= 5x + 900 -10x = 500

= – 5x + 900 = 500

Transposing – 5x to RHS and it becomes 5x and 500 to LHS it becomes -500

= 900 – 500 = 5x

= 400 = 5x

Multiplying both side by (1/5)

= 400 × (1/5) = 5x × (1/5)

= 80 = x

∴the number of ₹ 10 note be (90 –x) = (90 – 80) = 10 notes

17. Sumitra has ₹ 34 in 50-paise and 25-paise coins. If the number of 25-paise coins is twice the number of 50-paise coins, how many coins of each kind does she have?Solution:-From the question,Sumitra has ₹34 = 3400 paise

Let 50 paise coins be x

And 25 paise coins be 2x

Then,

= 50x + 25 (2x) = 3400

= 50x + 50x = 3400

= 100x = 3400

Multiplying both side by (1/100).

= 100x × (1/100) = (3400) × (1/100)

= x = 34

∴The number of 50 paise coins is 34

The number of 25 paise coins is 2x = 2 × 34 = 68

## Exercise 7c

Mark against the correct answer in each of the following:

1. If 5x – (3/4) = 2x – (2/3), then x =?(a)(1/12) (b)(1/4) (C) 36 (d) (1/36)Solution:-(d) (1/36)

Because,

Transposing – (3/4) to RHS and it becomes (3/4) and 2x to LHS it becomes -2x

= 5x – 2x = – (2/3) + (3/4)

= 3x = (-8+9)/12

= 3x = 1/12

Multiplying both side by (1/3).

= 3x × (1/3) = (1/12) × (1/3)

= x = 1/36

2. If 2z + (8/3) = (1/4) z + 5, then z =?(a)3 (b)3 (c)(2/5) (d)(4/3)Solution:-(d)(4/3)

Because,

Transposing (8/3) to RHS and it becomes – (8/3) and (1/4)z to LHS it becomes –(1/4)z

= 2z – (1/4)z = 5 – (8/3)

= [(8-1)/4]z = (15-8)/3

= (7/4)z = 7/3

Multiplying both side by (4/7).

= (7/4)z × (4/7) = ((7/3) × (4/7)

= x = 4/3

3. If (2n + 5) = 3(3n – 10), then z =?(a)5 (b)3 (c)(2/5) (d)(2/5)Solution:-(a)5

Because,

= 2n + 5 = 9n – 30

Transposing 2n to RHS and it becomes – 2n and -30 to LHS it becomes 30

= 30 + 5 = 9n -2n

= 35 = 7n

Multiplying both side by (1/7).

= 35 × (1/7) = 7n × (1/7)

= 5 = n

4. If (x-1) / (x +1) = (7/9), then x =?(a)6 (b)7 (c)8 (d)10Solution:-(c)8

Because,

= (x-1) / (x +1) = (7/9)

By cross multiplication,

= 9 × (x-1) = 7 × (x +1)

= 9x -9 = 7x + 7

= 9x -7x = 9 + 7

= 2x = 16

= x = (16/2)

= x = 8

5. If 8(2x – 5) – 6 (3x – 7) = 1, then x =?(a)2 (b)3 (c)1/2 (d)(1/3)Solution:-(c)1/2

Because,

= 8(2x – 5) – 6 (3x – 7) = 1

= 16x -40 – 18x + 42 = 1

= -2x +2 = 1

= 2-1 = 2x

= 1 = 2x

= x = (1/2)

6. If (x/2)-1 = (x/3) +4, then x=?(a)8 (b)16 (c)24 (d)30Solution:-(d)30

Because,

= (x/2)-1 = (x/3) +4

= (x/2) – (x/3) = 4 +1

= (3x-2x)/6 = 5

= x/6 =5

= x = 30

7. If (2x-1)/3 = ((x-2)/3) + 1, then x =?(a)2 (b)4 (c)6 (d)8Solution:-(a)2

Because,

= (2x-1)/3 = ((x-2)/3) + 1

= [(2x-1)/3)] – [(x-2)/3)] = 1

= [(2x -1) – (x -2)] / 3 = 1

= (2x – 1 – x +2)/ 3 = 1

= x +1 = 3

= x = 3-1

= x = 2

8. The sum of two consecutive whole numbers is 53. The smaller number is (a)25 (b)26 (c)29 (d)23Solution:-(b)26

Because,

Let the two consecutive whole numbers be x and (x +1)

= x + (x+1) = 53

= x + x + 1 = 53

= 2x + 1 = 53

= 2x = 53 – 1

= 2x = 52

= x = 52/2

= x = 26

9. The sum of two consecutive even number is 86. The larger of two is(a)46 (b)36 (c)38 (d)44Solution:-(d)44

Because,

Let the two consecutive even numbers be x and (x +2)

= x + (x+2) = 86

= x + x + 2 = 86

= 2x + 2 = 86

= 2x = 86 – 2

= 2x = 84

= x = 84/2

= x = 42

The larger number is (x +1) = 42 +2 = 44
