# Find the value of the following expressions, when x = -1:

(i) 2x - 7 (ii) - x + 2 (iii) x^{2 }+ 2x + 1 (iv) 2x^{2} - x - 2

**Solution:**

(i) 2x – 7

Since, it is given that x = -1

By substituting the value of x in the given expression, we get

= 2 × (-1) - 7

= - 2 - 7

= - 9

(ii) - x + 2

Since, it is given that x = -1

By substituting the value of x in the given expression, we get

= - (-1) + 2

= 1 + 2

= 3

(iii) x^{2} + 2x + 1

Since, it is given that x = -1

By substituting the value of x in the given expression, we get

= (-1)^{2} + 2 × (-1) + 1

= 1 - 2 + 1

= 2 - 2

= 0

(iv) 2x^{2} – x – 2

Since, it is given that x = -1

By substituting the value of x in the given expression, we get

= 2 × (-1)^{2} - (-1) - 2

= (2 × 1) + 1 – 2

= 2 + 1 – 2

= 3 – 2

= 1
