Ans:
The other letters which give us the same rule as L are T, V and X because the number of matchsticks required to make each of them is 2.

Q5: Fill in the blanks:
(a) The value of 2x – 12 is zero, when x = ________.
(b) The product of 2 and x is being added to the product of 3 and y is expressed as ________.
(c) The numerical coefficient of the terms  is _________.
(d) The no. of terms in the expression  is ______.
Ans: (a)
6;
(b) 2x + 3y;

(d) 4

Q6: The teacher distributes 4 pencils per student. Can you tell how many pencils are needed for given number of students? (Use s for the number of students.)
Ans:
Let the number of pencils be ‘s’.
As, the number of pencils distributed to each student = 4
Thus, No. of pencils for ‘s’ students = 4 x s = 4s.

Q7: The length of a rectangular hall is 4 meters less than 3 times the breadth of the hall. What is the length, if the breadth is b meters?
Ans:
breadth of a rectangular hall = b meters
let length of a rectangular hall be ‘l’ meter
according to the question, l = 3 times the breadth – 4 = 3b – 4.

Q8: Radha is drawing a dot Rangoli (a beautiful pattern of lines joining dots with chalk powder. She has 10 dots in a row. How many dots will her Rangoli have for r rows?
Ans:
Let the total number of rows be ‘r’.
As, No. Of dots in a row = 10.
So, the dots needed for 10 rows = r x 10 = 10r.

Q9: Find the value of the expression 2x – 3y + 4z, if x = 10, y = -12 and z = 11.
Ans:
Given expression = 2x – 3y + 4z
If x = 10, y = -12 and z = 11,
The expression becomes, (2 × 10) – (3 × –12) + (4 × 11)
= 20 – (-36) + 44
= 20 + 36 + 44
= 100.

Q10: The teacher distributes 5 pencils per student. Can you tell how many pencils are needed, given the number of students ? (Use s for number of students.)
Ans:
Number of pencils to be distributed to each student = 5
And, let the number of students in class be ‘s’.
As per the logic, Number of pencils needed = (Number of students in the class) x (Number of pencils to be distributed to one student )
So, Number of pencils needed = 5 x s = 5s.

Q11: Rearrange the terms of the following expressions in ascending order of powers of x:
5x2, 2x, 4x4, 3x3, 7x5
Ans:
If the given terms are arranged in the ascending order of powers of x, we get, 2x, 5x2, 3x3, 4x4, 7x5.

Q12: State whether the following statements are true or false:
(a) The parts of an algebraic exponent which are connected by + or – sign are called its terms.
(b) 5 times x subtracted from 8 times y is 5x - 8y.
(c) A number having fixed value is called variable.
(d) The numerical coefficient of -2x2y is -2.

Ans: (a) True
(b) False
(c) False
(d) True

Q13: Match the following:
Ans:

Q14: The _______ of the variable in an equation which satisfies the equation is called a solution to the equation.
Ans:
value, It is correct because the value of the variable must satisfy the equation.

Q15: Which of the following is expression with one variable?
x + y + z, y + 1, 1, x + y – 5
Ans:
y + 1, The equation has one variable as “y” whose value is not known. therefore, the equation is in one variable.
