**Exercise 3.1**

- Aftab tells his daughter, “Seven years ago, I was seven times as old as you were then. Also, three years from now, I shall be three times as old as you will be.” (Isn’t this interesting?) Represent this situation algebraically and graphically.

**Solution:**

Let present age of Aftab be *x*

And, present age of daughter is represented by *y*

Then Seven years ago,

Age of Aftab = *x *-7

Age of daughter = *y*-7

According to the question,

(*x *– 7) = 7 (*y *– 7 )

*x *– 7 = 7 *y *– 49

*x*– 7*y *= – 49 + 7

*x *– 7*y* = – 42 …**(i)**

*x* = 7*y* – 42

Putting *y* = 5, 6 and 7, we get

*x* = 7 × 5 – 42 = 35 – 42 = – 7

*x* = 7 × 6 – 42 = 42 – 42 = 0

*x* = 7 × 7 – 42 = 49 – 42 = 7

x | -7 | 0 | 7 |

y | 5 | 6 | 7 |

Three years from now ,

Age of Aftab = *x *+3

Age of daughter = *y *+3

According to the question,

(*x *+ 3) = 3 (*y *+ 3)

*x *+ 3 = 3*y *+ 9

*x *-3*y *= 9-3

*x *-3*y *= 6 …**(ii)**

*x *= 3*y *+ 6

Putting, *y *= -2,-1 and 0, we get

*x *= 3 × – 2 + 6 = -6 + 6 =0

*x *= 3 × – 1 + 6 = -3 + 6 = 3

*x *= 3 × 0 + 6 = 0 + 6 = 6

x | 0 | 3 | 6 |

y | -2 | -1 | 0 |

Algebraic representation

From equation **(i)** and **(ii)**

*x *– 7*y *= – 42 …**(i)**

*x *– 3*y *= 6 …**(ii)**

Graphical representation

- The coach of a cricket team buys 3 bats and 6 balls for Rs 3900. Later, she buys another bat and 3 more balls of the same kind for Rs 1300. Represent this situation algebraically and geometrically.

**Solution:**

Let cost of one bat = Rs *x*

Cost of one ball = Rs *y*

3 bats and 6 balls for Rs 3900 So that

3*x *+ 6*y* = 3900 … **(i)**

Dividing equation by 3, we get

*x *+ 2*y* = 1300

Subtracting 2*y* both side we get

*x* = 1300 – 2*y *

Putting *y* = -1300, 0 and 1300 we get

*x* = 1300 – 2 (-1300) = 1300 + 2600 = 3900

*x *= 1300 -2(0) = 1300 – 0 = 1300

*x* = 1300 – 2(1300) = 1300 – 2600 = – 1300

x | 3900 | 1300 | -1300 |

y | -1300 | 0 | 1300 |

Given that she buys another bat and 2 more balls of the same kind for Rs 1300

So, we get

*x* + 2*y *= 1300 … **(ii)**

Subtracting 2y both side we get

*x *= 1300 – 2*y*

Putting *y* = – 1300, 0 and 1300 we get

*x* = 1300 – 2 (-1300) = 1300 + 2600 = 3900

*x *= 1300 – 2 (0) = 1300 – 0 = 1300

*x *= 1300 – 2(1300) = 1300 – 2600 = -1300

x | 3900 | 1300 | -1300 |

y | -1300 | 0 | 1300 |

Algebraic representation

3*x *+ 6*y* = 3900 … **(i)**

*x *+ 2*y *= 1300 … **(ii)**

- The cost of 2 kg of apples and 1kg of grapes on a day was found to be Rs 160. After a month, the cost of 4 kg of apples and 2 kg of grapes is Rs 300. Represent the situation algebraically and geometrically.

**Solution:**

Let cost each kg of apples = Rs *x*

Cost of each kg of grapes = Rs *y*

Given that the cost of 2 kg of apples and 1kg of grapes on a day was found to be Rs 160

So that

2 *x *+ *y *= 160 … **(i)**

2*x* = 160 – *y*

*x* = (160 – *y*)/2

Let *y* = 0 , 80 and 160, we get

*x* = (160 – ( 0 )/2 = 80

*x* = (160- 80 )/2 = 40

*x* = (160 – 2 × 80)/2 = 0

x | 80 | 40 | 0 |

y | 0 | 80 | 160 |

Given that the cost of 4 kg of apples and 2 kg of grapes is Rs 300

So we get

4*x* + 2*y *= 300 … **(ii)**

Dividing by 2 we get

2*x* + *y* = 150

Subtracting 2*x* both side, we get

*y *= 150 – 2*x*

Putting *x* = 0 , 50 , 100 we get

*y *= 150 – 2 × 0 = 150

*y *= 150 – 2 × 50 = 50

*y *= 150 – 2 × (100) = -50

x | 0 | 50 | 100 |

y | 150 | 50 | -50 |

Algebraic representation,

2*x *+ *y* = 160 … **(i)**

4*x* + 2*y* = 300 … **(ii)**

** ****Exercise 3.2**

**Form the pair of linear equations in the following problems, and find their solutions graphically.**

(i) 10 students of Class X took part in a Mathematics quiz. If the number of girls is 4 more than the number of boys, find the number of boys and girls who took part in the quiz.

**Solution:**

Let number of boys = *x*

Number of girls = *y*

Given that total number of student is 10 so that

*x *+ *y *= 10

Subtract y both side we get

*x *= 10 – *y*

Putting *y *= 0 , 5, 10 we get

*x *= 10 – 0 = 10

*x *= 10 – 5 = 5

*x *= 10 – 10 = 0

x | 10 | 5 |

y | 0 | 5 |

Given that If the number of girls is 4 more than the number of boys

So that

*y *= *x *+ 4

Putting *x* = -4, 0, 4, and we get

*y *= – 4 + 4 = 0

*y *= 0 + 4 = 4

*y *= 4 + 4 = 8

x | -4 | 0 | 4 |

y | 0 | 4 | 8 |

Graphical representation

Therefore, number of boys = 3 and number of girls = 7.

