Q1.Which of the following pairs of linear equations are consistent/inconsistent?
(i) x + y = 5, 2x + 2y = 10
(i) x + y = 5; 2x + 2y = 10
a1/a2 = 1/2
b1/b2 = 1/2 and
c1/c2 = 5/10 = 1/2
Hence, a1/a2 = b1/b2 = c1/c2
Therefore, these linear equations are coincident pair of lines and thus have infinite number of possible solutions. Hence, the pair of linear equations is consistent.

Q2. The coach of a cricket team buys 3 bats and 6 balls for Rs 3900. Later, she buys another bat and 3 more balls of the same kind for Rs 1300. Represent this situation algebraically.
Solution: Let cost of one bat = Rs x
Cost of one ball = Rs y
3 bats and 6 balls for Rs 3900 So that
3x + 6y = 3900
Given that she buys another bat and 2 more balls of the same kind for Rs 1300
So, we get
x + 2y = 1300

Q3.Find the number of solutions of the following pair of linear equations:
x + 2y -8=0,2x+ 4y=16
Solution: a1/a2 =1/2
Here a1/a2 = b1/b2= c1/c2
Therefore, the equations have infinite number of solutions.

Q4. Two lines are given to be parallel. The equation of one of the lines is 4x+ 3y=14. Find the equation of the second line.
Solution: 8x+6y=28


Q1. Solve the following pair of linear equations by the substitution method.
x + y = 14 ; x – y = 4
Solution: x + y = 14 ... (i)
x – y = 4 ... (ii)
From equation (i), we get
x = 14 - y ... (iii)
Putting this value in equation (ii), we get
(14 - y) - y = 4
14 - 2y = 4
10 = 2y
y = 5 ... (iv)
Putting this in equation (iii), we get
x = 9
x = 9 and y = 5

Q2. For which value of k will the following pair of linear equations have no solution?
3x + y = 1 (2k –1)x + (k –1)y = 2k + 1
3x + y -1 = 0
(2k –1)x + (k –1)y - (2k + 1) = 0
a1/a2 = 3/2k-1
b1/b2 = 1/k-1 and
c1/c2 = -1/-2k-1 = 1/2k+1
For no solutions,
a1/a2 = b1/b2 ≠ c1/c2
3/2k-1 = 1/k-1 ≠ 1/2k+1
3/2k-1 = 1/k-1
3k - 3 = 2k - 1
k = 2
Hence, for k = 2, the given equation has no solution.
