**EXERCISE 21**

**Question 1.**

Write in the form of an algebraic expression :

(i) Perimeter (P) of a rectangle is two times the sum of its length (l) and its breadth (b).

(ii) Perimeter (P) of a square is four times its side.

(iii) Area of a square is square of its side.

(iv) Surface area of a cube is six times the square of its edge.

**Solution:**

(i) Let P be the perimeter and / be the length, and b be the breadth.

P = 2 (l + b)

(ii) Let P be the perimeter and a be the side of the square.

P = 4a

(iii) Let A be the area of the square and a be the sides of the square.

A = (a)^{2}

(iv) Let S be the surface area and a be the edges of the cube.

S = 6a^{2}

**Question 2.**

Express each of the following as an algebraic expression :

(i) The sum of x and y minus m.

(ii) The product of x and y divided by m.

(iii) The subtraction of 5m from 3n and then adding 9p to it.

(iv) The product of 12, x, y and z minus the product of 5, m and n.

(v) Sum of p and 2r – s minus sum of a and 3n + 4x.

**Solution:**

(i) x + y – m

(ii)

(iii) 3n – 5m + 9p

(iv) 12xyz – 5mn

(v) p + 2r – s – (a + 3n + 4x)

**Question 3.**

Construct a formula for the following :

Total wages (₹ W) of a man whose basic wage is (₹ B) for t hours week plus (₹ R) per hour, if he Works a total of T hours.

**Solution:**

Wages for t hours = ₹ B

Wages for overtime = R(T – t)

=> Total wages = Wages for t hours + wages for overtime of (T – t) hours

=> ₹ W = ₹ B + ₹ R (T – t)
