**Question 1.Use the given letters to write the answer.i. There are ‘a’ trees in the village Lat. If the number of trees increases every year by ’b‘. then how many trees will there be after ‘x’ years?ii. For the parade there are y students in each row and x such row are formed. Then, how many students are there for the parade in all ?iii. The tens and units place of a two digit number is m and n respectively. Write the polynomial which represents the two digit number.Solution:**

i. Number of trees in the village Lat = a

Number of trees increasing each year = b

∴ Number of trees after x years = a + bx

∴ There will be a + bx trees in the village Lat after x years.

ii. Total rows = x

Number of students in each row = y

∴ Total students = Total rows × Number of students in each row

= x × y

= xy

∴ There are in all xy students for the parade.

iii. Digit in units place = n

Digit in tens place = m

∴ The two digit number = 10 x digit in tens place + digit in units place

= 10m + n

∴ The polynomial representing the two digit number is 10m + n.

**Question 2.Add the given polynomials.i. x**

^{2}+ 7y + 5; 3y + 9; 3y

^{2}– 4y – 3Solution:

= 5y^{2} + 6y + 11

^{2}+ 2iii. 2y +1; y

^{2}– 2y + 3ySolution:

^{2}– 2x – 1) = 2x

^{3}– 4x

^{2}– 2x

ii. (x^{5} – 1) × (x^{3} + 2x^{2} + 2)

= x^{5} (x^{3} + 2x^{2} + 2) -1(x^{3} + 2x^{2} + 2)

= x^{8} + 2x^{7} + 2x^{5} – x^{3} – 2x^{2} – 2

**Question 5.Divide first polynomial by second polynomial and write the answer in the form ‘Dividend = Divisor x Quotient + Remainder’.i. x**

^{3}– 64; x – 4ii. 5x

^{5}+ 4x

^{4}– 3x

^{3}+ 2x

^{2}+ 2 ; x

^{2}– xSolution:

i. x

^{3}– 64 = x3 + 0x

^{2}+ 0x – 64

∴ Quotient = x

^{2}+ 4x + 16, Remainder = 0

Now, Dividend = Divisor x Quotient + Remainder

∴ x

^{3}– 64 = (x – 4)(x

^{2}+ 4x + 16) + 0

ii. 5x^{5} + 4x^{4} – 3x^{3} + 2x^{2} + 2 = 5x^{5} + 4x^{4} – 3x^{3} + 2x + 0x + 2

∴ Quotient = 5x^{3} + 9x^{2} + 6x + 8,

Remainder = 8x + 2

Now, Dividend = Divisor x Quotient + Remainder

∴ 5x^{5} + 4x^{4} – 3x^{3} + 2x^{2} + 2 = (x^{2} – x)(5x^{3} + 9x^{2} + 6x + 8) + (8x + 2)
