# Q. 7.     Simplify these expressions and find their values if $x=3,a=-1,b=-2.$            (i)  $3x-5-x+9$            (ii)  $2-8x+4x+4$            (iii)  $3a+5-8a+1$            (iv) $10-3b-4-5b$            (v)  $2a-2b-4-5+a$

S Sayak

The expression is simplified as follows and also obtained their values

(i)

$\\ 3x - 5 - x + 9 \\= 2x + 4 \\= 2 \times 3 + 4 \\= 10$

(ii)

$\\ 2 - 8x + 4x + 4 \\= 6 - 4x \\= 6 - 4 \times 3 \\= -6$

(iii)

$\\3a + 5 - 8a + 1 \\= -5a + 6 \\= -5 \times ( -1 ) + 6 \\= 5 + 6 \\=11$

(iv)

$\\10 - 3b - 4 - 5b \\= 6 - 8b \\= 6 - 8 \times ( -2 ) \\= 6 + 16 \\= 22$

(v)

$\\2a - 2b - 4 - 5 + a \\= 3a - 2b - 9 \\= 3 \times ( -1 ) - 2 \times ( -2 ) - 9 \\= -3 + 4 - 9 \\= -8$