**(ii)** 5 pencils and 7 pens together cost Rs 50, whereas 7 pencils and 5 pens together cost Rs 46. Find the cost of one pencil and that of one pen.

**Solution:**

Let cost of pencil = Rs *x*

Cost of pens = Rs *y*

5 pencils and 7 pens together cost Rs 50,

So we get

5*x* + 7*y* = 50

Subtracting 7*y* both sides we get

5*x* = 50 – 7*y*

Dividing by 5 we get

*x* = 10 – 7 y /5

Putting value of *y* = 5 , 10 and 15 we get

*x* = 10 – 7 × 5/5 = 10 – 7 = 3

*x* = 10 – 7 × 10/5 = 10 – 14 = – 4

*x* = 10 – 7 × 15/5 = 10 – 21 = – 11

x | 3 | -4 | -11 |

y | 5 | 10 | 15 |

Given that 7 pencils and 5 pens together cost Rs 46

7*x* + 5*y* = 46

Subtracting 7*x* both side we get

5*y* = 46 – 7*x*

Dividing by 5 we get

*y* = 46/5 – 7*x*/5

y = 9.2 – 1.4*x*

Putting *x* = 0 , 2 and 4 we get

*y* = 9.2 – 1.4 × 0 = 9.2 – 0 = 9.2

*y* = 9.2 – 1.4 (2) = 9.2 – 2.8 = 6.4

*y* = 9.2 – 1.4 (4) = 9.2 – 5.6 = 3.6

x | 0 | 2 | 4 |

y | 9.2 | 6.4 | 3.6 |

Graphical representation

Therefore, cost of one pencil = Rs 3 and cost of one pen = Rs 5.

- On comparing the ratios
*a**₁*/*a**₂*,*b**₁*/*b₂*and*C**₁*/*c₂*, find out whether the lines representing the following pairs of linear equations intersect at a point, are parallel or coincident.

**Solution:**

(i) 5*x* – 4*y* + 8 = 0

7*x* + 6*y* – 9 = 0

Comparing these equation with

*a**₁**x* + *b**₁**y* + *C**₁* = 0

*a**₂**x* + *b**₂**y* + *C**₂*= 0

We get

*a**₁* = 5, *b**₁*= -4, and *C**₁* = 8

*a**₂*=7, *b₂* = 6 and C₂= -9

*a₁/a₂ = 5/7, b₁/ b₂ = -4/6 and C₁/C₂= 8/-9 Hence, a₁/a₂ ≠ b₁/b₂*

Therefore, both are intersecting lines at one point.

We get

*a**₁* = 9, *b**₁*= 3, and *C**₁* = 12

*a**₂* = 18, *b₂* = 6 and *C**₂*= 24

*a**₁*/*a**₂* = 9/18 = 1/2

*b**₁*/*b₂* = 3/6 = 1/2 and

*C**₁*/*C**₂*= 12/24 = 1/2

Hence, *a**₁*/*a**₂* = *b**₁*/*b₂*_{ }=_{ }*C**₁*/C*₂*

Therefore, both lines are coincident

(iii) 6*x* – 3*y* + 10 = 0

2*x* – *y* + 9 = 0

Comparing these equations with

*a**₁**x* + *b**₁**y* + *c**₁* = 0

*a**₂**x* + *b**₂**y* + *c**₂*= 0

We get

*a**₁* = 6, *b**₁*= -3, and *C**₁* = 10

*a**₂* = 2, *b₂* = -1 and C₂= 9

*a**₁*/*a**₂* = 6/2 = 3/1

*b**₁*/*b₂* = -3/-1 = 3/1 and

*C**₁*/*C**₂*= 12/24 = 1/2

Hence, *a**₁*/a₂ = *b**₁*/*b₂*_{ }≠_{ }*C**₁*/*c₂*

Therefore, both lines are parallel

**Exercise 3.3**

**Solve the following pair of linear equations by the substitution method.**

(i) *x *+ *y *= 14 ; *x *– *y *= 4

(ii) *s *– *t *= 3 ; *s*/3 + *t*/2 = 6

(iii) 3*x* – *y* = 3 ; 9*x* – 3*y* = 9

(iv) 0.2*x* + 0.3*y* = 1.3 ; 0.4*x* + 0.5*y* = 2.3

(v) √2*x*+ √3*y* = 0 ; √3*x* – √8*y* = 0

(vi) 3/2*x* – 5/3*y* = -2 ; *x*/3 + *y*/2 = 13/6

**Solution:**

(i) *x* + *y* = 14 … **(i)**

*x* – *y* = 4 … **(ii)**

From equation **(i)**, we get

*x* = 14 – *y* … **(iii)**

Putting this value in equation **(ii)**, we get

(14 – *y*) – y = 4

14 – 2*y* = 4

10 = 2*y*

*y *= 5 … **(iv)**

Putting this in equation **(iii)**, we get

*x *= 9

∴ *x *= 9 and *y* = 5

(ii) *s *– *t *= 3 … **(i)**

*s*/3 + *t*/2 = 6 … **(ii)**

From equation **(i)**, we get*s *= *t* + 3

Putting this value in equation **(ii)**, we get

*t*+3/3 + *t*/2 = 6

2*t* + 6 + 3t = 36

5*t* = 30

*t* = 30/5 … **(iv)**

Putting in equation **(iii)**, we obtain

*s* = 9

∴ *s* = 9, *t* = 6

(iii) 3*x* – *y *= 3 … **(i)**

9*x* – 3*y* = 9 … **(ii)**

From equation **(i)**, we get

*y* = 3*x* – 3 … **(iii)**

Putting this value in equation **(ii)**, we get

9*x* – 3(3*x* – 3) = 9

9*x* – 9*x* + 9 = 9

9 = 9

This is always true.

