Algebra: Quadratic Equations Test-5

Congratulations - you have completed Algebra: Quadratic Equations Test-5. You scored %%SCORE%% out of %%TOTAL%%. You correct answer percentage: %%PERCENTAGE%% . Your performance has been rated as %%RATING%%
 Question 1
The product of the present ages of Sarita and Gauri is 320. Eight years from now, Sarita's age will be three times the age of Gauri. What was the age of Sarita when Gauri was born?
 A 40 yr B 32 yr C 48 yr D 36 yr
Question 1 Explanation:
Let the age of Sarita be s years and Gauri be g years.
sg=320,
s+8=3(g+8)
s+8=3g+24
=>s-3g=16,sg=320
Solving the equation we can get ,
g=8 and s=40
Thus the age of Sarita when Gauri was born is 40-8=32 years.
 Question 2
In a class, the number of girls is one less than the number of the boys. If the product of the number of boys and that of girls is 272, then the number of girls in the class is
 A 15 B 14 C 16 D 17
Question 2 Explanation:
Let the number of girls be g and the number of boys be b.
g=b-1
gb=272
Solving the equation or by using options we can find that
g=16 and b=17.
Correct options is (c).
 Question 3
If you subtract Rs.1 from the money Bholu has, take its reciprocal, then add it to the square of the money and subtract the money Bholu has, you get two rupees more than the reciprocal of money after subtracting 1 from it. Find the money Bholu has.
 A Rs.7 B Rs.5 C Rs.10 D None of these
Question 3 Explanation:
Let the amount with Bholu be Rs. b.
$\begin{array}{l}\frac{1}{b-1}+{{b}^{2}}-b=2+\frac{1}{b-1}\\=>b(b-1)=2\\=>b=2\end{array}$
 Question 4
A class decided to have a party for their class at a total cost of Rs.720. Four students decided to stay out of the party. To meet the expenses the remaining students have to increase their share by Rs.9. What is the original cost per student?
 A Rs.18, B Rs.24 C Rs.36 D Rs.20
Question 4 Explanation:
Let the number of students = s and the amount paid by each be r.
sr=720
and (s-4)(y+9)=720
Solving the two equations,
s=20 and r=36.
Thus the original cost per student is Rs. 36.
The correct option is (c).
 Question 5
$\displaystyle Given\,\,\,\,\frac{\left( \sqrt{x+4}+\sqrt{x-10} \right)}{\sqrt{x+4}-\sqrt{x-10}}=\frac{5}{2},$
The value of x is
 A 1 B 331/5 C 263/20 D 17/21
Question 5 Explanation:
$\displaystyle Given\,\,\,\,\frac{\left( \sqrt{x+4}+\sqrt{x-10} \right)}{\sqrt{x+4}-\sqrt{x-10}}=\frac{5}{2},$
$\begin{array}{l}\frac{\left( \sqrt{x+4}+\sqrt{x-10} \right)}{\sqrt{x+4}-\sqrt{x-10}}=\frac{5}{2},\\=>2\left( \sqrt{x+4}+\sqrt{x-10} \right)=5\left( \sqrt{x+4}-\sqrt{x-10} \right)\\=>2\sqrt{x+4}+2\sqrt{x-10}=5\sqrt{x+4}-5\sqrt{x-10}\\=>7\sqrt{x-10}=3\sqrt{x+4}\\=>49(x-10)=9(x+4)\\=>49x-490=9x+36\\=>40x=526\\=>x=\frac{526}{40}=\frac{263}{20}\end{array}$
