QUESTION: 1

### Number of values `p' for which the equation (p2 – 3p + 2) x2 – (p2 – 5p + 4)x + p – p2 = 0 possess more than two roots, is

Solution:  QUESTION: 2

### The roots of the equation (b – c) x2 + (c – a) x + (a – b) = 0 are

Solution:

Clearly, x = 1 is a root of the given equation.
Let, alpha, beta are the roots ; alpha = 1
We know , product of the roots :-
Alpha * Beta = a-b / b-c
1* ( beta) = a-b / b- c
Beta = a-b/ b- c
Therefore, roots are :- ( a-b/b-c, 1)

QUESTION: 3

### If a, b are the roots of quadratic equation x2 + px + q = 0 and g, d are the roots of x2 + px – r = 0, then (a – g) . (a - d) is equal to

Solution:

x2+px+q=0 have roots a,b

a=b=-p  --(1)

ab = q  --(2)

a2+pa+q=0  --(3)

x2+px−r=0 have roots g,d

g+d=-p  --(4)

gd = -r  --(5)

(a-g)(a-d) = a2−(g−d)a+gd

= a2+pa−r = -q-r =-(q+r)  --from (3)

QUESTION: 4

Two real numbers a & b are such that a + b = 3 & |a - b| = 4, then a & b are the roots of the quadratic equation

Solution: QUESTION: 5

If a, b, c are integers and b2 = 4(ac + 5d2), d ∈ N, then roots of the equation ax2 + bx + c = 0 are

Solution:

b2 = 4(ac + 5d2)
D = b2 − 4ac
= 4(ac + 5d2) − 4ac
= 4ac + 20d2 − 4ac
= 20d2
Now, x = (−b ± √D)/2a
=(− b ± √20d2)/2a
=(− b ± 2√5d)/2a
Therefore, roots of the given quadratic equation are irrational.

QUESTION: 6

Let a, b and c are real numbers such that 4a + 2b + c = 0 and ab > 0. Then the equation ax2 + bx + c = 0 has

Solution:

Put  x=2  in  the  LHS  of  the  quadratic  equation
We  get,  4a  + 2b + c = 0
Hence  x=2  is  a  root  of  the  equation. (Real roots)

QUESTION: 7

Which of the following graph represents expression f(x) = ax2 + bx + c (a < 0) when a > 0, b < 0 & c < 0 ?

Solution: QUESTION: 8

The expression y = ax2 + bx + c has always the same sign as of `a' if

Solution:

For the quadratic curve to always have the same sign, it must never cut the X-axis, i    i.e. it must not have any real roots.
So, b2 – 4ac < 0
4ac > b2

QUESTION: 9

If a, b ∈ R, a < 0 and the quadratic equation ax2 – bx + 1 = 0 has imaginary roots then a + b + 1 is

Solution:

f(x) = ax2 - bx + c
f(0) = 1 (positive)
That is, f(x) = ax2 - bx + 1 = 0
Therefore f(x) has imaginary roots
f(-1) = a+b+c > 1 (Hence positive)

QUESTION: 10

If a and b are the non–zero distinct roots of x2 + ax + b = 0, then the least value of x2 + ax + b is

Solution:

Solution :- a and b of x^2 + ax + b = 0

Sum of roots : a + b = -a, 2a + b = 0

Product of roots : ab = b, b(a-1)

Minimum value of x^2 + ax + b at x =-a/2

We get a = -9/4

QUESTION: 11

If y = –2x2 – 6x + 9, then

Solution:

y = -2x2 - 6x + 9
dy/dx = -4x - 6
Put dy/dx = 0
-4x - 6 = 0
x = -3/2   = 1.5
d2y/dx2 = -4 < 0  (Maximum point)
Max value = -2(-1.5)2 - 6(-1.5) + 9
= 13.5
Max value of x = -1.5

QUESTION: 12

The number of the integer solutions of x2 + 9 < (x + 3)2 < 8x + 25 is

Solution: QUESTION: 13

If both roots of the quadratic equation (2 – x) (x + 1) = p are distinct & positive, then p must lie in the interval

Solution: QUESTION: 14

The equatiobn πx = –2x2 + 6x – 9 has

Solution:

The RHS of the expression has a<0 which means the graph will lie below the x-axis and πx lies above the x-axis.Therefore,no solution.

