So the coefficient form is as follows:

(1, 0, 0, 0, 16).

ii. In the coefficient form of the polynomial, the coefficients of the terms are written from highest power of the variable to lowest power.

⟹ m5 + 2m2 + 3m + 15 = 1.m5 + 0.m4 +0.m3 + 2.m2 + 3.m + 15

So the coefficient form is as follows:

= 3x4 – 2x3 + 7x + 18

ii. The given representation is the coefficient form of the polynomial. So, the first coefficient denotes the highest power of the variable and the power of last term is always zero.

So the index form is as follows:

6x3 + x2 + 0x + 7

=6x3 + x2 + 7

iii. The given representation is the coefficient form of the polynomial. So, the first coefficient denotes the highest power of the variable and the power of last term is always zero.

The multiplication is as follows:

= (m3 – 2m + 3) × (m4 -2m2 + 3m + 2)

= m× m4 - 2m× m3 + 3m × m3 + 2 × m3 - 2m × m4 + 4m× m – 3 × 2m - 4m + 3m4 – 6m2 + 6m + 12

= m7 – 2m5 + 3m4 + 2m3 – 2m5 + 4m3 – 6m - 4m + 3m4 - 6m2 + 6m + 12

= m7 - 4m5 + 6m4 + 6m3 – 16m + 12

The product = m7 - 4m5 + 6m4 + 6m3 – 16m + 12

= (5m3 – 2) × (m2 –m +3)

= 5m3.m2 – 5m3.m + 3.5m3 – 2m2 + 2m – 6

= 5m5 – 5m4 + 15m3 – 2m2 + 2m -6

The product is = 5m5 – 5m4 + 15m3 – 2m2 + 2m -6

Question 21.

The coefficient forms the first polynomial is as follows:

⟹ 3x3 – 8x2 + x + 7

⟹ (3, -8, 1, 7)

The quotient is as follows = 3x3 + x2 + 4x

The remainder is = 19

Question 22.

For which the value of x + 3 is the factor of the polynomial x3 – 2mx + 21?

Put x = -3 in the given polynomial and equate it to zero as x+3 is to be a factor of the polynomial.

(-3)3 – 2 × m × (-3) + 21 = 0

-27 + 6m + 21 = 0

6m -6 = 0

6m = 6

m = 1

So for x+3 to be a factor of the given polynomial, the value of m = 1.

Question 23.

At the end of the year 2016, the population of villages Kovad, Varud, Chikhali is 5x2 – 3y2, 7y2 + 2xy and 9x2 + 4xy respectively. At the beginning of the year 2017, x2 + xy – y2,5xy and 3x2 + xy persons from each of the three villages respectively went to another village for education then what is the remaining total population of these three villages?

Older Population of Kovad, Pk = 5x2 – 3y2

Older Population of Varud, Pv = 7y2 + 2xy

Older Population of Chikhali, Pc = 9x2 + 4xy

Number of people migrated from Kovad, Mk = x2 + xy – y2

Number of people migrated from Varud, Mv = 5xy

Number of people migrated from Chikhali, Mc = 3x2 + xy

Present Population of Kovad = Pk – Mk

= (5x2 – 3y2) – (x2 + xy – y2)

= 4x2 – 2y2 – xy

Present population of Varud = Pv – Mv

= (7y2 + 2xy) – 5xy

= 7y2 – 3xy

Present Population of Chikhali = Pc – Mc

= (9x2 + 4xy) – (3x2 + xy)

= 6x2 + 3xy

Question 24.

Polynomials bx2 + x + 5 and bx3 – 2x + 5 are divided by polynomial x – 3 and the remainders are  and  respectively. If m – n =0 then find the value of b.

Put x = 3 in the first polynomial:

b× (3)2 + 3 + 5 = m

9b + 8 = m ………………………………….. (i)

Put x = 3 in the second polynomial

b× (3)3 -2× 3 + 5 = n

27b -6 + 5 = n

27b -1 = n …………………………………. (ii)

Equation (i) – (ii)

m –n = 9b + 8 – (27b -1)

but m-n = 0

9b + 8 -27b + 1 = 0

-18b + 9 = 0

18b = 9

b = 9/18

b = 1/2

Question 25.

Simplify.

(8m2 + 3m – 6) - (9m-7) + (3m2 – 2m + 4)

(8m2 + 3m – 6) - (9m-7) + (3m2 – 2m + 4)

= 8m2 + 3m – 6 – 9m + 7 + 3m2 – 2m + 4

= 11m2 – 8m + 5

Question 26.

Which polynomial is to be subtracted from x2 + 13x + 7 to get the polynomial 3x2 + 5x – 4?

Let the polynomial to be subtracted be ax2 + bx + c

3x2 + 5x – 4 = (x2 + 13x + 7) - (ax2 + bx + c)

(ax2 + bx + c) = (x2 + 13x + 7) – (3x2 + 5x – 4)

= (x2 – 3x2) + (13x – 5x) + (7 + 4)

= -2x2 – 8x + 11

Comparing with coefficients we get:

a= -2

b = -8

c = 11

Therefore, the polynomial is = -2x2 -8x + 11

Question 27.

Which polynomial is to be added to 4m + 2n + 3 to get the polynomial 6m + 3n + 10?

Let the polynomial to be added be am + bn + c

6m + 3n + 10 = (4m + 2n + 3) + (am + bn + c)

(am + bn + c) = (6m + 3n + 10) - (4m + 2n + 3)

= (6-4) m + (3-2) n + (10-3)

= 2m + n + 7

Therefore, the polynomial to be added to 4m + 2n + 3 is 2m + n + 7.
