Question

A three wheeler scooter charges Rs 15 for first kilometer and Rs 8 each for every subsequent kilometer . For a distance of x km, an amount of Rs y is paid. Choose the correct linear equation representing the above information.

Y = 8x + 7

Y = 7x + 8

Y = 15x + 8

Y = 8x + 15

1. ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

### ✒ GiveN:

A scooter charges some amount for travelling

• Rs. 15 for first kilometer.
• Rs.8 for subsequent kilometer
• Considered kilometers = x
• Considered amount = y

### ✒ To FinD:

• What can be the linear equation for this situation ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

## ✤ ExplanationandSolution:

We are provided with some basic informations from which we have to frame the linear equation in two variables.

➙ Distance travelled given = x

• Then, first kilometer = 1
• Subsequent kilometers = x – 1

➙ Then, Total amount paid = Amount for first kilometer + Amount for subsequent kilometers

• Amount for first kilometer = Rs. 15
• Amount paid for subsequent kms = Rs.8/km
• So, Total for subsequent kms = 8(x 1)
• Total amount paid = Y

So, our equation would be,

➝ Y = 15 + 8(x – 1)

➝ Y = 15 + 8x – 8

Y = 8x + 7

So, The correct option is (A)

━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

2. Correct Answer is ⇒ Y = 8x + 7
