# NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 12 Algebraic Expressions

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 12 Algebraic Expressions: An algebraic expression contains variables, numbers, and operations. In this article, you will get NCERT solutions for class 7 maths chapter 12 algebraic expressions. There are three types of algebraic expressions

• Monomial:-An algebraic expression with only one term is known as a monomial. Example: 2x, 3xy, 4xyz, etc.
• Binomial:- An algebraic expression with two, unlike terms, is known as binomial. Example: 2x+3xy
• Trinomial and Polynomials:- An algebraic expression with more than one unlike term is known as a polynomial. Example: 2x+3xy+4xyz+abc. Binomial and trinomial are also polynomial.

The terms containing the same algebraic factors (i.e those which contain variables) are like terms, for example, 3xy and 5xy are like terms since both have the algebraic factors (i.e those which contain variables) x and y. The term which contains different algebraic factors is unlike terms. For example, 2x and 3xy are unlike terms. In solutions of NCERT for class 7 maths chapter 12 algebraic expressions, you will get questions related to solving all three types of algebraic expressions. Also, you will learn the addition and subtraction of algebraic expression. If an algebraic expression contains the sum of more than one like terms they can be combined to form a single term. For example, 14x+6x+20y+10x can be added and can be written as 30x+20y. There are many problems in the CBSE NCERT solutions for class 7 maths chapter 12 algebraic expressions which will give more clarity of the concepts.

Question:1(i) Simplify combining like terms:

21b - 32 + 7b -20b

= (21 + 7 - 20)b -32

= 8b - 32

The simplified expression is 8b - 32.

Question:1(ii) Simplify combining like terms:

-z2 + 13z2 - 5z + 7z3 - 15z

= (-1 + 13)z2 + (-5 - 15)z +7z3

=12z2 - 20z + 7z3

The simplified expression is 12z2 - 20z + 7z3

Question:1(iii) Simplify combining like terms:

p - (p - q) - q - (q - p)

= p - p + q - q - q + p

= p - p + p + q - q -q

= p - q

The simplified expression is p - q.

Question:1(iv) Simplify combining like terms:

3a - 2b - ab - (a - b + ab) + 3ab + b - a

= 3a - 2b - ab - a + b - ab + 3ab + b - a

= (3 - 1 - 1)a + (-2 + 1 +1)b + (-1 - 1 + 3)ab

= a + ab

The simplified expression is a + ab.

Question:1(v) Simplify combining like terms:

5x2y - 5x2 + 3yx2 - 3y2 + x2 - y2 + 8xy2 - 3y2

= (5 + 3 )x2y + (-5 + 1)x2 + (-3 - 1 - 3)y2 + 8xy2

= 8x2y - 4x2 - 7y2 + 8xy2

The simplified expression is 8x2y - 4x2 - 7y2 + 8xy2

Question:1(vi) Simplify combining like terms:

(3y2 + 5y - 4) - (8y - y2 - 4)

= 3y2 + 5y - 4 - 8y + y2 + 4

= (3 + 1)y2 + (5 - 8)y - 4 + 4

= 4y2 - 3y

The simplified expression is 4y2 - 3y

Question:4(a) What should be added to to obtain

Let the term be a which must be added to x2 + xy + y2 to obtain 2x2 + 3xy

Question:4(b) What should be subtracted from   to get

Let the term be c which must be subtracted from 2a + 8b + 10 to get -3a + 7b + 16

5a + b - 6 must be subtracted from 2a + 8b + 10 to get -3a + 7b + 16

Let the term be a which must be taken away from 3x2 - 4y2 + 5xy + 20 to obtain -x2 - y2 + 6xy + 20

4x2 - 3y2 - xy must be taken away from 3x2 - 4y2 + 5xy + 20 to obtain -x2 - y2 + 6xy + 20

Question:6(a) From the sum of  and, subtract

On subtracting 3x - y - 11 from the sum of 3x - y + 11 and -y - 11 we get -y + 11

Question:6(b) From the sum of  and subtract the sum of and .

On subtracting the sum of and  from the sum of   and  we get
