**IMPORTANT POINTS**

**1. Simple Equations :** A mathematical statement, which states that two expressions are equal, is called simple equation.

**2. Properties of Simple Equation :**

**(i)** If same quantity is added to both the sides of simple equation, the sums are equal.

**For Example :**

x = 6 ⇒ x + a = 6 + a [Adding a on both the sides]

**(ii)** If same quantity is subtracted from both the sides of simple equation, the remainders are equal.

**For Example :**

x = 6 ⇒ x-a = 6 – a [Subtracting a on both the sides]

**(iii)** If both the sides of an equation are multiplied by the same quantity, the products are equal.

For Example :

x = 6 ⇒ a x x = a x 6 i.e. ax = 6a [Multiplying both the sides by a]

**(iv)** If both the sides of simple equation are divided by the same quantity, the quotients are equal.

**For Example :**

x = 6 ⇒ \(\frac { x }{ a }\) = \(\frac { 6 }{ a }\) [Dividing both the sides by a]

### Simple (Linear) Equations Exercise 22D – Selina Concise Mathematics Class 6 ICSE Solutions

**Question 1.**

**A number increased by 17 becomes 54. Find the number.**

**Solution:**

Let the required number = x

∴ According to the sum :

x+17 = 54

⇒ x = 54-17

⇒ x = 37

Required number = 37

**Question 2.**

**A number decreased by 8 equals 26, find the number.**

**Solution:**

Let required number = A

∴According to the sum :

x – 8 = 26

⇒A = 26 + 8

⇒A = 34

∴Required number = 34

**Solution:**

**Question 19.**

**Find three consecutive integers such that their sum is 78.**

**Solution:**

Sum of three consecutive numbers = 78

Let first number = x

Then second number = x + 1

and third number = x + 2

Then x + x+1+x + 2 = 78

⇒ 3x + 3 = 78

⇒ 3x = 78 – 3 = 75

⇒ x = \(\frac { 75 }{ 3 }\) =25

∴First number=25

Second number = 25 + 1 = 26

and third number = 26 + 1 = 27

Then the three required numbers are 25, 26,27

**Question 20.**

**The sum of three consecutive numbers is 54. Taking the middle number as x, find:**

**(i) expression for the smallest number and the largest number.**

**(ii) the three numbers.**

**Solution:**

Sum of three consecutive numbers = 54

Middle number = x

(i) The first number = x – 1

and third number = x + 1

(ii) ∴x + x-1+x+1 = 54

⇒ 3x = 54

⇒ x= \(\frac { 54 }{ 3 }\) = 18

∴First number =18-1 = 17

and third number =18 + 1 = 19

∴Three required numbers are 17, 18,19
