    Find the area of the right-angled triangle if the height is 11 units and the base is x units, given that the area of the triangle lies between 17 and 42 sq. units

    The height of the right-angled triangle is 11 units.
    The base of the right-angled triangle is x units.
    The area lies between the 17sq. units and 42sq. units. So, this question is of inequality. We have to write the mathematical form of this inequality.
    The area of a right-angled triangle is given as follows:
    Area = 1 half cross times 11 cross times x
    equals fraction numerator 11 x over denominator 2 end fraction
    Now, we will see the limits.
    The area lies between 17sq. units and 42sq. units.
    It means the area should be greater than 17sq. units and less than 42sq. units.
    So, we can write
    17 < Area < 42
    17 less than fraction numerator 11 x over denominator 2 end fraction less than 42
    Tbis is the given inequality.

    What is the solution of 0.2 x -4 - 2x < - 0.4 and 3x + 2.7 <3 ?

    The given inequalities are as follows:
    0.2x – 4 – 2x < -0.4 and 3x + 2.7 < 3
    The word used to join them is “and”. So, we have to find the values of x satisfying both the statements.
    When the word “and” is used, the values of the variables simultaneously satisfy both the inequalities.
    When the word “or” is used, the values of the variables satisfy either of the inequalities.
    We will solve the inequalities one by one.
    0.2x – 4 – 2x < -0.4
    We will take the variables together and solve them first.
    0.2x – 2x – 4 < - 0.4
    - 1.8x – 4 < - 0.4
    We will isolate the variable by adding 4 to both the sides.
    -1.8x – 4 + 4 < -0.4 + 4
    - 1.8x < 3.6
    Now, we will divide both the sides by -1.8. As we are dividing by a negative number, the inequality will flip.
    fraction numerator negative 1.8 x over denominator negative 1.8 end fraction greater than fraction numerator 3.6 over denominator negative 1.8 end fraction
    x  >  -2
    3x + 2.7 < 3
    We will isolate the variable by subtracting 2.7 from both the sides.
    3x + 2.7 – 2.7 < 3 – 2.7
    3x < 0.3
    Dividing both the sides by 3 we get,
    x < 0.1
    Now, the values satisfying the two inequalities are given as follows:
    x > -2
    x < 0.1
    We can combine the solution and write the intersection of the solution as follow:
    -2 < x < 0.1
    So, the solution is -2 < x < 0.1.
