## Answers and Explanations

### Answer 1 (A)

- To find out common factor of given polynomial first we factorize the polynomial
- Factor of ,

- Now factor of another polynomial,

- Now from above HCF of given polynomial are as below,

### Answer 2 (A)

- To find HCF of given polynomial first we factorize given polynomial.
- Factor of

- Now factor of

- Now factor of

- Now from above HCF of given polynomial are as below,

**Hence Integer coefficient of the HCF of three terms is**

### Answer 2 (B)

- HCF of given polynomial is
- Hence only variable common to the three terms

### Answer 3 (A)

- To find HCF of given polynomial first we factorize given polynomial.
- Factor of

- Factor of

- Factor of

- Now for HCF of integer coefficient we can easily find it out by its factorize form and for variable (a, b, c) we take least power of variable among all three polynomial
- For example for variable āaā is least power among all three polynomial hence for variable āaā we take as a part of HCF.
- Hence

- Hence from HCF integer coefficient ofHCF of the three terms is

### Answer 3 (B)

- HCF of given polynomial is
- Hence power of āaā in the HCF of the three terms

### Answer 3 (C)

- HCF of given polynomial is
- Hence power of ācā in the HCF of the three terms

### Answer 4 (A)

- To find HCF of given polynomial first we factorize given polynomial.
- Factor of

- And factor of

- Hence HCF is
- Now,

### Answer 4 (B)

- To find HCF of given polynomial first we factorize given polynomial.
- Factor of

- And factor of

- Hence HCF is

- Now,

### Answer 5 (A)

- To find HCF of given polynomial first we factorize given polynomial.
- Factor of

- Factor of

- Hence HCF is

- Now,

### Answer 5 (B)

- To find HCF of given polynomial first we factorize given polynomial.
- Factor of

- Factor of

- Hence HCF is

- Now,

### Answer 6 (A)

- Hence ,

### Answer 6 (B)

- Therefore,

### Answer 6 (C)

- Therefore,

### Answer 7 (A)

- Compare this equation with identities
- Hence ,

- Now compare with identities
- Hence

- Now Compare with identities
- Hence

- Hence from Equation 1,2 and 3

### Answer 8 (A)

- Compare this equation with identities
- Hence

- Hence

- Hence,

### Answer 9 (A)

- Given equation,
- Now Guess
- Hence our equation is

- Compare this equation with identities
- Hence we have,

- Hence

- Now put the value of in above equation,

- Hence,

### Answer 10 (A)

- Now to factorize given equation; we made by summation of two such part that are factor of multiplication of coefficient of
- Hence
- Multiplication of coefficient
- Now,

- So,

- Hence,

### Answer 11 (A)
