p = (2x^{2} + 3xy) – (x^{2} + xy + y^{2})

p = 2x^{2} + 3xy – x^{2} – xy – y^{2}

p = 2x^{2} – x^{2} + 3xy – xy – y^{2}

p = x^{2} + 2xy – y^{2}

**(b) What should be subtracted from 2a + 8b + 10 to get – 3a + 7b + 16?**

**Solution:-**

Let us assume x be the required term

Then,

2a + 8b + 10 – x = -3a + 7b + 16

x = (2a + 8b + 10) – (-3a + 7b + 16)

x = 2a + 8b + 10 + 3a – 7b – 16

x = 2a + 3a + 8b – 7b + 10 – 16

x = 5a + b – 6

**5. What should be taken away from 3x ^{2} – 4y^{2} + 5xy + 20 to obtain – x^{2} – y^{2} + 6xy + 20?**

**Solution:-**

Let us assume a be the required term

Then,

3x^{2} – 4y^{2} + 5xy + 20 – a = -x^{2} – y^{2} + 6xy + 20

a = 3x^{2} – 4y^{2} + 5xy + 20 – (-x^{2} – y^{2} + 6xy + 20)

a = 3x^{2} – 4y^{2} + 5xy + 20 + x^{2} + y^{2} – 6xy – 20

a = 3x^{2} + x^{2} – 4y^{2} + y^{2} + 5xy – 6xy + 20 – 20

a = 4x^{2} – 3y^{2} – xy

**6. (a) From the sum of 3x – y + 11 and – y – 11, subtract 3x – y – 11.**

**Solution:-**

First we have to find out the sum of 3x – y + 11 and – y – 11

= 3x – y + 11 + (-y – 11)

= 3x – y + 11 – y – 11

= 3x – y – y + 11 – 11

= 3x – 2y

Now, subtract 3x – y – 11 from 3x – 2y

= 3x – 2y – (3x – y – 11)

= 3x – 2y – 3x + y + 11

= 3x – 3x – 2y + y + 11

= -y + 11

**(b) From the sum of 4 + 3x and 5 – 4x + 2x ^{2}, subtract the sum of 3x^{2} – 5x and**

**–x ^{2} + 2x + 5.**

**Solution:-**

First we have to find out the sum of 4 + 3x and 5 – 4x + 2x^{2}

= 4 + 3x + (5 – 4x + 2x^{2})

= 4 + 3x + 5 – 4x + 2x^{2}

= 4 + 5 + 3x – 4x + 2x^{2}

= 9 – x + 2x^{2}

= 2x^{2} – x + 9 … [equation 1]

Then, we have to find out the sum of 3x^{2} – 5x and – x^{2} + 2x + 5

= 3x^{2} – 5x + (-x^{2} + 2x + 5)

= 3x^{2} – 5x – x^{2} + 2x + 5

= 3x^{2} – x^{2} – 5x + 2x + 5

= 2x^{2} – 3x + 5 … [equation 2]

Now, we have to subtract equation (2) from equation (1)

= 2x^{2 }– x + 9 – (2x^{2} – 3x + 5)

= 2x^{2} – x + 9 – 2x^{2} + 3x – 5

= 2x^{2} – 2x^{2} – x + 3x + 9 – 5

= 2x + 4
