# Algebra | Free Online Test and Practice

“Algebra” is a common chapter in many competitive exams such as SSC, Bank, UPSC  and other exams. Many students practice a lot of Algebra Formula and equations to make his and her calculation strong. Sometimes, A student gets confused at the time of choosing the right answer among the given options.

## Basic Algebra formula to improve accuracy.

• a2 + b2 = (a + b)2 – 2ab
• a2 – b2 = (a – b)(a + b)
• (a+b)2 = a2 + 2ab + b2
• (a – b)2 = a2 – 2ab + b2
• (a + b + c)2 = a2 + b2 + c2 + 2ab + 2bc + 2ca
• (a – b – c)2 = a2 + b2 + c2 – 2ab + 2bc – 2ca
• a3 – b3 = (a – b)(a2 + ab + b2)
• a3 + b3 = (a + b)(a2 – ab + b2)
• (a + b)3 = a3 + 3a2b + 3ab2 + b3 ; (a + b)3 = a3 + b3 + 3ab(a + b)
• (a – b)3 = a3 – 3a2b + 3ab2 – b3
• a4 – b4 = (a – b)(a + b)(a2 + b2)
• (a + b)4 = a4 + 4a3b + 6a2b2 + 4ab3 + b4
• (a – b)4 = a4 – 4a3b + 6a2b2 – 4ab3 + b4
• a5 – b5 = (a – b)(a4 + a3b + a2b2 + ab3 + b4)

## Let’s have some warm-up questions before taking the test…

1. If x = 2 then the value of x3 + 27x2 + 243x + 631 is…..?
A. 1213
B. 1233
C. 1336
D. 1356
Ans: B
Solution
Given equation,
f(x) = x3 + 27x2 + 243x + 631
⇒ x(x2 + 27x+ 243) + 631
Now, put the value of x = 2
⇒ 2(22 + 27 × 2 + 243) + 631 ⇒ 2 (4 + 54 + 243) + 631
⇒ 2(301) + 631 = 602 + 631 = 1233.

2. The expression x4 – 2x2 + k will be a perfect square when the value of k is….?
A. 1
B. 0
C. -1
D. 2
Ans: A
Solution
Let’s assume x2 = m, therefore the given eq. will be:
m2 – 2m + k which is a quadratic equation (ax2 + bx + c).
Now we know that a quadratic eqn. is a perfect square if its discriminant (b2 – 4ac) is equal to zero.
In the eq. a = 1, b = – 2, c = k
∴    (– 2)2 – 4 (1).k = 0
–4k = –4
k = 1

3. If x2 + y2 + 1 = 2x, then the value of x3 + y5 is…..?
A. 1
B. -2
C. 2
D. -1
Ans: A
Solution
x2 + y2 + 1 = 2x
⇒ x2 + y2 + 1 – 2x = 0 ⇒ x2 – 2x + 1 + y2 = 0
⇒ (x – 1)2 + y2 = 0
In the above eq. the L.H.S. only becomes zero when the base of terms; (x – 1) and y becomes zero because for any other value the sum of their squares shall always be a positive integer.
Taking (x – 1) = 0
and y = 0
Therefore, x = 1 and y = 0
∴     x3 + y5 = 1 + 0 = 1.

### You are doing well, Let’s have a few more question…

4. If x = 2015, y = 2014 and z = 2013, then value of x2 + y2 + z2 – xy – yz – zx is…?
A. 12
B. 9
C. 3
D. 6
Ans: C
Solution
x – y = 2015 – 2014 = 1
y – z = 2014 – 2013 = 1
z – x = 2013 – 2015 = –2
∴ x2 + y2 + z2 – xy – yz – zx
Numerator & denominator multiplied by 2
= 1/2 (2x2 + 2y2 + 2z2 – 2xy – 2yz – 2zx) ⇒ 1/2 (x2 + y2 – 2xy + y2 + z2 – 2yz + z2 + x2 – 2zx)
= 1/2 [(x– y)2 + (y – z)2 + (z – x)2] ⇒ 1/2 [1 + 1 + 4] = 1/2 × 6 = 3

5. Consider the following statements
I. x + 3 is the factor of x3 + 2x2 + 3x + 8.
II. x – 2 is the factor of x3 + 2x2 + 3x + 8.
Which of the statements given above is/are correct?

A. Only I
B. Only II
C. Neither I nor II
D. Both I and II
Ans:C
Solution
Put x = –3 in equation x3 + 2x2 + 3x + 8
= (–3)3 + 2(–3)2 + 3(–3) + 8
= –10 ≠ 0
So, (x + 3) is not the factor of x3 + 2x2 + 3x + 8
Similarly, put x = 2 in above equation
= (2)3 + 2(2)2 + 3(2) + 8
= 30 ≠ 0
So, (x – 2) is also not the factor of x3 + 2x2 + 3x + 8.