Hence, the given pair of equations has infinite possible solutions and the relation between these variables can be given by

*y* = 3*x* – 3

Therefore, one of its possible solutions is *x* = 1, *y* = 0.

(iv) 0.2*x* + 0.3*y* = 1.3 … **(i) **

0.4*x* + 0.5*y* = 2.3 … **(ii)**

0.2*x* + 0.3y = 1.3

Solving equation **(i)**, we get

0.2*x* = 1.3 – 0.3*y*

Dividing by 0.2, we get

*x* = 1.3/0.2 – 0.3/0.2

*x* = 6.5 – 1.5 *y* …**(iii)**

Putting the value in equation **(ii)**, we get

0.4*x* + 0.5*y* = 2.3

(6.5 – 1.5*y*) × 0.4*x* + 0.5*y* = 2.3

2.6 – 0.6*y* + 0.5*y* = 2.3

-0.1*y* = 2.3 – 2.6

*y *= -0.3/-0.1

*y* = 3

Putting this value in equation **(iii)** we get

*x* = 6.5 – 1.5 *y*

*x* = 6.5 – 1.5(3)

*x* = 6.5 – 4.5

*x* = 2

∴ *x *= 2 and *y* = 3

- Solve 2
*x*+ 3*y*= 11 and 2*x*– 4*y*= – 24 and hence find the value of ‘*m*‘ for which*y*=*mx*+ 3.

**Solution:**

2*x* + 3*y *= 11 … **(i)**

Subtracting 3*y* both side we get

2*x* = 11 – 3*y* … **(ii)**

Putting this value in equation second we get

2*x* – 4*y* = – 24 … **(iii)**

11- 3*y* – 4*y* = – 24

7*y* = – 24 – 11

-7*y* = – 35

*y* = – 35/-7

*y* = 5

Putting this value in equation **(iii)** we get

2*x* = 11 – 3 × 5

2*x* = 11- 15

2*x* = – 4

Dividing by 2 we get

*x* = – 2

Putting the value of *x* and *y*

*y* = *mx* + 3.

5 = -2*m* +3

2*m* = 3 – 5

*m* = -2/2

*m* = -1

**Form the pair of linear equations for the following problems and find their solution by substitution method**

(i) The difference between two numbers is 26 and one number is three times the other. Find them.

**Solution:**

Let larger number = *x*

Smaller number = y

The difference between two numbers is 26

*x* – *y* = 26

*x* = 26 + *y*

Given that one number is three times the other

So *x* = 3*y*

Putting the value of *x* we get

26*y* = 3*y*

-2*y* = – 2 6

*y* = 13

So value of *x* = 3*y*

Putting value of *y*, we get

*x* = 3 × 13 = 39

Hence the numbers are 13 and 39.

(ii) The larger of two supplementary angles exceeds the smaller by 18 degrees. Find them.

**Solution:**

Let first angle = *x*

And second number = *y*

As both angles are supplementary so that sum will 180

*x* + *y* = 180

x = 180 – *y* … **(i)**

Difference is 18 degree so that

*x* – *y* = 18

Putting the value of *x *we get

180 – *y* – *y* = 18

– 2*y* = -162

*y* = -162/-2

*y* = 81

Putting the value back in equation **(i)**, we get

*x* = 180 – 81 = 99Hence, the angles are 99º and 81º.

(iii) The coach of a cricket team buys 7 bats and 6 balls for Rs 3800. Later, she buys 3 bats and 5 balls for Rs 1750. Find the cost of each bat and each ball.

**Solution:**

Let cost of each bat = Rs *x*

Cost of each ball = Rs *y*

Given that coach of a cricket team buys 7 bats and 6 balls for Rs 3800.

7*x* + 6*y* = 3800

6*y* = 3800 – 7*x*

Dividing by 6, we get

*y* = (3800 – 7*x*)/6 … **(i)**

Given that she buys 3 bats and 5 balls for Rs 1750 later.

3*x* + 5*y *= 1750

Putting the value of *y*

3*x* + 5 ((3800 – 7*x*)/6) = 1750

Multiplying by 6, we get

18*x* + 19000 – 35*x* = 10500

-17*x* =10500 – 19000

-17*x* = -8500

*x* = – 8500/- 17

*x *= 500

Putting this value in equation **(i)** we get

*y *= ( 3800 – 7 × 500)/6

*y *= 300/6

*y *= 50

Hence cost of each bat = Rs 500 and cost of each balls = Rs 50.

(iv) The taxi charges in a city consist of a fixed charge together with the charge for the distance covered. For a distance of 10 km, the charge paid is Rs 105 and for a journey of 15 km, the charge paid is Rs 155. What are the fixed charges and the charge per km? How much does a person have to pay for traveling a distance of 25 km?

**Solution:**

Let the fixed charge for taxi = Rs *x*

And variable cost per km = Rs *y*

Total cost = fixed charge + variable charge

Given that for a distance of 10 km, the charge paid is Rs 105

*x* + 10*y* = 105 … **(i)**

*x* = 105 – 10*y*

Given that for a journey of 15 km, the charge paid is Rs 155

*x* + 15*y* = 155

Putting the value of *x* we get

105 – 10*y* + 15*y* = 155

5*y* = 155 – 105

5*y* = 50

Dividing by 5, we get

*y* = 50/5 = 10

Putting this value in equation **(i)** we get

*x *= 105 – 10 × 10

*x *= 5

People have to pay for traveling a distance of 25 km

= *x* + 25*y*

= 5 + 25 × 10

= 5 + 250

=255

A person have to pay Rs 255 for 25 Km.

