Example 13: Simplify the expression by combining the like terms:

$ 7{x^3} - 3{x^2}y + x{y^2} + {x^2}y - {y^3} $ 

Ans: Rearranging the terms in the given expression, we get

\[7{x^3} - 3{x^2}y + {x^2}y + x{y^2} - {y^3}\]

\[ = 7{x^3} + \left( { - 3{x^2}y} \right) + {x^2}y + x{y^2} - {y^3}\]

[using distributive property}

\[ = 7{x^3} + ( - 3 + 1){x^2}y + x{y^2} - {y^3}\]

\[ = 7{x^3} + ( - 2){x^2}y + x{y^2} - {y^3}\]

\[ = 7{x^3} - 2{x^2}y + x{y^2} - {y^3}\]

 

Example 14: Subtract the sum of  $  - 3{x^3}{y^2} + 2{x^2}{y^3} $  and  $  - 3{x^2}{y^3} - 5{y^4} $  from  $ {x^4} + {x^3}{y^2} + {x^2}{y^3} + {y^4} $ .

Ans:

\[\Rightarrow \left( -3{{x}^{3}}{{y}^{2}}+2{{x}^{2}}{{y}^{3}} \right)+\left( -3{{x}^{2}}{{y}^{3}}-5{{y}^{4}} \right)\]

\[\Rightarrow -3{{x}^{3}}{{y}^{2}}+2{{x}^{2}}{{y}^{3}}-3{{x}^{2}}{{y}^{3}}-5{{y}^{4}}\]

\[\Rightarrow -3{{x}^{3}}{{y}^{2}}-{{x}^{2}}{{y}^{3}}-5{{y}^{4}}\]

Sum =\[ - 3{x^3}{y^2} - {x^2}{y^3} - 5{y^4}\]

\[\Rightarrow \left( {{x}^{4}}+{{x}^{3}}{{y}^{2}}+{{x}^{2}}{{y}^{3}}+{{y}^{4}} \right)-\left( -3{{x}^{3}}{{y}^{2}}-{{x}^{2}}{{y}^{3}}-5{{y}^{4}} \right)\]

\[\Rightarrow {{x}^{4}}+{{x}^{3}}{{y}^{2}}+{{x}^{2}}{{y}^{3}}+{{y}^{4}}+3{{x}^{3}}{{y}^{2}}+{{x}^{2}}{{y}^{3}}+5{{y}^{4}}\]

\[\Rightarrow {{x}^{4}}+{{x}^{3}}{{y}^{2}}+3{{x}^{3}}{{y}^{2}}+{{x}^{2}}{{y}^{3}}+{{x}^{2}}{{y}^{3}}+{{y}^{4}}+5{{y}^{4}}\]

\[\Rightarrow {{x}^{4}}+4{{x}^{3}}{{y}^{2}}+2{{x}^{2}}{{y}^{3}}+6{{y}^{4}}\]

Difference = \[{x^4} + 4{x^3}{y^2} + 2{x^2}{y^3} + 6{y^4}\]

 

Example 15: Find the value of the following expressions at  $ a = 1 $  and  $ b =  - 2 $  :

i.       $ {a^2} + {b^2} + 3ab $ 

ii.       $ {a^3} + {a^2}b + a{b^2} + {b^3} $ 

Ans: (i) Value of  $ {a^2} + {b^2} + 3ab $  at  $ a = 1 $  and  $ b =  - 2 $ 

 $  = {(1)^2} + {( - 2)^2} + 3(1)( - 2) $ 

 $  = 1 + 4 - 6 $ 

 $  = 5 - 6 $ 

 $  =  - 1 $ 


(ii) Value of  $ {a^3} + {a^2}b + a{b^2} + {b^3} $  at  $ a = 1 $  and  $ b =  - 2 $ 

 $  = {(1)^3} + {(1)^2}( - 2) + (1){( - 2)^2} + {( - 2)^3} $ 

 $  = 1 - 2 + 4 - 8 $ 

 $  = 5 - 10 $ 

 $  =  - 5 $

  4. \[4xy{z^2},4{x^2}yz\]

Ans: b)\[ - 10xy{z^2},3xy{z^2}\]

Like terms are the terms whose variables and their exponents are the same. In the given options only option b has the terms whose variables and exponents are the same.


7. Identify the binomial out of the following:

  1. \[3x{y^2} + 5y - {x^2}y\]

  2. \[{x^2}y - 5y - {x^2}y\]

  3. \[xy + yz + zx\]

  4. \[3x{y^2} + 5y - x{y^2}\]

Ans: d) \[3x{y^2} + 5y - x{y^2}\]

An algebraic expression containing two unlike terms is called binomial. Grouping the like terms, we have \[3x{y^2} + 5y - x{y^2} = 3x{y^2} - x{y^2} + 5y = 2x{y^2} + 5y\]. Here we only have two terms, hence the option d is correct.


