(A) 50 + n

(B) 50n

(C) 50 + n

(D) 50 – n

Solution:

(B)

Number of matchsticks in one box = 50

∴ The number of matchsticks required to fill n boxes = 50 × n = 50n

(A) (5 – x) years

(B) (5 + x) years

(C) (x – 5) years

(D) (5 + x) years

(B) x – 1

(C) x – 1 = 0

(D) x + 1 > 0

Solution:

(C)

Equation means an expression with a variable, constants and the sign of equality (=).

∴ x – 1 = 0 is an equation.

Question 5.

If x takes the value 2, then the value of x + 10 is

(A) 20

(B) 12

(C) 5

(D) 8

Solution:

(B)

When we put x = 2 in the given expression x + 10, we get

(A) (x + 6) metres

(B) (x ÷ 6) metres

(C) (x – 6) metres

(D) (6 ÷ x) metres

Solution:

(B)

Perimeter of a regular hexagon = 6 × Length of each side

⇒ x m = 6 × Length of each side

⇒ Length of each side = (x ÷ 6) m

Question 7.

Which of the following equations has x = 2 as a solution?

(A) x+ 2 = 5

(B) x- 2 = 0

(C) 2x + 1 = 0

(D) x + 3 = 6

Solution:

(B)

(A) Putting x = 2 in x + 2, we get 2 + 2 = 4 ≠ 5

(B) Putting x = 2 in x – 2, we get 2 – 2 = 0

(C) Putting x = 2 in 2x + 1, we get 2 × 2 + 1 = 5 ≠ 0

(D) Putting x = 2 in x + 3, we get 2 + 3 = 5 + 6

Thus, the above conditions shows that x = 2 is the solution of x – 2 = 0

Question 8.

(A) x + y = y + x

(B) x + y > x

(C) x – y = y – x

(D) x × y = y × x

Solution:

(A)

x + y = y + x shows that addition is commutative.

Question 9.

Which of the following equations does not have a solution in integers?

(A) x + 1 = 1

(B) x – 1 = 3

(C) 2x + 1 = 6

(D) 1 – x = 5

Solution:

(C)

(A) x + 1 = 1

⇒ x + 1 – 1 = 1 – 1

[Subtracting 1 from both sides]

⇒ x = 0, which is an integer

(B) x – 1 = 3

⇒ x – 1 + 1 = 3 + 1 [Adding 1 to both sides]

⇒ x = 4, which is an integer.

(C) 2x + 1 = 6

⇒ 2x + 1 – 1 = 6 – 1

[Subtracting 1 from both sides]

⇒ 2x = 5

\(\frac{2 x}{2}=\frac{5}{2}\)

[Dividing both sides by 2]

⇒ \(x=\frac{5}{2}\), which is not a integer

(D) 1 – x = 5

⇒ 1 – x – 1 = 5 – 1

[Subtracting 1 from both sides]

⇒ -x = 4

⇒ -(-x) = -4

[Multiplying both sides by (-1)]

⇒ x = -4, which is an integer.

Thus, the above conditions show that equation 2x + 1 = 6 does not have a solution in integers.

(A) x – 1700

(B) x – 1900

(C) x + 200

(D) x – 2100

Solution:

(A)

Amount of money Savitri has = Rs. x.

Amount of money spent by her

= Rs. (1000 + 500 + 400) = Rs. 1900

Amount of money received by her as a gift = Rs. 200

∴ Amount of money left with her = Rs. (x – 1900 + 200)

= Rs. (x – 1700)

Solution:

3

We have given, 7x + 4 = 25

⇒ 7x + 4 – 4 = 25 – 4

[Subtracting 4 from both sides]

⇒ 7x = 21

⇒ \(\frac{7 x}{7}=\frac{21}{7}\)

[Dividing both sides by 7]

⇒ x = 3

Question 28.

(iv) Her grandfather’s age = 8x years

Question 88.

If m is a whole number less than 5, complete the table and by inspection of the table, find the solution of the equation 2m – 5 = -1 :

m | |||||

2m – 5 |

For m = 0,

2m – 5 = 2 × 0 – 5 = 0 – 5 = -5

For m = 1,

2m – 5 = 2 × 1 – 5 = 2 – 5 = -3

For m = 2,

2m – 5 = 2 × 2 – 5 = 4 – 5 = – 1

For m = 3,

2m – 5 = 2 × 3 – 5 = 6 – 5 = 1

For m = 4

2m – 5 = 2 × 4 – 5 = 8 – 5 = 3

m | 0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 |

2m – 5 | -5 | -3 | -1 | 1 | 3 |

Thus, the solution of the equation 2m – 5 = -1 is m = 2.

Question 89.

A class with p students has planned a picnic. Rs. 50 per student is collected, out of which Rs. 1800 is paid in advance for transport. How much money is left with them to spend on other items?

Solution:

Number of students in the class = p

Total amount collected from p students = Rs. 50p

Amount paid in advance for transport = Rs. 1800

∴ Amount left with them = Rs. (50p – 1800)

Question 90.

In a village, there are 8 water tanks to collect rain water. On a particular day, x litres of rain water is collected per tank. If 100 litres of water was already there in one of the tanks, what is the total amount of water in the tanks on that day?

Solution:

Number of water tanks = 8

Rain water collected by each tank = x litres

∴ Rain water collected by 8 tanks = 8x litres

But 100 litres of water was already there in one of the tanks.

∴ Total amount of water in the tanks = (8x + 100) litres.

Question 91.

What is the area of square whose side is m cm?

Solution:

We have given, side of a square = m cm

Area of the square = side × side = m × m sq cm

Question 92.

Perimeter of a triangle is found by using the formula P = a + b + c, where a, b and c are the sides of the triangle. Write the rule that is expressed by this formula in words.

Solution:

Perimeter of a triangle is the sum of all its sides.

Question 93.

Perimeter of a rectangle is found by using the formula P = 2 (l + w), where l and w are respectively the length and breadth of the rectangle. Write the rule that is expressed by this formula in words.

Solution:

Perimeter of a rectangle is twice the sum of its length and breadth.

Question 94.

On my last birthday, I weighed 40 kg. If I put on m kg of weight after a year, what is my present weight?

Solution:

Present weight = weight on last birthday + weight put on after a year

= 40 kg + m kg

= (40 + m) kg

Question 95.

Length and breadth of a bulletin board are r cm and t cm, respectively.

(i) What will be the length (in cm) of the aluminium strip required to frame the board, if 10 cm extra strip is required to fix it properly.

(ii) If x nails are used to repair one board, how many nails will be required to repair 15 such boards?

(iii) If 500 sq cm extra cloth per board is required to cover the edges, what will be the total area of the cloth required to cover 8 such boards?

(iv) What will be the expenditure for making 23 boards if the carpenter charges Rs. x per board.

Solution:

We have given, length of the board = r cm and breadth = t cm.

(i) The length of aluminium strip to frame the board = Perimeter of the board

= 2(length + breadth)

= 2(r + t) cm

But 10 cm extra strip is required to fix it properly.

∴ Total length of the aluminium strip = 2(r + t) cm + 10 cm.

(ii) Number of nails required to repair 1 board = x.

∴ Number of nails required to repair 15 boards = 15 × x = 15x.

(iii) Area of the cloth required for 1 board = Area of the board

= length × breadth

= r cm × t cm

= (rt) sq cm

Area of the cloth required for 8 boards

= 8 × (rt) sq cm

= 8rt sq cm

But 500 sq cm extra cloth per board is required to cover the edges.

∴ For 8 boards we need 8 × 500 sq cm

= 4000 sq cm extra cloth.

Thus, the total area of the cloth required

= (8rt + 4000) sq cm

(iv) The carpenter charges for 1 board = Rs. x.

∴ The carpenter charges for 23 boards

= Rs. (23 × x) = Rs. 23x

Question 96.

Sunita is half the age of her mother Geeta. Find their ages

(i) after 4 years.

(ii) before 3 years.

Solution:

Let the present age of Sunita be x years.

The present age of her mother Geeta = 2(Sunita’s present age) = 2x years.

(i) After 4 years,

Sunita’s age = (x + 4) years

Geeta’s age = (2x + 4) years

Before 3 years,

Sunita’s age = (x – 3) years

Geeta’s age = (2x – 3) years.

Question 97.

Match the items of Column I with that of Column II:

Solution:

(i) ➝ (B), (ii) ➝ (E), (iii) ➝ (C), (iv) ➝ (C), (v) ➝(A)

(i) The number of corners of a quadrilateral is 4, i.e., a constant.

(ii) The variable in the equation 2p + 3 = 5 is p.

(iii) We have given, x + 2 = 3

⇒ x + 2 – 2 = 3 – 2

[Subtracting 2 from both sides]

⇒ x = 1, which is the solution of the given equation.

(iv) We have given, 2p + 3 = 5

⇒ 2p + 3- 3 = 5- 3

[Subtracting 3 from both sides]

⇒ 2p = 2

⇒ \(\frac{2 p}{2}=\frac{2}{2}\)

[Dividing both sides by 2]

⇒ p = 1, which is the solution of the given equation.

(v) Equality sign (=) is used in an equation.
