#### Question 1:

The product of two consecutive positive integers is 306. Form the quadratic equation to find the integers, if *x* denotes the smaller integer.

#### Answer:

Since it is given in the question that the numbers we have to find are consecutive positive integer numbers, therefore the difference between the two numbers should be equal to 1.

For e.g. 7 and 8 or 26 and 27 are consecutive numbers.

Let us assume the first number to be ‘*x*’. So our next consecutive number should be ‘*x *+ 1’. Now the question also says that the product of these two numbers is 306.

Therefore,

Hence, this is our required quadratic equation.

#### Question 2:

John and Jivanti together have 45 marbles. Both of them lost 5 marbles each, and the product of the number of marbles they now have is 128. Form the quadratic equation to find how many marbles they had to start with, if John and *x* marbles.

#### Answer:

It is given that John had ‘*x*’ marbles.

We are also given that both John and Javanti had 45 marbles together.

So, Javanti should have ’45 − *x*’ marbles with her.

Now, it is given that both of them lose 5 marbles each.

So in the new situation, John will have ‘*x *− 5’marbles and Javanti will have ’45 − *x *− 5’ marbles.

Also it is given that the product of the number of marbles both of them now is 128.

Therefore,

Hence, this is the required quadratic equation.

#### Question 3:

A cottage industry produces a certain number of toys in a day. The cost of production of each toy (in rupees) was found to be 55 minus the number of articles produced in a day. On a particular day, the total cost of production was Rs. 750. If *x* denotes the number of toys produced that day, from the quadratic equation of find *x*.

#### Answer:

Now we know that ‘*x*’ denotes the total number of toys produced in that day.

But, the cost of production of a single toy is 55 minus the number of toys produced that day i.e. ‘*x*’.

So, the total production cost would be the product of the cost of a single toy and the total number of toys i.e. product of ‘55 −* x*’ and ‘*x*’. Now, it is given here that total production cost of that day was Rs.750.

Therefore,

Hence, this is the required quadratic equation.

Therefore the height of the triangle becomes ‘*x* −7’.

It is also given that the hypotenuse is 13 cm.

By Pythagoras Theorem,

Hence, this is our required quadratic equation.

#### Answer:

Now let us assume that the speed of the express train be ‘*x*’ km/hr. Therefore according to the question speed of the passenger train will be ‘*x *−11’ km/hr. Now we know that the total distance travelled by both the trains was 132 km.

We also know that

So the time taken by express train would be hr and the time taken by the passenger train would behr. Now, we also know that the express train took 1 hr less than the passenger train to travel the whole distance.

Therefore, we have

Therefore, this is the required equation.

#### Question 43:

Find the roots of the quadratic equation $\sqrt{2}{x}^{2}+7x+5\sqrt{2}=0$.

#### Answer:

We write, $7x=5x+2x\mathrm{as}$ $\sqrt{2}{x}^{2}\times 5\sqrt{2}=10{x}^{2}=5x\times 2x$

$\therefore \sqrt{2}{x}^{2}+7x+5\sqrt{2}=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \sqrt{2}{x}^{2}+5x+2x+5\sqrt{2}=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x\left(\sqrt{2}x+5\right)+\sqrt{2}\left(\sqrt{2}x+5\right)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \left(\sqrt{2}x+5\right)\left(x+\sqrt{2}\right)=0$

$\Rightarrow x+\sqrt{2}=0\mathrm{or}\sqrt{2}x+5=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=-\sqrt{2}\mathrm{or}x=-\frac{5}{\sqrt{2}}=-\frac{5\sqrt{2}}{2}$

Hence, the roots of the given equation are $-\sqrt{2}\mathrm{and}$ $-\frac{5\sqrt{2}}{2}$.

