Q) The graph of the polynomial – ax²+bx+c is shown below. Write the signs of ‘a’ and ‘b² – 4ac’. Ans: Clearly, f(x) = ax² + bx + c represent a parabola opening upwards. Therefore, a>0 Since, the parabola cuts the x-axis at two points, this means that the polynomial will have two real solutions. Hence, […]

Q) Find the value of m for which the quadratic equation (m + 1) y2 – 6(m+1) y + 3(m+9) = 0, m ≠ -1 has equal roots. Hence find the roots of the equation. Ans: Given quadratic equation is: (m + 1) y2 – 6(m+1) y + 3(m+9) = 0 If we compare to ax2

Q) If 𝛼, β are zeroes of quadratic polynomial x2 – 2x + 3, find the polynomial whose roots are:1. 𝛼 + 2, 𝛽 + 22. Ans: Given polynomial equation x2 – 2x + 3 = 0 Comparing with standard polynomial, ax2 + b x + c = 0, we get, a = 1, b =

Q) Two water taps together can fill a tank in 9 hours. The tap of larger diameter takes 10 hours less than the smaller one to fill the tank separately. Find the time (in hrs) which each tap can separately fill the tank. Ans: VIDEO SOLUTION STEP BY STEP SOLUTION It is given that,Time taken

Q) A motor boat whose speed is 18 km/h in still water takes 1 hour more to go 24 km upstream than to return downstream to the same spot. Find the speed of the stream. Ans: It is given that, Speed of motor boat = 18 km/hrDistance travelled =24 kmTime taken to travel in upstream is

Q) If 𝛼, β are zeroes of quadratic polynomial 5×2 + 5x + 1, find the value of1. 𝛼2 + 𝛽22. 𝛼‾1 + 𝛽‾1 Ans: Given polynomial equation 5×2 + 5x + 1 = 0 The roots of the polynomial be α and β. We know that sum of roots (α + β) = α + β

Q) In a pool at an aquarium, a dolphin jumps out of the water travelling at 20 cm per second. Its height above water level after t seconds is given by: h = 20t – 16t2. Based on the above, answer the following questions:(i) Find zeroes of polynomial p(t) = 20t – 16t².(ii) Which of

Q) Find the value of ‘p’ for which one root of the quadratic equation px2 – 14x + 8 = 0 is 6 times the other. Ans: Let one the roots be then by the given condition, other root is 6 We know that sum of roots (α + β) = Sum of roots
