Question 1
The cost of a notebook is twice the cost of a pen. Write a linear equation in two variables to represent this statement.
(Take the cost of a notebook to be Rs x and that of a pen to be Rs y.)
Solution
Let cost of notebook and a pen be x and y respectively.
Cost of note book = 2 cost of pen
$x = 2y$
$x - 2 y = 0$

Question 2
Express the following linear equations in the form ax + by + c = 0 and indicate the values of a, b, c in each case:
(i) $2x+3y=9.3\bar{5}$
(ii) $x- \frac {y}{5}-10=0$
(iii) $-2x + 3 y = 6$
(iv) $x = 3y$
(v) $2x = - 5y$
(vi) $3x + 2 = 0$
(vii) $y - 2 = 0$
(viii) $5 = 2x$
Solution
(i) $2x+3y=9.3\bar{5}$
=> $2x+3y-9.3\bar{5} =0$
Comparing this equation with $ax + by + c = 0$,
a=2 ,b=3 $c=-9.3\bar{5}$.

(ii) $x- \frac {y}{5}-10=0$
Comparing this equation with $ax + by + c = 0$,
a = 1, b =-1/5,c = -10

(iii) $-2x + 3 y = 6$
=> $-2x + 3 y - 6 = 0$
Comparing this equation with $ax + by + c = 0$,
a = -2, b = 3, c = -6
(iv)$x = 3y$
=> $x - 3y + 0 = 0$
Comparing this equation with $ax + by + c = 0$,
a = 1, b = -3, c = 0
(v) $2x = - 5y$
=> $2x + 5y + 0= 0$
Comparing this equation with $ax + by + c = 0$,
a = 2, b = 5, c = 0
(vi) $3x + 2 = 0$
=> $3x + 0.y + 2 = 0$
Comparing this equation with $ax + by + c = 0$,
a = 3, b = 0, c = 2
(vii) $y - 2 = 0$
=> y - 2 = 0
Comparing this equation with $ax + by + c = 0$,
a = 0, b = 1, c = -2
(vii) $5 = 2x$
=> $- 2x + 5 = 0$
Comparing this equation with $ax + by + c = 0$,
a = -2, b = 0, c = 5
