### RBSE Maths Chapter 11: Exercise 11.1 Textbook Important Questions and Solutions

Question 1: Solve the following problems.

[i] 6x + 3 = 4x + 11

[ii] 3 (x + 5) = 4x + 9

[iii] 3x + 2 (x + 3) = 21

[iv] [x + 1] /  + [x + 2] /  = [2x – 5] /  + 9

[v] [3x – 2] /  = 4 – {[x + 2] / }

[vi] [x + 2] /  + [x + 4] /  = [x + 6] /  + [x + 8] / 

[vii] 0.6x + 0.25x = 0.45x + 1.2

[viii] 2.5x – 7 = 0.5x + 13

[ix] [7x + 4] / [x + 2] = [- 4 / 3]

[x] [4x + 8] / [5x + 8] = 5 / 6

Solution:

[i] 6x + 3 = 4x + 11

Subtract 3 from both sides

6x + 3 – 3 = 4x + 11 – 3

6x = 4x + 8

Subtract 4x from both sides

6x – 4x = 4x + 8 – 4x

2x = 8

Divide both sides by 2

{2x} / {2} = {8} / {2}

x = 4

[ii] 3 (x + 5) = 4x + 9

Subtract 15 from both sides

3x + 15 – 15 = 4x + 9 – 15

3x = 4x – 6

Subtract 4x from both sides

3x – 4x = 4x – 6 – 4x

-x = -6

x = 6

[iii] 3x + 2 (x + 3) = 21

3x + 2x + 6 = 21

Add similar elements 3x + 2x = 5x

5x + 6 = 21

Subtract 6 from both sides

5x + 6 – 6 = 21 – 6

5x = 15

x = 15 / 5

x = 3

Question 1: The numerator of a rational number is less than its denominator by 3. If 5 is added to both i.e. its numerator and its denominator then it becomes ¾. Find the numbers.

Solution:

Let the denominator of rational number be x.

Then, according to the question, the numerator is = x – 3.

Hence, the rational number = [x – 3] / x.

Now, 5 is added to numerator and denominator,

[x – 3 + 5] / [x + 5] = ¾

[x + 2] / [x + 5] = ¾

4 * [x + 2] = 3 * [x + 5]

4x + 8 = 3x + 15

4x – 3x = 15 – 8

x = 7

Denominator = 7

Numerator = 7 – 3 = 4

Required rational number = 4 / 7.

Question 2: What should be added in the numerator and denominator of a fraction [5 / 13] so that the fraction becomes 3 / 5.

Solution:

Let the number be ‘x’.

According to the question,

[x + 5] / [x + 13] = 3 / 5

5 * [x + 5] = 3 * [x + 13]

5x + 25 = 3x + 39

5x – 3x = 39 – 25

2x = 14

x = 14 / 2

x = 7

The number that has to be added in the numerator and denominator of a fraction [5 / 13] so that the fraction becomes 3 / 5 is 7.

Question 3: What should be subtracted from the numerator and denominator of the fraction [15 / 19] so that the fraction becomes 5 / 7.

Solution:

Let the number be ‘x’.

[15 – x] / [19 – x] = 5 / 7

7 * [15 – x] = 5 * [19 – x]

105 – 7x = 95 – 5x

105 – 95 = 7x – 5x

10 = 2x

x = 10 / 2

x = 5

The number that has to be subtracted from the numerator and denominator of the fraction [15 / 19] so that the fraction becomes 5 / 7 is 5.

Question 4: Ramesh distributed his capital, half of the capital to his wife, one third to his son and remaining 50,000/- to his daughter. Find the total amount of his capital.

Solution:

Let ‘x’ be the total capital.

According to the question,

Money given to wife = x / 2

Money given to son = x / 3

Money given to daughter = Rs 50,000

From question,

[x / 2] + [x / 3] + 50,000 = x

Taking least common multiplier we get,

3x + 2x + [50,000 * 6] = 6 * x

5x + 3,00,000 = 6x

6x – 5x = 3,00,000

x = 3,00,000

The required capital is Rs 3,00,000.

Question 5: 5 times of any number is 48 more than its double. Find the numbers.

Solution:

Let the required number be x.

According to the question,

Five times of number = 5x

Twice [double] the number = 2x

5x = 2x + 48

5x – 2x = 48

3x = 48

x = 48 / 3

x = 16

The required number is 16.

Question 6: Distribute 45 in this way that one part is 7 less than three times of another part.

Solution:

Let one part be x.

According to the question second part = 45 – x.

The question says that one part is 7 less than three times another part. If one part is 45 – x, then the second part is given by

x = 3 * (45 – x) – 7

x = 135 – 3x – 7

3x + x = 135 – 7

4x = 128

x = 128 / 4

x = 32

One part = 32

Another part = 45 – x = 45 – 32 = 13.