(v) A fraction becomes 9/11, if 2 is added to both the numerator and the denominator. If, 3 is added to both the numerator and the denominator it becomes 5/6 . Find the fraction.

**Solution:**

Let Numerator = *x*

Denominator = *y*

Fraction will = *x*/*y*

A fraction becomes 9/11, if 2 is added to both the numerator and the denominator

(*x* + 2)/*y*+2 = 9/11

By Cross multiplication, we get

11*x* + 22 = 9*y* + 18

Subtracting 22 both side, we get

11*x* = 9*y* – 4

Dividing by 11, we get

*x *= 9*y* – 4/11 … **(i)**

Given that 3 is added to both the numerator and the denominator it becomes 5/6.

If, 3 is added to both the numerator and the denominator it becomes 5/6

(*x*+3)/*y *+3 = 5/6 … **(ii)**

By Cross multiplication, we get

6*x* + 18 = 5*y* + 15

Subtracting the value of *x,* we get

6(9*y* – 4 )/11 + 18 = 5*y* + 15

Subtract 18 both side we get

6(9*y* – 4 )/11 = 5*y* – 3

54 – 24 = 55*y *– 33

–*y* = -9

*y* = 9

Putting this value of y in equation **(i)**, we get

*x *= 9*y* – 4

11 … **(i)**

*x* = (81 – 4)/77

*x* = 77/11

*x* = 7

Hence our fraction is 7/9.

(vi) Five years hence, the age of Jacob will be three times that of his son. Five years ago, Jacob’s age was seven times that of his son. What are their present ages?

**Solution:**

Let present age of Jacob = *x* year

And present Age of his son is = *y* year

Five years hence,

Age of Jacob will = *x* + 5 year

Age of his son will = *y* + 5year

Given that the age of Jacob will be three times that of his son

*x* + 5 = 3(*y *+ 5)

Adding 5 both side, we get

*x* = 3*y* + 15 – 5

*x* = 3*y* + 10 … **(i)**

Five years ago,

Age of Jacob will = *x* – 5 year

Age of his son will = *y* – 5 year

Jacob’s age was seven times that of his son

*x* – 5 = 7(*y* -5)

Putting the value of *x* from equation **(i)** we get

3*y *+ 10 – 5 = 7*y* – 35

3*y* + 5 = 7*y* – 35

3*y* – 7*y* = -35 – 5

-4y = – 40

*y* = – 40/- 4

*y* = 10 year

Putting the value of *y* in equation first we get

*x* = 3 × 10 + 10

*x* = 40 years

Hence, Present age of Jacob = 40 years and present age of his son = 10 years.

(iv)*x*/2 + 2*y*/3 = – 1 and*x*–*y*/3 = 3

**Solution:**

(i) *x* + *y* =5 and 2*x* –3*y* = 4

__By elimination method__

*x* + *y* =5 … **(i)**

2*x* –3*y* = 4 … **(ii)**

Multiplying equation **(i)** by **(ii)**, we get

2*x* + 2*y* = 10 … **(iii)**

2*x* –3*y* = 4 … **(ii)**

Subtracting equation **(ii)** from equation **(iii)**, we get

5*y* = 6

*y* = 6/5

Putting the value in equation **(i)**, we get

*x* = 5 – (6/5) = 19/5

Hence, *x* = 19/5 and *y* = 6/5

__By substitution method__*x* + *y* = 5 … **(i)**

Subtracting *y* both side, we get

*x* = 5 – *y* … **(iv)**

Putting the value of *x* in equation **(ii)** we get

2(5 – *y*) – 3*y* = 4

-5*y* = – 6

*y* = -6/-5 = 6/5

Putting the value of *y* in equation **(iv)** we get

*x* = 5 – 6/5

*x* = 19/5

Hence, *x* = 19/5 and *y* = 6/5 again

Dividing both side by 7, we get

*x* = 14/7 = 2

Putting in equation **(i)**, we get

3*x* + 4*y* = 10

3(2) + 4*y* = 10

6 + 4*y* = 10

4*y* = 10 – 6

4*y* = 4

*y* = 4/4 = 1

Hence, answer is *x* = 2, *y* = 1

__By substitution method__

3*x* + 4*y* = 10 … **(i)**

Subtract 3*x* both side, we get

4*y* = 10 – 3*x*

Divide by 4 we get

*y* = (10 – 3*x* )/4

Putting this value in equation **(ii)**, we get

2*x* – 2*y* = 2 … **(i)**

2*x* – 2(10 – 3*x* )/4) = 2

Multiply by 4 we get

8*x* – 2(10 – 3*x*) = 8

8*x* – 20 + 6*x* = 8

14*x* = 28

*x* = 28/14 = 2

*y *= (10 – 3*x*)/4

*y *= 4/4 = 1

Hence, answer is *x* = 2, *y* = 1 again.

