SUMMARY:

Important Formulae:

1) (a + b) 2 = a2 + 2ab + b2

2) (a - b) 2 = a2 - 2ab + b2

3) (a + b) 3 = a3 + 3a2b + 3ab2 + b3 = a3 + b3 + 3ab (a + b)

4) (a - b) 3 = a3 - 3a2b + 3ab2 - b3 = a3 - b3 - 3ab (a - b)

5) (a3 + b3) = (a + b) (a2 - ab + b2)

6) (a3 - b3) = (a - b) (a2 + ab + b2)

7) (a2 - b2) = (a + b) (a - b)

8) (a3 + b3 + c3 - 3abc) = (a + b + c) (a2 + b2 + c2 - ab - bc - ca)

9) (a3 + b3 + c3) = 3abc if a+b+c=0

10) (a + b + c) 2 = a2 + b2 + c2 + 2ab + 2bc + 2ca

Linear equation in one variable:

An equation involving a variable in the first degree is called a linear equation in one variable. It is of the form ax + b = 0, a≠0, x is variable.

X= -b/a is the root or solution of this equation.

Quadratic Equation:

An equation of the form ax2 + bx + c = 0, where a, b, c are constant and a≠0, is called a quadratic equation in one variable ‘x’.
