**Ex 3.2 Class 10 Maths Question 1.
** Form the pair of linear equations of the following problems and find their solutions graphically:

(i) 10 students of class X took part in a Mathematics quiz. If the number of girls is 4 more than the number of boys, find the number of boys and girls who took part in the quiz.

(ii) 5 pencils and 7 pens together cost ₹50, whereas 7 pencils and 5 pens together cost ₹46. Find the cost of one pencil and that of one pen.

**Solution:**

**Ex 3.2 Class 10 Maths Question 2.
**On comparing the ratios \(\frac { { a }_{ 1 } }{ { a }_{ 2 } }\), \(\frac { { b }_{ 1 } }{ { b }_{ 2 } }\)

and \(\frac { { c }_{ 1 } }{ { c }_{ 2 } }\) , find out whether the lines representing the following pairs of linear equations intersect at a point, are parallel or coincident:

**(i)**5x – 4y + 8 = 0, 7x + 6y – 9 = 0