$\Rightarrow \frac{ax-{a}^{2}+bx-{b}^{2}}{\left(x-a\right)\left(x-b\right)}=2\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow ax-{a}^{2}+bx-{b}^{2}=2{x}^{2}-2bx-2ax+2ab\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 2{x}^{2}-2bx-2ax+2ab-ax+{a}^{2}-bx+{b}^{2}=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 2{x}^{2}+x\left[-2b-2a-a-b\right]+{a}^{2}+{b}^{2}+2ab=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 2{x}^{2}-3x\left[a+b\right]+{\left(a+b\right)}^{2}=0$

$\Rightarrow 2{x}^{2}-2\left(a+b\right)x-\left(a+b\right)x+{\left(a+b\right)}^{2}=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 2x\left[x-\left(a+b\right)\right]-\left(a+b\right)\left[x-\left(a+b\right)\right]=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \left[2x-\left(a+b\right)\right]\left[x-\left(a+b\right)\right]=0$

#### Answer:

$\frac{x+1}{x-1}+\frac{x-2}{x+2}=4-\frac{2x+3}{x-2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{(x+1)(x+2)+(x-1)(x-2)}{(x-1)(x+2)}=\frac{4(x-2)-(2x+3)}{x-2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{({x}^{2}+2x+x+2)+({x}^{2}-2x-x+2)}{{x}^{2}+2x-x-2}=\frac{4x-8-2x-3}{x-2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{{x}^{2}+3x+2+{x}^{2}-3x+2}{{x}^{2}+x-2}=\frac{2x-11}{x-2}$

$\Rightarrow \frac{2{x}^{2}+4}{{x}^{2}+x-2}=\frac{2x-11}{x-2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (2{x}^{2}+4)(x-2)=(2x-11)({x}^{2}+x-2)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 2{x}^{3}-4{x}^{2}+4x-8=2{x}^{3}+2{x}^{2}-4x-11{x}^{2}-11x+22\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 2{x}^{3}-4{x}^{2}+4x-8=2{x}^{3}-9{x}^{2}-15x+22\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 2{x}^{3}-2{x}^{3}-4{x}^{2}+9{x}^{2}+4x+15x-8-22=0$

$\Rightarrow 5{x}^{2}+19x-30=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 5{x}^{2}+25x-6x-30=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 5x(x+5)-6(x+5)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (5x-6)(x+5)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 5x-6=0,x+5=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=\frac{6}{5},x=-5$

Therefore, the value of

(iv) The given equation is ${x}^{2}+k\left(2x+k-1\right)+2=0$.

$\Rightarrow {x}^{2}+2kx+k\left(k-1\right)+2=0$

So, *a* = 1, *b* = 2*k*, *c* = *k*(*k* − 1) + 2

We know $D={b}^{2}-4ac$

$\Rightarrow D={\left(2k\right)}^{2}-4\times 1\times \left[k\left(k-1\right)+2\right]\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow D=4{k}^{2}-4\left[{k}^{2}-k+2\right]\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow D=4{k}^{2}-4{k}^{2}+4k-8\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow D=4k-8=4\left(k-2\right)$

For equal roots, *D* = 0

Therefore, the value of

(iii) The given quadratic equation is ${x}^{2}-4kx+k=0$, and roots are real and equal.

Then find the value of *k.*

Here,

${x}^{2}-4kx+k=0$

So,

$a=1,b=-4k\mathrm{and}c=k.$

As we know that $D={b}^{2}-4ac$

Putting the value of $a=1,b=-4k\mathrm{and}c=k.$

$D={\left(-4k\right)}^{2}-4\left(1\right)\left(k\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=16{k}^{2}-4k$

The given equation will have real and equal roots, if *D* = 0.

So, $16{k}^{2}-4k=0$

Now factorizing the above equation,

$16{k}^{2}-4k=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 4k\left(4k-1\right)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 4k=0\mathrm{or}4k-1=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow k=0\mathrm{or}k=\frac{1}{4}$

Therefore, the value of $k=0,\frac{1}{4}$.

(iv) The given quadratic equation is $kx\left(x-2\sqrt{5}\right)+10=0$, and roots are real and equal.

Then find the value of *k.*

Here,

$kx\left(x-2\sqrt{5}\right)+10=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow k{x}^{2}-2\sqrt{5}kx+10=0$

So,

$a=k,b=-2\sqrt{5}k\mathrm{and}c=10.$

As we know that $D={b}^{2}-4ac$

Putting the value of $a=k,b=-2\sqrt{5}k\mathrm{and}c=10.$

$D={\left(-2\sqrt{5}k\right)}^{2}-4\left(k\right)\left(10\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=20{k}^{2}-40k$

The given equation will have real and equal roots, if *D* = 0.

