(i) x is a natural number
(ii) x is an integer.
Answer :**

The given inequality is 24x < 100.

24x < 100

⇒ 24x/24 < 100/24 [Dividing both sides by same positive number]

⇒ x < 25/6

(i) It is evident that 1, 2, 3, and 4 are the only natural numbers less than 25/6.

Thus, when

*x*is a natural number, the solutions of the given inequality are 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Hence, in this case, the solution set is {1, 2, 3, 4}.

(ii) The integers less than 25/6 are …–3, –2, –1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4.

Thus, when

*x*is an integer, the solutions of the given inequality are …–3, –2, –1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4.

Hence, in this case, the solution set is {…–3, –2, –1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4}.

**21. Ravi obtained 70 and 75 marks in first two unit test. Find the minimum marks he should get in the third test to have an average of at least 60 marks.
Answer :**

Let x be the marks obtained by Ravi in the third unit test.

Since the student should have an average of at least 60 marks,

(70 + 75 + x)/3 ≥ 60

⇒ 145 + x ≥ 180

⇒ x ≥ 180 - 145

⇒ x ≥ 35

Thus, the student must obtain a minimum of 35 marks to have an average of at least 60 marks.

**Question. To receive Grade ‘A’ in a course, one must obtain an average of 90 marks or more in five examinations (each of 100 marks). If Sunita’s marks in first four examinations are 87, 92, 94 and 95, find minimum marks that Sunita must obtain in fifth examination to get grade ‘A’ in the course.
Answer :**

Let

*x*be the marks obtained by Sunita in the fifth examination.

In order to receive grade ‘A’ in the course, she must obtain an average of 90 marks or more in five examinations.

Therefore

⇒ 368 + x ≥ 450

⇒ x ≥ 450 - 368

⇒ x ≥ 82

Thus, Sunita must obtain greater than or equal to 82 marks in the fifth examination.

**Question. Find all pairs of consecutive odd positive integers both of which are smaller than 10 such that their sum is more than 11.
Answer :**

Let

*x*be the smaller of the two consecutive odd positive integers. Then, the other integer is

*x*+ 2.

Since both the integers are smaller than 10,

*x*+ 2 < 10

⇒

*x*< 10 – 2

⇒

*x*< 8

**…(i)**

Also, the sum of the two integers is more than 11.

∴

*x*+ (

*x*+ 2) > 11

⇒ 2

*x*+ 2 > 11

⇒ 2

*x*> 11 – 2

⇒ 2

*x*> 9

⇒ x > 9/2

⇒ x > 4.5

**…(ii)**

From (i) and (ii), we obtain 4.5 < x < 8.

Since

*x*is an odd number,

*x*can take the values, 5 and 7.

Thus, the required possible pairs are (5, 7) and (7, 9).

**Question. Find all pairs of consecutive even positive integers, both of which are larger than 5 such that their sum is less than 23.
Answer :**

Let

*x*be the smaller of the two consecutive even positive integers. Then, the other integer is

*x*+ 2.

Since both the integers are larger than 5,

*x*> 5

**...(1)**

Also, the sum of the two integers is less than 23.

*x*+ (

*x*+ 2) < 23

⇒ 2

*x*+ 2 < 23

⇒ 2

*x*< 23 – 2

⇒ 2

*x*< 21

⇒ x < 21/2

⇒ x < 10.5

**...(2)**

From (1) and (2), we obtain 5 < x < 10.5 .

Since x is an even number, x can take the values, 6, 8, and 10.

Thus, the required possible pairs are (6, 8), (8, 10) and (10, 12).

**Question. The longest side of a triangle is 3 times the shortest side and the third side is 2 cm shorter than the longest side. If the perimeter of the triangle is at least 61 cm, find the minimum length of the shortest side.
Answer :**

Let the length of the shortest side of the triangle be

*x*cm.

Then, length of the longest side = 3

*x*cm

Length of the third side = (3

*x*– 2) cm

Since the perimeter of the triangle is at least 61 cm,

x cm + 3x cm + (3x - 2) cm ≥ 61 cm

⇒ 7x - 2 ≥ 61

⇒ 7x ≥ 61 + 2

⇒ 7x ≥ 63

⇒ 7x/7 ≥ 63/7

⇒ x ≥ 9

Thus, the minimum length of the shortest side is 9 cm.

**Question. A man wants to cut three lengths from a single piece of board of length 91 cm. The second length is to be 3 cm longer than the shortest and the third length is to be twice as long as the shortest. What are the possible lengths of the shortest board if the third piece is to be at least 5 cm longer than the second?
[Hint: If x is the length of the shortest board, then x, (x + 3) and 2x are the lengths of the second and third piece, respectively. Thus, x = (x + 3) + 2x ≤ 91 and 2x ≥ (x + 3) + 5]
Answer :**

Let the length of the shortest piece be

*x*cm. Then, length of the second piece and the third piece are (

*x*+ 3) cm and 2

*x*cm respectively.

Since the three lengths are to be cut from a single piece of board of length 91 cm,

*x*cm + (

*x*+ 3) cm + 2

*x*cm ≤ 91 cm

⇒ 4

*x*+ 3 ≤ 91

⇒ 4

*x*≤ 91 – 3

⇒ 4

*x*≤ 88

⇒ 4x/4 ≤ 88/4

⇒ x ≤ 22

**...(1)**

Also, the third piece is at least 5 cm longer than the second piece.

∴ 2

*x*≥ (

*x*+ 3) + 5

⇒ 2

*x*≥

*x*+ 8

⇒

*x*≥ 8

**…(2)**

From (1) and (2), we obtain

8 ≤

*x*≤ 22

Thus, the possible length of the shortest board is greater than or equal to 8 cm but less than or equal to 22 cm.

Then, total mixture = (

*x*+ 640) litres

This resulting mixture is to be more than 4% but less than 6% boric acid.

∴2%

*x*+ 8% of 640 > 4% of (

And, 2%

*x*+ 8% of 640 < 6% of (

*x*+ 640)

2%

*x*+ 8% of 640 > 4% of (

*x*+ 640)

⇒ 5120 – 3840 < 6

*x*– 2

*x*

⇒ 1280 < 4

*x*

⇒ 320 <

Then, total mixture = (

*x*+ 1125) litres

It is evident that the amount of acid contained in the resulting mixture is 45% of 1125 litres.

This resulting mixture will contain more than 25% but less than 30% acid content.

∴30% of (1125 +

*x*) > 45% of 1125

And, 25% of (1125 +

*x*) < 45% of 1125

30% of (1125 +

*x*) > 45% of 1125