8. The sum of   $  {x^4} - xy + 2{y^2}  $   and   $   - {x^4} + xy + 2{y^2}  $   is

  1. Monomial and polynomial in   $  y  $

First find the sum of   $  {x^4} - xy + 2{y^2}  $   and   $   - {x^4} + xy + 2{y^2}  $  

That is   $   = \left( {{x^4} - xy + 2{y^2}} \right) + \left( { - {x^4} + xy + 2{y^2}} \right)  $  

  $   = {x^4} - xy + 2{y^2} - {x^4} + xy + 2{y^2}  $  

  $   = {x^4} - {x^4} - xy + xy + 2{y^2} + 2{y^2}  $     {grouping like terms}

  $   = 0 + 0 + 4{y^2}  $  

  $   = 4{y^2}  $  

Here we can see that the obtained term is monomial and it is a polynomial in y.

  1.   $  5x - y  $  

  2.   $  y - 5x  $  

  3.   $  x - 5y  $  

  4.   $  5y - x  $  

Ans: c)  $  5y - x  $  

5 times of y means   $  5y  $  

The subtraction of 5 times of y from x means    $  5y - x  $  


10.   $   - b - 0  $   is equal to

  1.   $   - 1 \times b  $  

  2.   $  1 - b - 0  $  

  3.   $  0 - ( - 1) \times b  $  

  4.   $   - b - 0 - 1  $  

Ans: a)   $   - 1 \times b  $  

Because the value of   $   - b - 0  $   is   $   - b  $  . That is   $   - b - 0 =  - b  $  

Now we have to check for all the given options 

  1.   $   - 1 \times b =  - b  $  

  2.   $  1 - b - 0 = 1 - b  $  

  3.   $  0 - \left( { - 1} \right) \times b = 1b  $  

  4.   $   - b - 0 - 1 =  - b - 1  $  

Hence option a) is correct.


11. The side length of the top of the square table is   $  x  $  . The expression for perimeter is:

  1.   $  4 + x  $  

  2.   $  2x  $  

  3.   $  4x  $  

  4.   $  8x  $  

Ans: c)   $  4x  $  

We know that the perimeter of a square is 4 times its side.

Since they are given that the side of a square table is x.

Therefore, perimeter of a square table is   $  4x  $  


12. The number of scarfs of length half meter that can be made from   $  y  $   meters of cloth is:

  1.   $  2y  $

  3.   $  y + 2  $  

  4.   $  y + \dfrac{1}{2}  $    $  4x  $  

Ans: a) 2y

They have given that the length if scarf is half meter   $   \Rightarrow \dfrac{1}{2}m  $  

So, the number of scarf’s which can be made from y meters is 

  $   \Rightarrow y \div \left( {\dfrac{1}{2}} \right)  $  

  $   \Rightarrow y \times \dfrac{2}{1}  $  

  $   \Rightarrow 2y  $  

Hence option a) is correct.


13.   $  123{x^2}y - 138{x^2}y  $   is a like term of:

  1.   $  10xy  $  

  2.   $   - 15xy  $  

  3.   $   - 15x{y^2}  $  

  4.   $  10{x^2}y  $  

Ans: d)   $  10{x^2}y  $  

Given   $  123{x^2}y - 138{x^2}y  $  . We can see that the two terms are like terms and we can subtract them.

Then   $  123{x^2}y - 138{x^2}y =  - 15{x^2}y  $  . We know that like terms are the terms whose variables and their exponents are the same. 

If we observe the options the correct option is d).

  1. 1

  2. 0

  3.   $   - 1  $  

  4. 11

Ans: a) 1

Given   $  3{x^2} - 5x + 3  $  . 

Put   $  x = 1  $   in the given equation.

  $   = 3{\left( 1 \right)^2} - 5\left( 1 \right) + 3  $  

  $   = 3 - 5 + 3  $  

  $   = 6 - 5  $  

  $   = 1  $  

Hence the correct option is a).


15. The expression for the number of diagonals that we can make from one vertex of a   $  n  $   sided polygon is:

  1.   $  2n + 1  $  

  2.   $  n - 2  $  

  3.   $  5n + 2  $  

  4.   $  n - 3  $  

Ans: d)   $  n - 3  $  

We know that the vertex is formed by joining the two sides. 

