Question 28.

Find quadratic equation such that its roots are square of sum of the roots and square of difference of the roots of equation

2x2 + 2(p + q)x + p2 + q2 = 0

Answer:

Let’s assume roots are m and n.

So, we want the equation whose roots would be

So, the sum of the roots of our desired equation would be and product of the roots would be

What we know from given equation are:

and

the sum and product are:

and

Our desired equation would be

So, x2 - 4pqx - (p2 - q2)2 = 0 is our desired equation

Question 29.

Mukund possesses ₹50 more than what Sagar possesses. The product of the amount they have is 15,000. Find the amount each one has.

Answer:

Let Sagar has x amount

Mukund’s amount =

⇒

Splitting the middle term we get:-

⇒ x2 - 100x + 150x - 15000 = 0

⇒ x(x - 100) + 150(x - 100)

⇒ (x - 100)(x+150)

∴ x = (-150) , 100

x = 100 as money cant be negative therefore we ignore (-150)

∴ Sagar has 100Rs and Mukund has 150Rs

Question 33.

A tank fills completely in 2 hours if both the taps are open. If only one of the taps is open at the given time, the smaller tap takes 3 hours more than the larger one to fill the tank. How much time does each tap take to fill the tank completely?

Answer:

Let the time taken by larger tap alone be x hr. Then ,

Time taken by smaller tap be x + 3 hr

In an hour, the larger tap can fill tank.

∴ In an hour, the larger tap can fill tank.

Two taps together can fill a tank in 2 hr.
