Practice the questions given in the worksheet on subtraction of like terms. The questions are based on arranging all the groups of like terms and then they are subtracted.

**1. Fill in the blanks:**

(i) 7 – 4 = ____ and 7xy – 4xy = ____

(ii) 15 – 15 = ____ and 15ab – 15ab = ____

(iii) 5 – 13 = ____ and 5mn – 13mn = ____

(iv) 39 – 19 = ____ and 39xyz – 19xyz = ____

(v) 12 – 7 = ____ and 12abc – 7acb = ____

(vi) 13 – 1 =____ and 13amz – amz =____

**2. Subtract arranging
the like terms:**

(i) 2a – 7b from 8a – 11b + 7

(ii) –x(iii) 8l – 4m - 2n from l – 3m – 7n

(iv) From 2a

(v) From 5m

(vi) From 5x

**3. Subtract the first
term from the second term:**

(i) 8m, 10m

(ii) 4xy, 6yx

(iii) 5mn, 7mn

(iv) 15ab, 30ab

(v) 17ax(vi) 23pq, 18pq

**4.** The sum of two
expressions is a – b + 4c if one of the term is 2a – 7b – c, find the other.

**5.** What should be
subtracted from -11p + 3q – 5r to obtain 15p – 17q + 7r.

Answers for the worksheet on subtraction of like terms are given below to check the exact answers of the above questions.
