Question 1:

Aftab tells his daughter, “Seven years ago, I was seven times as old as you were then. Also, three years from now, I shall be three times as old as you will be.” (isn՚t this interesting?) Represent this situation algebraically and graphically.

Let the present age of Aftab and his daughter be x and y respectively. Seven years ago, Age of Aftab and Age of his daughter According to the given condition,

Again, Three years hence, Age of Aftab and Age of his daughter According to the given condition,

Thus, the given conditions can be algebraically represented as:

Three solutions of this equation can be written in a table as follows:

 x y

And

Three solutions of this equation can be written in a table as follows:

 x y

The graphical representation is as follows:
