(v) True

(vi) False

**Question 3.**

**If x ∈ N, find the solution set of inequations,**

**(i) 5x + 3 ≤ 2x + 18**

**(ii) 3x – 2 < 19 – 4x**

**Solution:**

x = {1, 2}

**Question 4.**

**If the replacement set is the set of whole numbers, Solve:**

**(i) x + 7 ≤ 11**

**(ii) 3x – 1 > 8**

**(iii) 8 – x > 5**

**(iv) 7 – 3x ≥ – \(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\)**

**(v) x – \(\frac { 3 }{ 2 }\) < \(\frac { 3 }{ 2 }\) – x**

**(vi) 18 ≤ 3x – 2**

**Solution:**

**Question 5.**

**Solve the inequation :**

**3 – 2x ≥ x – 12 given that x ∈ N. [1987]**

**Solution:**

3 – 2x ≥ x – 12

⇒ – 2x – x ≥ – 12 – 3

⇒ – 3x ≥ -15

⇒ – x ≥ – 5

⇒ x ≤ 5

Solution Set= {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} or {x ∈ N : x ≤ 5}

**Question 6.**

**If 25 – 4x ≤ 16, find:**

**(i) the smallest value of x, when x is a real number**

**(ii) the smallest value of x, when x is an integer.**

**Solution:**

25 – 4x ≤ 16

⇒ – 4x ≤ 16 – 25

⇒ – 4x ≤ – 9

⇒ 4x ≥ 9

x ≥ \(\frac { 9 }{ 4 }\)

(i) The smallest value of x, when x is a real number \(\frac { 9 }{ 4 }\) or 2.25

(ii) The smallest value of x, when x is an integer 3.

**Question 7.**

**If the replacement set is the set of real numbers, solve:**

**Solution:**

**Question 8.**

**Find the smallest value of x for which 5 – 2x < 5\(\frac { 1 }{ 2 }\) – \(\frac { 5 }{ 3 }\) x, where x is an integer.**

**Solution:**

**Question 9.**

**Find the largest value of x for which 2 (x – 1) ≤ 9 – x and x ∈ W.**

**Solution:**

2 (x – 1) ≤ 9 – x

⇒ 2x – 2 ≤ 9 – x

⇒ 2x + x ≤ 9 + 2

⇒ 3x ≤ 11

⇒ x ≤ \(\frac { 11 }{ 3 }\)

⇒ x ≤ 3\(\frac { 2 }{ 3 }\)

x ∈ W and value of x is largest x = 3

**Question 10.**

**Solve the inequation:**

**12 + 1\(\frac { 5 }{ 6 }\) x ≤ 5 + 3x and x ∈ R. (1999)**

**Solution:**

**Question 11.**

**Given x ∈ (integers), find the solution set of: -5 ≤ 2x – 3 < x + 2.**

**Solution:**

-5 ≤ 2x – 3 < x + 2

(i) -5 ≤ 2x – 3

⇒ -2x ≤ -3 + 5

⇒ -2x ≤ 2

⇒ x ≤ -1

⇒ -1 ≤ x

(ii) 2x – 3 < x + 2

⇒ 2x – x < 2 + 3

⇒ x < 5

From (i) and (ii),

-1 ≤ x < 5

x = {-1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4}

**Question 12.**

**Given x ∈ (whole numbers), find the solution set of: -1 ≤ 3 + 4x < 23.**

**Solution:**

-1 ≤ 3 + 4x < 23

(i) -1 ≤ 3 + 4x

⇒ -1 – 3 ≤ 4x

⇒ -4 < 4x

⇒ -1 ≤ x

(ii) 3 + 4x < 23

⇒ 4x < 23 – 3

⇒ 4x < 20

⇒ x < 5

From (i) and (ii)

-1 ≤ x < 5 and x ∈ W

Solution set = {0, 1, 2, 3, 4}
