## Important Questions & Solutions For Class 9 Maths Chapter 4 (Linear Equation in Two Variables)

**Q.1: Express the following linear equations in the form ax + by + c = 0 and indicate the values of a, b and c in each case:**

**(i) x – y/5 – 10 = 0**

**(ii) -2x+3y = 6**

**(iii) y – 2 = 0**

Solution:

(i) The equation x-y/5-10 = 0 can be written as:

(1)x + (-1/5) y + (-10) = 0

Now compare the above equation with ax + by + c = 0

Thus, we get;

a = 1

b = -⅕

c = -10

(ii) –2x + 3y = 6

Re-arranging the given equation, we get,

–2x + 3y – 6 = 0

The equation –2x + 3y – 6 = 0 can be written as,

(–2)x + 3y +(– 6) = 0

Now comparing (–2)x + 3y +(– 6) = 0 with ax + by + c = 0

We get, a = –2

b = 3

c = -6

(iii) y – 2 = 0

Solution:

y – 2 = 0

The equation y – 2 = 0 can be written as,

0x + 1y + (–2) = 0

Now comparing 0x + 1y + (–2) = 0with ax + by + c = 0

We get, a = 0

b = 1

c = –2

**(ii) πx + y = 9**

Solution:

To find the four solutions of πx + y = 9 we substitute different values for x and y

Let x = 0

Then,

πx + y = 9

(π × 0)+y = 9

y = 9

(0,9)

Let x = 1

Then,

πx + y = 9

(π×1)+y = 9

π+y = 9

y = 9-π

(1,9-π)

Let y = 0

Then,

πx + y = 9

πx +0 = 9

πx = 9

x =9/π

(9/π,0)

Let x = -1

Then,

πx + y = 9

(π(-1))+y = 9

-π + y = 9

y = 9+π

The solutions are (0,9), (1,9-π),(9/π,0),(-1,9+π)

**Q.3: Find the value of k, if x = 2, y = 1 is a solution of the equation 2x + 3y = k.**

Solution:

The given equation is

2x + 3y = k

According to the question, x = 2 and y = 1.

Now, Substituting the values of x and y in the equation 2x + 3y = k,

We get,

⇒(2 x 2)+ (3 × 1) = k

⇒4+3 = k

⇒7 = k

⇒k = 7

The value of k, if x = 2, y = 1 is a solution of the equation 2x + 3y = k, is 7.

**Q.4: Draw the graph of each of the following linear equations in two variables:**

**(i)y = 3x**

Solution:

To draw a graph of linear equations in two variables, let us find out the points to plot.

To find out the points, we have to find the values for which x and y satisfies the given equation.

Here,

y=3x

Substituting the values for x,

When x = 0,

y = 3x

y = 3(0)

⇒ y = 0

When x = 1,

y = 3x

y = 3(1)

⇒ y = 3

x | y |

0 | 0 |

1 | 3 |

The points to be plotted are (0, 0) and (1, 3)

**(ii) 3 = 2x + y**

Solution:

To draw a graph of linear equations in two variables, let us find out the points to plot.

To find out the points, we have to find the values for which x and y satisfies the given equation.

Here,

3 = 2x + y

Substituting the values for x,

When x = 0,

3 = 2x + y

⇒ 3 = 2(0) + y

⇒ 3 = 0 + y

⇒ y = 3

When x = 1,

3 = 2x + y

⇒ 3 = 2(1) + y

⇒ 3 = 2 + y

⇒ y = 3 – 2

⇒ y = 1

x | y |

0 | 3 |

1 | 1 |

The points to be plotted are (0, 3) and (1, 1)

**Q.5: If the point (3, 4) lies on the graph of the equation 3y = ax + 7, find the value of a.**

Solution:

The given equation is

3y = ax + 7

According to the question, x = 3 and y = 4

Now, Substituting the values of x and y in the equation 3y = ax + 7,

We get,

(3×4) = (ax3) + 7

⇒ 12 = 3a+7

⇒ 3a = 12–7

⇒ 3a = 5

⇒ a = 5/3

The value of a, if the point (3, 4) lies on the graph of the equation 3y = ax + 7 is 5/3.

**Q.6: Show that the points A (1, 2), B ( – 1, – 16) and C (0, – 7) lie on the graph of the linear equation y = 9x – 7.**

Solution:

We have the equation,

y = 9x – 7

For A (1, 2),

Substituting (x,y) = (1, 2),

We get,

2 = 9(1) – 7

2 = 9 – 7

2 = 2

For B (–1, –16),

Substituting (x,y) = (–1, –16),

We get,

–16 = 9(–1) – 7

-16 = – 9 – 7

-16 = – 16

For C (0, –7),

Substituting (x,y) = (0, –7),

We get,

– 7 = 9(0) – 7

-7 = 0 – 7

-7 = – 7

Hence, the points A (1, 2), B (–1, –16) and C (0, –7) satisfy the line y = 9x – 7.

Thus, A (1, 2), B (–1, –16) and C (0, –7) are solutions of the linear equation y = 9x – 7

Therefore, the points A (1, 2), B (–1, –16), C (0, –7) lie on the graph of linear equation y = 9x – 7.

**Q.7: Draw the graph of the linear equation 3x + 4y = 6. At what points, the graph cuts X and Y-axis?**

Solution: Given equation,

3x + 4y = 6.

We need at least 2 points on the graph to draw the graph of this equation,

Thus, the points the graph cuts

(i) x-axis

Since the point is on the x-axis, we have y = 0.

Substituting y = 0 in the equation, 3x + 4y = 6,

We get,

3x + 4×0 = 6

⇒ 3x = 6

⇒ x = 2

Hence, the point at which the graph cuts x-axis = (2, 0).

(ii) y-axis

Since the point is on the y-axis, we have, x = 0.

Substituting x = 0 in the equation, 3x + 4y = 6,

We get,

3×0 + 4y = 6

⇒ 4y = 6

⇒ y = 6/4

⇒ y = 3/2

⇒ y = 1.5

Hence, the point at which the graph cuts y-axis = (0, 1.5).

Plotting the points (0, 1.5) and (2, 0) on the graph.
