While multiplying we need to take care of some points about the multiplication of like and unlike terms.

**1. Multiplication of Like Terms**

- The coefficients will get multiplied.
- The power will not get multiplied but the resultant variable will be the addition of the individual powers.

**Example**

- The product of 4x and 3x will be 12x
^{2}. - The product of 5x, 3x and 4x will be 60x
^{3}.

**2. Multiplication of Unlike Terms**

- The coefficients will get multiplied.
- The power will remain the same if the variable is different.
- If some of the variables are the same then their powers will be added.

**Example**

- The product of 2p and 3q will be 6pq
- The product of 2x
^{2}y, 3x and 9 will be 54x^{3}y
