(A) 1

(B) 3.5

(C) 6

(D) 3

Solution

Putting x = 1 in equation

ax^{2} + ax + 3 = 0

⇒ a(1)^{2} + a(1) + 3 = 0

⇒ a + a + 3 = 0

⇒ 2a = – 3

⇒ a = \(\frac { -3 }{ 2 }\)

and putting x = 1 in equation

x^{2} + x + b = 0

⇒ (1)^{2} + (1) + b = 0

⇒ 1 + 1 + b = 0

⇒ b = -2

ab = \(\frac { -3 }{ 2 }\) × -2 = 3

Hence, option (D) is correct.

Solution

Comparing 3√3x^{2} + 10x + √3 by ax^{2} + bx + c = 0,

a = √3, b = 10 and c = √3

Discriminant(D) = b^{2} – 4ac

= (10)^{2} – 4 × 3√3 × √3

= 100 – 4 × 3 × 3

= 100 – 36

= 64

Hence, option (B) is correct.

Miscellaneous Exercise Class 10 Question 14.

Find zeros of quadratic (RBSESolutions.com) equation 2x^{2} – 8x + 6 and test the relationship between zeros and coefficient.

Solution

Given polynamial

f(x) = 2x^{2} – 8x + 6

= 2x^{2} – 6x – 2x + 6

= 2x(x – 3) – 2(x – 3)

= (x – 3) (2x – 2)

To find zeros of polynomial f(x), f(x) = 0.

⇒ f(x) = 0

⇒ (x – 3)(2x – 2) = 0

⇒ x – 3 = 0 or 2x – 2 = 0

⇒ x – 3 or x = 1

Zeros of polynomial 2x^{2} – 8x + 6 are 1 and 3.

Relation between zeros and coefficient:

Sum of zeros = 1 + 3 = 4

Product of zeros = 1 × 3 = 3

comparing (RBSESolutions.com) polynomial by ax^{2} + bx + c = 0

a = 2, b = -8, c = 6

Thus there is a relationship between zeros and coefficient.

Given x^{4} – 6x^{3} + 16x^{2} – 25x + 10 divided by x^{2} – 2x + k obtained remainder is x + a

RBSE Solutions For Class 10 Maths Chapter 12 Miscellaneous Question 17.

The area of a rectangular (RBSESolutions.com) plot is 528 m^{2}. Length of a plot (in m) is 1 more than twice of breadth. By forming quadratic equation, find the length and breadth of the plot.

Solution

Let breadth of a plot is x m.

According to question,

Length of plot = (2 × breadth) + l = (2 × x + 1) = (2x + 1) m.

Area of rectangular plot = l × b = (2x + 1) × x = (2x^{2} + x) sq. m.

Given : Area of plot = 528 sq. m.

2x^{2} + x = 528

⇒ 2x^{2} + x – 528 = 0

Required quadratic (RBSESolutions.com) equation is :

2x^{2} + x – 528 = 0

⇒ 2x^{2} + 33x – 32x – 528 = 0

⇒ x(2x + 33) – 16(2x + 33) = 0

⇒ (2x + 33) (x – 16) = 0

⇒ x – 16 = 0 or 2x + 33 = 0

⇒ x = 16 or x = \(\frac { –33 }{ 2 }\) (impossible)

Hence, Length of plot is 2x + 1 = 2 × 16 + 1 = 33 m

and breadth is 16 m.

Exercise 3.5 Class 10 RBSE Question 18.

Solve quadratic (RBSESolutions.com) equation x^{2} + 4x – 5 = 0 by completing the square method.

Solution

Given quadratic equation

x^{2} + 4x – 5 = 0

⇒ x^{2} + 4x = 5

Adding square of half of coefficient of x on both sides

x^{2} + 2 × 2x + (2)^{2} = 5 + (2)^{2}

⇒ (x + 2)^{2} = 5 + 4

⇒ (x + 2)^{2} = 9

⇒ x + 2 = ±√9

⇒ x + 2 = ± 3

Taking + ve sign x = 3 – 2 = 1

Taking – ve sign x = -3 – 2 = – 5

Hence, solution of given quadratic equation are 1 and – 5.

