**Question **3.

Anuradha is drawing a dot Rangoli (a beautiful pattern of lines joining dots). She has 8 dots in a row. How many dots will her Rangoli have for r rows? How many dots are there if there are 12 rows?

**Answer**

∵ Numbers of dots in 1 row = 8

∴ Number of dots in r rows = 8 × r = 8

Number of dots in 12 rows = 12 × 8 = 96

**Question 4**

Anu and Meenu are sisters. Anu is 5 years younger than Meenu. Can you write Anu’s age in terms of Meenu’s age? Take Meenu’s age as x years.

**Answer**

Yes! we can write Anu’s age in terms of Meenu’s age.

Age of Meenu = x

∵ Anu is 5 years younger than Meenu

∴ Age of Anu = (x – 5) years

**Question 5**

Oranges are to be transferred from larger boxes to smaller boxes. When a larger box is empited, the oranges from it fill 3 samller boxes and still 7 oranges are left. If the number of oranges in a small box are taken to be x, then what is the number of oranges in the larger box? .

#### Answer

Let the number of oranges in a smaller box be x.

∴ Number of oranges in three smaller boxes = 3x

Number of oranges remained outside = 7

∴ Number of oranges in the larger box = 3x + 7

(5 × 2) – (3 × -5) = 10 + 15 = 25

(iii) a + 2b – 5c, a =2,b = -3, c = 1

2 + (2 × -3) -5 × (1)

= 2 – 6 – 5 = -9

(iv) 2p + 3q + 4r + pqr, p = -1, q = 2, r = 3

= (2 × -1) + (3 × 2) + (4 × 3) + (-1) × 2 × 3

= -2 + 6 + 12 – 6= 10

(v) 3ab + 4bc – 5ca, a = 4, b = 5, c = -2 (3 × 4 × 5) + (4 × 5 × -2) -5 × -2 × 4

(iv) 2x^{4} – 5x^{3} + 7x – 3 when x = -3

#### Answer

(i) 2x^{2} – 3x + 4, x = 2

= 2 × (2)^{2} -3x^{2} + 4

= 8 – 6 + 4 = 6

(ii) 4x^{3} – 5x^{2} – 6x + 7, x = 3

= 4(3)^{3} – 5(3)^{2} – 6(3) + 7

= 108 – 45 – 18 + 7 = 52

(iii) 3x^{3} + 9x^{2} – x + 8, x = -2

= 3(-2)^{3} + 9(-2)^{2} – (-2) + 8

= -24 + 36 + 2 + 8 = 22

(iv) 2x^{4} – 5x^{3} + 7x – 3, x = -3

= 2(-3)^{4} – 5(-3)^{3} + 7(-3) – 3

= 162 + 135 – 21 – 3 = 273

= 6 – 175 = -169

(ii) 3(5)^{2} + 8(5) – 10

= 3(25) + 40 – 10

= 75 + 40 – 10 = 75 + 30 = 105

(iii) 2(5)^{3} – 4(5)^{2} – 6(5) + 25

= 2(125) – 4(25) – 30 + 25

#### Answer

a = 2,b = 3,c = -2

a^{2} + b^{2} + c^{2} – 2ab – 2bc – 2ca + 3abc

= (2)^{2} + (3)^{2} + (-2)^{2} – 2 × 2 × 3 – 2 × 3 × – 2 – 2 × -2 × 2 + 3 × 2 × 3 × -2

= 4 + 9 + 4 – 12 + 12 + 8 – 36

= 25 – 36 = -11

(iv) 16 – 3x = 5x when x = 2.

#### Answer

(i) The value of 3x – 2 is 1 when x = 0. False

Correct :

∵ 3 × 0 – 2 = -2

(ii) The value of 2x^{2} – x – 3 is 0 when x = -1. True

2(-1 )^{2} – (-1) – 3

= 2 + 1 – 3 = 0

(iii) p^{2} + q^{2} = r^{2} when p = 5, q = 12 and r = 13. True

(5)^{2} + (12)^{2} = (13)^{2}

= 25 + 144 = 169

⇒ 169= 169

(iv) 16 – 3x = 5x when x = 2. True

16 – 3x^{2} = 5x^{2}

16 – 6 = 10

⇒ 10 = 10

**Question 10**

For x = 2 and y = -3, verify the following:

(i) (x + y)^{2} = x^{2} + 2xy + y^{2}

(ii) (x – y)^{2} = x^{2} – 2xy + y^{2}

(iii) x^{2} – y^{2} = (x + y) (x – y)

(iv) (x + y)^{2} = (x – y)^{2} + 4xy

(v) (x + y)^{3} = x^{3} + y^{3} + 3x^{2}y + 3xy^{2}

#### Answer

x = 2, y = -3

(i) (x + y)^{2} = x^{2} + 2xy + y^{2}

L.H.S. = (x + y)^{2} = (2 – 3)^{2} = (-1)^{2} = 1

R.H.S. = x^{2} + 2xy + y^{2}

= (2)^{2} + 2 × 2 (-3) + (-3)^{2}

= 4 – 12 + 9 = 13 – 12 = 1

L.H.S. = R.H.S.

(ii) (x – y)^{2} = x^{2} – 2xy + y^{2}

L.H.S. = (x – y)^{2} = [2 – (-3)]^{2}

= (2 + 3)^{2} = (5)^{2} = 25

R.H.S. = x^{2} – 2xy + y^{2}

= (2)^{2} – 2 × 2 × (-3) + (-3)^{2}

= 4 + 12 + 9 = 25

∴ L.H.S. = R.H.S.

(iii) x^{2} – y^{2} = (x + y)(x – y)

L.H.S. = (x)^{2} – (y)^{2} = (2)^{2} – (-3)^{2}

= 4 – 9 = -5

R.H.S. = (x + y)(x – y)

= (2 – 3) [2 – (-3)]

= (2 – 3) (2 + 3) = -1 × 5 = -5

∴ L.H.S. = R.H.S.

(iv) (x + y)^{2} = (x – y)^{2} + 4xy

L.H.S. = (x + y)^{2} = [2 + (-3)]^{2}

= (2 – 3)^{2} = (-1)^{2} = 1

R.H.S. = (x – y)^{2} + 4xy

= [2 – (-3)]^{2} + 4 × 2 × (-3)

= (2 + 3)^{2} + 4 × 2 × (-3)

= (5)^{2} – 24 = 25 – 24 = 1

∴ L.H.S. = R.H.S.

(v) (x + y)^{3} = x^{3} + y^{2} + 3x^{2}y + 3xy^{2}

L.H.S. = (x + y)^{3} = [2 + (-3)]^{3} = (2 – 3)^{3}

= (-1)^{3} = (-1) × (-1) × (-1) = -1

R.H.S. = x^{3} + y^{3} + 3x^{2}y + 3xy^{2}

= (2)^{3} + (-3)^{3} + 3 (2)^{2} (-3) + 3 × 2 (-3)^{2}

=8 – 27 + 3 × 4 × (-3) + 6 (9)

= 8 – 27 – 36 + 54 = 62 – 63 = -1

∴ L.H.S. = R.H.S.

#### Multiple Choice Question** (MCQ), Algebra Class-6 ML Aggarwal**

**Question 3**

**Choose the correct answer from the given four options (3 to 19): **Question 3.

I think of a number x, add 5 to it. The result is then multiplied by 2 and the final result is 24. The correct algebraic statement is

(a) x + 5 × 2 = 24

(b) (x + 5) × 2 = 24

(c) 2 × x + 5 = 24

(d) x + 5 = 2 × 24

#### Answer

Let number = x

Add 5 to the number

⇒ i.e. x + 5

Now multiply result with 2

i.e. (x + 5) × 2

Now, final result is 24

i.e. (x + 5) × 2 = 24 (b)

**Question 4**

Which of the following is an equation?

(a) x + 5

(b) 7x

(c) 2y + 3 = 11

**Question 5**

If each matchbox contains 48 matchsticks, then the number of matchsticks required to fill n such boxes is

(i) 48 + n

(b) 48 – n

(c) 48 ÷ n

(d) 48n

#### Answer

Matchstick required to fill 1 matchbox

= 48 × 1 = 48

Matchstick required to fill 2 matchbox

= 48 × 2 = 96

Matchstick required to fill 3 matchbox

= 48 × 3 – 144

∴ Matchstick required to fill n matchbox

= 48 n (d)

**Question 6**

(a) ₹(31x – y)

(b) ₹31(x – y)

(c) ₹31 (x + y)

(d) ₹31 (y – x)

