## Linear Equation

**What is Linear equation in one Variable**

We will restrict the above equation with two conditions

(a) algebraic equation in one variable

(b) variable will have power 1 only

or

An equation of the form ax + b = 0, where a and b are real numbers, such that a is not equal to zero, is called a linear equation in one variables

Linear equation in One variable has only one Solution. It can be solved as given below

## Laws Of Exponents

Here are the laws of exponents when *a *and *b *are
non-zero integers and *m*, *n *are any integers.

a^{-m} = 1/a^{m}

a^{m} / a^{n} = a^{m-n}

(a^{m} )^{n} =
a^{mn}

a^{m} x b^{m } = (ab)^{m}

a^{m} / b^{m } = (a/b)^{m}

a^{0} =1

(a/b)^{-m} =(b/a)^{m}

(1)* ^{n} *= 1 for infinitely many

*n*. (-1)

^{p}=1 for any even integer p

## Algebraic Expressions and Identities

**Algebraic expression**

It is the expression having constants and variable. It can have multiple variable and multiple power of the variable

## Factorisation

**Factorisation of algebraic expression**

When we factorise an algebraic expression, we write it as a product of factors. These

factors may be numbers, algebraic variables or algebraic expressions

The expression 6*x *(*x *– 2). It can be written as a product of factors.

2,3, *x *and (*x *– 2)

$6*x *(*x *– 2) =2 \times 3 \times *x* \times (*x *– 2)$

The factors 2,3, *x *and (*x *+2) are irreducible factors of 6*x *(*x *+ 2).

**Method of Factorisation**

**Division of algebraic expression**

Division of algebraic expression is performed by Factorisation of both the numerator and denominator and then cancelling the common factors.**Steps of Division**

(1) Identify the Numerator and denominator

(2) Factorise both the Numerator and denominator by the technique of Factorisation using common factor, regrouping, identities and splitting

(3) Identify the common factor between numerator and denominator

(4) Cancel the common factors and finalize the result

**Example**

$\frac {48 (x^2yz+ xy^2z+ xyz^2)}{4xyz}$

$=\frac {48xyz (x + y + z)}{4xyz}$

$= 12 (x + y + z)$

Here Dividend=48 (*x ^{2}yz *+

*xy*+

^{2}z*xyz*)

^{2}Divisor=4

*xyz*

*Quotient=*12 (

*x*+

*y*+

*z*)

So, we have

Dividend = Divisor × Quotient.

In general, however, the relation is

Dividend = Divisor × Quotient + Remainder

When reminder is not zero
