Algebraic terms are formed in mathematics to represent quantities in general form. An algebraic term can be matched with two or more algebraic terms in some cases but in some other cases, they may be different.
The similarity and dissimilarity of the algebraic terms can be identified by the comparison of their literal factors. Thus, the algebraic terms are classified into two types by this property.
If the literal factors of two or more algebraic terms are same, then they are called like algebraic terms.
If the literal factors of two or more algebraic terms are different, then they are called like algebraic terms.
