**Question 6.**

The ratio of ages of Abha and her mother is 2 : 5. At the time of Abha's birth her mother’s age was 27 year. Find the present ages of Abha and her mother.

**Answer:**

Let age of Abha = x years

∴ Age of Abha’s mother at her birth = (x + 27) years

Ratio of Abha’s and her mother’s age = 2:5

Cross multiply and get:

5x = 2(x + 27)

⇒ 5x = 2x + 54

⇒ 5x – 2x = 54

⇒ 3x = 54

⇒ x = 54/3

⇒ x = 18

∴ Age of Abha = 18 years

Age of Abha’s mother = 18 + 27 = 45 years

**Question 7.**

Present ages of Vatsala and Sara are 14 years and 10 years respectively. After how many years the ratio of their ages will become 5:4?

**Answer:**

Given: Present age of Vatsala = 14 years

Present age of Sara = 10 years

Let after x years, the ratio of their ages will be 5:4.

∴ Age of Vatsala after x years = (14 + x) years

Age of Sara after x years = (10 + x) years

Ratio of their ages = 5:4

On cross multiplying, we get:

56 + 4x = 50 + 5x

⇒ 5x – 4x = 56 – 50

⇒ x = 6

∴ After 6 years, their ages will be 20 years and 16 years and ratio

of their ages will be 5:4.

**Question 8.**

The ratio of present ages of Rehana and her mother is 2 : 7. After 2 years, the ratio of their ages will be 1 : 3. What is Rehana's present age?

**Answer:**

Given: Ratio of present age of Rehana and her mother = 2:7

So, let present age of Rehana = 2x

∴ Present age of her mother = 7x

After 2 years, age of Rehana = (2x + 2) years

After 2 years, age of her mother = (7x + 2) years

Now, given that after two years ratio of their ages will be 1:3.

On cross multiplying, we get:

6x + 6 = 7x + 2

⇒ 7x – 6x = 6 – 2

⇒ x = 4

∴ Present age of Rehana = 2x = (2 × 4) years = 8 years

∴ On comparing first two equalities, we get:

9/14 = 4.5/x

Cross multiply and get:

9x = 14 × 4.5

⇒ x = 14 × 0.5 = 7

Now, compare the first and third equalities and get:

9/14 = y/42

Cross multiply and get:

14y = 9 × 42

⇒ y = 9 × 3 = 27

Now, compare the first and fourth equalities and get:

9/14 = z/3.5

Cross multiply and get:

14z = 9 × 3.5

⇒ z = 9 × (3.5/14)

⇒ z = 9 × (0.25)

⇒ z = 2.25

∴

**Question 2.**

Find the following ratios.

(i) The ratio of radius to circumference of the circle.

(ii) The ratio of circumference of circle with radius r to its area.

Circumference of circle = 2πr

Ratio of radius to circumference of circle = r/2πr

= 1/2π

= 1 : 2π

(ii) Let r be the radius of a circle.

Circumference of circle = 2πr

Area of the circle =2πr^{2}

Ratio of radius to circumference of circle = 2πr/πr^{2}

= 2/r

= 2 : r

(iii) Side of square = 7 cm

Diagonal of square = √2 × side = 7√2 cm

Ratio of diagonal of a square to its side = 7/7√2

= 1/√2

= 1 : √2

(iv) Length of rectangle = 5 cm

Breadth of rectangle = 3.5 cm

Perimeter of rectangle = 2(Length + Breadth)

= 2(5+3.5)

= 2(8.5)

**Question 4.**

ABCD is a parallelogram. The ratio of ∠A and ∠B of this parallelogram is 5 : 4. Find the measure of ∠B.

**Answer:**

Given: ∠A : ∠B = 5:4

Let the measure of ∠A = 5x

Then ∠B = 4x

Since the adjacent angles of a parallelogram are complementary, therefore ∠A + ∠B = 180°

⇒ 5x + 4x = 180°

⇒ 9x = 180°

⇒ x = 20°

∴ ∠ A = 5x = 5 × 20° = 100°

∴ ∠ B = 4x = 4 × 20° = 80°

**Question 5.**

The ratio of present ages of Albert and Salim is 5 : 9. Five years hence ratio of their ages will be 3 : 5. Find their present ages.