Diagonal is line segment joining the two opposite vertices. So, the number of diagonal formed by one vertex is   $  n - 3  $  


16. The length of a side of a square is given as   $  2x + 3  $  . Which expression represents the perimeter of the square?

  1.   $  2x + 16  $  

  2.   $  6x + 9  $  

  3.   $  8x + 3  $  

  4.   $  8x + 12  $   

Ans: d)   $  8x + 12  $  

We know that the perimeter of a square is 4 times its side.

That is the perimeter of a square   $  P = 4 \times \left( {{\text{side}}} \right)  $  

Given the side is   $  2x + 3  $  

  $   \Rightarrow P = 4 \times \left( {2x + 3} \right)  $  

  $   \Rightarrow P = 8x + 12  $  

Hence the option d) is correct.


In questions 17 to 32, fill in the blanks to make the statements true. 

17. Sum or difference of two like terms is ________.

Ans: Sum or difference of two like terms is like terms.

For example, take any terms like   $  xy  $   and   $  5xy  $  .

Then   $  xy + 5xy = 6xy  $  

$  xy - 5xy =  - 4xy  $   is a similar term. 


18. In the formula, area of circle   $   = \pi {r^2}  $  , the numerical constant of the expression   $  \pi {r^2}  $   is ________.

Ans: In the formula, area of circle   $   = \pi {r^2}  $  , the numerical constant of the expression   $  \pi {r^2}  $   is   $  \pi   $  .

Because the value of ‘r’ that is radius will change but not   $  \pi   $  . The value of   $  \pi  = \dfrac{{22}}{7}  $  . It is a constant.


19.   $  3{a^2}b  $   and   $   - 7b{a^2}  $   are ________ terms. 

Ans:   $  3{a^2}b  $   and   $   - 7b{a^2}  $   are like terms.

Because in both terms the variables are the same and the exponents of the variables in the two terms are the same.  


20.   $   - 5{a^2}b  $  and \[ - 5{b^2}a\] are ________ terms. 

Ans:   $   - 5{a^2}b  $   and   $   - 5{b^2}a  $   are unlike terms.

Because in both terms the variables are the same, but the exponents of the variables in the two terms are different.  


21. In the expression   $  2\pi r  $  , the algebraic variable is ________. 

Ans: In the expression   $  2\pi r  $  , the algebraic variable is ‘r’.

Because the value of ‘r’ that is radius will change but not   $  \pi   $  . The value of   $  \pi  = \dfrac{{22}}{7}  $  . It is a constant.


22. Number of terms in a monomial is ________. 

Ans: Number of terms in a monomial is one.


23. Like terms in the expression   $  n(n + 1) + 6(n - 1)  $   are ___________and ________. 

Ans: Like terms in the expression   $  n\left( {n + 1} \right) + 6\left( {n - 1} \right)  $  are n and 6n.

Because   $  n\left( {n + 1} \right) + 6\left( {n - 1} \right) = {n^2} + n + 6n - 6  $  , we can see that only n and 6n are like terms.


24. The expression   $  13 + 90  $   is a ________. 

Ans: The expression   $  13 + 90  $   is a constant.

Because   $  13 + 90 = 103  $   and 103 is a constant.


25. The speed of the car is 55 km/hrs. The distance covered in y hours is ________.

Ans: Given, the speed of the car is 55 km/hrs. The distance covered in y hours is 55y km.

We know that the formula of distance is   $  {\text{Distance}} = {\text{speed}} \times {\text{time}}  $  

Therefore, distance covered in y hour is   $  55 \times y\,\,km = 55y\,\,km  $  


26.   $  x + y + z  $   is an expression which is neither monomial nor ________.

Ans:   $  x + y + z  $   is an expression which is neither monomial nor binomial. 

Because in   $  x + y + z  $  , we can see that there are 3 unlike terms, hence it is trinomial.


27. If   $  \left( {{x^2}y + {y^2} + 3} \right)  $   is subtracted from \[\left( {3{x^2}y + 2{y^2} + 5} \right)\], then coefficient of y in the result ________.

Ans: As per the given question, we have to subtract   $  \left( {{x^2}y + {y^2} + 3} \right)  $   from \[\left( {3{x^2}y + 2{y^2} + 5} \right)\]

That is

\[ = \left( {3{x^2}y + 2{y^2} + 5} \right) - \left( {{x^2}y + {y^2} + 3} \right)\]

\[ = 3{x^2}y + 2{y^2} + 5 - {x^2}y - {y^2} - 3\]

\[ = 3{x^2}y - {x^2}y + 2{y^2} - {y^2} + 5 - 3\]

\[ = 2{x^2}y + {y^2} + 2\]

Therefore, the coefficient of y is \[2{x^2}\].


