Practice Set 3.1 Algebra 9th Std Maths Part 1 Answers Chapter 3 Polynomials

Question 1.
State whether the given algebraic expressions are polynomials? Justify.
i. y + $$\frac { 1 }{ y }$$
ii. 2 – 5√x
iii. x2 + 7x + 9
iv. 2m-2 + 7m – 5
v. 10
i. No, because power of v in the term 5√x is -1 (negative number).
ii. No, because the power of x in the term 5√x is
i. e. 0.5 (decimal number).
iii. Yes. All the coefficients are real numbers. Also, the power of each term is a whole number.
iv. No, because the power of m in the term 2m-2 is -2 (negative number).
v. Yes, because 10 is a constant polynomial.

Question 2.
Write the coefficient of m3 in each of the given polynomial.
i. m3
ii. $$\sqrt [ -3 ]{ 2 }$$ + m – √3m3

v. 2p – √7
vi. 7y – y3 + y5
vii. xyz +xy-z
viii. m3n7 – 3m5n + mn
i. √5 = √5 x°
∴ Degree of the polynomial = 0

ii. x°
∴Degree of the polynomial = 0

iii. x2
∴Degree of the polynomial = 2

iv. √2m10 – 7
Here, the highest power of m is 10.
∴Degree of the polynomial = 10

v. 2p – √7
Here, the highest power of p is 1.
∴ Degree of the polynomial = 1

vi. 7y – y3 + y5
Here, the highest power of y is 5.
∴Degree of the polynomial = 5

vii. xyz + xy – z
Here, the sum of the powers of x, y and z in the term xyz is 1 + 1 + 1= 3,
which is the highest sum of powers in the given polynomial.
∴Degree of the polynomial = 3

viii. m3n7 – 3m5n + mn
Here, the sum of the powers of m and n in the term m3n7 is 3 + 7 = 10,
which is the highest sum of powers in the given polynomial.
∴ Degree of the polynomial = 10

i. m3 + 3 + 5m
ii. – 7y + y5 + 3y3 – $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$+ 2y4 – y2
i. m3 + 5m + 3
ii. y5 + 2y4 + 3y3 – y2 – 7y – $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$

Question 7.

i. x3 – 2
ii. 5y
iii. 2m4 – 3m2 + 7
iv. – $$\frac { 2 }{ 3 }$$
i. x3 – 2 = x3 + 0x2 + 0x – 2
∴ Coefficient form of the given polynomial = (1, 0, 0, -2)

ii. 5y = 5y + 0
∴Coefficient form of the given polynomial = (5,0)

iii. 2m4 – 3m2 + 7
= 2m4 + Om3 – 3m2 + 0m + 7
∴ Coefficient form of the given polynomial = (2, 0, -3, 0, 7)

iv. – $$\frac { 2 }{ 3 }$$
∴Coefficient form of the given polynomial = (- $$\frac { 2 }{ 3 }$$)

Question 8.
Write the polynomials in index form.
i. (1, 2, 3)
ii. (5, 0, 0, 0 ,-1)
iii. (-2, 2, -2, 2)
i. Number of coefficients = 3
∴ Degree = 3 – 1 = 2
∴ Taking x as variable, the index form is x2 + 2x + 3

ii. Number of coefficients = 5
∴ Degree = 5 – 1=4
∴ Taking x as variable, the index form is 5x4 + 0x3 + 0x2 + 0x – 1

iii. Number of coefficients = 4
∴Degree = 4 – 1 = 3
∴Taking x as variable, the index form is -2x3 + 2x2 – 2x + 2
