Directions (6-10): Two equations (I) and (II) are given in each question. On the basis of these equations, you have to decide the relation between x and y and give answer

Q6. I. 5x² - 87x + 378 = 0
II. 3y² - 49y + 200 = 0

if x > y
if x < y
if x ≥y
if x ≤y
if x = y, or no relation can be established between x and y.

Q7. I. 10x² - x - 24 = 0
II. y² - 2y = 0

if x > y
if x < y
if x ≥ y
if x ≤ y
if x = y, or no relation can be established between x and y.

Q8. I. x² - 5x + 6 = 0
II.2y² - 15y + 27 = 0

if x > y
if x < y
if x ≥ y
if x ≤ y
if x = y, or no relation can be established between x and y.

Q9. I. 3x + 2y = 301
II. 7x - 5y = 74

if x > y
if x < y
if x ≥y
if x ≤y
if x = y, or no relation can be established between x and y.
Solution:

I. 3x + 2y = 301
II. 7x – 5y = 74
Multiplying eq. (I) by ‘5’ and (II) by ‘2’ then adding
29x = 1653
⇒ x = 57 and y = 65
⇒ y > x

Q10. I. 14x² - 37x + 24 = 0
II. 28y² - 53y + 24 = 0

if x > y
if x < y
if x ≥ y
if x ≤ y
if x = y, or no relation can be established between x and y.