28.   $   - a - b - c  $   is same as   $   - a - \left( {\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_} \right)  $  

Ans: We have   $   - a - b - c  $  , Now taking   $   -   $   (minus) common in the last two terms, then

$   - a - b - c =  - a - \left( {b + c} \right)  $  

So,   $   - a - b - c  $   is same as   $   - a - \left( {b + c} \right)  $  


29. The unlike terms in perimeters of following figures are___________ and __________.

Ans: We know that the perimeter is the sum of all sides of the given figure.

Now in figure (i) if we add all the sides we will get the perimeter.

Perimeter = sum of all sides

$   = 2x + y + 2x + y  $  

$   = 4x + 2y  $  

That is the perimeter of figure (i) is   $  4x + 2y  $  .

Now perimeter of figure (ii) is 

Perimeter = sum of all sides

$   = x + {y^2} + x + {y^2}  $  

$   = 2x + 2{y^2}  $  

That is the perimeter of figure (ii) is   $  2x + 2{y^2}  $  .

We can observe that the unlike terms in the perimeters of two figures are   $  2y  $   and   $  2{y^2}  $  


30. On adding a monomial _____________ to   $   - 2x + 4{y^2} + z  $  , the resulting expression becomes a binomial

Ans: We know that monomial means an algebraic expression containing a single term. If we add   $  2x  $  ,   $   - 4{y^2}  $   and   $   - z  $   to the given expression then only the obtained result will be a binomial expression.

\[ \Rightarrow 2x + \left( { - 2x + 4{y^2} + z} \right) = 2x - 2x + 4{y^2} + z = 4{y^2} + z\]

\[ \Rightarrow  - 4{y^2} + \left( { - 2x + 4{y^2} + z} \right) =  - 4{y^2} - 2x + 4{y^2} + z =  - 2x + z\]

\[ \Rightarrow  - z + \left( { - 2x + 4{y^2} + z} \right) =  - z - 2x + 4{y^2} + z =  - 2x + 4{y^2}\].


31.   $  3x + 23{x^2} + 6{y^2} + 2x + {y^2} + \_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_\_ = 5x + 7{y^2}  $  .

Ans: Let's consider that the required result will be ‘M’.

Then 

$   \Rightarrow 3x + 23{x^2} + 6{y^2} + 2x + {y^2} + M = 5x + 7{y^2}  $  

$   \Rightarrow M = 5x + 7{y^2} - \left( {3x + 23{x^2} + 6{y^2} + 2x + {y^2}} \right)  $  

$   \Rightarrow M = 5x + 7{y^2} - 3x - 23{x^2} - 6{y^2} - 2x - {y^2}  $

Because, while identifying the like terms we observe whether the terms have the same variable and the same powers of variable.


49. If we add a monomial and binomial, then the answer can never be a monomial. 

Ans: False.

Because if we add a monomial and binomial then the obtained result can be monomial also. For example

We know that   $   - x  $   is a monomial and   $  x + y  $   is binomial. If we add these two we will have,   $   \Rightarrow  - x + x + y = y  $   which is a monomial.


50. If we subtract a monomial from a binomial, then the answer is at least a binomial. 

Ans: False. 

The result will also yield monomials. For example

We know that   $  x  $   is a monomial and   $  x + y  $   is binomial. If we subtract these two, we will have, \[ \Rightarrow x - \left( {x + y} \right) = x - x - y =  - y\] which is a monomial.


51. When we subtract a monomial from a trinomial, then the answer can be a polynomial. 

Ans: True.

Because we know that   $  x  $   is monomial and   $  x + y + z  $  is a trinomial. 

If we subtract one from other, we will have 

\[ \Rightarrow x - \left( {x + y + z} \right) = x - x - y - z =  - y - z\], which is a binomial.

Thus, if we subtract a monomial from a trinomial, the obtained expression will have at least two terms. By the definition of polynomial, the above statement is true.

  

52. When we add a monomial and a trinomial, then the answer can be a monomial.

\[ \Rightarrow M = {x^3} - {x^2}y - x{y^2} - {y^3}\]

\[{x^3} - {x^2}y - x{y^2} - {y^3}\] must be subtracted from   $  2{x^3} - 3{x^2}y + 2x{y^2} + 3{y^3}  $   to get   $  {x^3} - 2{x^2}y + 3x{y^2} + 4{y^3}  $  .

