(a) 12

(b) 144

(c) 72

(d) 6

9) Which of the following equations has equal roots?

(a) x2 – 13x + 22 = 0

(b) x2 – 7x + 10 = 0

(c) x2 – 2x + 26 = 0

(d) 4x2 + 8x + 4 = 0

10)  The point P(5,-2) divides the segment joining the points (x,0) and (0,y) in the ratio 2:5. What is the value of x and y?

(a) x = -7; y = 7

(b) x = 3; y = -3

(c) x = 7; y = -7

(d) x = -3; y = 3

General formula,  ATQ,

π (r²) × 25 = 3850

r² = 49

r = 7 cm   From Euler’s Formula

Vertices – Edges + Faces = 2

Vertices – 30 + 12 = 2

Vertices = 20

(x + y)² = x² + y² + 2xy

(x + y)² = 100 + 2 × 22

(x + y)² = 144

x + y = √144 = 12

Go by options,

Only Eqn. [4x² + 8x + 4 = 0] has equal roots.
