SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 5 - Question 5

Let  Then point out the correct alternative among the four alternatives given below.           (SSC CHSL 2013)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 5 - Question 5

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 5 - Question 6

If a2 + b2 + c2 = 2 (a – b – c) – 3, then the value of 2a – 3b + 4c is       (SSC CHSL 2013)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 5 - Question 6

a2 +b2 + c2 = 2(a -b - c) - 3
⇒ a2 + b2 + c2 - 2(a -b - c) + 3 = 0
⇒ a2 + b2 + c2 - 2a + 2b + 2c + 3 = 0
⇒ (a2 +1- 2a) + (b2 +1+ 2b) + (c2 +1+ 2c) = 0
⇒ (a -1)2 + (b +1)2 + (c +1)2 = 0
This is possible when (a -1)2 = 0,(b +1)2 = 0 and (c +1)2 = 0.
⇒ a = 1, b = –1, c = –1
Thus, 2a – 3b + 4c = 2(1) – 3(–1) + 4(–1)
= 2 + 3 – 4 = 1.

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 5 - Question 7

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 5 - Question 7

= a3 + b3 + 3a2b + 3b2 – (a3 – b3 – 3a2b + 3b2a)
= a3 + b3 + 3a2b + 3b2 – a3 + b3 + 3a2b – 3b2a

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 5 - Question 8

If the difference of two numbers is 3 and the difference of their squares is 39; then the larger number is :       (SSC CHSL 2012)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 5 - Question 8

Let the numbers are x, y.
x – y = 3 … (1)
x2 – y2 = 39
⇒ (x – y) (x + y) = 39
⇒ x + y = 13 … (2)
x + y + x – y = 16
⇒ x = 8
∴ y = 5
Hence, 8 is the larger number.

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 5 - Question 9

If  then the value of x is :        (SSC CHSL 2012)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 5 - Question 9

⇒ 9x + 15 = 10x – 4
⇒ 15 + 4 = 10x – 9x
⇒ x = 19

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 5 - Question 10

If  then :        (SSC CHSL 2012)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 5 - Question 10

So, x = k (b + c)
⇒ x – y = k (b + c) – k (c + a)
= k (b – a)
y = k (c + a)
⇒ y – z = k (c + a) – k (a + b)= k (c – b)
z = k (a + b) = z – x = k (a + b) – k (b + c) = k (a – c)
So,check option (a)

k = k = k
option (a) is true.

SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 5 - Question 15

If a + b = 5, a2 + b2 = 13, the value of a – b (where a > b) is        (SSC Sub. Ins. 2012)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 5 - Question 15

a + b = 5
Squaring on both sides
(a + b)2 = (5)2
a2 + b2 + 2ab = 25
13 + 2ab = 25
2ab = 25 – 13 = 12 ... (1)
Again, a2 + b2 = 13
Subtracting (– 2ab) from both sides
a2 + b2 – 2ab = 13 – 2ab
(a – b)2 = 13 – 12 from equation (1)
(a – b)2 = 1
TRICK Þ a = 3
b = 2 (a > b)
a – b = 1

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 5 - Question 23

We have x3 + y3 + z3 – 3xyz = (x + y + z)
(x2 + y2 + z2–xy – yz - zx)
Here x = a – 4, y = b – 3, z = c –1
So, given expression is (x + y + z)
(x2 + y2 + z2 – xy – yz – zx)
= (a – 4 + b – 3 + c – 1) (x2 + y2 + z2 – xy – yz – zx)

The area of the triangle formed by the lines 5x + 7y = 35, 4x + 3y = 12 and x-axis is        (SSC CGL 1st Sit. 2012)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 5 - Question 27

5x + 7y = 35 ...(i)
4x + 3y = 12 ...(ii)
By equation (i) × 4 – (ii) × 5

⇒ y = 80/13 = Height of triangle
Point of intersection on x-axis of equation
5x + 7y = 35
⇒ 5x + 7 × 0 = 35
⇒ 5x = 35
⇒ x = 7
∴ (7, 0)
Similarly, point of intersection of
4x + 3y = 12 = (3, 0)

If a2 + b2 + c2 = 2(a – b – c) – 3 then the value of 2a – 3b + 4c is        (SSC CGL  1st Sit. 2012)

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL Previous Year Questions: Algebra- 5 - Question 30

a2 + b2 + c2 = 2(a – b –c) –3
⇒ a2 + b2 + c2 – 2a + 2b + 2c + 3 = 0
⇒ a2 – 2a + 1 + b2 + 2b + 1 + c2 + 2c + 1 = 0
⇒ (a –1)2 + (b + 1)2 + (c + 1)2 = 0
[If x2 + y2 + z2 = 0 ⇒ x = 0; y = 0; z =0]
∴ a – 1 = 0 ⇒ a = 1
b + 1 = 0 ⇒ b = – 1
c + 1 = 0 ⇒ c = – 1
