    "In Algebra a term is either a single number or variable, or numbers and variables multiplied together. Terms are separated by + or − signs" https://www.mathsisfun.com/definitions/term.html So what can we eliminate?

    A term is a number multiplied by 0 or more variables. Terms are added together to form polynomials. Terms are only separated by + signs. The number in a term is called coefficient. The variables in a term are called the variable part. Like terms are terms that have the same variable part. That means the same variables and the same exponents. Only like terms can be combined together.

    for them to be like terms, they have to have the same variable (letter) and the same exponent. Examples : 2x and 5x --- like terms 2x and 3y -- unlike terms 3x^2 and 5x^2 -- like terms x^2 and x^3 -- unlike terms 7ab and 8ab -- like terms abc and ab -- unlike terms