The required parts are 32 and 13.

Question 7: Age of Ranu is three times of Sujal’s age. After 4 years, the sum of their age will be 40 years. Find their present age.

Solution:

Let x years be the age of Sujal.

Then according to the question, 3x will be the age of Ranu.

After 4 years,

Age of Sujal = (x + 4) years

Age of Ranu = (3x + 4) years

(x + 4) + (3x + 4) = 40

x + 4 + 3x + 4 = 40

4x + 8 = 40

4x = 40 – 8

4x = 32

x = 32 / 4

x = 8

The present age of Sujal is 8 years and Ranu is 3 * x = 3 * 8 = 24 years.

Question 8: The length of a rectangle exceeds its breadth by 6 meters, If its perimeter is 64 meters then find its length and breadth.

Solution:

Let x meter be the breadth of the rectangle.

Then, the length of rectangle = (x + 6) meters.

Perimeter of a rectangle = 2 (length + breadth)

= 2 (x + (x + 6))

= 2 * (2x + 6) meters

According to the question,

2 * (2x + 6) = 64

4x + 12 = 64

4x = 64 – 12

4x = 52

x = 13

The breadth of rectangle = 13 meters.

The length of rectangle = (13 + 6) meters = 19 meters.

Question 9: The sum of the digits of a two-digit number is 12. The new number formed by reversing the digit is greater than the original number by 54. Find the value of the original number.

Solution:

Let the one’s digit be x.

Since the sum of digits is 12, the tens digit = (12 – x) . . . . (i)

Number = 10 * tens digit + ones digit

= 10 * (12 – x)+ x

= 120 – 10x + x

= 120 – 9x

Now, if the digits are reversed, then one’s digit = 12 – x and ten’s digit = x.

New Number = 10 * tens digit + ones digit

= 10 * (x) + 12 – x

= 10x + 12 – x

= 10x – x + 12

= 9x + 12

According to the question,

9x + 12 = 120 – 9x + 54

9x + 12 = 174 – 9x

9x + 9x = 174 – 12

18x = 162

x = 162 / 18

x = 9

One’s digit = 9 and ten’s digit = 12 – 9 = 3

The required number = 39.

Question 10: In a two-digit number, the first digit is four times of the second digit. Adding this to the new number formed by reversing the digits, 110 is obtained. Find the numbers.

Solution:

Let the ones digit be x.

The ten’s digit is 4x.

Number = 10 * tens digit + ones digit

= 10 * (4x) + x

= 40x + x

= 41x

Now the digits are reversed, one’s digit = 4x, and ten’s digit = x

Number = 10 x tens digit + ones digit

= 10 * x + 4x

= 10x + 4x

= 14x

According to the question,

41x + 14x = 110

55x = 110

x = 110 / 55

x = 2

Hence, the one’s digit = 2 and ten’s digit = 4 * 2 = 8

Number = 82

Again, if one’s digit is 4 times of tens digit, then number = 28

Hence, the required can be either 82 or 28.

2x = 7 + 3

2x = 10

x = 5

Question 4: Solve 2x – 3 = x + 2

Solution:

2x – 3 = x + 2

2x – x = 2 + 3

x = 5

Question 5: Solve the equation [x / 3] + 1 = [7 / 15]

Solution:

[x / 3] + 1 = [7 / 15] [x / 3] = [7 / 15] – 1

[x / 3] = [7 – 15] / 15

[x / 3] = [-8 / 15]

x = 3 * [-8 / 15]

x = [-24 / 15]

x = [-8 / 5]

Question 6: Check the equation [15 / 4] – 7x = 9 at x = [-3 /4].

Solution:

[15 / 4] – 7 * [-3 / 4] = 9

[15 / 4] + [21 / 4] = 9

[36 / 4] = 9

9 = 9

LHS = RHS

Hence, the equation [15 / 4] – 7x = 9 at x = [-3 /4] is valid.

Question 7: Solve the equation 4x – [2 + (x – (3 – x))] = 3x + 6

Solution:

4x – [2 + x – 3 + x] = 3x + 6

4x – 2 – x + 3 – x = 3x + 6

2x + 1 = 3x + 6

2x = 3x + 6 – 1

2x – 3x = 6 – 1

-x = 5

x = -5

Question 8: √3x – 2 = 2√3 + 4

Solution:

√3x – 2 = 2√3 + 4

√3x = 2√3 + 4 + 2

√3x = 2√3 + 6

x = [2√3 + 6] / [√3]

x = 2√3 [1 + √3] / √3

x = 2 [1+ √3]

Question 9: Solve the equation [8x + 3] / [2x – 4] = [4x / x – 5]

Solution: Question 10: A bag contains 15 coins of two-rupee and five-rupee. The total amount of the coins is Rs 45. How many coins of each are there in the bag?

