Or, 15x2 – 18x + 3 = 0, Or, 15x2 – 15x – 3x + 3 = 0
Or, 15x(x – 1) – 3(x – 1) = 0, Or, (x – 1)  (15x – 3) = 0
So,  x – 1 = 0, Or,  15x – 3 = 0
$\displaystyle So,\text{ }either\text{ }x=1~~\text{ }Or\text{ }\left( {15x} \right)\frac{2}{3}=18,~\text{ }15x=3,\text{ },\text{ }i.e\text{ }~x=\frac{3}{{15}}=\frac{1}{5}$
$\displaystyle So,\text{ }either\text{ }x=1,\text{ }or\text{ }~x=\frac{1}{5}~,$
So, option (d) is correct

3.If (x 7)1/2  + (x 3)1/2 = 2, what is the value of x ?

(a)    81

(b)    49

(c)    36

(d)    9

(x -7)1/2 + (x -3)1/2 = 2. Or 2x1/2-10=2. 2x1/2=12, or x1/2 = 6 or x=36. So, option (c) is correct

4. What is the sum of the roots of the equation 2x2 11x + 5 = 0?

$\displaystyle (a)\frac{{11}}{2}$
$\displaystyle (b)-\frac{{11}}{2}$
$\displaystyle (c)\frac{5}{{11}}$
$\displaystyle (d)15$

We know, For Quadratic Equation of Form : ax2+bx + c = 0, sum of the roots= –

Considering the equation 2x2 – 11x + 5 = 0, in form of ax2+bx + c = 0, we find  a = 2, b = – 11, c = 5

$\displaystyle So,\text{ }sum\text{ }of\text{ }the\text{ }roots=~\frac{{-b}}{a}=\frac{{-(-11)}}{2}=\frac{{11}}{2}.$

5. If the roots of the equation px2 + qx + 3 = 0 are reciprocal to each other, then find value of p

(a)    q = 3

(b)    p = 3

(c)    p = 5

(d)    q = 6

We know, in equation of the form: ax2 – bx + c = 0,  if one root is reciprocal of other,  then   c = a

In equation, px2 + qx + 3 = 0, a = p, c = 3,  So, p = 3 . So, option (b) is correct

6. The roots of the equation x2 + 6x 5 = 0 are

(a)    Real and equal

(b)    Imaginary

(c)    Real and unequal

(d)    None of these.

In equation  of the form: ax2 – bx + c = 0, we may get the nature of roots by examining the value of

b2 – 4ac. In x2 + 6x – 5 = 0,  a = 1, b = 6, c = – 5 .

So, b2 – 4ac = (6)2 – 4 .X1 X (- 5),  or, b2 – 4ac = 36 – (- 20), or, b2 – 4ac = 36 + 20, b2 – 4ac = 56

This value is greater than zero.  So, roots are Real & unequal. So, option (c) is correct

7. The sum of the squares of three numbers is 725. If the ratio in the numbers be 2 : 3 : 4, what are the numbers ?

(a)    25, 10, 15

(b)    12, 3, 4

(c)    14, 6, 8

(d)    10, 15, 20

Let numbers be 2x, 3x, 4x, So, (2x)2 + (3x)2 + (4x)2 = 725, Or, 4x2 + 9x2 + 16x2 = 725, Or, 29x2 = 725
$\displaystyle Or,\text{ }{{x}^{2}}=\frac{{725}}{{29}}=25.\text{ }So,\text{ }x=\pm 5.$
So, number be 2 x 5 = 10, 3 x 5 = 15, 4 x 5 = 20. So, numbers are 10, 15, 20.

(Note : the numbers may also be 2 x -5 = -10, 3 x -5 = -15, 4 x -5 = -20, or -10, -15,- 20). So, option (d) is correct.

8. Sum of the squares of two numbers is 100. If the ratio in the numbers be 3 : 4, what is their sum ?

(a)    8

(b)    15

(c)    14

(d)    18.

