## Tamilnadu Samacheer Kalvi 9th Maths Solutions Chapter 3 Algebra Ex 3.10

Question 1.
Draw the graph for the following:
(i) y = 2x
Solution:
When x = -2, y = 2 (-2) = -4
When x = 0, y = 2 (0) = 0
When x = 2, y = 2 (2) = 4
When x = 3, y = 2 (3) = 6

Plot the points (-2, -4) (0, 0) (2, 4) and (3, 6) in the graph sheet we get a straight line.

(ii) y = 4x – 1
Solution:
When x = – 1; y = 4 (-1) -1 ⇒ y = -5
When x = 0; y = 4 (0) – 1 = 0 – 1 ⇒ y = -1
When x = 2; y = 4 (2) -1 = 8 – 1 ⇒ y = l

(iii) y = ($$\frac{3}{2}$$)x + 3
Solution:
When x = -2;
y = $$\frac{3}{2}$$(-2) + 3
y = -3 + 3 = 0
when x = 0;
y = $$\frac{3}{2}$$(0) + 3
y = 3
when x = 2;
y = $$\frac{3}{2}$$(2) + 3
y = 3 + 3
= 6

Plot the points (-2, 0) (0, 3) and (2, 6) in the graph sheet we get a straight line.

(iv) 3x + 2y = 14
Solution:
y = $$\frac{-3x+14}{2}$$
y = – $$\frac{3}{2}$$x + 7
when x = -2
y = –$$\frac{3}{2}$$(-2) + 7 = 10
when x = 0
y = –$$\frac{3}{2}$$(0) + 7 = 7
when x = 2
y = –$$\frac{3}{2}$$(2) + 7 = 4

Plot the points (-2, 10) (0, 7) and (2, 4) in the graph sheet we get a straight line.

Question 2.
Solve graphically (i) x + y = 7, x – y = 3
Solution:
x + y = 7
y = 7 – x

Plot the points (-2, 9), (0, 7) and (3, 4) in the graph sheet
x – y = 3
-y = -x + 3
y = x – 3

Plot the points (-2, -5), (0, -3) and (4, 1) in the same graph sheet.

The point of intersection is (5, 2) of lines (1) and (2).
The solution set is (5,2).

(ii) 3x + 2y = 4; 9x + 6y – 12 = 0
Solution:
2y = -3x + 4
y = $$\frac{-3x+4}{2}$$
= $$\frac{-3}{2}$$x + 2

Plot the points (-2, 5), (0, 2) and (2, -1) in the graph sheet
9x + 6y= 12 (÷3)
3x + 2y = 4
2y = $$\frac{-3x+4}{2}$$
= $$\frac{-3}{2}$$x + 2

Plot the points (-2, 5), (0, 2) and (2, -1) the same graph sheet

Here both the equations are identical, but in different form.
Their solution is same.
This equations have an infinite number of solution.

(iii) $$\frac{x}{2}$$ + $$\frac{y}{4}$$ = 1: $$\frac{x}{2}$$ + $$\frac{y}{4}$$ = 2
Solution:
$$\frac{x}{2}$$ + $$\frac{y}{4}$$ = 1
multiply by 4
2x + y = 4
y = -2x + 4

Plot the points (-3, 10), (-1, 6), (0, 4) and (2, 0) in the graph sheet
$$\frac{x}{2}$$ + $$\frac{y}{4}$$ = 2
multiply by 4
2x + y = 8
y = -2x + 8

Plot the points (-2, 12), (-1, 10), (0, 8) and (2, 4) in the same graph sheet.

The given two lines are parallel.
∴ They do not intersect a point.
∴ There is no solution.

(iv) x – y = 0; y + 3 = 0
Solution:
x – y = 0
-y = -x
y = x

Plot the points (-2, -2), (0, 0), (1, 1) and (3, 3) in the same graph sheet.
y + 3 = 0
y = -3

Plot the points (-2, -3), (0, -3), (1, -3) and (2, -3) in the same graph sheet.

The two lines l1 and l2 intersect at (-3, -3). The solution set is (-3, -3).

(v) y = 2x + 1; 3x – 6 = 0
Solution:
y = 2x + 1

Plot the points (-3, -5), (-1, -1), (0, 1) and (2, 5) in the graph sheet
3x – 6 = 0
y = -3x + 6

Plot the points (-2, 12), (-1, 9), (0, 6) and (2, 0) in the same graph sheet

The two lines l1 and l2 intersect at (1, 3).
∴ The solution set is (1, 3).

(vi) x = -3; y = 3
Solution:

∴ The solution set is (-3, 3)

Question 3.
Two cars are 100 miles apart. If they drive towards each other they will meet in 1 hour. If they drive in the same direction they will meet in 2 hours. Find their speed by using graphical method.
Solution:
Let the speed of the two cars be “x” and “y”.
By the given first condition

x+ y = 100 → (1)
(They travel in opposite direction)
By the given second condition.
\frac{100}{x-y}= 2 [time taken in 2 hours in the same direction]
2x – 2y = 100
x – y = 50 → (2)
x + y = 100
y = 100 – x

Plot the points (30, 70), (50, 50), (60, 40) and (70,30) in the graph sheet
x – y = 50

The speed of the first car 75 km/hr
The speed of the second car 25 km/hr
