# Worksheet on Expansion of (x ± a)(x ± b)

Practice the questions given in the worksheet on expansion of (x ± a)(x ± b).

1. (i) Find the product using standard formula.

(i) (x + 2)(x + 5)

(ii) (a – 4)(a – 7)

(iii) (x + 1)(x – 8)

(iv) (a – 3)(a + 2)

(v) (3x + 1)(3x + 2)

(vi) (4x – y)(4x + 2y)

2. Find the product.

(i) (x + y + 3)(x + y + 2)

(ii) (2x – y + 4)(2x – y – 3)

(iii) (x + 2y – 1)(x + y – 1)