QUESTION: 15

Let a > 0, b > 0 and c > 0. Then both the roots of the equation ax2 + bx + c = 0

Solution: QUESTION: 16

The set of all solutions of the inequality < 1/4 contains the set

Solution:

(1/2)(x2 - 2x) < (1/4)
(1/2)(x2 - 2x) < (1/2)2
x2 − 2x > 2......(as after multiplicative inverse sign of inequality changes)
x2 − 2x − 2 > 0
x2  -  2x + 1 - 3  >
(x-1)2  - 3  > 0
(x-1)2  > 3
So for the above to hold good both the expression must be positive or both must be negative. After finding the solution the range of the solution will be
either x > 3
(3,¥)

QUESTION: 17

Consider y = , where x is real, then the range of expression y2 + y – 2 is

Solution: QUESTION: 18

The values of k, for which the equation x2 + 2(k – 1) x + k + 5 = 0 possess atleast one positive root, are

Solution: QUESTION: 19

If <= 4, then least and the highest values of 4x2 are

Solution: QUESTION: 20

If coefficients of the equation ax2 + bx + c = 0, a < 0 are real and roots of the equation are non–real complex and a + c + b < 0, then

Solution:

Puting x=-1
a-b+c
but
a+c<b or a+c-b<0
hence f(x)<0 for all real values of x
therefore
putting x=-2
we get f(X)=4a+c-2b<0
or 4a+c<2b

QUESTION: 21

If the roots of the equation x2 + 2ax + b = 0 are real and distinct and they differ by at most 2m, then b lies in the interval

Solution: QUESTION: 22

If the roots of the quadratic equation x2 + px + q = 0 are tan 30º and tan 15º respectively, then the value of 2 + q – p is

Solution:
QUESTION: 23

If (1 – p) is root of quadratic equation x2 + px + (1 – p) = 0, then its roots are

Solution:

As (1 – p) is root of the equation: x2 + px + (1 – p) = 0

(1 – p)2 + p(1 – p) + (1 – p) = 0

(1 – p)[1 – p + p + 1] = 0

(1 – p) = 0

p = 1

Therefore, given equation now becomes

x2 + x = 0

x(x + 1) = 0

x = 0, -1

QUESTION: 24

The values of x and y besides y can satisfy the equation (x, y ∈ real numbers) x2– xy + y2 – 4x – 4y + 16 = 0

Solution:
QUESTION: 25

For what value of a and b the equation x4 – 4x3 + ax2 + bx + 1 = 0 has four real positive roots ?

Solution:

Since all roots are positive,
coeff. of x shld be negatuve i.e., b is negative
let roots be m(>0), n(>0), p(>0), q(>0)
m+n+p+q = 4
mn+np+pq+mp+mq+nq = a
mnp+mnq+npq+mpq = -b
mnpq = 1
For the objective case,
put m=n=p=q =1
so a = 1+1+1+1+1+1 = 6
-b = 1+1+1+1 =4
so, a = 6 and b = -4

QUESTION: 26

If a, b are roots of the equation ax2 + bx + c = 0, then the value of a3 + b3 is

Solution:
QUESTION: 27

If z1 = 2 + i, z2 = 1 + 3i, then Re ( z1 - z2) =

Solution:

The numbers in the questions are not very clear.
z1 = 2 + i
z2 = 1+3i
z1 – z2 = (2 – 1) + i (1 – 3)
= 1 – 2i

QUESTION: 28

If a, b are roots of the equation ax2 + bx + c = 0 then the equation whose roots are 2a + 3b and 3a + 2b is

Solution:
QUESTION: 29

If S is the set of all real x such that is positive, then S contains

Solution: QUESTION: 30
