#### EXERCISE 9.1 PAGE NO: 9.5

**Solve each of the following equations and also verify your solution:**

**1. 9 Â¼ = y â€“ 1 1/3**

**Solution:**

We have,

9 Â¼ = y â€“ 1 1/3

37/4 = y â€“ 4/3

Upon solving we get,

y = 37/4 + 4/3

By taking LCM for 4 and 3 is 12

y = (37Ã—3)/12 + (4Ã—4)/12

= 111/12 + 16/12

= (111 + 16)/12

= 127/12

âˆ´ y = 127/12

Verification-

RHS = y â€“ 1 1/3

= 127/12 â€“ 4/3

= (127 â€“ 16)/12

= 111/12

= 37/4

= 9 Â¼

= LHS

**2. 5x/3 + 2/5 = 1**

**Solution:**

We have,

5x/3 + 2/5 = 1

5x/3 = 1 â€“ 2/5 (by taking LCM)

= (5-2)/5

By using cross-multiplication we get,

5x/3 = 3/5

5x = (3Ã—3)/5

x = 9/(5Ã—5)

= 9/25

âˆ´ x = 9/25

Verification-

LHS = 5x/3 + 2/5

= 5/3 Ã— 9/25 + 2/5

= 3/5 + 2/5

= (3 + 2)/5

= 5/5

= 1

= RHS

**3. x/2 + x/3 + x/4 = 13**

**Solution:**

We have,

x/2 + x/3 + x/4 = 13

let us take LCM for 2, 3 and 4 which is 12

(xÃ—6)/12 + (xÃ—4)/12 + (xÃ—3)/12 = 13

6x/12 + 4x/12 + 3x/12 = 13

(6x+4x+3x)/12 = 13

13x/12 = 13

By using cross-multiplication we get,

13x = 12Ã—13

x = 156/13

= 12

âˆ´ x = 12

Verification-

LHS = x/2 + x/3 + x/4

x/2 â€“ 4/5 + x/5 + 3x/10 = 1/5

upon solving we get,

x/2 + x/5 + 3x/10 = 1/5 + 4/5

by taking LCM for 2, 5 and 10 which is 10

(xÃ—5)/10 + (xÃ—2)/10 + (3xÃ—1)/10 = 5/5

5x/10 + 2x/10 + 3x/10 = 1

(5x+2x+3x)/10 = 1

10x/10 = 1

x = 1

âˆ´ x = 1

Verification-

= (1 â€“ 350)/10

7/x = -349/10

By using cross-multiplication we get,

x = -70/349

âˆ´ x = -70/349

Verification-

LHS = 7/x + 35

= 7/(-70/349) + 35
