The algebraic terms are actually defined in algebra for representing the quantities in the form of literals. In some special cases, the algebraic terms have similarity and also have dissimilarity in the remaining cases.

The similarly and dissimilarity of the algebraic terms are determined in algebraic mathematics by their literal coefficients. On the basis of the concept of literal coefficient, the algebraic terms are classified as two types.

The algebraic terms are called as like algebraic terms if the algebraic terms have same literal coefficients.

$6ax$ and $-7ax$ are like algebraic terms.

The algebraic terms are called as unlike algebraic terms if the algebraic terms have different literal coefficients.

$3a^2x$ and $9ax^2$ are unlike algebraic terms.
