Question

# If $$x$$ is real, then the value of the expression $$\dfrac{x^2+14x+9}{x^2+2x+3}$$ lies between

A
5 and 4
B
4 and 5
C
5 and 4
D
none of these

Solution

## The correct option is B $$-5$$ and $$4$$$$y=\cfrac { { x }^{ 2 }+14x+9 }{ { x }^{ 2 }+2x+3 } =1+\cfrac { 12x+6 }{ { x }^{ 2 }+2x+3 } \\ y'=\cfrac { ({ x }^{ 2 }+2x+3)(12)-(12x+6)(2x+2) }{ { ({ x }^{ 2 }+2x+3) }^{ 2 } } \\ y'=\cfrac { -12{ x }^{ 2 }-12x+24 }{ { ({ x }^{ 2 }+2x+3) }^{ 2 } }$$for max-min, $$y'=0$$so, $$x^2+x-2=0\\ \implies x=1,-2$$at $$x=1,y=4$$at $$x=-2, y=-5$$and $$\lim_{x\to \infty}y=1$$and $$y(x=0)=3$$concluding all these graph of $$y$$ is shown above.So, we can say that $$y$$ lies between $$-5$$ and $$4$$.Mathematics