Solution:

Let the two-rupee coins in the bag be ‘x’.

Then the 5-rupee coins = 15 – x

Rs 2x is the value of x two rupee coins.

Rs 5(15 – x) is the value of 5-rupee coins.

According to the question,

2x + 5 * (15 – x) = 45

2x + 75 – 5x = 45

2x + 75 – 45 – 5x = 0

-3x + 30 = 0

30 = 3x

x = 30 / 3

x = 10

Hence, the number of 2-rupee coins = x = 10 and number of 5-rupee coins = 15 – x = 15 – 10 = 5.

Question 11: Find the three consecutive numbers where the sum of twice of the first number, thrice of the second number and four times of the third number is 182.

Solution:

Let three consecutive numbers be x, x + 1 and x + 2.

Then according to the question 2x + 3 (x + 1) + 4 (x + 2) = 182

2x + 3x + 3 + 4x + 8 = 182

9x +11 = 182

9x = 182 – 11

9x = 171

x = 171 / 9

x = 19

Hence, the first number = 19, the second number = 19 + 1 = 20 and third number = 19 + 2 = 21.

2 * 19 + 3 (19 + 1) + 4 (19 + 2) = 182.

Question 12: Ramesh’s father is 27 years older than Ramesh. After 5 years, the ratio of ages of Ramesh and his father would be 2:3. Find their present age.

Solution:

Let the age of Ramesh be x years.

Then father’s age = (x + 27) years

After 5 years, the age of Ramesh will be = (x + 5) years

After 5 years, the age of father = x + 27 + 5 = (x + 32) years

According to the question

[x + 5] / [x + 32] = [2 / 3]

3 * [x + 5] = 2 * [x + 32]

3x + 15 = 2x + 64

3x – 2x = 64 – 15

x = 49

Ramesh’s age x = 49 years and his father’s age is x + 27 = 49 + 27 = 76 years.

Question 13: Solve the equation [6x2 + 13x – 4] / [2x + 5] = [12x2 + 5x – 2] / [4x + 3].

Solution: Question 14: The denominator of a rational number exceeds its numerator by 5. If 2 is added to its numerator and denominator then we get 1 / 2. Find that rational number.

Solution:

Let the numerator be ‘x’.

According to the question, the denominator of a rational number exceeds its numerator by 5, hence the rational number is [x] / [x + 5].

Now by adding 2 to both numerator and denominator,

[x + 2] / [x + 5 + 2] = [1 / 2] [x + 2] / [x + 7] = [1 / 2]

2 * [x + 2] = 1 * [x + 7]

2x + 4 = x + 7

2x – x = 7 – 4

x = 3

Hence, the numerator = 3, denominator = x + 5 = 3 + 5 = 8

The required rational number = 3 / 8.

Question 15: The length of a rectangle exceeds its breadth by 3 meters. If its perimeter is 54 meters then find its length and breadth.

Solution:

Let the breadth of the rectangle be ‘x’ meters.

Length of rectangle = (3 + x) meters.

Perimeter = 2 (length + breadth)

Perimeter = 2 * ((3 + x) + x} = 2 * (2x + 3) meters

According to the question,

2 * (2x + 3) = 54

2 * 2x + 3 * 2x = 54

4x + 6 = 54

4x = 54 – 6

4x = 48

x = 48 / 4

x = 12

The breadth of rectangle = 12 meters and the length of rectangle = (3 + x ) = (3 + 12) = 15 meters.

Question 16: Find the three consecutive multiples of 11, whose sum is 363.

Solution:

Let the three consecutive multiples of 11 be 11x, 11* (x + 1) and 11 * (x + 2), respectively.

According to the question,

11x + 11* (x + 1) + 11* (x + 2) = 363

11x + 11x + 11 + 11x + 22 = 363

33x + 33 = 363

33x = 363 – 33

33x = 330

x = 330 / 33

x = 10

The three consecutive multiple of 11 are,

11 * x = 11* 10 = 110

11 * (x + 1) = 11 * (10 + 1) = 11 x 11 = 121

11 * (x + 2) = 11 * (10 + 2) = 11 x 12 = 132

The three consecutive multiple numbers of 11 are 110,121 and 132.

[iv] [x + 5] / [x] = 2 / 3

[v] 2x + 5 = 3x + 7

Solution:

[i] [2x] / [x + 6] = 1

2x = 1 * [x + 6]

2x = x + 6

2x – x = 6

x = 6

[ii] 10 = x + 3

10 – 3 = x

7 = x

[iii] 16 = 7x – 9

16 + 9 = 7x

25 / 7 = x

[iv] [x + 5] / [x] = 2 / 3

3 * [x + 5] = x * 2

3x + 15 = 2x
