Answer: like terms are terms that have the same variables and powers

For example: 3x and 4x are like terms because they both are x and only x. 12xy and 4y would not be like terms because they don’t share the same variable. if it was 5x ² and 8x ² they would be like terms. i hope this helps!

Answer:Step-by-step explanation:Like terms are terms that have the same variable raised to the same exponent. For example, 7z and 2z are like terms because they have the same variable, z, and are raised to the same exponent, 1. 5x² and 10x are not though, because the first one is raised to a power of 2, whereas the latter is only raised to a power of 1. And numbers with different variables, like 7x and 3z, are not either.
