3. Cadets are marching in a parade. There are \[\mathbf{5}\]cadets in a row. What is the rule, which gives the number of cadets, given the number of rows? (Use n for the number of rows)

Ans. Number of cadets= Number of cadets in each row × Number of rows

Number of rows= $n$

Number of cadets in each row=$5$ (∵Given)

∴ Total number of cadets= $5\times n=5n$

4. If there are \[\mathbf{50}\] mangoes in a box, how will you write the total number of mangoes in terms of the number of boxes? (Use b for the number of boxes)

Ans. Number of mangoes= Number of mangoes in each box × Number of boxes

Number of boxes= b

Number of mangoes in each box= $50$ (∵Given)

∴ Total number of mangoes= $50\times b=50b$

5. The teacher distributes \[\mathbf{5}\] pencils per student. Can you tell how many pencils are needed, given the number of students? (Use s for the number of students)

Ans. Number of pencils needed= Number of pencils distributed per student × Number of students

7. Radha is drawing a dot Rangoli (a beautiful pattern of lines joining dots with chalk powder as in figure). She has \[\mathbf{8}\] dots in a row. How many dots will her Rangoli have for r rows? How many dots are there if there are \[\mathbf{8}\] rows? If there are \[\mathbf{10}\] rows?

Ans. Number of dots = Number of dots in each row × Number of rows

Number of rows= r

Number of dots in each row= $8$ (∵Given)

∴ Total number of dots= $8\times r=8r$……(Equation 1)

For $8$ rows,

$r=8$

Total number of dots= \[8\times r=8\times 8=64\]……(∵ From Equation 1)

For $10$ rows,

$r=10$

Total number of dots= \[8\times r=8\times 10=80\]……(∵ From Equation 1)

Laddus given to guests and family = l

Laddus remaining = 5 (∵Given)

∴ Total laddus = l+5

10. Oranges are to be transferred from larger boxes into smaller boxes. When a large box is emptied, the oranges from it fill two smaller boxes and still 10 oranges remain outside. If the number of oranges in a small box are taken to be x, what is the number of oranges in the larger box?

Ans. Number of smaller boxes = 2

Number of oranges in 1 small box = \[x\]

Oranges remaining outside = 10

Total number of oranges in larger box = (number of smaller boxes) × (number of oranges in 1 smaller box) + oranges remaining outside

∴ Total oranges in larger box =$2x+10$

11. (a) Look at the following matchstick pattern of squares. The squares are not separate. Two neighbouring squares have a common matchstick.

Ans. $$

Z | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 20 |

$\frac{z}{3}$ | $\frac{8}{3}$ | 3 | $\frac{10}{3}$ | $\frac{11}{3}$ | 4 | $\frac{13}{3}$ | $\frac{14}{3}$ | 5 | $\frac{16}{3}$ | $\frac{17}{3}$ | 6 | $\frac{19}{3}$ | $\frac{20}{3}$ |

∴ At $z=12$, $\frac{z}{3}$=4

Hence, $z=12$ is the solution.

(d) Complete the table and by inspection of the table find the solution to the equation \[\mathbf{m}-\mathbf{7}=\mathbf{3}\].

m | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | … | … |

\[\mathbf{m}-\mathbf{7}\] | … | … | … | … | … | … | … | … | … | … | … |

Ans.

m | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 |

$m-7$ | -2 | -1 | 0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 |

∴ At $m=10$, $m-7=3$

Hence, $m=10$is the solution.

1. What is Algebra? What is a Variable?

Variables can be defined as a sign or symbol of which, we are yet to find a valuation. It is generally denoted as X or Y.

An example can be; X+3= 9, where X can be the variable.

When a variable is applied, it is not just one value. It is represented in many numerical forms. Variables can be very productive in graphical illustrations.

In simple terms, variables are changeable. This is the reason why they are called variables. There are three main types of variables, namely; dependent, controlled and independent.

Algebra is a part of mathematics explaining different Greek symbols and regulations for deducing various problems into their solutions. The symbols given constitute specific valuations known as variables.
