; (x - y)
Answer = Terms of the given expression are (x) and (-y)
Note - Subtraction operator is to be mentioned along with the term

Example 3 : Write the terms of algebraic expression; (4x ÷ 2x)
Answer = Terms of the given expression are (4x) and (2x)

Example 4 : Write the terms of algebraic expression; {(5a - 7b)7}
Answer = Terms of the given expression are (5a), (-7b) and (7)
