### Exercise 1.1 Page: 6

#### Ex 2.1 Class 9 Maths Question 1.

Which of the following expressions are polynomials in one variable and which are not? State reasons for your answer.
(i) 4x2 – 3x + 7
(ii) y2 + √2
(iii) 3 √t + t√2
(iv) y+ $$\frac { 2 }{ y }$$
(v) x10+ y3+t50

Solution:

(i) We have 4x2 – 3x + 7 = 4x2 – 3x + 7x0.
It is a polynomial in one variable i.e. x
Because every exponent of x is a whole number.

(ii) We have y2 + √2 = y2 + √2y0 .
It is a polynomial in one variable, i.e., y
Because every exponent of y is a whole number.

(iii) We have 3 √t + t√2 = 3 √t1/2 + √2.t
It is not a polynomial, because one of the exponents of t is $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$,
which is not a whole number.

(iv) We have y + $$y+\frac { 2 }{ y }$$ = y + 2.y-1
It is not a polynomial, because one of the exponents of y is -1,
which is not a whole number.

(v) We have x10+  y+ t50
Here, the exponent of each variable is a whole number, but x10+  y+ t50 is a polynomial in x, y and t, that is, in three variables.
Hence it is not a polynomial with one variable.

#### Ex 2.1 Class 9 Maths Question 2.

Write the coefficients of x2 in each of the following
(i) 2 + x2 + x
(ii) 2 – x2 + x3
(iii) $$\frac { \pi }{ 2 }$$ x2 + x
(iv) √2 x – 1

Solution:

(i) The given polynomial is 2 + x2 + x.
The coefficient of x2 is 1.
(ii) The given polynomial is 2 – x2 + x3.
The coefficient of x2 is -1.
(iii) The given polynomial is $$\frac { \pi }{ 2 } { x }^{ 2 }$$ + x.
The coefficient of x2 is $$\frac { \pi }{ 2 }$$ .
(iv) The given polynomial is √2 x – 1.
The coefficient of x2 is 0.

#### Ex 2.1 Class 9 Maths Question 3.

Give one example each of a binomial of degree 35, and of a monomial of degree 100.
Solution:

(i) Abmomial of degree 35 can be 3x35 -4.
(ii) A monomial of degree 100 can be √2y100.

#### Ex 2.1 Class 9 Maths Question 4.

Write the degree of each of the following polynomials.
(i) 5x3+4x2 + 7x
(ii) 4 – y2
(iii) 5t – √7
(iv) 3
Solution:

(i) The given polynomial is 5x3 + 4x2 + 7x
The highest power of the variable x is 3.
Hence, the power of the polynomial is 3.
(ii) The given polynomial is 4- y2. Highest
The power of the variable y is 2.
Hence, the power of the polynomial is 2.
(iii) The given polynomial is 5t – √7 . The highest power of the variable t is 1. Hence, the power of the polynomial is 1.
(iv) Since,3 = 3x° [∵ x°=1]
So the power of the polynomial is 0.

#### Ex 2.1 Class 9 Maths Question 5.

Classify the following as linear, quadratic and cubic polynomials.
(i) x2+ x
(ii) x – x3
(iii) y + y2+4
(iv) 1 + x
(v) 3t
(vi) r2
(vii) 7x3

Solution:

(i) The power of x2 + x is 2. Hence, it is a quadratic polynomial.
(ii) The power of x – x3 is 3. Hence, it is a cubic polynomial.

(iii) The power of y + y2 + 4 is 2. Hence, it is a quadratic polynomial.

(iv) The power of 1 + x is 1. Hence it is a linear polynomial.
(v) The power of 3t is 1. Hence, it is a linear polynomial.
(vi) The power of r2 is 2. Hence, it is a quadratic polynomial.
(vii) The power of 7x3 is 3. Hence, it is a cubic polynomial.
