Question 1: Which of the following are quadratic equations in x?

  1. x2 – x + 3 = 0
  2. 2x2 +  5/2 x – √3 = 0
  3. √2x2 + 7x + 5√2 = 0
  4. 1/3x2 + 1/5x – 2 = 0
  5. x2 – 3x – √x + 4 = 0
  6. x – 6/x = 3
  7. x + 2/x = x2
  8. x^2 – 1/x^2 = 5
  9. (x + 2)^3 = x^3 – 8
  10. (2x + 3)(3x + 2) = 6(x – 1)(x – 2)
  11. (x + 1/x)^2 = 2)x + 1/x) + 3

Solution:

A quadratic equation is an equation of the second degree.

(i) x2 – x + 3 = 0

Highest Degree: 2

Quadratic equation.

(ii) 2x2 + 5/2x – √3 = 0

Highest Degree: 2

Quadratic equation.

(iii) √2x2+7x+5√2=0

Highest Degree: 2

Quadratic equation.

(iv) 1/3x2 + 1/5x – 2 = 0

Above equation can be simplify as: 5x2 + 3x – 2 = 0

Highest Degree: 2

Quadratic equation.

(v) x2 – 3x – √x + 4 = 0

Equation has a fractional power.

Not a quadratic equation.

(vi) x – 6/x = 3

Simply as x2 – 3x – 6 = 0

Degree : 2

Quadratic equation.

(vii) x + 2/x = x2

Simplify above equation:

x3 – x2 – 2 = 0

Degree: 3

Not a quadratic equation.

(viii) x^2 – 1/x^2 = 5

Simplify above equation

x4   – 1 = 5 x2

or x4-5x2-1 =0

Degree: 4

Not a quadratic equation.

(ix) (x + 2)^3 = x^3 – 8

x^3 + 8 + 6x^2 + 12x = x^3 – 8

-6x^2 + 12x + 16 = 0

Degree = 2

A quadratic equation.

(x) (2x + 3)(3x + 2) = 6(x – 1)(x – 2)

Simplify above equation:

6x^2 + 4x + 9x + 6 = 6x^2 – 12x – 6x + 12

31x – 6 = 0

Degree : 1

Not a quadratic equation

(xi) (x + 1/x)^2 = 2)x + 1/x) + 3

Simplify above equation:

(x^4 + 2x^2 + 1) / x^2 = (2x^2 + 2) / x + 3

(x^4 + 2x^2 + 1)x = x^2(2x^2 + 2) + 3

Not a quadratic equation.

Answer: (i), (ii), (iii), (iv), (vi) and (ix) are only quadratic equations.

Question 2:

Which of the following are the roots of 3x² + 2x – 1=0?

(i) -1

(ii) 1/3

(iii) -1/2

Solution:

Simplify given equation:

3x² + 2x – 1 = 3x² + 3x – x – 1

= 3x (x + 1) – 1 (x + 1)

= (x + 1) (3x – 1)

To find roots, put 3x² + 2x – 1 = 0

Either, x + 1 = 0 or 3x – 1 =0

x = -1 or x = 1/3

Therefore, (-1) and 1/3 are the required roots.

Question 3:

(i) Find the value of k for which x = 1 is a root of the equation x² + kx + 3 = 0. Also, find the other root.

(ii) Find the values of a and 6 for which x = 3/4 and x = -2 are the roots of the equation ax² + bx – 6 = 0.

Solution:

(i) x = 1 is a solution of x^2+kx+3=0, which means it must satisfy the equation.

(1)^2 + k(1) + 3 = 0

k = -4

Hence the required value of k = -4

Find other root:

We have equation, x^2 – 4x + 3 = 0

x^2 – x – 3x + 3 = 0

x(x – 1) – 3(x – 1) = 0

(x – 1)(x – 3) = 0

either x – 1 = 0 or x – 3 = 3

x = 1 or x = 3

Other root is 3.

(ii) given equation is ax² + bx – 6 = 0

As ¾ is its root, then must satisfy the equation

a(3/4)² + b(3/4) – 6 = 0

9a +12b – 96 = 0 ….(1)

Again, x = -2 is its root

a(-2)² + b(-2) – 6 = 0

4a – 2b – 6 = 0 …(2)

Solving (1) and (2), we get

a = 4 and b = 5
