### Samacheer Kalvi 8th Maths Term 2 Chapter 2: Algebra Book Exercise 2.1 Questions and Solutions

**Question 1: Find x: (3x – 2) / 4 – (x – 3) / 5 = -1**

**Solution: **

(3x – 2) / 4 – (x – 3) / 5 = -1

Taking LCM of 4 and 5, 20 is obtained.

[3x * 5 – 2 * 5 – x * 4 – (-3 * 4)] / 20 = -1 [15x – 10 – 4x – (-12)] / 20 = -1 [15x – 10 – 4x + 12] / 20 = -1 [11x + 2] / 20 = -111x + 2 = -20

11x = -20 – 2

11x = -22

x = -2

**Question 2: Solve for m: [m + 9] / [3m + 15] = 5 / 3**

**Solution: **

3 (m + 9) = 5 (3m + 15)

3m + 27 = 15m + 75

3m – 15m = 75 – 27

-12m = 48

m = 48 / -12

m = -4

### Samacheer Kalvi 8th Maths Term 2 Chapter 2: Algebra Book Exercise 2.2 Questions and Solutions

**Question 1: One number is seven times another. If their difference is 18, find the numbers.**

**Solution: **

Let the numbers be x and y.

It is given that one number is seven times another and their difference is 18.

x = 7y —- (1)

x – y = 18 —- (2)

Substitute (1) in (2),

7y – y = 18

6y = 18

y = 18 / 6

y = 3

Substitute y = 3 in (1),

x = 7 * 3

x = 21

The numbers are 3 and 21.

**Question 2: The sum of three consecutive odd numbers is 75. Which is the largest among them?**

**Solution:**

The sum of three consecutive odd numbers is 75.

Odd numbers are 1, 3, 5, 7, ………

The difference between 2 consecutive odd numbers is always 2.

If the first odd number is x, then the second odd number would be x + 2, x + 4 and so on.

So,

x + x + 2 + x + 4 = 75

3x + 6 = 75

3x = 75 – 6

3x = 69

x = 69 / 3

x = 23

The odd numbers are 23, 23 + 2, 23 + 4.

So, they are 23, 25, 27.

The largest number is 27.

**Question 1: Find the quadrants without plotting the points on a graph sheet. (3, − 4), (5, 7), (2, 0), ( − 3, − 5), (4, − 3), ( − 7, 2), ( − 8, 0), (0, 10), ( − 9, 50).**

**Solution:**

(3, -4) | (5, 7) | (2, 0) | (-3, -5) | (4, -3) | (-7, 2) | (-8, 0) | (0, 10) | (-9, 50) |

IV | I | x-axis | III | IV | II | x-axis | y-axis | II |

**Question 2: Plot the following points in a graph sheet. A (5, 2), B (− 7, −3), C (−2, 4), D (−1, − 1), E (0, −5), F (2, 0), G (7, −4), H (−4, 0), I (2, 3), J (8, −4), K (0, 7).**

### Samacheer Kalvi 8th Maths Term 2 Chapter 2: Algebra Book Exercise 2.4 Questions and Solutions

**Question 1: If the points P(5, 3) Q(−3, 3) R(−3, −4) and S form a rectangle, then find the coordinate of S.**

**Solution:**

On plotting the points on the graph,

Steps:

1] Plot points P, Q, R on the graph.

2] As it is a rectangle, RS will be parallel to the PQ and QR also parallel to PS.

3] S lies on the straight line from R parallel to the x-axis and straight line from P parallel to the y-axis.

4] Hence, S (5, -4).

**Question 2: Draw the graph of the following equations **

**(i) x = −7 **

**(ii) y = 6**

**Solution:**

### Samacheer Kalvi 8th Maths Term 2 Chapter 2: Algebra Book Exercise 2.5 Questions and Solutions

**Question 1: Two equal sides of an isosceles triangle are 5y − 2 and 4y + 9 units. The third side is 2y + 5 units. Find ῾y᾿ and the perimeter of the triangle.**

**Solution:**

Given that 5y – 2 and 4y + 9 are the equal sides of an isosceles triangle.

The 2 sides are equal.

5y – 2 = 4y + 9

5y – 4y = 9 + 2

y = 11

First side = 5y – 2 = 5 * 11 – 2 = 55 – 2 = 53

Second side = 4y + 9 = 4 * 11 + 9 = 44 + 9 = 53

Third side = 2y + 5 = 2 * 11 + 5 = 22 + 5 = 27

Perimeter is the sum of all 3 sides

P = 53 + 53 + 27 = 133

**Question 2: Draw a graph for the following data:**

**Does the graph represent a linear relation?**

**Solution:**

It is not a linear relation.
