## Q1: The cost of a notebook is twice the cost of a pen. Write a linear equation in two variables to represent this statement.(Take the cost of a notebook to be Rs x and that of a pen to be Rs y.)Answer:Let the cost of a notebook and a pen be x and y respectively.Cost of notebook = 2 ☓ Cost of penx = 2yx − 2y = 0Q2: Express the following linear equations in the form ax + by + c = 0 and indicate the values of a, b, c in each case:(i) 2x + 3y = 9.35

(ii) x - y/5 - 10 = 0
(iii) − 2x + 3 y = 6

(iv) x = 3y
(v) 2x = − 5y
(vi) 3x + 2 = 0

(vii) y − 2 = 0
(viii) 5 = 2x

## Answer:(i) 2x + 3y = 9.352x + 3y - 9.35 = 0Comparing this equation with ax + by + c = 0,a = 2, b = 3, c = - 9.35(ii) x - y/5 - 10 = 0 Comparing this equation with ax + by + c = 0,a = 1, b =-1/5 , c = −10(iii) − 2x + 3 y = 6− 2x + 3 y − 6 = 0Comparing this equation with ax + by + c = 0,a = −2, b = 3, c = −6(iv) x = 3y1x − 3y + 0 = 0Comparing this equation with ax + by + c = 0,a = 1, b = −3, c = 0(v) 2x = −5y2x + 5y + 0 = 0Comparing this equation with ax + by + c = 0,a = 2, b = 5, c = 0(vi) 3x + 2 = 03x + 0.y + 2 = 0Comparing this equation with ax + by + c = 0,a = 3, b = 0, c = 2(vii) y − 2 = 00.x + 1.y − 2 = 0Comparing this equation with ax + by + c = 0,a = 0, b = 1, c = −2(viii)5 = 2x− 2x + 0.y + 5 = 0Comparing this equation with ax + by + c = 0,a = −2, b = 0, c = 5 1. 2.
