Serial order wise

Last updated at April 16, 2024 by Teachoo

Ex 3.5 ,1 Which of the following pairs of linear equations has unique solution, no solution, or infinitely many solutions. In case there is a unique solution, find it by using cross multiplication method (iv) x – 3y – 7 = 0 3x – 3y – 15 = 0 x – 3y – 7 = 0 3x – 3y – 15 = 0 x – 3y – 7 = 0 Comparing with a1x + b1y + c1 = 0 ∴ a1 = 1, b1 = –3, c1 = –7 3x – 3y – 15 = 0 Comparing with a2x + b2y + c2 = 0 ∴ a2 = 3, b2 = –3, c2 = –15 a1 = 1, b1 = –3, c1 = –7 & a2 = 3, b2 = –3, c2 = –15 𝒂𝟏/𝒂𝟐 𝑎1/𝑎2 = 1/3 𝒃𝟏/𝒃𝟐 𝑏1/𝑏2 = (−3)/(−3) 𝑏1/𝑏2 = 1 𝒄𝟏/𝒄𝟐 𝑐1/𝑐2 = (−7)/(−15) 𝑐1/𝑐2 = 7/15 Since 𝒂𝟏/𝒂𝟐 ≠ 𝒃𝟏/𝒃𝟐 We have a unique solution Solving x – 3y – 7 = 0 …(1) 3x – 3y – 15 = 0 …(2) Using cross-multiplication 𝑥/(−3 ×(−15) − (−3) ×(−7) ) = 𝑦/(3 ×(−7) − 1 × (−15) ) = 1/(1 ×(−3) − 3 ×(−3) ) 𝑥/((45) − 21 ) = 𝑦/(−21 + 15 ) = 1/(−3 + 9 ) 𝑥/(24 ) = 𝑦/(−6 ) = 1/6 Now, 𝒙/𝟐𝟒 = 𝟏/𝟔 x = 24/6 ∴ x = 4 𝒚/(−𝟔) = 𝟏/𝟔 y = (−6)/6 ∴ y = – 1 Therefore, x = 4, y = –1 is the solution of our equation
