Question 10.

Solve the following simultaneous equation graphically.

3x – y – 2 = 0; 2x + y = 8

For equation 1, let's find the points for graph

3x - y - 2 = 0
At x = 0
3(0) - y - 2 = 0
⇒ y = -2

At x = 1
3(1) - y - 2 = 0
⇒ y = 1

At x = 2
3(2) - y - 2 = 0
⇒ 6 - y - 2 = 0
⇒ y =4

Hence, points for graph are (0, -1) (1, 1) and (2, 4)

For equation 2
2x+ y = 8

at x = 0
y =8

at x = 1
2(1) + y = 8
⇒ y = 6

at x =4
2(4) + y = 8
⇒ y = 0

Hence, points for graph are (0, 8) (1, 6) and (4, 0)

From graph, we observe both lines intersect at (2, 4)
hence, x =2 y = 4 is the solution of given pair

∴ (x , y) =

Question 17.

Solve the following equations by Cramer’s method.

Let,

⇒ 3x + 3y – 24 = 2x + 4y – 28

⇒ x – y = –4 …(1)

Also,

Let

⇒ 4x + 8y – 56 = 9x – 3y

⇒ 5x –11y = – 56 …(2)

Hence the two equations are:

x – y = –4 …(1)

5x – 11y = – 56 …(2)

Now,

⇒ D = (–11 -(- 5)) = -6

Also,

Dx = 44 - 56 = -12

And,

A two digit number and the number with digits interchanged add up to 143. In the given number the digit in unit’s place is 3 more than the digit in the ten’s place. Find the original number.

Let the digit in unit’s place is x

and that in the ten’s place is y

The number obtained by interchanging the digits is

According to first condition two digit number + the number obtained by interchanging the digits = 143

From the second condition,

digit in unit’s place = digit in the ten’s place + 3

Putting this value of x in equation (I)

x + y = 13

The original number is 10

Let the digit in unit’s place is x

and that in the ten’s place is y

∴ the number = 10y+ x

The number obtained by interchanging the digits is

According to first condition two digit number + the number obtained by interchanging the digits = 143

∴

∴

∴

From the second condition,

digit in unit’s place = digit in the ten’s place + 3

∴

∴  ….. (II)

Putting this value of x in equation (I)

x + y = 13

∴

The original number is 10

⇒ 50+8

⇒ 58

Question 24.

Kantabai bought  kg tea and 5 kg sugar from a shop. She paid Rs 50 as return fare for rickshaw. Total expense was Rs 700. Then she realised that by ordering online the goods can be bought with free home delivery at the same price. So next month she placed the order online for 2 kg tea and 7 kg sugar. She paid Rs 880 for that. Find the rate of sugar and tea per kg.

Let x be the cost of tea and y be the cost of sugar

As she paid ₹50 as return fare

∴

According to second situation,

Multiplying Eq. I by 2 and Eq. II by 3

…..(III)

Subtracting Eq. III from IV

Sum of the present ages of Manish and Savita is 31. Manish’s age 3 years ago was 4 times the age of Savita. Find their present ages.

Let Manish’s present age be x

Let Savita’s present age be y

According to 1st situation,

According to second situation,

Subtracting Eq. II from I

Substitute y=8 in eq. I

Manisha's age 23 years

Savita's age 8 years.

Question 27.

In a factory the ratio of salary of skilled and unskilled workers is 5 : 3. Total salary of one day of both of them is ₹ 720. Find daily wages of skilled and unskilled workers.

Ratio of skilled and unskilled worker’s salary = 5:3

Let it be 5x and 3x

Total of one day’s salary = ₹720

So,

Skilled worker's wages =  = ₹450.

unskilled worker's wages  = ₹270

Question 28.

Places A and B are 30 km apart and they are on a straight road. Hamid travels from A to B on bike. At the same time Joseph starts from B on bike, travels towards A. They meet each other after 20 minutes. If Joseph would have started from B at the same time but in the opposite direction (instead of towards A) Hamid would have caught him after 3 hours. Find the speed of Hamid and Joseph.

Let the speed of Joseph = x km/h

Let the speed of Hamid be = y km/h

When approaching each other, combined speed =

Time taken to meet =

∴

When moving away from each other, combined speed =

Time taken for Hamid to catch up =

∴

Equating I and II,

Substituting x=50in eq. I
