Q. 205.0( 4 Votes )

# Check which of the following are linear equations in two variables:

(i) x^{2} – y = 2

(ii) x + y = 3

(iii) xy = 9

Answer :

A linear equation in two variables is of the form: ax + by + c = 0

(i) x^{2} – y = 2

There should not be any power other than one on variable.

So, it is not a linear equation.

(ii) x + y = 3

It can be writtenn in the form of ax + by + c = 0

(iii) xy = 9

This equation is not linear as (xy) can not be written together in linear equations.
