## Tamilnadu Samacheer Kalvi 10th Maths Solutions Chapter 3 Algebra Unit Exercise 3

10th Maths Unit Exercise 3 Question 1.
Solve 13 (x + y – 5) = y – z = 2x – 11 = 9 – (x + 2 z).
Solution:
Given 3z = 3 ⇒ z = 1
(3) becomes, 3x + 2 = 20 ⇒ 3x = 20 – 2 = 18
x = 183 = 6
(1) becomes, 6 – 2y + 3(1) = 5 ⇒ 9 – 2y = 5
⇒ 9 – 5 = 2y ⇒ 2y = 4
∴ y = 42 = 2
∴ Solution set is {6, 2, 1}

One hundred and fifty students are admitted to a school. They are distributed over three sections A, B and C. If 6 students are shifted from section A to section C, the sections will have equal number of students. If 4 times of students of section C exceeds the number of students of section A by the number of students in section B, find the number of students in the three sections.
Solution:
Let the students in section A, B, C be a, b, c, respectively. Samacheer Kalvi 10th Maths Exercise 3.1 Question 3.
In a three-digit number, when the tens and the hundreds digit are interchanged the new number is 54 more than three times the original number. If 198 is added to the number, the digits are reversed. The tens digit exceeds the hundreds digit by twice as that of the tens digit exceeds the unit digit. Find the original number.
Solution:
Let the three digits numbers be 100a +10b + c.
100b + 10a + c = 3(100a + 10b + c) + 54 ………. (1)
100a + 106 + c + 198 = 100c + 106 + a ……… (2)
(b – a) = 2(b – c) ……… (3)
(1) ⇒ 100b + 10a + c = 300a + 30b + 3c + 54
⇒ 290a – 70b + 2c = -54
(2) ⇒ 99a – 99c = -198 ⇒ a – c = -2
⇒ a = c – 2
(3) ⇒ a + b – 2c = 0 ⇒ a + b = 2c
⇒ b = 2c – c + 2
⇒ b = c + 2
Substituting a, b in (1)
290(c – 2) – 70 (c + 2) + 2c = -54
290c – 580 – 70c – 140 + 2c = -54
222c = 666 ⇒ c = 3
a = 1, 6 = 5
∴ The number is 153.

10th Maths Unit Exercise 2 Question 4.
Find the least common multiple of
xy (k2 + 1) + k(x2 + y2) and
xy(k2 – 1) + k (x2 – y2)
xy (k2 + 1) + k(x2 + y2) = k2xy + xy + kx2 + ky2
= (k2xy + kx2) + (ky2 + xy)
= kx(ky + x) + y (ky + x)
= (ky + x) (kx + y)
xy (k2 – 1) + k(x2 – y2) = k2xy – xy + kx2 – ky2
= (k2xy + kx2) – xy – ky2
= kx(ky + x) -y (ky + x)
= (ky + x) (kx – y)
L.C.M. = (ky + x) (kx + y) (kx – y)
= (ky + x)(k2x2 – y2)
The least common multiple is
(ky + x) (k2x2 – y2)

Solve y+1−−−−√+2y5−−−−−√ = 3.
Solution:
Squaring both sides 9y2 – 78y + 169 = 4 (y + 1)(2y – 5)
9y2 – 78y + 169 = 4 (2y2 + 2y – 5y – 5)
9y2 – 78y + 169 = 8y2 + 8y – 20y – 20
9y2 – 78y + 169 – 8y2 + 12y + 20 = 0
y2 – 66y + 189 = 0
y2 – 63y – 3y + 189 = 0
y(y – 63) – 3(y – 63) = 0
(y – 63)(y – 3) = 0
y = 63, 3

