Exercise 11.4
1. Answer the following:
(a) Take Sarita’s present age to be $y$ years.
(i) What will be her age 5 years from now?
Ans: Given, the present age of Sarita is $y$ years.
\[{\text{After }}5{\text{ years Sarita's age = Sarita's present age + }}5\]
\[{\text{After }}5{\text{ years Sarita's age = }}\left( {y{\text{ + }}5} \right){\text{ years}}\]
(ii) What was her age 3 years back?
Ans: Given, the present age of Sarita is $y$ years.
\[3{\text{ years back Sarita's age = Sarita's present age }}  3\]
\[3{\text{ years back Sarita's age = }}\left( {y  3} \right){\text{ years}}\]
(iii) Sarita’s grandfather is 6 times her age. What is the age of her grandfather?
Ans: Given, the present age of Sarita is $y$ years and her grandfather’s age is 6 times her age.
(iv) Grandmother is 2 years younger than grandfather. What is grandmother’s age?
Ans: Obtained age of Sarita’s grandfather is \[6y\] years.
Given, her grandmother is 2 years younger than her grandfather.
(v) Sarita’s father’s age is 5 years more than 3 times Sarita’s age. What is her father’s age?
Ans: Given, the present age of Sarita is $y$ years.
$3\;{\text{times of her present age = Her present age}} \times 3$
$3\;{\text{times of her present age = }}y \times 3$
$3\;{\text{times of her present age = }}3y$
It is also given that her father’s age is 5 years more than 3 times her age.
${\text{Her father's age = }}3{\text{ times of her present age}} + 5$
${\text{Her father's age = }}\left( {3y + 5} \right){\text{ years}}$
(b) The length of a rectangular hall is 4 meters less than 3 times the breadth of the hall. What is the length, if the breadth is $b$ meters?
Ans: Given, the breadth of the hall is $b$ meters.
$3\;{\text{times of breadth of the hall = Breadth of the hall}} \times 3$
$3\;{\text{times of breadth of the hall = }}b \times 3$
$3\;{\text{times of breadth of the hall = }}3b$
It is also given that the length of the hall is 4 meters less than three times the breadth of the hall.
Therefore,
${\text{Length of the hall = }}3{\text{ times breadth of the hall}}  4$
${\text{Length of the hall = }}\left( {3b  4} \right){\text{ meters}}$
(c) A rectangular box has height $h$ cm. Its length is 5 times the height and breadth is 10 cm less than the length. Express the length and the breadth of the box in terms of the height.
Ans: Given, height of the box is $h$cm and length of the box is 5 times of the height.
Therefore,
${\text{Length of the box = Height of the box}} \times 5$
${\text{Length of the box = }}h \times 5$
${\text{Length of the box = }}\left( {5h} \right){\text{ cm}}$
Also it is given that the breadth of the box is 10 cm less than the length of the box.
Hence,
${\text{Breadth of the box = Length of the box}}  10$
${\text{Breadth of the box = }}\left( {5h  10} \right){\text{ cm}}$
(d) Meena, Beena and Leena are climbing the steps to the hilltop. Meena is at step $s$, Beena is 8 steps ahead and Leena 7 steps behind. Where are Beena and Leena? The total number of steps to the hill top is 10 less than 4 times what Meena has reached. Express the total number of steps using $s$.
Ans: Given, Meena is at $s$ step and Beena is 8 steps behind her.
Hence,
\[{\text{Step at which Beena is = }}\left( {{\text{step at which Meena is}}} \right) + 8\]
\[{\text{Step at which Beena is }} = s + 8\]
It is also given that Leena is 7 steps behind Meena.
\[{\text{Step at which Leena is = }}\left( {{\text{step at which Meena is}}} \right)  7\]
\[{\text{Step at which Leena is }} = s  7\]
The total number of steps is also given by 10, less than 4 times what Meena has reached.
Therefore,
${\text{Total number of steps}} = 4{\text{ times of }}\left( {{\text{the step where Meena is}}} \right)  10$
${\text{Total number of steps}} = 4 \times \left( {{\text{the step where Meena is}}} \right)  10$
${\text{Total number of steps}} = 4 \times {\text{s}}  10$
${\text{Total number of steps}} = 4{\text{s}}  10$
(e) A bus travels at $v$ km per hour. It is going from Daspur to Beespur. After the bus has travelled 5 hours, Beespur is still 20 km away. What is the distance from Daspur to Beespur? Express it using $v$.
Ans: The distance $d$ is given by $d = s \times t$, where $s$ is the speed and $t$ is the time.
Given, the speed of the bus is $v$ km per hour and the travel time of the bus is 5 hours.
Therefore, $s = v$ and $t = 5$.
Hence, the distance travelled by the bus in 5 hours is as follows.
$d = v \times 5$
$d = 5v{\text{ km}}$
Since, Beespur is still 20 km away, the distance of Beespur is as follows,
${\text{Distance of Beespur from Daspur = }}d + 20$
${\text{Distance of Beespur from Daspur = }}\left( {5v + 20} \right){\text{ km}}$.
2. Change the following statements using expressions into statements in ordinary language.
(For example, Given Salim scores $r$ runs in a cricket match, Nalin scores $\left( {r + 15} \right)$ runs. In ordinary language – Nalin scores 15 runs more than Salim.)
(a) A notebook costs ₹ $p$. A book costs ₹ \[3p\]
Ans: Given, the cost of a notebook is ₹ $p$ where the cost of a book is ₹ $3p$.
Therefore,
${\text{The cost of book = }}3p$
${\text{The cost of book }} = {\text{ }}3 \times p$
${\text{The cost of book = }}3{\text{ times }}p$
${\text{The cost of book = }}3{\text{ times cost of notebook}}$
Hence, the cost of a book is 3 times the cost of a notebook.
(b) Tony put $q$ marbles on the table. He has $8q$ marbles in his box.
Ans: Given, the number of marbles on the table is $q$and the number of marbles in the box is $8q$.
Therefore,
${\text{The number of marbles in the box }} = 8q$
${\text{The number of marbles in the box }} = 8 \times q$
${\text{The number of marbles in the box }} = 8{\text{ times }}q$
${\text{The number of marbles in the box }} = 8{\text{ times the number of marbles on the table}}$
Hence, the box contains 8 times the number of marbles on the table.
(c) Our class has $n$ students. The school has $20n$ students.
Ans: Given, the number of students in the class is $n$ whereas the number of students in the school is $20n$.
${\text{The number of students in the school}} = 20n$
${\text{The number of students in the school}} = 20 \times n$
${\text{The number of students in the school}} = 20{\text{ times }}n$
${\text{The number of students in the school}} = 20{\text{ times the number of students in the school}}$
Hence, the total number of students in the school is 20 times that of the number of students in our class.
(d) Jaggu is $z$ years old. His uncle is $4z$ years old and his aunt is $\left( {4z  3} \right)$ years old.
Ans: Given, the age of Jaggu is $z$ years and his uncle is $4z$ years old.
${\text{His uncle's age }} = 4z$
${\text{His uncle's age }} = 4 \times z$
${\text{His uncle's age }} = 4{\text{ times }}z$
${\text{His uncle's age }} = 4{\text{ times Jaggu's age}}$
Hence, Jaggu’s uncle is 4 times older than him.
Given the age of his aunt is $\left( {4z  3} \right)$years.
${\text{His aunt's age }} = 4z  3$
${\text{His aunt's age }} = {\text{His uncle's age}}  3$
Therefore, Jaggu’s aunt is 3 years younger than his uncle.
(e) In an arrangement of dots there are $r$ rows. Each row contains 5 dots
Ans: Given the number of rows are $r$ and each row contains 5 dots.
Therefore,
\[{\text{The total number of dots = 5 }} \times {\text{ the number of rows}}\]
\[{\text{The total number of dots = 5 times the number of rows}}\]
Hence, the total number of dots in the arrangement is 5 times the number of rows.
3. (a) Given Munnu’s age to be $x$ years, can you guess what $\left( {x  2} \right)$ may show?
Can you guess what $\left( {x + 4} \right)$ may show? What $\left( {3x + 7} \right)$ may show?
Ans: Given, the age of Munnu is $x$ years.
Therefore, $\left( {x  2} \right)$ represents 2 years less than $x$.
Hence, \[\left( {x2} \right)\] represents a person who is 2 years younger to Munnu.
Therefore, $\left( {x + 4} \right)$ represents 4 years greater than $x$.
Hence, $\left( {x + 4} \right)$ represents a person who is 4 years older than Munnu.
Therefore, $\left( {3x + 7} \right)$ represents 7 years greater than $3x$.
Since $3x = 3{\text{ times }}x$
Hence, $\left( {3x + 7} \right)$ represents 7 years greater than 3 times $x$ and consequently $\left( {3x + 7} \right)$represents the person whose age is 7 years more than the 3 times of the age of Munnu.
(b) Given Sara’s age today to be $y$ years. Think of her age in the future or in the past.
What will the following expression indicate? \[\left( {y + 7} \right),{\text{ }}\left( {y3} \right),{\text{ }}y + 4\dfrac{1}{2},{\text{ }}y  2\dfrac{1}{2}\]
Ans: Given, the age of Sara is $y$ years.
Therefore, \[\left( {y + 7} \right)\] represents 7 years greater than $y$.
Hence, \[\left( {y + 7} \right)\] represents a person who is 7 years older than Sara.
Therefore, \[\left( {y3} \right)\] represents 3 years less than $y$.
Hence, \[\left( {y3} \right)\] represents the person who is 3 years younger to Sara.
Therefore, \[y + 4\dfrac{1}{2}\] represents \[4\dfrac{1}{2}\] years greater than $y$.
Hence, \[y + 4\dfrac{1}{2}\] represents the person who is \[4\dfrac{1}{2}\] years older than Sara.
Therefore, \[y  2\dfrac{1}{2}\] represents \[2\dfrac{1}{2}\] years less than $y$.
Hence, \[y  2\dfrac{1}{2}\] represents the person who is \[2\dfrac{1}{2}\] years younger to Sara.
(c) Given $n$ students in the class like football, what may $2n$ show? What may $\dfrac{n}{2}$ show?
Ans: Suppose, swimming is another game which is liked by $2n$students.
Given, the number of students in the class who likes football is $n$.
Since $2n = 2{\text{ times }}n$,
$2n = 2{\text{ times of the number of students who like football}}$
Therefore, the number of students who like swimming is twice the number of students who like football.
Suppose tennis is another game which is liked by $\dfrac{n}{2}$students.
Since $\dfrac{n}{2} = {\text{ half of }}n$,
$\dfrac{n}{2} = {\text{ half of the number of students who like football}}$
Therefore, the number of students who like tennis is half the number of students who like football.
