= 5m – 4m + 2m – 7n + 3n – 3mn + 2 – 5
= m (5 - 4 + 2) + n (-7 + 3) – 3mn + (2 - 5)
= m (3) + n (-4) – 3mn + (-3)
= 3m – 4n – 3mn - 3

= x2 – y2 – 1 + y2 – 1 – x2 + 1 – x2 – y2
= x2 – x2 – x2 – y2 + y2 – y2 – 1 – 1 + 1
= x2 (1 – 1- 1) + y2 (-1 + 1 - 1) + (-1 -1 + 1)
= x2 (1 - 2) + y2 (-2 +1) + (-2 + 1)
= x2 (-1) + y2 (-1) + (-1)

3. Subtract:

(i) -5y2 from y2

y2 - (-5y2) = y2 + 5y2 = 6y2

(iii) (a - b) from (a + b)

(a + b)-(a -b) = a + b -a + b
= a - a + b + b = 2b

(iv) a (b - 5) from b (5 - a)

= b (5 - a)-a (b -5)
= 5b - ab - ab + 5a
= 5b - 2ab+5a
= 5a + 5b -2ab

(v) -m2 + 5mn from 4m2 - 3mn + 8

= 4m2 - 3mn + 8 - (- m2 + 5mn)
= 4m2 - 3mn + 8 + m2 - 5mn
= 4m2 + m2 - 3mn - 5mn + 8
= 5m2 - 8mn + 8

(vi) -x2 +10x - 5 from 5x-10

= 5x – 10 – (-x2 + 10x - 5)
= 5x – 10 + x2 – 10x + 5
= x2 + 5x – 10x – 10 + 5
= x2 – 5x - 5

(vii) 5a2 - 7ab + 5b2 from 3ab - 2a2 - 2b2

= 3ab – 2a2 – 2b2 – (5a2 – 7ab + 5b2)
= 3ab – 2a2 – 2b2 – 5a2 + 7ab – 5b2
= 3ab + 7ab – 2a2 – 5a2 – 2b2 – 5b2
= 10ab – 7a2 – 7b2

(viii) 4pq - 5q2 - 3p2 from 5p2 + 3q2 - pq

= 5p2 + 3q2 – pq – (4pq – 5q2 – 3p2)
= 5p2 + 3q2 – pq – 4pq + 5q2 + 3p2
= 5p2 + 3p2 + 3q2 + 5q2 – pq – 4pq
= 8p2 + 8q2 – 5pq

4. (a) What should be added to x2 +xy+y2 to obtain 2x2 +3xy ?

Then according to question,
x2 + xy + y2 + p = 2x2 + 3xy
⇒ p = 2x2 + 3xy - (x2 + xy + y2)
⇒ p = 2x2 + 3xy - x2 - xy - y2
⇒ p = 2x2 - x2- y2 +3xy - xy
⇒ p = x2 - y2 + 2xy
Hence, x2 - y2 + 2xy should be added.

(b) What should be subtracted from 2a + 8b+10 to get -3a + 7b + 16?

Let q should be subtracted.
Then according to question, 2a + 8b + 10-q = -3a + 7b + 16
⇒ -q = -3a +7b + 16 - (2a + 8b + 10)
⇒ -q = -3a + 7b + 16 - 2a - 8b - 10
⇒ - q = -3a - 2a + 7b - 8b + 16 - 10
⇒ -q = -5a - b + 6
⇒ q = - (- 5a - b + -6)
⇒ q = 5a + b - 6

5. What should be taken away from 3x2- 4y2 + 5xy + 20 to obtain - x2 - y2 + 6xy + 20 ?

Let q should be subtracted.
Then according to question,
3x2 - 4y2 + 5xy + 20 -q = -x2 - y2 + 6xy + 20
⇒ q = 3x2 - 4y2 + 5xy + 20 - (-x2 - y2 + 6xy + 20)
⇒ q = 3x2 - 4y2 + 5xy+ 20 + x2 + y2 - 6xy - 20
⇒ q = 3x2 + x2 - 4y2 +y2 + 5xy - 6xy + 20-20
⇒ q =  4x2 - 3y2 -  xy + 0
Hence, 4x2 -3y2 -xy should be subtracted.

6. (a) From the sum of 3x - y + 11 and - y - 11, subtract 3x - y - 11.

