**Q) Solve the following system of linear equations graphically: **

**x + 2 y = 3, 2 x – 3 y + 8 = 0**

**Ans: **

**Step 1:** To plot the equations, let’s first find out the coordinates of points lying on these lines:

For line: x + 2 y = 3,, we calculate coordinates of various points:

at X = 0, 0 + 2 y = 3 ∴ y =

at X = 1, 1 + 2 y = 3 ∴ y = 1

at X = 2, 2 + 2 y = 3 ∴ y =

at X = 3, 3 + 2 y = 3 ∴ y = 0

Hence, we get the following table:

Similarly for line: 2 x – 3 y + 8 = 0, we calculate coordinates of various points:

at X = 0, 2 (0) – 3 y + 8 = 0 ∴ y =

at X = 1, 2 (1) – 3 y + 8 = 0 ∴ y =

at Y = 0, 2 x – 3 (0) + 8 = 0 ∴ x = – 4

at Y = 1, 2 x – 3 (1) + 8 = 0 ∴ x =

Hence, we get the following table:

**Step 2**: Now let’s plot both of these lines connecting each of the points:

From the diagram, we can see that the lines intersect each other at point (-1, 2)

**Therefore, the solution of the lines is (- 1, 2).**

**Check:** at (-1, 2), LHS value of (x + 2y = 3) is – 1 + 2 (2) = 3 = RHS

*at (-1, 2), LHS value of (2 x – 3 y + 8 = 0) is 2 (- 1) – 3 (2) + 8 = – 2 – 6 + 8 = 0 = RHS*

*Since RHS values are same as LHS for both equations at (-1, 2), hence our answer is correct.*
