anyways, i had a question in a quiz that asked me to write down how many terms were in this expression (keep in mind the numbers are close to what i had, just dont fully recall those numbers):

(30-25)(5+4)

Now i said there were 4, but i think i wrote down the factors, not the number of terms. Classmate said she wrote down 2 and i think she is right.

i know i know, silly basic math for someone who hasn't taken math in nearly 10 yrs heh.

anyways, any answer would be appreciated.
