Hint: 3c + 10

(ii) True

(iii) False

(iv) True

(v) False

Hint: 7y – 7

(i) ‘t’ is added to 100

(ii) 4 times ‘q’

(iii) 8 is reduced by ‘y’

(iv) 56 added to 2 times ‘x’

(v) 4 less to 9 times of ‘y’

Solution:

(i) t + 100

(ii) 4q

(iii) 8 – y

(iv) 2x + 56

(v) 9y – 4

Question 4.

Express the following algebraic statement to a verbal statement.

(i) x ÷ 3

(ii) 5n – 12

(iii) 11 + 10x

(iv) 70s

Solution:

(i) x divided by 3.

(ii) 12 less to 5 times n.

(iii) 11 added to 10 times x

(iv) 7 times s.

Question 5.

The teacher asked two students to write the algebraic statement for the verbal statement “8 more than a number”. Vetri wrote ‘8 + x’ but Maran wrote ‘8x’. Who gave the correct answer?

Solution:

Let the number be x; 8 more than the number = 8 + x.

Vetri gave the correct answer as 8 + x.

Question 6.

Answer the following questions.

(i) If ‘n’ takes the value 3 then find the value of ‘n + 10’?

(ii) If ‘g’ is equal to 300 what is the value of ‘g – 1’ and ‘g + 1’?

(iii) What is the value of ‘s’, if ‘2s – 6’ gives 30?

Solution:

(i) n = 3

n + 10 = 3 + 10 = 13

(ii) g = 300

g – 1 = 300 – 1

= 299

g + 1 = 300 + 1

=301

(iii) 2s – 6 = 30

2s = 30 + 6

2s = 36

s = 36/2

s = 18

Question 7.

Complete the table and find the value of ‘k’ for which ‘k/3’ gives 5.

Solution:

\(\frac{k}{3}\) = 5

k = 15

Question 8.

The value of ‘y’ in y + 7 = 13 is

(a) y = 5

(b) y = 6

(c) y = 7

(d) y = 8

Solution:

(b) y = 6

Hint: y = 13 – 7 = 6

Question 9.

6 less to ‘n’ gives 8 is represented as

(a) n – 6 = 8

(b) 6 – n = 8

(c) 8 – n = 6

(d) n – 8 = 6

Solution:

(a) n – 6 = 8

Question 10.

The value of ‘c’ for which \(\frac{3c}{4}\) gives 18 is

(a) c = 15

(b) c = 21

(c) c = 24

(d) c = 27

Solution:

(c) c = 24