Let numbers  be 3x and 4x . So, (3x)2 + (4x)2 = 100, Or, 9x2 + 16x2 = 100, Or, 25x2 = 100, Or, x2 = 4

Or, x ± 2, assuming  x = 2 , One number = 3x=3 x 2 = 6. The other number = 4x= 4 x 2 = 8

So, Sum of the numbers = 6 + 8 = 14.

If we consider x=-2, One number = 3x=3 x (-2) = – 6. The other number = 4x= 4 x -2 = -8. The sum is -6 + (-8) = -14. So, So, Sum of the numbers = 14 is the correct answer. So, option (c) is correct.

9. If the sum of two positive numbers is 5 and the sum of their squares is 17, what is the product of the numbers ?

(a)    20

(b)    18

(c)    4

(d)    10

Let one number x, so, other number is 5 – x, So, x2 + (5 – x)2 = 17, Or, x2 + (25 – 10x + x2 )= 17

Or, 2x2 – 10x +  8 = 0, Or, 2x2 – 2x – 8x +  8 = 0, Or, 2x(x – 1) – 8 (x – 1) = 0, Or, (x – 1) (2x – 8) = 0

2x – 8 = 0, or x -1 = 0,

When 2x – 8 = 0,  2x = 8, Or, x = 4, the Other number is (5 – 1) = 4, The numbers are 4,1. Product of the numbers is (4 x 1) = 4

When x – 1 = 0,  x = 1, The Other number is (5 – 1) = 4, The numbers are 1,4. Product of the numbers is (4 x 1) = 4. So, option (c) is correct.

10. The difference between the ages of two men is 10 years. 15 years ago, the age of the older was twice the age of younger. What are their present ages ?

(a)    20,15

(b)    35,40

(c)    25,35

(d)    45,25

Let one man’s present age is x, then,  Other man’s age is x + 10, 15 years ago, Age of the two men was x-15, & (x+10)-15 = x-5. So, x-5=2 X (x-15), Or, x – 5  = 2x – 30, Or, – 5 + 30 = 2x – x = x

Or, x = 25, So, present age of 1st man is 25 years, and present age of 2nd man is 25+10=35 years,

So, the present age of the present are 25, 35.  So, option (c) is correct.

11. The solution of the two simultaneous equations 2x + y = 8 and 3y = 4 + 4x is

(a)    x = 4, y = 2

(b)    x = 1, y = 2

(c)    x = 2, y = 4

(d)    x = 3, y = 8

2x + y = 8 .. eq. (1), 3y = 4 + 4x, eq. (2), Multiplying eq. (1) by 2, we get 4x + 2y = 16 .. eq (3)

Deducting Eq (2) from Eq (3), we get 5y=20, or y=4. Putting the value of y in eq. 1, we get 2x+4=8,

Or 2x=4, pr x=2. So, the solution is x=2, y=4. So, option (c) is correct.

$\displaystyle 12.\mathbf{If}~\frac{2}{x}+\frac{3}{y}=\text{ }\mathbf{2},\text{ }\mathbf{and}~\frac{6}{x}+\frac{{18}}{y}=\text{ }\mathbf{9},\text{ }\mathbf{find}\text{ }\mathbf{the}\text{ }\mathbf{value}\text{ }\mathbf{of}\text{ }\mathbf{x}\text{ }\And \text{ }\mathbf{y}$

(a)    3 and 5

$\displaystyle Multiplying\text{ }Eq\text{ }\left( 1 \right)\text{ }by\text{ }3,\text{ }we\text{ }get,~\frac{6}{x}+\frac{9}{y}=\text{ }6,\text{ }eq\text{ }..\text{ }3.$
$\displaystyle Deducting\text{ }eq\text{ }\left( 2 \right)\text{ }from\text{ }eq\text{ }\left( 3 \right),\text{ }we\text{ }get,-~\frac{9}{y}=-3,\text{ }or-3y=-9,\text{ }or~y=3,~$
$\displaystyle Putting\text{ }value\text{ }of\text{ }y\text{ }in\text{ }eq\text{ }1,\text{ }we\text{ }get~\frac{2}{x}+\frac{3}{y}~=2,\text{ }or,~\frac{2}{x}+1=2$
$\displaystyle Or,~\frac{2}{x}=1,or\text{ }x=2,\text{ }So,\text{ }x=2,\text{ }y=3,$
So, option (b) is correct.

