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



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
