waecmaths question: 

Subtract  $\tfrac{1}{2}(a-b-c)$ from the sum of $\tfrac{1}{2}(a-b+c)$and $\tfrac{1}{2}(a+b-c)$

Option A: 

$\tfrac{1}{2}(a+b+c)$

Option B: 

$\tfrac{1}{2}(a-b-c)$

Option C: 

$\tfrac{1}{2}(a-b+c)$

Option D: 

$\tfrac{1}{2}(a+b-c)$

waecmaths solution: 

\[\begin{align}  & [\tfrac{1}{2}(a-b+c)+\tfrac{1}{2}(a+b-c)]-[\tfrac{1}{2}(a-b-c)]=\tfrac{1}{2}[a-b+c+a+b-c]-[\tfrac{1}{2}(a-b-c)] \\ & =\tfrac{1}{2}[2a]-\tfrac{1}{2}[a-b-c] \\ & =\tfrac{1}{2}[2a-a+b+c] \\ & =\tfrac{1}{2}[a+b+c] \end{align}\]
