Hi,

I apologize if this is posted in the incorrect forum. I couldn't quite find one that seemed appropriate.

I have a question about terms in mathematics:

Given the expression:

$\displaystyle (x + 2)(x + 5)$

Could $\displaystyle (x + 2)$ be called a "term" in the expression? Or could it be called a factor of the expression? I guess I'm looking for what to call it.

I've done some google searches, but couldn't find anything.

Thanks,
