=> 4x = 400

=>    x = \(\frac{400}{4}\)

=>    x = 100

(ii) \(14x = (47)^{2} – (33)^{2}\)

sol:

we know that, (a + b) (a – b) = \(a^{2} – b^{2}\)

=> \(14x = (47)^{2} – (33)^{2}\)

=> 14x = (47 + 33) (47 – 33)

(iii) \(5x = (50)^{2} – (40)^{2}\)

sol:

we know that, (a + b) (a – b) = \(a^{2} – b^{2}\)

=> \(5x = (50)^{2} – (40)^{2}\)

=> 5x = (50 + 40) (50 – 40)

=> 5x = \(90\times 10\)

=> 5x = 900

=>    x = \(\frac{900}{5}\)

=>    x = 180

Q7 If \(x + \frac{1}{x} = 20\) , find the value of \(x^{2} + \frac{1}{x^{2}}\)

sol:

Given that,

\(x + \frac{1}{x} = 20\)

squaring on both sides

=> \((x + \frac{1}{x})^{2} = (20)^{2}\)

=> \((x + \frac{1}{x})^{2} = 400\)

we know that, \((a + b)^{2} = a^{2} + 2ab + b^{2}\)

=> \(x^{2} + 2\times x\times \frac{1}{x} + (\frac{1}{x})^{2} = 400\)

=> \(x^{2} + 2 + (\frac{1}{x})^{2} = 400\)

=> \(x^{2} + \frac{1}{x^{2}} = 400 – 2\)

=> \(x^{2} + \frac{1}{x^{2}} = 398\)

hence, \(x^{2} + \frac{1}{x^{2}} = 398\)

Q8 If \(x – \frac{1}{x} = 3\), find the values of \(x^{2} + \frac{1}{x^{2}}\), \(x^{4} + \frac{1}{x^{4}}\)

sol:

Given that,

\(x – \frac{1}{x} = 3\)

squaring on both sides

=> \((x – \frac{1}{x})^{2} = (3)^{2}\)

=> \((x – \frac{1}{x})^{2} = 9\)

we know that, \((a – b)^{2} = a^{2} – 2ab + b^{2}\)

=> \(x^{2} – 2\times x\times \frac{1}{x} + (\frac{1}{x})^{2} = 9\)

=> \(x^{2} – 2 + (\frac{1}{x})^{2} = 9\)

=> \(x^{2} + \frac{1}{x^{2}} = 9 + 2\)

=> \(x^{2} + \frac{1}{x^{2}} = 11\)

Again, squaring on both sides

=> \((x^{2} + \frac{1}{x^{2}})^{2} = (11)^{2}\)

=> \((x^{2} + \frac{1}{x^{2}})^{2} = 121\)

=> \(x^{2} + 2\times (x^{2})\times (\frac{1}{x^{2}}) + (\frac{1}{x^{2}})^{2} = 121\)

=> \(x^{4} + 2 + \frac{1}{x^{4}} = 121\)

=> \(x^{4} + \frac{1}{x^{4}} = 121 – 2\)

=> \(x^{4} + \frac{1}{x^{4}} = 119\)

hence, \(x^{4} + \frac{1}{x^{4}} = 119\)

Q9 If \(x^{2} + \frac{1}{x^{2}} = 18\), find the values of \(x + \frac{1}{x}\), \(x – \frac{1}{x}\)

Given that,

\(x^{2} + \frac{1}{x^{2}} = 18\), find the values of \(x + \frac{1}{x}\), \(x – \frac{1}{x}\)

squaring the above equation

\((x + \frac{1}{x})^{2}\) = \(x^{2} + 2\times x\times \frac{1}{x} + (\frac{1}{x})^{2}\)

= \(x^{2} + 2 + \frac{1}{x^{2}}\)

=> \((x + \frac{1}{x})^{2}\) = \(x^{2} + 2 + \frac{1}{x^{2}}\)

=> \((x + \frac{1}{x})^{2}\) = 18 + 2

=> \((x + \frac{1}{x})^{2}\) = 20

=> \(x + \frac{1}{x} = \pm \sqrt{20}\)

consider, \(x – \frac{1}{x}\)

squaring the above equation

\((x – \frac{1}{x})^{2}\) = \(x^{2} – 2\times x\times \frac{1}{x} + (\frac{1}{x})^{2}\)

= \(x^{2} – 2 + \frac{1}{x^{2}}\)

=> \((x – \frac{1}{x})^{2}\) = \(x^{2} – 2 + \frac{1}{x^{2}}\)

=> \((x – \frac{1}{x})^{2}\) = 18 – 2

=> \((x – \frac{1}{x})^{2}\) = 16

=> \(x – \frac{1}{x} = \pm \sqrt{20}\)

x + y = 4 and xy = 2

we know that, \((a + b)^{2} = a^{2} + 2ab + b^{2}\)

