PREFACE

Algebra is the branch of mathematics which deals with the study of rules of operations and relations, and
the concepts arising from them. It has wide applications in different fields of science and technology. It
deals with concepts like linear equations, quadratic equations, arithmetic and geometric progressions etc.
Its application in statistics deals with measures of central tendency, representation of statistical data etc.

The study of Algebra requires a deep and intrinsic understanding of concepts, terms and formulas.
Hence, to ease this task, we present Std. IX: Algebra, a complete and thorough guide, extensively
drafted to boost the students confidence. The topic-wise question and answer format of this book helps
the student to understand each and every concept thoroughly. It covers all the textual as well as higher
order thinking problems which are completely solved with accurate answers. The book also includes
detailed theory for every topic, definitions, formulas and procedures to solve the problems. Graphs are
drawn with proper scale with correct measures.
Lastly, I would like to thank all those who have helped me in preparing this book. There is always room
for improvement and hence I welcome all suggestions and regret any errors that may have occurred in
the making of this book.

A book affects eternity; one can never tell where its influence stops.

Best of luck to all the aspirants!

Yours faithfully

Example: There are two methods of writing a set:
i. Collection of odd natural numbers. a. Listing method or Roster form
ii. Collection of whole numbers. b. Rule method or set builder form

ii. For a set of whole numbers, elements are iv. The order of writing the elements in a

Example:

1. Let A = {1, 3, 5, 6, 7}, B = {4, 6, 7, 9}, then n(T C) = 80
verify the following identities: There are 80 students who either drink tea or
i. n (A B) = n(A) n(A B) coffee or both. But there are 100 students in
ii. n (A B) = n(A) + n(B) n(A B) the hostel.
Solution: Number of students who neither drink tea nor
i. (A B) = {1, 3, 5} n(A B) = 3 coffee are (100 80) = 20
(A B) = {6, 7} n(A B) = 2
Students who do not take tea or coffee = 20
A = {1, 3, 5, 6, 7} n(A) = 5
n(A) n(A B) = 5 2 = 3
4. 110 children choose their favourite colour
n(A B) = 3
from blue and pink. Every student has to
n(A B) = n(A) n(A B) choose atleast one of the colour. 60 children
ii. (A B) = {1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9} choose blue colour, while 70 children
n(A B) = 7 choose pink colour. How many children
A = {1, 3, 5, 6, 7} n(A) = 5 choose both the colours as their favourite
colour?
B = {4, 6, 7, 9} n(B) = 4
Solution:
(A B) = {6, 7} n(A B) = 2
Let the number of children who choose blue colour
n(A) + n(B) n(A B) = 5 + 4 2 = 7
be n(B) and number of children who choose pink
Also, n(A B) = 7 colour be n(P).
n(A B) = n(A) + n(B) n(A B) n(B) = 60 and n(P) = 70
Total number of children who choose their favourite
2. Let A and B be two sets such that n(A) = 5, colour from blue or pink.
