QUESTION: 11

The diagonal of a rectangle is 5 cm and one of at sides is 4 cm. Its area is

Solution:

Given :-

one side = a = 4cm

nd diagonal = h = 5cm

Let, the other side be 'b'

Now,

By applying pythgoras theorem ;

find base,

b^2 = h^2 - p^2

b^2 = (5)^2 - (4)^2

b^2 = 25 - 16

b^2 = 9

b = 3

So, the two sides are 4cm and 3cm

Then ;

Area of rect. = length * breadth

ar. = 4 * 3

ar. = 12 cm^2

Solution:

Let the first part be x
other part is 56 - x
three times the first part exceeds one third of the second party by 48
3x = 1/3(56-x) + 48
9x = 56-x + 144
9x + x = 200
10x = 200
x = 20

First part, x =  20
Second part, 56 - x = 36

QUESTION: 13

The sum of the digits of a two digit number is 10. If 18 be subtracted from it, the digits in the resulting number will be equal. The number is

Solution:

x = 10's digit of a two digit number(Let)

y = units digit(Let)

n=Resulting equal digits(Let)

Condition 1-the sum of a two digit number is 10

x + y = 10

further simplifying

y = (10-x)

Condition 2-if 18 be subtracted from it the digits in the resulting number will be equal

10x + y - 18 = 10n + n

10x + y = 11n+ 18

Substitutituting values found above

10x + (10-x) = 11n + 18

10x - x = 11n + 18 - 10

9x = 11n+ 8

If we solve it we will found the values as - x = 7, y = 3, z = 5 and finally we can say the no. is 73.

QUESTION: 19

A number consists of two digits. The digits in the ten’s place is 3 times the digit in the unit’s place. If 54 is subtracted from the number the digits are reversed. The number is

Solution:

Let the digit at Tens place be x

The digit at unit place be y

The Number is 10x + y

ACCORDING TO THE QUESTION :-

x = 3y ... eq. 01

According to the second condition :

10x + y - 54 = 10y + x

=> 9x - 9y = 54

=> 9(x - y) = 9 × 6

=> x - y = 6 ... eq.02

Now we can solve the Equation 01 and 02 by substitution Method :-

x - y = 6

=> 3y - y = 6 [ from eq.01 , x = 3y ]

=> 2y = 6

=> y = 3

Now we can substitute the value of y in eq. 01 to get value of x

x = 3y

=> x = 3 × 3

=> x = 9

Hence the number is

Hence the number is 10x + y = 90 + 3 = 93 (ANS)

QUESTION: 23

The values of x and y satisfying the equations are given by the pair.

Solution:
QUESTION: 24 are satisfied by the values given by the pair.

Solution:

According to the given question,

i ) x + y = p + q

x = p + q - y ---------( 1 )

ii ) x / p + y / q = 2

Multiply each term with pq we get

qx + py = 2pq ---------( 2 )

Put x value , from ( 1 ) in equation ( 2)

q( p + q - y) + py = 2pq

pq + q^2 - qy + py = 2pq

- qy + py = 2pq - pq - q^2

y ( - q + p) = pq - q^2

y ( p - q ) = q ( p - q )

y = q ( p - q )/ ( p - q )

y = q -----( 3 )

Put y = q in ( 1 )

x = p + q - q

x = p

Therefore ,

x = p and y = q

Solution:

I want to show you a good method to solve these equations.  Take time to read it and follow it.  This is the method in the International standards.  It is easy when you understand it.

1.5  x  + 2.4 y  -  1.8  =  0

2.5  x  -  7 y   + 2.5   =  0

For solving :  a x + b y + c  =  0     and    d x + e y + f  = 0 ,  we do as mentioned in the diagram enclosed.  This is the easier way.

-1.8      1.5      2.4      -1.8

2.5      2.5        -7       2.5

y                    x

x =   (-7*-1.8  -  2.4*2.5 ) / (2.5 * 2.4  - 1.5*-7)

= (12.6  -  6) / (6 + 10.5)  =  6.6/16.5 =  0.4  = 2/5

y =  (2.5*1.5 -  -1.8*2.5) / (2.5*2.4 - 1.5*-7)

= (3.75 + 4.5) / 16.5    =  8.25 / 16.5  = 0.5 = 1/2