So, $20{k}^{2}-40k=0$

Now factorizing the above equation,

$20{k}^{2}-40k=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 20k\left(k-2\right)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 20k=0\mathrm{or}k-2=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow k=0\mathrm{or}k=2$

Therefore, the value of $k=0,2$.(v) The given quadratic equation is $px(x-3)+9=0$, and roots are real and equal.

Then find the value of *p.*

Here,

$px(x-3)+9=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow p{x}^{2}-3px+9=0$

So,

$a=p,b=-3p\mathrm{and}c=9.$

As we know that $D={b}^{2}-4ac$

Putting the value of $a=p,b=-3p\mathrm{and}c=9.$

$D={\left(-3p\right)}^{2}-4\left(p\right)\left(9\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=9{p}^{2}-36p$

The given equation will have real and equal roots, if *D* = 0.

So, $9{p}^{2}-36p=0$

Now factorizing the above equation,

$9{p}^{2}-36p=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 9p\left(p-4\right)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 9p=0\mathrm{or}p-4=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow p=0\mathrm{or}p=4$

Therefore, the value of $p=0,4.$

(vi) The given quadratic equation is $4{x}^{2}+px+3=0$, and roots are real and equal.

Then find the value of *p.*

Here,

$4{x}^{2}+px+3=0$

So,

$a=4,b=p\mathrm{and}c=3.$

As we know that $D={b}^{2}-4ac$

Putting the value of $a=4,b=p\mathrm{and}c=3.$

$D={\left(p\right)}^{2}-4\left(4\right)\left(3\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}={p}^{2}-48$

The given equation will have real and equal roots, if *D* = 0.

So, ${p}^{2}-48=0$

Now factorizing the above equation,

${p}^{2}-48=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {p}^{2}-{\left(4\sqrt{3}\right)}^{2}=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \left(p-4\sqrt{3}\right)\left(p+4\sqrt{3}\right)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow p-4\sqrt{3}=0\mathrm{or}p+4\sqrt{3}=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow p=4\sqrt{3}\mathrm{or}p=-4\sqrt{3}$

Therefore, the value of $p=\pm 4\sqrt{3}.$

#### Question 9:

Find the values of *k* for which the quadratic equation $\left(3k+1\right){x}^{2}+2\left(k+1\right)x+1=0$ has equal roots. Also, find the roots.

#### Answer:

The given quadric equation is $\left(3k+1\right){x}^{2}+2\left(k+1\right)x+1=0$, and roots are real and equal.

Then, find the value of *k.*

Here, $a=3k+1,b=2(k+1)\mathrm{and}c=1$.

As we know that $D={b}^{2}-4ac$

Putting the values of $a=3k+1,b=2(k+1)\mathrm{and}c=1$.

$D={\left[2\left(k+1\right)\right]}^{2}-4\left(3k+1\right)\left(1\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=4({k}^{2}+2k+1)-12k-4\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=4{k}^{2}+8k+4-12k-4\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=4{k}^{2}-4k$

The given equation will have real and equal roots, if *D* = 0

Thus, $4{k}^{2}-4k=0$

$\Rightarrow 4k(k-1)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow k=0\mathrm{or}k-1=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow k=0\mathrm{or}k=1$

Therefore, the value of *k* is 0 or 1.

Now, for *k* = 0, the equation becomes

${x}^{2}+2x+1=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}+x+x+1=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x(x+1)+1(x+1)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (x+1{)}^{2}=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=-1,-1$

for *k* = 1, the equation becomes

$4{x}^{2}+4x+1=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 4{x}^{2}+2x+2x+1=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 2x(2x+1)+1(2x+1)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (2x+1{)}^{2}=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=-\frac{1}{2},-\frac{1}{2}$

Hence, the roots of the equation are $-1\mathrm{and}-\frac{1}{2}$.

