EXERCISE 4.4


Page No 77:

Question 1:

Give the geometric representation of y = 3 as an equation

(I) in one variable

(II) in two variables

Answer:

In one variable, y = 3 represents a point as shown in following figure.

In two variables, y = 3 represents a straight line passing through point (0, 3) and parallel to x-axis. It is a collection of all points of the plane, having their y-coordinate as 3.


Question 2:

Give the geometric representations of 2x + 9 = 0 as an equation

(1) in one variable

(2) in two variables

Answer:

(1) In one variable, 2x + 9 = 0 represents a point as shown in the following figure.

(2) In two variables, 2x + 9 = 0 represents a straight line passing through point (−4.5, 0) and parallel to y-axis. It is a collection of all points of the plane, having their x-coordinate as 4.5.
