###### Exercise 3.1
Question 1.

Sudha went to market with her friends. They wanted to eat gol - gappa' as well as `dahi - bhalla'. The number of plates of gol - gappa taken by them is half that of dahi - bhalla. The cost of one plate of gol - gappa was Rs. 10 and cost of one plate of dahi - bhalla was Rs. 5. She spent Rs. 60. Represent the situation algebraically and graphically.

Let no. of plates of gol - gappa = x

and no. of plates of dhai - bhalla = y

Cost of 1 plate gol - gappa = Rs. 10

Cost of 1 plate dhai - bhalla = Rs. 5

Total money spent = Rs. 20

According to the question,

…(1)

10x + 5y = 60 …(2)

From eqn (1), we get

2x – y = 0 …(3)

Now, table for 2x – y = 0

Now, table for 10x + 5y = 60

On plotting points on a graph paper and join them to get a straight line representing .

Similarly, on plotting the points on the same graph paper and join them to get a straight line representing 10x + 5y = 60.

Here, the lines representing Eq. (1) and Eq. (2) intersecting at point A i.e. (3,6).

Question 2.

Romila went to a stationary shop and purchased 2 pencils and 3 erasers for Rs. 9. Her friend Sonali saw the new variety of pencils and erasers with Romila and she also bought 4 pencils and 6 erasers of the same kind for Rs. 18. Represent this situation algebraically and graphically.

Let the cost of one pencil = Rs x

and cost of one eraser = Rs y

Romila spent = Rs. 9

Sonali spent = Rs. 18

According to the question

2x + 3y = 9 …(1)

4x + 6y = 18 …(2)

Now, table for 2x + 3y = 9

Now, table for 4x + 6y = 18

On plotting points on a graph paper and join them to get a straight line representing 2x + 3y = 9.

Similarly, on plotting the points on the same graph paper and join them to get a straight line representing 4x + 6y = 18.

Here, we can see that both the lines coincide. This is so, because, both the equations are equivalent, i.e.2(2x + 3y) = 2×9 equation (2) is derived from the other.

Question 3.

Present age of father is 30 years more than twice that of his son. After 10 years, the age of father will be thrice the age of his son. Represent this situation algebraically and geometrically.

Let the present age of son = x year

and the age of his father = y year

According to the question

y = 2x + 30

or, 2x – y = – 30 …(1)

After 10 years,

Age of son = (x + 10)year

Age of father = (y + 10)year

So, According to the question

y + 10 = 3(x + 10)

y + 10 = 3x + 30

y = 3x + 20

or, 3x – y = – 20 …(2)

Now, table for y = 2x + 30

Now, table for y = 3x + 20

On plotting points on a graph paper and join them to get a straight line representing y = 2x + 30.

Similarly, on plotting the points on the same graph paper and join them to get a straight line representing y = 3x + 20.

Here, the lines representing Eq. (1) and Eq. (2) intersecting at point A i.e. (10,50).

So, the age of son is 10years and age of his father is 50years.

Question 4.

The path of a wheel of train A is given by the equation x + 2y — 4 = 0 and the path of a wheel of another train B is given by the equation 2x + 4y — 12 = O. Represent this situation geometrically.

The given equation is

x + 2y – 4 = 0

and

2x + 4y – 12 = 0

Now, let us find atleast two solutions of each of the above equations, as shown in the following tables.

Table for x + 2y – 4 = 0

Now, table for 2x + 4y – 12 = 0

From the graph, it is clear that lines represented by the equations x + 2y – 4 = 0 and 2x + 4y – 12 = 0 are parallel.

Question 5.

The path of highway number 1 and 2 are given by the equations x — y = 1 and 2x + 3y = 12 respectively. Represent these equations geometrically.

The given equation is

x – y = 1

and

2x + 3y = 12

Now, let us find atleast two solutions of each of the above equations, as shown in the following tables.

Table for x – y = 1 or y = x – 1

Now, table for 2x + 3y = 12

From the graph, it is clear that lines represented by the equations x – y = 1 and 2x + 3y – 12 = 0 are intersecting at a point A i.e. (3,2)

Question 6.

Person A walks along the path joining points (0, 3) and (1, 3) and person B walks along the path joining points (0, 4) and (1, 5). Represent this situation geometrically.

The given points are at which Person A walks (0,3) and (1,3)

and the points at which person B walks (0,4) and (1,5)

Now, we plot these points on a same graph as shown in the following figure.

Question 7.

