Can’t be determined

I) 3x2 + 23x + 44 = 0

3x2 + 12x + 11x + 44 = 0

3x (x + 4) + 11 (x + 4) = 0

Y = 14/3, 3 = 4.66, 3

X > y

Direction (6-10) :

Let, the number of white balls in bag A = n

Total number of balls in bag A = 5 + 6 + 7 + n = 18 + n

6/(18 + n) = 3/10

=> 60 = 54 + 3n

=> 3n = 60 – 54

=> 3n = 6

=> n = 2

Total number of balls in bag A = 18 + 2 = 20

Probability of drawing 2 green balls from bag A = 7c2/20c2

= (7 x 6)/(20 x 19)

= 21/190

Let, the number of red balls in bag B = x

And number of green balls in bag B = y

Total number of balls in bag B = 4 + 3 + x + y = (7 + x + y)

y/(7 + x + y) = 1/3

=> 3y = 7 + x + y

=>x – 2y = -7 —— (i)

4/(7 + x + y) = 2/9

=> 36 = 14 + 2x + 2y

=> 2x + 2y = 22

=> x + y = 11 —— (ii)

Equation (ii) – equation (i)

x + y – x + 2y = 11 + 7

=> 3y = 18

=> y = 6

Putting the value of y in equation (ii)

x + 6 = 11

=> x = 11 – 6

=> x = 5

Total number of balls in bag B = 7 + 5 + 6 = 18

Probability of drawing 2 red balls from bag B = 5c2/18c2

= (5 x 4)/(18 x 17)

= 10/153

Required product = 21/190 x 10/153 = 7/969

Let the number of blue balls in bag C = n

Total number of balls in bag C = (4 + 6 + 8 + n) = 18 + n

n/(18 + n) = 1/7

=> 7n = n + 18

=> 7n – n = 18

=> 6n = 18

=> n = 3

Total number of balls in bag C = 18 + 3 = 21

Probability of drawing 2 green balls from bag C = 6c2/21c2

= (6 x 5)/(21 x 20)

= 1/14

Let, the number of blue balls in bag D = x

And number of white balls in bag D = y

Total number of balls in bag D = 7 + 5 + x + y = 12 + x + y

x/(12 + x + y) = 1/9

=> 9x = 12 + x + y

=> 8x – y = 12 —— (i)

5/(12 + x + y) = 5/18

=> 90 = 60 + 5x + 5y

=> 5x + 5y = 30

=> x + y = 6 —– (ii)

8x – y + x + y = 12 + 6

=> 9x = 18

=> x = 2

Putting the value of x in equation (ii)

2 + y = 6

=> y = 6 – 2

=> y = 4

Total number of balls in bag D = 12 + 2 + 4 = 18

Probability of drawing 2 white balls from bag D = 4c2/18c2

= (4 x 3)/(18 x 17)

= 2/51

Required ratio = 1/14: 2/51 = 51:28

Let the number of blue balls in bag E = n

Total number of balls in bag E = 4 + 3 + 5 + n = 12 + n

5/(12 + n) = 1/3

=> 15 = 12 + n

=> n = 3

Total number of balls in bag E = 12 + 3 = 15

Probability of drawing one green ball from bag E = 3/15 = 1/5

Let the number of green balls in bag F = x

And number of white balls in bag F = y

Total number of balls in bag F = 3 + 5 + x + y = 8 + x + y

x/(8 + x + y) = 2/9

=> 9x = 16 + 2x + 2y

=> 7x – 2y = 16 —– (i)

3/(8 + x + y) = 1/6

=> 18 = 8 + x + y

=> x + y = 10 —— (ii)

Equation (i) – 7 x equation (ii)

7x – 2y – 7x – 7y = 16 – 70

=> -9y = -54

=> y = 6

Putting the value of y in equation (ii)

x + 6 = 10

=> x = 4

Total number of balls in bag F = 8 + 4 + 6 = 18

Probability of drawing one blue ball from bag F = 5/18

Required percentage = (1/5)/(5/18) x 100

= 1/5 x 18/5 x 100

= 18/25 x 100

= 72%

Let, the number of blue balls in bag H = x

And number of white balls in bag H = y

Total number of balls in bag H = 8 + 4 + x + y = 12 + x + y

8/(12 + x + y) = 2/5

=> 40 = 24 + 2x + 2y

=> 2x + 2y = 40 – 24

=> 2x + 2y = 16

=> x + y = 8

4/(12 + x + y) = 1/5

=> 20 = 12 + x + y

=> x + y = 8

Hence, required value cannot be find out.

Let, the number of red balls in bag G = n

Total number of balls in bag G = 6 + 3 + 2 + n = 11 + n

3/(11 + n) = 1/5

=> 15 = 11 + n

=> n = 4

Total number of balls in bag G = 11 + 4 = 15

Probability of drawing two blue balls from bag G = 6c2/15c2

= (6 x 5)/(15 x 14)

= 1/7

Let, the number of blue balls in bag H = x

And number of white balls in bag H = y

Total number of balls in bag H = 8 + 4 + x + y = 12 + x + y

y/(12 + x + y) = ¼

=> 4y = 12 + x + y

=>x – 3y = -12 —— (i)

4/(12 + x + y) = 1/5

=> 20 = 12 + x + y

=> x + y = 8 —– (ii)

Equation (i) – equation (ii)

x – 3y – x – y = – 12 – 8

=> -4y = – 20

=> y = 5

Putting the value of y in equation (i)

x – 15 = -12

=> x = 15 – 12

=> x = 3

Total number of balls in the bag = 12 + 3 + 5 = 20

Probability of drawing 2 green balls from bag H = 4c2/20c2

= (4 x 3)/(20 x 19)

= 3/95

Required sum = 1/7 + 3/95

= (95 + 21)/665

= 116/665
