Answer:

The term "you and I" is a noun phrase , made up of the pronouns "you" and "I" joined by the conjunction "and".

Explanation:

A noun phrase is a group of words based on a noun or a pronoun that functions as a unit in a sentence.
-- The pronoun "you" is a personal pronoun, a word that takes the place of the noun (name) of the person (or persons) spoken to.
-- The pronoun "I" is a personal pronoun, a word that takes the place of the noun (name) of the person speaking as the subject of a sentence or a clause.
-- The noun phrase "you and I" must function as the subject of a sentence or a clause because it includes the subject pronoun "I".

Examples of the noun phrase in a sentence:
You and I can do our homework at my house.
-- Compound subject of the sentence.
My grandma loved the cake that you and I made for her .
-- Compound subject of the relative clause.
