  • Last Updated : 20 Nov, 2020

Question 1: Draw the graphs for the following tables of values, with suitable scales on the axes.

(a) Cost of apples 

Number of apples12345
Cost (in ₹) 510152025

(b) Distance travelled by car

Time (in hours)6 a.m.7 a.m.8 a.m.9 a.m.
Distances (in km)4080120160

(i) How much distance did the car cover during the period 7.30 a.m. to 8 a.m.?

(ii) What was the time when the car had covered a distance of 100 km since it’s start?

(c) Interest on deposits for a year.



Deposit (in ₹)10002000300040005000
Simple Interest (in ₹) 80160240320400

(i) Does the graph pass through the origin?

(ii) Use the graph to find the interest on Rs 2500 for a year.

(iii) To get an interest of Rs. 280 per year, how much money should be deposited?

Solution:

(a) Represent the “Number of apples” as X-axis and “Cost in Rs” as Y-axis

(b) Represent the “Times (in hrs)” as X-axis and “Distance (in km)” as Y-axis



(i) The car covered 20 km distance during the period 7.30 a.m. to 8 a.m.

(ii) It was 7.30 am, when the car covered a distance of 100 km since it’s start.

(c) Represent the “Simple Interest (in Rs)” on x-axis and “Deposit (in Rs)” on y-axis.

(i) Yes, the graph passes through origin.

(ii) The interest on Rs. 2500 is Rs. 200 for a year.

(iii) Rs. 3500 should be deposited for interest of Rs. 280 per year.

Question 2: Draw a graph for the following

(i)

Side of the square(in cm)233.556
Perimeter(in cm)812142024

Is it linear graph?

(ii)

Side of the square(in cm)23456
Area(in cm2)49162536

Is it linear graph?

Solution:

(i) Represent the “Side of square(in cm)” on x-axis and “Perimeter(in cm)” on y-axis. 

Yes, the graph is a linear graph.

(ii) Represent the “Side of square(in cm)” on x-axis and “Area(in cm2)” on y-axis.  

No, the graph is not a linear graph because the graph does not provide a straight line.
