Answer the following:

(a) Take Sarita’s present age to be y years

(i) What will be her age 5 years from now?

(ii) What was her age 3 years back?

(iii) Sarita’s grandfather is 6 times her age. What is the age of her grandfather?

(iv) Grandmother is 2 years younger than grandfather. What is grandmother’s age?

(v) Sarita’s father’s age is 5 years more than 3 times Sarita’s age. What is her father’s age?

(b) The length of a rectangular hall is 4 meters less than 3 times the breadth of the hall. What is the length, if the breadth is

(c) A rectangular box has height

(d) Meena, Beena and Leena are climbing the steps to the hill top. Meena is at step

(e) A bus travels at

i) Her age 5 years from now = her present age + 5 =

ii) Her age 3 years back = her present age – 3 years =

iii) Sarita’s grandfather age = 6 times her age = 6

iv) Grandmother’s age = Grandfather’s age – 2 = 6

v) Sarita’s father’s age is 5 years more than 3 times Sarita’s age = 5 + 3

b) breadth of the rectangular hall =

length of the hall = 4 meters less than 3 times the breadth = 3

c) height of the rectangular box =

length = 5 times the height = 5

breadth = 10 cm less than the length = 5

d) Step at which Meena is =

Step at which Beena is = Meena’s step + 8 steps =

Step at which Leena is = Meena’s step – 7 =

Total number of steps = 4

e) Distance travelled by the bus in 1 hour = v km

Distance travelled in 5 hours = 5

So, total distance from Daspur to Beespur = Distance travelled in 5 hours + 20 = 5

Change the following statements using expressions into statements in ordinary language.

Pick out the solution from the values given in the bracket next to each equation. Show that the other values do not satisfy the equation.

(a)

(b)

(c)

(d) q/2=7 (7, 2, 10, 14)

(e)

(f)

a) 5m = 60

Let's try the equation of each given value of m

For m = 10, 5m = 5(10) = 50

For m = 5, 5m = 5(5) = 25

For m = 12, 5m = 5(12) = 60

For m = 15, 5m = 5(15) = 75

So, we see that m = 12 satisfy the equation and is the solution.

b) n + 12 = 20

Let's try the equation of each given value of n

For n = 12, n + 12 = 12 + 12 = 24

For n = 8, n + 12 = 8 + 12 = 20

For n = 20, n + 12 = 20 + 12 = 32

For n = 0, n + 12 = 0 + 12 = 12

So, we see that n = 8 satisfy the equation and is the solution.

c) p – 5 = 5

Let's try the equation of each given value of p

For p = 0, p – 5 = 0 – 5 = -5

For p = 10, p – 5 = 10 – 5 = 5

For p = 5, p – 5 = 5 – 5 = 0

For p = -5, p – 5 = -5 – 5 = -10

So, we see that

d) q/2 = 7

Let's try the equation of each given value of q

For q = 7, q/2 = 7/2

For q = 2, q/2 = 2/2 = 1

For q = 10, q/2 = 10/2 = 5

For q = 14, q/2 = 14/2 = 7

So, we see that q = 14 satisfy the equation and is the solution.

Solve the following riddles, you may yourself construct such riddles.

(i) Go round a square

Counting every corner

Thrice and no more!

Add the count to me

To get exactly thirty-four!

(ii) For each day of the week

Make an up count from me

If you make no mistake

You will get twenty-three!

(iii) I am a special number

Take away from me a six!

A whole cricket team

You will still be able to fix!

(iv) Tell me who I am

I shall give a pretty clue!

You will get me back

If you take me out of twenty-two!

“Counting every corner Thrice and no more!”

Implies we go around the square thrice, i.e. 12 times.

“Add the count to me to get exactly thirty-four!”

That is, when 12 is added to a number

Let us assume the number as y, we get 34.

12 +

So, 22 is the number.

If 23 is the number for Sunday,

Then counting up, Saturday is 22, Friday is 21, Thursday is 20, Wednesday is 19, Tuesday is 18, Monday is 17 and Sunday is 16.

Therefore, the number considered is 16.

Let the number be

If we take away 6 from

The special number is 17.

Let the number be x.

22 –

22 =

x = 22/2 = 11

The number is 11.
