### Solved Questions of Algebraic Expressions

1. Which of the following is equivalent to the expression 4x2 - 12x + 9?

a) (2x - 3)2
b) (2x - 3) (2x + 3)
c) (2x - 3)3
d) (2x - 3) (2x2 + 3)

Explanation: We have, 4x2 - 12x + 9,
4x2 - 12x + 9 = (2x)2 – 2 x (2x) x 3 + 32

Which satisfied, a2 – 2ab + b2 = (a – b)2 where a = 2 and b = 3
i.e., 4x2 - 12x + 9 = (2x – 3)2

2. What is the degree of the polynomial 3x3 + 5x2 - 2x + 1?

a) 1
b) 2
c) 3
d) 4

Explanation: The degree of an algebraic expression is the highest power of the variables. Hence the degree of the expression is 3.

3. Which of the following is equivalent to the expression x2 + 2x + 1?

a) (2x - 3)2
b) (2x + 3)2
c) (x - 1)2
d) (x + 1)2

Explanation: We have, x2 + 2x + 1,
x2 + 2x + 1 = x2 + 2 × x × 1 + 12

Which satisfied, a2 + 2ab + b2 = (a + b)2 where a = x and b = 1
i.e., x2 + x + 1 = (x + 1)2

4. Which is the simplified form of the expression (2x – 5) (3x2 + 7x)?

a) x3 - x2 - 5x
b) 5x3 - 6x2 + 5x
c) 6x3 - x2 - 35x
d) 6x3 + x2 - 5x

Answer: c) 6x3 - x2 - 35x

Explanation: we have, (2x - 5) (3x2 + 7x)
= 2x (3x2 + 7x) – 5(3x2 + 7x)
= (6x3 + 14x2) - (15x2 + 35x)
= 6x3 + (14x2 - 15x2) - 35x
= 6x3 - x2 - 35x

5. What is the simplified form of the expression (x3 - 1) / (x - 1)?

a) x2 - x +1
b) x2 + x +1
c) x2 + x -1
d) x2 - x -1

Answer: b) x2 + x +1

Explanation: we have, (x3 - 1) / (x - 1)
which follows a3 - b3 = (a - b) (a2 + ab + b2)
= (x - 1) (x2 + x + 1) / (x - 1)
= x2 + x + 1
