Here we will solve different types of application problems on expansion of powers of binomials and trinomials.
1. Use (x ± y)\(^{2}\) = x\(^{2}\) ± 2xy + y\(^{2}\) to evaluate (2.05)\(^{2}\).
Solution:
(2.05)\(^{2}\)
= (2 + 0.05)\(^{2}\)
= 2\(^{2}\) + 2 × 2 × 0.05 + (0.05)\(^{2}\)
= 4 + 0.20 + 0.0025
= 4.2025.
2. Use (x ± y)\(^{2}\) = x\(^{2}\) ± 2xy + y\(^{2}\) to evaluate (5.94)\(^{2}\).
Solution:
(5.94)\(^{2}\)
= (6 – 0.06)\(^{2}\)
= 6\(^{2}\) – 2 × 6 × 0.06 + (0.06)\(^{2}\)
= 36 – 0.72 + 0.0036
= 36.7236.
3. Evaluate 149 × 151 using (x + y)(x - y) = x\(^{2}\) - y\(^{2}\)
Solution:
149 × 151
= (150 - 1)(150 + 1)
= 150\(^{2}\) - 1\(^{2}\)
= 22500 - 1
= 22499
4. Evaluate 3.99 × 4.01 using (x + y)(x - y) = x\(^{2}\) - y\(^{2}\).
Solution:
3.99 × 4.01
= (4 – 0.01)(4 + 0.01)
= 4\(^{2}\) - (0.01)\(^{2}\)
= 16 - 0.0001
= 15.9999
5. If the sum of two numbers x and y is 10 and the sum of their squares is 52, find the product of the numbers.
Solution:
According to the problem, sum of two numbers x and y is 10
i.e., x + y = 10 and
Sum of the two numbers x and y squares is 52
i.e., x\(^{2}\) + y\(^{2}\) = 52
We know that, 2ab = (a + b)\(^{2}\) – (a\(^{2}\) + b\(^{2}\))
Therefore, 2xy = (x + y)\(^{2}\) - (x\(^{2}\) + y\(^{2}\))
⟹ 2xy = 10\(^{2}\) - 52
⟹ 2xy = 100 - 52
⟹ 2xy = 48
Therefore, xy = \(\frac{1}{2}\) × 2xy
= \(\frac{1}{2}\) × 48
= 24.
6. If the sum of three numbers p, q, r is 6 and the sum of their squares is 14 then find the sum of the products of the three numbers taking two at a time.
Solution:
According to the problem, sum of three numbers p, q, r is 6.
i.e., p + q + r = 6 and
Sum of the three numbers p, q, r squares is 14
i.e., p\(^{2}\) + q\(^{2}\)+ r\(^{2}\)= 14
Here we need to find the value of pq + qr + rp
We know that, (a + b + c)\(^{2}\) = a\(^{2}\) + b\(^{2}\) + c\(^{2}\) + 2(ab + bc + ca).
Therefore, (p + q + r)\(^{2}\) = p\(^{2}\) + q\(^{2}\) + r\(^{2}\) + 2(pq + qr + rp).
⟹ (p + q + r)\(^{2}\) - (p\(^{2}\) + q\(^{2}\) + r\(^{2}\)) = 2(pq + qr + rp).
⟹ 6\(^{2}\) - 14 = 2(pq + qr + rp).
⟹ 36 – 14 = 2(pq + qr + rp).
⟹ 22 = 2(pq + qr + rp).
⟹ pq + qr + rp = \(\frac{22}{2}\)
Therefore, pq + qr + rp = 11.
7. Evaluate: (3.29)\(^{3}\) + (6.71)\(^{3}\)
Solution:
We know, a\(^{3}\) + b\(^{3}\) = (a + b) \(^{3}\) – 3ab(a + b)
Therefore, (3.29)\(^{3}\) + (6.71)\(^{3}\)
= (3.29 + 6.71)\(^{3}\) – 3 × 3.29 × 6.71(3.29 + 6.71)
= 10\(^{3}\) – 3 × 3.29 × 6.71 × 10
= 1000 - 3 × 220.759
= 1000 – 662.277
= 337.723
14. If the sum of two numbers is 9 and the sum of their cubes is 189, find the sum of their squares.
Solution:
Let a, b are the two numbers
According to the problem, sum of two numbers is 9
i.e., a + b = 9 and
Sum of their cubes is 189
i.e., a\(^{3}\) + b\(^{3}\) = 189
Now a\(^{3}\) + b\(^{3}\) = (a + b) \(^{3}\) – 3ab(a + b).
Therefore, 9\(^{3}\) – 189 = 3ab × 9.
Therefore, 27ab = 729 – 189 = 540.
Therefore, ab = \(\frac{540}{27}\) = 20.
Now, a\(^{2}\) + b\(^{2}\) = (a + b)\(^{2}\) – 2ab
= 9\(^{2}\) – 2 × 20
= 81 – 40
= 41.
Therefore, the sum of the squares of the numbers is 41.
