**Question 1: Draw the graph of each of the following linear equations in two variables:**

**(i) x + y = 4 (ii) x – y = 2 (iii) -x + y = 6 **

**(iv) y = 2x (v) 3x + 5y = 15 (vi) x/2 âˆ’ y/3 = 2 **

**(vii) (xâˆ’2)/3 = y – 3 (viii) 2y = -x +1**

**Solution:**

**(i)** Given : x + y = 4

or y = 4 â€“ x,

Find values of x and y:

Putting x = 0 â‡’ y = 4

Putting x = 4 â‡’ y = 0

Graph:

Mark points (0, 4) and (4, 0) on the graph and join them.

**(ii)** Given: x â€“ y = 2

So, y = x – 2

Putting x = 0 â‡’ y = â€“ 2

Putting x = 2 â‡’ y = 0

Graph:

Mark points (0, -2) and (2, 0) on the graph and join them.

**(iii)** Given: â€“ x + y = 6

So, y = 6 + x

Putting x = 0 â‡’ y =6

Putting x = -6 â‡’ y = 0

Graph:

Mark points (0, 6) and (-6, 0) on the graph and join them.

**(iv)** Given: y = 2x

Put x = 1 â‡’ y = 2

Put x = 3 â‡’ y = 6

Graph:

Mark points (1, 2) and (3, 6) on the graph and join them.

**(v)** Given: 3x + 5y = 15

Or 5y = 15 â€“ 3x

Putting x = 0 â‡’ 5y = 15 â‡’ y =3

Putting x = 5 â‡’ 5y = 0 â‡’ y = 0

Graph:

Mark points (0, 3) and (5, 0) on the graph and join them.

**(vi)** Given: x/2 â€“ y/3 = 2

3x â€“ 2y = 12

y = (3xâ€“12)/2

Putting x = 0 â‡’ y = -6

Putting x = 4 â‡’ y = 0

Graph:

Mark points (0, -6) and (4, 0) on the graph and join them.

**(vii)** Given: (x âˆ’2)/3 = y âˆ’ 3

x – 2 = 3(y – 3)

x â€“ 2 = 3y â€“ 9

x = 3y â€“ 7

Now, put x = 5 in x = 3y â€“ 7

y = 4

Putting x = 8 in x = 3y â€“ 7,

y = 5

Graph:

Mark points (5, 4) and (8, 5) on the graph and join them.

**(viii)** Given: 2y = â€“ x +1

2y = 1 â€“ x

Now, putting x = 1 in 2y = 1 â€“ x, we get;

y = 0

Again, putting x = 5 in 2y = 1 â€“ x, we get;

y = -2

Graph:

Mark points (1, 0) and (5, -2) on the graph and join them.

**Question 2: Give the equations of two lines passing through (3, 12). How many more such lines are there, and why?**

**Solution:**

Since a = 3 and b = 12 is the solution of required equations. So we have to find the set of any two equations which satisfy this point.

Consider 4a â€“ b = 0 and 3a â€“ b + 3 = 0 set of lines which are passing through (3, 12).

We know, infinite lines can be pass through a point.

So, there are infinite lines passing through (3, 12).

** Question 3: A three-wheeler scooter charges Rs 15 for first kilometer and Rs 8 each for every subsequent kilometer. For a distance of x km, an amount of Rs y is paid. Write the linear equation representing the above information.**

**Solution:**

Let, total fare for covering the distance of â€˜xâ€™ km is given by Rs y

As per the given statement;

y = 15 + 8(x â€“ 1)

y = 15 + 8x â€“ 8

y = 8x + 7

Above equation represents the linear equation for the given information.

**Question 4: A lending library has a fixed charge for the first three days and an additional charge for each day thereafter. Aarushi paid Rs 27 for a book kept for seven days. If fixed charges are Rs x and per day charges are Rs y. Write the linear equation representing the above information.**

**Solution:**

Aarushi paid Rs 27, of which Rs. x for the first three days and Rs. y per day for 4 more days is given by

x + (7 â€“ 3) y = 27

x + 4y = 27

Above equation represents the linear equation for the given information.

**Question 5: A number is 27 more than the number obtained by reversing its digits. lf its unitâ€™s and tenâ€™s digit are x and y respectively, write the linear equation representing the statement.**

**Solution:**

Given: The original number is 27 more than the number obtained by reversing its digits

The given number is in the form of 10y + x.

Number produced by reversing the digits of the number is 10x + y.