(a)    12

(b)    10

(c)    18

(d)    28

(b)    x2 + 8x + 25 = 0

(c)    2x2 + 8x – 15 = 0

(d)    3x2 – 8x – 25 = 0.

Standard form of quadratic equation is : x2 – (sum of roots)x + product of roots = 0.

Here the roots are 3 & 5. So, Hence, x2 – (3 + 5)x + (3 x 5) = 0, Or, x2 – 8x + 15 = 0.

So, option (a) is correct.

$\displaystyle ~\begin{array}{*{20}{l}} {16.\mathbf{If}\alpha ,\beta \mathbf{are}\text{ }\mathbf{the}\text{ }\mathbf{roots}\text{ }\mathbf{of}\text{ }{{\mathbf{x}}^{\mathbf{2}}}-\mathbf{px}+\mathbf{q}\text{ }=\text{ }\mathbf{0},} \ {\mathbf{Find}\text{ }\mathbf{value}\text{ }\mathbf{of}~{{\alpha }^{\mathbf{2}}}+{{\beta }^{\mathbf{2}}}} \end{array}$

(b)    3x2 – 5x – 6 = 0

(c)    x2 + 5x – 6 = 0

(d)    x2 – 5x + 6 = 0

Comparing the equation x2 – 3x + 2 = 0,  with general form, ax2 + bx + c = 0,  we get, a=1, b= – 3, c=2.
$\displaystyle So,\alpha +\beta =-\frac{b}{a}=-\frac{{-3}}{1}=3,\alpha \beta =\frac{c}{a}=\frac{2}{1}=2$
$\displaystyle So,\text{ }sum\text{ }of\text{ }the\text{ }roots\text{ }of\text{ }the\text{ }equation:\left( {\alpha +1} \right)+\left( {\beta +1} \right)=\left( {\alpha +\beta } \right)+2=3+2=5$

(b)    12x2 – 6x + 5 = 0

(c)    12x2 – 5x + 6 = 0

(d)    3x2 – 5x + 6 = 0

Here, a + b = – $\frac{{-5}}{1}$ = 5. ab = $\frac{6}{1}$=6.

We know, (a – b)2 = (a + b)2 – 4ab = (5)2 – (4 X 6) = 25 – 24 = 1, or, a – b = (1)1/2 =1

The required equation with roots (a + b) and (a – b) is

x2 – (sum of roots)x + product of roots = 0

Or, x2 – (a + b + a – b)x + (a + b) (a – b) = 0

We know, (a – b)2 = (a + b)2 – 4ab = (5)2 – (4 X 6) = 25 – 24 = 1, or, a – b = (1)1/2 =1

The required equation with roots (ab+ a + b) and (ab- a – b) is

Here, Sum of Roots = (ab + a + b) + (ab – a – b) = (6 + 5) + {(6 – a + b)} = 11 + (6 – 5)  = 11 + 1 = 12

and, Product of roots =  {ab + (a + b)} X {ab – (a + b)} = (6 + 5) X (6 – 5) = 11 X1 = 11

So, x-y=±3.

When x-y= 3, (x+y) + (x-y) = 5+3=8. So, 2x=8, or x=4. So, y=5-4=1. So, the roots are 4,1.

When x-y=- 3, (x+y) + (x-y) = 5-3=2, 2x=2, or x=1. So, y=5-1=4. So, the roots are 1,4.