#### Question 10:

Find the values of *p* for which the quadratic equation $\left(2p+1\right){x}^{2}-\left(7p+2\right)x+\left(7p-3\right)=0$ has equal roots. Also, find these roots.

#### Answer:

The given quadric equation is $\left(2p+1\right){x}^{2}-\left(7p+2\right)x+\left(7p-3\right)=0$, and roots are real and equal.

Then, find the value of *p.*

Here, $a=2p+1,b=-7p-2\mathrm{and}c=7p-3$.

As we know that $D={b}^{2}-4ac$

Putting the values of $a=2p+1,b=-7p-2\mathrm{and}c=7p-3$.

$D={\left[-\left(7p+2\right)\right]}^{2}-4\left(2p+1\right)\left(7p-3\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=(49{p}^{2}+28p+4)-4\left(14{p}^{2}-6p+7p-3\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=49{p}^{2}+28p+4-56{p}^{2}-4p+12\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=-7{p}^{2}+24p+16$

The given equation will have real and equal roots, if *D* = 0

Thus, $-7{p}^{2}+24p+16=0$

$\Rightarrow 7{p}^{2}-24p-16=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 7{p}^{2}-28p+4p-16=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 7p(p-4)+4(p-4)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (7p+4)(p-4)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 7p+4=0\mathrm{or}p-4=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow p=-\frac{4}{7}\mathrm{or}p=4$

Therefore, the value of *p* is 4 or $-\frac{4}{7}$.

Now, for *p* = 4, the equation becomes

$9{x}^{2}-30x+25=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 9{x}^{2}-15x-15x+25=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 3x(3x-5)-5(3x-5)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (3x-5{)}^{2}=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=\frac{5}{3},\frac{5}{3}$

for *p* = $-\frac{4}{7}$, the equation becomes

$\left(-\frac{8}{7}+1\right){x}^{2}-\left(-4+2\right)x+\left(-4-3\right)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \left(\frac{-8+7}{7}\right){x}^{2}+2x-7=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow -\frac{1}{7}{x}^{2}+2x-7=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow -{x}^{2}+14x-49=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}-14x+49=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}-7x-7x+49=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x(x-7)-7(x-7)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (x-7{)}^{2}=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=7,7$

Hence, the roots of the equation are $\frac{5}{3}\mathrm{and}7$.

#### Question 11:

If −5 is a root of the quadratic equation $2{x}^{2}+px-15=0$ and the quadratic equation $p({x}^{2}+x)+k=0$ has equal roots, find the value of *k*.

#### Answer:

The given quadratic equation is $2{x}^{2}+px-15=0$, and one root is −5.

Then, it satisfies the given equation.

$2{\left(-5\right)}^{2}+p\left(-5\right)-15=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 50-5p-15=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow -5p=-35\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow p=7$

The quadratic equation $p({x}^{2}+x)+k=0$, has equal roots.

Putting the value of *p*, we get

$7\left({x}^{2}+x\right)+k=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 7{x}^{2}+7x+k=0$

Here, $a=7,b=7\mathrm{and}c=k$.

As we know that $D={b}^{2}-4ac$

Putting the values of $a=7,b=7\mathrm{and}c=k$.

$D={\left(7\right)}^{2}-4\left(7\right)\left(k\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=49-28k$

The given equation will have real and equal roots, if *D* = 0

Thus, $49-28k=0$

$\Rightarrow 28k=49\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow k=\frac{49}{28}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow k=\frac{7}{4}$

Therefore, the value of *k* is $\frac{7}{4}$.

#### Question 12:

If 2 is a root of the quadratic equation $3{x}^{2}+px-8=0$ and the quadratic equation $4{x}^{2}-2px+k=0$ has equal roots, find the value of *k*.

#### Answer:

The given quadratic equation is $3{x}^{2}+px-8=0$, and one root is 2.

Then, it satisfies the given equation.

$3{\left(2\right)}^{2}+p\left(2\right)-8=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 12+2p-8=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 2p=-4\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow p=-2$

The quadratic equation $4{x}^{2}-2px+k=0$, has equal roots.

