### Short Answer Type Questions (Solved Examples)

We observe that there is a point R (2, 4) common to both the lines AB and PQ.

The triangle formed by these lines and the *x- axis* is BQR.

The vertices of this triangle are B (–2, 0), Q (1, 0) and R (2, 4).

We know that;

### Long Answer Type Questions (Solved Examples)

C is a point on the x-axis at a distance of 2 units to the left of y-axis. So, the coordinates of C are (–2, 0)

B is the solution of the pair of equations *x* = –2 and *y* = 3. So, the coordinates of B are (–2, 3) So, the vertices of the rectangle OABC are O (0, 0), A (0, 3), B (–2, 3), C (–2, 0)

The length and breadth of this rectangle are 2 units and 3 units, respectively.

As the area of a rectangle = length × breadth,

the area of rectangle OABC = 2 × 3 = 6 *sq.* units.

** Sample Question 2:** Determine, algebraically, the vertices of the triangle formed by the lines

5*x* – *y* = 5, *x* + 2*y* = 1 and 6*x* + *y* = 17.

5*x* – *y* = 5

6*x* + *y* = 17,

we get *x* = 2, *y* = 5.

So, the third vertex of the triangle is (2, 5). So, the three vertices of the triangle are

(1, 0), (3, –1) and (2, 5).

** Sample Question 3: **Jamila sold a table and a chair for Rs 1050, thereby making a profit

of 10% on the table and 25% on the chair. If she had taken a profit of 25% on the table and

10% on the chair she would have got Rs 1065. Find the cost price of each.

** Solution: **Let the cost price of the table be Rs x and the cost price of the chair be Rs *y*.