As per statement:

10y + x = 10x + y + 27

10y â€“ y + x â€“ 10x = 27

9y â€“ 9x = 27

9 (y â€“ x) = 27

y â€“ x = 3

x â€“ y + 3 = 0

Above equation represents the required linear equation.

**Question 6: The Sum of a two digit number and the number obtained by reversing the order of its digits is 121. If units and tenâ€™s digit of the number are x and y respectively, then write the linear equation representing the above statement.**

**Solution:**

As per the statement given, the number is 10y + x.

On reversing the digits of the number, we get, 10x + y

Sum of the two numbers is 121. (Given)

10y + x + 10x + y = 121

11x + 11y = 121

x + y = 11

Which represents the required linear equation.

**Question 7: Plot the Points (3, 5) and (-1, 3) on a graph paper and verify that the straight line passing through the points, also passes through the point (1, 4).**

**Solution**:

Plot points (3, 5), (-1, 3) and (1, 4) on a graph.

Let A(1, 4), B(3, 5) and C(-1, 3)

From above graph, we can see that, Point A (1, 4) is already plotted on the graph, and a point of intersection of two intersecting lines.

Hence, it is proved that the straight line passing through (3, 5) and (-1, 3) and also passes through A (1, 4).

**Question 8: From the choices given below, choose the equations whose graph is given in figure.**

**(i) y = x (ii) x + y = 0 (iii) y = 2x (iv) 2 + 3y = 7x**

** Solution:**

From graph, co-ordinates (1, -1) and (-1, 1) are solutions of one of the equations.

We will put the value of all the co-ordinates in each equation and check which equation satisfy them.

**(i)** y = x

Put x = 1 and y = -1 ,

Thus, 1 â‰ -1

L.H.S â‰ R.H.S

Putting x = -1 and y = 1 ,

-1 â‰ 1

L.H.S â‰ R.H.S

Therefore, y = x does not represent the graph in the given figure.

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

Putting x = 1 and y = -1 ,

â‡’ 1 + (-1) = 0

â‡’ 0 = 0

L.H.S = R.H.S

Putting x = -1 and y = 1 ,

(-1) + 1 = 0

0 = 0

L.H.S = R.H.S

Thus, the given solutions satisfy this equation.

**(iii)** y = 2x

Putting x = 1 and y = -1

-1 = 2 (Not True)

Putting x = -1 and y = 1

1 = -2 (Not True)

Thus, the given solutions does not satisfy this equation.

**(iv)** 2 + 3y = 7x

Putting x = 1 and y = -1

2 – 3 = 7

-1 = 7 (Not true)

Putting x = -1 and y = 1

2 + 3 = -7

5 = -7 (Not True)

Thus, the given solutions does not satisfy this equation.

**Question 9: From the choices given below, choose the equation whose graph is given fig:**

**(i) y = x + 2 (ii) y = x â€“ 2 (iii)y = â€“ x + 2 (iv) x + 2y = 6**

**Solution:**

Given: (-1, 3) and (2, 0) are the solution of one of the following given equations.

Check which equation satisfy both the points.

**(i)** y = x + 2

Putting, x = -1 and y = 3

3 â‰ â€“ 1 + 2

L.H.S â‰ R.H.S

Putting, x = 2 and y = 0

0 â‰ 4

L.H.S â‰ R.H.S

Thus, this solution does not satisfy the given equation.

**(ii)** y = x â€“ 2

Putting, x = -1 and y = 3

3 â‰ â€“ 1 â€“ 2

L.H.S â‰ R.H.S

Putting, x = 2 and y = 0

0 = 0

L.H.S = R.H.S

Thus, the given solutions does not satisfy this equation completely.

**(iii)** y = â€“ x + 2

Putting, x = â€“ 1 and y = 3

3 = â€“ ( â€“ 1 ) + 2

L.H.S = R.H.S

Putting x = 2 and y = 0

0 = -2 + 2

0 = 0

L.H.S = R.H.S

Therefore, (0, 2) and (-1,3) satisfy this equation.

Hence, this is the graph for equation y = -x + 2 .

**Question 10 : If the point (2, -2) lies on the graph of linear equation, 5x + ky = 4, find the value of k.**

**Solution:**

Point (2,-2) lies on the given linear equation, which implies (2, -2) satisfy this equation 5x + ky = 4.

Now, putting x = 2 and y = -2 in 5x + ky = 4

5 Ã— 2 + ( -2 ) k = 4

10 â€“ 2k = 4

2k = 10 â€“ 4

2k = 6

k = 6/2 = 3

The value of k is 3.
