#### Question 2:

Evaluate the following products without multiplying directly:

(i) 103 × 107 (ii) 95 × 96 (iii) 104 × 96

#### Answer:

(i) 103 × 107 = (100 + 3) (100 + 7)

= (100)^{2} + (3 + 7) 100 + (3) (7)

[By using the identity, where

*x* = 100, *a* = 3, and *b* = 7]

= 10000 + 1000 + 21

= 11021

(ii) 95 × 96 = (100 − 5) (100 − 4)

= (100)^{2} + (− 5 − 4) 100 + (− 5) (− 4)

[By using the identity, where

*x* = 100, *a* = −5, and *b* = −4]

= 10000 − 900 + 20

= 9120

(iii) 104 × 96 = (100 + 4) (100 − 4)

= (100)^{2} − (4)^{2}

= 10000 − 16

= 9984

#### Question 7:

Evaluate the following using suitable identities:

(i) (99)^{3} (ii) (102)^{3} (iii) (998)^{3}

#### Answer:

It is known that,

(i) (99)^{3 }= (100 − 1)^{3}

= (100)^{3} − (1)^{3} − 3(100) (1) (100 − 1)

= 1000000 − 1 − 300(99)

= 1000000 − 1 − 29700

= 970299

(ii) (102)^{3} = (100 + 2)^{3}

= (100)^{3} + (2)^{3} + 3(100) (2) (100 + 2)

= 1000000 + 8 + 600 (102)

= 1000000 + 8 + 61200

= 1061208

(iii) (998)^{3}= (1000 − 2)^{3}

= (1000)^{3} − (2)^{3} − 3(1000) (2) (1000 − 2)

= 1000000000 − 8 − 6000(998)

= 1000000000 − 8 − 5988000

= 1000000000 − 5988008

= 994011992

#### Question 14:

Without actually calculating the cubes, find the value of each of the following:

(i)

(ii)

#### Answer:

(i)

Let *x* = −12, *y* = 7, and *z* = 5

It can be observed that,

*x* + *y* + *z* = − 12 + 7 + 5 = 0

It is known that if *x* + *y* + *z* = 0, then

∴

= −1260

(ii)

Let *x* = 28, *y* = −15, and *z* = −13

It can be observed that,

*x* + *y* + *z* = 28 + (−15) + (−13) = 28 − 28 = 0

It is known that if *x* + *y* + *z* = 0, then

#### Question 15:

Give possible expressions for the length and breadth of each of thefollowing rectangles, in which their areas are given:

#### Answer:

Area = Length × Breadth

The expression given for the area of the rectangle has to be factorised. One of its factors will be its length and the other will be its breadth.

(i)

Therefore, possible length = 5*a* − 3

And, possible breadth = 5*a* − 4

(ii)

Therefore, possible length = 5*y* + 4

And, possible breadth = 7*y* − 3

#### Question 16:

What are the possible expressions for the dimensions of the cuboids whose volumes are given below?

#### Answer:

Volume of cuboid = Length × Breadth × Height

The expression given for the volume of the cuboid has to be factorised. One of its factors will be its length, one will be its breadth, and one will be its height.

(i)

One of the possible solutions is as follows.

Length = 3, Breadth = *x*, Height = *x* − 4

(ii)

One of the possible solutions is as follows.

Length = 4*k*, Breadth = 3*y* + 5, Height = *y* − 1
