## Tamilnadu Samacheer Kalvi 7th Maths Solutions Term 1 Chapter 3 Algebra Ex 3.3

Question 1.

Fill in the blanks.

(i) An expressions equated to another expression is called _______.

(ii) If a = 5, the value of 2a + 5 is _______.

(iii) The sum of twice and four times of the variable x is ______.

Solution:

(i) an equation

(ii) 15

(iii) 6x

Question 2:

Say True or False

(i) Every algebraic expression is an equation.

(ii) The expression 7x + 1 cannot be reduced without knowing the value of x.

(iii) To add two like terms, its coefficients can be added.

Solution:

(i) False

(ii) True

(iii) True

Question 3.

Solve (i) x + 5 = 8

(ii) p – 3 = 1

(iii) 2x = 30

(iv) \(\frac{m}{6}\) = 5

(v) 7x + 10 = 80

Solution:

(i) Given x + 5 = 8 ; Subtracting 5 on both the sides

x + 5 – 5 = 8 – 5

x = 3

(ii) Given p – 3 = 7 ; Adding 3 on both the sides,

p – 3 + 3 = 7 + 3

p = 10

(iii) Given 2x = 30 ; Dividing both the sides by 2,

\(\frac{2 x}{2}=\frac{30}{2}\)

x = 15

(iv) Given \(\frac{m}{6}\) = 5 ; Multiplying both the sides by 6,

\(\frac{m}{6}\) × 6 = 5 × 6

m = 30

(v) Given 7x + 10 = 80 ; Subtracting 10 from both the sides,

7x + 10 – 10 = 80 – 10

7x = 70

Dividing both sides by 7,

\(\frac{7 x}{7}=\frac{70}{7}\)

x = 10

Question 4.

What should be added to 3x + 6y to get 5x + 8y?

Solution:

To get the expression we should subtract 3x + 6y from 5x + 8y

5x + 8y – (3x + 6y) = 5x + 8y + (-3x – 6y)

= 5x + 8y – 3x – 6y = (5 – 3) x + (8 – 6) y

= 2x + 2y

So 2x + 2y should be added.

Question 5.

Nine added to thrice a whole number gives 45. Find the number

Solution:

Let the whole number required be x.

Thrice the whole number = 3x

Nine added to it = 3x + 9

Given 3x + 9 = 45

3x + 9 – 9 = 45 – 9 [Subtracting 9 on both sides]

3x = 36

\(\frac{3 x}{3}=\frac{36}{3}\)

x = 12

∴ The required whole number is 12

Question 6.

Find the two consecutive odd numbers whose sum is 200

Solution:

Let the two consecutive odd numbers be x and x + 2

∴ Their sum = 200

x + (x + 2) = 200

x + x + 2 = 200

2x + 2 = 200

2x + 2 – 2 = 200 – 2 [∵ Subtracting 2 from both sides]

2x = 198

\(\frac{2 x}{2}=\frac{198}{2}\) [Dividing both sides by 2]

x = 99

The numbers will be 99 and 99 + 2.

∴ The numbers will be 99 and 101.

Question 7.

The taxi charges in a city comprise of a fixed charge of ₹ 100 for 5 kms and ₹ 16 per km for ever additional km. If the amount paid at the end of the trip was ₹ 740, find the distance traveled.

Solution:

Let the distance travelled by taxi be ‘x’ km

For the first 5 km the charge = ₹ 100

For additional kms the charge = ₹ 16(x – 5)

∴ For x kms the charge = 100 + 16(x – 5)

Amount paid = ₹ 740

∴ 100 + 16 (x – 5) = 740

100 + 16 (x – 5) – 100 = 740- 100

16 (x – 5) = 640

\(\frac{16(x-5)}{16}=\frac{640}{16}\)

x – 5 = 40

x – 5 + 5 = 45 + 5

x = 45

x = 45 km

∴ Total distance travelled = 45 km

Objective Type Questions

Question 8.

The generalization of the number pattern 3, 6, 9, 12, …………. is

(i) n

(ii) 2n

(iii) 3n

(iv) 4n

Solution:

(iii) 3n

Question 9.

The solution of 3x + 5 = x + 9 is t

(i) 2

(ii) 3

(iii) 5

(iv)4

Solution:

(i) 2

Hint: 3x + 5 = x + 9 ⇒ 3x – x = 9 – 5 ⇒ 2x = 4 ⇒ x = 2

Question 10.
