**Q.1. Solve the following pair of linear equations by the substitution method(i) x + y = 14x – y = 4(ii) s – t = 3(s / 3) + (t / 2) = 6(iii) 3x – y = 39x – 3y = 9(iv) 0.2x + 0.3y = 1.30.4x + 0.5y = 2.3(v) √2 x + √3 y = 0√3 x - √8 y = 0(vi) (3x / 2) – (5y / 3) = -2(x / 3) + (y / 2) = (13 / 6)Solution: (i) **Given,

x + y = 14 and x – y = 4 are the two equations.

From 1st equation, we get, x = 14 – y

Now, substitute the value of x in second equation to get,

(14 – y) – y = 4

14 – 2y = 4

2y = 10

Or y = 5

By the value of y, we can now find the exact value of x;

∵ x = 14 – y

∴ x = 14 – 5 Or x = 9

Hence, x = 9 and y = 5.

From 1st equation, we get, s = 3 + t .......(1)

Now, substitute the value of s in second equation to get,

(3 + t) / 3 + (t / 2) = 6

⇒ (2(3 + t) + 3t ) / 6 = 6

⇒ (6 + 2t + 3t) / 6 = 6

⇒ (6 + 5t) = 36

⇒ 5t = 30

⇒ t = 6

Now, substitute the value of t in equation (1)

s = 3 + 6 = 9

Therefore, s = 9 and t = 6.

3x – y = 3 and 9x – 3y = 9 are the two equations.

From 1st equation, we get,

x = (3 + y) / 3

Now, substitute the value of x in the given second equation to get,

9(3 + y) / 3 – 3y = 9

⇒ 9 + 3y - 3y = 9

⇒ 9 = 9

Therefore, y has infinite values and since, x = (3 + y) / 3, so x also has infinite values.

0.2x + 0.3y = 1.3 and 0.4x + 0.5y = 2.3 are the two equations.

From 1st equation, we get,

x = (1.3 - 0.3y) / 0.2 .......(1)

Now, substitute the value of x in the given second equation to get,

0.4(1.3 - 0.3y) / 0.2 + 0.5y = 2.3

⇒ 2(1.3 – 0.3y) + 0.5y = 2.3

⇒ 2.6 – 0.6y + 0.5y = 2.3

⇒ 2.6 – 0.1 y = 2.3

⇒ 0.1 y = 0.3

⇒ y = 3

Now, substitute the value of y in equation (1), we get,

x = (1.3 - 0.3(3)) / 0.2 = (1.3 - 0.9) / 0.2 = 0.4 / 0.2 = 2

Therefore, x = 2 and y = 3.

√2 x + √3 y = 0 and √3 x – √8 y = 0

are the two equations.

From 1st equation, we get,

x = – (√3 / √2)y ..........(1)

Putting the value of x in the given second equation to get,

√3(-√3 / √2)y – √8y = 0

⇒ (-3 / √2)y - √8 y = 0

⇒ y = 0

Now, substitute the value of y in equation (1), we get,

x = 0

Therefore, x = 0 and y = 0.

(3x / 2) - (5y / 3) = -2 and (x / 3) + (y / 2) = 13 / 6 are the two equations.

From 1st equation, we get,

(3 / 2)x = -2 + (5y / 3)

⇒ x = 2(-6 + 5y) / 9 = (-12 + 10y) / 9 …………(1)

Putting the value of x in the given second equation to get,

((-12 + 10y) / 9) / 3 + y / 2 = 13 / 6

⇒ y / 2 = 13 / 6 – ((-12 + 10y) / 27 ) + y / 2 = 13 / 6

Now, substitute the value of y in equation (1), we get,

(3x / 2) – 5(3) / 3 = -2

⇒ (3x / 2) – 5 = -2

⇒ x = 2

Therefore, x = 2 and y = 3.

Solution:

2x – 4y = -24……………(II)

From equation (II), we get

x = (11 - 3y) / 2 ……………….(III)

Substituting the value of x in equation (II), we get

2(11 - 3y) / 2 – 4y = 24

11 – 3y – 4y = -24

-7y = -35

y = 5…………………(IV)

Putting the value of y in equation (III), we get

x = (11 - 3 × 5) / 2 = -4 / 2 = -2

Hence, x = -2, y = 5

Also,

y = mx + 3

5 = -2m +3

-2m = 2

m = -1

(i) The difference between two numbers is 26 and one number is three times the other. Find them.