(iii) 3*x* – 5*y* – 4 = 0 and 9*x* = 2*y* + 7

__By elimination method__

3*x* – 5*y* – 4 = 0

3*x* – 5*y* = 4 …**(i)**

9*x* = 2*y* + 7

9*x* – 2*y *= 7 … **(ii)**

Multiplying equation **(i)** by 3, we get

9 x – 15 y = 11 … **(iii)**

9x – 2y = 7 … **(ii)**

Subtracting equation **(ii)** from equation **(iii)**, we get

-13*y* = 5

*y* = -5/13

Putting value in equation **(i)**, we get

3x – 5y = 4 … **(i)**

3x – 5(-5/13) = 4

Multiplying by 13 we get

39*x* + 25 = 52

39*x* = 27

*x* =27/39 = 9/13

Hence our answer is *x* = 9/13 and *y* = – 5/13

Putting this value in equation **(ii)** we get

9*x* – 2*y* = 7 … **(ii)**

9 ((4 + 5*y *)/3) – 2*y* = 7

Solve it we get

Subtracting equation **(ii)** from equation **(iii)**, we get

5*y*/3 = -5

Dividing by 5 and multiplying by 3, we get

*y *= -15/5

*y *= – 3

Putting this value in equation **(ii)**, we get

**Solution:**

(i) Let the fraction be *x*/*y*

According to the question,*x* + 1/*y* – 1 = 1

⇒ *x *– *y *= -2 … **(i)***x*/*y*+1 = 1/2

3 – *y* = -2

–*y* = -5

*y* = 5

Hence, the fraction is 3/5

(ii) Let present age of Nuri = *x*

and present age of Sonu = *y*

According to the given information,question,(*x* – 5) = 3(*y* – 5)

*x* – 3*y* = -10 … **(i)**

*x* – 2*y* = 10 … **(ii)**

Subtracting equation **(i)** from equation **(ii)**, we get

*y* = 20 … **(iii)**

Putting this value in equation **(i)**, we get

*x *= 50

Hence, age of Nuri = 50 years and age of Sonu = 20 years.

(iii) Let the unit digit and tens digits of the number be *x *and *y*respectively.

Then, number = 10*y* + *x*

Number after reversing the digits = 10*x* + *y*

Adding equation **(i)** and **(ii)**, we get

9*y* = 9

*y* = 1 … **(iii)**

According to the question,

*x *+ 4*y* = 27 … **(i)**

*x *+ 2*y* = 21 …** (ii)**

Subtracting equation **(ii)** from equation **(i)**, we get

2*y* = 6

*y* = 3 … **(iii)**

Putting in equation **(i)**, we get

*x* + 12 =27

*x* = 15

Hence, fixed charge = Rs 15 and Charge per day = Rs 3.

**Solution:**

(i) *x* – 3*y* – 3 = 0

3*x* – 9*y* – 2 =0

*a**₁*/*a**₂*= 1/3

*b**₁*/*b**₂*= -3/-9 = 1/3 and

*C**₁*/*C**₂* = -3/-2 = 3/2

*a**₁*/a₂= *b**₁*/*b**₂*≠_{ }*C**₁*/*C**₂*

_{ }Therefore, the given sets of lines are parallel to each other. Therefore, they will not intersect each other and thus, there will not be any solution for these equations.

(ii) 2*x* + *y* = 5

3*x* +2*y* = 8

*a**₁*/*a**₂*= 2/3

*b**₁*/*b**₂*= 1/2 and

*C**₁*/*C**₂* = -5/-8 = 5/8

*a**₁*/a₂≠_{ }*b**₁*/*b*_{2}

_{ }Therefore, they will intersect each other at a unique point and thus, there will be a unique solution for these equations.

By cross-multiplication method,

*x*/*b**₁**C**₂*–*b*_{2}*C**₁*_{ }=_{ }*y*/*C**₁**a*_{2}–*C**₂**a**₁*_{ }= 1/*a**₁**b*_{2}–*a*_{2}*b**₁*

*x*/-8-(-10) = *y*/-15+16 = 1/4-3

*x*/2 = *y*/1 = 1

*x*/2 = 1, *y*/1 = 1

∴ *x *= 2, *y *= 1.

(iii) 3*x* – 5*y* = 20

6*x* – 10*y* = 40

*a**₁*/*a**₂*= 3/6 = 1/2

*b**₁*/*b**₂*= -5/-10 = 1/2 and

*C**₁*/*C**₂* = -20/-40 = 1/2

*a**₁*/a₂=_{ }*b**₁*/*b**₂*=_{ }*C**₁*/*C**₂*

3*x* – 3*y* – 15= 0

*a**₁*/*a**₂*= 1/3

*b**₁*/*b**₂*= -3/-3 = 1 and

*C**₁*/*C**₂* = -7/-15 = 7/15

*a**₁*/a₂≠_{ }*b**₁*/*b*_{2}

_{ }Therefore, they will intersect each other at a unique point and thus, there will be a unique solution for these equations.

By cross-multiplication,

*x*/45-(21) = y/-21-(-15) = 1/-3-(-9)

*x*/24 = *y*/-6 = 1/6

*x*/24 = 1/6 and *y*/-6 = 1/6

*x *= 4 and *y *= -1

∴ *x *= 4, *y *= -1.

(*a* – *b*)*x* + (*a* + *b*)*y* – (3*a* +*b* –2) = 0

*a**₁*/*a**₂*= 2/*a*–*b* = 1/2

*b**₁*/*b**₂*= -7/*a*+*b* and

*C**₁*/*C**₂* = -7/-(3*a*+*b*-2) = 7/(3*a*+*b*-2)

