#### Question 1:

Find* x* satisfying each of the following equations:

(i)

(ii)

(iii)

(iv)

(v)

(vi)

#### Answer:

(i)

If *x* > 3 then = *x* − 3

⇒ *x* − 3 = 2

⇒ *x* = 2 + 3 = 5

If *x* < 3 then = − (*x* − 3) = 3 − *x*

⇒ 3 − *x* = 2

⇒ *x* = 3 − 2 = 1

∴ *x* = 1 and 5

(ii)

If *x* > − 2 then = *x* + 2

⇒ *x* + 2 = 1

⇒ *x* = 1 − 2 = − 1

If *x* < − 2 then = − (*x* + 2) = −*x* − 2

⇒ −*x* − 2 = 1

⇒ −*x* = 1 + 2

⇒ *x* = − 3

∴ *x* = −1 and −3

(iii)

If *x* < 1 then −(*x* − 1) = −(*x* − 3)

⇒ *x* − 1 = *x* − 3

This is an invalid equation.

If 1 < *x* < 3 then (*x* − 1) = −(*x* − 3)

⇒ *x* − 1 = −*x* + 3

⇒ *x* + *x* = 3 + 1

⇒ 2*x* = 4

⇒ *x* = 2

If *x* > 3 then (*x* − 1) = (*x* − 3)

This is again an invalid equation.

Thus, *x* = 2 satisfies the given equation.

(iv)

If *x* < 3 then −(*x* − 3) = −(*x* − 4)

⇒ *x* − 3 = *x* − 4

This is an invalid equation.

If 3 < *x* < 4 then (*x* − 3) = −(*x* − 4)

⇒ *x* − 3 = −*x* + 4

⇒ *x* + *x* = 4 + 3

⇒ 2*x* = 7

⇒ *x* =

If *x* > 4 then (*x* − 3) = (*x* − 4)

This is again an invalid equation.

Thus, *x* = satisfies the given equation.

(v)

If *x* < −2 then −(*x* + 2) = −(*x* − 5)

⇒ *x* + 2 = *x* − 5

This is an invalid equation.

If −2 < *x* < 5 then (*x* + 2) = −(*x* − 5)

⇒ *x* + 2 = −*x* + 5

⇒ *x* + *x* = 5 − 2

⇒ 2*x* = 3

⇒ *x* =

If *x* > 5 then (*x* + 2) = (*x* − 5)

This is again an invalid equation.

Thus, *x* = satisfies the given equation.

(vi)

If *x* < −1 then −*x* = −(*x* + 1)

⇒ *x* = *x* + 1

This is an invalid equation.

If −1 < *x* < 0 then −*x* = (*x* + 1)

⇒ −*x* = *x* + 1

⇒ *x* + *x* = −1

⇒ 2*x* = −1

⇒ *x* =

If *x* > 0 then *x* = (*x* + 1)

This is again an invalid equation.

Thus, *x* = satisfies the given equation.

#### Question 2:

Prove that if 1 < *x* < 4 and 1 < *y* < 4, then |*x − y*| < 3.

#### Answer:

Given: 1 < *x* < 4 and 1 < *y* < 4

To prove:

Proof:

Consider the following cases.

Case 1: *x* < *y*

As 1 < *x* < 4 and 1 < *y* < 4

⇒ 1 < *x *< *y *< 4

⇒ 1 − *x* < *x *− *x* < *y *− *x* < 4 − *x *(As *x* is a positive number)

⇒ 1 − *x* < 0 < *y *− *x* < 4 − *x *…(1)

Consider, _{ }

=

< 4 − *x *(From (1))

< 3 (As 1 < *x* < 4)

Case 2: *x* > *y*

As 1 < *x* < 4 and 1 < *y* < 4

⇒ 4 > *x *> *y *> 1

⇒ 4 − *y* > *x *− *y* > *y *− *y* > 1 − *y *(As *y *is a positive number)

⇒ 4 − *y* > *x *− *y* > 0 > 1 − *y *…(2)

Consider,

< 4 − *y*

< 3 (As 1 < *y* < 4)

Thus, if 1 < *x* < 4 and 1 < *y* < 4, then _{ }< 3

#### Question 3:

Find two numbers *x* and *y* for which.

#### Answer:

The given equation is valid equation when either both *x* and *y *are positive or both *x* and *y *are negative.

Let us consider *x* = 2 and *y* = 3

Now consider *x* = −2 and *y* = −3

Thus, *x *= 2, *y* = 3 and *x *= −2, *y* = −3 satisfy the given equation.

#### Page No 194:

#### Question 4:

Are there numbers *x* and *y* for which?

#### Answer:

Yes, there are numbers which satisfy the condition

Let us check the validity of the given inequality for both positive and negative numbers.

Let us consider *x* = −2 and *y* = 3 (When magnitude of *x* < magnitude of *y*)

Let us consider *x* = −5 and *y* = 3 (When magnitude of *x* > magnitude of *y*)

Similarly, when* x* is a positive and *y* is a negative number.

Thus, the given inequality is valid when *x* is positive and *y* is negative or vice-versa.

#### Page No 194:

#### Question 5:

Are there numbers *x *and *y* such that?

#### Answer:

No, the given inequality is not valid for any number *x *and *y*.

If both *x* and *y* are positive numbers or both* x *and *y* are negative numbers, then

If *x* is positive and *y* is negative or vice-versa then
