Linear Equations and In-equations in One Variable Exercise 14.3 Solution :

Question no – (1)

Solution :

The replacement set is

= {- 5, – 4, – 3, – 2, – 1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7}

(a) x ≥ 5

= Here the value of x is greater equal to 5

Thus the solution set = {5, 6, 7}

(b) x – 5 > 2

= Adding 5 on both sides

x – 5 + 5 > 2 + 5

= x > 7

Hence the value of x is greater than 7

Thus the solution set is = {φ}

(c) 7 < x + 6

= Subtracting 6 on both sides

7 – 6 < x + 6 – 6

= < x

Thus the solution set = {2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7}

(d) – 2 < x ≤ 3

= The value of x is between – 2 and 3

Thus the solution set = {- 1, 0, 1, 2, 3}

(e)  -11 < n < 5

= The value of n is between – 11 and 5

Thus the solution set = {- 5, – 4, – 3, – 2, – 1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4}

(f) 0 ≤ p ≤ 8

=  The value of p is between 0 and 8

Thus the solution set = {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7}

Question no – (2)

Solution :

(a) Replacement set = {- 2, – 1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7}

Here, x > – 5

Thus the solution set = {- 2, – 1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7}

(b) Replacement set = {- 10, – 9, – 8, – 7, – 6}

Here, x > – 5

Thus the solution set = {φ}

Question no – (3)

Solution :

(a) 2x + 5 > 5, x ∈ w

=> 2x + 5 – 5 > 5 – 5 (Subtracting 5 on both side)

=> 2x + 0 > 0

=> 2x > 0

=> 2x/2 > 0/2 (Dividing both sides by 2)

=> x > 0

Thus the solution set for 2x + 5 > 5

x ∈ w {1, 2, 3, 4,…..}

(b) – 7 < – 5p – 2, p ∈

=> – 7 + 2 <- 5p – 2 + 2 (Adding both sides by 2)

=> – 5/- 5 < – 5p/- 5 (Dividing both sides by – 5)

=> 1 < p, p ∈

Thus the solution set of the given inequalities {…. – 2, – 1, 0}

(c) 4x – 15 ≤ 42, x ∈ and divisible by 3

=> 4x – 15 ≤ 42

=> 4x – 15 + 15 ≤ 42 + 15 (Adding both sides by 15)

=> 4x ≤ 57

=> 4x/4 ≤ 57/4 (Dividing both sides by 4)

=> x ≤ 57/4

=> x ≤ 14.25

Thus the solution set of the given inequalities which belongs to ℕ and divisible by 3 = {12, 9, 6, 3}

(d) 2x/5 – 10 < 15, x ∈

=> 2x/5 – 10 + 10 < 15 + 10 (Adding both sides by 10)

=> 2x/5 < 25

=> 2x/5 × 5 < 25 × 5 (Multiplying both sides by 5)

=> 2x < 125

=> 2x < 125/2 (Dividing both sides by 2)

=> x < 62.5

Thus the solution set of the given inequalities which belongs to = {1, 2, ….., 61, 62}

(e) 5y – 8/4 ≤ 3, y ∈

=> 5y – 8/4 × 4 ≤ 3 × 4 (Multiplying both sides by 4)

=> 5y – 8 ≤ 12

=> 5y – 8 + 8 ≤ 12 + 8 (Adding both sides by 8)

=> 5y ≤ 20

=> 5y/5 ≤ 20/5 (Dividing both sides by 5)

=> y ≤ 4

Thus the solution set of the given inequalities is = {1, 2, 3, 4}

(f) 5/9 P – 7 > 2, P ∈

=> 5/9 P – 7 + 7 > 2 + 7 (Adding both sides by 7)

=> 5/9 P > 9

=> 5/9 P × 9 > 9 × 9 (Multiplying both sides by 9)

=> 5P > 81

=> 5P/5 > 81/5 (Dividing both sides by 5)

=> P > 16.2

Thus the solution set of the given inequalities {17, 18, 19, …..}

Question no – (4)

Solution :

(a) – 5 + 2x ≤ 4 if, x ∈ {- 6, – 5, – 4, – 3, – 2, – 1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

=> Here, – 5 + 2x ≤ 4

=> – 5 + 5 + 2x ≤ 4 + 5 (Adding both sides by 5)

=> 2x ≤ 9

=> 2x/2 ≤ 9/2 (Dividing both sides by 2)

=> x ≤ 4.5

Thus the solution set of the given inequalities {5, 6}

Since, x is an integer x = 5, 6 (b) 4(y + 2) > 2(y – 5) + 2

=> 4y + 8 > 2y – 10 + 5

=> 4y + 8 > 2y – 5

=> 4y – 2y + 8 > 2y – 2y – 5 (Subtracting both sides by 2y)

=> 2y + 8 > – 5

=> 2y + 8 – 8 > – 5 – 8 (Subtracting both sides by 8)

=> 2y > – 13

=> y > – 13/2

=> y > – 6.5

Question no – (5)

Solution :

(a) 5x – 2 ≥ 11, x ∈ ℝ

=> 5x – 2 + 2 ≥ 11 + 2 (Adding both sides by 2)

=> 5x ≥ 13

=> 5x/5 ≥ 13/5 (Dividing both sides by 5)

=> x ≥ 2.6

The solution set of x = {2.6, 3,…….}

Since x is an real number, x = – 2, – 1, 0, 1, 2 It can be represented on the number line as shown. (b) 3x – 2 > 2(x + 2)

=> 3x – 2 > 2x + 4

=> 3x – 2x > 4 + 2

=> x > 6

The solution set of x = {7, 8, 9, ……}

Since, x ∈ W, it can be represented on the number line as shown (c) m – 2/3 < 5, m ∈ ℕ

=> m – 2 < 15

=> m < 15 + 2

=> m < 17

Thus the solution set of m = {1, 2, 3, …. 16}

Since, m ∈ ℕ

It can be represented on the number line as shown (d) – 5(2P + 7) > – 55, P ∈ ℤ

=> – 10P – 35 > – 55

=> – 10P > – 55 + 35

=> – 10P > – 20

=> P > – 20/- 10

=> P > 2

Thus the relation set of P = {3, 4, 5, 6,…..}

Since, P ∈ ℤ

It can be represented on the number line as shown Previous Chapter Solution :
