RD Chapter 4- Algebraic Identities Ex-4.2 Interview Questions Answers

Question 1 : Write the following in the expanded form:

Answer 1 :


Question 2 : If a + b + c = 0 and a2 + b2 + c2 = 16, find the value of ab + be + ca.

Answer 2 :

a + b+c = 0
Squaring both sides,
(a + b + c)2 = 0
a2 +b2 + c2 + 2(ab + bc + ca) = 0
16 + 2(ab + bc + c) = 0
2(ab +bc + ca) = -16
 ab + bc + ca =-162 =-8
ab +bc + ca = -8

Question 3 : If a2 + b2 + c2 = 16 and ab + bc + ca = 10, find the value of a + b + c.

Answer 3 :

(a + b + c)2 = a2 + b2 +c2 + 2(ab + bc + ca)
= 16 + 2 x 10
= 16 + 20 = 36
= (±6)2
a + b + c =±6

Question 4 : If a + b + c = 9 and ab + bc + ca = 23, find the value of a2 + b2 + c2.

Answer 4 :

(a + b + c)2 =a2 + b2 + c2 + 2(ab + bc + ca)
(9)2 = a2 + b2 +c2 + 2 x23
 81= a2 +b2 + c2 + 46
  a2 + b2 +c2 = 81 – 46 = 35
 a2 + b2 + c2 =35

Question 5 : Find the value of 4x2 + y2 + 25z2 + 4xy – 10yz – 20zx when x = 4, y = 3 and z = 2.

Answer 5 :

x = 4, y – 3, z = 2
 4x2 + y2 +25z2 + 4xy – 10yz – 20zx
= (2x)2 + (y)2 + (5z)2 + 2 x2 xx y-2 x y x 5z – 2 x 5z x 2x
= (2x + y- 5z)2
= (2 x 4 + 3- 5 x 2)2
= (8 + 3- 10)2
= (11 – 10)2
= (1)2 = 1

Question 6 : Simplify:
(i)  (a + b + c)2 + (a – b + c)2
(ii) (a + b + c)2 –  (a – b + c)2
(iii) (a + b + c)2 +   (a – b + c)2 +(a + b – c)2
(iv) (2x + p – c)2 – (2x – p + c)2
(v) (x2 + y2 – z2)2 –(x2 – y2 + z2)2

Answer 6 :
