Here, x is the only variable and maximum index of the variable is not 2.

∴ The given equation is not a quadratic equation.

iii. The given equation is

(x + 2)^{2} = 2x^{2}

∴ x^{2} + 4x + 4 = 2x^{2}

∴ 2x^{2} – x^{2} – 4x – 4 = 0

∴ x^{2} – 4x – 4 = 0

Here, x is the only variable and maximum index of the variable is 2.

a = 1, b = -4, c = —4 are real numbers and

a ≠ 0.

∴ The given equation is a quadratic equation.

and α × p = 10 × -10 = -100

∴ The required quadratic equation is

x

^{2}– (α + β)x + αβ = 0

∴ x

^{2}– 0x + (-100) = 0

∴ x

^{2}– 100 = 0

ii. Let α = 1 – 3 √5 and β = 1 + 3 √5

α + β = 1 – 3 √5 + 1 + 3 √5 = 2

and α × β = (1 – 3√5) (1 + 3 √5)

= (1)2 – (3√5)^{2}

= 1 – 45

= -44

∴ The required quadratic equation is

x^{2} – (α + β)x + αβ = 0

∴ x^{2} – 2x – 44 = 0

iii. Let α = 0 and β = 7

∴ α + β = 0 + 7 = 7

and α × β = 0 × 7 = 0

∴ The required quadratic equation is

= (-5)

^{2}-4 × 3 × 7

= 25 – 84

∴ ∆ = -59

∴ ∆ < 0

∴ Roots of the given quadratic equation are not real.

ii. √3 x^{2} + √2 x – 2 √3 = 0

Comparing the above equation with

ax^{2} + bx + c = 0, we get

a = √3 , b = √2, c = -2√3

∴ ∆ = b^{2} – 4ac

= (√2)^{2} – 4 × √3 × (-2√3)

= 2 + 24

∴ ∆ = 26

∴ ∆ > 0

∴ Roots of the given quadratic equation are real and unequal.

iii. m^{2} – 2m + 1 = 0

**Question 7.Solve the following quadratic equations.Solution:**

ii. x^{2} – 3×10 – 110 = 0

∴ 10x^{2} – 3x – 1 = 0

…[Multiplying both sides by 10]

∴ 10x^{2} – 5x + 2x – 1 = 0

∴ 5x(2x – 1) + 1(2x – 1) = 0

∴ (2x – 1)(5x + 1) = 0

By using the property, if the product of two numbers is zero, then at least one of them is zero, we get

∴2x – 1 = 0 or 5x + 1 = 0

∴2x = 1 or 5x = -1

iii. (2x + 3)^{2} = 25

∴ (2x + 3)^{2} – 25 = 0

∴ (2x + 3)^{2} – (5)^{2} = 0

∴ (2x + 3 – 5) (2x + 3 + 5) = 0 ….. [∵ a^{2} – b^{2} = (a – b) (a + b)]

∴ (2x – 2) (2x + 8) = 0

By using the property, if the product of two numbers is zero, then at least one of them is zero, we get

∴ 2x – 2 = 0 or 2x + 8 = 0

∴ 2x = 2 or 2x = -8

∴ x = 22 or x = −82

∴ x = 1 or x = -4

∴ The roots of the given quadratic equation are 1 and -4.

iv. m^{2} + 5m + 5 = 0

Comparing the above equation with

am^{2} + bm + c = 0, we get

a = 1, b = 5, c = 5

∴ b^{2} – 4ac = (5)^{2 }– 4 × 1 × 5

= 25 – 20 = 5

v. 5m^{2} + 2m+1 = 0

Comparing the above equation with

am^{2} + bm + c = 0, we get

a = 5, b = 2, c = 1

∴ b^{2} – 4ac = (2)^{2} -4 × 5 × 1

= 4 – 20

= -16

∴ b^{2} – 4ac < 0

∴ Roots of the given quadratic equation are not real.

vi. x^{2} – 4x – 3 = 0

Comparing the above equation with

ax^{2} + bx + c = 0, we get

a = 1, b = -4, c = -3

∴ b^{2} – 4ac = (-4)^{2} – 4 × 1 × -3

= 16 + 12

= 28

**Question 8.Find m, if (m – 12) x ^{2} + 2(m – 12) x + 2 = 0 has real and equal roots.Solution:**

(m – 12) x

^{2}+ 2(m – 12)x + 2 = 0

Comparing the above equation with

ax

^{2}+ bx + c = 0, we get

a = m – 12, b = 2(m – 12), c = 2

∴ ∆ = b

^{2}– 4ac

= [2(m -12)]

^{2}– 4 × (m – 12) × 2

= 4(m – 12)

^{2}– 8(m – 12)

= 4(m – 12) (m – 12 – 2)

∴ ∆ = 4(m – 12) (m – 14)

Since, the roots are real and equal.

∴ ∆ = 0

∴ 4(m – 12) (m – 14) = 0 (m – 12) (m – 14) = 0

By using the property, if the product of two numbers is zero, then at least one of them is zero, we get

∴ m – 12 = 0 or m – 14 = 0

∴ m = 12 or m = 14

But ,if m = 12, then quadratic coefficient becomes zero.

∴ m ≠ 12

∴m = 14

**Question 9.The sum of two roots of a quadratic equation is 5 and sum of their cubes is 35, find the equation.Solution:**

Let α and β be the roots of the quadratic equation.