Putting the value of *p*, we get

$4{x}^{2}-2(-2)x+k=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 4{x}^{2}+4x+k=0$

Here, $a=4,b=4\mathrm{and}c=k$.

As we know that $D={b}^{2}-4ac$

Putting the values of $a=4,b=4\mathrm{and}c=k$.

$D={\left(4\right)}^{2}-4\left(4\right)\left(k\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=16-16k$

The given equation will have real and equal roots, if *D* = 0

Thus, $16-16k=0$

$\Rightarrow 16k=16\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow k=1$

Therefore, the value of *k* is 1.

#### Question 13:

If 1 is a root of the quadratic equation $3{x}^{2}+ax-2=0$ and the quadratic equation $a({x}^{2}+6x)-b=0$ has equal roots, find the value of *b*.

#### Answer:

The given quadratic equation is $3{x}^{2}+ax-2=0$, and one root is 1.

Then, it satisfies the given equation.

$3{\left(1\right)}^{2}+a\left(1\right)-2=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 3+a-2=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 1+a=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow a=-1$

The quadratic equation $a({x}^{2}+6x)-b=0$, has equal roots.

Putting the value of *a*, we get

$-1\left({x}^{2}+6x\right)-b=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}+6x+b=0$

Here, $A=1,B=6\mathrm{and}C=b$.

As we know that $D={B}^{2}-4AC$

Putting the values of $A=1,B=6\mathrm{and}C=b$.

$D={\left(6\right)}^{2}-4\left(1\right)\left(b\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=36-4b$

The given equation will have real and equal roots, if *D* = 0

Thus, $36-4b=0$

$\Rightarrow 4b=36\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow b=9$

Therefore, the value of *b* is $9$.

#### Question 14:

Find the value of *p* for which the quadratic equation $\left(p+1\right){x}^{2}-6(p+1)x+3(p+9)=0,p\ne -1$ has equal roots. Hence, find the roots of the equation.**Disclaimer:** There is a misprinting in the given question. In the question '*q*' is printed instead of 9.

#### Answer:

The given quadratic equation $\left(p+1\right){x}^{2}-6(p+1)x+3(p+9)=0$, has equal roots.

Here, $a=p+1,b=-6p-6\mathrm{and}c=3p+27$.

As we know that $D={b}^{2}-4ac$

Putting the values of $a=p+1,b=-6p-6\mathrm{and}c=3p+27$.

$D={\left[-6(p+1)\right]}^{2}-4\left(p+1\right)\left[3\left(p+9\right)\right]\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=36({p}^{2}+2p+1)-12({p}^{2}+10p+9)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=36{p}^{2}-12{p}^{2}+72p-120p+36-108\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}=24{p}^{2}-48p-72$

The given equation will have real and equal roots, if *D* = 0

Thus, $24{p}^{2}-48p-72=0$

$\Rightarrow {p}^{2}-2p-3=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {p}^{2}-3p+p-3=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow p(p-3)+1(p-3)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (p+1)(p-3)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow p+1=0\mathrm{or}p-3=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow p=-1\mathrm{or}p=3$

Therefore, the value of *p* is −1, 3.

It is given that *p* ≠ −1, thus *p* = 3 only.

Now the equation becomes

$4{x}^{2}-24x+36=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}-6x+9=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}-3x-3x+9=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x(x-3)-3(x-3)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (x-3{)}^{2}=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=3,3$

â€‹Hence, the root of the equation is 3.

By cross multiplication

$\Rightarrow 18=x\left(9-x\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}-9x+18=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}-6x-3x+18=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \left(x-6\right)x-3\left(x-6\right)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \left(x-6\right)\left(x-3\right)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=6,3$

Since, *x *being a number,

Therefore,

When x = 6 then

(9 − *x*) = (9 − 6) = 3

When x = 3 then

(9 − *x*) = (9 − 3) = 6

${\left(7x\right)}^{2}+{\left[7\left(x+1\right)\right]}^{2}=637\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 49{x}^{2}+49({x}^{2}+2x+1)=637\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 49{x}^{2}+49{x}^{2}+98x+49-637=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 98{x}^{2}+98x-588=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}+x-6=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}+3x-2x-6=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x(x+3)-2(x+3)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (x-2)(x+3)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x-2=0\mathrm{or}x+3=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=2\mathrm{or}x=-3$

Since, the numbers are multiples of 7,

Therefore, one number = 7 × 2 =14.

