5.   On comparing the ratios $\frac{a_1}{a_2}, \frac{b_1}{b_2}, \quad and \quad \frac{c_1}{c_2}$ , find out whether the lines representing the following pairs of linear equations at a point, are parallel or coincident: $\\$ (i) $5x -4y + 8 = 0 \qquad 7x + 6y =0$ $\\$ (ii) $9x +3y +12 =0 \qquad 18x + 6y + 24 =0$ $\\$ (iii) $6x-3y + 10 = 0 \qquad 2x - y + 9 =0$ $\\$

(i) $5x - 4y + 8 = 0$ $\\$ $7x + 6y - 9 = 0$ $\\$ Comparing these equations with $a_1x + b_1y + c_1 = 0$ $\\$ and $a_2x + b_2y + c_2 = 0,$ we obtain $\\$ $a_1 = 5, \qquad b_1 =-4 \qquad c_1 =8$ $\\$ $a_2 = 7, \qquad b_2 =6 \qquad c_2 = -9$ $\\$ $\frac{a_1}{a_2} = \frac{5}{7}$ $\\$ $\frac{b_1}{b_2} = \frac{-4}{6} = \frac{-2}{3}$ $\\$ Since, $\frac{a_1}{a_2} \neq \frac{b_1}{b_2},$ $\\$ Hence, the lines representing the given pair of equations have a unique solution and the pair of lines intersects at exactly one point. $\\$ (ii) $9x + 3y + 12 = 0$ $\\$ $18x + 6y + 24 = 0$ $\\$ Comparing these equations with, $a_1x + b_2y +c_1 = 0$ and $a_2x +b_2y +c_2 = 0,$ we obtain $\\$ $a_1 = 9, \qquad b_1 =3 \qquad c_1 =12$ $\\$ $a_2 = 18, \qquad b_2 =6 \qquad c_2 = 24$ $\\$ $\frac{a_1}{a_2} = \frac{9}{18} = \frac{1}{2}$ $\\$ $\frac{b_1}{b_2} = \frac{3}{6} = \frac{1}{2}$ $\\$ $\frac{c_1}{c_2} = \frac{12}{24} = \frac{1}{2}$ $\\$

Since, $\frac{a_1}{a_2} = \frac{b_1}{b_2} = \frac{c_1}{c_2}$ $\\$ Hence, the lines representing the given pair of equations are coincident and there are infinite possible solutions for the given pair of equations. $\\$ (iii) $6x - 3y + 10 = 0$ $\\$ $2x - y +9 =0$ $\\$ Comparing these equations with $a_1x + b_1y +c_1 = 0$ and $a_2x + b_2y +c_2 = 0$ we obtain $\\$ $a_1 = 6, \qquad b_1 =-3, \qquad c_1=10$ $\\$ $a_2 = 2, \qquad b_2 =-1, \qquad c_2=9$ $\\$ $\frac{a_1}{a_2} =\frac{6}{2} = \frac{3}{1}$ $\\$ $\frac{b_1}{b_2} = \frac{-3}{-1} = \frac{3}{1}$ $\\$ $\frac{c_1}{c_2} = \frac{10}{9}$ $\\$ Since, $\frac{a_1}{a_2} = \frac{b_1}{b_2} \neq \frac{c_1}{c_2}$ $\\$ Hence, the lines representing the given pair of equations are parallel to each other and hence, these lines will never intersect each other at any point or there is no possible solution for the given pair of equations.

6.   On comparing the ratios $\frac{a_1}{a_2}, \frac{b_1}{b_2} and \frac{c_1}{c_2}$, $\\$find out whether the following pair of linear equations are consistent, or inconsistent. (i)$3x +2y =5, \qquad 2x-3y =7$ $\\$ (ii)$2x -3y =8, \qquad 4x-6y =9$ $\\$ (iii)$\frac{3}{2}x + \frac{5}{3}y =7, \qquad 9x-10y =14$ $\\$ (iv)$5x -3y =11, \qquad -10x+6y =-22$ $\\$ (v)$\frac{4}{3}x + 2y =8, \qquad 2x+3y = 12$ $\\$

Hence, the pair of linear equations is consistent. $\\$ (ii)$2x - 3y = 8$ $\\$ $4x - 6y =9$ $\frac{a_1}{a_2} = \frac{2}{4} = \frac{1}{2}, \quad \frac{b_1}{b_2} = \frac{-3}{-6} = \frac{1}{2}, \quad \frac{c_1}{c_2} = \frac{8}{9}$ $\\$ Since $\frac{a_1}{a_2} = \frac{b_1}{b_2} \neq \frac{c_1}{c_2}$