For infinitely many solutions,*a**₁*/*a**₂*= *b**₁*/*b**₂*_{= }*C**₁*/*C**₂*

_{ }2/*a*–*b *= 7/3*a*+*b*-26*a* + 2*b* – 4 = 7*a* – 7*b*

*a* – 9*b* = -4 … **(i)**

2/*a*–*b *= 3/*a*+*b*

2*a* + 2*b* = 3*a* – 3*b*

*a* – 5*b* = 0 … **(ii)**

Subtracting equation **(i)** from **(ii)**, we get

4*b* = 4

*b* = 1

Putting this value in equation **(ii)**, we get

32 – 16*y* +15*y* = 27

–*y* = -5

*y* = 5 … **(iv)**

Putting this value in equation **(ii)**, we get

3*x* + 10 = 4

*x* = -2

Hence, *x* = -2, *y *= 5

By cross multiplication again, we get

8*x* + 5*y* -9 = 0

3x + 2y – 4 = 0

*x*/-20-(-18) = *y*/-27-(-32) = 1/16-15

*x*/-2 = *y*/5 = 1/1

*x*/-2 = 1 and *y*/5 = 1

*x* = -2 and *y* = 5

**Form the pair of linear equations in the following problems and find their solutions (if they exist) by any algebraic method:**

(i) A part of monthly hostel charges is fixed and the remaining depends on the number of days one has taken food in the mess. When a student A takes food for 20 days she has to pay Rs 1000 as hostel charges whereas a student B, who takes food for 26 days, pays Rs 1180 as hostel charges. Find the fixed charges and the cost of food per day.

**Solution:**Let *x *be the fixed charge of the food and *y *be the charge for food per day.

According to the question,

*x* + 20*y* = 1000 … **(i)**

x + 26*y* = 1180 … **(ii)**

Subtracting equation **(i)** from equation **(ii)**, we get

6*y* = 180

*y* = 180/6 = 30

Putting this value in equation **(i)**, we get

*x* + 20 × 30 = 1000

*x* = 1000 – 600

*x* = 400

Hence, fixed charge = Rs 400 and charge per day = Rs 30

(ii) A fraction becomes 1/3 when 1 is subtracted from the numerator and it becomes 1/4 when 8 is added to its denominator. Find the fraction.

**Solution:**

Let the fraction be *x*/*y*

According to the question,

*x*-1/*y* = 1/3

⇒ 3*x* – *y* = 3… **(i)**

*x*/*y*+8 = 1/4

⇒ 4*x* – *y* = 8 … **(ii)**

Subtracting equation **(i)** from equation** (ii)**, we get

*x* = 5 … **(iii)**

Putting this value in equation **(i)**, we get

15 – *y *= 3

*y *= 12

Hence, the fraction is 5/12.

(iii) Yash scored 40 marks in a test, getting 3 marks for each right answer and losing 1 mark for each wrong answer. Had 4 marks been awarded for each correct answer and 2 marks been deducted for each incorrect answer, then Yash would have scored 50 marks. How many questions were there in the test?

**Solution: **Let the number of right answers and wrong answers be *x *and *y *respectively.

According to the question,

*x*–

*y*= 40 …

**(i)**

*x*– 2

*y*= 50

*x*–

*y*= 25 …

**(ii)**

Subtracting equation **(ii)** from equation **(i)**, we get

*x *= 15 … **(iii)**

Putting this value in equation **(ii)**, we get

*y*= 25

*y*= 5

And number of wrong answers = 5

Total number of questions = 20

(iv) Places A and B are 100 km apart on a highway. One car starts from A and another from B at the same time. If the cars travel in the same direction at different speeds, they meet in 5 hours. If they travel towards each other, they meet in 1 hour. What are the speeds of the two cars?**Solution:**

Let the speed of 1st car and 2nd car be u km/h and v km/h.

Respective speed of both cars while they are travelling in same direction = (*u –* *v*) km/h

Respective speed of both cars while they are travelling in opposite directions i.e., travelling towards each other = (*u *+ *v*) km/h

*u*–

*v*) = 100

*u*–

*v*= 20 …

**(i)**

*u*+

*v*) = 100 …

**(ii)**

Adding both the equations, we get

*u*= 120

*u*= 60 km/h …

**(iii)**

Putting this value in equation **(ii)**, we obtain

*v* = 40 km/h

Hence, speed of one car = 60 km/h and speed of other car = 40 km/h

(v) The area of a rectangle gets reduced by 9 square units, if its length is reduced by 5 units and breadth is increased by 3 units. If we increase the length by 3 units and the breadth by 2 units, the area increases by 67 square units. Find the dimensions of the rectangle.

**Solution:**

Let length and breadth of rectangle be *x *unit and *y* unit respectively.

Area = *xy*

According to the question,

(*x* – 5) (*y* + 3) = *xy* – 9

⇒ 3*x* – 5*y* – 6 = 0 … **(i)**

(*x* + 3) (*y* + 2) = *xy* + 67

⇒ 2*x* – 3*y* – 61 = 0 … **(ii)**

By cross multiplication, we get

*x*/305-(-18) = *y*/-12-(-183) = 1/9-(-10)

*x*/323 = *y*/171 = 1/19

*x *= 17, *y* = 9

Hence, the length of the rectangle = 17 units and breadth of the rectangle = 9 units.

**Exercise 3.6**

**1. Solve the following pairs of equations by reducing them to a pair of linear equations:**

(i) 1/2*x* + 1/3*y* = 2

1/3*x* + 1/2*y *= 13/6

(ii) 2/√*x* +3/√*y* = 2

4/√*x* – 9/√y = -1

(iii) 4/*x* + 3*y* = 14

3/*x* – 4*y* = 23

(iv) 5/*x*-1 + 1/*y*-2 = 2

6/*x*-1 – 3/*y*-2 = 1

(v) 7*x*-2*y*/*xy* = 5

8*x* + 7*y*/*xy* = 15

(vi) 6*x* + 3*y* = 6*xy*

2*x* + 4*y* = 5*xy*

(vii) 10/*x*+*y* + 2/*x*–*y* = 4

15/*x*+*y* – 5/*x*–*y* = -2

(viii) 1/3*x*+*y* + 1/3*x*–*y* = 3/4

1/2(3*x*–*y*) – 1/2(3*x*–*y*) = -1/8

**Solution:**

(i) 1/2*x* + 1/3*y* = 2

1/3*x* + 1/2*y *= 13/6

Let 1/*x *= *p* and 1/*y *= *q*, then the equations changes as below:

