## 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)
