Q.3 Pick out the solution from the values given in the bracket next to each equation.

Show that the other values do not satisfy the equation.

(a) 5m = 60 (10, 5, 12, 15)

(b) n + 12 (12, 8, 20, 0)

(c) p – 5 = 5 (0, 10, 5 ,– 5)

(d) \(\frac{q}{2} \) = 7 (7, 2, 10, 14)

(e) r – 4 = 0 (4, -4, 8, 0)

(f) x + 4 = 2 (-2, 0, 2, 4)

Show that the other values do not satisfy the equation.

(a) 5m = 60 (10, 5, 12, 15)

(b) n + 12 (12, 8, 20, 0)

(c) p – 5 = 5 (0, 10, 5 ,– 5)

(d) \(\frac{q}{2} \) = 7 (7, 2, 10, 14)

(e) r – 4 = 0 (4, -4, 8, 0)

(f) x + 4 = 2 (-2, 0, 2, 4)

(a) 5m = 60 (10, 5 , 12, 15)
For m = 10, LHS = 5 x 10 = 50, RHS = 60
Here, LHS \(\neq \)RHS

\(\therefore \)m = 10 is not the solution of the equation

For m = 5, LHS = 5×5 = 25, RHS = 60

Here, LHS \(\neq \) RHS

\(\therefore \) m = 5 is not the solution of the equation

For m = 12, LHS = 5 x 12 = 60, RHS = 60

Here, LHS = RHS

\(\therefore \) m = 12 is the solution of the equation

For m = 15 LHS = 5 x 15 = 75, RHS = 60

Here, LHS \(\neq \) RHS

\(\therefore \) m = 15 is not the solution of the equation

(b) n + 12 = 20 (12, 8, 20, 0)

For n = 12, LHS = 12 + 12 = 24, RHS = 20

Here, LHS \(\neq \) RHS

\(\therefore \) n = 12 is not the solution of the equation

For n = 8, LHS = 8 + 12 = 20, RHS = 20

Here, LHS = RHS

\(\therefore \) n = 8 is the solution of the equation

For n = 20, LHS = 20 + 12 = 32, RHS = 20

Here, LHS \(\neq \) RHS

\(\therefore \) n = 20 is not the solution of the equation

For n = 0, LHS = 0 + 12 – 12, RHS = 20

Here, LHS \(\neq \) RHS

\(\therefore \) n= 0 is not the solution of the equation

(c) p – 5 = 5 (0, 10, 5, -5)

For p = 0, LHS = 0 – 5 = -5, RHS = 5

Here, LHS \(\neq \) RHS

\(\therefore \) p = 0 is not the solution of the equation

For p = 10, LHS = 10 – 5 = 5, RHS = 5

Here, LHS = RHS

\(\therefore \) p = 10 is the solution of the equation

For p = 5, LHS = 5-5-0, RHS = 5

Here LHS \(\neq \) RHS

\(\therefore \) p = 5 is not the solution of the equation

For p = 5, LHS = 5 – 5 = 0, RHS = 5

Here, LHS \(\neq \) RHS

\(\therefore \) p = -5 is not the solution of the equation

(d) q/2 = 7 (7, 2, 10, 14)

For q = 7, LHS = 7/2 , RHS = 7

Here LHS \(\neq \) RHS

\(\therefore \) q = 7 is not the solution of the equation

For q = 2, LHS = 2/2 = 1, RHS = 7

Here, LHS \(\neq \) RHS

\(\therefore \) q = 2 is not the solution of the equation

For q = 10, LHS = 10/2 = 5, RHS = 7

Here, LHS \(\neq \) RHS

For q = 14, LHS = 14/2 = 7, RHS = 7

Here, LHS = RHS

\(\therefore \) q = 14 is the solution of the equation

(e) r – 4 = 0 (4, -4, 8, 0)

For r = 4, LHS = 4 – 4 = 0, RHS = 0

Here, LHS = RHS

\(\therefore \) r = 4 is the solution of the equation

For r = -4, LHS = -4 – 4 = -8, RHS = 0

Here, LHS \(\neq \) RHS

\(\therefore \) r = -4 is not the solution of the equation

For r = 8, LHS = 8 – 4 = 4, RHS = 0

Here, LHS \(\neq \) RHS

For r = 8 is not the solution of the equation

For r = 0, LHS = 0 – 4 = – 4, RHS = 0

Here, LHS \(\neq \) RHS

\(\therefore \) r = 0 is not the solution of the equation

(f) x + 4 = 2 (-2, 0, 2, 4)

For x = -2, LHS = -2 + 4 = 2, RHS = 2

Here, LHS – RHS

\(\therefore \) x = -2 is the solution of the equation

For x = 0, LHS = 0 + 4 – 4, RHS = 2

Here, LHS \(\neq \) RHS

\(\therefore \) x = 0 is not the solution of the equation

For x = – 2, LHS = -2 + 4 – 6, RHS = 2

Here, LHS \(\neq \) RHS

\(\therefore \) x = 2 is not the solution of the equation

For r = 4, LHS = 4 + 4 = 8, RHS = 2

Here, LHS \(\neq \) RHS

\(\therefore \)x = 4 is not the solution of the equation
