### If A : Homogeneous system of linear equations is always consistent. R : x = 0, y = 0 is always a solution of the homogeneous system of equations with unknowns x and y, then which of the following statement is true?

Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Pair of Linear Equations in Two Variables - Question 1

Homogeneous system of  linear equations are of the form ax+by=0 and cx+dy=0. These lines pass through the origin. Thus, there is always at least one solution, the point (0,0).So, Homogeneous system of linear is always consistent, meaning that it has at least one solution which is (0,0). So B is the exact explanation.

Practice Test: Pair of Linear Equations in Two Variables - Question 20

Six years hence a man's age will be three times the age of his son and three years ago he was nine times as old as his son. The present age of the man is –

Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Pair of Linear Equations in Two Variables - Question 20

Let the present age of man is x and of son is y.
Six years hence,
Man’s age =x+6
Son’s age=y+6
Man’s age is 3 times son’s age
x+6=3(y+6)
x+6=3y+18
x=3y+12    …...1
Three years ago,
Man’s age =x-3
Son’s age=y-3
Man’s age was 9 times as of son
x-3=9(y-3)
x-3=9y-27
x=9y-24   ….2
From 1 and 2
3y+12=9y-24
6y=36
y=6
x=3*6+12=18+12=30 years

Practice Test: Pair of Linear Equations in Two Variables - Question 21

The solution of the equations x - y = 2 and x + y = 4 is:

Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Pair of Linear Equations in Two Variables - Question 21

x - y  = 2
x = 2 + y
Substituting the value of x in the second equation we get;
2 + y + y = 4
2 + 2y = 4
2y = 2
Y = 1
Now putting the value of y, we get;
x = 2 + 1 = 3
Hence, the solutions are x = 3 and y = 1.

Practice Test: Pair of Linear Equations in Two Variables - Question 22

The pairs of equations 9x + 3y + 12 = 0 and 18x + 6y + 26 = 0 have

Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Pair of Linear Equations in Two Variables - Question 22

Given, 9x + 3y + 12 = 0 and 18x + 6y + 26 = 0
a1/a2 = 9/18 = 1/2
b1/b2 = 3/6 = 1/2
c1/c2 = 12/26 = 6/13
Since, a1/a2 = b1/b2 ≠ c1/c2
So, the pairs of equations are parallel and the lines never intersect each other at any point, therefore there is no possible solution.

Practice Test: Pair of Linear Equations in Two Variables - Question 23

The pairs of equations x + 2y - 5 = 0 and -4x - 8y + 20 = 0 have:

Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Pair of Linear Equations in Two Variables - Question 23

a1/a2 = 1/-4
b1/b2 = 2/-8 = 1/-4
c1/c2 = -5/20 = -¼
This shows:
a1/a2 = b1/b2 = c1/c2
Therefore, the pair of equations has infinitely many solutions.

Practice Test: Pair of Linear Equations in Two Variables - Question 24

If the lines 3x + 2ky – 2 = 0 and 2x + 5y + 1 = 0 are parallel, then what is the value of k?

Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Pair of Linear Equations in Two Variables - Question 24

The condition for parallel lines is:
a1/a2 = b1/b2 ≠ c1/c2
Hence, 3/2 = 2k/5
k = 15/4
