#### The father’s age is six times his son’s age. Four years hence, the age of the father will be four times his son’s age. The present ages, in years, of the son and the father are, respectively (A) 4 and 24 (B) 5 and 30 (C) 6 and 36 (D) 3 and 24

Solution:

According to questions at present father’s age is six times than son’s age.
Let son age = x
Father age = y
y = 6x … (1)
After 4 years Father’s age will be four times than son’s age. That is
y + 4 = 4 (x + 4)
y + 4 = 4x + 16
4x – y + 12 = 0 …(2)
Put y = 6x in equation (2)
4x – 6x + 12 = 0
+ 2x = + 12
x =  = 6
Put x = 6 in equation (1)
y = 6 (6) = 36
y = 36
Hence present age of father is 36 and son is 6.

#### Aruna has only Rs 1 and Rs 2 coins with her. If the total number of coins that she has is 50 and the amount of money with her is Rs 75, then the number of Rs 1 and Rs 2 coins are, respectively (A) 35 and 15 (B) 35 and 20 (C) 15 and 35 (D) 25 and 25

Solution:

Let Rs. 1 coins = x
Rs. 2 coins = y
As per the question:
x + y = 50 …(1)
x + 2y = 75 … (2)
Find value of x, y using elimination method.
x + y = 50
x + 2y = 75
y = 25              (subtract equation 1 from equation 2)
put y = 25 in equation (1)
x + 25 = 50
x = 25
x = 25, y = 25
Hence, Rs. 1 coins = 25
Rs. 2 coins = 25

Solution:

Equation are    x – y = 2 … (1)
x + y = 4 … (2)
x – y = 2
x + y = 4
2x = 6
x = 3
Put x = 3 in equation (2)
3 + y = 4
y = 4 – 3
y = 1
it is given that a = x, b = y
Hence a = 3, b = 1

#### A pair of linear equations which has a unique solution x = 2, y = –3 is (A) x + y = –1 ; 2x – 3y = –5 (B) 2x + 5y = –11 ;  4x + 10y = –22 (C) 2x – y = 1 ; 3x + 2y = 0 (D) x– 4y –14 = 0 ; 5x – y – 13 = 0

Solution:

A pair which have unique solution x = 2, y = –3 will satisfy L.H.S. = R.H.S. if we put x = 2 and y = –3
Put x = 2, y = –3 in option (A)
x + y = –1        ;           2x – 3y = –5
2 – 3 = –1        ;           2(2) – 3 (–3) = –5
–1 = –1 (True) ;           4 + 9 = –5
13 = – 5 (False)
Put x = 2, y = –3 in option (B)
2x + 5y = –11  ;           4x + 10y = –22
2(2) + 5(–3) = –11  ;    4(2) + 10 (–3) = –22
4 – 15 = –11    ;           8 – 30 = –22
–11 = –11 (True)         –22 = –22 (True)
Put x = 2, y = – 3 in option (C)
2x – y = 1        ;           3x + 2y = 0
2(2) – (–3) = 1 ;           3(2) + 3 (–3) = 0
4 + 3 = 1          ;           6 – 6 = 0
7 = 1 (False)    ;           0 = 0 (True)
Put x = 2, y = – 3 in option (D)
x – 4y – 14 = 0            ;           5x – y – 13 = 0
2 – 4 (–3) – 14 = 0      ;           5(2) – (–3) – 13 = 0
2 + 12 – 14 = 0            ;           10 + 3 – 13 = 0
0 = 0 (True)                 ;           13 – 13 = 0
0 = 0 (True)
By putting the value of x = 2, y = –3 in A, B, C, D; two options B, D satisfy L.H.S = R.H.S
Hence both (B, D) are correct

Solution:

Given equation is
–5x + 7y – 2 = 0
a1 = –5, b1 = 7, c1 = –2
For dependent linear equation

a2 = –5k, b2 = 7k, c2 = –2k
Put k = 2
a2 = –10, b2 = 14, c2 = –4
The revived equation is of the type a2x + b2y + c2 = 0
Put a2 = – 10, b2 = 14, c2= –4
–10x + 14y – 4 = 0
10x – 14 y = –4

#### The value of c for which the pair of linear equations cx – y = 2 and 6x – 2y = 3 will have infinitely many solutions is (A) 3 (B) – 3 (C) –12 (D) no value

Solution:

Equations are
cx – y – 2 = 0, 6x – 2y – 3 = 0
In equation
cx – y – 2 = 0
a1 = c, b1 = –1, c1 = –2
In equation
6x – 2y – 3 = 0
a2 = 6, b2 = –2, c2 = –3
Since equations have infinitely many solutions
Hence

Here we find that  i.e., equations are inconsistent

So, we can not assign any value to c.

Solution:

Equations are
3x + 2ky = 2
2x + 5y + 1 = 0
In equation
3x + 2ky – 2 = 0
a1 = 3, b1 = 2k, c1 = –2
In equation
2x + 5y + 1 = 0
a2 = 2, b2 = 5, c2 = 1

Since lines are parallel hence

……(1)

( from equation (1))

Hence the value of k is  .

#### For what value of k, do the equations 3x – y + 8 = 0 and 6x – ky = –16 represent coincident lines? (A) (B) – (C) 2 (D) –2

Solution:

Equations are
3x – y + 8 = 0
6x – ky + 16 = 0
In equation
3x – y + 8 = 0
a1 = 3, b1 = –1, c1 = 8
