Find and correct the errors in the following mathematical statements.

1. 4(xâ€“5) = 4xâ€“5

Solution:

4(x- 5)= 4x â€“ 20 â‰  4x â€“ 5 = RHS

The correct statement is 4(x-5) = 4xâ€“20

2. x(3x+2) = 3x2+2

Solution:

LHS = x(3x+2) = 3x2+2x â‰  3x2+2 = RHS

The correct solution is x(3x+2) = 3x2+2x

3. 2x+3y = 5xy

Solution:

LHS= 2x+3y â‰  R. H. S

The correct statement is 2x+3y = 2x+3 y

4. x+2x+3x = 5x

Solution:

LHS = x+2x+3x = 6x â‰  RHS

The correct statement is x+2x+3x = 6x

5. 5y+2y+yâ€“7y = 0

Solution:

LHS = 5y+2y+yâ€“7y = y â‰  RHS

The correct statement is 5y+2y+yâ€“7y = y

6. 3x+2x = 5x2

Solution:

LHS = 3x+2x = 5x â‰  RHS

The correct statement is 3x+2x = 5x

7. (2x) 2+4(2x)+7 = 2x2+8x+7

Solution:

LHS = (2x) 2+4(2x)+7 = 4x2+8x+7 â‰  RHS

The correct statement is (2x) 2+4(2x)+7 = 4x2+8x+7

8. (2x) 2+5x = 4x+5x = 9x

Solution:

LHS = (2x) 2+5x = 4x2+5x â‰  9x = RHS

The correct statement is(2x) 2+5x = 4x2+5x

9. (3x + 2) 2 = 3x2+6x+4

Solution:

LHS = (3x+2) 2 = (3x)2+22+2x2x3x = 9x2+4+12x â‰  RHS

The correct statement is (3x + 2) 2 = 9x2+4+12x

10. Substituting x = â€“ 3 in

(a) x2 + 5x + 4 gives (â€“ 3) 2+5(â€“ 3)+4 = 9+2+4 = 15

(b) x2 â€“ 5x + 4 gives (â€“ 3) 2â€“ 5( â€“ 3)+4 = 9â€“15+4 = â€“ 2

(c) x2 + 5x gives (â€“ 3) 2+5(â€“3) = â€“ 9â€“15 = â€“ 24

Solution:

(a) Substituting x = â€“ 3 in x2+5x+4, we have

x2+5x+4 = (â€“ 3) 2+5(â€“ 3)+4 = 9â€“15+4 = â€“ 2. This is the correct answer.

(b) Substituting x = â€“ 3 in x2â€“5x+4

x2â€“5x+4 = (â€“3) 2â€“5(â€“ 3)+4 = 9+15+4 = 28. This is the correct answer

(c)Substituting x = â€“ 3 in x2+5x

x2+5x = (â€“ 3) 2+5(â€“3) = 9â€“15 = -6. This is the correct answer

11.(yâ€“3)2 = y2â€“9

Solution:

LHS = (yâ€“3)2 , which is similar to (aâ€“b)2 identity, where (aâ€“b) 2 = a2+b2-2ab.

(y â€“ 3)2 = y2+(3) 2â€“2yÃ—3 = y2+9 â€“6y â‰  y2 â€“ 9 = RHS

The correct statement is (yâ€“3)2 = y2 + 9 â€“ 6y

12. (z+5) 2 = z2+25

Solution:

LHS = (z+5)2 , which is similar to (a +b)2 identity, where (a+b) 2 = a2+b2+2ab.

(z+5) 2 = z2+52+2Ã—5Ã—z = z2+25+10z â‰  z2+25 = RHS

The correct statement is (z+5) 2 = z2+25+10z

13. (2a+3b)(aâ€“b) = 2a2â€“3b2

Solution:

LHS = (2a+3b)(aâ€“b) = 2a(aâ€“b)+3b(aâ€“b)

= 2a2â€“2ab+3abâ€“3b2

= 2a2+abâ€“3b2

â‰  2a2â€“3b2 = RHS

The correct statement is (2a +3b)(a â€“b) = 2a2+abâ€“3b2

14. (a+4)(a+2) = a2+8

Solution:

LHS = (a+4)(a+2) = a(a+2)+4(a+2)

= a2+2a+4a+8

= a2+6a+8

â‰  a2+8 = RHS

The correct statement is (a+4)(a+2) = a2+6a+8

15. (aâ€“4)(aâ€“2) = a2â€“8

Solution:

LHS = (aâ€“4)(aâ€“2) = a(aâ€“2)â€“4(aâ€“2)

= a2â€“2aâ€“4a+8

= a2â€“6a+8

â‰  a2-8 = RHS

The correct statement is (aâ€“4)(aâ€“2) = a2â€“6a+8

16. 3x2/3x2 = 0

Solution:

LHS = 3x2/3x2 = 1 â‰  0 = RHS

The correct statement is 3x2/3x2 = 1

17. (3x2+1)/3x2 = 1 + 1 = 2

Solution:

LHS = (3x2+1)/3x2 = (3x2/3x2)+(1/3x2) = 1+(1/3x2) â‰  2 = RHS

The correct statement is (3x2+1)/3x2 = 1+(1/3x2)

18. 3x/(3x+2) = Â½

Solution:

LHS = 3x/(3x+2) â‰  1/2 = RHS

The correct statement is 3x/(3x+2) = 3x/(3x+2)

19. 3/(4x+3) = 1/4x

Solution:

LHS = 3/(4x+3) â‰  1/4x

The correct statement is 3/(4x+3) = 3/(4x+3)

20. (4x+5)/4x = 5

Solution:

LHS = (4x+5)/4x = 4x/4x + 5/4x = 1 + 5/4x â‰  5 = RHS

The correct statement is (4x+5)/4x = 1 + (5/4x)

Solution:

LHS = (7x+5)/5 = (7x/5)+ 5/5 = (7x/5)+1 â‰  7x = RHS

The correct statement is (7x+5)/5 = (7x/5) +1
