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
Answer:(C) 6 and 36
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
Answer:(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
If x = a, y = b is the solution of the equations x – y = 2 and x + y = 4, then the values of a and b are, respectively
(A) 3 and 5
(B) 5 and 3
(C) 3 and 1
(D) –1 and –3
Answer : (C)
Solution:
Equation are x – y = 2 … (1)
x + y = 4 … (2)
Add equation (1) and (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
Answer: B, D
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

One equation of a pair of dependent linear equations is –5x + 7y = 2. The second equation can be
(A) 10x + 14y + 4 = 0
(B) –10x – 14y + 4 = 0
(C) –10x + 14y + 4 = 0
(D) 10x – 14y = –4
Answer: D
Solution:
Given equation is
–5x + 7y – 2 = 0
a_{1} = –5, b_{1} = 7, c_{1} = –2
For dependent linear equation
a_{2 }= –5k, b_{2} = 7k, c_{2} = –2k
Put k = 2
a_{2} = –10, b_{2} = 14, c_{2} = –4
The revived equation is of the type a_{2}x + b_{2}y + c_{2} = 0
Put a_{2 }= – 10, b_{2} = 14, c_{2}= –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
Answer: D
Solution:
Equations are
cx – y – 2 = 0, 6x – 2y – 3 = 0
In equation
cx – y – 2 = 0
a_{1} = c, b_{1} = –1, c_{1} = –2
In equation
6x – 2y – 3 = 0
a_{2} = 6, b_{2} = –2, c_{2} = –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.
