### Access answers to Maths RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 6 Chapter 9 Linear Equations in One Variable Exercise 9A

**1. Write each of the following statements as an equation:**

**(i) 5 times a number equals 40.**

**(ii) A number increased by 8 equals 15.**

**(iii) 25 exceeds a number by 7.**

**(iv) A number exceeds 5 by 3.**

**(v) 5 subtracted from thrice a number is 16.**

**(vi) If 12 is subtracted from a number, the result is 24.**

**(vii) Twice a number subtracted from 19 is 11.**

**(viii) A number divided by 8 gives 7.**

**(ix) 3 less than 4 times a number is 17.**

**(x) 6 times a number is 5 more than the number.**

**Solution**

(i) Let required number be x

5 times a number = 5x

âˆ´ 5 times a number equals 40 can be written as 5x = 40

(ii) Let the number be x

A number increased by 8 = x + 8

âˆ´ A number increased by 8 equals 15 can be written as x + 8 = 15

(iii) Let the number be x

25 exceeds a number = 25 â€“ x

âˆ´ 25 exceeds a number by 7 can be written as 25 â€“ x = 7

(iv) Let the required number be x

A number exceeds 5 = x â€“ 5

âˆ´ A number exceeds 5 by 3 can be written as x â€“ 5 = 3

(v) Let the required number be x

Thrice a number = 3x

5 subtracted from thrice a number = 3x â€“ 5

âˆ´ 5 subtracted from thrice a number is 16 can be written as 3x â€“ 5 = 16

(vi) Let the number be x

12 subtracted from a number = x – 12

âˆ´ If 12 is subtracted from a number, the result is 24 can be written as x â€“ 12 = 24

(vii) Let the number be x

Twice a number = 2x

Twice a number subtracted from 19 = 19 â€“ 2x

âˆ´ Twice a number subtracted from 19 is 11 can be written as 19 â€“ 2x = 11

(viii) Let the number be x

A number divided by 8 = x / 8

âˆ´ A number divided by 8 gives can be written as x / 8 = 7

(ix) Let he number be x

4 times a number = 4x

3 less than 4 times a number = 4x â€“ 3

âˆ´ 3 less than 4 times a number is 17 can be written as 4x â€“ 3 = 17

(x) Let the number be x

6 times a number = 6x

5 more than the number = x + 5

âˆ´ 6 times a number is 5 more than the number can be written as 6x = x + 5

**2. Write a statement for each of the equations, give below:**

**(i) x â€“ 7 = 14**

**(ii) 2y = 18**

**(iii) 11 + 3x = 17**

**(iv) 2x â€“ 3 = 13**

**(v) 12y â€“ 30 = 6**

**(vi) 2z / 3 = 8**

**Solutions**

**(i)**The statement of equation x â€“ 7 = 14 can be written as 7 less from the number x is 14

**(ii)** The statement of equation 2y = 18 can be written as twice a number y is 18

**(iii)** The statement of equation 11 + 3x = 17 can be written as 11 increased by thrice a number x is 17

**(iv)** The statement of equation 2x â€“ 3 = 13 can be written as 3 less from twice the number x is 13

**(v)** The statement of equation 12y â€“ 30 = 6 can be written as 12 times the number y decreased by 30 is 6

**(vi)** The statement of equation 2z / 3 = 8 can be written as twice the number z divided by 3 is 8
