Q1. If two of the roots of f(x) = x3 – 5x2 – 16x + 80 are equal in magnitude but opposite in sign, then find all of its zeroes.

Hint: Let α and β are the two zeroes which are equal in magnitude but opposite in sign.
∴ α + β = 0
(Let the third zero is γ)
Sum of zeroes of
f(x)= α + β + γ  = ∴ γ = 5  [α + β = 0]
Product of zeroes  ⇒ – α2 = –16  [α + β = 0 ⇒ β = – α]
⇒ α2 = 16   ⇒  α = ± 4
α = ± 4 ⇒ β = ∓ 4
[∴ β = –α]
Thus, the zeroes are : [± 4, ∓ 4, and 5]

Q2. Hint: Adding (1) and (2), we get x = 1/3 and y = 1/2

Q3. Solve :  Hint: Put x + 2y = p and 2x – y = q
We have ...(1) ...(2)
Solving (1) and (2), we get p = 4 and q = 3
∴ x + 2y = 4  and 2x – y = 3
Solving these equations, we get x = 2 and y = 1

Q4. Solve : x + y = 18 ; y + z  = 12 ;  z + x = 16.
Hint: Adding the three equations, we get ⇒ x + y + z  = 23
Now, (x + y + z = 23) – (x + y = 18)
⇒ z = 5 (x + y + z = 23) – (y + z = 12)
⇒ x = 11 (x + y + z = 23) – (z + x = 16)
⇒ y = 7
Thus, x = 11, y = 7 and z = 5

Q5. Solve : Hint: Inverting the equations: Adding (1), (2) and (3), we get  Now, subtracting (1), (2) and (3) turn by turn from (4), we get x = 2, y = 4 and z = 6

Q6. Solve: Hint:
From ⇒ 11(x + y – 3) = 2(3x + y) ⇒ 5x + 9y = 33    ...(1)
From ⇒ 11(x + 2y – 4) = 3(3x + y)
⇒ 2x + 9y = 44        ...(2)
Solving (1) and (2), we get x = 3 and y = 2
