## Haryana Board 8th Class Maths Solutions Chapter 13 Direct and Inverse Proportions Exercise 13.1

Question 1.
Following are the car parking charges near a railway station upto
4 hours — Rs. 60
8 hours — Rs. 100
12 hours — Rs. 140
24 hours — Rs. 180 Check if the parking charges are direct proportion to the parking time.
Solution:
Suppose the parking time of car is x hours and its charges in Rs. is y. If x and y are direct proportion, then  Question 2.
A mixture of paint is prepared by mixing 1 part of red pigments with 8 parts of base. In the following table, find the parts of base that need to be added. Solution:
Let the parts of red pigment = x and
part of base = y.
∴ $$\frac{x}{y}$$ = $$\frac{1}{8}$$
$$\frac{x}{y}$$ = $$\frac{1}{32}$$ = $$\frac{4}{32}$$ = $$\frac{7}{56}$$ = $$\frac{12}{96}$$ = $$\frac{20}{160}$$  Question 3.
In Question 2 above, if 1 part of a red pigment requires 75 mL of base, how much red pigment should we mix with 1800 mL of base ?
Solution:
Let red pigment = x ∴ $$\frac{1}{75}$$ = $$\frac{x}{1800}$$
⇒ x × 75 = 1 × 1800
⇒ x = $$\frac{1800}{75}$$
∴ x = 24
Hence required red pigment = 24.

Question 4.
A machine in a soft drink factory fills 840 bottles in six hours. How many bottles will in fill in five hours ?
Solution:
Let the no. of bottles = x
Number of time and number of bottles vary directly. Now, $$\frac{6}{840}$$ = $$\frac{5}{x}$$
⇒ 6 × x = 5 × 840
⇒ x = $$\frac{5×840}{6}$$
⇒ x = 700
Hence, required bottles = 700. Question 5.
A photograph of a bacteria enlarged 50,000 times attains a length of 5 cm as shown in the diagram. What is the actual length of the bacteria ? If the photograph is enlarged 20,000 times only, what would be enlarged length ? Solution:
Let the length of bacteria = x. Length of bacteria and enlarged times of bacteria vary directly. Now, $$\frac{50,000}{5}$$ = $$\frac{20,000}{x}$$
⇒ 50,000 × x = 5 × 20,000
⇒ x = $$\frac{5×20,000}{50,000}$$
⇒ x = 2
∴ Enlarged length = 2 cm
and Actual length, x1 = $$\frac{2}{20,000}$$
= $$\frac{1}{10,000}$$ = 0.0001 cm.

Question 6.
In a model of a ship, the mast is 9 cm high, while the mast of the actual ship is 12 m high. If the length of the ship is 28 m, how long is the model ship ? Solution:
Try Yourself. Question 7.
Suppose 2 kg of sugar contains 9 × 106 crystals. How many sugar crystals are there in
(i) 5 kg of sugar ?
(ii) 1.2 kg of sugar ?
Solution:
Let 5 kg of sugar contains = x crystals
and 1.2 kg of sugar contains = y crystals.
Sugar and crystals vary directly. Now, (i) $$\frac{2}{9 \times 10^{6}}$$ = $$\frac{5}{x}$$
⇒ 2 × x = 5 × 9 × 10
⇒ x = $$\frac{5 \times 9 \times 10 \times 10^{5}}{2}$$
⇒ x = 225 × 105
= 2.25 × 107
∴ 5 kg of sugar contains 2.25 × 107 crystals.

(ii) $$\frac{2}{9 \times 10^{6}}$$ = $$\frac{1.2}{y}$$
⇒ 2 × y = 1.2 × 9 × 106
⇒ y = $$\frac{1.2 \times 9 \times 10 \times 10^{5}}{2}$$
= 54 × 106
= 5.4 × 106
∴ 1.2 kg of sugar contains 5.4 × 106 crystals.

Question 8.
Rashmi has a road map with a scale of 1 cm representing 18 km. She drives on a road for 72 km. What would be her distance covered in the map ?
Solution:
Let the distance covered in the map = x.
Map with a scale and distance covered in the map vary directly. Now, $$\frac{1}{18}$$ = $$\frac{x}{72}$$
⇒ 18 × x = 72 × 1
⇒ x = $$\frac{72}{18}$$ = 4
Hence required distance covered in the map = 4 cm. Question 9.
A 5 m 60 cm high vertical pole casts a shadow 3 m 20 cm long. Find at the same time
(i) the length of the shadow cast by another pole 10 m 50 cm high,
(ii) the height of a pole which casts a shadow 5 m long.
Solution:
Let the length of shadow = x
and the height of a pole = y
Length of the shadow and height of pole vary directly. Now, (i) $$\frac{5.60}{3.20}$$ = $$\frac{10.50}{x}$$
⇒ 5.60 × x = 3.20 × 10.50
⇒ x = $$\frac{3.20 \times 10.50}{5.60}$$ = 6 m
Hence required length of shadow 6m.

(ii) $$\frac{5.60}{3.20}$$ = $$\frac{y}{5}$$
⇒ 3.20 × y = 5.60 × 5
⇒ y = $$\frac{5.60 \times 5}{3.20}$$ = 8.75
Hence required height of pole = 8.75 m or 8 m 75 cm.

Question 10.
A loaded truck travels 14 km in 25 minutes. If the speed remains the same, how far can it travel in 5 hours ?
Solution:
60 minutes = 1 hour
∴ 25 minutes = $$\frac{1}{60}$$ × 25 = $$\frac{5}{12}$$ hour
Let distance of travelling truck = x
Distance of travelling truck and time vary directly. Now, $$\frac{14}{5 / 12}$$ = $$\frac{x}{5}$$
⇒ $$\frac{5}{12}$$ × x = 14 × 5
⇒ x = $$\frac{14 \times 5}{5 / 12}$$ = $$\frac{14 \times 5 \times 12}{5}$$
⇒ x = 168 km
Hence distance of travelling truck = 168 km.