Therefore, these linear equations are parallel to each other and thus have no possible solution. Hence, the pair of linear equations is inconsistent. $\\$ (iii) $\ frac{3}{2}x + \frac{5}{3}y = 7$ $\\$ $9x - 10y =14$ $\\$ $\frac{a_1}{a_2} = \frac{\frac{3}{2}}{9} = \frac{1}{6}, \quad \frac{\frac{5}{3}}{-10} = \frac{-1}{6}, \quad \frac{c_1}{c_2} = \frac{7}{14} = \frac{1}{2}$ $\\$ Since, $\frac{a_1}{a_2} \neq \frac{b_1}{b_2},$ Therefore, these linear equations are intersecting each other at one point and thus have only one possible solution. Hence, the pair of linear equations is consistent. $\\$ (iv) $5x - 3 y = 11$ $- 10x + 6y = - 22$ $\frac{a_1}{a_2} = \frac{5}{-10} = \frac{-1}{2}, \quad \frac{-3}{6} = \frac{-1}{2}, \quad \frac{c_1}{c_2} = \frac{11}{-22} = \frac{-1}{2}$ $\\$ Since, $\frac{a_1}{a_2} = \frac{b_1}{b_2} \neq \frac{c_1}{c_2},$ Therefore, these linear equations are coincident pair of lines and thus have infinite number of possible solutions. Hence, the pair of linear equations is consistent. $\\$

(iii) $\ frac{4}{3}x + 2y = 8$ $\\$ $2x - 3y =12$ $\\$ $\frac{a_1}{a_2} = \frac{\frac{4}{3}}{2} = \frac{2}{3}, \quad \frac{2}{3}, \quad \frac{c_1}{c_2} = \frac{8}{12} = \frac{2}{3}$ $\\$ Since, $\frac{a_1}{a_2} = \frac{b_1}{b_2},$ Therefore, these linear equations are intersecting each other at one point and thus have only one possible solution. Hence, the pair of linear equations is consistent. $\\$

7.   Which of the following pairs of linear equations are consistent/ inconsistent? If consistent, obtain the solution graphically: $\\$ (i) $x+y =5, \qquad 2x+2y =10$ $\\$ (ii) $x-y =8, \qquad 3x-3y =16$ $\\$ (iii) $2x+y -6 =0, \qquad 4x-2y -4 =0$ $\\$ (iv) $2x-2y -2 =0, \qquad 4x-4y - 5 =0$ $\\$

(i) $x + y = 5$ $\\$ $2x + 2y = 10$ $\\$ $\frac{a_1}{a_2} = \frac{1}{2}, \quad \frac{b_1}{b_2} = \frac{1}{2}, \quad \frac{c_1}{c_2} = \frac{5}{10} =\frac{1}{2}$ $\\$ Since, $\frac{a_1}{a_2} = \frac{b_1}{b_2} = \frac{c_1}{c_2},$ $\\$ Therefore, these linear equations are coincident pair of lines and thus have infinite number of possible solutions. Hence, the pair of linear equations is consistent. $\\$ $x + y =5$ $\\$ $x = 5 - y$ $\\$

x 4 3 2

Hence, the pair of linear equations is inconsistent. $\\$ (iii) $2x + y - 6 = 0$ $\\$ $4x - 2y - 4 = 0$ $\\$ $\frac{a_1}{a_2} = \frac{2}{4}=\frac{1}{2}, \quad \frac{b_1}{b_2} = \frac{-1}{2}, \quad \frac{c_1}{c_2} = \frac{-6}{-4} = \frac{3}{2}$ $\\$ Since $\frac{a_1}{a_2} \neq \frac{b_1}{b_2}$ $\\$ Therefore, these linear equations are intersecting each other at one point and thus have only one possible solution. Hence, the pair of linear equations is consistent. $\\$ $2x + y - 6 = 0$ $\\$ $y = 6 - 2x$

And $4x- 2y - 4 = 0$ $\\$ $y = \frac{4x -4}{2}$

(i) Let x be the fixed charge of the food and y be the charge for food per day. According to the given information, $\\$ $x +20y =1000$ $\\$ $x +26y = 1180$ $\\$ Subtracting equation (1) from equation (2), we obtain $\\$ $6y =180$ $\\$ $y =30$ $\\$ Substituting this value in equation (1), we obtain, $\\$ $x+20 \times 30 =1000$ $\\$ $x =1000 - 600$ $\\$ $x =400$ $\\$ Hence, fixed charge = $Rs 400$ $\\$ And charge per day = $Rs 30$ $\\$ (ii)Let the fraction be $\frac{x}{y}$ $\\$ According to the given information, $\\$ $\frac{x-1}{y} = \frac{1}{3} \qquad \Rightarrow \qquad 3x -y =3 \qquad (1)$ $\frac{x}{y + 8} = \frac{1}{4} \qquad \Rightarrow \qquad 4x -y =8 \qquad (2)$ Subtracting equation (1) from equation (2), we obtain $\\$ $x =5 \qquad (3)$ $\\$ Putting this value in equation (1), we obtain $\\$ $15 -y =3$ $\\$ $y =12$ $\\$ Hence, the fraction is $\frac{5}{12}$
