Q23: Find all pairs of consecutive odd positive integers both of which are smaller than 10 such that their sum is more than 11.
Ans: Let x be the smaller of the two consecutive odd positive integers. Then, the other integer is    
x + 2.
Since both the integers are smaller than 10,
x + 2 < 10
x < 10 – 2
x < 8 … (i)
Also, the sum of the two integers is more than 11.
x + (x +  2) > 11
⇒ 2+  2 > 11
⇒ 2x > 11 – 2
⇒ 2x > 9

NCERT Solutions Class 11 Maths Chapter 5 - Linear Inequalities
From (i) and (ii), we obtain .
Since x is an odd number, x can take the values, 5 and 7.
Thus, the required possible pairs are (5, 7) and (7, 9).

Q24: Find all pairs of consecutive even positive integers, both of which are larger than 5 such that their sum is less than 23.

Since both the integers are larger than 5,
x > 5 ... (1)
Also, the sum of the two integers is less than 23.
x + (x + 2) < 23
⇒ 2x + 2 < 23
⇒ 2x < 23 – 2
⇒ 2x < 21

NCERT Solutions Class 11 Maths Chapter 5 - Linear Inequalities

From (1) and (2), we obtain 5 < x < 10.5.
Since x is an even number, x can take the values, 6, 8, and 10.
Thus, the required possible pairs are (6, 8), (8, 10), and (10, 12).

Q25: The longest side of a triangle is 3 times the shortest side and the third side is 2 cm shorter than the longest side. If the perimeter of the triangle is at least 61 cm, find the minimum length of the shortest side.

Then, length of the longest side = 3x cm
Length of the third side = (3x – 2) cm
Since the perimeter of the triangle is at least 61 cm,

NCERT Solutions Class 11 Maths Chapter 5 - Linear Inequalities

Thus, the minimum length of the shortest side is 9 cm.

Q26: A man wants to cut three lengths from a single piece of board of length 91 cm. The second length is to be 3 cm longer than the shortest and the third length is to be twice as long as the shortest. What are the possible lengths of the shortest board if the third piece is to be at least 5 cm longer than the second?
[Hint: If x is the length of the shortest board, then x, (x + 3) and 2x are the lengths of the second and third piece, respectively. Thus, x = (x + 3)+ 2x ≤ 91 and 2x ≥ (x + 3) +5]
Ans: Let the length of the shortest piece be x cm. Then, length of the second piece and the third piece are (x + 3) cm and 2x cm respectively.
Since the three lengths are to be cut from a single piece of board of length 91 cm,
x cm+ (x + 3) cm + 2x cm ≤ 91 cm
⇒ 4x + 3 ≤ 91
⇒ 4x ≤ 91 ­– 3
⇒ 4x ≤ 88

NCERT Solutions Class 11 Maths Chapter 5 - Linear Inequalities
Also, the third piece is at least 5 cm longer than the second piece.
∴ 2x ≥ (x + 3)+ 5
⇒ 2xx + 8
x ≥ 8 … (2)
From (1) and (2), we obtain
8 ≤ x ≤ 22
Thus, the possible length of the shortest board is greater than or equal to 8 cm but less than or equal to 22 cm.

Q37: A solution of 8% boric acid is to be diluted by adding a 2% boric acid solution to it. The resulting mixture is to be more than 4% but less than 6% boric acid. If we have 640 litres of the 8% solution, how many litres of the 2% solution will have to be added?
Ans: Let x litres of 2% boric acid solution is required to be added.
Then, total mixture = (x + 640) litres
This resulting mixture is to be more than 4% but less than 6% boric acid.
∴ 2%x + 8% of 640 > 4% of (x + 640)
And, 2% x  + 8% of 640 < 6% of (x + 640)
2%x + 8% of 640 > 4% of (x + 640)

NCERT Solutions Class 11 Maths Chapter 5 - Linear Inequalities
⇒ 2x + 5120 > 4x + 2560
⇒ 5120 – 2560 > 4x – 2x
⇒ 5120 – 2560 > 2x
⇒ 2560 > 2x
⇒ 1280 > x
2% x + 8% of 640 < 6% of (x  640)

NCERT Solutions Class 11 Maths Chapter 5 - Linear Inequalities
⇒ 2x + 5120 < 6x + 3840
⇒ 5120 – 3840 < 6x – 2x
⇒ 1280 < 4x
⇒ 320 < x
∴ 320 < x < 1280
Thus, the number of litres of 2% of boric acid solution that is to be added will have to be more than 320 litres but less than 1280 litres.

Q38: How many litres of water will have to be added to 1125 litres of the 45% solution of acid so that the resulting mixture will contain more than 25% but less than 30% acid content?
Ans: Let x litres of water is required to be added.
Then, total mixture = (x + 1125) litres
It is evident that the amount of acid contained in the resulting mixture is 45% of 1125 litres.
This resulting mixture will contain more than 25% but less than 30% acid content.
∴ 30% of (1125 + x) > 45% of 1125
And, 25% of (1125 + x) < 45% of 1125
30% of (1125 + x) > 45% of 1125

NCERT Solutions Class 11 Maths Chapter 5 - Linear Inequalities
25% of (1125 + x) < 45% of 1125

NCERT Solutions Class 11 Maths Chapter 5 - Linear Inequalities
∴ 562.5 < x < 900
Thus, the required number of litres of water that is to be added will have to be more than 562.5 but less than 900.

FAQs on NCERT Solutions Class 11 Maths Chapter 5 - Linear Inequalities

1. What are linear inequalities?
Ans. Linear inequalities are mathematical statements that compare two expressions using inequality symbols such as <, >, ≤, or ≥. They represent a range of values that satisfy the given conditions.
2. How are linear inequalities solved graphically?
Ans. Linear inequalities can be solved graphically by representing them on a coordinate plane. The solution to the inequality is the shaded region that includes all points that satisfy the inequality.
3. How are linear inequalities solved algebraically?
Ans. Linear inequalities can be solved algebraically by isolating the variable on one side of the inequality sign. The solution is expressed in terms of the variable, showing the range of values that satisfy the inequality.
4. What are the different types of solutions to linear inequalities?
Ans. Linear inequalities can have one solution, no solution, or infinitely many solutions, depending on the given inequality. One solution is a specific value that satisfies the inequality, no solution occurs when there is a contradiction, and infinitely many solutions occur when any value of the variable satisfies the inequality.
5. How are linear inequalities used in real-life scenarios?
Ans. Linear inequalities are used in real-life scenarios to represent constraints or limitations. For example, they can be used to determine the number of items to produce to maximize profit or to set boundaries on certain variables in a problem.
