6).I. 5x2 โ 18x + 9 =0
II.          20y2โ 13y + 2=0

7).I. 3/โx + 4/โx = โx

1)a   2)b   3)b   4)b   5)b   6)a   7)e   8)c   9)e   10)d

Solutions:
1).(17 + 2โ7)2 = 17 ร 17 + 2 โ7 ร 2 โ7+2 ร17 ร 2 โ7
= 289 + 28 + 68โ7
= 317 + 68โ7
So a = 317 , b = 68

2).a3-1 = (a – 1)(a2+a+1)
a3+1 = (a + 1)(a2-a+1)
also, note, (a2-a+1) = (a+1)2 โ (a+1)+1
Numerator = (2 – 1)(22+2+1). (3-1)(32+3+1)โฆโฆโฆ (1000-1)
(10002+1000+1)
Denominator = (2+1)(22-2+1). (3+1)(32-3+1)โฆโฆโฆ (1000+1)
(10002-1000+1)
Note that: (22+2+1) = (32-3+1), (32+3+1) = (42-4+1),and so-on
So the required value = 2ร(10002+1000+1) / (1000ร1001ร3) = 0.66
The given value is closest to 0.65.

3).P = (7/2) รท (5/2) ร (3/2) = (7/2) ร (2/5) ร(3/2)= 21/10
Q = (7/2) รท (5/2) of  (3/2) = (7/2) รท (5/2 ร 3/2)= (7/2) ร (4/15) = 14/ 15
P/Q = (21/20)/(14/15) = (21 ร 15)/(10ร14) = 9/4
5.25 = 21/4
Required value = (9/ 4)/ (21/4) = 3/7

4).Consider the first term:
Numerator = 2nร 24โ 2nร 2 = 2nร 14
Denominator = (2)2n+3 = 2nร 16
So, the first term becomes (14 ร 2n)/ (16 ร 2n) = 14/16 = 7/8
Now, 2-3 = 1/8
So the required value  = 7/8 + 1/8 = 1

5).(3 + 4 โ 3 + 2) + ((3+30) รท 11)) ร (3+6) รท 9
= (6 + 3) ร 1 = 9

6).Consider equation I:
5x2โ 18 + 9 = 0
5x2โ 15x -3x + 9 = 0
5x(x-3) โ 3(x-3) = 0
(x-3) (5x-3) = 0
X = 3 or 3/5
Consider equation II:
20y2โ 13y +2 = 0
20y2โ 8y -5y + 2 = 0
4y(5y-2) โ 1(5y-2) = 0
(5y โ 2) (4y โ 1) = 0
Y = 2/5 or 1/5
Hence, x> y

7).Consider equation I:
7/โx = โx or x = 7
Consider equation II:
Y3*โy โ 77/2= 0
Y7/2= 77/2
Y = 7
Hence, x = y

8).Consider equation I:
9x โ 5.45 = 54.55 + 4x
5x = 60
X = 12
Consider equation II:
โ(y+155) = 6 + 7 = 13
Y + 155 = 169
Y = 14
Hence,  x< y

9).Consider equation I:
x2+ x โ 20 =0
x2+ 5x -4x -20 = 0
x(x + 5) โ 4(x+5) = 0
(x + 5)(x โ 4) = 0
X = -5 or 4
Consider equation II:
Y2โ y โ 30 = 0
y2โ 6y + 5y โ 30 = 0
y(y – 6) + 5(y โ 6) = 0
(y-6)(y+5) = 0
Y = 6 or -5
We can have y = 6 and x =4ร here x
We can have x = 4, y = -5ร here x>y
So we cant determine the relationship

10).Consider equation I:
X2โ 365 = 364
X= 365 + 364 = 729
X = ยฑ27
Consider equation II:
Y = 18 + 9 = 27
So, x โค y
