## 10th cbse maths solution for Exercise 3.2

(1) Form the pair of linear equations in the following problems, and find their solutions graphically.

 (i) 10 students of class X took part in a mathematics quiz. If the number of girls is 4 more than the number of boys, find the number of boys and girls who took part in the quiz. (ii) 5 pencils and 7 pens together cost Rs.50, whereas 7 pencils and 5 pens together cost Rs.46. Find the cost of one pencil and that of one pen. Solution

(2) On comparing the ratios a₁/a₂, b₁/b₂, c₁/c₂, find out whether the lines representing the following pairs of linear equations intersect at a point, are parallel or coincident.

 (i)  5 x – 4 y + 8 = 0      7 x + 6 y – 9 = 0 Solution (ii)  9 x + 3 y + 12 = 0       18 x + 6 y + 24 = 0 Solution (iii)  6 x - 3 y + 10 = 0         2 x - y + 9 = 0 Solution

(3) On comparing the ratios a₁/a₂, b₁/b₂, c₁/c₂,find out whether the following pair of linear equations are consistent or inconsistent.

 (i) 3 x + 2 y = 5      2 x - 3 y = 7 Solution (ii) 2 x - 3 y = 8      4 x - 6 y = 9 Solution (iii)  (3/2) x + (5/3) y = 7       9 x - 10 y = 14 Solution (iv)  5 x -3 y = 7       9 x - 10 y = 14 Solution (v) (4/3) x + 2 y = 8       2 x + 3 y = 12 Solution

(4) Which of the following pairs of linear equations are consistent/inconsistent? if consistent,obtain the solution graphically:

 (i) x + y = 5   2 x + 2 y = 10 Solution (ii) x - y = 8   3 x - 3 y = 16 Solution (iii)  2 x + y - 6 = 0       4 x - 2 y - 4 = 0 Solution (iv)  2 x - 2 y - 2  = 0       4 x - 4 y  - 5 = 0 Solution

(5) Half the perimeter of a rectangular garden,whose length is 4 m more its width,is 36 m. Find the dimensions of the garden.

Solution

(6) Given the linear equation 2 x + 3 y - 8 = 0,write another linear equation in two variables such that the geometrical representation of the pair so formed is:

(i) intersecting lines

(ii) Parallel lines

(iii) Coincident lines

Solution

(7) Draw the graphs of the equations x - y + 1 = 0 and 3 x + 2 y - 12 = 0. Determine the coordinates of the vertices of the triangle formed be these lines and the x-axis and shade the triangular region.
