## Multiple choice Questions

Question 3.
find the value of p for which the linear pair has infinite solution
$12x+14y=0$
$36x+py=0$
a. 14
b. 28
c. 56
d. 42
Solution (d)
For infinite solution
$\frac{a_{1}}{a_{2}}= \frac{b_{1}}{b_{2}}$
So $\frac {12}{36}=\frac {14}{p}$ => p=42

Question 4.

a. 1,9
b. 4,6
c. 2,8
d. 3,7
Solution (d)
Let x be math’s students
y be bio students
Then
$x+y=10$
$y=x+4$
Solving these linear pair through any method we get
x=3 and y=7

Question 5.
which of the below pair are consistent pair?

$\frac{a_{1}}{a_{2}}= \frac{b_{1}}{b_{2}}=\frac{c_{1}}{c_{2}}$
Analyzing all of them ,we get c as the answer

a. No solution
b. One solution
c. infinite many

Solution (d)

Question 8.
The sum of a 2 digit number and number obtained by reversing the order of the digits is 99. If the digits of the number differ by 3. Find the number
Solution  63 or 36

Question 9.
Rajdhani train covered the distance between Lucknow and Delhi  at a uniform speed. It is observed that  if rajdhani would have run slower by 10 km/hr,it would have taken 3 hours more to reach the destination and if rajdhani would have run faster by 10 km/hr,it would have taken 2 hours less. Find the distance Lucknow and Delhi?
Solution
Let x be the speed and t be the original timing ,then distance between Lucknow and Delhi
$Distance =speed \times time =xy$
Now from first observation
$xy=(x-10)(y+3)$ => $3x-10y-30=0$
From second observation
$xy=(x+10)(y-2)$ => $2x-10y+20=0$
Solving both we get
x=50km/hr
y=12hours
So distance between Lucknow and Delhi=$50 \times 12=600$ Km

Question 10.
Using substitution method solve the below equation
a. $x-2y+300=0$, $6x-y-70=0$
b. $5x-y=5, 3x-y=3$
Solution a. From Ist equation
$x=2y-300$
Substituting this in second equation
$6(2y-300)- y-70=0$ => $y=170$
Putting this Ist equation
$x=40$
b. Similarly,this can be solved. Answer is ( 1,0)

Question 11.
Using elimination method ,solve the following
a. $x+y-40=0$ ,$7x+3y=180$
b. $x+10y =68$ , $x+15y=98$
Solution a. $x+y-40=0$ ---(1)
$7x+3y=180$ ---(2)
Multiplying equation (1) by 7
$7x+7y-280=0$ ---(3)
Subtracting equation 2 from equation 7
$7x+7y-280=0$
$7x+3y=180$
We get
$4y=100$ => $y=25$
Substituting this in (1) ,we get $x=15$
b. ( 8,6)

Question 12.
Solve the below linear equation using cross-multiplication method
a. $(a-b)x + (a=b) y=a^2-2ab-b^2$ , $(a+b)(x+y)=a^2+ b^2$
b. $x+y=5$ ,$2x-3y=4$
Solution
 3 Cross Multiplication method 1. Suppose the equation are $a_1x+b_1y+ c_1=0$ $a_2x +b_2y+c_2=0$ 2. This can be written as 3. This can be written as 4. Value of x and y can be find using the x => first and last expression y=> second and last expression
a. The equation can be written as
$(a-b)x + (a=b) y=a^2-2ab-b^2$
$(a+b)(x+y)=a^2+ b^2$
By cross multiplication we have $x=a+b$, $y=-2ab(a+b)^{-1}$
b. (19/5,6/5)
