(b) Find the truth set of the inequality x > y + 2, where (x, y) ∈ {(1, 2), (2, 3), (5, 1), (7, 3), (5, 6)}

**S Chand ICSE Maths Solutions:**

(a) x ∈ {2, 4, 6, 9} and y ∈ {4, 6, 18, 27, 54}.

(x, y) = x is a factor of y and x < y.

2 is a factor of 4, 6, 18, 54 and 2 < 4, 2 < 6, 2 < 18, 2 < 54, then (x, y) forms the ordered pairs as (2, 4), (2, 6), (2, 18), (2, 54).

4 is a factor of 4 but 4 = 4, then (4, 4) is not in (x, y).

6 is a factor of 18, 54 and 6 < 18, 6 < 54, then (x, y) forms the ordered pairs as (6, 18), (6, 54).

9 is a factor of 18, 27, 54 and 9 < 18, 9 < 27, 9 < 54 then (x, y) forms the ordered pairs as (9, 18), (9, 27), (9, 54).

Thus, the solution set of (x, y) is {(2, 4), (2, 6), (2, 18), (2, 54), (6, 18), (6, 54), (9, 18), (9, 27), (9, 54)}.

**S Chand ICSE Maths Solutions:**

(i) Given replacement set is {1, 2}.

Now given inequality is 5/x > 7 ⇒ x < 5/7 ⇒ x < 0.71

Thus, the solution set of the given inequality is x ∈ φ.

(ii) Given replacement set is {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}.

Now given inequality is 5/x > 2 ⇒ x < 5/2 ⇒ x < 2.5

Thus, the solution set of the given inequality is x ∈ {1, 2}.

(iii) Given replacement set is {-3, -2, -1, 1, 2, 3}.

Now given equation is x^{2} = 9 ⇒ x = 3 or -3.

Thus, the solution set of the given equation is x ∈ {-3, 3}.

(iv) Given replacement set is {0, 1, 2, 3}.

Now given equation is x + 1/x = 2 ⇒ (x^{2} + 1) = 2x ⇒ (x^{2} -2x + 1) = 0 ⇒ (x – 1)^{2} = 0 ⇒ (x – 1) = 0 ⇒ x = 1.

Thus, the solution set of the given equation is x ∈ {1}.

(v) Given replacement set is {-4, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4}.

Now given inequality is 3x^{2} < 2x ⇒ 3x^{2} – 2x < 0 ⇒ x(3x – 2) < 0 ⇒ 0 < x < 2/3 ⇒ 0 < x < 0.66

Thus, the solution set of the given inequality is x ∈ φ.

(vi) Given replacement set is {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10}.

Now given inequality is 2(x – 3) < 1 ⇒ x – 3 < 0.5 ⇒ x < 3.5.

Thus, the solution set of the given inequality is x ∈ {1, 2, 3}.

**S Chand ICSE Maths Solutions:**

The lengths of the three sides of a triangle are x, x+1, x+2.

(i)

Since the sum of the lengths of any two sides of a triangle is always greater than the length of its third side, we have three inequality as below.

x + (x + 1) > (x + 2) ⇒ 2x + 1 > x + 2 ⇒ x > 1 …(1)

x + (x + 2) > (x + 1) ⇒ 2x + 2 > x + 1 ⇒ x > -1 …(2)

(x + 1) + (x + 2) > x ⇒ 2x + 3 > x ⇒ x > -3 …(3)

On combining (1), (2), (3), we get x > 1.

(ii) Since replacement set of x is an integer, means x ∈ {…, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, …}.

The solution set of x > 1 is x ∈ { 2, 3, 4, …}.

**S Chand ICSE Maths Solutions:**

(a) x + 10 = y + 14 ⇒ x – y = 14 – 10 ⇒ x – y = 4 ⇒ x – y > 0 ⇒ x > y.

Thus, the given statement “If x + 10 = y + 14, then x > y” is **TRUE**.

(b) |-4| – 4 = 4 – 4 = 0

Thus, the given statement “|-4| – 4 = 8” is **FALSE**.

Thus, the given statement “If 10 – x > 3, then x < 7” is **TRUE**.

(d) p = q + 2 ⇒ p – q = 2 ⇒ p – q > 0 ⇒ p > q

Thus, the given statement “If p = q + 2, then p > q” is **TRUE**.

(e) a < b ⇒ 1/a > 1/b

Thus, the given statement “If a and b are two negative integers such that a < b, then 1/a < 1/b” is **FALSE**.

(f) 3x – 2 ≥ 5 ⇒ 3x ≥ 7 ⇒ x ≥ 7/3 ⇒ x ≥ 2.3

Thus, the given statement “3 ∈ {x : 3x – 2 ≥ 5}” is **TRUE**.
