Squaring on both sides

Now multiplying both sides by x

x2 – 2x + 1 = 0
x2 – x – x +1 = 0
x(x – 1) –1(x – 1)
(x –1)2 = 0
x = 1
So

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 3 - Question 17

The term that should be added to (4x2 + 8x) so that resulting expression be a perfect square is:       (SSC Sub. Ins. 2015)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 3 - Question 17

4x2 + 8x = (2x)2 + 2(2x) (2) + (2)2

If  and x + y + z ≠ 0, then each ratio is        (SSC CHSL 2014)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 3 - Question 21

Given,

We know that property of ratio,

So,

= (x + y + z)/(xa + xb + xc + ya + yb + yc + za + zb + zc)
⇒ x / (xa + yb + zc) = y / (ya + zb + xc) = z / (za + xb + yc)
= x / (xa + yb + zc) = y (ya + zb + xc) = z / (za + xb + yc)
= (x + y + z) / {x(a + b + c) + y(a + b + c) + z(a + b + c)}
⇒ x(xa + yb + zc) = y(ya + zb + xc) = z(za + xb + yc)
= (x + y + z) / {(a + b + c) (x + y + z)
⇒ x / (xa + yb + zc) = y / (ya + zb + xc) = z / (za + xb + yc)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 3 - Question 35

a2 – 4a – 1 = 0
a2 – 4a = 1
a (a – 4) = 1
a – 4 = (1/a)
a - (1/a) = 4 ...(1)
We have

42 + 3 × 4 + 2 = 30

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 3 - Question 36

If a + b + c = 3, a+ b2 + c2 = 6 and  where a, b, c are all non-zero, then 'abc' is equal to      (SSC CGL 2014)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 3 - Question 36

a + b + c = 3
