# Form the pair of

Answer :

For representing the situation graphically and algebraically, we need to form linear equations

(i) Let number of girls = x

Let number of boys = y

According to the question, Total no of students is equal to 10,

⇒ ................................eq(i)

Now we will find different points to plot the equation. We can take any value of y and put in eq (i) to obtain the value of x at that pointPutting y = 4, 5 and 6. we get,

at x = 4X = 10 – 4 = 6

at x = 5X = 10 – 5 = 5

at x = 6X = 10 – 6 = 4

Number of girls is 4 more than number of boys …………Given

So,

x = y + 4

⇒ y = x - 4 ................................(ii)

Putting x = 3 ,5 and 7 we get

at x = 3

y = 3 - 4 = -1

at x = 4

y = 5 - 4 = 1

at x = 7

y = 7 - 4 = 3

Graphical representation :

Plotting the points obtain on graph we get,

As, both lines intersect each other at (7, 3)

Solution of this pair of equation is (7, 3)

i.e.

No of girls, x = 7

No of boys, y = 3

(ii)

Let cost of one pencil = Rs. X

Let cost of one pen = Rs. Y

According to the question, 5 pencils and 7 pens together cost Rs 50

5x + 7y = 50

⇒5x = 50 - 7y

⇒

Putting value of y = 0 , 5 , 10 we get,

x = 10 - 0 = 10

Now,

7 pencils and 5 pens together cost Rs. 46

7x + 5y = 46

⇒ 5y = 46 – 7x

Putting x = -2 , 3 , 8 we get,

Graphical Representation:

Plotting the points obtain on graph we get,As, both lines intersect each other at (3, 5)

Solution of this pair of equation is (3, 5)

i.e.

cost of pencil, x = 3

cost of pen, y = 5
