Help please! I will medal and fan:) I just need help figuring out the word "terms" in math!! Amelia makes $8 per hour at her job and then earns an additional $15 for every tablet she sells. She uses the expression 8h + 15t to keep track of her earnings. How many terms are in the expression, what are they, and how do you know?

    The term 8h tells how much she earned for the hours she worked. h is the number of hours. If you multiply h by 8, that is the amount of money she earned from the number of hours she worked.

    The term 15t tells you how much she earned from the number of tables she sold. If she sells t number of tables, you multiply 15 by t and you find out how much she earned from the number of tales she sold.
