(x + 3) (x + 3)

Putting formula (a + b)2 = a2 + b2+ 2ab

Put a = x  & b = 3

(x + 3) (x +3 ) = (x + 3)2

= x2 + 6x + 9

(ii) (2y + 5) (2y + 5)

Solution:

(2y + 5) (2y + 5)

Putting formula (a + b)2 = a2 + b2 + 2ab

Put a = 2y & b = 5

(2y + 5) (2y + 5) = (2y + 5)2

= 4y2 + 20y + 25

(iii) (2a – 7) (2a – 7)

Solution:

(2a – 7) (2a – 7)

Putting formula (x – y)2 = x2 + y2 – 2xy

Put x = 2a & y = 7

(2a – 7) (2a – 7) = (2a – 7)2

= 4a2 – 28a + 49

(iv) (3a – 1/2) (3a – 1/2)

Solution:

(3a – 1/2) (3a – 1/2)

Putting formula (x – y)2 = x2 + y2 – 2xy

Put x = 3a & y = 1/2

= (3a)2 + (1/2)2 – 2 (3a) (1/2)

= 32a2 + 1/4 – 3a

= 9a2 + 1/4 – 3a

(v) (1.1m –  0.4) (1.1m + 0.4)

Solution:

(1.1m – 0.4) (1.1m + 0.4)

Putting formula (a + b) (a – b) = a2– b2

Put a = 1.1m & b = 0.4

(1.1m – 0.4) (1.1m + 0.4) = (1.1m)2 – (0.4)2

= 1.21m2 – 0.16

(vi) (a2 + b2) (– a2 + b2)

Solution:

(a2 + b2) (– a2 + b2)

(a2 + b2) (– a2 + b2) = (b2 + a2) (b2 – a2)

Putting formula (x + y) (x – y) = x2 – y2

Put x = b2 &  y = a2

(b2 + a2) (b2 – a2) = b2×2 – a2×2

= b4 – a4

Solution:

(6x – 7) (6x + 7)

Putting formula (a – b) (a + b) = a2 – b2

(6x – 7) (6x + 7) = (6x)2 – 72

= 36x2 – 49

(viii) (– a + c) (– a + c)

Solution:

(– a + c) (– a + c)

(– a + c) (– a + c) = (c – a) (c – a)

Putting formula (x – y)2 = x2 + y2 – 2xy

Put x = c & y = a

(c – a) (c – a) = c2 + a2 – 2ca

= a2 + c2 – 2ac

(ix) (x/2 + 3y/4) (x/2 + 3y/4)

Solution:

(x/2 + 3y/4) (x/2 + 3y/4)

Putting formula (a + b)2 = a2 + b2 + 2ab

put a = x/2 & b = 3y/4

= (x/2)2 + (3y/4)2 + 2 (x/2) (3y/4)

= x2/4 + 9y2/16 + 3xy/4

(x) (7a – 9b) (7a – 9b)

Solution:

(7a – 9b) (7a – 9b)

Putting formula (x – y)2 = x2+ y2– 2xy

Put x = 7a & y = 9b

(7a – 9b) (7a – 9b) = (7a)2 + (9b)2 – 2(7a)(9b)

= 49a2 + 81b2 – 126ab