**Answer:**

Given: Ratio of present age of Albert and Salim=5:9

So, let present age of Albert = 5x years

∴ Present age of Salim = 9x years

Five years later, age of Albert = (5x + 5) years

Five years later, age of Salim = (9x + 5) years

Given that this ratio of their ages is 3:5.

∴ According to the given problem:

⇒ 25x + 25 = 27x + 15

⇒ 27x – 25x = 25 – 15

⇒ 2x = 10

⇒ x = 5

∴ Present age of Albert = 5x = 5 × 5 = 25 years

Present age of Salim = 9x = 9 × 5 = 45 years

**Question 6.**

The ratio of length and breadth of a rectangle is 3 : 1, and its perimeter is 36 cm. Find the length and breadth of the rectangle.

**Answer:**

Let l and b be the length and breadth of rectangle.

Given that Length : Breadth = 3:1

Perimeter of rectangle = 36

Let length of rectangle = l = 3x cm

∴ Breadth of the rectangle = b = x cm

Perimeter of rectangle = 2(l + b) = 36 cm

∴ 2(3x + x) = 36

⇒ 2(4x) = 36

⇒ 8x = 36

⇒ x = 36/8 = 4.5

∴ Breadth of rectangle = x = 4.5 cm

Length of rectangle = 3x = 3 × 4.5 = 13.5 cm

**Question 7.**

The ratio of two numbers is 31 : 23 and their sum is 216. Find these numbers.

**Answer:**

Sum of a and b = a + b = 216

Let the first number ‘a’ = 31x

Then the second number ‘b’ = 23x

Consider a + b = 216

⇒ 31x + 23x = 216

⇒ 54x = 216

⇒ x = 216/54 = 4

∴ The first number ‘a’ = 31x = 31 × 4 = 124

The second number ‘b’ = 23x = 23 × 4 = 92

**Question 8.**

If the product of two numbers is 360 and their ratio is 10 : 9, then find the numbers.

**Answer:**

Let a and b be two numbers.

Given that a:b = 10:9

Product of a and b = ab = 360

Let the first number ‘a’ = 10x

Then the second number ‘b’ = 9x

Consider ab = 360

⇒ 10x × 9x = 360

⇒ 90x^{2} = 360

⇒ x^{2} = 4

⇒ x = 2

If x = 2, then first number ‘a’ = 10x = 10 × 2 = 20

The second number ‘b’ = 9x = 9 × 2 = 18

If x = -2, then first number ‘a’ = 10x = 10 × (-2) = -20

The second number ‘b’ = 9x = 9 × (-2) = -18

###### Practice Set 4.5

**Question 1.**

Which number should be subtracted from 12, 16 and 21 so that resultant numbers are in continued proportion?

**Answer:**

Let x be the number that should be subtracted from 12, 16, 21 so that the numbers remain in continued proportion.

Numbers a, b, c are said to be continued proportion if b^{2} = ac.

∴ From the definition of continued proportion, we get:

⇒ (16 - x)^{2} = (12 - x)(21 - x)

⇒ 256 + x^{2} – 32x = 252 - 33x + x^{2}

⇒-32x + 33x = 252 – 256

⇒ x= -4

∴ -4 should be subtracted from 12, 16, 21 so that the numbers remain in continued proportion.

**Question 2.**

If (28 - x) is the mean proportional of (23 - x) and (19 - x) then find the value of x.

**Answer:**

A number b is said to be mean proportional of two numbers a and c if

b^{2} = ac.

∴ From the definition of mean proportion, we get:

(28 - x)^{2} = (23 - x)(19 - x)

⇒ 784 + x^{2} – 56x = 437 - 42x + x^{2}

⇒-56x + 42x = 437 – 784

⇒ -14x= -347

⇒ x = 347/14

**Question 3.**

Three numbers are in continued proportion, whose mean proportional is 12 and the sum of the remaining two numbers is 26, then find these numbers.

