Exercise 27A Page: 326

**1. Draw the graph for each equation, given below:**

**(i) x = 5 **

**(ii) x + 5 = 0**

**(iii) y = 7 **

**(iv) y + 7 = 0**

**(v) 2x + 3y = 0 **

**(vi) 3x + 2y = 6**

**(vii) x – 5y + 4 = 0 **

**(viii) 5x + y + 5 = 0**

**Solution:**

(i) x = 5

The graph x = 5 in the following figure is a straight line AB which is parallel to y axis at a distance of 5 units from it.

(ii) x + 5 = 0

Therefore x = -5

The graph x= -5 in the following figure is a straight-line AB which is parallel to y axis at a distance of 5 units from it in the negative x direction.

(iii) y = 7

The graph y = 7 in the following figure is a straight line AB which is parallel to x axis at a distance of 7 units from it.

(iv) y + 7 = 0

y = -7

The graph y = -7 in the following figure is a straight line AB which is parallel to x axis at a distance of 7 units from it in the negative y direction.

(v) Given 2x + 3y = 0

3y = -2x

Therefore, y = -2x/3

If x = -3, then y = -2(-3)/3 = 6/3 = 2

If x = 3, then y = -2(3)/3 = -6/3 = -2

If x = 6, then y = -2(6)/3 = -12/3 = -4

The points are

x |
-3 |
3 |
6 |

y |
2 |
-2 |
-4 |

Plotting these points, we get the required graph as given below:

(vi) Given 3x + 2y = 6

2y = 6 – 3x

Therefore, y = (6 – 3x)/2

If x = 0, then y = (6 – 3 × 0)/2 = 6 – 0/2 = 3

If x = 2, then y = (6 – 3 × 2)/2 = 6 – 6/2 = 0

If x = 4, then y = (6 – 3 × 4)/2 = 6 – 12/2 = -3

The points are

x |
0 |
2 |
4 |

y |
3 |
0 |
-3 |

Plotting these points, we get the required graph as given below:

(vii) Given x – 5y + 4 = 0

5y = 4 + x

Therefore, y = 4 + x/5

If x = 1, then y = (1 + 4)/5 = 5/5 = 1

If x = 6, then y = (6 + 4)/5 = 10/5 = 2

If x = -4, then y = (-4 + 4)/5 = 0/5 = 0

The points are

x |
1 |
6 |
-4 |

y |
1 |
2 |
0 |

Plotting these points, we get the required graph as given below:

(viii) Given 5x + y + 5 = 0

y = -5x – 5

If x = 0, then y = -5 (0) – 5 = 0 – 5 = -5

If x = -1, then y = -5 (-1) – 5 = 5 – 5 = 0

If x = -2, then y = -5 (-2) – 5 = 10 – 5 = 5

The points are

x |
0 |
-1 |
-2 |

y |
-5 |
0 |
5 |

Plotting these points, we get the required graph as given below:

**2. Draw the graph for each equation given below; hence find the co-ordinates of the**

**points where the graph drawn meets the co-ordinate axes:**

**(i) 1/3 x + 1/5 y = 1**

**(ii) (2x + 15)/3 = y – 1**

**Solution:**

(i) Given 1/3 x + 1/5 y = 1

Taking LCM. We get

5x + 3y / 15 = 1

On cross multiplication, we get

5x + 3y = 15

3y = 15 – 5x

y = (15 – 5x)/3

If x = 0, then y = (15 – 5 × 0)/3 = (15 – 0)/3 = 5

If x = 3, then y = (15 – 5 × 3)/3 = (15 – 15)/3 = 0

If x = -3, then y = (15 – 5 × -3)/3 = (15 + 15)/3 = 10

The points are

X |
0 |
3 |
-3 |

Y |
5 |
0 |
10 |

Plotting these points, we get the required graph as given below:

Hence the graph meets the coordinate axis at (3, 0) and (0, 5)

(ii) Given (2x + 15)/3 = y – 1

On cross multiplication we get

2x + 15 = 3(y – 1)

2x + 15 = 3y – 3

2x – 3y = -15 – 3

2x – 3y = -18

-3y = -18 – 2x

y = (-18 – 2x)/-3

If x = 0, then y = (- 18 – 2 × 0)/ – 3 = (-18 – 0)/-3 = 6

If x = -3, then y = (- 18 – 2 × -3)/ – 3 = (-18 + 6)/-3 = 4

If x = -6, then y = (- 18 – 2 × -6)/ – 3 = (-18 + 12)/-3 = 2

The points are

x |
0 |
-3 |
-6 |

y |
6 |
4 |
2 |

Plotting these points, we get the required graph as given below:

Hence, the graph meets the coordinate axis at (-9, 0) and (0, 6)

**3. Draw the graph of the straight line given by the equation 4x – 3y + 36 = 0. Calculate the area of the triangle formed by the line drawn and the co-ordinate axes.**

**Solution:**

Given 4x – 3y + 36 = 0

4x – 3y = – 36

-3y = -36 – 4x

3y = 36 + 4x

y = (36 + 4x)/3

If x = -6, then y = (36 + 4 × -6)/ 3 = (36 – 24)/3 = 4

If x = -3, then y = (36 + 4 × -3)/ 3 = (36 – 12)/3 = 8

If x = -9, then y = (36 + 4 × -9)/ 3 = (36 – 36)/3 = 0

The points are

X |
-9 |
-3 |
-6 |

Y |
0 |
8 |
4 |

Plotting these points

Hence the straight line cuts the coordinate axis at A(0, 12) and B(-9, 0)

Therefore, the triangle AOB is formed

Area of triangle AOB = ½ × AO × OB

= ½ × 12 × 9

= 54 sq. units.

Area of triangle AOB = 54 sq. units.

**4. Draw the graph of the equation 2x – 3y – 5 = 0. From the graph, find:**

**(i) x _{1}, the value of x, when y = 7**

**(ii) x _{2}, the value of x, when y = -5**

**Solution:**

Given 2x – 3y – 5 = 0

2x = 3y + 5

x = (3y + 5)/2

If y = 1, then x = (3 × 1 + 5)/ 2 = 8/2 = 4

If y = 3, then x = (3 × 3 + 5)/ 2 = 9 + 5/2 = 14/2 = 7

If y = -1, then x = (3 × -1 + 5)/ 2 = 5 – 3/2 = 2/2 = 1

The points are

X |
4 |
7 |
1 |

Y |
1 |
3 |
-1 |

Plotting these points

The value of x, when y = 7

We have the equation of the line as

x = (3y + 5)/2

now substitute y = 7 and x = x_{1}

x_{1 }= [3 (7) + 5]/2 = (21 + 5)/2 = 26/2 = 13

the value of x when y = -5

now substitute y = -5 and x = x_{2}

x_{2 }= [3 (-5) + 5)/2 = (-15 + 5)/2 = -10/2 = -5

**5. Draw the graph of the equation 4x + 3y + 6 = 0. From the graph, find:**

**(i) y _{1}, the value of y, when x = 12**

**(ii) y _{2}, the value of y, when x = -6**

**Solution:**

Given 4x + 3y + 6 = 0

3y = -4x – 6

y = (-4x – 6)/3

If x = 0, then y = (-4 × 0 – 6)/ 3 = -6/3 = -2

If x = 3, then y = (-4 × 3 – 6)/ 3 = -12 – 6/3 = -6

If x = -3, then y = (-4 × -3 – 6)/ 3 = 12 – 6/3 = 2

The points are

X |
0 |
3 |
-3 |

Y |
-2 |
-6 |
2 |

Plotting these points

The value of y, when x = 12

We have the equation of the line as

y = (-4x – 6)/3

now substitute x = 12 and y = y_{1}

y_{1} = [- 4 (12) – 6]/3 = (-48 – 6)/3 = -54/3 = -18

the value of y, when x = -6

now substitute x = -6 and y = y_{2}

y_{1} = [- 4 (-6) – 6]/3 = (24 – 6)/3 = 18/3 = 6

**6. Use the table given below to draw the graph.**

**From your graph, find the values of ‘a’ and ‘b’. State a linear relation between the variables x and y.**

**Solution:**

When x = -1, y = 0 that is a = 0

When y = 5, x = 9 that is b = 9

Let y = px + q ………. (1)

Be a linear relation between x and y

Substitute x = 9 and y = 5 in the equation (1) we get

5 = 9p + q …….. (2)

Substitute x = -1 and y = 0 in the equation (1) we get

0 = -p + q …. (3)

