MATHS CBSE IX Chapter 4 -Exercise 4 :2 Linear Equations in two  - Answer of question on Page 70 Answer for  Q1. Q2. Q3,Q4

 
Question 1
Which one of the following options is true, and why?
y = 3x + 5 has
(i) a unique solution, (ii) only two solutions, (iii) infinitely many solutions
 
ANSWER
y = 3x + 5 is a linear equation in two variables and it has infinite possible solutions. As for every value of x, there will be a value of ysatisfying the above equation and vice-versa.
Hence, the correct answer is (iii)
 
 
 
Question 2:
Write four solutions for each of the following equations:
(i) 2x + y = 7 (ii) πx + y = 9 (iii) x = 4y
 
ANSWER
(i) 2x + y = 7
For x = 0,
2(0) + = 7
⇒ = 7
Therefore, (0, 7) is a solution of this equation.
For = 1,
2(1) + y = 7
⇒ y = 5
Therefore, (1, 5) is a solution of this equation.
For x = −1,
2(−1) + y = 7
⇒ y = 9
Therefore, (−1, 9) is a solution of this equation.
For = 2,
2(2) + y = 7
y = 3
Therefore, (2, 3) is a solution of this equation.
(ii) πx + y = 9
For x = 0,
π(0) + = 9
⇒ = 9
Therefore, (0, 9) is a solution of this equation.
For x = 1,
π(1) + = 9
= 9 − π
Therefore, (1, 9 − π) is a solution of this equation.
For x = 2,
π(2) + = 9
⇒ = 9 − 2π
Therefore, (2, 9 −2π) is a solution of this equation.
For x = −1,
π(−1) + = 9
⇒ = 9 + π
⇒ (−1, 9 + π) is a solution of this equation.
(iii) x = 4y
For x = 0,
0 = 4y
⇒ = 0
Therefore, (0, 0) is a solution of this equation.
For = 1,
x = 4(1) = 4
Therefore, (4, 1) is a solution of this equation.
For y = −1,
x = 4(−1)
⇒ x = −4
Therefore, (−4, −1) is a solution of this equation.
For x = 2,
2 = 4y
Therefore, is a solution of this equation.
 
 
Question 3
 
Check which of the following are solutions of the equation x − 2= 4 and which are not:
(i) (0, 2 (ii) (2, 0) (iii) (4, 0)
(iv) (v) (1, 1)
 
ANSWER
(i) (0, 2)
Putting x = 0 and y = 2 in the L.H.S of the given equation,
− 2y = 0 − 2×2 = − 4 ≠ 4
L.H.S ≠ R.H.S
Therefore, (0, 2) is not a solution of this equation.
(ii) (2, 0)
Putting x = 2 and y = 0 in the L.H.S of the given equation,
− 2y = 2 − 2 × 0 = 2 ≠ 4
L.H.S ≠ R.H.S
Therefore, (2, 0) is not a solution of this equation.
(iii) (4, 0)
Putting x = 4 and y = 0 in the L.H.S of the given equation,
− 2= 4 − 2(0)
= 4 = R.H.S
Therefore, (4, 0) is a solution of this equation.
(iv)
Putting  and in the L.H.S of the given equation,
L.H.S ≠ R.H.S
Therefore, is not a solution of this equation.
(v) (1, 1)
Putting x = 1 and y = 1 in the L.H.S of the given equation,
− 2y = 1 − 2(1) = 1 − 2 = − 1 ≠ 4
L.H.S ≠ R.H.S
Therefore, (1, 1) is not a solution of this equation
 
 
 
Question 4:

Find the value of k, if x = 2, y = 1 is a solution of the equation 2+ 3y = k.

 
ANSWER
 
Putting x = 2 and y = 1 in the given equation,
2+ 3y = k
⇒ 2(2) + 3(1) = k
⇒ 4 + 3 = k
⇒ k = 7
Therefore, the value of k is 7

ANSWER
It can be observed that point (2, 14) satisfies the equation 7x − y = 0 and
x − y + 12 = 0.
Therefore, 7x − y = 0 and x − y + 12 = 0 are two lines passing through point (2, 14).
As it is known that through one point, infinite number of lines can pass through, therefore, there are infinite lines of such type passing through the given point.

Question 4:

The taxi fare in a city is as follows: For the first kilometre, the fares is Rs 8 and for the subsequent distance it is Rs 5 per km. Taking the distance covered as x km and total fare as Rs y, write a linear equation for this information, and draw its graph.

