Solutions:
1). e)
I. 6x2 + 77x + 121 = 0
or, 6x + 66x + 11x + 121 = 0
or, 6x(x + 11) + 11(x + 11) = 0
or, (6x + 11) (x + 11) = 0
or, x = – 11/6
II. y2 + 9y – 22 = 0
or, y + 11y – 2y – 22 = 0
or, y(y + 11) – 2(y + 11)
or, (y – 2) (y + 11) = 0
or, y = 2, –11
Hence, no relationship can be established between x and y.

2). a)
I. x2 – 24x + 144 = 0
or, x2 – 12x – 12x + 144 = 0
or, x(x – 12) – 12(x – 12) = 0
or, (x – 12)2 = 0
x = 12
II. y2 – 26y + 169 = 0
or, y2 – 13y – 13y + 169 = 0
or, y(y – 13) – 13(y – 13) = 0
or, (y – 13)2 = 0
y = 13
Hence, x < y

3). b)
I. x2 – 6x = 7
or, x2 – 6x – 7 = 0
or, x2 – 7x + x – 7 = 0
or, x(x – 7) + 1(x – 7) = 0
or, (x + 1) (x – 7) = 0
or, x = –1, 7
II. 2y2 + 13y + 15 = 0
or, 2y2 + 10y + 3y + 15 = 0
or, 2y(y + 5) + 3(y + 5) = 0
or, (2y + 3) (y + 5) = 0
or, y = – 3/2, –5
Hence, x > y

4). d)
I. 2y2 + 3x – 20 = 0
or, 2x2 + 8x – 5x – 20 = 0
or, 2x(x + 4) – 5(x + 4) = 0
or, (2x – 5) (x + 4) = 0
or, x = 5/2, –4
II. 2y2 + 19y + 44 = 0
or, 2y2 + 11y + 8y + 44 = 0
or, 2y(2y + 11) + 4(2y + 11) = 0
or, (y + 4) (2y + 11) = 0
y = –4, – 11/2
Hence, x ≥ y

5). d)
I. 10x2 – 7x + 1 = 0
or, 10x2 – 5x – 2x + 1 = 0
or, 5x(2x – 1) – 1(2x – 1) = 0
or, (5x – 1) (2x – 1) = 0
or, x = 1/5, ½
II. 35y2 – 12y + 1 = 0
or, 35y2 – 7y + 5y + 1 = 0
or, 7y(5y – 1) – 1(5y – 1) = 0
or, (7y – 1) (5y – 1) = 0
or, y = 1/7, 1/5
Hence, x ≥ y
