**Q1. Which of the following expressions are polynomials in one variable and which are not? State reasons for your answer.****(i) 4x ^{2} – 3x + 7**

Solution:

The equation 4x^{2} – 3x + 7 can be written as 4x^{2} – 3x^{1} + 7x^{0}

Since *x* is the only variable in the given equation and the powers of x (i.e., 2, 1 and 0) are whole numbers, we can say that the expression 4x^{2} – 3x + 7 is a polynomial in one variable.

**(ii) y ^{2} + √2**

Solution:

The equation y + can be written as y+2y^{-1}

Though, *y *is the only variable in the given equation, the powers of *y* (i.e.,-1) is not a whole number. Hence, we can say that the expression y + is **not **a polynomial in one variable.

Solution:

Here, in the equation x^{10} + y^{3} + t^{50}

Possible expression for breadth = x

Possible expression for height = (x – 4)

(ii) Volume : 12ky^{2}+8ky –20k

12ky^{2}+8ky –20k can be written as 4k(3y^{2}+2y–5) by taking 4k out of both the terms.

12ky^{2}+8ky–20k =4k(3y^{2}+2y–5)

^{2}+2y–5 can be written as 3y

^{2}+5y–3y–5 using splitting the middle term method.]

=4k(3y^{2}+5y–3y–5)

=4k[y(3y+5)–1(3y+5)]

=4k(3y+5)(y–1)

Possible expression for length = 4k

Possible expression for breadth = (3y +5)

Possible expression for height = (y -1)
