In the previous segment, we learnt how to count the number of terms in an algebraic expression. In this segment, we will learn about Factors of a term.

What are Factors of a term?

The numbers and/or variables that are multiplied to form a term are the Factors of the term,

For example, consider the algebraic expression 2?2 − 3??

The terms of this expression are: 2?2 ??? − 3??

Let us now express each term as its factors.

• 2?2 = 2 × ? × ?

So we can say that 2, x and x are the factors of the term, 2?2

• −3?? = −1 × ? × ?

So we can say that -3, x and y are the factors of the term, −3??