RBSE Solutions For Class 10 Maths Chapter 3 Miscellaneous Question 19.

Solve the following (RBSESolutions.com) equations by factorisation method.

Solution

RBSE Class 10 Maths Chapter 4 Miscellaneous Solutions Question 20.

If -5 is a root of quadratic (RBSESolutions.com) equation 2x^{2} + px – 15 = 0 and roots of quadratic equation p(x^{2} + x) + k = 0 are same, then find k.

Solution

Given

One root of quadratic equation 2x^{2} + px – 15 = 0 is -5.

2(-5)^{2} + p(-5) – 15 = 0

⇒ 2 × 25 – 5p – 15 = 0

⇒ 50 – 5p – 15 = 0

⇒ 5p = 35

⇒ p = 7

Putting this value in (RBSESolutions.com) quadratic equation p(x^{2} + x) + k = 0

7 (x^{2} + x) + k = 0

⇒ 7x^{2} + 7x + k = 0

Comparing by ax^{2} + bx + c = 0

a = 7, b = 7 c = k

root of equation are equal

Discriminant (D) = 0

⇒ b^{2} – 4ac = (7)^{2} – 4 × 7 × k

⇒ 0 = 49 – 28k

⇒ 28k = 49

⇒ k = \(\frac { 49 }{ 28 }\)

Thus, k = \(\frac { 7 }{ 4 }\)

Chapter 3 Maths Class 10 Question 21.

Using, Shridhar Acharya (RBSESolutions.com) formula, solve the following quadratic equations : p^{2}x^{2} + (p^{2} – q^{2}) x – q^{2} = 0

Solution

Given equation p^{2}x^{2} + (p^{2} – q^{2}) x – q^{2} = 0

Comparing by ax^{2} + bx + c = 0, we get

a = p^{2}, b = (p^{2} – q^{2}) and c = -q^{2}

By Shridhar Acharya formula

Class 10 Maths Chapter 3 Question 22.

L.C.M. and H.C.F. of two quadratic (RBSESolutions.com) expression are respectively x^{3} – 7x + 6 and (x – 1). Find the expression.

Solution

Least common multipile (L.C.M.) = x^{3} – 7x + 6

Highest common factor (H.C.F.) = (x – 1)

Factorising expression x^{3} – 7x + 6

putting x = 1 in this expression, we get = (1)^{3} – 7(1) + 6 = 1 – 7 + 6 = 0

At x = 0, expression = 0

(x – 1) is a factor

(x^{3} – 7x + 6)

= (x – 1) (x^{2} + x – 6)

= (x – 1) [x^{2} + 3x – 2x – 6]

= (x – 1)[x(x + 3) – 2(x + 3)]

= (x – 1)(x + 3)(x – 2)

Now L.C.M. = (x – 1) (x – 2) (x + 3)

and H.C.F. = (x – 1)

factror (x – 1) will be (RBSESolutions.com) common in two expressions

first expression = (x – 1) (x – 2) = x^{2} – 3x + 2

and second expression = (x – 1)(x + 3) = x^{2} + 2x – 3

Miscellaneous Exercise 3 Class 10 Question 23.

L.C.M. of two polynomials is x^{3} – 6x^{2} + 3x + 10 and H.C.F. is (x + 1) if one polynomial is x^{2} – 4x – 5, then find the other.

Solution

L.C.M. = x^{3} – 6x^{2} + 3x + 10

H.C.F. = (x + 1)

Putting x = 1 in x^{3} – 6x^{2} + 3x + 10

x = 1 putting

= (1)^{3} – 6(1)^{2} + 3(1) + 10

= 1 – 6 + 3 + 10 ≠ 0

putting x = -1

= (-1)^{3} – 6(-1)^{2} + 3(-1) + 10

= -1 – 6 – 3 + 10 = 0

at x = – 1, expression = 0

(x + 1) is a factor of expression