 




ANSWER

 

Total distance covered = x km
Fare for 1st kilometre = Rs 8
Fare for the rest of the distance = Rs (x − 1) 5
Total fare = Rs [8 + (− 1) 5]
= 8 + 5x − 5
= 5x + 3
5x − + 3 = 0
It can be observed that point (0, 3) and satisfies the above equation. Therefore, these are the solutions of this equation.

The graph of this equation is constructed as follows.

 

Here, it can be seen that variable x and y are representing the distance covered and the fare paid for that distance respectively and these quantities may not be negative. Hence, only those values of x and y which are lying in the 1st quadrant will be considered.

ANSWER

Points on the given line are (−1, 1), (0, 0), and (1, −1).
It can be observed that the coordinates of the points of the graph satisfy the equation x + y = 0. Therefore, x + y = 0 is the equation corresponding to the graph as shown in the first figure.
Hence, (ii) is the correct answer.

Points on the given line are (−1, 3), (0, 2), and (2, 0). It can be observed that the coordinates of the points of the graph satisfy the equation y = − x + 2.
Therefore, = − x + 2 is the equation corresponding to the graph shown in the second figure.
Hence, (iii) is the correct answer.
 
 

Question 6:

If the work done by a body on application of a constant force is directly proportional to the distance travelled by the body, express this in the form of an equation in two variables and draw the graph of the same by taking the constant force as 5 units. Also read from the graph the work done when the distance travelled by the body is

(i) 2 units (ii) 0 units

 

 ANSWER
 
 Let the distance travelled and the work done by the body be x and y respectively.
Work done ∝ distance travelled

y ∝ x

y = kx

Where, k is a constant

If constant force is 5 units, then work done y = 5x

It can be observed that point (1, 5) and (−1, −5) satisfy the above equation. Therefore, these are the solutions of this equation. The graph of this equation is constructed as follows.

(i)From the graphs, it can be observed that the value of corresponding to x = 2 is 10. This implies that the work done by the body is 10 units when the distance travelled by it is 2 units.
(ii) From the graphs, it can be observed that the value of corresponding to x = 0 is 0. This implies that the work done by the body is 0 units when the distance travelled by it is 0 unit.

 

 Let the distance travelled and the work done by the body be x and y respectively.

Work done ∝ distance travelled

y ∝ x

y = kx

Where, k is a constant

If constant force is 5 units, then work done y = 5x

It can be observed that point (1, 5) and (−1, −5) satisfy the above equation. Therefore, these are the solutions of this equation. The graph of this equation is constructed as follows.

(i)From the graphs, it can be observed that the value of corresponding to x = 2 is 10. This implies that the work done by the body is 10 units when the distance travelled by it is 2 units.

(ii) From the graphs, it can be observed that the value of corresponding to x = 0 is 0. This implies that the work done by the body is 0 units when the distance travelled by it is 0 unit.

 

 

Question 7:
Yamini and Fatima, two students of Class IX of a school, together contributed Rs 100 towards the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund to help the earthquake victims. Write a linear equation which satisfies this data. (You may take their contributions as Rs x and Rs y.) Draw the graph of the same.

 

 

 

  ANSWER

 Let the amount that Yamini and Fatima contributed be x and y respectively towards the Prime Minister’s Relief fund.
Amount contributed by Yamini + Amount contributed by Fatima = 100
y = 100
It can be observed that (100, 0) and (0, 100) satisfy the above equation. Therefore, these are the solutions of the above equation. The graph is constructed as follows.

Here, it can be seen that variable x and y are representing the amount contributed by Yamini and Fatima respectively and these quantities cannot be negative. Hence, only those values of x and y which are lying in the 1st quadrant will be considered.

(v) Is there a temperature which is numerically the same in both Fahrenheit and Celsius? If yes, find it.

 

 

 ANSWER

 (i)
It can be observed that points (0, 32) and (−40, −40) satisfy the given equation. Therefore, these points are the solutions of this equation.
The graph of the above equation is constructed as follows.
(ii) Temperature = 30°C
Therefore, the temperature in Fahrenheit is 86°F.
(iii) Temperature = 95°F
Therefore, the temperature in Celsius is 35°C.
(iv)
If C = 0°C, then
Therefore, if C = 0°C, then F = 32°F
If F = 0°F, then
Therefore, if F = 0°F, then C = −17.8°C
(v)
Here, F = C
Yes, there is a temperature, −40°, which is numerically the same in both Fahrenheit and Celsius.
