# Using (x + a)(x + b) = x^{2} + (a + b)x + ab

(i) 103 × 104 (ii) 5.1 × 5.2 (iii) 103 × 98 (iv) 9.7 × 9.8

**Solution:**

We will be using the algebraic Identity (x + a)(x + b) = x^{2} + (a + b)x + ab

(i) 103 × 104

= (100 + 3)(100 + 4)

= (100)^{2} + (3 + 4)(100) + (3)(4)

= 10000 + 700 + 12

= 10712

(ii) 5.1 × 5.2

= (5 + 0.1)(5 + 0.2)

= (5)^{2} + (0.1 + 0.2)(5) + (0.1)(0.2)

= 25 + 1.5 + 0.02

= 26.52

(iii) 103 × 98

= (100 + 3)(100 - 2)

= (100)^{2} + [3 + (-2)](100) + (3)(-2)

= 10000 + 100 - 6

= 10094

(iv) 9.7 × 9.8

= (10 - 0.3)(10 - 0.2)

= (10)^{2} + [(-0.3) + (-0.2)](10) + (-0.3)(-0.2)

= 100 + (- 0.5)10 + 0.06

= 100 - 5 + 0.06

= 95.06
