**LEVEL-1**

**Q1.Which of the following pairs of linear equations are consistent/inconsistent?**

**(i) x + y = 5, 2x + 2y = 10****Solution:**

(i) x + y = 5; 2x + 2y = 10

a_{1}/a_{2} = 1/2

b_{1}/b_{2} = 1/2 and

c_{1}/c_{2} = 5/10 = 1/2

Hence, a_{1}/a_{2} = b_{1}/b_{2} = c_{1}/c_{2}

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:** a_{1}/a_{2} =1/2

b_{1}/b_{2}=1/2

c_{1}/c_{2}=1/2

Here a_{1}/a_{2} = b_{1}/b_{2}= c_{1}/c_{2}

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

**LEVEL-2 ( 2 MARKS EACH)**

**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**

**Solution:**

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.
