**CBSE Class 9 Maths Lab Manual – Algebraic Identity (a + b)**^{2} = a^{2} + 2ab + b^{2}

^{2}= a

^{2}+ 2ab + b

^{2}

**Objective**

To verify the identity (a + b)^{2} = a^{2} + 2ab + b^{2} by paper cutting and pasting.

**Prerequisite Knowledge**

- Area of a square = (side)
^{2}. - Area of a rectangle = l x b.

**Materials Required**

A sheet of white paper, three sheets of glazed paper (different colours), a pair of scissors, gluestick and a geometry box.

**Procedure**

Take distinct values of a and b, say a = 4 units, b = 2 units

- Cut a square of side a (say 4 units) on a glazed paper (blue).
- Cut a square of side b (say 2 units) on glazed paper (pink).
- Now, cut two rectangles of length a (4 units) and breadth b (2 units) from third glazed paper (red).

- Draw a square PQRS of (a+ b) = (4 + 2), 6 units on white paper sheet as shown in fig. (i).
- Paste the squares I and II and two rectangles III and IV on the same white squared paper. Arrange all the pieces on the white square sheet in such a way that they form a square ABCD fig. (ii)

**Observation**

- Area of the square PQRS on the white sheet paper.

(a+b)^{2}= (4+2)^{2}= 6 x 6 = 36 sq. units ……….(i) - Area of two coloured squares I and II

area of Ist square = a^{2}= 4^{2}= 16 sq.units

area of IInd square = b^{2}= 2^{2}= 4 sq.units - Area of two coloured rectangles III and IV = 2(a x b) = 2(4 x 2) = 16 sq. units

Now, total area of four quadrilaterals (calculated)

= a^{2}+ b^{2}+ 2(ab)

= 16+4+16

= 36 sq. units ……….(ii)

Area of square ABCD = Total area of four quadrilaterals = 36 sq. units

Equating (i) and (ii)

Area of square PQRS = Area of square ABCD

i.e., (a+b)^{2}= a^{2}+ b^{2}+ 2ab

**Result**

Algebraic identity (a+b)^{2} = a^{2} + 2ab + b^{2} is verified.

**Learning Outcome**

The identity (a+b)^{2} = a^{2} + 2ab + b^{2} is verified by cutting and pasting of paper. This identity can be verified geometrically by taking other values of a and b.

**Activity Time**

Divide a square plot into four parts (quadrilaterals) such that two parts have same area and other two are squares.