Subtracting (3) from (2) we have

5 = 10p

p = 5/10

p = ½

from 3 we have

p = q

therefore, q = ½

thus linear relation is

y = ½ x + ½

y = (x + 1)/2

**7. Draw the graph obtained from the table below:**

**Use the graph to find the values of a, b and c. State a linear relation between the variables x and y.**

**Solution:**

When y = -1, then x = -3

a = -3

when x = -5, then y = -2

b = -2

when y = 4, then x = 7

c = 7

let y = px + q ……… (1)

be a linear relation between x and y

substitute x = -3 and y = -1 in the equation (1)

– 1 = -3p + q ………. (2)

substitute x = -5 and y = -2 in the equation (1)

-2 = -5p + q ……… (3)

Subtracting (3) from (2) we have

1 = 2p

p = ½

from (3), We have

-2 = -5p + q

-2 = -5 (½) + q

-4 = -5 + 2q

2q = 5 – 4

2q = 1

q = ½

thus, the linear relation is

y = px + q

y = ½ x + ½

y = (x + 1)/2

**8. A straight line passes through the points (2, 4) and (5, -2). Taking 1 cm = 1 unit; mark these points on a graph paper and draw the straight line through these points. If points (m, -4) and (3, n) lie on the line drawn; find the values of m and n.**

**Solution:**

The table is

X |
2 |
3 |
5 |
m |

Y |

n |
-2 |
-4 |

Plotting these points as shown in the above table, we get the following graph:

Now draw a line x = 3, parallel to y – axis to meet the line

It meets the line at y = 2

Therefore n = 2

Now draw a line y = -4 parallel to x – axis to meet the line

It meets the line at x = 6

Therefore m = 6

Thus, the value of m and n are 6 and 2 respectively

**9. Draw the graph (straight line) given by equation x – 3y = 18. If the straight-line drawn passes through the points (m, -5) and (6, n); find the values of m and n.**

**Solution:**

According to the question

x – 3y = 18

– 3y = x – 18

y = (x – 18)/3

the points are

x |

Hence, from the graph we can conclude that M = 3 AND N = 4

**10. Use the graphical method to find the value of k, if:**

**(i) (k, -3) lies on the straight line 2x + 3y = 1**

**(ii) (5, k – 2) lies on the straight line x – 2y + 1 = 0**

**Solution:**

(i) Given 2x + 3y = 1

3y = 1 – 2x

y = ( 1 – 2x)/3

the points are

x |
-1 |
2 |
5 |

Y |
1 |
-1 |
-3 |

Hence from the graph we can say k = 5

(ii) Given x – 2y + 1 = 0

2y = x + 1

y = (x + 1)/2

the points are

x |
1 |
3 |
5 |

Y |

Hence, from the graph we can say k – 2 = 3

Implies k = 5

**(2 + 5y)/3 = x/7 – 2**

**Solution:**

(x + 1)/4 = 2/3 (1 – 2y)

(x + 1)/4 = 2/3 – 4y/3

Multiply above equation on both sides we get

12

× (x + 1)/4 = 12 × 2/3 – 12 × (4y/3)

3 (x + 1) = 8 – 16y

3x + 3 = 8 – 16y

3x – 5 = – 16y

Also we have

(2 + 5y)/3 = x/7 – 2

Multiply both sides by 21 we get

21 × (2 + 5y)/3 = 21 × x/7 – 21 × 2

7(2 + 5y) = 3x – 42

14 + 35y = 3x – 42

3x = 14 + 35 y + 42

3x = 56 + 35y

C.P = S.P = Rs.200

(ii)(a) On article 30,

C.P = Rs.140 and S.P. = 120

Therefore Loss = 140 – 120 = Rs.20

(b) On article 60,

C.P.=Rs.230 and S.P.= Rs.240

Therefore Profit = 240 – 230 = Rs.10

**10. Find graphically, the vertices of the triangle whose sides have the equations 2y – x = 8; 5y – x = 14 and y – 2x = 1 respectively. Take 1 cm = 1 unit on both the axes.**

**Solution:**

Given 2y – x = 8

y = (8 + x)/2

the table of 2y – x = 8 is

X |
-6 |
-2 |
0 |

Y |
1 |
3 |
4 |

5y – x = 14

x = 5y – 14

the table of x = 5y – 14 is

X |
-9 |
-4 |
1 |

Y |
1 |
2 |
3 |

y – 2x = 1

y = 1 + 2x

the table of y – 2x = 1 is

X |
2 |
-2 |
0 |

Y |
5 |
-3 |
1 |

Now plotting these points we get required graph

The coordinates of the vertices of the triangle = A (-4, 2), B (1, 3) and C (2, 5)
