**Directions (11-15): In each of the following questions two equations are given. You have to solve the equations and Give answer —**

**Q11. I. 9x² – 36x + 35 = 0**

**II. 2y² – 15y – 17 = 0**

if x < y

if x ≤ y

relationship between x and y cannot be determined

if x ≥ y

if x > y

Solution:

I. 9x² - 36x + 35 = 0

⇒ 9x² - 21x – 15x + 35 = 0

⇒ 3x (3x – 7) -5 (3x – 7) = 0

⇒ (3x- 7) (3x – 5) = 0

⇒ x=5/3,7/3

II. 2y² – 15y – 17 = 0

⇒ 2y² - 17y + 2y – 17 = 0

⇒ (y + 1) (2y – 17) = 0

⇒ y= -1, 17/2

No relation

⇒ 9x² - 21x – 15x + 35 = 0

⇒ 3x (3x – 7) -5 (3x – 7) = 0

⇒ (3x- 7) (3x – 5) = 0

⇒ x=5/3,7/3

II. 2y² – 15y – 17 = 0

⇒ 2y² - 17y + 2y – 17 = 0

⇒ (y + 1) (2y – 17) = 0

⇒ y= -1, 17/2

No relation

**Q12. I. 2x² – 7x + 3 = 0**

**II. 2y² – 7y + 6 = 0**

if x < y

if x ≤ y

relationship between x and y cannot be determined

if x ≥ y

if x > y

Solution:

I. 2x² - 7x + 3 = 0

⇒ 2x² - 6x – x +3 = 0

⇒ (x – 3) (2x – 1) = 0

⇒ x = 3, 1/2,

II. 2y² - 7y +6 = 0

⇒ 2y² - 4y – 3y + 6 = 0

⇒ (y – 2) (2y – 3) = 0

⇒ y = 2, 3/2

No relation

⇒ 2x² - 6x – x +3 = 0

⇒ (x – 3) (2x – 1) = 0

⇒ x = 3, 1/2,

II. 2y² - 7y +6 = 0

⇒ 2y² - 4y – 3y + 6 = 0

⇒ (y – 2) (2y – 3) = 0

⇒ y = 2, 3/2

No relation

**Q13. I. 4x² + 16x + 15 = 0**

**II. 2y² + 3y + 1 = 0**

if x < y

if x ≤ y

relationship between x and y cannot be determined

if x ≥ y

if x > y

Solution:

I. 4x² + 16x + 15 = 0

⇒ 4x² + 10x + 6x + 15 = 0

⇒ 2x (2x + 5) + 3 (2x + 5) = 0

⇒ (2x + 5) (2x + 3) = 0

⇒ x= -5/2, -3/2

II. 2y² + 3y + 1 = 0

⇒ 2y² + 2y + y + 1 = 0

⇒ (y + 1) (2y + 1) = 0

⇒ y = -1, -1/2

y > x

⇒ 4x² + 10x + 6x + 15 = 0

⇒ 2x (2x + 5) + 3 (2x + 5) = 0

⇒ (2x + 5) (2x + 3) = 0

⇒ x= -5/2, -3/2

II. 2y² + 3y + 1 = 0

⇒ 2y² + 2y + y + 1 = 0

⇒ (y + 1) (2y + 1) = 0

⇒ y = -1, -1/2

y > x

**Q14. I. 9x² – 45x + 56 = 0**

**II. 4y² – 17y + 18 = 0**

if x < y

if x ≤ y

relationship between x and y cannot be determined

if x ≥ y

if x > y

Solution:

I. 9x² - 45x + 56 = 0

⇒ 9x² - 24x – 21x + 56 = 0

⇒ 3x (3x – 8) – 7 (3x – 8) = 0

⇒ (3x – 8) (3x – 7) = 0

⇒ x = 8/3, 7/3

II. 4y² - 17y + 18 = 0

⇒ 4y² - 8y – 9y + 18 = 0

⇒ (y – 2) (4y – 9) = 0

⇒ y = 2, 9/4

x>y

⇒ 9x² - 24x – 21x + 56 = 0

⇒ 3x (3x – 8) – 7 (3x – 8) = 0

⇒ (3x – 8) (3x – 7) = 0

⇒ x = 8/3, 7/3

II. 4y² - 17y + 18 = 0

⇒ 4y² - 8y – 9y + 18 = 0

⇒ (y – 2) (4y – 9) = 0

⇒ y = 2, 9/4

x>y

**Q15. I. 2x² + 11x + 14 = 0**

**II. 2y² + 15y + 28 = 0**

if x < y

if x ≤ y

relationship between x and y cannot be determined

if x ≥ y

if x > y

Solution:

I. 2x² + 11x + 14 = 0

⇒ 2x² + 4x + 7x + 14= 0

⇒ (x + 2) (2x + 7) = 0

⇒ x = -2, -7/2

II. 2y² + 15y + 28= 0

⇒ 2y² + 8y + 7y + 28 = 0

⇒ (y + 4) (2y + 7) = 0

⇒ y = -4, -7/2

⇒ x ≥ y

⇒ 2x² + 4x + 7x + 14= 0

⇒ (x + 2) (2x + 7) = 0
