Solution:

(a) For m = 10, LHS = 5 x 10 = 50, RHS = 60

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

∴ m = 10 is not the solution of the equation

For m = 5, LHS = 5×5 = 25, RHS = 60

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

∴ m = 5 is not the solution of the equation

For m = 12, LHS = 5 x 12 = 60, RHS = 60

Here, LHS = RHS

∴ m = 12 is the solution of the equation

For m = 15 LHS = 5 x 15 = 75, RHS = 60

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

∴ m = 15 is not the solution of the equation

(b) n + 12 = 20 (12, 8, 20, 0)

For n = 12, LHS = 12 + 12 = 24, RHS = 20

∴ n = 12 is not the solution of the equation

For n = 8, LHS = 8 + 12 = 20, RHS = 20

Here, LHS = RHS

∴ n = 8 is the solution of the equation

For n = 20, LHS = 20 + 12 = 32, RHS = 20

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

∴ n = 20 is not the solution of the equation

For n = 0, LHS = 0 + 12 – 12, RHS = 20

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

∴ n= 0 is not the solution of the equation

(c) p – 5 = 5 (0, 10, 5, -5)

For p = 0, LHS = 0 – 5 = -5, RHS = 5

Here, LHS ≠ RHS

For p = 10, LHS = 10 – 5 = 5, RHS = 5

Here, LHS = RHS

∴ p = 10 is the solution of the equation

For p = 5, LHS = 5-5-0, RHS = 5

Here LHS ≠ RHS

Ex 11.5 Class 6 Maths Question 4.

(a) Complete the table and by inspection of the table find the solution to the equation m + 10 = 6

(b) Complete the table and by inspection of the table find the solution to the equation 51 – 35

(c) Complete the table and find the solution of the equation g = 4 using the table.

(d) Complete the table and find the solution to the equation m – 7 = 3

Solution:

(a) By inspections, we have

So, m – 6 is the solution of the equation.

(b) Given that 5t = 35

So, t = 7 is the solution of the equation.

(c) Given that = 35

So, z = 12 is the solution of the equation.

(d) Given that m – 7 = 3

So, m = 10 is the solution of the equation.

Ex 11.5 Class 6 Maths Question 5.

Solve the following riddles, you may yourself construct such riddles. Who am I?

(i) Go round a square

Counting every corner

Thrice and no more!

Add the count to me

To get exactly thirty four!

(ii) For each day of the week

Make an upcount from me

If you make no mistake

you will get twenty three!

(iii) I am a special number

Take away from me a six!

A whole cricket team

You will still be able to fix!

(iv) Tell me who I am

I shall give you a pretty clue!

you will get me back

If you take me out of twenty two!

Solution:

(i) According to the condition,

I + 12 = 34 or x + 12 = 34

∴ By inspection, we have

22 + 12 = 34

So, I am 22.

(ii) Let I am ‘x’.

We know that there are 7 days in a week.

∴ upcounting from x for 7, the sum = 23

By inspections, we have

16 + 7 = 23

∴ x = 16

Thus I am 16.

(iii) Let the special number be x and there are 11 players in cricket team.

∴ Special Number -6 = 11

∴ x – 6 = 11

By inspection, we get

17 – 6 = 11

∴ x = 17

Thus I am 17.

(iv) Suppose I am ‘x’.

∴ 22 – I = I

or 22 – x = x

By inspection, we have

22 – 11 = 11

∴ x = 11

Thus I am 11.