A boat takes 1.6 hours longer to go 36 kms up a river than down the river. If the speed of the water current is 4 km per hr, what is the speed of the boat in still water?
Solution:
Let the speed of boat in still water be ‘v’ ⇒ 36(v + 4) – 36(v – 4) = 85 (v – 4) (v + 4)
⇒ 36v + 144 – 36v + 144 = 85 (v2 – 4v + 4v – 16)
⇒ 288 = 85 v21285 ⇒ 8v2 – 128 = 1440
⇒ 8v2 = 1568 ⇒ v2 = 196 v = ±14
∴ Speed of the boat = 14 km/hr. (∵ speed cannot be -ve)

The number of seats in a row is equal to the total number of rows in a hall. The total number of seats in the hall will increase by 375 if the number of rows is doubled and the number of seats in each row is reduced by 5. Find the number of rows in the hall at the beginning.
Solution:
Let the no of seats in each row be x ⇒ 2x2 – 10x = x2 + 375
⇒ x2 – 10x – 375 = 0
⇒ x2 – 25x + 15x – 375 = 0
⇒ x (x – 25) + 15 (x – 25) = 0
⇒ (x – 25) (x + 15) = 0
⇒ x = 25, x = -15, x > 0
∴ 25 rows are in the hall.

3rd Standard Samacheer Maths Book Solutions Question 15.
If a and b are the roots of the polynomial f(x) = x2 – 2x + 3, find the polynomial whose roots are
(i) α + 2, β + 2
(ii) α1α+1,β1β+1
Solution: (i) α + 2, β + 2 are the roots (given)
Sum of the roots = α + 2 + β + 2
= α + β + 4
= 2 + 4 = 6
Product of the roots = (α + 2) (β + 2)
= αβ + 2α + 2β + 4
= αβ + 2(α + β) + 4
= 3 + 2 × 2 + 4
= 3 + 4 + 4 = 11
∴ The required equation = x2 – 6x + 11 = 0. ⇒ 3x2 – 2x + 1 = 0

Question 1.
Solve the following system of linear equations in three variables. x + y + z = 6; 2x + 3y + 4z = 20;
3x + 2y + 5z = 22
Solution:
x + y + z = 6 ………….. (1)
2x + 3y + 4z = 20 ………… (2)
3x + 2y + 5z = 22 …………(3) Sub. z = 3 in (5) ⇒ y – 2(3) = -4
y = 2
Sub. y = 2, z = 3 in (1), we get
x + 2 + 3 = 6
x = 1
x = 1, y = 2, z = 3

Question 2.
Using quadratic formula solve the following equations.
(i) p2x2 + (p2 – q2) x – q2 = 0
(ii) 9x2 – 9 (a + b)x + (2a2 + 5ab + 2b2) = 0
Solution:
(i) p2x2 + (p2 – q2)x – q2 = 0
Comparing this with ax2 + bx + c = 0, we have
a = p2
b = p2 – q2
c = -q2
Δ = b2 – 4ac
= (p2 – q2)-4 × p2 × -q2
= (p2 – q2)2 + 4p2 q2
= (p2 + q2)2 > 0
So, the given equation has real roots given by
α=bΔ2a=(p2q2)+(p2+q2)2p2=q2p2
β=bΔ2a=(p2q2)(p2+q2)2p2
= -1

(ii) 9x2 – 9(a + b)x + (2a2 + 5ab + 2b2) = 0
Comparing this with ax2 + bx + c = 0.
a =9
b = -9 (a + b)
c = (2a2 + 5 ab + 2b2)
Δ = B2 – 4AC
⇒ 81 (a + b)2 – 36(2a2 + 5ab + 2b2)
⇒ 9a2 + 9b2 – 18ab
⇒ 9(a – b)2 > 0
∴ the roots are real and given by Question 3.
Find the HCF of x3 + x2 + x + 1 and x4 – 1.
x3 + x2 + x + 1 = x2 (x + 1) + 1 (x + 1)
= (x + 1) (x2 + 1)
x4-1 = (x2)2 – 1
= (x2 + 1) (x2– 1)
= (x2 + 1) (x + 1) (x – 1)
H.C.F. = (x2 + 1)(x + 1)

Question 4.
Prove that the equation x2(a2 + b2) + 2x(ac + bd) + (c2 + d2) = 0 has no real root if ad ≠ bc
Solution:
Δ = b2 – 4ac
⇒ 4(ac + bd)2 – 4(a2 + b2)(c2 + d2)
⇒ 4[(ac + bd)2 – (a2 + b2)(c2 + d2)]
⇒ 4(a2c2 + b2d2 + 2acbd – a2c2b2c2 – a2d2 – b2d2]
⇒ 4[2acbd – a2d2 – b2c2]
⇒ 4 [a2c2 + b2c2 – 2adbc]
∴ ad – bc > 0
⇒ (ad – bc)2 > 0
⇒ -4(ad – bc)2 < 0 ⇒ Δ < 0
Hence the given equation has no real roots.

Question 5.
Find the L.C.M of 2(x3 + x2 – x – 1) and 3(x3 + 3x2 – x – 3)
2[x3 + x2 – x – 1] = 2[x2(x+ 1)- 1 (x + 1)]
= 2(x + 1) (x2 – 1)
= 2(x + 1) (x + 1) (x – 1)
= 2(x + 1)2 (x – 1)
3[x3 + 3x2 – x – 3] = 3[x2(x + 3) -1 (x + 3)]
= 3[(x + 3)(x2 – 1)]
= 3(x + 3)(x + 1) (x – 1)
L.C.M. = 6(x + 1)2(x – 1) (x + 3)

Question 6.
A two digit number is such that the product of its digits is 12. When 36 is added to the number the digits interchange their places. Find the number.
Solution:
Let the ten’s digit of the number be x. It is given that the product of the digits is 12.
Unit’s digit = 12x
Number = 10x + 12x
If 36 is added to the number the digits interchange their places. x = -6, 2.
But a number can never be (-ve). So, x = 2.
The number is 10 × 2 + 122 = 26

Question 7.
Seven years ago, Vanin’s age was five times the square of swati’s age. Three years hence Swati’s age will be two fifth of Varun’s age. Find their present ages.
Solution:
Seven years ago, let Swathi’s age be x years.
Seven years ago, let Varun’s age was 5x2 years.
Swathi’s present age = x + 7 years
Varun’s present age = (5x2 + 7) years
3 years hence, we have Swathi’s age = x + 7 + 3 years
= x + 10 years
Varun’s age = 5x2 + 7 + 3 years
= 5x2 + 10 years
It is given that 3 years hence Swathi’s age will be 25 of Varun’s age.
∴ x + 10 = 25 (5x2 + 10)
⇒ x + 10 = 2x2 + 4
⇒ 2x2 – x – 6 = 0
⇒ 2x(x – 2) + 3(x – 2) = 0
⇒ (2x + 3)(x – 2) = 0
⇒ x – 2 = 0
⇒ x = 2 (∵ 2x + 3 ≠ 0 as x > 0)
Hence Swathi’s present age = (2 + 7) years
= 9 years
Varun’s present age = (5 × 22 + 7) years = 27 years

Question 8.
A chess board contains 64 equal squares and the area of each square is 6.25 cm2. A border round the board is 2 cm wide find its side.
Solution:
Let the length of the side of the chess board be x cm. Then, Area of 64 squares = (x – 4)2
(x – 4)2 = 64 × 6.25
⇒ x2 – 8x+ 16 = 400
⇒ x2 – 8x-384 = 0
⇒ x2 – 24x + 16x – 384 = 0
⇒ (x – 24)(x + 16) = 0
⇒ x = 24 cm.

Question 9.
Find two consecutive natural numbers whose product is 20.
Solution:
Let a natural number be x.
The next number = x + 1
x (x + 1) = 20
x2 + x – 20 = 0
(x + 5)(x – 4) = 0
x = -5, 4
∴ x = 4 (∵ x ≠ -5, x is natural number)
The next number = 4 + 1 = 5
Two consecutive numbers are 4, 5

Question 10.
A two digit number is such that the product of its digits is 18, when 63 is subtracted from the number, the digits interchange their places. Find the number.