**Answer:**

Let the numbers be x, y, z.

As the numbers are in continued proportion, therefore

y^{2} = xz ……………… (1)

Also, the mean proportion = 12

∴ y = √xz = 12

⇒ xz = 144 …………… (2)

It is given that the sum of remaining two numbers = 26

∴ x + z = 26

⇒ x = 26 – z

Put the value of x in equation (2):

(26 – z)z = 144

⇒ 26z – z^{2} = 144

⇒ z^{2} – 26z + 144 = 0

⇒ z^{2} – 8z – 18z + 144 = 0

⇒ z(z - 8) – 18(z – 8) = 0

⇒ (z - 8)(z - 18) = 0

⇒ z = 8 or z = 18

∴ x = 26 – 8 or x = 26 – 18

⇒ x = 18 or x = 8

y = 12

∴ The numbers in proportion be 8, 12, 18 or 18, 12, 8.

**Question 4.**

If (a + b+ c)(a –b + c) = a^{2} + b^{2} + c^{2} , show that a, b, c are in continued proportion.

**Answer:**

Given: (a + b+ c)(a –b + c) = a^{2} + b^{2} + c^{2}

⇒ a^{2} –ab + ac + ab - b^{2} + bc + ca – bc + c^{2} = a^{2} + b^{2} + c^{2}

⇒ a^{2} –ab + ac + ab - b^{2} + bc + ca – bc + c^{2} - a^{2} - c^{2}= b^{2} + b^{2}

⇒ 2ac = 2b^{2}

⇒ b^{2} = ac

∴ a, b, c are in continued proportion.

**Question 5.**

If and a, b, c >0, then show that,

i. (a + b+ c)(b – c) = ab – c^{2}

ii. (a^{2} + b^{2})(b^{2} + c^{2}) = (ab + bc)^{2}

iii. (a^{2} + b^{2})/ab = (a + c)/b

**Answer:**

(i)

Given: a/b = b/c

⇒ b^{2} = ac

Consider (a + b+ c)(b – c) = ab – ac + b^{2} – bc + cb – c^{2}

= ab – ac + ac – c^{2} (∵ b^{2} = ac)

= ab – c^{2}

(ii)

Given:

a/b = b/c

⇒ b^{2} = ac

Consider (a^{2} + b^{2})(b^{2} + c^{2}) = a^{2}b^{2} + a^{2} c^{2} + b^{2} b^{2} + b^{2}c^{2}

= a^{2}b^{2} + ac(ac)+ b^{2}(ac)+ b^{2}c^{2} (∵ b^{2} = ac)

= a^{2}b^{2} + b^{2}(ac)+ b^{2}(ac)+ b^{2}c^{2} (∵ b^{2} = ac)

= a^{2}b^{2} + 2b^{2}(ac)+ b^{2}c^{2}

= a^{2}b^{2} + 2ab^{2}c+ b^{2}c^{2}

= (ab + bc)^{2}

(iii)

Given: a/b = b/c

⇒ b^{2} = ac

Consider (a^{2} + b^{2})/ab = (a^{2} + ac)/ab (∵ b^{2} = ac)

= (a + c)/b

**Answer:**

(i) Three numbers ‘a’, ‘b’ and ‘c’ are said to be continued proportion if a, b and c are in proportion,

i.e. a:b∷b:c

or b^{2} = ac

Here, a = 2, b = 4 and c = 8

∴ (4)^{2} = 2 × 8

⇒ 16 = 16, which holds true.

∴ 2, 4, 8 are in continued proportion.

(ii) Three numbers ‘a’, ‘b’ and ‘c’ are said to be continued proportion if a, b and c are in proportion,

i.e. a:b∷b:c

or b^{2} = ac

Here, a = 1, b = 2 and c = 3

∴ (2)^{2} = 1 × 3

⇒ 4 = 3, which does not hold true.

