(b) Calculation problems
(c) Multiple choice questions
(d) Long answer questions
(e) Fill in the blank's

Question 1
Ravish tells his daughter Aarushi, ‘ Seven years ago, I was seven times as old as you were then also, three years from now, I shall be three times as old as you will be.’ If the present ages of Aarushi and Ravish are x and y years respectively, represent this situation algebraically as well as graphically.
Solution
First condition
y-7 = 7(x-7)
or y = 7x -42
Second Condition
y+3 = 3(x+3)
or y= 3x + 6
Now we can draw the graph of both the linear equation by choosing points on x-axis and y -axis i.e by firt putting x=0 ,getting the y -coordinate and then putting y=0 and getting the x-coordinate

Question 3
A and B are friends. A is elder to B by 5 years. B’s sister C is half the age of B while A’s father D is 8 years older than twice the age of B. If the present age of D is 48 years, find the present ages of A, B and C.
Solution
Let x be the age of B
Let y be the age of A
Now from question
y=x + 5
Now also
D Age = 2x + 8
Now D age =48,So
48=2x+8
x= 20 years
Hence y = 25 years
Now C's Age is half the age of B. Therefore C's Age will be 10 years

Question 4
Cost of 5 kg apples and 2 kg oranges is Rs. 330. Let the cost of 1 kg apples be Rs. x and that of 1 kg is Rs. y. Write the given data in the form of linear equation in two variables. Also , represent it graphically.
Solution
5x + 2y=330


Question 5

Write the linear equation for above relation and draw graph. Find the parking Charges for 5 hrs from Graph
Solution
y = 20 + 10(x-2)
y= 10x

We can observe that parking charge for 5 hours is Rs 50

(b)The number of votes cast, if the total number of voters are 1000
(c) What message did you cast from above information?
Solution
Let x be the total number of voters and y be the number of voter who cast their votes
Then as per question
y = 60% x
$y = \frac {60x}{100}$
$10y = 6x$
The graph can be drawn with the help of two points (0,0) and (400,240)
Class 9 Linear equation extra questions
Now from the graph, it is clear that total of no. of voters is 1200 when 720 voters cast their votes
And The number of votes cast is 600 when total number of voters are 1000
The message we get that large number of people does not cast their vote and do not participate in selection of good candidate

Solution
Linear equation extra questions for Class 9 Maths

Question 12
If x is the number of hours a laborer is on work and y is his wages in rupees, then y = 4x + 3. Draw the work wages graph of this equation. From the graph, find the wages of a laborer who puts in 4 hours of work.

Question 13
Find whether (a,a) lies on the lines $y - x = 0$ or not.
Solution
By putting the values x=a and y=a
$ a -a=0$
$0=0$
So, point (a,a) lie on the line

Question 14
Find the point on x axis from where graph of linear equation x - 5y = 3 will pass.
Solution
Let the point on x -axis is (a,0)
Putting x=a and y=0
$a -5 \times 0 =3$
$a=3$
So the point is (3,0)

Question 15
if ax + 3y = 25 and y = 1 find value of x
Solution
ax + 3y = 25
Putting y=1
$ax + 3 =25$
$ax=22$
$x = \frac {22}{a}$



Question 16
When a stone is falling from a mountain its initial velocity is zero and the acceleration due to gravity is 9.8m/s2. Velocity of the stone is given by v = 9.8t.Draw its graph and find the velocity of stone after 4 secs?
Question 17

Question 18
The perimeter of a rectangle is 80 m. If the length of the field is decreased by 2 m and breadth increased by 2 m, the area is increased by 36 sq. km. find the length and breadth of rectangle.
Solution
2(L+B)=80
or
L+ B =40 -(1)
A=LB
ALso
$(L-2)(B+2) = A +36 $
$LB -2B + 2L +4=LB + 36$
$L-B = 16$ --(2)
Adding (1) and (2)
$2L = 56$
$L=28$ m
And Then $B=12$ units

Let x be the poeple having other diseases and y be the people having asthma
Then as per question
$y = 5 + \frac {2}{3} x$
or
$3y =15 + 2x$
Drawing the graph choosing the point x= 15 and 30

Also we can see from the graph, when number of people suffer from other diseases are 75, number of people suffer from asthma are 55
The message is that Smoking in injurious to the health
