Two students A and B contributed ₹ 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 contribution of A and B be ₹ x and ₹ y, respectively.
Total contribution of A and B = ₹ x + ₹ y = ₹ (x + y)
It is given that the total contribution of A and B is ₹ 100.
∴ x + y = 100
This is the linear equation satisfying the the given data.
x + y = 100
⇒ y = 100
When x = 10, y = 100
When x = 40, y = 100
When x = 60, y = 100
Thus, the points on the line x + y = 100 are as given in the following table:
Plotting the points (10, (40, (, x + y = 100.
