Q:

(P - 4)(P - 6)

Simplify the above?

Answer

(P - 4)(P - 6)


 


Now applying distributive property, we get


 


P.P - 4.P - 6.P + 6.4


 


P^2 - 10P + 24

Q:

Solve this inequality 3p - 16 < 20?

A) p >= 12 B) p <= 11/3
C) p < 12 D) p > 11/3
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) p < 12

Explanation:

The given inequality is 3p - 16 < 20

For solving this inequality, follow these steps

Now add 16 on both sides

we get 3p - 16 + 16 < 20 + 16

=> 3p  < 36

Now divide the above eqn with 3 on both sides

we get, 3p/3 < 36/3

p < 12.

Q:

The areas of three consecutive faces of a cuboid are 12 cm², 20cm² and 15 cm², then the volume (in cm³) of the cuboid is

A) 60 B) 55
C) 45 D) 40
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 60

Explanation:

From the given data,

let the length, breadth and height of the cuboid are m, n, r

m x n = 12

n x r = 20

r x m = 15

 

Hence, m x n x n x r x r x m = 12 x 20 x 15

mnr = sqrt of (12x20x15) = 60 cub.cm.
