Worksheet on Problems on Simultaneous Linear Equations

The questions in the worksheet on problems on simultaneous linear equations can be solved in the method of elimination and method of substitution can be used to find the solution of system of two variables linear equations.

1. The sum of two numbers is 50 and their difference is 22. Find the numbers. 

2. One number is three times the other number. The difference between the two numbers is 12. Find the two numbers. 

3. The sum of two numbers is 9. The difference in their squares is also 9. Find the number. 

4. The difference between the two numbers is 7. Two times the smaller number added to the larger number gives 22. Find the two numbers. 

5. 3 tables and 2 chairs cost Rs. 1900 and 2 tables and 4 chairs cost Rs. 1800. Find the cost of table and a chair. 

6. A lady has only Rs. 1 and Rs.2 coin in her purse. If in all she has 50 coins totaling Rs. 70, Find the number of coins of each type.
