(a) Given Munnu's age to be $ x $ years, can you guess what $ (x-2) $ may show? (Hint : Think of Munnu's younger brother.)
Can you guess what $ (x+4) $ may show? What $ (3 x+7) $ may show?
(b) Given Sara's age today to be $ y $ years. Think of her age in the future or in the past. What will the following expression indicate? $ y+7, y-3, y+4 \frac{1}{2}, y-2 \frac{1}{2} $.
(c) Given $ n $ students in the class like football, what may $ 2 n $ show? What may $ \frac{n}{2} $ show? (Hint : Think of games other than football).

To do:

We have to answer the given questions.

Solutions:

(a) Munnu\'s age is \( x \) years.

$(x - 2)$ represents the age of the person who is 2 years younger than Munnu.

$(x + 4)$ represents the age of the person who is 4 years elder than Munnu.

$(3x + 7)$ represents the age of the person who is elder to Munnu and his age is 7 years more than three times the age of Munnu.

(b) Sara\'s age today is \( y \) years.

$(y + 7)$ represents the age of the person who is 7 years elder than Sara.

$(y - 3)$ represents the age of the person who is 3 years younger than Sara.

$y+4 \frac{1}{2}$ represents the age of the person who is $y+4 \frac{1}{2}$ years elder than Sara.

$y-2 \frac{1}{2}$ represents the age of the person who is $y-2 \frac{1}{2}$ years younger than Sara.

(c) Number of students who like football $=n$

$2n$ represents the number of students who like either football or some other game like basketball.

$\frac{n}{2}$ represents the number of students who like basketball out of the total number of students who like football.
