QUESTION: 26

If x3 - 6x2 + 11x - 6 = 0 then find the value of (3x-4).

Solution:

Let p(x) = x3 - 6x2 + 11x - 6
By trial, we find that
p(1) = (1)3 - 6(1)2 + 11(1) - 6 = 0
∴ By converse of factor theorem, (x - 1) is a factor of p(x).
Now, x3 - 6x2 + 11x - 6
= x2 (x - 1)- 5x (x - 1) + 6 (x - 1)
= (x - 1) (x2 - 5x + 6)
= (x - 1) {x2 - 2x - 3x + 6}
= (x - 1) {x(x - 2)-3 (x - 2)}
= (x - 1)(x - 2)(x - 3)

When x=1, 3x-4 = -1
When x=2, 3x--4 = 2
when x=3, 3x-4 = 5

QUESTION: 27

A man rowing at the rate of 5km in an hour in still water takes thrice as much time in going 40km up the river as in going 40km down. Find the rate at which the river flows:

Solution:

Speed of the boat in water =.5 km/hr
Let the speed of the stream be x km/hr
So, the speed of the boat upstream will be (5-x) km / hr
So, the speed of the boat downstream is (5+x) k/hr
Time given to cover 40 km upstream = 3(time taken to cover dowmstream)
⇒40/ (5-x) km/hr = 3(5+x)
⇒1/(5-x)=3(5+x)
⇒5+x=15-3x
⇒x+3x=15-5
⇒4x=10
⇒X=10/4
⇒X=5/2
∴x=2.5 km/hr

QUESTION: 35

The solution of the equation (p+2) (p+3) + (p+3) (P-4) = p(2p-5) is

Solution:

(p+2)(p-3)+(p+3)(p-4)=p(2p-5)
p²-3p+2p-6+p²-4p+3p-12=2p²-5p
2p²-2p-18=2p²-5p
-2p+5p=18
3p=18
p=6