*p*/2 + *q*/3 = 2

⇒ 3*p* + 2*q* -12 = 0 … **(i)**

*p*/3 + *q*/2 = 13/6

⇒ 2*p* + 3*q* -13 = 0 … **(ii)**

By cross-multiplication method, we get

*p*/-26-(-36) = *q*/-24-(-39) = 1/9-4

*p*/10 = *q*/15 = 1/5

*p*/10 = 1/5 and *q*/15 = 1/5

*p *= 2 and *q *= 3

1/*x *= 2 and 1/*y *= 3

Hence, *x *= 1/2 and *y *= 1/3

(ii) 2/√*x* +3/√*y* = 2

4/√*x* – 9/√y = -1

Let 1/√*x *= *p* and 1/√*y* = *q*, then the equations changes as below:

2p + 3q = 2 … **(i)**

4p – 9q = -1 … **(ii)**

Multiplying equation **(i)** by 3, we get

6p + 9q = 6 … **(iii)**

Adding equation **(ii)** and **(iii)**, we get

**(iv)**

**(i)**, we get

3q = 1

q = 1/3

*p*= 1/√

*x*= 1/2

√

*x*= 2

*x*= 4

and

*q*= 1/√

*y*= 1/3

√

*y*= 3

*y*= 9

Hence,

*x*= 4,

*y*= 9

(iii) 4/*x* + 3*y* = 14

3/*x* – 4*y* = 23

Putting 1/*x* = *p* in the given equations, we get

4*p* + 3*y* = 14

⇒ 4*p* + 3y – 14 = 0

3*p* – 4*y* = 23

⇒ 3*p* – 4*y* -23 = 0

By cross-multiplication, we get

*p*/-69-56 = *y*/-42-(-92) = 1/-16-9

⇒ –*p*/125 = *y*/50 = -1/25

Now,

–*p*/125 = -1/25 and *y*/50 = -1/25

⇒ *p* = 5 and *y* = -2

Also, *p* = 1/*x* = 5

⇒ *x* = 1/5

So, *x* = 1/5 and *y* = -2 is the solution.

(iv) 5/*x*-1 + 1/*y*-2 = 2

6/*x*-1 – 3/*y*-2 = 1

Putting 1/*x*-1 = *p* and 1/*y*-2 = *q* in the given equations, we obtain

5*p* + *q* = 2 … **(i)**

6*p* – 3*q* = 1 … **(ii)**

Now, by multiplying equation **(i)** by 3 we get

15*p* + 3*q* = 6 … **(iii)**

Now, adding equation **(ii)** and **(iii)**

21*p* = 7

⇒ *p* = 1/3

Putting this value in equation **(ii)** we get,

6×1/3 – 3*q* =1

⇒ 2-3*q* = 1

⇒ -3*q* = 1-2

⇒ -3*q* = -1

⇒ *q* = 1/3

Now,

*p* = 1/*x*-1 = 1/3

⇒1/*x*-1 = 1/3

⇒ 3 = *x *– 1

⇒ *x* = 4

Also,

*q* = 1/*y*-2 = 1/3

⇒ 1/*y*-2 = 1/3

⇒ 3 = *y*-2

⇒ *y* = 5

Hence, *x* = 4 and *y* = 5 is the solution.

(v) 7*x*-2*y*/*xy* = 5

⇒ 7*x*/*xy* – 2*y*/*xy* = 5

⇒ 7/*y* – 2/*x* = 5 … **(i)**

8*x*+7*y*/*xy* = 15

⇒ 8*x*/*xy* + 7*y*/*xy* = 15

⇒ 8/*y* + 7/*x* = 15 … **(ii)**

Putting 1/*x* = *p* and 1/*y* = *q* in **(i)** and **(ii)** we get,

7*q* – 2*p* = 5 … **(iii)**

8*q* + 7*p* = 15 … **(iv)**

Multiplying equation **(iii)** by 7 and multiplying equation **(iv)** by 2 we get,

49*q* – 14*p* = 35 … **(v)**

16*q* + 14*p* = 30 … **(vi)**

Now, adding equation **(v)** and **(vi)** we get,

49*q* – 14*p* + 16*q* + 14*p* = 35 + 30

⇒ 65*q* = 65

⇒ *q* = 1

Putting the value of q in equation **(iv)**

8 + 7*p* = 15

⇒ 7*p* = 7

⇒ *p* = 1

Now,

*p* = 1/*x* = 1

⇒ 1/*x* = 1

⇒ *x* = 1

also, *q* = 1 = 1/*y*

⇒ 1/*y* = 1

⇒ *y *= 1

Hence, *x *=1 and *y* = 1 is the solution.

