**Question 1.** Give five examples of expressions containing one variable and five examples of expressions containing two variables.

**Solution:**

(a) Five examples containing one variable are:

(i) x – 4 (ii) 5 – y (iii) 2x + 5 (iv) 10x + 4 (v) 11 – z

(b) Five examples containing two variables are:

(i) 7x – 2y (ii) 5x + 2y – 10 (iii) 6x + z – 2 (iv) 15y – z (v) 9x – 10z

**Question 2. **Show on the number line x, x – 4, 2x + 1, 3x – 2.

**Solution:**

**Term, Factors and Coefficient**

Consider the expression 3x + 7. This expression is containing two terms, i.e. 3x and 7.

Terms are added to form expressions.

Now consider the expression 7x^{2} – 5xy. This expression contains two terms, i.e. 7x^{2} and –5xy.

The term 7x^{2} is a product of 7, x and x. or we say that 7, x and x are factors of the term 7x^{2}.

Also the term –5xy has the factors –5, x and y.

We know that a term is a product of its factors.

The numerical factor of term is called its coefficient. The expression 9xy – 7x has the two terms

9xy and –7x. The coefficient of the term 9xy is 9 and the coefficient of –7x is –7.

**Question:** Identify the coefficient of each term in the expression x^{2}y^{2} – 10x^{2}y + 5xy^{2} – 20.

**Solution:**

Coefficient of x^{2}y^{2} is 1.

Coefficient of x^{2}y is –10.

Coefficient of xy^{2} is 5.

**Monomials, Binomials and Polynomials**

An expression containting only one term is called monomial.

Examples: 2x, 3y, 4p, q, 3x^{2}, 4y^{2}, 7xy, – 9m, –3, 4xyz, etc.

An expression containing two terms is called binomial.

Examples: a + b, x – y, 2p + 4q, 3xy – 7yz, p^{2} – 3q^{2}, p^{2} – 3, a + 3, etc.

An expression containing three terms is called trinomial.

Examples: a + b + c, 4p + 9q – 3r, x^{2 }+ 4y^{2} – 3z^{2}, etc.

An expression containing one or more terms with non-zero coefficient of variables having nonnegative exponents is called a polynomial.

Examples: a + b + c + d, 4xy, –5z, 5xyz – 10p, 4x + 3y – 3z, etc.

**Question 2. **Classify the following polynomials as monomials, binomials, trinomials. Which polynomials do not fit in any of these three categories?

x + y, 1000, x + x^{2 }+ x^{3} + x^{4}, 7 + y + 5x, 2y – 3y^{2}, 2y – 3y^{2} + 4y^{3},

5x – 4y + 3xy, 4z – 15z^{2}, ab + bc + cd + da, pqr, p^{2}q + pq^{2}, 2p + 2q

**Solution: **

Monomials | Binomials | Trinomials |

1000 pqr | x + y 2y – 3y 4z – 15z p 2p + 2q | 7 + y + 5x 2y – 3y 5x – 4y + 3xy |

Following polynomials do not fit in any of these categories:

x + x^{2} + x^{3} + x^{2} [∵ It has 4 terms.]

ab + bc + cd + da [∵ It has 4 terms.]

**Question 3.** Add the following:

(i) ab – bc, bc – ca, ca – ab

(ii) a – b + ab, b – c + bc, c – a + ac

(iii) 2p^{2}q^{2} – 3pq + 4, 5 + 7pq – 3p^{2}q^{2}

**Solution:**

**Question 4.**

(a) Subtract 4a – 7ab + 3b + 12 from 12a – 9ab + 5b – 3.

(b) Subtract 3xy + 5yz – 7zx from 5xy – 2yz – 2zx + 10xyz.

(c) Subtract 4p^{2}q – 3pq + 5pq^{2} – 8p + 7q – 10

from 18 – 3p – 11q + 5pq – 2pq^{2} + 5p^{2}q.

**Solution:** For subtraction we rearrange the terms such that the like terms are in the same column. Then we change the sign of the terms to be subtracted. Next we add the terms.

**Product of Monomials**

**Note: **

**I. **When we multiply monomials the product is also a monomial

**II. **We use the rules for exponents and powers when we multiply variables.

**Example: **Find the product of 2x, 5xy and 7x.

**Solution: **2x * 5xy * 7z = (2 * 5 * 7) * (x * xy) * z

= 70 * (x^{2}y 8 z)

= 70 * x^{2}yz = 70x^{2}yz

**Question:** Find 4x * 5y * 7z. First find 4x * 5y and multiply it by 7z; or first find 5y * 7z and multiply it by 4x. Is the result the same? What do you observe? Does the order in which you carry out the multiplication matter?

**Solution:** We have:

4x * 5y * 7z = (4x * 5y) * 7z

= 20xy * 7z = 140xyz

Also 4x * 5y * 7z = 4x * (5y 8 7z)

= 4x * 35yz = 140xyz

We observe that

(4x * 5y) * 7x = 4x(5y * 7z)

∴ The product of monomials is associative, i.e. the order in which we multiply the monomials does not matter.
