## Class 7 Maths NCERT Solutions Chapter 12 Algebraic Expressions Ex 12.1

Question 1.

Get the algebraic expressions in the following cases using variables, constants and arithmetic operations.

- Subtraction of z from y.
- One-half of the sum of numbers x and y.
- The number z multiplied by itself
- One-fourth of the product of numbers p and q.
- Numbers x and y both squared and added.

We know that an algebraic expression containing only one term is called a monomial. So, the monomials are : (ii), (iv), and (viii).

We know that an algebraic expression containing two terms is called a binomial. So, the binomials are : (i), (vi), (vii), (x) and (xi).

We know that an algebraic expression containing three terms is called a trinomial. So, the trinomial are : (iii), (v), (ix) and (xii).
