## Solutions for Practice Questions

Problem 1 :

Expand (x+y+z)²

Solution :

a  =  x, b  =  y and c  =  z

(x+y+z)=  x2+y2+z2+2xy+2yz+2zx

Problem 2 :

Expand (2a+b+c)²

Solution :

a  =  2a, b  =  b and c  =  c

(2a+b+c)²  =  (2a)2+b2+c2+2(2a)(b)+2bc+2c(2a)

=  4a2+b2+c2+4ab+2bc+4ca

Problem 3 :

Expand (2a-b-c)²

Solution :

a  =  2a, b  =  -b and c  =  -c

(2a-b-c)²  =  (2a)2+b2+c2+2(2a)(-b)+2(-b)(-c)+2(-c)(2a)

=  4a2+b2+c2-4ab-2bc-4ca

Problem 4 :

Expand (2a + 3b + 4c)²

Solution :

a  =  2a, b  =  3b and c  =  4c

=  (2a)2+(3b)2+(4c)2+2(2a)(3b)+2(3b)(4c)+2(4c)(2a)

=  4a2+9b2+16c2+12ab+24bc+16ca

Problem 5 :

Expand (3p-2r+s)²

Solution :

a  =  3p, b  =  -2r and c  =  s

=  (3p)2+(-2r)2+s2+2(3p)(-2r)+2(-2r)s+2s(3p)

=  9p2+4r2+s2-12pr-4rs+6sp

Problem 6 :

Expand (p+3q+s)²

Solution :

a  =  p, b  =  3q and c  =  s

=  p2+(3q)2+s2+2(p)(3q)+2(3q)s+2s(p)

=  p2+9q2+s2+6pq+6qs+2sp
