###### Exercise 3.1

**Question 1.**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.” (Isn’t this interesting?) Represent this situation algebraically and graphically.

**Answer:****Given:** Seven years ago, Aftab was seven times as old as his daughter and after 3 years Aftab will be 3 times as old as his daughter.

To Represent the situations algebraically and graphically we need to find the linear equations for these situations.

Let present age of Aftab = x

Let present age of his daughter = y

Then, seven years ago the age of Aftab and his daughter must have been seven less than their present ages,

Age of Aftab seven years ago = x – 7

Age of Daughter seven years ago = y – 7

According to the question,

Seven years ago, Aftab was seven times as old as his daughter, So

x - 7 = 7(y - 7)

⇒ x - 7 = 7y - 49

⇒ x = 7y - 42

Now for finding different points of this equation, we can either take different values of x and put them in the equation to obtain values of y or vice versa

Putting y = 5, 6 and 7 in equation (¡),

we get,

For y = 5,

x = 7 × 5 – 42

= 35 – 42

= -7

For x =6,

x = 7 × 6 – 42

= 42 – 42

= 0

For y = 7,

x = 7 × 7 – 42

= 49 – 42

= 7

Thus we got 3 points to plot on graph for this equation.

Three years from now,

Age of Aftab = x+3

Age of Daughter = y+3

According to the question,

⇒ x + 3 = 3(y + 3)

⇒ x + 3 = 3y + 9

⇒ x = 3y + 6

Now for finding different points of this equation, we can either take different values of x and put them in equation to obtain values of y or vice versa

Putting x = 0, 3 and 6

Thus we got 3 points to plot on graph for this equation.

**Algebraic representation**

x - 7y = -42 (i)

x - 3y = 6 (ii)

**Graphical representation:**

**Question 2.**The coach of a cricket team buys 3 bats and 6 balls for Rs 3900. Later, she buys another bat and 3 more balls of the same kind for Rs 1300. Represent this situation algebraically and geometrically.

**Answer:**We need to form linear equations for the situations.

Let cost of one bat = Rs. x

Let cost of one ball = Rs. y

In first case, three bats and 6 balls cost him 3900 rupees. therefore our equation becomes

⇒ 3x + 6y = 3900 ........(i)

Dividing equation by 3 both side

⇒ x + 2y = 1300

⇒ x = 1300 - 2y

For plotting the equation of graph, take different values of y and obtain the value of x from equation or you can do vice versa

At y = 0

⇒ x = 1300 - 2(0)

⇒ x = 1300

Now finding the value at x = 0

⇒ 0 = 1300 - 2y

⇒ 2y = 1300

⇒ y = 650

From above points, we make the graph as follows [Graphic representation]

In second case he buys one bat and 3 balls for 1300, therefore,

⇒ x + 3y = 1300 ......(ii) [Algebraic representation]

⇒ x = 1300 - 3y

At y = 400

⇒ x = 1300 - 3(400)

⇒ x = 100

At y = 300

⇒ x = 1300 - 3(300)

⇒ x = 400

From above points, we make the graph as follows, [Graphical representation]

**Question 3.**The cost of 2 kg of apples and 1kg of grapes on a day was found to be Rs 160. After a month, the cost of 4 kg of apples and 2 kg of grapes is Rs 300. Represent the situation algebraically and geometrically.

**Answer:**Let the cost of each kg of apples = Rs. X

Let the cost of each kg of grapes = Rs. Y

According to the question,

Cost of 2 kg of Apples = 2 x

Cost of 1 kg of grapes = y

Putting y = 20, 40 and 60 we get,

x = (160 - 20)/2 = 70

x = (160 - 40))/2 = 60

x = (160 - 60)/2 = 50

Algebraic Representation:

2 x + y = 160

Graphical Representation:

Now taking another case

Cost of 4 kg of apples and 2 kg of grapes is Rs. 300……………………………(Given)

So,

Dividing the equation by 2 , we get,

Putting x = 70, 75 and 80 we get,

y = 150 – 2×70 = 10

y = 150 – 2(75) = 0

y = 150 – 2(80) = 150 – 160 = -10

Algebraic representation :

4 x + 2 y = 300

Graphical representation :

**Question 1.**

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.” (Isn’t this interesting?) Represent this situation algebraically and graphically.

**Answer:**

**Given:** Seven years ago, Aftab was seven times as old as his daughter and after 3 years Aftab will be 3 times as old as his daughter.

To Represent the situations algebraically and graphically we need to find the linear equations for these situations.

Let present age of Aftab = x

Let present age of his daughter = y

Then, seven years ago the age of Aftab and his daughter must have been seven less than their present ages,

Age of Aftab seven years ago = x – 7

Age of Daughter seven years ago = y – 7

According to the question,

Seven years ago, Aftab was seven times as old as his daughter, Sox - 7 = 7(y - 7)

⇒ x - 7 = 7y - 49

⇒ x = 7y - 42

Putting y = 5, 6 and 7 in equation (¡),

we get,For y = 5,

x = 7 × 5 – 42

= 35 – 42

= -7

For x =6,

x = 7 × 6 – 42

= 42 – 42

= 0

For y = 7,

x = 7 × 7 – 42

= 49 – 42

= 7

Thus we got 3 points to plot on graph for this equation.

