Directions: In each of these questions, two equations numbered I and II with variables x and y are given. You have to solve both the equations to find the value of x and y. Give answer:
1) if x > y
2) if x >= y
3) if x < y
4) if x <= y
5) if x = y or relationship between x and y cannot be determined.

3.
I. 2x^2 + 13x + 20 = 0
II. 2y^2 – 3y – 35 = 0

4.
I. 12x^2 – 41x + 35 = 0
II. 4y^2 – 17y +15 = 0

I. 2x^2 + 8x + 5x + 20 = 0
(2x + 5) (x + 4) = 0  x = -5/2,– 4

II. 2y^2 – 10y + 7y – 35 = 0
(2y + 7) (y – 5) = 0  y = -7/2, 5

Relationship between x and y does not exist.

4. 5;
I. 12x^2 – 20x – 21x + 35 = 0
(4x –7) (3x – 5) = 0
x = 7/4, 5/3
II. 4y^2 – 12y – 5y + 15 = 0  (4y – 5) (y – 3) = 0
y = 5/4, 3
Relationship between x and y does not exist

5.5;
I. 4(x^2 – 1) = 60
x^2 – 1 = 15
x = +/- 4

II. 3(y^2 + 1) = 51
y^2 + 1 = 17
y = +/- 4
Hence x = y

6. 2;
I. 28x^2 – 21x + 12x – 9 = 0
(7x + 3) (4x – 3) = 0
x = -3/7, 3/4

II. 7y^2 + 21y + 3y + 9 = 0
(7y + 3) (y + 3) = 0
y = -3/7,–3

7. 1
16 * 5/2 = 40
40 * 5/2 = 250
250 * 5/2 = 625 not equal to 630

Hence there should be 625 in place of 7630

8. 4:
The series is:
21 × 2 – 1 = 41 not equal to 48
41 × 4 – 2 = 162
162 × 6 – 3 = 969
969 × 8 – 4 = 7748
Hence, there should 41 in place of 48.

9. 3;
The series is:
118 + (11)^2 = 239
239 – (12)^2 = 95 not equal to 96
95 + (13)^2 = 264
264 – (14)^2 = 68
68 + (15)^2 = 293
Hence there should be 95 in place of 96.

10. 5
The series is
128 * 5/2 = 320
320 * 7/2 = 1120
1120 * 9/2 = 5040
5040 * 11/2 = 27720
27720 * 13/2 = 180180 not equal to 180190
