    to be called as like terms, terms should satisfy two things- 1) variable letters, for example x, y 2) exponent of variables

    @ganeshie8 has explained it actually. For like terms, the unknown variable should be the same, and of the same power. For instance, x^4 and x^5 are not like term. Even though they share the same variable, their powers are not the same. So, we cannot do addition or subtraction for these two terms.

    but to be a like term, they have to be the SAME variable though, so wouldn't you add the exponites? x^4+x^5=x^9??

    To be a like terms, there are TWO conditions: 1. same variable 2. same variable of the SAME POWER For x^4 and x^5, they have the same variable x. I think you agree on that. But the problem comes when they fail to meet the SECOND condition, that is they do NOT share the SAME power - for x^4, the power of x is 4; for x^5, the power of x is 5. So, in this case, they CANNOT be added together nor subtraction from each other.

    Perhaps you should know this: x^a + x^b ≠ x^(a+b) BUT! (x^a) (x^b) = x^(a+b) when x is a non-zero real number and a, b are integers.
