What is the difference between a contract term and a representation?

See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contractual_terms_in_English_law

Quoting from that article:

Contract term: "A contractual [term is] "[a]ny provision forming part of a contract"."

Representation: "A representation is a statement of fact which does not amount to a term of the contract but it is one that the maker of the statement does not guarantee its truth. This gives rise to no contractual obligation but may amount to a tort, for example misrepresentation."
