**Exercise 3.1****Q.1. Akhila went to a fair in her village. She wanted to enjoy rides on the Giant Wheel and play Hoopla (a game in which you throw a rig on the items kept in the stall, and if the ring covers any object completely you get it). The number of times she played Hoopla is half the number of rides she had on the Giant Wheel. Each ride costs Rs 3, and a game of Hoopla costs Rs 4. If she spent Rs 20 in the fair, represent this situation algebraically and graphically. Sol: The pair of equations formed is:****Solution.**

The pair of equations formed is:

i.e., x - 2y = 0 ....(1)

3x + 4y = 20 ....(2)

Let us represent these equations graphically. For this, we need at least two solutions for each equation. We give these solutions in Table

Recall from Class IX that there are infinitely many solutions of each linear equation. So each of you choose any two values, which may not be the ones we have chosen. Can you guess why we have chosen x =O in the first equation and in the second equation? When one of the variables is zero, the equation reduces to a linear equation is one variable, which can be solved easily. For instance, putting x =O in Equation (2), we get 4y = 20 i.e.,

y = 5. Similarly, putting y =O in Equation (2), we get 3x = 20 ..,But asis not an integer, it will not be easy to plot exactly on the graph paper. So, we choose y = 2 which gives x = 4, an integral value.

Plot the points A (O,O) , B (2,1) and P (O,5) , Q (412) , corresponding to the draw the lines AB and PQ, representing the equations x - 2 y = O and 3x + 4y= 20, as shown in figure

In fig., observe that the two lines representing the two equations are intersecting at the point (4,2),**Q.2. Aftab tells his daughter, “Seven years ago, I was seven times as old as you were then. Also, three years from now, I shall be three times as old as you will be.” Is not this interesting? Represent this situation algebraically and graphically.**

Sol: Let the present age of Aftab and his daughter be x and y respectively. Seven years ago.

Age of Ahab = x - 7

Age of his daughter y - 7

According to the given condition.

(x - 7) = 7(y - 7)

⇒ x - 7 = 7y - 49

⇒ x - 7y = -42

Three years hence

Age of Aftab = x + 3

Age of his daughter = y + 3

According to the given condition,

(x + 3) = 3 (y + 3)

⇒ x+3 = 3y +9

⇒ x - 3y = 6

Thus, the given condition can be algebraically represented as

x - 7y = - 42

x - 3y = 6

x - 7y = - 42 ⇒ x = -42 + 7y

Three solution of this equation can be written in a table as follows:

x - 3y = 6 ⇒ x = 6+3y

Three solution of this equation can be written in a table as follows:

The graphical representation is as follows:

Concept insight In order to represent a given situation mathematically, first see what we need to find out in the problem. Here. Aftab and his daughters present age needs to be found so, so the ages will be represented by variables z and y. The problem talks about their ages seven years ago and three years from now. Here, the words ’seven years ago’ means we have to subtract 7 from their present ages. and ‘three years from now’ or three years hence means we have to add 3 to their present ages. Remember in order to represent the algebraic equations graphically the solution set of equations must be taken as whole numbers only for the accuracy. Graph of the two linear equations will be represented by a straight line.**Q.3. ****The path of a train A is given by the equation 3x + 4y - 12 = 0 and the path of another train B is given by the equation 6x + 8y - 48 = 0. Represent this situation graphically.****Sol:**

The paths of two trains are giver by the following pair of linear equations.

3x + 4 y -12 = 0 ...(1)

6x + 8 y - 48 = 0 ... (2)

In order to represent the above pair of linear equations graphically. We need two points on the line representing each equation. That is, we find two solutions of each equation as given below:

We have,

3x + 4 y -12 = 0

Putting y = 0, we get

3x + 4 x 0 - 12 = 0

⇒ 3x = 12

⇒

Putting x = 0, we get

3 x 0 + 4 y -12 = 0

⇒ 4y = 12

⇒

Thus, two solution of equation 3x + 4y - 12 = 0 are ( 0, 3) and ( 4, 0 )

We have,

6x + 8y -48 = 0

Putting x = 0, we get

6 x 0 + 8 y - 48 = 0

⇒ 8y = 48

⇒

⇒ y = 6

Putting y = 0, we get

6x + 8 x 0 = 48 = 0

⇒ 6x = 48

⇒

Thus, two solution of equation 6 x + 8y - 48= 0 are ( 0, 6 ) and (8, 0 )

Clearly, two lines intersect at ( -1, 2 )

Hence, x = -1,y = 2 is the solution of the given system of equations.**Q.4. Gloria is walking along the path joining (— 2, 3) and (2, — 2), while Suresh is walking along the path joining (0, 5) and (4, 0). Represent this situation graphically.****Sol:**

It is given that Gloria is walking along the path Joining (-2,3) and (2, -2), while Suresh is walking along the path joining (0,5) and (4,0).

We observe that the lines are parallel and they do not intersect anywhere.**Q.5. On comparing the ratios and without drawing them, find out whether the lines representing the following pairs of linear equations intersect at a point, are parallel or coincide:**

7x + 6y - 9 = 0

(ii) 9x + 3y + 12 = 0

18x + 6y + 24 = 0

(iii) 6x - 3y + 10 = 0

2x - y + 9 = 0

We have,

5x - 4 y + 8 = 0

7 x + 6 y - 9 = 0

Here,

a

We have,

∴

∴ Two lines are intersecting with each other at a point.

We have,

9 x + 3 y +12 = 0

18 + 6 y + 24 = 0

Here,

Now,

And

∴

∴ Both the lines coincide.

We have,

6 x - 3 y +10 = 0

2 x - y + 9 = 0

Here,

Now,

And

∴

∴ The lines are parallel

(i) intersecting lines

(ii) parallel lines

(iii) coincident lines.

We have,

2x + 3 y - 8 = 0

Let another equation of line is

4x + 9 y - 4 = 0

Here,

a

a

Now,

And

∴

∴ 2x + 3 y - 8 = 0 and 4 x + 9 y - 4 = 0 intersect each other at one point.

Hence, required equation of line is 4 x + 9y - 4 = 0

We have,

2x + 3y -8 = 0

Let another equation of line is:

4x +6y -4 = 0

Here,

a

a

Now,

And

∴

∴ Lines are parallel to each other.

Hence, required equation of line is 4 x + 6y - 4 = 0.

Let the cost of 1 kg of apples and 1 kg grapes be Rs x and Rs y.

The given conditions can be algebraically represented as:

2 x + y = 160 4 x + 2 y = 300

2x + y = 160 ⇒ y = 160 - 2x

Three solutions of this equation cab be written in a table as follows:

4x + 2y = 300 ⇒ y =

Three solutions of this equation cab be written in a table as follows:

The graphical representation is as follows:
