(1) 10√2
(2) 10
(3) 5
(4) 5√2
Ans.
(2)

(k + 1)tan2x - √2λ tan x + (k - 1) = 0
Given that α and β be the two real roots of the given equation, then

JEE Main Previous year questions (2016-20): Quadratic Equation and Inequations (Inequalities) Notes | Study Mathematics For JEE - JEE
Now, tan2(α + β) = 50 ⇒ λ2/2  = 50
⇒ λ= 100 ⇒ λ = ±10

Q.2. Let α and β be the roots of the equation x2 - x - 1 = 0. If pk = (α)k + (β)k, k ≥ 1, then which one of the following statements is not true?    (2020)
(1) p3 = p5 - p4
(2) p5 = 11
(3) (p1 + p2 + p3 + p4 + p5) = 26
(4) p5 = p2.p3
Ans.
(4)
Solution. Given, α and β be the roots of the equation x2 - x - 1 = 0. Therefore,
α + β = 1 and αβ = -1
Now, pk = (α)+ (β)k
p1 = α + β  = 1 ...(1)
p2 = α2 + β2 = (α + β)2 - 2αβ
⇒ p2 = 1 + 2 = 3 ...(2)
p3 = α3 + β3 = (α + β)3 - 3αβ(α + β)
p3 = 1 + 3 = 4 ...(3)
Since α and β be the roots of the equation x2 - x − 1 = 0, then
α2 - α - 1 = 0 ⇒ αk - αk-1 - αk-2 = 0 ...(4)
β2 - β - 1 = 0 ⇒ βk - βk-1 - βk-2 = 0 ...(5)
From Eqs. (4) and 5, we get pk = pk-1 + pk-2. Hence, p4 = 7 and p5 = 11 ⇒ p5 ≠ p2.p3

Q.3. If the equation x2 + bx + 45 = 0 (b ∈ R) has conjugate complex roots and they satisfy |z+1| = 2√10, then    (2020)
(1) b2 - b = 30
(2) b+ b = 72
(3) b2 - b = 42
(4) b2 + b = 12
Ans.
(1)
Solution. Let z = α ± iβ be the roots of the x2 + bx + 45 = 0, then
α + iβ + α - iβ = -b ⇒ 2α = -b ...(1)
(α + iβ)(α - iβ) = 45 ⇒ (α2 + β2) = 45 ...(2)
The roots satisfy the equation |z + 1| = 2√10, then
(α + 1)2 + β2 = 40 ...(3)
From Eqs. (2) and (3), we get
(α + 1)2 - α2 = -5 ⇒ 2α + 1 = -5 ⇒ α = -3
Hence, b2 + b = (-6)2 - 6 = 30

Q.4. The least positive value of ‘a’ for which the equation 2x+(a-10)x+ 33/2 = 2a has real roots is _____.    (2020)
Ans.
(8.00)
Solution. The equation 2x+(a-10)x + 33/2 = 2a has real roots, therefore
JEE Main Previous year questions (2016-20): Quadratic Equation and Inequations (Inequalities) Notes | Study Mathematics For JEE - JEE
Hence, the least positive value of ‘a’ is 8.

(1) x2 + 101x + 100 = 0
(2) x2 - 102x + 101 = 0
(3) x2 - 101x + 100 = 0
(4) x2 + 102x + 101 = 0
Ans. 
(2)
Solution. Given,

Now,
JEE Main Previous year questions (2016-20): Quadratic Equation and Inequations (Inequalities) Notes | Study Mathematics For JEE - JEE
JEE Main Previous year questions (2016-20): Quadratic Equation and Inequations (Inequalities) Notes | Study Mathematics For JEE - JEE
JEE Main Previous year questions (2016-20): Quadratic Equation and Inequations (Inequalities) Notes | Study Mathematics For JEE - JEE (since ω3 = 1)
b = 1 + ω+ ω6 + ... + ω300 = 101
Hence, the equation of quadratic equation is
x2 - (a + b)x + ab = 0 ⇒ x2 - 102x  + 101 = 0

Q.6. Let JEE Main Previous year questions (2016-20): Quadratic Equation and Inequations (Inequalities) Notes | Study Mathematics For JEE - JEE a ≠ 0 be such that the equation ax2 - 2bx  + 5 = 0 has a repeated root α, which is also a root of the equation x2 - 2bx - 10 = 0. If β  is the other root of this equation, then α2 + β2 is equal to    (2020)
(1) 25
(2) 26
(3) 28
(4) 24
Ans.
(1)
Solution. The equation ax2 - 2bx + 5 = 0 has a repeated root α, then
D = 0 ⇒ 4b2 - 4 . a . 5 = 0 ⇒ b2 = 5a ...(1)
JEE Main Previous year questions (2016-20): Quadratic Equation and Inequations (Inequalities) Notes | Study Mathematics For JEE - JEE ...(2)
Since α is also, the root of equation x2 - 2bx - 10 = 0. So,
α2 - 2bα - 10 = 0 ...(3)
2 - 2bα + 5 = 0 ...(4)
From Eqs. (3) and (4), we get
(a - 1)α2 + 15 = 0 ⇒ (a - 1)b2 + 15a2 = 0
⇒ (a - 1) x 5a +15a2 = 0 ⇒ 20a2 - 5a = 0
JEE Main Previous year questions (2016-20): Quadratic Equation and Inequations (Inequalities) Notes | Study Mathematics For JEE - JEE
Now, α + β = 2b and αβ = -10
Hence, (α + β)2 = α2 + β+ 2αβ = 4b2
⇒α2 + β= 5 - 2(-10) = 25

Q.7. Let α and β be two roots of the equation x2 + 2x + 2 = 0, then α1515 is equal to:   (2019)