(vi) 6*x* + 3*y* = 6*xy*

⇒ 6*x*/*xy *+ 3*y*/*xy* = 6

⇒ 6/y + 3/*x* = 6 … **(i)**

2*x* + 4y = 5*xy*

⇒ 2*x*/*xy* + 4y/*xy* = 5

⇒ 2/*y* + 4/*x* = 5 … **(ii)**

Putting 1/*x* = p and 1/*y* = *q* in **(i)** and **(ii)** we get,

6q + 3p – 6 = 0

2q + 4p – 5 = 0

By cross multiplication method, we get

*p*/-30-(-12) = q/-24-(-15) = 1/6-24

*p*/-18 = *q*/-9 = 1/-18

*p*/-18 = 1/-18 and q/-9 = 1/-18

*p *= 1 and q = 1/2

*p *= 1/x = 1 and q = 1/y = 1/2

*x *= 1, y = 2

Hence, *x *= 1 and *y *= 2

(vii) 10/*x*+*y* + 2/*x*–*y* = 4

15/*x*+*y* – 5/*x*–*y* = -2

Putting 1/*x*+*y* = *p* and 1/*x*–*y* = q in the given equations, we get:

10*p* + 2*q* = 4

⇒ 10*p* + 2*q* – 4 = 0 … **(i)**

15*p* – 5*q* = -2

⇒ 15*p* – 5*q* + 2 = 0 … **(ii)**

Using cross multiplication, we get

*p*/4-20 = *q*/-60-(-20) = 1/-50-30

*p*/-16 = *q*/-80 = 1/-80

*p*/-16 = 1/-80 and *q*/-80 = 1/-80

*p* = 1/5 and *q* = 1

*p* = 1/*x*+*y* = 1/5 and *q* = 1/*x*–*y* = 1

*x* + *y* = 5 … **(iii)**

and *x* – *y* = 1 … **(iv)**

Adding equation **(iii)** and **(iv)**, we get

2*x* = 6

*x* = 3 …. **(v)**

Putting value of *x* in equation **(iii)**, we get

*y* = 2

Hence, *x* = 3 and *y* = 2

(viii) 1/3*x*+*y* + 1/3*x*–*y* = 3/4

1/2(3*x*–*y*) – 1/2(3*x*–*y*) = -1/8

Putting 1/3*x*+*y* = *p* and 1/3*x*–*y* = *q* in the given equations, we get

*p* + *q* = 3/4 … **(i)**

*p*/2 – *q*/2 = -1/8

*p *– *q *= -1/4 … **(ii)**

Adding **(i)** and **(ii)**, we get

2*p* = 3/4 – 1/4

2*p* = 1/2

*p *= 1/4

Putting the value in equation **(ii)**, we get

1/4 – *q* = -1/4

*q* = 1/4 + 1/4 = 1/2

*p* = 1/3*x*+*y* = 1/4

3*x* + *y* = 4 … **(iii)**

*q* = 1/3*x*–*y* = 1/2

3*x* – *y* = 2 … **(iv)**

Adding equations **(iii)** and **(iv)**, we get

6*x* = 6

*x* = 1 … **(v)**

Putting the value in equation **(iii)**, we get

3(1) + *y* = 4

*y* = 1

Hence, *x* = 1 and *y* = 1

**2. Formulate the following problems as a pair of equations, and hence find their solutions:**

(i) Ritu can row downstream 20 km in 2 hours, and upstream 4 km in 2 hours. Find her speed of rowing in still water and the speed of the current.

**Solution:**

Let the speed of Ritu in still water and the speed of stream be* x*km/h

and *y* km/h respectively.

Speed of Ritu while rowing

Upstream = (*x* – *y*) km/h

*x*+

*y*) km/h

According to question,

*x*+

*y*) = 20

*x*+

*y*= 10 …

**(i)**

2(

*x*–

*y*) = 4

⇒

*x*–

*y*= 2 …

**(ii)**

Adding equation

**(i)**and

**(ii)**, we get

**(i)**, we get

*y*= 4

Hence, Ritu’s speed in still water is 6 km/h and the speed of the current is 4 km/h.

(ii) 2 women and 5 men can together finish an embroidery work in 4 days, while 3 women and 6 men can finish it in 3 days. Find the time taken by 1 woman alone to finish the work, and also that taken by 1 man alone.

**Solution:**

Let the number of days taken by a woman and a man be *x* and *y*respectively.

Therefore, work done by a woman in 1 day = 1/*x*

*x*+ 5/

*y*) = 1

*x*+ 5/

*y*= 1/4

*x*+ 6/

*y*) = 1

*x*+ 6/

*y*= 1/3

*x*=

*p*and 1/

*y*=

*q*in these equations, we get

*p*+ 5

*q*= 1/4

*p*/-20-(-18) =

*q*/-9-(-18) = 1/144-180

*p*/-2 =

*q*/-1 = 1/-36

*p*/-2 = -1/36 and

*q*/-1 = 1/-36

*p*= 1/18 and q = 1/36

*p*= 1/

*x*= 1/18 and

*q*= 1/y = 1/36

*x*= 18 and

*y*= 36

(iii) Roohi travels 300 km to her home partly by train and partly by bus. She takes 4 hours if she travels 60 km by train and remaining by bus. If she travels 100 km by train and the remaining by bus, she takes 10 minutes longer. Find the speed of the train and the bus separately.**Answer**

Let the speed of train and bus be u km/h and v km/h respectively.

According to the given information,

60/*u* + 240/*v *= 4 … **(i)**

100/*u* + 200/*v *= 25/6 … **(ii)**

Putting 1/*u* = *p* and 1/*v* = *q* in the equations, we get

60*p* + 240*q* = 4 … **(iii)**

100*p* + 200*q* = 25/6

600*p* + 1200*q* = 25 … **(iv)**

Multiplying equation **(iii)** by 10, we get

600*p* + 2400*q* = 40 …. **(v)**

Subtracting equation **(iv)** from **(v)**, we get1200*q* = 15

*q* = 15/200 = 1/80 … **(vi)**

Putting equation **(iii)**, we get

60*p* + 3 = 4

60*p* = 1

*p* = 1/60

*p* = 1/*u* = 1/60 and *q* = 1/*v* = 1/80

*u* = 60 and *v* = 80

Hence, speed of train = 60 km/h and speed of bus = 80 km/h.
