## Text Solution

#### Steps:

• Let the cost of one notebook be $$₹\, x$$
• Let the cost of one pen be $$₹\, y$$

Given: Cost of notebook is twice the cost of pen.

Therefore, we can write the required linear equation in two variables considering the given information as,

Cost of notebook $$= 2 \times$$ Cost of pen

$$\Rightarrow x = 2 y$$

Since any linear equation of two variables is expressed as:

$$a x + b y + c = 0,$$

$$\therefore \,x - 2 y = 0$$ is the required linear equation in two variables which represents the given information.
