Other Exercises

Question 1.
The numerator of a fraction is 4 less than the denominator. If the numerator is decreased by 2 and denominator is increased by 1, then the denominator is eight times the numerator. Find the fraction. (C.B.S.E. 1990)
Solution:
Let numerator of a fraction = x
and denominator = y
Then fraction = $$\frac { x}{ y}$$
According to the conditions,
y – x = 4 ….(i)
and 8 (x – 2) = y + 1
=> 8x – 16 – y + 1
=> 8x – y = 1 + 16
=> 8x – y= 17 ….(ii)
7x = 21 => x = 3
y – 3 = 4
=> y = 4 + 3 = 7
Hence fraction = $$\frac { x}{ y}$$

Question 2.
A fraction becomes $$\frac { 9 }{ 11 }$$ if 2 is added to both numerator and the denominator. If 3 is added to both the numerator and the denominator, it becomes $$\frac { 5 }{ 6 }$$. Find the fraction. (C.B.S.E. 1990)
Solution:
Let the numerator of a fraction = x
and denominator = y Fraction = $$\frac { x}{ y}$$ = $$\frac { 7 }{ 9 }$$

Question 3.
A fraction becomes $$\frac { 1 }{ 3 }$$ if 1 is subtracted from both its numerator and denominator. If 1 is added to both the numerator and denominator, it becomes $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$. Find the fraction. (C.B.S.E. 1993C)
Solution:
Let the numerator of a fraction = x
and denominator = y Question 4.
If we add 1 to the numerator and subtract 1 from the denominator, a fraction becomes 1. It also becomes $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ if we only add 1 to the denominator. What is the fraction.
Solution:
Let numerator of a fraction = x
and denominator = y Question 5.
The sum of the numerator and denominator of a fraction is 12. If the denominator is increased by 3, the fraction becomes $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$. Find the fraction. (C.B.S.E. 2006C)
Solution:
Let the numerator of a fraction = x
and denominator = y Fraction = $$\frac { x}{ y}$$ = $$\frac { 5 }{ 7 }$$

Question 6.
When 3 is added to the denominator and 2 is subtracted from the numerator a fraction becomes $$\frac { 1 }{ 4 }$$. And, when 6 is added to numerator and the denominator is multiplied by 3, it becomes $$\frac { 2 }{ 3 }$$. Find the fraction.
Solution:
Let numerator of a fraction = x
and denominator = y Question 7.
The sum of a numerator and denominator of a fraction is 18. If the denominator is increased by 2, the fraction reduces to $$\frac { 1 }{ 3 }$$. Find the fraction. (C.B.S.E. 1997C)
Solution:
Let the numerator of a fractrion = x
and denominator = y Question 8.
If 2 is added to the numerator of a fraction, it reduces to $$\frac { 1 }{ 2 }$$ and if 1 is subtracted from the denominator, it 1 reduces to $$\frac { 1 }{ 3 }$$. Find the fraction. (C.B.S.E. 1997C)
Solution:
Let the numerator of a fraction = x
and denominator = y  Question 9.
The sum of the numerator and denominator of a fraction is 4 more than twice the numerator. If the numerator and denominator are increased by 3, they are in the ratio 2 : 3. Determine the fraction (C.B.S.E. 2001C)
Solution:
Let the numerator of a fraction = x
and denominator = y Question 10.
If the numerator of a fraction is multiplied by 2 and the denominator is reduced by 5 the fraction becomes $$\frac { 6 }{ 5 }$$. And, if the denominator is doubled and the numerator is increased by 8, the fraction becomes $$\frac { 2 }{ 5 }$$. Find the fraction.
Solution:
Let the numerator of fraction = x
and denominator = y Question 11.
The sum of the numerator and denominator of a fraction is 3 less than twice the denominator. If the numerator and denominator are decreased by 1, the numerator becomes half the denominator. Determine the fraction. (C.B.S.E. 2001C)
Solution:
Let the numerator of a fraction = x
and denominator = y
Then fraction = $$\frac { x }{ y }$$
According to the conditions given,
x + y = 2y – 3
=> x + y – 2y = -3 Hope given RD Sharma Class 10 Solutions Chapter 3 Pair of Linear Equations in Two Variables Ex 3.8 are helpful to complete your math homework.
