Solutions for Practice Questions

Problem 1 :

Expand (x - 2y)3

Solution :

Here a  =  x and b  =  2y

(x-2y)2  =  x2 - 3 x2 (2y) + 3 x (2y)2 - (2y)3

=  x2 - 6 x2 y + 3 x (22y2) - (23y3)

=  x2 - 6 x2 y + 12 x y2 - 8 y3

Problem 2 :

Expand (2a - b)³

Solution :

Here a  =  2a and b  =  b

(2a-b)3  =  (2a)3 - 3 (2a)2 (b) + 3 (2a)b2 - b3

=  (23a3) - 3 (22a2) (b) + 3 (2a)(b)2 - (b)3

=  8a3 - 12 a2b + 6 ab2 - b3

Problem 3 :

Expand (3S - T)³

Solution :

here a = 3S and b = T

(3S-T)3  =  (3S)3 - 3(3S)2 T + 3(3S)T2 - T3

=  (33S3) - 3 (32S2)T + 3 (3S)T2 - T3

=  27S3 - 3 (9S2)T + 3 (3S)T2 - T3

=  27S3 - 27S2T + 9 S T2 - T3

Problem 4 :

Expand (V - 5Q)3

Solution :

Here a  =  V and b  =  5Q

(V - 5Q)3  =  V3 - 3 V2 (5Q) + 3 V(5Q)2 - (5Q)3

= V3 - 3 V2 (5Q) + 15 VQ2 - (53Q3)

= V3 - 15 V2 Q + 15 V Q2 - 125 Q3

Problem 5 :

Expand (4T - Q)³

Solution :

Here a  =  4T and b  =  Q

(4T-Q)3  =   (4T)3 - 3 (4T)2 (Q) + 3 (4T)(Q)2 - Q3

=  (43T3) - 3 (42T2)(Q) + 3 (4T)Q2 - Q3

=  64 T3 - 3 (16 T2)(Q) + 12 T Q2 - Q3

= 64 T3 - 48 T2Q + 12 T Q2 - Q3

Problem 6 :

Expand (5p - q)³

Solution :

Here a = 5p and b = q

(5p - q)3 = (5p)3 - 3 (5p)2 (q) + 3 (5p)(q)2 - (q)3

=  (53p3) - 3 (52p2) (q) + 15 p q2 - q3

= 125 p3 - 75 p2q + 15 p q2 - q3
