# Class 8 NCERT Solutions – Chapter 9 Algebraic Expressions and Identities – Exercise 9.2

### Question** 1. Find the product of the following pairs of monomials.**

Monomial:Expression containing only one term

**(i) 4, 7p **

**Ans:**

(4) * (7p) = 28p

** (ii) -4p, 7p**

**Ans: **

(-4p) * (7p) = -28p

^{2}

Explanation:When a negative number is multiplied to a positive number the product becomes negative.

**(iii) -4p, 7pq**

**Ans: **

(-4p) * (7pq) = -28p

^{2}q

**(iv) 4p ^{3}, -3p**

**Ans: **

(4p

^{3}) * (-3p) = -12p^{4}

**(v) 4p, 0**

**Ans: **

(4p) * (0) = 0

Explanation:Any number when multiplied to zero (0) gives zero.

**Question 2. Find the areas of rectangles with the following pairs of monomials as their lengths and breadths respectively.**

** (p, q); (10m, 5n); (20x**^{2}, 5y^{2}); (4x, 3x^{2}); (3mn, 4np)

^{2}, 5y

^{2}); (4x, 3x

^{2}); (3mn, 4np)

Note:Area of rectangle is the product of length and breadth [length * breadth]

**Ans:**

For (p,q):p * q = pq

For (10m, 5n):10m * 5n = 50mn

For (20x^{2},5y^{2}):

20x^{2 }* 5y^{2}= 100x^{2}y^{2}

For (4x,3x^{2}):4x * 3x

^{2}= 12x^{3}

For (3mn, 4np):

3mn * 4np = 12mn^{2}p

**Question 3. Complete the table of products.**

-5y | -10xy | 25y^{2} | -15x^{2}y | 20xy^{2} | -35x^{2}y^{2} | 45x^{2}y^{3} |

3x^{2} | 6x^{3} | -15x^{2}y | 9x^{4} | -12x^{3}y | 21x^{4}y | -27x^{4}y^{2} |

-4xy | -8x^{2}y | 20xy^{2} | -12x^{3}y | 16x^{2}y^{2} | -28x^{3}y^{2} | 36x^{3}y^{3} |

7x^{2}y | 14x^{3}y | -35x^{2}y^{2} | 21x^{4}y | -28x^{3}y^{2} | 49x^{4}y^{2} | -63x^{4}y^{3} |

-9x^{2}y^{2} | -18x^{3}y^{2} | 45x^{2}y^{3} | -27x^{4}y^{2} | 36x^{3}y^{3} | 63x^{4}y^{3} | 81x^{4}y^{4} |

**Question 4. Obtain the volume of rectangular boxes with the following length, breadth**,** and height respectively.**

Note:The volume of the rectangle is the product of length, breadth, height [length * breadth * height]

**(i)** **5a, 3a ^{2}, 7a^{4}**

**Ans:**

5a * 3a

^{2}* 7a^{4 }= 105a^{7}

**(ii) 2p , 4q , 8r**

**Ans:**

2p * 4q * 8r = 64pqr

**(iii) xy, 2x ^{2}y, 2xy^{2}**

**Ans:**

xy * 2x

^{2}y * 2xy^{2 }= 4x^{4}y^{4}

**(iv) a, 2b, 3c**

**Ans: ** a * 2b * 3c = 6abc

**Question 5. Obtain the product of **

**(i) xy, yz, zx**

**Ans:**

xy * yz * zx = x

^{2}y^{2}z^{2}

**(ii) a, -a ^{2}, a^{3}**

**Ans:**

a * -a

^{2 }* a^{3}= -a^{6}

**(iii) 2, 4y, 8y ^{2}, 16y^{3}**

**Ans:**

2 * 4y * 8y

^{2 }* 16y^{3}= 1024y^{6}

**(iv) a, 2b, 3c, 6abc**

**Ans:**

a * 2b * 3c * 6abc = 36a

^{2}b^{2}c^{2}

**(v) m, -mn, mnp**

**Ans:**

m * -mn * mnp = -m

^{3}n^{2}p