Then another number will be

$7(x+1)=7\times 3=21$

Thus, the two consecutive multiples of 7 are 14 and 21.

#### Question 39:

The sum of the squares of two consecutive even numbers is 340. Find the numbers.

#### Answer:

Let one of the number be *x** *then the other number be *x* + 2.

Then according to question,

${x}^{2}+{\left(x+2\right)}^{2}=340\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}+{x}^{2}+4x+4=340\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 2{x}^{2}+4x-336=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}+2x-168=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}+14x-12x-168=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x(x+14)-12(x+14)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (x-12)(x+14)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x-12=0\mathrm{or}x+14=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=12\mathrm{or}x=-14$

Since, *x *being an even number,

Therefore, *x *= 12.

Then another number will be

$x+2=12+2=14$

Thus, the two consecutive even numbers are 12 and 14.

#### Question 40:

The numerator of a fraction is 3 less than the denominator. If 2 is added to both the numerator and the denominator, then the sum of the new fraction and the original fraction is $\frac{29}{20}$. Find the original fraction.

#### Answer:

Let the denominator of the original fraction be *x** *then the numerator be *x* − 3.

Then according to question,

$\frac{x-3}{x}+\frac{x-3+2}{x+2}=\frac{29}{20}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{x-3}{x}+\frac{x-1}{x+2}=\frac{29}{20}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{\left(x-3\right)\left(x+2\right)+\left(x-1\right)x}{x\left(x+2\right)}=\frac{29}{20}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{{x}^{2}-3x+2x-6+{x}^{2}-x}{{x}^{2}+2x}=\frac{29}{20}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 20(2{x}^{2}-2x-6)=29({x}^{2}+2x)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 40{x}^{2}-40x-120-29{x}^{2}-58x=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 11{x}^{2}-98x-120=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 11{x}^{2}-110x+12x-120=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 11x(x-10)+12(x-10)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (11x+12)(x-10)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 11x+12=0\mathrm{or}x-10=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=-\frac{12}{11}\mathrm{or}x=10$

Since, *x *being an integer,

Therefore, *x *= 10.

Then the numerator will be

$x-3=10-3=7$

Thus, the original fraction is $\frac{7}{10}$.

#### Question 1:

The speed of a boat in still water is 8 km/hr. It can go 15 km upstream and 22 km downstream in 5 hours. Find the speed of the stream.

#### Answer:

Let the speed of stream be then

Speed downstream.

Therefore, Speed upstream

Time taken by the boat to go upstream

Time taken by the boat to returns downstream

Now it is given that the boat returns to the same point in 5 hr.

So,

$\frac{296-7x}{64-{x}^{2}}=5$

$5{x}^{2}-7x+296-320=0$

$5{x}^{2}-7x-24=0$

$5{x}^{2}-15x+8x-24=0$

$5x\left(x-3\right)+8\left(x-3\right)=0$

$\left(x-3\right)\left(5x+8\right)=0$

$x=3,x=-\frac{8}{5}$

But, the speed of the stream can never be negative.

#### Answer:

Let the speed of the fast train bethen

the speed of the slow train be

Time taken by the fast train to cover

Time taken by the slow train to cover

Therefore,

$\frac{200}{\left(x-10\right)}-\frac{200}{x}=1\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{200x-200\left(x-10\right)}{x\left(x-10\right)}=1\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{200x-220x+2000}{{x}^{2}-10x}=1\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}-10x=2000\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}-10x-2000=0$

$\Rightarrow {x}^{2}-50x+40x-2000=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x\left(x-50\right)+40\left(x-50\right)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \left(x-50\right)\left(x+40\right)=0$

So, either

#### Answer:

*Let the original speed of the train be *x.

For a distance of 63 km, let the speed be x km/h.

