LIKE & UNLIKE TERM OF ALGEBRA

**Like & Unlike
Term**

**If the two terms has the same literal factors then they are
called Like Terms. Two terms which do not have the same literal factor are called
Unlike Terms. As an example we can see that,**

**In 1) 5ba, 3ab, -ab
are Like Terms because literal factors ab & ba in the term 5ba, 3ab, -ab
respectively **

**Whereas 2) 3a⁵b², -7a⁴b are unlike term because the
literal factors are a⁵b² & a⁴b in
the terms 3a⁵b² and -7a⁴b respectively.**
