Question 1.

Describe expressions are obtained:

(i) 7xy + 5

(ii) x²y

(iii) 4x² – 5x

Solution:

(i) 7xy + 5

To obtain this expression, we first multiply two variables x and y, i.e. x × y = xy.

Then we multiply their product by 7 to get 7xy.

Next, we add 5 to 7xy to obtain 7xy + 5.

(ii) x²y

First, x is multiplied by itself i.e., x × x = x²

Then multiply x² by y to get the required expression, i.e. x² × y = x²y

(iii) 4x² – 5x

Here, the variable x is multiplied by itself, i.e. x × x = x²

Then x² is multiplied by 4, i.e. x² x 4 = 4x²

Next, we multiply the variable x by 5, i.e. x × 5 = 5x

Now, we subtract 5x from 4x² to get 4x² – 5x

Question 1.

What are the terms in the following expressions? Show how the terms are formed. Draw a tree diagram for each expression:

(i) 8y + 3x²

(ii) 7mn – 4

(iii) 2x²y

Solution:

(i) 8y + 3x²

Terms of 8y + 3x² are 8y and 3x²

The term 8y is formed by multiplying the variable y by 8.

The term 3x² is formed by first multiplying the variable x with itself to get x × x = x² and then multiplying x² by 3.

Tree diagram:

(ii) 7mn

Terms of 7mn – 4 are 7mn and – 4.

The term 7mn formed by first multiplying variables m and n to get m x n = mn

Then multiplying mn by constant 7 to get 7 x mn = 7mn. The term – 4 is a constant.

Tree diagram:

(iii) 2x²y

This expression has only one term, i.e. 2x²y. To form this term first we multiply the variable x by itself to get x × x = x².

Then the variable y is multiplied by x² to get y × x² = x²y

Next, the product x1y is multiplied by 2 to get 2 × x²y = 2x²y

Question 2.

Write tree expressions each having 4 terms.

Solution:

(i) 2x^{3} – 4x² + 9xy + 8

(ii) 6x^{3} + 9y² – 3xy² – 12

(iii) 9x² – 3x + 12xy – 1

Question 1.

Identify the coefficients of the terms of following expressions:

(i) 4x – 3y

(ii) a + b + 5

(iii) 2y + 5

(iv) 2xy

Solution:

(i) 4x – 3y

The coefficient of x in 4x is 4.

The coefficient of y in – 3y is (- 3).

(ii) a + b + 5

The coefficient of a is 1.

The coefficient of b is 1.

The coefficient of 5 is 1.

(iii) 2y + 5

The coefficient of y in 2y is 2.

The coefficient of 5 is 1.

(iv) 2xy

The coefficient of xy in 2xy is 2.

The coefficient of y in 2xy is 2x.

The coefficient of y in 2xy is 2y.

Question 1.

Add and subtract:

(i) m – n, m + n

(ii) mn + 5 – 2, mn + 3

Solution:

(i) Adding (m – n) and (m + n), we have:

(m – n) + (m + n) = m – n + m + n

Collecting like terms, we have:

(m + m) + (-n + n) = (1 + 1)m + (-1 + 1)n

= 2 m + (0)n

= 2m

Now subtracting (m – n) from (m + n), we have:

= (m + n) – (m – n)

= m + n – m + n

= (m – m) + (n + n)

= (1 – 1 )m + (1 + 1)n

= 0m + 2n

= 2 n

(ii) Adding mn + 5 – 2 and mn + 3, we have:

(mn + 5 – 2) + (mn + 3)

= mn + 5 – 2 + mn + 3

= (mn + mn) + (5 – 2 + 3)

= (1 + 1 )mn + (6)

= 2mn + 6

Now, subtracting (mn + 3) from (mn + 5 – 2), we have:

(mn + 5 – 2) – (mn + 3)

= mn + 5 – 2 – mn – 3

= (mn – mn) + (5 – 2 – 3)

= (0)mn + 0 = 0 + 0 = 0