(a)    4/13

(b)    1/15

(c)    1/17

(d)    6/26

()1/2 + (  )1/2 =  . or, {x+(1-x)}/{x1/2(1-x)1/2}= or, 1/({x1/2(1-x)1/2}=,

Squaring both sides, we get   = . Or, 1/(x-x2)= . Or, 169x – 169x2 = 36

Or, 169x – 169x2 – 36 = 0, Or, 169x2 – 169x + 36 = 0, Or, 169x2 – 117x – 52x + 36 = 0

Or, 13x (13x – 9) – 4 (13x – 9) = 0, Or, (13x – 9) (13x – 4) = 0.

So, 13x-9=0, or x=9/13. Or, 13x-4=0, or x=4/13. So, option (a) is correct

27. Find the positive value of k for which the equations x2+kx+64 = 0 and x2 – 8x + k = 0 will have real equal roots.

(a)    15

(b)    16

(c)    17

(d)    21

For equation ax2 + bx + c = 0, If roots are real and equal then b2 = 4ac.

So, For equation x2 + kx + 64 = 0, (k) 2 = 4 X 1 X 64, k2= (16)2. So, k=±16

For equation x2 – 8x + k = 0, (-8)2= 4 X 1X k, or 64=4k, or k=16. So, for positive value of k, k=16 is the answer. So, option (b) is correct.

Let number of 5 rupees note he get be x and number of 10 rupees note he gets is y

So, x + y = 175. .Eq (1), and 5x + 10y = 1000  Eq (2).

Multiply equation (1) by 5, we get 5x + 5y = 875 .. Eq (3). Subtracting Eq (2) from Eq (3),

we get, -5y=-125, or y= –    =25, x= 175-25=150. So, he got 150 notes of Rs 5 and 25 notes of Rs 10.

We may cross check, (150+5) + 25×10 = Rs 750+250=1000, and 150+28=175 notes. So, option (d) is correct.

Practical Applications of Equations in Co-ordinate Geometry

30. The equation of a line  which is perpendicular  to 5x – 2y = 7 and passes through the mid-point of the line joining (2, 7) and (– 4, 1) is

We know, Midpoint (x.y) of the line joining the points (x1,y1) & (x2, y2) is  (x1 + x2)/2, (y1 + y2)/2, So, the co-ordinate of midpoint of line joining (2, 7) and (– 4, 1) is

31.The area of a triangle with vertices (1,3), (5,6) and (– 3, 4) in terms of square units is:

(a)    14

(b)    3

(c)    18

(d)    16

Area of a triangle passing through points, (x1 y1) (x2 y2) (x3 y3) is x1 (y2 – y3) + x2(y3 – y1) + x3(y1 – y2)

= 1 (6 – 4) + 5 (4 – 3) + (– 3) (3 – 6) = 2 + 5 + 9 = 16. So, option (d) is correct.

32.The centroid of the triangle ABC is at the point (2, 3). A and B are the points (5, 6) and (– 1, 4) respectively. The coordinates of C are:

& . Here, x1=5, y1=6, x2=-1, y2=4.

So,  = 2, or 4+x3=6, x3= 6-4=2. and =3, or 10+y3=9, or y3=9-10=-1

So, the Co-ordinate of c is (2, –1). So, option (b) is correct.

33. If area and perimeter of a rectangle is 6000 cm2 and 340 cm respectively, then the length of rectangle is:

(a)    110

(b)    120

(c)    125

(d)    210

Let length = x, Width = y. So, xy = 6000, or 2 (x + y) = 340, Or, x + y = 170, Or, x = (170 – y)

So  y X (170 – y) = 6000, Or, 170y – y2 = 6000, Or, y2 – 170y + 6000 = 0, Or, y2 – 120y – 50y + 6000 = 0

Or, (y – 120) (y – 50) = 0, either  y = 120, or y=50.

If y = 120, x = (170 – 120) = 50, As length is higher than width, length will be 120 cm. So, option (b) is correct.
