# Do like terms have identical variables?

## Do like terms have identical variables?

We call terms “like terms” if they have the same variable part. For example, 4 x 4x 4x and 3 x 3x 3x are like terms, but 4 x 4x 4x and 3 w 3w 3w are not like terms.

## What do you call a term having identical literal parts?

The terms having the same literal factors are called like terms.

## What are terms with variables?

A term is a single mathematical expression. It may be a single number (positive or negative), a single variable ( a letter ), several variables multiplied but never added or subtracted. Some terms contain variables with a number in front of them. The number in front of a term is called a coefficient.

## What are examples of like terms?

Like Terms Definition

• Like terms can be defined as terms that contain the same variables raised to the same power.
• Like terms contain the same variable which is raised to the same power.
• For example, 5x + 10x is an algebraic expression with like terms.
• Consider terms as 5x, 6x, 2x, and -3x.

## Which of the following pairs are like terms?

Like algebraic terms are the terms who have the same variables but can have different constants.. For example: 2×2 is the constant and x is the variable. power of the variable has to be exactly same for two like terms.. So, (c): 3x³ and (d): 4x³ has powers same i.e. 3..

## What are terms that have the same variable raised to the same power?

Like terms are terms that contain the same variables raised to the same power. Only the numerical coefficients are different. In an expression, only like terms can be combined. We combine like terms to shorten and simplify algebraic expressions, so we can work with them more easily.

## When the terms have different literal factors or variables that are called?

The terms having same literal factors are called unlike terms.

## What are the parts of an algebraic expression?

Algebraic expressions are combinations of variables , numbers, and at least one arithmetic operation.

## How do you combine like terms with variables?

Like Terms: Terms that have identical variable parts (same variable(s) and same exponent(s)). When simplifying using addition and subtraction, you combine “like terms” by keeping the “like term” and adding or subtracting the numerical coefficients.