#### Answer

Earning of Arshad for 1 day = ₹ x

Spending of Arshad for 1 day = ₹ y

Saving for 1 day = ₹(x – y)

Saving for 31 days = ₹31 (x – y) (b)

If the length of a rectangle is 3 times its breadth and the breadth is x units, then its perimeter is

(a) 4x units

(b) 6x units

(c) 8x units

(d) 10x units

#### Answer

Breadth of rectangle = x units

Length of rectangle = 3(Breadth) = 3x

Perimeter of rectangle = 2(l + b)

= 2(3x + x)

= 2(4x) = 8x units (c)

**Question 14**

Rashmi has a sum of ₹ x. She spend ₹800 on grocery, ₹600 on cloths and ₹500 on education and received as ₹200 as a gift. How much money (in ₹) is left with her?

(a) x – 1700

(b) x – 1900

(c) x + 200

(d) x – 2100

#### Answer

Total money = ₹ x

Money spent = ₹800 on grocery

Money spent = ₹600 on cloths .

Money spent = ₹500 on education

Money left with Rashmi

= x – ₹800 + ₹600 + ₹500

= x – 1900

She received a gift of = ₹200

∴ Money left = x – 1900 + 200

= x – 1700 (a)

#### Answer

**Question 2**

Write an algebraic expression for each of the following:

(i) If 1 metre cloth costs ₹ x, then what is cost of 6 metre cloth?

(ii) If the cost of a notebook is ₹ x and the cost of a book is ₹ y, then what is the cost of 5 notebooks and 2 books?

(iii) The score of Ragni in Mathematics is 23 more than two-third of her score in English. If she scores x marks in English, what is her score in Mathematics?

(iv) If the length of a side of a regular pentagon is x cm, then what is the perimeter of the pentagon?

#### Answer

(i) Cost of 1 metre cloth = ₹ x

Cost of 6 metre cloth = ₹ x × 6 = ₹6x

(ii) Cost of 1 notebook = ₹ x

Cost of 1 book = ₹y

Cost of 5 notebooks = 5 × (₹x) = ₹5x

Cost of 2 books = (₹y) × 2 = ₹2y

Total cost of 5 notebooks and 2 books = ₹(5x + 2y)

(iii) Score of Ragni in English = x marks

Score of Ragni in Mathematics = 23 more than two-third of her score in English

i.e. =

=

(iv) Side of regular pentagon = x cm

Perimeter of pentagon = 5 × Side = 5x cm

**Question 3**

When x = 4 and y = 2, find the value of:

(i) x + y

(ii) x – y

(iii) x^{2} + 2

(iv) x^{2} – 2xy + y^{2}

#### Answer

(i) x + y

Put x = 4 and y = 2

We get,

⇒ 4 + 2 = 6

(ii) x – y

Put x = 4, y = 2

We get,

⇒ 4 – 2 = 2

(iii) x^{2} + 2

Put x = 4 We get,

⇒ (4)^{2} + 2

= 16 + 2= 18

(iv) x^{2} – 2xy + y^{2}

Put x = 4 and y = 2

**Question 4**

When a = 3 and b = -1, find the value of 2a^{3} – b^{4} + 3a^{2}b^{3}.

#### Answer

2a^{3} – b^{4} + 3a^{2}b^{3}

Put the value of a = 3, b = -1

= 2(3)^{3} – (-1)^{4} + 3(3)^{2} (-1)^{3}

= 2 × 3 × 3 × 3 – (-1) × (-1) × (-1) × (-1) + 3 × 3 × 3 × (-1) × (-1) × (-1)

= 54 – 1 – 27 = 26

**Question 5**

When a = 3, b = 0, c = -2, find the values of:

(i) ab + 2bc + 3ca + 4abc

(ii) a^{3} + b^{3} + c^{3} – 3abc

#### Answer

(i) ab + 2bc + 3ca + 4abc

Put the values of a = 3, b = 0, c = -2

3 × 0 + 2 × 0 × -2 + 3 × -2 × 3 + 4 × 3 × 0 × -2

= 0 + 0 – 18 + 0 = -18

(ii) a^{3} + b^{3} + c^{3} – 3abc

Put the values of a = 3, b = 0, c

= -2 (3)^{3} + (0)^{3} + (-2)^{3} – 3 × 3 × 0 × -2

= 27 + 0 – 8 – 0 = 19
