Direction (Q. 6 - 10): For the two given equations (I) and (II), give answer

1) if x > y

2) if x > y

3) if x < y

4) if x < y

5) if x = y or no relation can be established between x and y.

6. I. 3x2 – 59x + 210 = 0

II. 2y2 – 17y + 36 = 0

7. I. 15x2 – 41x + 28 = 0

II. 7y2 – 29y + 30 = 0

8. I. 4x2 – x – 3 = 0

II. y2 + 4y + 4 = 0

9. I. x =

II. y =

10. I. x2 = - 14x

II. y2 + 18y + 80 = 0

1. 4; Series is -99, -89, -79, -69, -59.

2. 1; Series is x1 + 11, x2 + 21, x3 + 31, x4 + 41.

3. 2; Series is + 112, + 102, + 92, + 82,

4. 5; Series is x9 + 9, x8 + 8, x7 + 7, x6 + 6.

5. 1; Series is +91, +81, +71, +61.

6. 1; I. 3x2 – 59x + 210 = 0

3x2 – 45x – 14x + 210 = 0

3x(x - 15) – 14(x - 15) = 0

(3x - 14) (x - 15) = 0

X = 15,

II. 2y2 – 8y – 9y + 36 = 0

2y(y - 4) -9 (y - 4) = 0

(2y - 9) (y - 4) = 0

Y = 4,

∴ x > y

7. 3; I. 15x2 – 20x – 21x + 28 = 0

5x(3x - 4) – 7(3x - 4) = 0

(5x - 7) (3x - 4) = 0

X = ,

II. 7y2 – 14y – 15y + 30 = 0

7y (y - 2) – 15(y - 2) = 0

(7y - 15) (y - 2) = 0

Y = 2,

∴ x < y

8. 1; I. 4x2 – 4x + 3x – 3 = 0

4x(x - 1) + 3(x - 1) = 0

(4x + 3) (x - 1) = 0

X = 1,

II. y2 + 4y + 4 = 0

(y + 2)2 = 0

Y + 2 = 0 ∴ y = -2

∴ x > y

9. 5; I. x =

∴ x = + 73

II. y =

∴ y = 23

So relation cannot be established

10. 5; I. x2 + 14x = 0

X(x + 14) = 0

X = 0, -14

II. y2 + 10y + 8y + 80 = 0

Y(y + 10) + 8(y + 10) = 0

(y + 8) (y + 10) = 0

∴ y = -8, -10

Ie No. relation.