According to the given conditions,

α + β = 5 and α

^{3}+ β

^{3}= 35

Now, (α + β)

^{3}= α

^{3}+ 3α

^{2}β + 3αβ

^{2}+ β3

∴ (α + β)

^{3}= α

^{3}+ β

^{3}+ 3αβ (α + β)

∴ (5)

^{3}= 35 + 3αβ(5)

∴ 125 = 35 + 15αβ

∴ 125 – 35 = 15αβ

∴ 15αβ = 90

∴ αβ =

∴ αβ = 6

∴ The required quadratic equation is

x

^{2}– (α + β)x + αβ = 0

∴ x

^{2}– 5x + 6 = 0

**Question 11.Mukund possesses ₹ 50 more than what Sagar possesses. The product of the amount they have is 15,000. Find the amount each one has.Solution:**

Let the amount Sagar possesses be ₹ x.

∴ the amount Mukund possesses = ₹ (x + 50)

According to the given condition,

x(x +50)= 15000

∴ x

^{2}+ 50x – 15000 = 0

∴ x

^{2 }+ 150x- 100x- 15000 = 0

∴ x(x + 150) – 100(x + 150) = 0

∴ (x + 150)(x – 100) = 0

By using the property, if the product of two numbers is zero, then at least one of them is zero, we get

∴ x + 150 = 0 or x – 100 = 0

∴ x = -150 or x = 100

But, amount cannot be negative.

∴ x= 100 and x + 50 = 100 + 50 = 150

∴ The amount possessed by Sagar and Mukund are ₹ 100 and ₹150 respectively.

**Question 12.The difference between squares of two numbers is 120. The square of smaller number is twice the greater number. Find the numbers.Solution:**

Let the numbers be x and y (x > y).

According to the given condition,

x

^{2}– y

^{2}= 120 …(i)

y

^{2}= 2x …(ii)

Substituting y

^{2}= 2x in equation (i), we get

x

^{2}– 2x = 120

∴ x

^{2}– 2x – 120 = 0

∴ x

^{2}– 12x + 10x – 120 = 0

∴ x(x – 12) + 10(x – 12) = 0

∴ (x – 12)(x + 10) = 0

By using the property, if the product of two numbers is zero, then at least one of them is zero, we get

∴ x – 12 = 0 or x + 10 = 0

∴ x = 12 or x = -10

But x ≠ -10

as, y

^{2}= 2x = 2(-10) = -20 …[Since, the square of number cannot be negative]

∴ x = 12

Smaller number = y

^{2}=2x

∴ y

^{2}= 2 × 12

∴ y

^{2}= 24

∴ y = ± √24 …[Taking square root of both sides]

∴ The smaller number is √24 and greater number is 12 or the smaller number is – √24 and greater number is 12.

**Question 13.Ranjana wants to distribute 540 oranges among some students. If 30 students were more each would get 3 oranges less. Find the number of students.Solution:**

According to the given condition,

∴ 30 × 540 = 3x

^{2}+ 90 x

∴ 3x

^{2}+ 90x= 16200

∴ x

^{2}+ 30x – 5400 = 0

…[Dividing both sides by 3]

∴ x

^{2}+ 90x – 60x – 5400 = 0

∴ x(x + 90) – 60(x + 90) = 0

∴ (x + 90) (x – 60) = 0

By using the property, if the product of two numbers is zero, then at least one of them is zero, we get

∴ x + 90 = 0 or x – 60 = 0

∴ x = – 90 or x = 60

But, number of students cannot be negative,

x = 60

∴ The total number of students is 60.

**Question 14.Mr. Dinesh owns an rectangular agricultural farm at village Talvel. The length of the farm is 10 metre more than twice the breadth. In order to harvest rain water, he dug a square shaped pond inside the farm. The side of pond is of the breadth of the farm. The area of the farm is 20 times the area of the pond. Find the length and breadth of the farm and side of the pond.Solution:**

Let the breadth of the rectangular farm be x m.

∴ Length of rectangular farm = (2x + 10) m

Area of rectangular farm = Length × Breadth

= (2x + 10) × x

= (2x

^{2}+ 10x) sq. m

According to the given condition,

Area of rectangular farm = 20 × Area of pond

By using the property, if the product of two numbers is zero, then at least one of them is zero, we get

∴ x = 0 or x – 45 = 0

x = 0 or x = 45

But, breadth of the rectangular farm cannot be zero,

∴ x = 45

Length of rectangular farm

= 2x + 10 = 2(45) + 10 = 100 m

∴ Length and breadth of the farm and the side of the pond are 100 m, 45 m and 15 m respectively.

**Question 15.A tank fills completely in 2 hours if both the taps are open. If only one of the taps is open at the given time, the smaller tap takes 3 hours more than the larger one to fill the tank. How much time does each tap take to fill the tank completely?Solution:**

According to the given condition,

∴ 2(2x + 3) = x(x + 3)

∴ 4x + 6 = x

^{2}+ 3x

∴ x

^{2}+ 3x – 4x – 6 = 0

∴ x

^{2}– x – 6 = 0

∴ x

^{2}– 3x + 2x – 6 = 0

∴ x(x – 3) + 2(x – 3) = 0

∴ (x – 3)(x + 2) = 0

By using the property, if the product of two numbers is zero, then at least one of them is zero, we get

∴ x – 3 = 0 or x + 2 = 0

∴ x = 3 or x = -2

But, time cannot be negative.

∴ x = 3 and x + 3 = 3 + 3 = 6

∴ The larger tap takes 3 hours and the smaller tap takes 6 hours to fill the tank completely.
