Question 20: Ravish tells his daughter Aarushi, ”Seven years ago, I was seven times as old as you were then. Also, three years from now, I shall be three times as old as you will be”. If present ages of Aarushi and Ravish are x and y years respectively, represent this situation algebraically as well as graphically.

Solution:

We are given the present age of Ravish as y years and Aarushi as x years.

Age of Ravish seven years ago = y – 7 

Age of Aarushi seven years ago = x – 7

It has already been said by Ravish that seven years ago he was seven times old then Aarushi was then

So,

y – 7 = 7(x – 7)

y – 7 = 7x – 49

7x – y = -7 + 49

7x – y – 42 = 0

Age of Ravish three years from now = y + 3 

Age of Aarushi three years from now = x + 3 

It has already been said by Ravish that three years from now he will be three times old then Aarushi will be then

So,

y + 3 = 3(x + 3)

y + 3 = 3x + 9

3x + 9 – y – 3 = 0

3x – y + 6 = 0

(1) and (2) are the algebraic representation of the given statement.

Given:

7x – y – 42 = 0

We get,

y = 7x – 42

Now, substituting x = 0 in y = 7x – 42 ,we get

y = -42

Substituting x = 6 in y = 7x – 42, we get

y = 0

Therefore, we have the following table exhibiting the abscissa and ordinates of points on the line represented by the given equation

x 0 6
y -42 0

Given:

3x – y + 6 = 0

We get,

y = 3x + 6

Now, substituting x = 0 in y = 3x + 6 ,we get

y = 6

Substituting x = -2 in y = 3x + 6 ,we get

y = 0

Therefore, we have the following table exhibiting the abscissa and ordinates of points on the line represented by the given equation

x 0 -2
y 6 0

The red -line represents the equation. 7x – y – 42 = 0

The blue-line represents the equation. 3x – y + 6 = 0

Question 21: Aarushi was driving a car with uniform speed of 60km/h. Draw distance-time graph. From the graph, find the distance traveled by Aarushi in

(i) 2\frac{1}{2} Hours

(ii) \frac{1}{2} Hour

Solution:

Aarushi is driving the car with the uniform speed of 60 km/h.

We represent time on X-axis and distance on Y-axis

Now, graphically

We are given that the car is travelling with a uniform speed 60 km/hr. This means car travels 60 km distance each hour. Thus the graph we get is of a straight line.

Also, we know when the car is at rest, the distance traveled is 0 km, speed is 0 km/hr and the time is also 0 hr.

Therefore, the given straight line will pass through O(0,0) and M(1,60).

Join the points O and M and extend the line in both directions.

Now, we draw a dotted line parallel to y-axis from x = \frac{1}{2} that meets the straight line graph at L from which we draw a line parallel to x-axis that crosses y-axis at 30. Thus, in \frac{1}{2}hr, distance traveled by the car is 30 km.

Now, we draw a dotted line parallel to y-axis from x = 2\frac{1}{2} that meets the straight line graph at N from which we draw a line parallel to x-axis that crosses y-axis at 150. Thus, in 2\frac{1}{2}hr, distance traveled by the car is 150 km.

(i) Distance = Speed × Time

Distance traveled in 2\frac{1}{2} hours is given by

Distance = 60\times2\frac{1}{2}

Distance = 60\times\frac{5}{2}

Distance = 150 km

(ii) Distance = Speed × Time

Distance traveled in \frac{1}{2} hours is given by

Distance = 60\times\frac{1}{2}

Distance = 30 km
