**Solution:**

(i) 3a + 4b + 7c, – 5a + 3b â€“ 6c

and 4a â€“ 2b â€“ 4c

The sum of 3a + 4b + 7c, – 5a + 3b â€“ 6c and 4a â€“ 2b â€“ 4c is calculated as shown below

(3a + 4b + 7c) + (-5a + 3b â€“ 6c) + (4a â€“ 2b â€“ 4c)

= 3a + 4a â€“ 5a + 4b + 3b â€“ 2b + 7c â€“ 6c â€“ 4c

We get,

= 2a +5b â€“ 3c

Hence, the sum of 3a + 4b + 7c, – 5a + 3b â€“ 6c and 4a â€“ 2b â€“ 4c is 3c

(ii) 2x^{2} + xy â€“ y^{2}, – x^{2} + 2xy + 3y^{2}

The sum of 2x^{2} + xy â€“ y^{2}, – x^{2} + 2xy + 3y^{2} and 3x^{2} â€“ 10xy + 4y^{2} is calculated as shown below

(2x^{2} + xy â€“ y^{2}) + (- x^{2} + 2xy + 3y^{2}) + (3x^{2} â€“ 10xy + 4y^{2})

= 2x^{2} â€“ x^{2} + 3x^{2} + xy + 2xy â€“ 10xy + 3y^{2} + 4y^{2} â€“ y^{2}

We get,

= 4x^{2} â€“ 7xy + 6y^{2}

Hence, the sum of 2x^{2} + xy â€“ y^{2}, – x^{2} + 2xy + 3y^{2} and 3x^{2} â€“ 10xy + 4y^{2} is 4x^{2} â€“ 7xy + 6y^{2}

(x^{2} â€“ x + 1) + (- 5x^{2} + 2x â€“ 2) + (3x^{2} â€“ 3x + 1)

= x^{2} â€“ 5x^{2} + 3x^{2} + 2x â€“ x â€“ 3x + 1 +1 â€“ 2

= – x^{2} â€“ 2x

Hence, the sum of (x^{2} â€“ x + 1), (- 5x^{2} + 2x â€“ 2) and (3x^{2} â€“ 3x + 1) is – x^{2} â€“ 2x

(iv) a^{2} â€“ ab + bc, 2ab + bc â€“ 2a^{2} and – 3bc + 3a^{2} + ab

(a^{2} â€“ ab + bc) + (2ab + bc â€“ 2a^{2}) + (- 3bc + 3a^{2} + ab)

= a^{2} â€“ 2a^{2} + 3a^{2} + 2ab + ab â€“ ab + bc + bc â€“ 3bc

We get,

= 2a^{2} +2ab – bc

Hence, the sum of (a^{2} â€“ ab + bc), (2ab + bc â€“ 2a^{2}) and (- 3bc + 3a^{2} + ab) is 2a^{2} +2ab – bc

(v) 4x^{2} + 7 â€“ 3x, 4x â€“ x^{2} + 8 and â€“ 10 + 5x â€“ 2x^{2}

= 4x^{2} â€“ x^{2} â€“ 2x^{2} + 7 + 8 â€“ 10 + 4x + 5x â€“ 3x

We get,

= x^{2} + 5 + 6x

Hence, the sum of (4x^{2} + 7 â€“ 3x), (4x â€“ x^{2} + 8) and (- 10 + 5x â€“ 2x^{2}) is x^{2} + 5 + 6x

= x + 2x â€“ x + y â€“ y â€“ y â€“ 2z â€“ z + z

We get,

= 2x â€“ y â€“ 2z

Therefore, (x + y â€“ 2z) + (2x â€“ y + z) – (x + y + z) = 2x â€“ y â€“ 2z

**7. From the sum of 3a â€“ 2b + 4c and 3b â€“ 2c subtract a â€“ b â€“ c.**

= 3a â€“ 2b + 4c + 3b â€“ 2c â€“ a + b + c

On further calculation, we get

= 3a â€“ a + 3b + b â€“ 2b + 4c + c â€“ 2c

On further calculation, we get

= x + x â€“ x â€“x + y â€“ y + z + z â€“ 2z