Three years from now,

Age of Aftab = x+3

Age of Daughter = y+3

According to the question,

⇒ x + 3 = 3(y + 3)

⇒ x + 3 = 3y + 9

⇒ x = 3y + 6

Putting x = 0, 3 and 6

Thus we got 3 points to plot on graph for this equation.**Algebraic representation**

x - 7y = -42 (i)

x - 3y = 6 (ii)

**Graphical representation:**

**Question 2.**

The coach of a cricket team buys 3 bats and 6 balls for Rs 3900. Later, she buys another bat and 3 more balls of the same kind for Rs 1300. Represent this situation algebraically and geometrically.

**Answer:**

We need to form linear equations for the situations.

Let cost of one bat = Rs. x

Let cost of one ball = Rs. y

In first case, three bats and 6 balls cost him 3900 rupees. therefore our equation becomes

⇒ 3x + 6y = 3900 ........(i)

Dividing equation by 3 both side

⇒ x + 2y = 1300

⇒ x = 1300 - 2y

For plotting the equation of graph, take different values of y and obtain the value of x from equation or you can do vice versa

At y = 0

⇒ x = 1300 - 2(0)

⇒ x = 1300

Now finding the value at x = 0

⇒ 0 = 1300 - 2y

⇒ 2y = 1300

⇒ y = 650

From above points, we make the graph as follows [Graphic representation]

In second case he buys one bat and 3 balls for 1300, therefore,

⇒ x + 3y = 1300 ......(ii) [Algebraic representation]

⇒ x = 1300 - 3y

At y = 400

⇒ x = 1300 - 3(400)

⇒ x = 100

At y = 300

⇒ x = 1300 - 3(300)

⇒ x = 400

From above points, we make the graph as follows, [Graphical representation]

**Question 3.**

The cost of 2 kg of apples and 1kg of grapes on a day was found to be Rs 160. After a month, the cost of 4 kg of apples and 2 kg of grapes is Rs 300. Represent the situation algebraically and geometrically.

**Answer:**

Let the cost of each kg of apples = Rs. X

Let the cost of each kg of grapes = Rs. Y

According to the question,

Cost of 2 kg of Apples = 2 xCost of 1 kg of grapes = y

Putting y = 20, 40 and 60 we get,

x = (160 - 20)/2 = 70

x = (160 - 40))/2 = 60

x = (160 - 60)/2 = 50

Algebraic Representation:

2 x + y = 160

Graphical Representation:

Now taking another case

Cost of 4 kg of apples and 2 kg of grapes is Rs. 300……………………………(Given)

So,

Dividing the equation by 2 , we get,

Putting x = 70, 75 and 80 we get,

y = 150 – 2×70 = 10

y = 150 – 2(75) = 0

y = 150 – 2(80) = 150 – 160 = -10

Algebraic representation :

4 x + 2 y = 300

**Question 5.**Half the perimeter of a rectangular garden, whose length is 4 m more than its width, is 36 m. Find the dimensions of the garden.

**Answer:**Let the length and breadth of garden be 'x' and 'y' respectively.

Given,

Half the perimeter is 36 m

We know perimeter of Rectangle = 2(length + breadth)

Half the perimeter = x + y

⇒ x + y = 36

⇒ x = 36 - y [1]

Also, Length is 4 m more than width

⇒ x = y + 4 [2]

From [1] and [2], we have

Hence, the pair of linear equations is inconsistent.

**Question 5.**

Half the perimeter of a rectangular garden, whose length is 4 m more than its width, is 36 m. Find the dimensions of the garden.

**Answer:**

Let the length and breadth of garden be 'x' and 'y' respectively.

Given,

Half the perimeter is 36 m

We know perimeter of Rectangle = 2(length + breadth)

Half the perimeter = x + y

⇒ x + y = 36

⇒ x = 36 - y [1]

Also, Length is 4 m more than width

⇒ x = y + 4 [2]

From [1] and [2], we have

36 - y = y + 4

⇒ 2y = 32

⇒ y = 16

Putting in [1], we have

⇒ x = 36 - 16 = 20

Hence, Length and Breadth of garden are 20 m and 16 m respectively.

**Question 6.**

Given the linear equation write another linear equation in two variables such that the geometrical representation of the pair so formed is:

(i) intersecting lines

(ii) parallel lines

(iii) coincident lines

**Answer:**

**(i)**__Intersecting lines:__ For this condition,

The second line such that it is intersecting the given line is

2x + 4y - 6 = 0

As

**(ii)**__Parallel lines:__

For this condition,

Hence, the second line can be 4*x* + 6y - 8 = 0

As

So,

**(iii)**__Coincident lines:__ For coincident lines,

Hence,

the second line can be 6*x* + 9*y* - 24 = 0

So,

**Question 1.**Solve the following pair of linear equations by the substitution method.

**Answer:**i) x + y = 14...............(i)

x - y = 4....................(ii)

From equation (i)

take x on one side and when we take y to the other side its sign changes and we get,

x = 14 - y .........(iii)

Putting value of x in equation (ii) we get,

(14 - y) - y = 4

14 - 2y = 4
