= (a – b)(a + b)(a^{2}+b^{2})

(ii) p^{4}–81

= (p^{2})^{2}-(9)^{2}

= (p^{2}-9)(p^{2}+9)

= (p^{2}-3^{2})(p^{2}+9)

=(p-3)(p+3)(p^{2}+9)

**(ii) q ^{2}–10q+21**

**(iii) p ^{2}+6p–16**

**Solution:**

(i) p^{2}+6p+8

We observed that, 8 = 4×2 and 4+2 = 6

p^{2}+6p+8 can be written as p^{2}+2p+4p+8

Taking Common terms, we get

p^{2}+6p+8 = p^{2}+2p+4p+8 = p(p+2)+4(p+2)

Again p+2 is common in both the terms.

= (p+2)(p+4)

This implies: p^{2}+6p+8 = (p+2)(p+4)

(ii) q^{2}–10q+21

Observed that, 21 = -7×-3 and -7+(-3) = -10

q^{2}–10q+21 = q^{2}–3q-7q+21

= q(q–3)–7(q–3)

= (q–7)(q–3)

This implies q^{2}–10q+21 = (q–7)(q–3)

(iii) p^{2}+6p–16

We observed that, -16 = -2×8 and 8+(-2) = 6

p^{2}+6p–16 = p^{2}–2p+8p–16

= p(p–2)+8(p–2)

= (p+8)(p–2)

So, p^{2}+6p–16 = (p+8)(p–2)

(y^{2}+7y+10) = y^{2}+2y+5y+10 = y(y+2)+5(y+2) = (y+2)(y+5)

Now, (y^{2}+7y+10)÷(y+5) = (y+2)(y+5)/(y+5) = y+2

**(ii) (m ^{2}–14m–32)÷ (m+2)**

Solve for m^{2}–14m–32, we have

m^{2}–14m–32 = m^{2}+2m-16m–32 = m(m+2)–16(m+2) = (m–16)(m+2)

Now, (m^{2}–14m–32)÷(m+2) = (m–16)(m+2)/(m+2) = m-16

**(iii) (5p ^{2}–25p+20)÷(p–1)**

**(v) 5pq(p ^{2}–q^{2}) ÷ 2p(p+q)**

p^{2}–q^{2} can be written as (p–q)(p+q) using identity.

5pq(p^{2}–q^{2}) ÷ 2p(p+q) = 5pq(p–q)(p+q)/2p(p+q) = 5q(p–q)/2

LHS = (3x+2)^{ 2} = (3x)^{2}+2^{2}+2x2x3x = 9x^{2}+4+12x ≠ RHS

The correct statement is (3x + 2)^{ 2} = 9x^{2}+4+12x

**10. Substituting x = – 3 in**

**(a) x ^{2} + 5x + 4 gives (– 3)^{ 2}+5(– 3)+4 = 9+2+4 = 15**

**(b) x ^{2} – 5x + 4 gives (– 3)^{ 2}– 5( – 3)+4 = 9–15+4 = – 2**

**(c) x ^{2} + 5x gives (– 3)^{ 2}+5(–3) = – 9–15 = – 24**

**Solution:**

(a) Substituting x = – 3 in x^{2}+5x+4, we have

x^{2}+5x+4 = (– 3)^{ 2}+5(– 3)+4 = 9–15+4 = – 2. This is the correct answer.

(b) Substituting x = – 3 in x^{2}–5x+4

x^{2}–5x+4 = (–3)^{ 2}–5(– 3)+4 = 9+15+4 = 28. This is the correct answer

(c)Substituting x = – 3 in x^{2}+5x

x^{2}+5x = (– 3)^{ 2}+5(–3) = 9–15 = -6. This is the correct answer

**11.(y–3) ^{2} = y^{2}–9**

**Solution:**

LHS = (y–3)^{2} , which is similar to (a–b)^{2} identity, where (a–b)^{ 2} = a^{2}+b^{2}-2ab.

(y – 3)^{2} = y^{2}+(3)^{ 2}–2y×3 = y^{2}+9 –6y ≠ y^{2} – 9 = RHS

The correct statement is (y–3)^{2} = y^{2} + 9 – 6y

**12. (z+5) ^{ 2} = z^{2}+25**

**Solution:**

LHS = (z+5)^{2} , which is similar to (a +b)^{2} identity, where (a+b)^{ 2} = a^{2}+b^{2}+2ab.

(z+5)^{ 2} = z^{2}+5^{2}+2×5×z = z^{2}+25+10z ≠ z^{2}+25 = RHS

The correct statement is (z+5)^{ 2} = z^{2}+25+10z

**13. (2a+3b)(a–b) = 2a ^{2}–3b^{2}**

**Solution:**

LHS = (2a+3b)(a–b) = 2a(a–b)+3b(a–b)

= 2a^{2}–2ab+3ab–3b^{2}

= 2a^{2}+ab–3b^{2}

≠ 2a^{2}–3b^{2} = RHS

The correct statement is (2a +3b)(a –b) = 2a^{2}+ab–3b^{2}

**14. (a+4)(a+2) = a ^{2}+8**

**Solution:**

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

= a^{2}+2a+4a+8

= a^{2}+6a+8

≠ a^{2}+8 = RHS

The correct statement is (a+4)(a+2) = a^{2}+6a+8

**15. (a–4)(a–2) = a ^{2}–8**

**Solution:**

LHS = (a–4)(a–2) = a(a–2)–4(a–2)

= a^{2}–2a–4a+8

= a^{2}–6a+8

≠ a^{2}-8 = RHS

The correct statement is (a–4)(a–2) = a^{2}–6a+8

**16. 3x ^{2}/3x^{2} = 0**

**Solution:**

LHS = 3x^{2}/3x^{2} = 1 ≠ 0 = RHS

The correct statement is 3x^{2}/3x^{2} = 1

**17.** **(3x ^{2}+1)/3x^{2} = 1 + 1 = 2**

**Solution:**

LHS = (3x^{2}+1)/3x^{2} = (3x^{2}/3x^{2})+(1/3x^{2}) = 1+(1/3x^{2}) ≠ 2 = RHS

The correct statement is (3x^{2}+1)/3x^{2} = 1+(1/3x^{2})

**18. 3x/(3x+2) = ½**

**Solution:**

LHS = 3x/(3x+2) ≠ 1/2 = RHS

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

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

**Solution:**

LHS = 3/(4x+3) ≠ 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 ≠ 5 = RHS

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

Solution:

LHS = (7x+5)/5 = (7x/5)+ 5/5 = (7x/5)+1 ≠ 7x = RHS

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