Directions (Q. 6-10): In each of these questions two equations (I) and (II) are given. You have to solve both the equations and give answer

1. if x > y
2. if x â‰¥ y
3. if x < y
4. if x â‰¤ y
5. if x = y or no relation can be established between x and y

1. I. x^2 â€“ 82x + 781 = 0 II. y^2 = 5041

1. I. 6x^2 â€“ 17x + 12 = 0 II. 7y^2 â€“ 13y + 6 = 0

1. I. 6x^2 â€“ 47x + 80 = 0 II. 2y^2 â€“ 9y + 10 = 0

1. I. 2x^2 + x â€“ 1 = 0 II. 2y^2 + 13y + 15 = 0

1. I. x^2 + 12x + 32 = 0 II. 2y^2 + 15y + 27 = 0

1. 8 bag + 5 box = 25 Ã— 13 = 325

4 bag + 7 box = 21 Ã— 11 = 231

12 bag + 12 box = 556

Total cost of 18 bags and 18 boxes

= 556 Ã— 3 / 2

= 834

1. Let Harish age = x

Then

Harish brother’s age = x + 3

Harish mother’s age = x + 26

Harish sister’s age = (x + 3) + 4 = x + 7

Harish Father’s age = (x + 7) + 28 = x + 35

Age Harish father when Harish brother was born = x + 35 â€“ (x + 3) = 32

1. Volume of cuboid = volume of two cubes together

36 Ã— 18 Ã— 3 = a^3 + 8a^3

a^3 = 216

a = 6 cm

Surface area of the smaller cube = 6 Ã— 6^2

= 216 cm^2

Â

1. Work done by X in 1 hour = 1/8

Work done by Y in 1 hour = 1/10

Work done by Z in 1 hour = 1/12

Work done by X,Y and Z in 1 hour = 1/8 + 1/10 + 1/12 = 37/120

Work done by Y and Z in 1 hour = 1/10 + 1/12 = 22/120 = 11/60

From 9 am to 11 am, all the machines were operating.

Ie, they all operated for 2 hours and work completed = 2 Ã— (37/120) = 37/60

Pending work = 1- 37/60 = 23/60

Hours taken by Y an Z to complete the pending work = (23/60) / (11/60) = 23/11

This is approximately equal to 2

Hence the work will be completed approximately 2 hours after 11 am ; ie around 1 pm

1. Total number of balls = 4 + 8 + 12 = 24

n(s) = 24C3 = 2024

Number of ways to select one ball of each colour

= n (E) = 4C1 Ã— 8C1 Ã— 12C1 = 4 Ã— 8 Ã— 12 = 384

P (E) = 384 / 2024

= 48 / 253