$   \Rightarrow M =  - 7mn + 2{m^2} + 3{n^2} - {m^2} - 2mn - {n^2}  $  

$   \Rightarrow M =  - 9mn + {m^2} + 2{n^2}  $

Ans: First we need to find the sum of   $  {x^2} - {y^2} - 1,{y^2} - {x^2} - 1  $   and   $  1 - {x^2} - {y^2}  $  .

That is

  $   = {x^2} - {y^2} - 1 + {y^2} - {x^2} - 1 + 1 - {x^2} - {y^2}  $ 

  $  = {x^2} - {x^2} - {x^2} - {y^2} - {y^2} + {y^2} - 1 - 1 + 1  $ 

  $  =  - {x^2} - {y^2} - 1  $  

Now we need to subtract   $   - \left( {1 + {y^2}} \right)  $   from   $   - {x^2} - {y^2} - 1  $  . That is

 $  = \left( { - {x^2} - {y^2} - 1} \right) - \left( { - \left( {1 + {y^2}} \right)} \right)  $ 

 $  =  - {x^2} - {y^2} - 1 - \left( { - 1 - {y^2}} \right)  $ 

 $   =  - {x^2} - {y^2} - 1 + 1 + {y^2}  $ 

 $   =  - {x^2}  $

$   = 12ab - 10{b^2} - 18{a^2} + 9ab + 12{b^2} + 14{a^2}  $  

$   = 12ab + 9ab - 10{b^2} + 12{b^2} - 18{a^2} + 14{a^2}  $  

$   = 21ab + 2{b^2} - 4{a^2}  $  

Now find the sum of   $  ab + 2{b^2}  $   and   $  3{b^2} - {a^2}  $  . That is

$  = ab + 2{b^2} + 3{b^2} - {a^2}  $ 

$  = ab + 5{b^2} - {a^2}  $  

Now subtract   $  21ab + 2{b^2} - 4{a^2}  $   from   $  ab + 5{b^2} - {a^2}  $  .

$  = \left( {ab + 5{b^2} - {a^2}} \right) - \left( {21ab + 2{b^2} - 4{a^2}} \right)  $ 

$  = ab + 5{b^2} - {a^2} - 21ab - 2{b^2} + 4{a^2}  $

Ans: We can solve this using the unitary method.

2x unit of tomatoes contains = 4 g carbohydrates.

Then y unit of tomato potato contains = \[2x \times 4\]g carbohydrates.

Similarly,

1 unit of apple contains = 14 g carbohydrates

Then y unit contains = \[14 \times y = 14y\,\,g\] carbohydrates.

Hence, the required expression is \[8x + 14y\]


74. Arjun bought a rectangular plot with length x and breadth y and then sold a triangular part of it whose base is y and height is z. Find the area of the remaining part of the plot. 

Ans: Given, 

Arjun bought a rectangular plot with length x and breadth y.

Then, Area of the rectangular plot =  length × breadth

\[ \Rightarrow x \times y = xy\]

Now, given that triangular part of it whose base is y and height is z 

Then the area of triangular part becomes 

\[ \Rightarrow \dfrac{1}{2} \times y \times z\]

\[ \Rightarrow \dfrac{1}{2}yz\]

Therefore 

Area of the remaining part of the plot = Area of the rectangular plot – Area of the triangular part.

\[ \Rightarrow \]Remaining area \[ = xy - \dfrac{1}{2}yz\]

\[ \Rightarrow \]Remaining area \[ = y\left( {x - \dfrac{1}{2}z} \right)\]


75. Amisha has a square plot of side m and another triangular plot with base and height each equal to m. What is the total area of both plots? 

Ans: Given that the side length of the square plot is m. 

Since it is a square all sides are equal.

Then the area of the square plot is = \[{m^2}\]

Ans: Given,

The side of one square flower bed is (x + 2) meters.

Then we know that the perimeter of the square figure is four times its side.

That is perimeter of one square flower bed \[ = 4 \times side = 4\left( {x + 2} \right)\,\]

Now there are 5 square flower beds. 

Then the perimeter of these 5 square flower beds is given by

\[ = 5 \times 4\left( {x + 2} \right)\,\]

\[ = 20\left( {x + 2} \right)\,\,meter\]

Given that the cost of fencing of 100 m is Rs. 50

Then cost of 1 m is \[ = Rs.\dfrac{{50}}{{100}}\]

Now the cost of \[20\left( {x + 2} \right)\,\,meter\] is 

\[ = 20\left( {x + 2} \right)\,\, \times Rs.\dfrac{{50}}{{100}}\]

\[ = 20\left( {x + 2} \right)\,\, \times Rs.\dfrac{1}{2}\]

\[ = Rs.10\left( {x + 2} \right)\,\,\]
