# Case study Chapter 4 (Determinant)

Case study 2:- Read the following and answer the question(Case study problem determinant 2)

Reshma wants to donate a rectangular plot of land for a school of her village. When she was asked by construction agency to give dimensions of the plot, she said that if its length is decreased by 50 m and breadth is increased by 50m, then its area will remain same, but if length is decreased by 10 m and breadth is decreased by 20m, then its area will decreased by 5300 m².

(i) If length of recangular plot of land be x m and breadth y m then the situation described in problem may be written in system of linear equation as

(a) x + y = 50, x + 2y = 550

(b)  x – y = 100, 2x + y = 500

(c) x – y = 50, 2x + y = 550

(d) x + y = 50, 2x + y = 550

(ii) System of linear equations

x – y = 50,

2x + y = 550

may be written in matrix equation as

(a)

(b)

(c)

(d)

(iii) If AX = B, where A, X, B are matrix, then X should be

(a) X = AB                              (b)

(c)                  (d)

(iv) If then is

(a)

(b)

(c)

(d)

(v) The length and breadth of recangular plot donated by Reshma for school is

(a) 200 m× 100 m                       (b) 200 m× 150 m

(c) 150 m×100 m                         (d) 250 m×150 m

From question

(x – 50)(y + 50) = xy

⇒ 50 x – 50 y = 2500

⇒ x – y = 50 ——–(i)

Also,

(x – 10)(y – 20) = xy -5300

⇒ xy – 20 x – 10y + 200 = xy – 5300

⇒ -20x – 10y = -5300 – 200

⇒ 2x + y = 550   ——-(ii)

Hence, the represented system of linear equations is

x – y = 50,

2x + y = 550

We have system of linea equations,

x – y = 50,

2x + y = 550

We can write matrix system as

We have

AX = B

Pre multiplying both sides, we have

We have

⇒ |A| = 1 + 2 = 3 ≠ 0

NOW,

⇒  x  = 200, y = 150

Hence dimension is

200 m×150 m
