## NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Chapter 9 Algebraic Expressions and Identities

Chapter 9 Class 8 NCERT Solutions are very helpful in rectifying all those mistakes that can happen in the exams. Algebraic expressions are formed from the variables and constants.

• Expressions containing one, two or three terms are called monomial, binomial and trinomial respectively.

• The terms having the same literal factors are called like terms, otherwise they are called unlike terms.

• An identity is an equality, which is true for all values of the variables in the equality. The standard identities are:
(a + b)2 = a2 + 2ab + b2
(a – b)2 = a2 – 2ab + b2
(a + b)(a – b) = a2 – b2
(x + a)(x + b) = x2 + (a + b)x + ab

FAQ on Chapter 9 Algebraic Expressions and Identities

#### How many exercises in Chapter 9 Algebraic Expressions and Identities?

There are total 5 exercises in the Chapter 9 that will make you aware of all those concepts embedded in the questions. These NCERT Solutions are updated as per the latest guidelines by CBSE.

#### Identify the variable and constant in the expression 24 – x.

In the expression above, 24 is the constant and x is the variable since 24 is fixed and cannot change its value whereas x can be anything.

#### The length and breadth of a rectangle are 3x2 – 2 and 2x + 5 respectively. Find its area.

Here,
Length = 3x2 – 2
∴  Area = (Length) × (Breadth)
= (3x2 – 2) × (2x + 5)
= 3x2(2x + 5) + (–2)(2x + 5)
= (3x2 × 2x) + (5 × 3x2) + [(–2) × 2x + (–2) × 5]
= 6x3 + 15x2 + (–4x) + (–10) = 6x3 + 15x2 – 4x – 10
Thus, the required area of the rectangle is 6x3 + 15x2 – 4x – 10 sq. units.

#### Verify the identity (x + a)( x + b) = x2 + (a + b)x + ab for a = 2, b = 3 and x = 4,

We have
(x + a)(x + b) = x2 + (a + b)x + ab
Puting x = 2, b = 3 and x = 4, we have
LHS = (x + a)(x + b)
= (4 + 2)(4 + 3)
= 6 × 7 = 42
RHS = x2 + (a + b)x + ab
= (4)2 + (2 + 3)4 + (2 * 3)
= 16 + 5 × 4 + 6
= 16 + 20 + 6 = 42
i.e. LHS = RHS
Thus, the given identity is true for the given values.
