Activity 3: (Textbook p. no. 32)

Decide which of the following are quadratic equations?
i. 9y2 + 5 = 0
Solution:
In the equation 9y2 + 5 = 0, y is the only variable and maximum index of the variable is 2.
∴ It is a quadratic equation.

ii. m3 – 5m2 + 4 = 0
Solution:

In the equation m3 – 5m2 + 4 = 0, m is the only variable and maximum index of the variable is not 2.
∴ It is not a quadratic equation.

iii. (l + 2)(l – 5) = 0

iv. x + 1/x = -2
v. (m + 2) (m – 5) = 03
vi. m3 + 3m2 – 2 = 3m3

Solution:
i. The given equation is x2 + 5x – 2 = 0
Here, x is the only variable and maximum index of the variable is 2.
a = 1, b = 5, c = -2 are real numbers and a ≠ 0.
∴ The given equation is a quadratic equation.

iii. The given equation is
y2 + 1/y = 2
∴ y3 + 1 = 2y …[Multiplying both sides by y]
∴ y3 – 2y + 1 = 0
Here, y is the only variable and maximum index of the variable is not 2.
∴ The given equation is not a quadratic equation.

v. The given equation is
(m + 2) (m – 5) = 0
∴ m(m – 5) + 2(m – 5) = 0
∴ m2 – 5m + 2m – 10 = 0
∴ m2 – 3m – 10 = 0
Here, m is the only variable and maximum index of the variable is 2.
a = 1, b = -3, c = -10 are real numbers and a ≠ 0.
∴ The given equation is a quadratic equation.

vi. The given equation is
m3 + 3m2 – 2 = 3m3
∴ 3m3 – m3 – 3m2 + 2 = 0
∴ 2m3 – 3m2 + 2 = 0
Here, m is the only variable and maximum
index of the variable is not 2.
∴ The given equation is not a quadratic equation.

3. Write the following equations in the form ax2 + bx + c = 0, then write the values of a, b, c for each equation.
i. 2y = 10 – y2
ii. (x – 1)2 = 2x + 3
iii. x2 + 5x = – (3 – x)
iv. 3m2 = 2m2 – 9
v. P (3 + 6p) = – 5
vi. x2 – 9 = 13
Solution:
i. 2y – 10 – y2
∴ y2 + 2y – 10 = 0
Comparing the above equation with
ay2 + by + c = 0, we get
a = 1, b = 2, c = -10

ii. (x – 1)2 = 2x + 3
∴ x2 – 2x + 12x + 3
x– 2x + 1 – 2x – 30
∴ x2 – 4x – 2 = 0
Comparing the above equation with
ax2 + bx + c = 0, we get
a = 1, b = -4, c = -2

iii. x2 + 5x = – (3 – x)
∴ x2 + 5x = -3 + x
∴ x2 + 5x – x + 3 = 0
∴ x2 + 4x + 3 = 0
Comparing the above equation with
ax2 + bx + c = 0, we get
a = 1, b = 4, c = 3

iv. 3m2 = 2m2 – 9
∴ 3m2 – 2m2 + 9 = 0
∴ m2 + 9 = 0
∴ m2 + 0m + 9 = 0
Comparing the above equation with
am2 + bm + c = 0, we get
a = 1, b = 0, c = 9

v. p (3 + 6p) = – 5
∴ 3p + 6p2 = -5
∴ 6p2 + 3p + 5 = 0
Comparing the above equation with
ap2 + bp + c = 0, we get
a = 6, b = 3, c = 5

vi. x2 – 9 = 13
∴ x2 – 9 – 13 = 0
∴ x2 – 22 = 0
∴ x2 + 0x – 22 = 0
Comparing the above equation with
ax2 + bx + c = 0, we get
a = 1, b = 0, c = -22

4. Determine whether the values given against each of the quadratic equation are the roots of the equation.
i. x2 + 4x – 5 = 0; x = 1,-1
ii. 2m2 – 5m = 0; m = 2, 5/2
Solution:
i. The given equation is
x2 + 4x – 5 = 0 …(i)
Putting x = 1 in L.H.S. of equation (i), we get
L.H.S. = (1)2 + 4(1) – 5 = 1 + 4 – 5 = 0
∴ L.H.S. = R.H.S.
∴ x = 1 is the root of the given quadratic equation.
Putting x = -1 in L.H.S. of equation (i), we get
L.H.S. = (-1)2 + 4(-1) – 5 = 1 – 4 – 5 = -8
∴ LH.S. ≠ R.H.S.
∴ x = -1 ¡s not the root of the given quadratic equation.

ii. The given equation is
2m2 – 5m = 0 …(i)
Putting m = 2 in L.H.S. of equation (i), we get
L.H.S. = 2(2)2 – 5(2) = 2(4) -10 = 8 – 10 = -2
∴ L.H.S. ≠ R.H.S.
∴ m = 2 is not the root of the given quadratic equation.
Putting m = 5/2 in L.H.S. of equation (i), we get

L.H.S. = 2 (5/2)2 – 5 ( 5/2)

= 2 (25/4) – 25/2

= 25/2 – 25/2

= 0

∴ L.H.S. = R.H.S.

∴ m = 5/2 is the root of the given quadratic equation.

5. Find k if x = 3 is a root of equation kx2 – 10x + 3 = 0.
Solution:
x = 3 is the root of the equation kx2 – 10x + 3 = 0.
Putting x = 3 in the given equation, we get
k(3)2 – 10(3) + 3 = 0
∴ 9k – 30 +3 = 0
∴ 9k – 27 = 0
∴ 9k = 27
∴ k = 27/ 9
∴ k = 3

6. One of the roots of equation 5m2 + 2m + k = 0 is −7/5 Complete the following activity to find the value of ‘k’.
Solution:

– 7/5 is a root of quadratic equation

5m2 + 2m + k = 0

∴ put m= -7/5 in the equation

∴ 5 x ( -7/5)2 + 2 x -7/5 + k = 0

∴ 49/5 – 14/5 K = 0

∴ 7 + k = 0

∴ k = -7
