A grocer buys 10 eggs for Rs.8,set up a linear equation with x representing the number of eggs and y representing the total cost in Rs. By reading the graph find :

1.The cost of 15 eggs

2.number of eggs for Rs.16

**Given:** *x* represents the number of eggs and *y* represents the total cost of eggs.

Grocer purchase 10 eggs for Rs 8

∴ Cost price of 1 egg =

Hence, total cost of eggs = Number of eggs × Cost price of 1 egg

⇒ 10*y* – 8*x* = 0

⇒ 5*y* – 4*x* = 0

x | 5 | 2.5 | 0 |

y | 4 | 2 | 0 |

Using graph

(i) Cost of 15 eggs corresponds to 12 Rs.

(ii) Number of eggs for Rs. 16 correspond to 20 eggs.

Cheers!