According to the question,

y = 3x ……………… (1)

y – x = 26 …………..(2)

Substituting the value of (1) into (2), we get

3x – x = 26

x = 13 ……………. (3)

Substituting (3) in (1), we get y = 39

**(ii) The larger of two supplementary angles exceeds the smaller by 18 degrees. Find them.****Solution: **Let the larger angle by xº and smaller angle be yº.

We know that the sum of two supplementary pair of angles is always 180º.

According to the question,

x + y = 180º……………. (1)

x – y = 18º ……………..(2)

From (1), we get x = 180º – y …………. (3)

Substituting (3) in (2), we get

180º – y – y =18º

162º = 2y

y = 81º ………….. (4)

Using the value of y in (3), we get

x = 180º – 81º

= 99º**Hence, the angles are 99º and 81º.**

**(iii) The coach of a cricket team buys 7 bats and 6 balls for Rs.3800. Later, she buys 3 bats and 5 balls for Rs.1750. Find the cost of each bat and each ball.****Solution: **Let the cost a bat be x and cost of a ball be y.

According to the question,

7x + 6y = 3800 ………………. (I)

3x + 5y = 1750 ………………. (II)

From (I), we get

y = (3800 - 7x) / 6………………..(III)

Substituting (III) in (II). we get,

3x + 5(3800 - 7x) / 6 =1750

⇒ 3x + 9500 / 3 – 35x / 6 = 1750

⇒ 3x - 35x / 6 = 1750 – 9500 / 3

⇒ (18x - 35x) / 6 = (5250 – 9500) / 3

⇒ -17x / 6 = -4250 / 3

⇒ -17x = -8500

x = 500 ……………………….. (IV)

Substituting the value of x in (III), we get

y = (3800 - 7 × 500) / 6 = 300 / 6 = 50**Hence, the cost of a bat is Rs 500 and cost of a ball is Rs 50.**

**(iv) The taxi charges in a city consist of a fixed charge together with the charge for the distance covered. For a distance of 10 km, the charge paid is Rs 105 and for a journey of 15 km, the charge paid is Rs 155. What are the fixed charges and the charge per km? How much does a person have to pay for travelling a distance of 25 km?****Solution: **Let the fixed charge be Rs x and per km charge be Rs y.

According to the question,

x + 10y = 105 …………….. (1)

x + 15y = 155 …………….. (2)

From (1), we get x = 105 – 10y ………………. (3)

Substituting the value of x in (2), we get

105 – 10y + 15y = 155

5y = 50 y = 10 …………….. (4)

Putting the value of y in (3), we get

x = 105 – 10 × 10 = 5**Hence, fixed charge is Rs 5 and per km charge = Rs 10**

**(v) A fraction becomes 9 / 11, if 2 is added to both the numerator and the denominator. If, 3 is added to both the numerator and the denominator it becomes 5 / 6. Find the fraction.****Solution: **Let the fraction be x / y.

According to the question,

(x + 2) / (y + 2) = 9 / 11

11x + 22 = 9y + 18

11x – 9y = -4 …………….. (1)

(x + 3) / (y + 3) = 5 / 6

6x + 18 = 5y +15

6x – 5y = -3 ………………. (2)

From (1), we get x = (-4 + 9y) / 11 …………….. (3)

Substituting the value of x in (2), we get

6(-4 + 9y) / 11 - 5y = -3

-24 + 54y – 55y = -33

-y = -9

y = 9 ………………… (4)

Substituting the value of y in (3), we get

x = (-4 + 9 × 9 ) / 11 = 7**Hence the fraction is 7 / 9.**

**(vi) Five years hence, the age of Jacob will be three times that of his son. Five years ago, Jacob’s age was seven times that of his son. What are their present ages?****Solution: **Let the age of Jacob and his son be x and y respectively.

According to the question, (x + 5) = 3(y + 5) x – 3y = 10 ………………………(1)

(x – 5) = 7(y – 5) x – 7y = -30 ………………………(2)

From (1), we get x = 3y + 10 ……………………. (3)

Substituting the value of x in (2), we get

3y + 10 – 7y = -30

-4y = -40

y = 10 ………………(4)

Substituting the value of y in (3), we get

x = 3 x 10 + 10 = 40**Hence, the present age of Jacob’s and his son is 40 years and 10 years respectively.**
