Expressions are defined as, numbers, symbols and operators (such as +. – , × and ÷) grouped together that show the value of something.
In algebra, a term is either a single number or variable, or numbers and variables multiplied together. Terms are separated by + or – signs or sometimes by division.
A coefficient is a number used to multiply a variable (2x means 2 times x, so 2 is a coefficient) Variables on their own (without a number next to them) actually have a coefficient of 1 (x is really 1x)

(a) What should be added to x2 + xy + y2 to obtain 2x2 + 3xy?
(b) What should be subtracted from 2a + 8b + 10 to get – 3a + 7b + 16?
(a) Let us assume p be the required term
Then,
p + (x2 + xy + y2) = 2x2 + 3xy
p = (2x2 + 3xy) – (x2 + xy + y2)
p = 2x2 + 3xy – x2 – xy – y2
p = 2x2 – x2 + 3xy – xy – y2
p = x2 + 2xy – y2
(b) Let us assume x be the required term
Then,
2a + 8b + 10 – x = -3a + 7b + 16
x = (2a + 8b + 10) – (-3a + 7b + 16)
x = 2a + 8b + 10 + 3a – 7b – 16
x = 2a + 3a + 8b – 7b + 10 – 16
x = 5a + b – 6
What should be taken away from 3x2 – 4y2 + 5xy + 20 to obtain – x2 – y2 + 6xy + 20?
Let us assume a be the required term
Then,
3x2 – 4y2 + 5xy + 20 – a = -x2 – y2 + 6xy + 20
a = 3x2 – 4y2 + 5xy + 20 – (-x2 – y2 + 6xy + 20)
a = 3x2 – 4y2 + 5xy + 20 + x2 + y2 – 6xy – 20
a = 3x2 + x2 – 4y2 + y2 + 5xy – 6xy + 20 – 20
a = 4x2 – 3y2 – xy

(vi) (3y2 + 5y – 4) – (8y – y2 – 4)
(i) When terms have the same algebraic factors, they are like terms.
Then,
= (21b + 7b – 20b) – 32
= b (21 + 7 – 20) – 32
= b (28 – 20) – 32
= b (8) – 32
= 8b – 32
(ii) When terms have the same algebraic factors, they are like terms.
Then,
= 7z3 + (-z2 + 13z2) + (-5z – 15z)

= 7z3 + z2 (12) + z (-20)
= 7z3 + 12z2 – 20z
(iii) When terms have the same algebraic factors, they are like terms.
Then,
= p – p + q – q – q + p
= p – q
(iv) When terms have the same algebraic factors, they are like terms.
Then,
= 3a – 2b – ab – a + b – ab + 3ab + b – a
= 3a – a – a – 2b + b + b – ab – ab + 3ab
= a (1 – 1- 1) + b (-2 + 1 + 1) + ab (-1 -1 + 3)
= a (1 – 2) + b (-2 + 2) + ab (-2 + 3)
= a (1) + b (0) + ab (1)
= a + ab
(v) When terms have the same algebraic factors, they are like terms.
Then,
= 5x2y + 3yx2 – 5x2 + x2 – 3y2 – y2 – 3y2
= x2y (5 + 3) + x2 (- 5 + 1) + y2 (-3 – 1 -3) + 8xy2
= x2y (8) + x2 (-4) + y2 (-7) + 8xy2
= 8x2y – 4x2 – 7y2 + 8xy2
(vi) When terms have the same algebraic factors, they are like terms.
Then,
= 3y2 + 5y – 4 – 8y + y2 + 4
= 3y2 + y2 + 5y – 8y – 4 + 4
= y2 (3 + 1) + y (5 – 8) + (-4 + 4)
= y2 (4) + y (-3) + (0)
= 4y2 – 3y

= – 7mn + 12mn + 9mn – 2mn + 5 + 2 – 8 – 3
= mn (-7 + 12 + 9 – 2) + (5 + 2 – 8 – 3)
= mn (- 9 + 21) + (7 – 11)
= mn (12) – 4
= 12mn – 4

= a – a + a + b + b – b – 3 + 3 + 3
= a (1 – 1 + 1) + b (1 + 1 – 1) + (-3 + 3 + 3)
= a (2 -1) + b (2 -1) + (-3 + 6)
= a (1) + b (1) + (3)

= 14x + 10y – 12xy – 13 + 18 – 7x – 10y + 8xy + 4xy
= 14x – 7x + 10y– 10y – 12xy + 8xy + 4xy – 13 + 18
= x (14 – 7) + y (10 – 10) + xy(-12 + 8 + 4) + (-13 + 18)
= x (7) + y (0) + xy(0) + (5)
= 7x + 5
(vi) When terms have the same algebraic factors, they are like terms.
Then, we have to add the like terms
= 5m – 7n + (3n – 4m + 2) + (2m – 3mn – 5)

= 5m – 4m + 2m – 7n + 3n – 3mn + 2 – 5
= m (5 – 4 + 2) + n (-7 + 3) – 3mn + (2 – 5)
= m (3) + n (-4) – 3mn + (-3)
= 3m – 4n – 3mn – 3

= 3p2q2 – 10p2q2 + 7p2q2 – 4pq + 9pq + 5 + 15
= p2q2 (3 -10 + 7) + pq (-4 + 9) + (5 + 15)
= p2q2 (0) + pq (5) + 20
= 5pq + 20

= x2 – x2 – x2 – y2 + y2 – y2 – 1 – 1 + 1
= x2 (1 – 1- 1) + y2 (-1 + 1 – 1) + (-1 -1 + 1)
= x2 (1 – 2) + y2 (-2 +1) + (-2 + 1)

(a) From the sum of 3x – y + 11 and – y – 11, subtract 3x – y – 11.
(b) From the sum of 4 + 3x and 5 – 4x + 2x2, subtract the sum of 3x2 – 5x and
–x2 + 2x + 5.
(a) First we have to find out the sum of 3x – y + 11 and – y – 11
= 3x – y + 11 + (-y – 11)
= 3x – y + 11 – y – 11
= 3x – y – y + 11 – 11
= 3x – 2y
Now, subtract 3x – y – 11 from 3x – 2y
= 3x – 2y – (3x – y – 11)
