## Add subtract and multiply linear expressions worksheet - Solution

Question 1 :

Add 6a + 3 and 4a - 2.

Solution :

Adding linear expressions in horizontal method :

=   (6a + 3) + (4a - 2)

=   6a + 4a + 3 - 2

=  10a + 1

Adding linear expressions in vertical method : Question 2 :

Add 5y + 8 + 3z and 4y - 5

Solution :

Adding linear expressions in horizontal method :

=   (5y + 8 + 3z) + (4y - 5)

=   5y + 4y + 8 - 5 + 3z

=   9y + 3z + 3

Adding linear expressions in vertical method : Question 4 :

Subtract 6a - 3b from - 8a + 9b.

Solution :

Subtracting linear expressions in horizontal method:

=   (- 8a + 9b) -  (6a - 3b)

=   - 8a + 9b -  6a + 3b

=  -8a - 6a + 9b + 3b

=  -14a + 12b

Subtracting linear expressions in vertical method : Question 4 :

Subtract a² + b² - 3ab from a² + b² - 3ab

Solution :

Subtracting linear expressions in horizontal method:

=  (a² - b² - 3ab) - (a²+ b² - 3ab)

=  a² - b² - 3ab - a² - b² + 3ab

=  a² - a² - b² - b² - 3ab  + 3ab

=  - b² - b²

=  - 2b²

Subtracting linear expressions in vertical method : Question 5 :

Multiply (3a - 2b) (2p + 3q)

Solution :

By using distributive property we can multiply two polynomials.

=  (3a - 2b) (2p + 3q)

=  3a(2p + 3q) - 2b(2p + 3q)

=  6ap + 9aq - 4pb - 6qb

Since there is not like terms, we cannot combine any more.

Hence the answer is 6ap + 9aq - 4pb - 6qb.

Question 6 :

Multiply (3x - 7) (7x - 3)

Solution :

By using distributive property we can multiply two polynomials.

=  (3x - 7) (7x - 3)

=  3x(7x - 3) - 7(7x - 3)

=  21x² - 9x - 49x + 21

=  21x² - 58x + 21

Hence the answer is  21x² - 58x + 21. After having gone through the stuff given above, we hope that the students would have understood "Add subtract and multiply linear expressions worksheet"
