Question

# If $$\left( {a{x^2} + bx + c} \right)y + a'{x^2} + b'x + c' = {0^{}}$$, find the condition that $$x$$ may be a rational function of $$y$$.

Solution

## $$(ax^{2}+bx+c)y+a^{'}x^{2}+b^{'}x+c^{'}=0$$For, y is a rational function,$$y=\cfrac{-(a^{'}x^{2}+b^{'}x+c^{'})}{ax^{2}+bx+c}$$$$\Rightarrow$$ The denominator, $$ax^{2}+bx+c\ne 0$$ $$\Rightarrow x\ne \cfrac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^{2}-4ac}}{2a}$$Maths
