**Definition**. In elementary

**mathematics**, a

**term**is either a single number or variable, or the product of several numbers or variables.

**Terms**are separated by a + or - sign in an overall expression. For example, in 3 + 4x + 5yzw. 3, 4x, and 5yzw are three separate

**terms**.

Similarly, you may ask, what is the meaning of in mathematical terms?

In Algebra a **term** is either a single number or variable, or numbers and variables multiplied together. **Terms** are separated by + or − signs, or sometimes by divide. See: Variable. Algebra - Definitions.

One may also ask, what is a term and coefficient in math? The **coefficients** are the numbers that multiply the variables or letters. Thus in 5x + y - 7, 5 is a **coefficient**. In 5x + y - 7 the **terms** are 5x, y and -7 which all have different variables (or no variables) so there are no like **terms**. Constants are **terms** without variables so -7 is a constant.

What is a term in an equation?

A **Term** is either a single number or a variable, or numbers and variables multiplied together. An Expression is a group of terms (the terms are separated by + or − signs)
