2 |

y |
0 |
1 |

Now, plot the points A(1, 0) and B(2, 1) on a graph paper.

Join AB and extend it in both the directions.

Then, the line AB is the required graph of x - y = 1.

**Graph of the equation 2x + y = 8**

⇒ y = 8 - 2x

When x = 2, then y = 8 - 2(2) = 8 - 4 = 4

When x = 3, then y = 8 - 2(3) = 8 - 6 = 2

Thus, we have the following table:

Draw the graph for each of the equations x + y = 6 and x - y = 2 on the same graph paper and find the coordinates of the point where the two straight lines intersect.

*Back answer incorrect.

**Graph of the equation x + y = 6**

⇒ y = 6 - x

When x = 2, then y = 6 - 2 = 4

When x = 3, then y = 6 - 3 = 3

Thus, we have the following table:

x |
2 |
3 |

y |
4 |
3 |

Now, plot the points A(2, 4) and B(3, 3) on a graph paper.

Join AB and extend it in both the directions.

Then, the line AB is the required graph of x + y = 6.

**Graph of the equation x - y = 2**

⇒ y = x - 2

When x = 3, then y = 3 - 2 = 1

When x = 4, then y = 4 - 2 = 2

Now, plot the points C(3, 1) and D(4, 2) on a graph paper.

Join CD and extend it in both the directions.

Then, the line CD is the required graph of x - y = 2.

The two graph lines intersect at point D(4, 2).

Two students A and B contributed Rs. 100 towards the Prime Minister's Relief Fund to help the earthquake victims. Write a linear equation to satisfy the above data and draw its graph.

Let the amount contributed by students A and B be Rs. x and Rs. y respectively.

Total contribution = 100

⇒** x + y = 100**

⇒ y = 100 - x

When x = 25, then y = 100 - 25 = 75

When x = 50, then y = 100 - 50 = 50

Thus, we have the following table:

x |
25 |
50 |

y |
75 |
50 |

Now, plot the points A(25, 75) and B(50, 50) on a graph paper.

Join AB and extend it in both the directions.

Then, the line AB is the required graph of x + y = 100.
