### Question & Answer

Q.1:Solve the following equations. 1.1 x – 2 = 7 1.2 y + 3 = 10 1.3 6 = z + 2 1.4 \(\frac{3}{7}+x=\frac{17}{7}\) 1.5 6 x=12 1.6 \(\frac{t}{5}=10\) 1.7 \(\frac{2 x}{3}=18\) 1.8 \(1.6=\frac{y}{1.5}\) 1.9 \(7 x-9=16\) 1.10 \(14 y-8=13\) 1.11 \(17+ 6p = 9\) 1.12 \(\frac{x}{3}+1=\frac{7}{15}\)

Ans :1.1 x – 2 = 7 Transposing 2 to R.H.S, we obtain x = 7+2 = 9 1.2 y + 3 = 10 Transposing 3 to R.H.S, we obtain y = 10 - 3 = 7 1.3 6 = z + 2 Transposing 2 to L.H.S, we obtain 6 - 2 = z z = 4 1.4 \(\frac{3}{7}+x=\frac{17}{7}\) Transposing \(\frac{3}{7}\)to R. H.S, we obtain \(x=\frac{17}{7}-\frac{3}{7}=\frac{14}{7}=2\) 1.5 6 x=12 Dividing both sides by 6, we obtain \(\begin{array}{l}{\frac{6 x}{6}=\frac{12}{6}} \\ {x=2}\end{array}\) 1.6 \(\frac{t}{5}=10\) \(\begin{array}{l}{\text { Multiplying both sides by } 5, \text { we obtain }} \\ {\frac{g}{5} \times 5=10 \times 5} \\ {t=50}\end{array}\) 1.7 \(\frac{2 x}{3}=18\) \(\begin{array}{l}{\text { Multiplying both sides by }3/ 2 \text { , we obtain }} \\ {\frac{2 x}{3} \times \frac{3}{2}=18 \times \frac{3}{2}} \\ {x=27}\end{array}\) 1.8 \(1.6=\frac{y}{1.5}\) \(\begin{array}{l}{\text { Multiplying both sides by } 1.5, \text { we obtain }} \\ {1.6 \times 1.5=\frac{y}{1.5} \times 1.5} \\ {2.4=y}\end{array}\) 1.9 \(7 x-9=16\) \(\begin{array}{l}{\text { Transposing } 9 \text { to R.H.S, we obtain }} \\ {7 x=16+9} \\ {7 x=25} \\ {\text { Dividing both sides by } 7, \text { we obtain }} \\ {\frac{7 x}{7}=\frac{25}{7}} \\ {x=\frac{25}{7}}\end{array}\) 1.10 \(14 y-8=13\) Transposing 8 to R.H.S, we obtain 14y = 13 + 8 14y = 21 Dividing both sides by 14, we obtain \(\begin{array}{l}{\frac{14 y}{14}=\frac{21}{14}} \\ {y=\frac{3}{2}}\end{array}\) 1.11 \(17+ 6p = 9\) Transposing 17 to R.H.S, we obtain 6p = 9 - 17 6p = -8 \(\begin{array}{l}{\text { Dividing both sides by } 6, \text { we obtain }} \\ {\frac{6 p}{6}=-\frac{8}{6}} \\ {p=-\frac{4}{3}}\end{array}\) 1.12 \(\frac{x}{3}+1=\frac{7}{15}\) Transposing 1 to R.H.S, we obtain \(\begin{array}{l}{\frac{x}{3}=\frac{7}{15}-1} \\ {\frac{x}{3}=\frac{7-15}{15}} \\ {\frac{x}{3}=-\frac{8}{15}} \\ {\text { Multiplying both sides by } 3, \text { we obtain }} \\ {\frac{x}{3} \times 3=-\frac{8}{15} \times 3} \\ {x=-\frac{8}{5}}\end{array}\)

Q.2:If you subtract \(\frac{1}{2}\) from a number and multiply the result by \(\frac{1}{2}\), you get \(\frac{1}{2}\) . What is the number?

Ans :\(\begin{array}{l}{\text { Let the number be } x \text { . According to the question, }} \\ {\left(x-\frac{1}{2}\right) \times \frac{1}{2}=\frac{1}{8}} \\ {\text { On multiplying both sides by } 2, \text { we obtain }} \\ {\left(x-\frac{1}{2}\right) \times \frac{1}{2} \times 2=\frac{1}{8} \times 2} \\ {x-\frac{1}{2}=\frac{1}{4}} \\ {\text { On transposing } 1/2 \text { to R.H.S, we obtain }}\end{array}\) \(\begin{aligned} x &=\frac{1}{4}+\frac{1}{2} \\ &=\frac{1+2}{4}=\frac{3}{4} \end{aligned}\) Therefore, the number is \(\frac{3}{4}\)

Q.3:The perimeter of a rectangular swimming pool is 154m. Its length is 2 m more than twice its breadth. What are the length and the breadth of the pool?

Ans :Let the breadth be x m. The length will be (2x + 2) m. Perimeter of swimming pool = 2(l + b) = 154 m 2(2x + 2 + x) = 154 2(3x + 2) = 154 \(\begin{array}{l}{\text { Dividing both sides by } 2, \text { we obtain }} \\ {\frac{2(3 x+2)}{2}=\frac{154}{2}} \\ {3 x+2=77}\end{array}\) On transposing 2 to R.H .S, we obtain 3x = 77 - 2 3x = 75 \(\begin{array}{l}{\frac{3 x}{3}=\frac{75}{3}} \\ {x=25} \\ {2 x+2=2 \times 25+2=52}\end{array}\) Hence, the breadth and length of the pool are 25 m and Q2 Which of the following numbers would have digit 6 at unit place. \(\begin{array}{ll}{\text { (i) } 19^{2}} & {\text { (ii) } 24^{2}} \quad {\text { (iii) } 26^{2}}\\ {\text { (iv) } 36^{2}} & {\text { (v) } 34^{2}}\end{array}\) 52 m respectively

Q.4:The base of an isosceles triangle is \(\frac{4}{3}\) cm . The perimeter of the triangle is \(4 \frac{2}{15}\) cm . What is the length of either of the remaining equal sides?

Ans :Let the length of equal sides be x cm. Perimeter = x cm + x cm + Base = \(4 \frac{2}{15}\) cm \(2 x+\frac{4}{3}=\frac{62}{15}\) On transposing \(\frac{4}{3}\) to R. H.S, we obtain \(\begin{array}{l}{2 x=\frac{62}{15}-\frac{4}{3}} \\ {2 x=\frac{62-4 \times 5}{15}=\frac{62-20}{15}} \\ {2 x=\frac{42}{15}} \\ {\text { On dividing both sides by } 2, \text { we obtain }} \\ {\frac{2 x}{2}=\frac{42}{15} \times \frac{1}{2}} \\ {x=\frac{7}{5}=1 \frac{2}{5}}\end{array}\) Therefore, the length of equal sides is \(1 \frac{2}{5}\) cm

Q.5:Sum of two numbers is 95. If one exceeds the other by 15, find the numbers.

Ans :Let one number be x. Therefore, the other number will be x + 15. According to the question, x + x + 15 = 95 2x + 15 = 95 On transposing 15 to R.H.S, we obtain 2x = 95 -15 2x = 80 On dividing both sides by 2, we obtain \(\begin{array}{l}{\frac{2 x}{2}=\frac{80}{2}} \\ {x=40} \\ {x+15=40+15=55} \\ {\text { Hence, the numbers are } 40 \text { and } 55 .}\end{array}\)
