(v) y2 = 64

L.H.S = y2,

R.H.S = 64

Question no – (2)

Solution :

According to the given question :

(i) Five added to a number x gives 8

Equation = x + 5 = 8

Hence, the required equation is x + 5 = 8

(ii) A number x divided by 6 gives 2

Equation = x – 7 = 6

Thus, required equation is x – 7 = 6

(iii) 9 times a number x is 12

Equation, 9x = 12

Therefore, the required equation is 9x = 12

(iv) The square of x is 16

now in equation x² = 16

Therefore, the required equation is x² = 16

(v) Twice a number subtracted from 15 is 7

Now in equation 15 – 2x = 7

Hence, the required equation is 15 – 2x = 7

Question no – (19)

Solution :

Let, the numbers are = x and = 3x

Given that’s,

= x + 3x = 124

= 4x = 124

Number of boys = 2x

Given that,

= 2x + x = 1242

= 3x = 1242

= x = 1242/3

= x = 414

Girls students in the school = 414

Boys students in the school,

= 414 × 2

= 828

Therefore, the number of boys will be 828 and girls will be 414.

Question no – (21)

Solution :

As per the question,

Let, his present age = x years

After 16 years = x + 16 years

Given that,

= 3x = x + 16

= 3x – x = 16

= 2x = 16
