**Exercise 3F Page No: 155**

**Question 1:**

**Write the number of solutions of the following pair of linear equations: **

**x + 2y â€“ 8 = 0, 2x + 4y = 16. **

**Solution:**

**Question 2:**

**Find the value of k for which the following pair of linear equations have infinitely many solutions:**

**2x + 3y = 7, (k â€“ 1) x + (k + 2) y = 3k.**

**Solution:**

2x + 3y = 7

(k â€“ 1)x + (k + 2)y = 3k

These given equations are in the form:

a_{1}x + b_{1}y + c_{1} = 0 and

a_{2}x + b_{2}y + c_{2} = 0

where,

**Question 3:**

**For what value of k does the following pair of linear equations have infinitely many solutions?**

**10x + 5y â€“ (k â€“ 5) = 0 and 20x + 10y â€“ k = 0.**

**Solution:**

10x + 5y â€“ (k â€“ 5) = 0 and 20x + 10y â€“ k = 0.

These given equations are in the form:

a_{1}x + b_{1}y + c_{1} = 0 and

a_{2}x + b_{2}y + c_{2} = 0

where,

**Question 4:**

**For what value of k will the following pair of linear equations have no solution?**

**2x + 3y = 9, 6x + (k â€“ 2) y = (3k â€“ 2). **

**Solution:**

2x + 3y = 9, 6x + (k â€“ 2) y = (3k â€“ 2).

These given equations are in the form:

a_{1}x + b_{1}y + c_{1} = 0 and

a_{2}x + b_{2}y + c_{2} = 0

where,

**Question 5:**

**Write the number of solutions of the following pair of linear equations:**

**x + 3y â€“ 4 = 0 and 2x + 6y â€“ 7 = 0.**

**Solution**:

x + 3y â€“ 4 = 0 and 2x + 6y â€“ 7 = 0.

These given equations are in the form:

a_{1}x + b_{1}y + c_{1} = 0 and

a_{2}x + b_{2}y + c_{2} = 0

where,

**Question 6:**

**Write the value of k for which the system of equations 3x + ky = 0, 2x â€“ y = 0 has a unique solution.**

**Solution:**

**Question 7:**

**The difference between two numbers is 5 and the difference between their squares is 65. Find the numbers.**

**Solution:**

Let x be the first number and y be second number.

x â€“ y = 5

x^2 â€“ y^2 = 65 â€¦(2)

Now, by dividing (2) by (1) we get:

x + y = 13 …(3)

On adding (1) and (2) we get

2x = 18

or x = 9

From (3): 9 + y = 13

or y = 4

Two numbers are 4 and 9.

**Question 8:**

**The cost of 5 pens and 8 pencils is f 120, while the cost of 8 pens and 5 pencils is â‚¹ 153. Find the cost of 1 pen and that of 1 pencil.**

**Solution:**

Let the cost of one pen is â‚¹ x and cost of one pencil is â‚¹ y, then

As per statement,

5x + 8y = 120 â€¦(1)

8x + 5y = 153 â€¦(2)

Adding both the equations, we get

13x + 13y = 273

x + y = 21 â€¦(3)

On subtracting (1) from (2),

3x â€“ 3y = 33

x â€“ y = 11 â€¦â€¦.(iv)

Again,

Adding (3) and (iv),

2x = 32 or x = 16

On subtracting,

2y = 10 or y = 5

Answer:

Cost of 1 pen = â‚¹ 16

and cost of 1 pencil = â‚¹ 5

**Question 9:**

**The sum of two numbers is 80. The larger number exceeds four times the smaller one by 5. Find the numbers.**

**Solution:**

Let x be the first number and y be the second number.

As per statement,

x + y = 80 and

x – 4y = 5

on subtracting both the equations, we get

y = 15

From (1): x + 15 = 80

x = 80 – 15 = 65

Answer:

Required numbers are 15 and 65.

**Question 10:**

**A number consists of two digits whose sum is 10. If 18 is subtracted from the number, its digits are reversed. Find the number.**

**Solution:**

Let oneâ€™s digit of a two digits number is x and tenâ€™s digit is y, then the number is x + 10y

By reversing its digits Oneâ€™s digit = y and tenâ€™s digit = x

Then the number is y + 10x

As per statement,

x + y = 10 â€¦(1)

And,

x + 10y â€“ 18 = y + 10x

x+ 10y â€“ y â€“ 10x = 18

-9x + 9y = 18

x â€“ y = -2 (Dividing by -9) â€¦..(2)

Adding (1) and (2), we have

2x = 8 or x = 4

From (1): 4 + y = 10

y = 6

Answer:

Number = x + 10y = 4 + 10( 6) = 64
