Direction (Q. 6 - 10): In each of these questions, two equations numbered I and II are given. You have to solve both the equations and find out the values of x and y and given answer.

1) If x > y

2) if x > y

3) if x < y

4) if x < y

5) if x = y or if there is no relation between x and y.

6. I. 4x2 – x – 5 = 0

II. 6y2 – 13y + 6 = 0

7. I. 7x + 13y = 9

II. 3x – 4y = 23

8. I. x =

II. y =

9. I. x2 + 14x + 49 = 0

II. 6y2 + 61y + 153 = 0

10. I. x2 + 11x + 30 = 0

II. 2y2 + y – 1 = 0

1. 2; 3 + 32, 5 + 52, 7 + 72

2. 1; 92 + 10, (19)2 + 20, (29)2 + 30

3. 5; 100 x 1.1, 200 x 2.2, 300 x 3.3, 400 x 4.4

4. 2; +12 – 02, +32 – 22, +52 + 42, +72 - 62

5. 5; x 3 + 1, x3 + 3, x 3 + 5, x 3 + 7 ……..

6. 5; I. 4x2 – x – 5

4x2 + 4x – 5x – 5 = 0

4x(x + 1) – 5 (x + 1) = 0

(4x - 5) (x + 1) = 0

X = -1,

II. 6y2 – 9y – 4y + 6 = 0

3y(2y - 3) – 2 (2y - 3) = 0

(2y - 3) (3y - 2) = 0

y = ,

ie no relation exists between x and y.

7. 1; Multiplying eqn I by 3 and eqn II by 7 and adding both the equations:

∴ y = -2 and x = 5 ∴ x > y

8. 1; I. x = ∴ x = 43

II. y = ∴ y = + 27 ∴ x > y

9. 3; I. x2 + 14x + 49 = 0

(x + 7)2 = 0

X + 7 = 0 ∴ x = -7

II. 6y2 + 61y + 153 = 0

6y2 + 27y + 34y + 153 = 0

3y(2y + 9) + 17(2y + 9) = 0

(3y + 17) (2y + 9) = 0

Y = , = -5.66, - 4.5

10. 3; I. x2 + 6x + 5x + 30 = 0

X(x + 6)+ 5(x + 6) = 0

(x + 5) (x + 6) = 0

X = -5, -6

II. 2y2 + 2y – y – 1 = 0

2y(y + 1) – 1 (y + 1) = 0

(2y - 1) (y + 1) = 0

Y = , -1

∴ x < y
