3x2Â + 30x + 63 = 0

3x2Â + 21x + 9x + 63 = 0

3x(x + 7) + 9(x + 7) = 0

(3x + 9)(x + 7) = 0

x = -3, -7

y2Â â€“ 4y â€“ 21 = 0

y2Â â€“ 7y + 3y â€“ 21 = 0

y(y â€“ 7) + 3(y â€“ 7) = 0

(y â€“ 7)(y + 3) = 0

y = 7, -3

x â‰¤ y

x2Â â€“ 33x + 162 = 0

x2Â â€“ 27x â€“ 6x + 162 = 0

x(x â€“ 27) â€“ 6(x â€“ 27) = 0

(x â€“ 6)(x â€“ 27) = 0

x = 6, 27

y2Â â€“ 30y + 144=0

y2Â â€“ 24y â€“ 6y + 144=0

y(yÂ  – 24) â€“ 6(y â€“ 24)=0

(y â€“ 6)(y â€“ 24)=0

y = 6, 24

Relationship between x and y cannot be established.

x2Â + 23x + 130=0

x2Â + 13x + 10x + 130=0

x(x + 13) + 10(x + 13)=0

(x + 10)(x + 13)=0

x = -10, -13

2y2Â + 32y + 120=0

2y2Â + 20y + 12y + 120=0

2y(y + 10) + 12(y + 10)=0

(2y + 6)(y + 10)=0

y = -3, -10

x â‰¤ y

x2Â â€“ 17x + 52=0

x2Â â€“ 13x â€“ 4x + 52=0

x(x â€“ 13) â€“ 4(x â€“ 13)=0

x2Â + 15x â€“ 184=0

x2Â + 23x â€“ 8x â€“ 184=0

x(x + 23) â€“ 8(x + 23)=0

(x â€“ 8)(x + 23)=0

x = 8, -23

y2Â â€“ 30y + 176=0

y2Â â€“ 22y â€“ 8y + 176=0

y(y â€“ 22) â€“ 8(y â€“ 22)=0

(y â€“ 8)(y â€“ 22)=0

y = 8, 22

x â‰¤ y

CP = x

MP/CP = 6/5

MP = 6/5 * x

SP = 6/5 * x * 90/100 = 27x/25

Profit percentage = ((27x/25) â€“ x) / x * 100

= 8%

Slanting height of the cone = âˆšh2Â + r2Â = âˆš242Â + 72

= 25 cm

CSA of Cone = 22/7 * r * l

TSA of the cylinder = 2 * 22/7 * r * (h + r)

Required ratio = 22/7 * 7 * 25 : 2 * 22/7 * 7 * (18 + 7)

= 1: 2

A = 1/24

B = 1/16

LCM of (16, 24) = 48

A complete the work in one day = 2 units

B complete the work in one day = 3 units

They work together in 6 days = 6 * (2 + 3) = 30 units of work completed

Remaining work = 48 â€“ 30 = 18 units

A alone complete the remaining = 18/2 = 9 days

Profit ratio of A and B = 4 * 10: 5 * 6

= 4:3

Aâ€™s profit share = 4/7 * 17500 = 10000

(3x + 9)/(7x + 9) = 15/29

105x + 135 = 87x + 261

18x = 126

x = 7

Sam = 3 * 7 = 21 years

Ram = 7 * 7 = 49 years

Shon = 49 â€“ 21 = 28 years

Sum of Sam and Shon age = 21 + 28 = 49 years
