When y = 0 we have x = 3

When x = 0 we have y = 3

Thus we have the following table giving points on the line x + y = 3

(i) 2x + 3y = 12 and x - y = 1

(ii) 3x + 2y - 4 = 0 and 2x - 3y - 7 = 0

(iii) 3x + 2y - 11 = 0 and 2x - 3y + 10 = 0

### Solution:

(i) 2x + 3y = 12 and x - y = 1

The system of the given equation is y = x, 3y = x and y + x = 8

Now, 2x + 3y = 12

When y = 2, then x = 3

When y = 4, then x = 0

Thus, we have the following table:

 X 0 3 Y 4 2

We have,

x - y = 1

x = y + 1

When y = 0, then x = 1

When y = 1, then x = 2

Thus, we have the following table:

 X 1 2 Y 0 1

Graph of the given system is:

Clearly the two lines intersect at P (3, 2)

Hence x = 3 and y = 2 is the solution of the given system of equations.

The system of the given equation is 3x + 2y - 4 = 0 and 2x - 3y - 7 = 0

Now, 3x + 2y - 4 = 0

When y = 5, then x = - 2

When y = 8, then x = - 4

Thus, we have the following table:

 X - 2 - 4 Y 5 8

We have,

2x - 3y - 7 = 0

When y = 1, then x = 5

When y = -1, then x = 2

Thus, we have the following table:

When y = 4, then x = 1

Thus, we have the following table:

 X 3 1 Y 1 4

We have,

2x - 3y + 10 = 0

When y = 0, then x = - 5

When y = 2, then x = - 2

Graph of the given system is:

Clearly the two lines intersect at A (3, 2)

We also observe that the lines meet y-axis B (0, - 1) and C (0, 4)

Thus, we have the following table:

 X 2 - 2 Y 3 - 1

We have,

3x + 2y - 12 = 0

When y = 6, then x = 0

When y = 3, then x = 2

When y = 0, then x = -1

When y = 4, then x = 2

Thus, we have the following table:

 X 2 -1 Y 4 0

We have,

4x + 3y - 2 = 0

When y = 0, then x = 5

When y = 4, then x = 2

Form the pair of linear equation in the following problems, and find their solution graphically:

(i) 10 students of class X took part in 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 costs Rs.50, whereas 7 pencils and 5 pens together cost Rs.46.

Find the cost of one pencil and one pen.

(iii) Champa went to a sale to purchase some pants and skirts. When her friends asked her how many of each kind she had bought, she answered, “the number of skirts is two less than twice the number of pants purchase”. Also, ” the number of skirts is four less than four times the number of pants purchased.”Help her friends to find how many pants and skirts champa bought.

### Solution:

(i) Let the number of girls and boys in the class be x and y respectively.

According to the Q.,

x + y = 10 and x - y = 4 are the given equations

Now, x + y = 10

x = 10 - y

Three solutions of this equation can be written as follows:

 X 4 5 6 Y 6 5 4

x - y = 4

x = 4 + y

Three solutions of this equation can be written as follows:

 X 5 4 3 Y 1 0 -1

The graphical representation is as follows:

From the graph, it can be observed that the two lines intersect each other at point (7, 3).

So x = 7 and y = 3

The number of girls and boys in the class are 7 and 3 respectively.

(ii) Let the cost of one pencil and one pen Rs. x and Rs. y respectively.

According to the Q., we have,

5x + 7y = 50

7x + 5y = 50

Now, 5x + 7y = 50

Three solutions of this equation can be written as follows:

 X 3 10 - 4 y 5 0 10

7x + 5y = 46

Three solutions of this equation can be written as follows:

 X 8 3 -2 y -2 5 12

The graphical representation is as follows:

From the graph it can be observed that the two lines intersect each other at the point (3, 5)

So x = 3 and y = 5

Therefore the cost of the pencil and the pen are 3 and 5 respectively.

(iii) Let us denote the number of pants by x and the number of skirts be y. Then the equations formed are :

y = 2x – 2     …… (i)

y = 4x - 2   ….. (ii)

The graphs of the equations (i) and (ii) can be drawn by finding two solutions for each of the equations. They are given in the following table.

 X 2 0 Y=  2x - 2 2 -2

Hence, the graphic representation is as follows.

The two lines inetersect at the point (1, 0). So, x = 1, y = 0 is the required solution of the pair of linear equations, i.e., the number of parts she purchased is 1 and she didi not buy any skirt.

### Question: 33

Solve the following system of equations graphically:

Shade the region between the lines and y-axis

(i) 3x - 4y = 7 and 5x + 2y = 3

(ii) 4x - y = 4 and 3x + 2y = 14

### Solution:

The given system of linear equation is 3x - 4y = 7 and 5x + 2y = 3

Now, 3x - 4y = 7

When x = 1 then, y = – 1

When x = – 3 then y = – 4

Thus, we have the following table

 X 1 - 3 Y -1 - 4

Now, 5x + 2y = 3

When x = 1 then, y = – 1

When x = 3 then y = – 6

Thus, we have the following table

 X 1 3 Y -1 - 6

Graph of the given system of equations are:

Clearly the two lines intersect at A(1,-1)

Hence x = 1 and y = -1 is the solution of the given system of equations.

(ii) 4x - y = 4 and 3x + 2y = 14

The given system of linear equation is 4x - y = 4 and 3x + 2y = 14

Now, 4x - y = 4

y = 4x - 4

When x = 0 then, y = – 4

When x = -1 then y = - 8

Thus, we have the following table

 X 0 -1 y - 4 -8

Now, 3x + 2y = 14

When x = 0 then, y = 7

When x = 4 then y = 1

Thus, we have the following table

 X 0 4 Y 7 1

Graph of the given system of equations are:

Clearly the two lines intersect at A (2, 4)

Hence x = 2 and y = 4 is the solution of the given system of equations.

### Question: 34

x + 3y = 6 and 2x - 3y = 12

Now, x + 3y = 6

When x = 0 then, y = 2

When x = 3 then y = 1

Thus, we have the following table

 X 0 3 Y 2 1

Now, 2x - 3y = 12

When x = 0 then, y = – 4

When x = 6 then y = 0

Thus, we have the following table

 X 0 6 Y -4 0

Graph of the given system of equations are:

Clearly the two lines meet y-axis at B(0, 2) and C(0, -4) respectively.

Hence the required coordinates are (0, 2) and (0, -4)

### Question: 35

Given the linear equation 2x + 3y - 8 = 0, write another in two variables in two variables such that the geometrical representation of the pair so formed is (i) intersecting lines (ii) parallel lines (iii) coincident lines

### Solution:

(i) For the two lines a1x + b1x + c1 = 0 and a2x + b2x + c2 = 0 to be intersecting. We must have

So the other linear equation can be 5x + 6y - 16 = 0

(ii) For the two lines a1x + b1x + c1 = 0 and a2x + b2x + c2 = 0 to be parallel we must have

So, the other linear equation can be 6x + 9y + 24 = 0

(iii) For the two lines a1x + b1x + c1 = 0  and a2x + b2x + c2 = 0 to be coincident we must have

So, the other linear equation can be 6x + 9y + 24 = 0