=> \(x^{2} + y^{2} = (x + y)^{2} – 2xy\)

=> \(x^{2} + y^{2} = 4^{2} – (2 \times 2)\)

=> \(x^{2} + y^{2} = 16 – 4\)

=> \(x^{2} + y^{2} = 12\)

Q11 If x – y = 7 and xy = 9,find the value of \(x^{2} + y^{2}\)

sol:

Given that,

x – y = 7 and xy = 9

we know that, \((a – b)^{2} = a^{2} – 2ab + b^{2}\)

=> \(x^{2} – y^{2} = (x – y)^{2} + 2xy\)

=> \(x^{2} – y^{2} = 7^{2} + (2 \times 9)\)

=> \(x^{2} – y^{2} = 49 + 18 \)

=> \(x^{2} – y^{2} = 67\)

3x + 5y = 11 and xy = 2

we know that, \((a + b)^{2} = a^{2} + 2ab + b^{2}\)

\((3x + 5y)^{2} = (3x)^{2} + 2\times (3x)\times (5y) + (5y)^{2}\)

=> \((3x + 5y)^{2} = 9x^{2} + 30xy + 25y^{2}\)

=> \(9x^{2} + 25y^{2} = (3x + 5y)^{2} – 10xy\)

=> \(9x^{2} + 25y^{2} = (11)^{2} – (30\times 2)\)

=>\(9x^{2} + 25y^{2} = 121 – 60\)

=> \(9x^{2} + 25y^{2} = 61\)

Q13 Find the values of the following expressions

(i)  \(16x^{2} + 24x + 9\) when x = \(\frac{7}{4}\)

Sol:

Given, \(16x^{2} + 24x + 9\) and x = \(\frac{7}{4}\)

we know that, \((a + b)^{2} = a^{2} + 2ab + b^{2}\)

\(16x^{2} + 24x + 9\) = \((4x + 3)^{2}\)

=> \(16x^{2} + 24x + 9\) = \((4(\frac{7}{4}) + 3)^{2}\)

=> \(16x^{2} + 24x + 9\) = \((7 + 3)^{2}\)

=> \(16x^{2} + 24x + 9\) = \((10)^{2}\)

=> \(16x^{2} + 24x + 9\) = 100

(ii) \(64x^{2} + 81y^{2} + 144xy\) when x = 11 and y = \(\frac{4}{3}\)

sol:

Given, \(64x^{2} + 81y^{2} + 144xy\) and x = 11, y = \(\frac{4}{3}\)

we know that, \((a + b)^{2} = a^{2} + 2ab + b^{2}\)

\(64x^{2} + 81y^{2} + 144xy\) = \((8x + 9y)^{2}\)

=> \(64x^{2} + 81y^{2} + 144xy\) = \((8(11) + 9(\frac{4}{3}))^{2}\)

=> \(64x^{2} + 81y^{2} + 144xy\) = \((88 + 12)^{2}\)

=> \(64x^{2} + 81y^{2} + 144xy\) = \((100)^{2}\)

=> \(64x^{2} + 81y^{2} + 144xy\) = \(10000\)

(iii) \(81x^{2} + 16y^{2}  – 72xy\) when x = \(\frac{2}{3}\)

 and y = \(\frac{3}{4}\)

sol:

Given that, \(81x^{2} + 16y^{2}  – 72xy\) and x = \(\frac{2}{3}\),

y = \(\frac{3}{4}\)

we know that, \((a – b)^{2} = a^{2} – 2ab + b^{2}\)

\(81x^{2} + 16y^{2}  – 72xy\) = \((9x – 4y)^{2}\)

=> \(81x^{2} + 16y^{2}  – 72xy\) = \((9(\frac{2}{3}) – 4(\frac{3}{4}))^{2}\)

=> \(81x^{2} + 16y^{2}  – 72xy\) = \((6 – 3)^{2}\)

=> \(81x^{2} + 16y^{2}  – 72xy\) = \(3^{2}\)

=> \(81x^{2} + 16y^{2}  – 72xy\) = 9

Q14 If \(x + \frac{1}{x}\) = 9, find the value of \(x^{4} + \frac{1}{x^{4}}\)

sol:

Given,

\(x + \frac{1}{x}\) = 9

squaring on both sides

\((x + \frac{1}{x})^{2} = 9^{2}\)

=> \((x + \frac{1}{x})^{2} = 81\)

=> \(x^{2} + 2\times x\times \frac{1}{x} + (\frac{1}{x})^{2} = 81\)

=> \(x^{2} + 2 + \frac{1}{x^{2}} = 81\)

