Q:

If A + B = 2C and C + D = 2A, then

A) A + C = B + D B) A + C = 2D
C) A + D = B + C D) A + C = 2B
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) A + C = B + D

Explanation:

Given,

 

A + B = 2C ----(i)

 

C + D = 2A----(ii)

 

Adding (i) and (ii) we get : A + B + C + D = 2C + 2A  

=>  B + D = A + C

Q:

Given interchanges : 

Signs + and - , numbers 4 and 8.

A) 4 + 8 - 12 = 12 B) 4 - 8 + 12 = 0
C) 8 + 4 - 12 = 24 D) 8 - 4 + 12 = 8
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 4 - 8 + 12 = 0

Explanation:

 On interchanging + and - and 4 and 8 in (b),

we get the equation as

8 + 4 - 12 = 0 
or 12 - 12 = 0
or 0 = 0, which is true.

Q:

Find the quadratic equations whose roots are the reciprocals of the roots of 2x2+5x+3?

A)  3x2+5x+2=0   

B) 5x2+3x+2=0 

C) 3x2-5x-2=0   

D)  None



A) A B) B
C) C D) D
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) A

Explanation:

The quadratic equation whose roots are reciprocal of 2x2+5x+3=0 can be obtained by replacing x by 1/x.

 

Hence, 2(1/x)(1/x)+ 5(1/x) + 3 = 0

 

=> 3x2+5x+2=0