So, time = $\frac{63}{x}$

For a distance of 72 km, speed = 6 + x km/h

Time = $\frac{72}{x+6}$

Total time = 3 hours

$\frac{63}{x}+\frac{72}{x+6}=3\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{63x+378+72x}{x\left(x+6\right)}=3\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 63x+378+72x=3{x}^{2}+18x\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 3{x}^{2}-117x-378=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \left(3x-126\right)\left(x+3\right)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=-3,42$

#### Question 13:

While boarding an aeroplane, a passenger got hurt. The pilot showing promptness and concern, made arrangements to hospitalise the injured and so the plane started late by 30 minutes to reach the destination, 1500 km away in time, the pilot increased the speed by 100 km/hr. Find the original speed/hour of the plane.

#### Answer:

Let the original speed of the plane be *x* km/hr.

Increased speed of the plane = (*x* + 100) km/hr.

Total Distance = 1500 km.

We know that, $\mathrm{Time}=\frac{\mathrm{Distance}}{\mathrm{Speed}}$

Time taken to reach the destination at original speed = *t*_{1} = $\frac{1500}{x}$ hr

Time taken to reach the destination at increasing speed = *t*_{2} = $\frac{1500}{x+100}$ hr

According to the question,

*t*_{1} − *t*_{2} = 30 min

$\Rightarrow \frac{1500}{x}-\frac{1500}{x+100}=\frac{30}{60}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{1500(x+100)-1500x}{x(x+100)}=\frac{1}{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{1500x+150000-1500x}{{x}^{2}+100x}=\frac{1}{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{150000}{{x}^{2}+100x}=\frac{1}{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 300000={x}^{2}+100x\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}+100x-300000=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}+600x-500x-300000=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x(x+600)-500(x+600)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (x-500)(x+600)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x-500=0\mathrm{or}x+600=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=500\mathrm{or}x=-600$

Since, speed cannot be negative.

Thus, the original speed/hour of the plane is 500 km/hr.

#### Question 14:

A motor boat whose speed in still water is 18 km/hr takes 1 hour more to go 24 km up stream that to return down stream to the same spot. Find the speed of the stream.

#### Answer:

Let the speed of the stream be *x* km/hr.

speed of the boat in still water = 18 km/hr.

Total Distance = 24 km.

We know that,

Speed of the boat up stream = speed of the boat in still water − speed of the stream

= (18 − *x*) km/hr

Speed of the boat down stream = speed of the boat in still water + speed of the stream

= (18 + *x*) km/hr

Time of up stream journey = *t*_{1} = $\frac{24}{18-x}$ hr

Time of down stream journey = *t*_{2} = $\frac{24}{18+x}$ hr

According to the question,

*t*_{1} − *t*_{2} = 1 hr

$\Rightarrow \frac{24}{18-x}-\frac{24}{18+x}=1\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{24(18+x-18+x)}{(18-x)(18+x)}=1\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{24\left(2x\right)}{(18{)}^{2}-{x}^{2}}=1\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 48x=324-{x}^{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}+48x-324=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}+54x-6x-324=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x(x+54)-6(x+54)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (x-6)(x+54)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x-6=0\mathrm{or}x+54=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=6\mathrm{or}x=-54$

Since, speed cannot be negative.

Thus, speed of the stream is 6 km/hr.

we know that

$\mathrm{speed}=\frac{\mathrm{distance}}{\mathrm{time}}$

$x=\frac{2592}{x/2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}{x}^{2}=5184\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}x=\sqrt{5184}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}x=72\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Speed}\mathrm{of}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{car}=72\mathrm{km}/\mathrm{h}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{Time}\mathrm{taken}\mathrm{to}\mathrm{cover}\mathrm{the}\mathrm{given}\mathrm{distance}=36\mathrm{h}$

Then according to question,

$-{x}^{2}+20x-64-48=0$

${x}^{2}-20x+112=0$

Let *D* be the discriminant of the above quadratic equation.

Then,

Putting the value of *a* = 1, *b* = − 20 and *c* = 112

#### Question 8:

Sum of the area of two squares is 400 cm^{2}. If the difference of their perimeters is 16 cm, find the sides of two squares.