=> \(x^{2} + \frac{1}{x^{2}} = 81 – 2\)

=> \(x^{2} + \frac{1}{x^{2}} = 79\)

Again, squaring on both sides

\((x^{2} + \frac{1}{x^{2}})^{2} = (79)^{2}\)

=> \((x^{2} + \frac{1}{x^{2}})^{2} = 6241\)

=> \((x^{2})^{2} + 2\times (x^{2})\times (\frac{1}{x^{2}}) + (\frac{1}{x^{2}})^{2}\) = 6241

=> \(x^{4} + 2 + \frac{1}{x^{4}} = 6241\)

=> \(x^{4} + \frac{1}{x^{4}} = 6241 – 2\)

=> \(x^{4} + \frac{1}{x^{4}} = 6239\)

Q15 If \(x + \frac{1}{x}\) = 12, find the value of \(x – \frac{1}{x}\)

sol:

Given that,

\(x + \frac{1}{x}\) = 12

squaring on both sides

\((x + \frac{1}{x})^{2} = (12)^{2}\)

=> \((x + \frac{1}{x})^{2} = 144\)

=> \(x^{2} + 2\times x\times \frac{1}{x} + (\frac{1}{x})^{2} = 144\)

=> \(x^{2} + 2 + \frac{1}{x^{2}} = 144\)

=> \(x^{2} + \frac{1}{x^{2}} = 144 – 2\)

=> \(x^{2} + \frac{1}{x^{2}} = 142\)

Here,

\((x – \frac{1}{x})^{2} = x^{2} – 2\times x\times \frac{1}{x} + (\frac{1}{x})^{2}\)

= \(x^{2} – 2 + \frac{1}{x^{2}}\)

=> \((x – \frac{1}{x})^{2} = x^{2} – 2 + \frac{1}{x^{2}}\)

=> \((x – \frac{1}{x})^{2} = 142 – 2\)

=> \((x – \frac{1}{x})^{2} = 140\)

=> \(x – \frac{1}{x}= \pm \sqrt{40}\)

Q16 If 2x + 3y = 14 and 2x – 3y = 2, find the value of xy

Sol:

we know that, \((a + b) (a – b) = a^{2} – b^{2}\)

Given, 2x + 3y = 14 and 2x – 3y = 2

squaring (2x + 3y) and (2x – 3y) and then subtracting them, we get

\((2x + 3y)^{2} – (2x – 3y)^{2} = [(2x + 3y) + (2x – 3y)][(2x + 3y) – (2x – 3y)]\)

=> \((2x + 3y)^{2} – (2x – 3y)^{2} = 4x \times 6y\)

=> \((2x + 3y)^{2} – (2x – 3y)^{2} = 24xy\)

=> \((14)^{2} – (2)^{2} = 24xy\)

=> (14 + 2) (14 – 2) = 24xy

=> \(16\times 12 = 24xy\)

=> 24xy = 192

=>     xy = \(\frac{192}{8}\)

=>      xy = 8

hence, xy = 8

Q17 If \(x^{2} + y^{2} = 29\) and xy = 2, Find the value of

(i) x + y

sol

Given,

\(x^{2} + y^{2} = 29\) and xy = 2

squaring the (x + y)

\((x + y)^{2} = x^{2} + 2\times x\times y + y^{2}\)

=> \((x + y)^{2} = 29 + (2\times 2)\)

=> \((x + y)^{2} = 29 + 4\)

=> \((x + y)^{2} = 33\)

=> \(x + y = \pm \sqrt{33}\)

(ii) x – y

sol:

Given,

\(x^{2} + y^{2} = 29\) and xy = 2

squaring the (x – y)

\((x – y)^{2} = x^{2} – 2\times x\times y + y^{2}\)

=> \((x – y)^{2} = 29 – (2\times 2)\)

=> \((x – y)^{2} = 29 – 4\)

=> \((x – y)^{2} = 25\)

=> \(x – y = \pm \sqrt{25}\)

=> \(x + y = \pm 5\)

(iii) \(x^{4} + y^{4}\)

Sol:

Given,

\(x^{2} + y^{2} = 29\) and xy = 2

\((x^{2} + y^{2})^{2} = x^{4} + 2x^{2}y^{2} + y^{4}\)

=> \(x^{4} + y^{4} = (x^{2} + y^{2})^{2} – 2x^{2}y^{2}\)

=> \(x^{4} + y^{4} = (x^{2} + y^{2})^{2} – 2(xy)^{2}\)

=> \(x^{4} + y^{4} = (29)^{2} – 2(2)^{2}\)

=> \(x^{4} + y^{4} = 841 – 8\)

=> \(x^{4} + y^{4} = 833\)