First we have to find out the sum of 3x – y + 11 and – y – 11
= 3x – y + 11 + (-y - 11)
= 3x – y + 11 – y – 11
= 3x – y – y + 11 – 11
= 3x – 2y
Now, subtract 3x – y – 11 from 3x – 2y
= 3x – 2y – (3x – y - 11)
= 3x – 2y – 3x + y + 11
= 3x – 3x – 2y + y + 11
= -y + 11

(b) From the sum of 4 + 3x and 5 - 4x + 2x2, subtract the sum of 3x2 - 5x and -x2 + 2x + 5.

First we have to find out the sum of 4 + 3x and 5 – 4x + 2x2
= 4 + 3x + (5 – 4x + 2x2)
= 4 + 3x + 5 – 4x + 2x2
= 4 + 5 + 3x – 4x + 2x2
= 9 - x + 2x2
= 2x2 – x + 9     … [equation 1]
Then, we have to find out the sum of 3x2 – 5x and – x2 + 2x + 5.

= 2 x 0 + 1+ 1 = 0 + 2 = 2

(iii) 2a2b + 2ab2 + ab = 2(0)2 (-1) + 2 (0 )(-1)2 + (0 )(-1)     [Putting a - 0,b = - 1]
= 0 + 0 + 0 = 0

(iv) a2 +ab + 2 - (0)2 + (0) (-1) + 2   [Putting a - 0,b = - 1]
= 0 + 0 + 2 = 2

6. Simplify the expressions and find the value if x is equal to 2:
(i) x + 7 + 4 (x- 5)
(ii) 3 (x + 2) + 5x - 7
(iii) 6x + 5 (x - 2)
(iv) 4 (2x - 1) + 3x + 11

(i) x + 7 + 4(x- 5) = x + 7 + 4x - 20 = x + 4 x + 7 - 20
= 5 x - 13 = 5 x 2 - 13                            [Putting x = 2]
= 10-13 = -3

(ii) 3 (x+ 2) + 5x - 7 = 3x + 6 + 5x -7 = 3x + 5x + 6 - 7
= 8x - 1 = 8 x 2-1                    [Putting x = -1]
= 16 - 1 = 15

(iii) 6x + 5 (x - 2) = 6x + 5x -10 = 11x - 10
= 11 x 2 - 10                      [Putting x = -1]
= 22 - 10 = 12

(iv) 4(2x - 1) + 3x + 11 = 8x - 4 + 3x +11 = 8x + 3a - 4 + 11
= 11a + 7 = 11 x 2 + 7 [Putting x = - 1]
= 22+7 = 29

7. Simplify these expressions and find their values if x = 3,a = -1, b = - 2 :
(i) 3x - 5 - x + 9
(ii) 2 - 8x + 4x + 4
(iii) 3a + 5 - 8a + 1
(iv) 10 - 3b - 4 - 5b
(v) 2a - 2b - 4 - 5 + a

(i) 3a - 5 - x + 9 = 3x - x - 5 + 9 = 2x + 4
= 2x3+4         [Putting a = 3]
= 6 + 4 = 10

(ii) 2 - 8x + 4x + 4 = - 8x + 4x + 2 + 4 = -4x + 6
= - 4 x 3 + 6     [Putting a = 3]
= -12 + 6 =12

(iii) 3a + 5 - 8a + 1 = 3a - 8a + 5 + 1 = - 5a + 6
= -5(- 1) + 6       [Putting a = - 1]
= 5 + 6 = 11

(iv) 10 - 3b - 4 - 5b = - 3b - 5b + 10 - 4 = -8b+6
= -8 (-2)+ 6    [Putting b = -2]
= 16 + 6 = 22

(v) 2a - 2b - 4 - 5 + a = 2a + a - 2b - 4 - 5
= 3a - 2b - 9 = 3 (-1)-2 (-2) -9    [Putting a = -1 , b = - 2]
= -3 + 4 -9 = -8

8. (i) If z = 10, find the value of z3 - 3 (z - 10).
(ii) If p = - 10, find the value of p2 - 2p - 100

(i) z3 -3(z-10) = (10)3-3(10 - 10)       [Putting z = 10]
= 1000 - 3 x 0 = 1000- 0
= 1000

(ii) p2 - 2p - 100 = (-10)2 - 2 (-10) - 100    (Putting p = - 10]
= 100+ 20 - 100 = 20

9. What should be the value of a if the value of 2x2 + x - a equals to 5, when x = 0 ?

Given: 2x2 + x - a = 5
⇒ 2 (0)2 + 0 - a = 5     [Putting x = 0]
⇒ 0 + 0 - a = 5
⇒ a = -5
Hence, the value of a is -5.

10. Simplify the expression and find its value when a = 5 and b = - 3: 2 (a2 + ab) + 3 - ab
