**Directions (6-10): Solve the following equations and mark the correct option given below.**

**Q6. I. 2x + 5y = 61**

**II. 3x + 4y = 60**

if x>y

if x≥y

if y>x

if y≥x

if x=y or no relation can be established

Solution:

I. 2x + 5y = 61

II. 3x + 4y = 60

On solving

I & II x = 8,

y = 9 y > x

**Q7. I. x² – 12x + 32 = 0**

**II. 2y² – 13y + 20 = 0**

if x>y

if x≥y

if y>x

if y≥x

if x=y or no relation can be established

Solution:

I. x² – 12x + 32 = 0

x² – 8x– 4x + 32 = 0

x (x - 8)-4 (x - 8) = 0

(x - 4) (x – 8) = 0

x= 4, 8

II. 2y² - 13y + 20 = 0

2y² - 8y – 5y + 20 = 0

2y (y - 4) – 5 (y - 4) = 0

(2y - 5) (y - 4) = 0

y=5/2, 4 x ≥ y

**Q8. I. 3x² – 4x – 20 = 0**

**II. 4y² + 21y + 27 = 0**

if x>y

if x≥y

if y>x

if y≥x

if x=y or no relation can be established

Solution:

I. 3x² - 4x – 20 = 0

3x² - 10x + 6x – 20 = 0

x (3x - 10) +2 (3x - 10) = 0

(x + 2) (3x - 10) = 0

x= -2, 10/3

II. 4y² + 21y + 27 = 0

4y² + 12y + 9y + 27 = 0

4y (y + 3) + 9 (y + 3) = 0

(4y + 9) (y + 3) = 0

y= -9/4, -3 x > y

**Q9. I. √((x-2)(x+3))=6**

**II. y² = 64**

if x>y

if x≥y

if y>x

if y≥x

if x=y or no relation can be established

Solution:

I.√((x-2)(x+3) )=6

x² - 2x + 3x – 6 = 36

x² + x- 42 = 0

x² + 7x – 6x – 42 = 0

x (x + 7) – 6 (x + 7) = 0

(x - 6) (x+ 7) = 0

x = 6, -7

II. y² = 64

y = ± 8

No relation established between x and y

**Q10. I. x² + 15x + 50 = 0 II. 2y² + 15y + 25 = 0**

if x>y

if x≥y

if y>x

if y≥x

if x=y or no relation can be established

Solution:

I. x² + 15x + 50 = 0

x² + 10x + 5x + 50 = 0

x (x + 10) + 5 (x + 10) = 0

(x + 5) (x + 10) = 0

x = -5, -10

II. 2y² + 15y + 25 = 0

2y² + 10y + 5y + 25 = 0

2y (y + 5) + 5 (y + 5) = 0

(2y + 5) (y + 5) = 0

y= -5/2, -5 y≥x

**Directions (11-15): Study the following graph carefully to answer the questions that follow: Number of students (In thousands) enrolled in three different districts in six different years**

**Q11. What was percentage increase in enrollment in the number of students in District-R in year 2013 as compared to that of the previous year?**

115.5%

112.5%

15.5%

12.5%

16.5%

**Q12. What was the difference between the number of students enrolled in all the three districts in the year 2014 together and the number of students enrolled in District-Q over all the years together?**

12,000

11,000

1,100

1,400

16,000

Solution:

Number of students enrolled in all the three districts in the year 2014

= (8 + 6 + 7)

= 21 thousand

Number of students enrolled in District-Q over all the years together

= (5 + 4 + 7 + 6 + 4 + 7)

= 33 thousand

∴ Required difference = (33 – 21)

= 12,000

**Q13. What was the average number of students enrolled in District-P from 2011 to 2015 together?**

8,600

5,800

4,800

58,000

5,600

Solution:

Average number of students enrolled in District-P over the years from 2011 to 2015 together =1/5×(3+5+6+8+7) thousand

=1/5×29000

=5,800

**Q14. In which year was the number of students enrolled in all the three districts together second highest?**

2011

2012

2014

2013

2016

Solution:

The highest number of students may be in year 2013 or 2014 from the graph.

∴ Students enrolled in 2013

= (6 + 7 + 9)

= 22 thousand

and students enrolled in 2014 = (8 + 6 + 7)

= 21 thousand

∴ second highest enrolled students are in 2014

**Q15. Total number of students enrolled in the District-P and District –Q together in the year 2016 was what percent of the total number of students enrolled in District-P in the year 2014?**

150

120

250

220

240

Solution:

Total number of students enrolled in the year 2016 from district-P and Q

= (5 + 7)

= 12 thousand

Number of students enrolled in District-P in 2014 = 8 thousands

Required percentage

= 12/8×100

= 3/2×100

= 150%
