## Karnataka SSLC Class 10 Maths Solutions Chapter 3 Pair of Linear Equations in Two Variables Exercise 3.2

Question 1.
Form the pair of linear equations in the following problems, and find their solutions graphically.
(i) 10 students of Class X took part in a Mathematics quiz. If the number of girls is 4 more than the number of boys, find the number of boys and girls who took part in the quiz.
(ii) 5 pencils and 7 pens together cost Rs. 50, whereas 7 pencils and 5 pens together cost Rs. 46. Find the cost of one pencil and that of one pen.
Solution:
(i) Strength of the X Std. is 10
Number of boys be ‘y’, then
number of girls be ‘x’ .
x + y = 10 …….. (i)
x = y + 4
∴ x – y = 4 ………. (ii)
From equations (i) + (ii) $$\quad x=\frac{14}{2}=7$$
Substituting the value of ‘x’ in eqn. (i),
x + y = 10
7 + y = 10
y = 10 – 7
y = 4.
∴ Number of girls, x = 7
Number of boys, y = 4.

(ii) Cost of each pencil be Rs. ‘x’
Cost of pen be Rs. ‘y’
5x + 7y = 50 ………. (i)
7x + 5y = 46 ……….. (ii)
From equation (i) + equation (ii) ∴ x + y = 8 …………… (iii)
from Eqn. (ii) – Eqn. (i), ∴ -x + y = 2 …………. (iv)
Eqn. (iii) + Eqn. (iv) ∴ y = 5
Substituting the value of ‘y’ in eqn. (i)
x + y = 8
x + 5 = 8
∴ x = 8 – 5 x = 3
∴Cost of each pencil is Rs. 3.
Cost of each pen is Rs. 5.

Question 2.
On comparing the ratios $$\frac{a_{1}}{a_{2}}, \frac{b_{1}}{b_{2}} \text { and } \frac{c_{1}}{c_{2}}$$ find out whether the lines representing the following pairs of linear equations intersect at a point, are parallel or coincident:
i) 5x – 4y + 8 = 0
7x + 6y – 9 = 0
ii) 9x + 3y + 12 = 0
18x + 6y + 24 = 0
iii) 6x – 3y + 10 = 0
2x – y + 9 = 0
Solution:
i) 5x – 4y + 8 = 0 a1= 5, b1 = -4, C1= 8
7x + 6y – 9 = 0 a2 = 7, b2= 6, c2= -9
$$\frac{a_{1}}{a_{2}}=\frac{5}{7} \quad \frac{b_{1}}{b_{2}}=\frac{-4}{6} \quad \frac{c_{1}}{c_{2}}=\frac{8}{-9}$$
Here, $$\frac{\mathbf{a}_{1}}{\mathbf{a}_{2}} \neq \frac{\mathbf{b}_{1}}{\mathbf{b}_{2}}$$
∴ Lines representing the pairs of linear equations intersect at a point.

ii) 9x + 3y + 12 = 0
18x + 6y + 24 = 0
a1 =9, b1 = 3, c1 = 12
a2 = 18, b2 = 6, c2 = 24
$$\frac{\mathrm{a}_{1}}{\mathrm{a}_{2}}=\frac{9}{18}=\frac{1}{2} \quad \frac{\mathrm{b}_{1}}{\mathrm{b}_{2}}=\frac{3}{6}=\frac{1}{2}$$
$$\frac{c_{1}}{c_{2}}=\frac{12}{24}=\frac{1}{2}$$

∴ Representation of lines graphically are coincident.

iii) 6x – 3y + 10 = 0
2x – y + 9 = 0
Here, a1 = 6, b1 = -3, c1 = 10
a2 = 2, b2 = -1, c2 = 9
$$\frac{a_{1}}{a_{2}}=\frac{6}{2}=\frac{3}{1} \quad \frac{b_{1}}{b_{2}}=\frac{-3}{-1}=\frac{3}{1}$$
$$\frac{c_{1}}{c_{2}}=\frac{10}{9}$$
Here, $$\frac{a_{1}}{a_{2}}=\frac{b_{1}}{b_{2}} \neq \frac{c_{1}}{c_{2}}$$

Half the perimeter of a rectangular garden, whose length is 4m more than its width, is 36m. Find the dimensions of the garden. Solution:
Length of rectangular garden be ‘x’ m.
Breadth of rectangular garden be ‘y’ m, then
Length of the garden is 4m more than its width.
x = y + 4 ……….. (i)
x – y = 4
Half of the circumference is 36 m.
$$\frac{2 x+2 y}{2}=36$$
2x + 2y = 72
x + y = 36 …………… (ii)
∴ x – y = 4 (i)
x + y = 36 (ii)
From eqn. (i) + eqn. (ii) $$\quad x=\frac{40}{2}$$
∴ x = 20 m.
Substituting the value of ’x’ in eqn. (i)
x – y = 4
20 – y = 4
