## EX 11.5 QUESTION 3.

Pick out the solution from the values given in the bracket next to each equation.

Show that the other values do not satisfy the equation.

(a) 5m = 60 (10, 5, 12, 15)

(b) n + 12 (12, 8, 20, 0)

(c) p – 5 = 5 (0, 10, 5 – 5)

(d) q / 2 = 7 (7, 2, 10, 14)

(e) r – 4 = 0 (4, -4, 8, 0)

(f) x + 4 = 2 (-2, 0, 2, 4)

Solution:

(a) 5m = 60

For m = 10

LHS = 5 x 10 = 50

RHS = 60

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

∴ m = 10 is not the solution of the equation

For m = 5,

LHS = 5×5 = 25,

RHS = 60

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

∴ m = 5 is not the solution of the equation

For m = 12,

LHS = 5 x 12 = 60,

RHS = 60

Here, LHS = RHS

∴ m = 12 is the solution of the equation

For m = 15

LHS = 5 x 15 = 75,

RHS = 60

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

∴ m = 15 is not the solution of the equation

(b) n + 12 = 20

For n = 12,

LHS = 12 + 12 = 24,

RHS = 20

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

∴ n = 12 is not the solution of the equation

For n = 8,

LHS = 8 + 12 = 20,

RHS = 20

Here, LHS = RHS

∴ n = 8 is the solution of the equation

For n = 20,

LHS = 20 + 12 = 32,

RHS = 20

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

∴ n = 20 is not the solution of the equation

For n = 0,

LHS = 0 + 12 – 12,

RHS = 20

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

∴ n= 0 is not the solution of the equation

(c)  p – 5 = 5 (0, 10, 5, -5)

For p = 0,

LHS = 0 – 5 = -5,

RHS = 5

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

∴ p = 0 is not the solution of the equation

For p = 10,

LHS = 10 – 5 = 5,

RHS = 5

Here, LHS = RHS

∴ p = 10 is the solution of the equation

For p = 5,

LHS = 5-5-0,

RHS = 5

Here LHS ≠ RHS

∴ p = 5 is not the solution of the equation

For p = 5,

LHS = 5 – 5 = 0,

RHS = 5

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

∴ p = -5 is not the solution of the equation

(d)q /2  = 7 (7, 2, 10, 14)

For q = 7, LHS = 7 / 2 ,

RHS = 7

Here LHS ≠ RHS

∴ q = 2 is not the solution of the equation

For q = 10, LHS = 10 / 2 = 5,

RHS = 7

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

For q = 14, LHS = 14 / 2 = 7,

RHS = 7

Here, LHS = RHS

∴ q = 14 is the solution of the equation

(e)  r – 4 = 0 (4, -4, 8, 0)

For r = 4,

LHS = 4 – 4 = 0,

RHS = 0

Here, LHS = RHS

∴ r = 4 is the solution of the equation

For r = -4,

LHS = -4 – 4 = -8,

RHS = 0

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

∴ r = -4 is not the solution of the equation

For r = 8,

LHS = 8 – 4 = 4,

RHS = 0

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

For r = 8 is not the solution of the equation

For r = 0,

LHS = 0 – 4 = – 4,

RHS = 0

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

∴ r = 0 is not the solution of the equation

(f)  x + 4 = 2 (-2, 0, 2, 4)
For x = -2

LHS = -2 + 4 = 2,

RHS = 2

Here, LHS = RHS

∴ x = -2 is the solution of the equation

For x = 0,

LHS = 0 + 4 – 4,

RHS = 2

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

∴ x = 0 is not the solution of the equation

For x = – 2,

LHS = -2 + 4 – 6,

RHS = 2

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

∴ x = 2 is not the solution of the equation

For r = 4,

LHS = 4 + 4 = 8,

RHS = 2

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

∴ x = 4 is not the solution of the equation

## EX 11.5 QUESTION 5.

Solve the following riddles, you may yourself construct such riddles.

Who am I? (i) Go round a squareCounting every corner

Thrice and no more!

To get exactly thirty four!

(ii) For each day of the week

Make an upcount from me

If you make no mistake

You will get twenty three! (iii) I am a special number

Take away from me a six!

A whole cricket team

You will still be able to fix!

(iv) Tell me who I am

I shall give a pretty clue!

You will get me back

If you take me out of twenty two!

Solutions:

(I) I + 12 = 34 or x + 12 = 34

∴ By inspection,

22 + 12 = 34

So, I am 22.

(ii) Let I am ‘x’.

in a week there are 7 days

∴ up-counting from x for 7, the sum = 23

By inspections,

16 + 7 = 23

∴ x = 16

Thus I am 16.

(iii) Let the special number be x

and there are 11 players in the cricket team.

∴ Special Number -6 = 11

∴ x – 6 = 11

By inspection,

17 – 6 = 11

∴ x = 17

Thus I am 17.

(iv) Suppose I am ‘x’.

∴ 22 – I = I

or 22 – x = x

By inspection,

22 – 11 = 11

∴ x = 11

Thus I am 11.
