Directions (1-5):

I) x = ∛46656 ÷ 12

X = 36/12 = 3

II) y2 + 14y – 51 = 0

(y + 17) (y – 3) = 0

Y = -17, 3

X ≥ y

I) 3x2 – 20x + 33 = 0

3x2 – 9x – 11x + 33 = 0

3x(x – 3) – 11 (x – 3) = 0

(3x – 11) (x – 3) = 0

X = 11/3, 3 = 3.66, 3

II) 2y2 – 3y – 27 = 0

2y2 + 6y – 9y – 27 = 0

2y(y + 3) – 9(y + 3) = 0

(2y – 9) (y + 3) = 0

Y = 9/2, -3 = 4.5, -3

Can’t be determined

5x – 3y = 19 –> (1)

3x + 2y = 0 –> (2)

By solving the equation (1) and (2), we get,

X = 2, y = -3

X > y

I) x2 + x – 72 = 0

(x + 9) (x – 8) = 0

X = -9, 8

II) y2 – 6y – 135 = 0

(y – 15) (y + 9) = 0

Y = 15, -9

Can’t be determined

I) 2x2 -11x +12 = 0

2x2 – 8x – 3x + 12 = 0

2x(x – 4) – 3(x – 4) = 0

(2x – 3) (x – 4) = 0

X= 3/2, 4

II) 9y2 + 21y + 10 = 0

9y2 + 6y +15y +10 = 0

3y (3y + 2) + 5(3y + 2) = 0

(3y + 5) (3y + 2) = 0

Y= -5/3, -2/3

X > Y

Directions (6-10):

The total Sun silk shampoo sold in rural areas

= > 25*(2/5) = 10 lakhs

The total Dove shampoo sold in urban areas
