## MP Board Class 6th Maths Solutions Chapter 11 Algebra Ex 11.3

Question 1.
Make up as many expressions with numbers (no variables) as you can from three numbers 5, 7 and 8. Every number should be used not more than once. Use only addition, subtraction and multiplication.
(Hint : Three possible expressions are 5 + (8 – 7), 5 – (8 – 7), (5 × 8) + 7; make the other expressions.)
Solution:
(a) (8 × 5) – 7
(b) (8 + 5) – 7
(c) (8 × 7) – 5
(d) (8 + 7) – 5
(e) 5 × (7 + 8)
(f) 5 + (7 × 8)
(g) 5 + (8 – 7)
(h) 5 – (7 + 8)

Question 2.
Which out of the following are expressions with numbers only?
(a) y + 3
(b) (7 × 20) – 8z
(c) 5 (21 – 7) + 7 × 2
(d) 5
(e) 3 x
(f) 5 – 5n
(g) (7 × 20) – (5 × 10) – 45 + p
Solution:
(c) and (d) have expressions with numbers only.

Question 3.
Identify the operations (addition, subtraction, division, multiplication) in forming the following expressions and tell how the expressions have been formed.
(a) z + 1, z – 1, y + 17, y – 17
(b) 17y, $$\frac{y}{17}$$, 5z
(c) 2y + 17, 2y – 17
(d) 7m, – 7m + 3, – 7m – 3
Solution:
(a) z + 1 = 1 added to z
z – 1 = 1 subtracted from z
y + 17 = 17 added to y
y – 17 = 17 subtracted from y

(b) 17y = y multiplied by 17
$$\frac{y}{17}$$ = y divided by 17
5z = z multiplied by 5 .

(c) 2y + 17 = First y multiplied by 2, then 17 added to the product
2y – 17 = First y multiplied by 2, then 17 subtracted from the product

(d) 7m = m multiplied by 7
-7m + 3 = First m multiplied by -7, then 3 added to the product
-7m – 3 = First m multiplied by -7, then 3 subtracted from the product Question 4.
Give expressions for the following cases.
(b) 7 subtracted from p
(c) p multiplied by 7
(d) p divided by 7
(e) 7 subtracted from – m
(f) -p multiplied by 5
(g) -p divided by 5
(h) p multiplied by – 5
Solution:
(a) p + 7
(b) p – 7
(c) 7p
(d) $$\frac{p}{7}$$
(e) -m – 7
(f) -5p
(g) $$\frac{-p}{5}$$
(h) -5p

Question 5.
Give expressions in the following cases.
(b) 11 subtracted from 2m
(c) 5 times y to which 3 is added
(d) 5 times y from which 3 is subtracted
(e) y is multiplied by – 8
(f) y is multiplied by – 8 and then 5 is added to the result
(g) y is multiplied by 5 and the result is subtracted from 16
(h) y is multiplied by – 5 and the result is added to 16.
Solution:
(a) 2m + 11
(b) 2m – 11
(c) 5y + 3
(d) 5y – 3
(e) -8y
(f) -8y + 5
(g) 16 – 5 y
(h) -5y + 16 Question 6.
(a) Form expressions using t and 4. Use not more than one number operation. Every expression must have t in it.
(b) Form expressions using y, 2 and 7. Every expression must have y in it. Use only two number operations. These should be different.
Solution:
(a) t + 4, t – 4, 4 – t, 4t, $$\frac{t}{4}$$, $$\frac{4}{t}$$
(b) 2 y + 7, 2y – 7, 7y + 2,7y – 2 and so on.
