Q2.    Formulate the following problems as a pair of equations, and hence find their solutions:
                (i) Ritu can row downstream 20 km in 2 hours, and upstream 4 km in 2 hours. Find her speed of rowing in still water and the speed of the current.

Let the speed of Ritu in still water be x and speed of current be y, Let's solve this problem by using relative motion concept, the relative speed when they are going in the same direction (downstream)= x +y  the relative speed when they are going in the opposite direction (upstream)= x - y Now, As we know, Relative distance = Relative speed * time . So, According to the question, And, Now,...

Q1.    Solve the following pairs of equations by reducing them to a pair of linear equations:

                    (viii)    \\\frac{1}{3x + y} + \frac{1}{3x -y} = \frac{3}{4}\\ \frac{1}{2(3x+y)} - \frac{1}{2(3x -y)} = \frac{-1}{8}