#### Answer:

Let the side of the smaller square be *x *cm.

Perimeter of any square = (4 × side of the square)* *cm.

It is given that the difference of the perimeters of two squares is 16 cm.

Then side of the bigger square = $\frac{16+4x}{4}=\left(4+x\right)$ cm.

According to the question,

${x}^{2}+{\left(4+x\right)}^{2}=400\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}+16+{x}^{2}+8x=400\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 2{x}^{2}+8x-384=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}+4x-192=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}+16x-12x-192=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x(x+16)-12(x+16)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (x-12)(x+16)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x-12=0\mathrm{or}x+16=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=12\mathrm{or}x=-16$

Since, side of the square cannot be negative.

Thus, the side of the smaller square is 12 cm.

and the side of the bigger square is (4 + 12) = 16 cm.

#### Question 9:

The area of a rectangular plot is 528 m^{2}. The length of the plot (in metres) is one metre more then twice its breadth. Find the length and the breadth of the plot.

#### Answer:

Let the breadth of the rectangular plot be *x *m.

Then, the length of the rectangular plot = (1 + 2*x*) m.

According to the question,

Length × Breadth = Area

$x(1+2x)=528\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 2{x}^{2}+x-528=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 2{x}^{2}+33x-32x-528=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x(2x+33)-16(2x+33)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (x-16)(2x+33)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x-16=0\mathrm{or}2x+33=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=16\mathrm{or}x=-\frac{33}{2}$

Since, length and breadth of the rectangle cannot be negative.

Thus, the breadth of the rectangular plot is 16 m.

and the length of the rectangular plot is (1 + 2×16) = 33 m.

#### Question 4:

Two pipes running together can fill a tank in $11\frac{1}{9}\mathrm{minutes}$. If one pipe takes 5 minutes more than the other to fill the tank separately, find the time in which each pipe would fill the tank separately.

#### Answer:

Let the first pipe takes *x* minutes to fill the tank. Then the second pipe will takes minutes to fill the tank.

Since, the first pipe takes *x* minutes to fill the tank.

Therefore, portion of the tank filled by the first pipe in one minutes

So, portion of the tank filled by the first pipe in minutes

Similarly,

Portion of the tank filled by the second pipe in minutes

It is given that the tank is filled in minutes.

So,

But, cannot be negative.

Therefore, when *x* = 20 then

Hence, the first water tape will takes 20 min to fill the tank, and the second water tape will take 25 min to fill the tank.

#### Question 5:

To fill a swimming pool two pipes are used. If the pipe of larger diameter used for 4 hours and the pipe of smaller diameter for 9 hours, only half of the pool can be filled. Find, how long it would take for each pipe to fill the pool separately, if the pipe of smaller diameter takes 10 hours more than the pipe of larger diameter to fill the pool?

#### Answer:

Let the pipe of larger diameter takes* x* hours.

Then, the pipe of smaller diameter takes *x *+ 10 hours to fill the pool.

Now, the part of the pool filled by the larger pipe in 1 hour = $\frac{1}{x}$

and the part of the pool filled by the smaller pipe in 1 hour = $\frac{1}{x+10}$

If the larger pipe is used for 4 hours and the smaller pipe is used for 9 hours, only half of the pool can be filled,

$\therefore \frac{4}{x}+\frac{9}{x+10}=\frac{1}{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{4(x+10)+9x}{x(x+10)}=\frac{1}{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow \frac{4x+40+9x}{{x}^{2}+10x}=\frac{1}{2}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow 2(13x+40)={x}^{2}+10x\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}+10x-26x-80=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}-16x-80=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow {x}^{2}-20x+4x-80=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x(x-20)+4(x-20)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow (x+4)(x-20)=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x+4=0\mathrm{or}x-20=0\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\Rightarrow x=-4\mathrm{or}x=20$

Since, time cannot be negative.

∴ *x* = 20

Thus, the pipe of larger diameter takes* *20 hours and the pipe of smaller diameter takes (20 + 10) = 30 hours to fill the pool separately.
