MP Board Class 10th Maths Solutions Chapter 3 Pair of Linear Equations in Two Variables Ex 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 ₹ 50, whereas 7 pencils and 5 pens together cost ₹ 46. Find the cost of one pencil and that of one pen.
Solution:
(i) Let the number of boys = x and Number of girls = y
∴ x + y = 10 …. (1)
Also, Number of girls = [Number of boys] + 4
∴ y = x + 4 ⇒ x – y = – 4 … (2)
Now, from the equation (1), we have :
l1 : x + y = 10 ⇒ y = 10 – x

And from the equation (2), we have
l2 : x – y = -4 ⇒ y = x + 4
MP Board Class 10th Maths Solutions Chapter 3 Pair of Linear Equations in Two Variables Ex 3.2 2
The lines l1 and l2 intersects at the point (3, 7)
∴ The solution of the pair of linear equations is : x = 3, y = 7
⇒ Number of boys = 3
and number of girls = 7
Let the cost of a pencil = ₹ x
and cost of a pen = ₹ y
Since, cost of 5 pencils + Cost of 7 pens = ₹ 50
5 x + 7y = 50 … (1)
Also, cost of 7 pencils + cost of 5 pens = ₹ 46
7x + 5y = 46 …. (2)
Now, from equation (1), we have

And from equation (2), we have
MP Board Class 10th Maths Solutions Chapter 3 Pair of Linear Equations in Two Variables Ex 3.2 4
Plotting the points (10, 0), (3, 5) and (-4, 10), we get a straight line l1 and plotting the points (8, -2), (3, 5) and (0, 9.2) we get a straight line l2.

These two straight lines intersects at (3, 5).
∴ Cost of a pencil = ₹ 3 and cost of a pen = ₹ 5.

So, lines are intersecting i.e., they intersect at a point.
∴ It is consistent pair of equations.

(ii) For 2x – 3y = 8, 4x – 6y = 9, 2x – 3y – 8 = 0 and 4x – 6y – 9 = 0

So, lines are parallel i.e., the given pair of linear equations has no solution.
∴ It is inconsistent pair of equations.

(iii)

⇒ The given pair of linear equations has exactly one solution.
∴ It is a consistent pair of equations.

(iv)

So, lines l1 and l2 are coinciding. i.e., They have infinitely many solutions.

(ii) For, x – y = 8,
3x – 3y = 16
⇒ x – y – 8 = 0
and 3x – 3y = 16
MP Board Class 10th Maths Solutions Chapter 3 Pair of Linear Equations in Two Variables Ex 3.2 16
so, line are parallel
∴ The pair of linear equations are inconsistent

Question 6.
Given the linear equation 2x + 3y – 8 = 0, write another linear equation in two variables such that the geometrical representation of the pair so formed is:
(i) intersecting lines

Solution:
Let the pair of linear equations be 2x + 3y – 8 = 0

(i) For intersecting lines, we have:
MP Board Class 10th Maths Solutions Chapter 3 Pair of Linear Equations in Two Variables Ex 3.2 21
∴ We can have a2 = 3, b2 = 2 and c2 = – 7
∴ The required equation can be 3x + 2y – 7 = 0

(ii) For parallel lines, \(\frac{a_{1}}{a_{2}}=\frac{b_{1}}{b_{2}} \neq \frac{c_{1}}{c_{2}}\)
∴ Any line parallel to 2x + 3y – 8 = 0, can be taken as 2x + 3y -12 = 0

(iii) For coincident lines, \(\frac{a_{1}}{a_{2}}=\frac{b_{1}}{b_{2}}=\frac{c_{1}}{c_{2}}\)
∴ Any line parallel to 2x + 3y – 8 = 0 can be 2(2x + 3y – 8 = 0)
⇒ 4x + 6y – 16 = 0
