-1 < 3 – 2x and 3 – 2xÂ â‰¤Â 7

2x < 4 and -2xÂ â‰¤Â 4

x < 2 and xÂ â‰¥Â -2

The solution set = {-2Â â‰¤Â x < 2, xÂ âˆˆÂ R}

-3 < x – 2 and x – 2Â â‰¤Â 9 – 2x

-1 < x and 3xÂ â‰¤Â 11

-1 < xÂ â‰¤Â 11/3

As, xÂ âˆˆÂ N

Hence, the solution set = {1, 2, 3}

Solution:

Given inequation,

Hence, the solution set is {x âˆˆ N: -2 â‰¤ x â‰¤ 3.75}

And as x âˆˆ N, the values of x are 1, 2, 3

The required graph of the solution on the number line is as below:

9. Given xÂ âˆˆ {real numbers}, find the range of values of x for which -5Â â‰¤Â 2x – 3 < x + 2 and represent it on a real number line.

Solution:

Given inequation,

-5Â â‰¤Â 2x – 3 < x + 2

-5Â â‰¤Â 2x – 3 and 2x – 3 < x + 2

-2Â â‰¤Â 2x and x < 5

-1Â â‰¤Â x and x < 5

Thus, the required range is -1Â â‰¤Â x < 5.

And the required graph is as below:

10. If 5x – 3Â â‰¤Â 5 + 3xÂ â‰¤Â 4x + 2, express it as aÂ â‰¤Â xÂ â‰¤Â b and then state the values of a and b.

Given inequation,

5x – 3Â â‰¤Â 5 + 3xÂ â‰¤Â 4x + 2

5x – 3Â â‰¤Â 5 + 3x and 5 + 3xÂ â‰¤Â 4x + 2

2xÂ â‰¤Â 8 and -xÂ â‰¤Â -3

xÂ â‰¤Â 4 and xÂ â‰¤Â 3

Hence, 3Â â‰¤Â xÂ â‰¤Â 4.

Therefore, we have a = 3 and b = 4.

11. Solve the following inequation and graph the solution set on the number line:

2x – 3 < x + 2Â â‰¤Â 3x + 5, xÂ âˆˆÂ R.

Solution:

Given inequation,

2x – 3 < x + 2Â â‰¤Â 3x + 5

2x – 3 < x + 2 and x + 2Â â‰¤Â 3x + 5

x < 5 and -3Â â‰¤Â 2x

x < 5 and -1.5Â â‰¤Â x

So, the solution set = {-1.5Â â‰¤Â x < 5}

And the solution set be graphed on the number line as below:

12. Solve and graph the solution set of:

(i) 2x – 9 < 7 and 3x + 9Â â‰¤Â 25, xÂ âˆˆÂ R

(ii) 2x – 9Â â‰¤Â 7 and 3x + 9 > 25, xÂ âˆˆÂ I

(iii) x + 5Â â‰¥Â 4(x – 1) and 3 – 2x < -7, xÂ âˆˆ R

Solution:

(i) 2x – 9 < 7 and 3x + 9Â â‰¤Â 25

2x < 16 and 3xÂ â‰¤Â 16

x < 8 and xÂ â‰¤ 16/3

Thus, the solution set = {xÂ â‰¤Â 16/3, xÂ âˆˆÂ R}

And the required graph on number line is as below:

(ii) 2x – 9Â â‰¤ 7 and 3x + 9 > 25

2xÂ â‰¤Â 16 and 3x > 16

xÂ â‰¤Â 8 and x > 16/3

Thus, the solution set = {16/3Â < xÂ â‰¤Â 8, xÂ âˆˆÂ I} = {6, 7, 8}

And the required graph on number line is as below:

(iii) x + 5Â â‰¥Â 4(x – 1) and 3 – 2x < -7

9 â‰¥Â 3x and -2x < -10

3 â‰¥Â x and x > 5

Hence, the solution set = Empty set (as there is no cross section)

13. Solve and graph the solution set of:

(i) 3x – 2 > 19 or 3 – 2xÂ â‰¥Â -7, xÂ âˆˆÂ R

(ii) 5 > p – 1 > 2 or 7Â â‰¤Â 2p – â‰¤Â 17, pÂ âˆˆÂ R

Solution:

(i) 3x – 2 > 19 or 3 – 2xÂ â‰¥Â -7

3x > 21 or -2xÂ â‰¥Â -10

x > 7 or xÂ â‰¤Â 5

The graph of solution set of x > 7 or xÂ â‰¤Â 5 is equal to the graph of points which belong to x > 7 or xÂ â‰¤Â 5 or both.

Thus, the graph of the solution set is as below:

(ii) 5 > p – 1 > 2 or 7Â â‰¤Â 2p – 1Â â‰¤Â 17

6 > p > 3 or 8Â â‰¤Â 2pÂ â‰¤Â 18

6 > p > 3 or 4Â â‰¤Â pÂ â‰¤Â 9

Now, we have to understand that:

Graph of solution set of 6 > p > 3 or 4Â â‰¤Â pÂ â‰¤Â 9

= Graph of points which belong to 6 > p > 3 or 4Â â‰¤Â pÂ â‰¤Â 9 or both

= Graph of points which belong to 3 < pÂ â‰¤Â 9

Thus, the graph of the solution set is as below:

(ii) AÂ âˆ©Â B = {xÂ âˆˆÂ R: -2Â â‰¤Â x < 3}

And this can be represented on number line as:

B’ = {xÂ âˆˆÂ R: 3 < xÂ â‰¤Â -4}

AÂ âˆ©Â B’ = {xÂ âˆˆÂ R: 3Â â‰¤Â x < 5}

And this can be represented on number line as:

(iii) -1 < xÂ â‰¤Â 6 and -2Â â‰¤Â xÂ â‰¤Â 3

Solution:

(i) x > 3 and 0 < x < 6

Both the given inequations are true in the range where their graphs on the real number lines overlap.

And, the graphs of these inequations can be drawn as below:

x > 3

0 < x < 6

Thus, from both the graphs, it is clear that their common range is

3 < x < 6

(ii) x < 0 and -3Â â‰¤Â x < 1

Both the given inequations are true in the range where their graphs on the real number lines overlap.

And, the graphs of these inequations can be drawn as below:

And, the graphs of these inequations can be drawn as below:

-1 < xÂ â‰¤ 6

-2Â <Â xÂ â‰¤Â 3

Thus, from both the graphs, it is clear that their common range is

-1 < xÂ â‰¤Â 3

16. Illustrate the set {x: -3Â â‰¤Â x < 0 or x > 2, xÂ âˆˆÂ R} on the real number line.

Solution:

We have to understand that:

Graph of solution set of -3Â â‰¤Â x < 0 or x > 2 = Graph of points which belong to -3Â â‰¤Â x < 0 or x > 2 or both

Therefore, the required graph is as below:
