**Ex 11.3 Class 6 Maths Question 1.**

**Make up as many expressions with numbers (no variables) as you can from three numbers 5, 7 and 8. Every number should be used not more than once. Use only addition, subtractions and multiplication.**

**Solution:**

Given numbers are 5, 7 and 8.

Expressions are:

(i) 8 + (5 + 7)

(ii) 5 + (8 – 7)

(iii) 8 + (5 x 7)

(iv) 7 – (8 – 5)

(v) 7 x (8 + 5)

(vi) 5 x (8 + 7)

(vii) 8 x (5 + 7)

(viii) 7 + (8 – 5)

(ix) (5 x 7) – 8

(x) 7 + (8 x 5)

**Ex 11.3 Class 6 Maths Question 2.**

**Which out of the following are expressions with numbers only?**

**(a) y + 3**

**(b) (7 x 20) – 8z**

**(c) 5(21 – 7) + 7 x 2**

**(d) 5**

**(e) 3x**

**(f) 5 – 5n**

**(g) (7 x 20) – (5 x 10) – 45 +p**

**Solution:**

(a) y + 3. This expression has variable ‘y’.

(b) (7 x 20) – 8z. This expression has a variable ‘z’.

(c) 5(21 -7) + 7 x 2. This expression has no variable. So it is with numbers only.

(d) 5. This expression is with numbers only.

(e) 3x. This expression has a variable ‘x’.

(f) 5 – 5n. This expression has a variable ‘n’.

(g) (7 x 20) – (5 x 10) – 45 + p. This expression has a variable ‘p’.

**Ex 11.3 Class 6 Maths Question 3.**

(b) | (i) | 17y | Multiplication | y is multiplied by 17 |

(ii) | y/17 | Division | y is Divided by 17 | |

(iii) | 5z | Multiplication | z is Multiplied by 5 | |

(c) | (i) | 2y + 17 | Multiplication and addition | y is multiplied by 2 and then 17 is added. |

(ii) | 2y -17 | Multiplication and subtraction | Twice of y is decreased by 17 | |

(d) | (i) | 7 m | Multiplication | m is multiplied by 7 |

(ii)- | -7m + 3 | Multiplication and addition | m is multiplied by -7 and then increased by 3 | |

(iii) | -7m – 3 | Multiplication and subtraction | M is multiplied by -7 and then decreased by 3 |

**Ex 11.3 Class 6 Maths Question 4.**

**Give expressions for the follow**

**(c) 5 times y to which 3 is added**

**(d) 5 times y from which 3 is subtracted**

**(e) y is multiplied by -8**

**(f) y is multiplied by -8 and then 5 is added to the result**

**(g) y is multiplied by 5 and the result is subtracted from 16**

**(h) y is multiplied by -5 and the result is added to 16.**

**Solution:**

(a) 2m + 11

(b) 2m – 11
