## Exercise 9A PaGE no: 138

**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´ 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

(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

**12. Reena is six year older than her brother Ajay. If sum of their ages is 28 years, what are their present ages.**

**Solution**

Let x years be the present age of Ajay

Reena is 6 years older than Ajay shows (x + 6) years

According to the question

x + (x + 6) = 28

2x + 6 = 28

Subtracting -6 from both sides

2x + 6 â€“ 6 = 28 â€“ 6

2x = 22

Dividing both sides by 2

2x / 2 = 22 / 2

x = 11

x = 11 years and (x + 6) = 11 + 6 = 17 years

âˆ´ Present age of Ajay is 11 years and Reenaâ€™s age is 17 years

### Chapter Brief of RS Aggarwal Solutions for Class 6 Maths Chapter 9 – Linear Equations in One Variable

A linear equation is an equation in which the highest power of the variables is 1. Variables mentioned in terms of any alphabets such as a, b, c, x, y. There are four rules to solve an equation

(i) We can add the same number to both sides of an equation

(ii) We can subtract the same number from both sides of an equation

(iii) We can multiply both sides of an equation by the same non zero number

(iv) We can divide both sides of an equation by the same non zero number

We can solve linear equations easily by using these rules. They are used for comparing rates of pay, budgeting, making predictions.