∴ 1, 2, 3 are not in continued proportion.

(iii) Three numbers ‘a’, ‘b’ and ‘c’ are said to be continued proportion if a, b and c are in proportion,

i.e. a:b∷b:c

or b^{2} = ac

Here, a = 9, b = 12 and c = 16

∴ (12)^{2} = 9 × 16

⇒ 144 = 144, which holds true.

∴ 9, 12, 16 are in continued proportion.

(iv) Three numbers ‘a’, ‘b’ and ‘c’ are said to be continued proportion if a, b and c are in proportion,

i.e. a:b∷b:c

or b^{2} = ac

Here, a = 3, b = 5 and c = 8

**Answer:**

(i)

Given: a, b, c, d are in proportion.

a, b, c, d are in proportion a : b : : c : d ad = bc

i.e. Product of extremes = product of means.

∴ ad = bc

If then:

(11a^{2} + 9ac)(b^{2} + 3bd) = (a^{2} + 3ac)(11b^{2} + 9bd)

⇒ 11a^{2}b^{2} + 33a^{2}bd + 9ab^{2}c + 27abcd = 11a^{2}b^{2} +9a^{2}bd + 33ab^{2}c + 27abcd

⇒ 33a^{2}bd + 9ab^{2}c = 9a^{2}bd + 33ab^{2}c

⇒ 24a^{2}bd = 24ab^{2}c

⇒ a^{2}bd = ab^{2}c

⇒ ad = bc, which holds true as the numbers are in continued proportion.

∴

(ii)

Given: a, b, c, d are in proportion.

a, b, c, d are in proportion a : b : : c : d ad = bc

i.e. Product of extremes = product of means.

∴ ad = bc

If

then:

(a^{2} + 5c^{2})(b^{2}) = (b^{2} + 5d^{2})(a^{2})

⇒ a^{2}b^{2} + 5c^{2}b^{2} = b^{2}a^{2} + 5a^{2}d^{2}

⇒ 5b^{2}c^{2} = 5a^{2}d^{2}

⇒ b^{2}c^{2} = a^{2}d^{2}

⇒ bc = ad

⇒ ad = bc, which holds true as the numbers are in continued proportion.

∴

(iii)

Given: a, b, c, d are in proportion.

a, b, c, d are in proportion a : b : : c : d ad = bc

i.e. Product of extremes = product of means.

∴ ad = bc

If then:

(a^{2} + ab + b^{2})(c^{2} – cd + d^{2}) = (a^{2} - ab + b^{2})(c^{2} + cd + d^{2})

⇒ a^{2}c^{2} - a^{2}cd + a^{2}d^{2} + abc^{2} – abcd + abd^{2} + b^{2}c^{2} – b^{2}cd + b^{2}d^{2} = a^{2}c^{2} + a^{2}cd + a^{2}d^{2} - abc^{2} – abcd - abd^{2} + b^{2}c^{2} + b^{2}cd + b^{2}d^{2}

⇒ -2a^{2}cd + 2abc^{2} + 2abd^{2} -2b^{2}cd = 0

⇒ 2abc^{2} - 2b^{2}cd = 2a^{2}cd – 2abd^{2}

⇒ 2bc[ac – bd] = 2ad[ac - bd]

⇒ 2bc = 2ad

⇒ ad = bc, which holds true as the numbers are in continued proportion.

If then:

a(a - 4c) = (a – 2b)(a + 2b)

⇒ a^{2} – 4ac = a^{2} – 4b^{2}

⇒ -4ac = -4b^{2}

⇒ b^{2} = ac, which holds true as the numbers are in continued proportion.

∴

(ii) Given: a, b, c are in continued proportion.

∴ b^{2} = ac

If then:

b(a - c) = (a – b)(b + c)

⇒ ab – bc = ab + ac – b^{2} - bc

⇒ ab – bc - ab - ac + bc = -b^{2}

⇒ -ac = -b^{2}

⇒ b^{2} = ac, which holds true as the numbers are in continued proportion.
