⇒ 2A = 351

⇒ A = 175.5 rupee per kg

Let respective amounts of these tea were x kg, x kg and 2x kg.

∴ 126x + 135x + 2Ax = 153 × 4x

⇒ 2A = 351

⇒ A = 175.5 rupee per kg

**Directions (11-15): In the following questions, two equations in x and y are given. Solve these equations and give answer**

**Q11. I. 2x+3y=14**

**II. 4x+2y=16**

if x>y

if x≥y

if x≤y

x=y or relation cannot be established between x and y

Solution:

I. 2x + 3y = 14

II. 2x + y = 8

Solving I and II,

we get x = 2.5, y = 3

y > x

II. 2x + y = 8

Solving I and II,

we get x = 2.5, y = 3

y > x

**Q12. I. 6x²+77x+121=0**

**II. y²+9y-22=0**

if x>y

if x≥y

if x≤y

x=y or relation cannot be established between x and y

**Q13. I. 6x²+41x+63=0**

**II. 12y²+55y+63=0**

if x>y

if x≥y

if x≤y

x=y or relation cannot be established between x and y

**Q14. I. 4x²+11x+6=0**

**II. 2y²+11y+15=0**

if x>y

if x≥y

if x≤y

x=y or relation cannot be established between x and y

**Q15. I. 10x²-7x+1=0**
