Term

A term is a basic algebraic expression that consists only of multiplications and divisions with numbers and letters.

 


Explanation

The numbers are called the coefficients. Both the figures and each letter can be raised to a power. In an algebraic expression with various terms these are separated by plus signs and minus signs.

 


Example 1

In a polynomial

the successive terms are added together.

 


Example 2

The binomium can be written as

where all terms have combinations.

 


Example 3

A square with three terms must be calculated term-by-term from left to right

(a + b + c)2 =  a2 + b2 + c2 + 2ab + 2ac + 2bc