(v) x = 1, y = — 2 (vi) x = — 4, y = 2

Given equation is

i) Justification

On substituting x = 0, y = 8 in LHS of given equation, we get

LHS = 4(0) – 3(8) + 24 = 0 – 24 + 24 = 0 = RHS

Hence, x = 0, y = 8 is a solution of the equation 4x – 3y + 24 = 0

ii) Justification

On substituting x = – 6, y = 0 in LHS of given equation, we get

LHS = 4( – 6) – 3(0) + 24 = – 24 + 24 = 0 = RHS

Hence, x = – 6, y = 0 is a solution of the equation 4x – 3y + 24 = 0

iii) Justification

On substituting x = 1, y = – 2 in LHS of given equation, we get

LHS = 4(1) – 3( – 2) + 24 = 4 + 6 + 24 = 34 ≠ RHS

Hence, x = 1, y = – 2 is not a solution of the equation 4x – 3y + 24 = 0

iv) Justification

On substituting x = – 3, y = 4 in LHS of given equation, we get

LHS = 4( – 3) – 3(4) + 24 = – 12 – 12 + 24 = 0 = RHS

Hence, x = – 3, y = 4 is a solution of the equation 4x – 3y + 24 = 0

v) Justification

On substituting x = 1, y = – 2 in LHS of given equation, we get

LHS = 4(1) – 3( – 2) + 24 = 4 + 6 + 24 = 34 ≠ RHS

Hence, x = 1, y = – 2 is not a solution of the equation 4x – 3y + 24 = 0

vi) Justification

On substituting x = – 4, y = 2 in LHS of given equation, we get

LHS = 4( – 4) – 3(2) + 24 = – 16 – 6 + 24 = – 22 + 24 = 2 ≠ RHS

Hence, x = – 4, y = 2 is not a solution of the equation 4x – 3y + 24 = 0

So, x = – 6, y = 0 is a solution of the equation 5x – 3y + 30 = 0.

Hence, point A lies on the graph of the linear equation 5x – 3y + 30 = 0.

(ii) Given B (0,10). Here x = 0 and y = 10

On substituting x = 0, y = 10 in LHS of given equation, we get

So, x = 0, y = 10 is a solution of the equation 5x – 3y + 30 = 0

Hence, point B lies on the graph of the linear equation 5x – 3y + 30 = 0.

(iii) Given C (3, – 5). Here x = 3 and y = – 5

On substituting x = 3, y = – 5 in LHS of given equation, we get

LHS = 5(3) – 3( – 5) + 30 = 15 + 15 + 30 = 60 ≠ RHS

So, x = 3, y = – 5 is not a solution of the equation 5x – 3y + 30 = 0

Hence, point C does not lie on the graph of the linear equation 5x – 3y + 30 = 0.

(iv) Given D (4,2). Here x = 4 and y = 2

On substituting x = 4, y = 2 in LHS of given equation, we get

So, x = 4, y = 2 is not a solution of the equation 5x – 3y + 30 = 0

Hence, point D does not lie on the graph of the linear equation 5x – 3y + 30 = 0.

(v) Given E ( – 9,5). Here x = – 9 and y = 5

On substituting x = – 9, y = 5 in LHS of given equation, we get

LHS = 5( – 9) – 3(5) + 30 = – 45 – 15 + 30 = – 30 ≠ RHS

So, x = – 9, y = 5 is not a solution of the equation 5x – 3y + 30 = 0

Hence, point E does not lie on the graph of the linear equation 5x – 3y + 30 = 0.

(vi) Given F ( – 3,5). Here x = – 3 and y = 5

On substituting x = – 3, y = 5 in LHS of given equation, we get

LHS = 5( – 3) – 3(5) + 30 = – 15 + 15 + 30 = 0 = RHS

So, x = – 3, y = 5 is a solution of the equation 5x – 3y + 30 = 0

Hence, point F lies on the graph of the linear equation 5x – 3y + 30 = 0.

(vii) Given G ( – 9, – 5). Here x = 3 and y = – 5

On substituting x = – 9, y = – 5 in LHS of given equation, we get

LHS = 5( – 9) – 3( – 5) + 30 = – 45 + 15 + 30 = 0 = RHS

So, x = – 9, y = – 5 is a solution of the equation 5x – 3y + 30 = 0

Hence, point G lies on the graph of the linear equation 5x – 3y + 30 = 0.

Or Graphically

3x + y — 11 = 0

x — y — 1 = 0

The given pair of linear equations is

3x + y – 11 = 0

and x – y – 1 = 0

On comparing the given equations with standard form of pair of linear equations i.e. a1 x + b1y + c1 = 0 and a2 x + b2y + c2 = 0, we get

a1 = 3, b1 = 1 and c1 = – 11

Question 20.

Find the values of a and b for which the following system of linear equations has infinitely many solutions:

2x + 3y = 7, (a + b) x + (2a – b) y = 3(a + b + 1)

Given, pair of equations

2x + 3y = 7

and (a + b)x + (2a – b)y = 3(a + b + 1)

On comparing the given equation with standard form i.e. a1 x + b1y + c1 = 0 and a2 x + b2y + c2 = 0, we get

a1 = 2, b1 = 3 and c1 = – 7

and a2 = (a + b), b2 = (2a – b) and c2 = – (a + b + 1)

For infinitely many solutions,

Here,

On taking I and II terms, we get

⇒ 2(2a – b) = 3(a + b)

⇒ 4a – 2b = 3a + 3b

⇒ 4a – 3a – 3b – 2b = 0

⇒ a – 5b = 0 …(1)

On taking I and III terms, we get

⇒ 6(a + b + 1) = 7(a + b)

⇒ 6a + 6b + 6 = 7a + 7b

⇒ 6a – 7a + 6b – 7b = – 6

⇒ – a – b = – 6

⇒ a + b = 6 …(2)

Solving eqn (1) and (2), we get

⇒ b = 1

Now, substituting the value of b in eqn (2), we get

⇒ a + b = 6

⇒ a + 1 = 6

⇒ a = 5
