(d)

**(E) The value of p for which the quadratic equation x(x – 4) + p = 0 has real and distinct roots, is:**

(a) p < 4 (b) p > 4

(c) p < -4 (d) p > -4

## Solution:

**(A) Answer (c) x² – 14x + 33 = 0**

**Explanation: **Radius of one circle = x cm.

and the radius of second circle = (14 – x) cm

The area of first circle = π x² cm²

The area of the second circle = π(14 – x)² cm²

According to the question,

π x² + π(14 – x)² = 130 π

⇒ π(x² + 196 + x² – 28x) = 130π

⇒ 2x² – 28 x + 196 = 130

⇒ 2x² – 28 x + 196 – 130 = 0

⇒ 2x² – 28 x + 66 = 0

⇒ x² – 14 x + 33 = 0 ….(i)

**(B) Answer (a) 3 cm and 11 cm**

**Explanation:** Solving equation (i)

x² – 14 x + 33 = 0

⇒ x² – 11 x – 3 x + 33 = 0

⇒ x(x – 11) – 3(x – 11) = 0

⇒ (x – 11)(x – 3) = 0

⇒ x = 3, 11

Radius of one circle = 3 cm

Radius of second circle = 11 cm

**(C) Answer (b) Real and distinct**

**Explanation: **Given quadratic equation

abx² + (b² – ac)x – bc = 0

A = ab, B = b² – ac, C = – bc

Discrimnant (D) = B² – 4AC

= (b² – ac)² – 4(ab).(-bc)

The square of every integer is always positive

Hence, roots of the equation is Real and Distinct

**(D) Answer (d)**

**Explanation: a²x² – 3abx + 2b² = 0**

⇒ a²x² – 2abx – abx + 2b² = 0

⇒ ax(ax – 2bx) -b(ax – 2b) = 0

⇒ (ax – 2b)(ax – b) = 0

**(E) Answer (a) p < 4**

**Explanation: **The given quadratic equation

x(x – 4) + p = 0

⇒ x² – 4x + p =0

Roots of the equation is Real and distinct

Then, D > 0

b² – 4ac > 0

⇒ (-4)² – 4×1×p > 0

⇒ 16 – 4p > 0

⇒ 16 > 4p

**⇒ p < 4**

** The speed of a motor boat is 20 km/h. For covering the distance of 15 km, the boat took 1 hour more for upstream than downstream.**

**(A) Let speed of the stream be x km/h. Then speed of the motor boat in upstream will be:**

(a) 20 km/h (b) (20 + x) km/h

(c) (20 – x) km/h (d) 2 km/h

**(B) What is the relation between speed, distance and time ?**

(a) Speed = (distance)/time

(b) distance = (speed)/time

(c) time = speed × distance

(d) speed = distance × time

**(C) Which is the correct quadratic equation for the speed of the current ?**

(a) x² + 30 x – 200 = 0

(b) x² + 20 x – 400 = 0

(c) x² + 30 x – 400 = 0

(d) x² – 20 x – 400 = 0

**(D) What is the speed of current ?**

(a) 20 km/h (b) 10 km/h

(c) 15 km/h (d) 25 km/h

**(E) How much time boat took in down-stream ?**

(a) 90 minutes (b) 15 minutes

(c) 30 minutes (d) 45 minutes

## Solution:

**(A) Answer (c) (20 – x) km/h**

**Explanation: Speed of motor boat = 20km/h**

Let the speed of stream = x km/h

Hence, speed of boat in upstream = (20 – x) km/h

**(B) Answer (a) Speed = Distance/Time**

**(C) Answer (c) x² + 30 x – 400 = 0**

**Explanation:** Let the speed of stream = x km/h

speed of boat in upstream = (20 – x) km/h

Speed of boat in down-stream = (20 + x) km/h

According to the question

**(D) Answer (b) 10 km/h**

**Explanation:** Solving the quadratic equation x² + 30 x – 400 = 0

⇒ x² +40x – 10x – 400 =0$

⇒ x(x + 40) – 10(x + 40) = 0

⇒ (x + 40)(x – 10) = 0

⇒ x = 10, -40

Speed can not be negative

**Hence, speed of the stream = 10 km/h**

**(E) Answer (c) 30 minutes**

**Explanation: **Speed of boat in down-stream = (x + 20) km/h

= (10 + 20) = 30 km/h

Time taken in down-stream = Distance/speed

= 15/30 = 1/2 hour

= 30 minutes
