Algebraic interpretation
$\frac{a_{1}}{a_{2}}\neq \frac{b_{1}}{b_{2}}$
One unique solution only.
$\frac{a_{1}}{a_{2}}= \frac{b_{1}}{b_{2}}=\frac{c_{1}}{c_{2}}$
Infinite solution.
$\frac{a_{1}}{a_{2}}= \frac{b_{1}}{b_{2}}\neq \frac{c_{1}}{c_{2}}$
No solution
One unique solution: (a), (d), (e), (f), (d)

Question 2. Using substitution method solve the below equation
a) x-2y+300=0, 6x-y-70=0
b) 5x-y=5, 3x-y=3
Method of elimination by substitution
1) Suppose the equation are
a2x +b2y+c2=0
2) Find the value of variable of either x or y in other variable term in first equation
3) Substitute the value of that variable in second equation
4) Now this is a linear equation in one variable. Find the value of the variable
5) Substitute this value in first equation  and get the second variable
a)  From Ist equation
Substituting this in second equation
6(2y-300) –y-70=0  =>  y=170
Putting this Ist equation
x=> 40
b) ( 1,0)
Question 3. Using elimination method ,solve the following
a) x+y-40=0 ,7x+3y=180
b) x+10y =68 , x+15y=98
Method of elimination by equating the coefficients
1) Suppose the equation are
a2x +b2y+c2=0
2) Find the LCM of a1 and a2 .Let it k.
3) Multiple the first equation by the value k/a1
4) Multiple the first equation by the value k/a2
4) Subtract the equation obtained. This way one variable will be eliminated and we can solve to get the value of variable y
5) Substitute this value in first equation  and get the second variable
a) x+y-40=0   ---(1)
7x+3y=180  ---(2)
ultiplying equation (1) by 7
7x+7y-280=0 ---(3)
Subtracting equation 2 from equation 7
We get
4y=100 => y=25
Substituting this in (1) ,we get x=15
b) ( 8,6)
Question 4  Solve the below linear equation using cross-multiplication method
a) (a-b)x + (a=b) y=a2-2ab-b2 , (a+b)(x+y)=a2+ b2
b)  x+y=5  ,2x-3y=4
Cross Multiplication method
1) Suppose the equation are
a2x +b2y+c2=0
2) This can be written as
Cross multipication 3) This can be written as
Cross multipication 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-(a2-2ab-b2) =0
(a+b)x+(a+b)y-(a2+ b2)=0
By cross multiplication we have
x=a+b, y=-2ab(a+b)-1
b) (19/5,6/5)
Question 6 -True or False statement
a) Line 4x+5y=0 and 11x+17y=0 both passes through origin
b) Pair of lines  117x+14y=30 , 65x+11y=19 are consistent and have a unique solution
c) There are infinite solution for equation 17x+12y=30
 d) x=0 ,y=0 has one unique solution
e) Lines represented by x-y=0 and x+y=0 are perpendicular to each other
f) 2x+6y=12 and 8x+24y=65 are consistent pair of equation
g) x+6y=12 and 4x+24y=64  are inconsistent pair of equation
  1. True
  2. True
  3. True
  4. True
  5. True
  6. False
  7. True
Multiple choice Questions
Question 7 find the value of p for which the  linear pair has infinite solution
a) 14
b) 28
c) 56
d) 42
Solution (d)
For infinite solution
$\frac{a_{1}}{a_{2}}= \frac{b_{1}}{b_{2}}$
So 12/36=14/p => p=42
Question 8.  There are 10 students in XII class. Some are maths and some bio student.. The no of bio students are  4 more then math’s students?. Find the no of math’s and bio students
a)  1,9
b) 4,6
c)  2,8
d) 3,7
Solution (d)
Let x be math’s students
y be bio students
Solving these linear pair through any method we get
x=3 and y=7
Question 9 which of the below pair are consistent pair?
a) x-3y=3 . 3x-9y=2
b) 51x +68y=110 ,  3x+4y=99
c)  2x+3y=10 , 9x+11y=12
d) None of these
Solution c
For consistent pair
$\frac{a_{1}}{a_{2}}= \frac{b_{1}}{b_{2}}$
$\frac{a_{1}}{a_{2}}= \frac{b_{1}}{b_{2}}=\frac{c_{1}}{c_{2}}$
Analyzing all of them ,we get c as the answer

Question 10. There are two numbers. Two conditions are there for them
i) Sum of these two numbers are 100
ii) One number is four time another number.
What are these numbers?
a) 20,80
b) 30,70
d) 25,75
Solution (a)
Let x and y are the number
Solving them we get x=20 and y=80
Question 11  The number of solution of the linear pair
a) No solution
b) One solution
c) infinite many
d)  None of these
Solution (d)
Short answer question
Question 12 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 13. 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?
Let x be the speed and t be the original timing ,then distance between Lucknow and Delhi
Distance =speed X 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
So distance between Lucknow and Delhi=50X12=600 Km
