Question 1 Explanation:

$ \displaystyle \begin{array}{l}Equating\,\,\,\,2+{{x}^{2}}=6-3x\\\Rightarrow \,\,\,{{x}^{2}}+3x-4=0\Rightarrow {{x}^{2}}+4x-x-4=0\\or\,\,\,\left( x+4 \right)\,\left( x-1 \right)=0\\\Rightarrow \,x=-4\,\,\,or\,\,\,1\\But\,\,\,x>0\,\,\,so\,\,\,x=1,\,\,\,so\,\,\,LHS=RHS=2+1=3\end{array}$

Therefore we can conclude that the largest value of the function when x>0 occurs at x=1.

The value of y for x=1 is 3. Therefore option (c).

Therefore we can conclude that the largest value of the function when x>0 occurs at x=1.

The value of y for x=1 is 3. Therefore option (c).

Question 4 |

The following functions have been defined:

$ \displaystyle \begin{array}{l}la\,\,\left( x,y,z \right)\,=\min \,\left( x+y,y+z \right)\\le\,\,\left( x,y,z \right)\,=\max \,\left( x-y,y-z \right)\\ma\,\,\left( x,y,z \right)\,=\left( 1/2 \right)\,\left[ le\,\left( x,y,z \right)+la\,\left( x,y,z \right) \right]\end{array}$

Given that $ \displaystyle x>y>z>0$

Which of the following is necessarily true?

$ \displaystyle \begin{array}{l}la\,\,\left( x,y,z \right)\,=\min \,\left( x+y,y+z \right)\\le\,\,\left( x,y,z \right)\,=\max \,\left( x-y,y-z \right)\\ma\,\,\left( x,y,z \right)\,=\left( 1/2 \right)\,\left[ le\,\left( x,y,z \right)+la\,\left( x,y,z \right) \right]\end{array}$

$ \displaystyle ma\,\left( x,y,z \right)<\,la\,\left( x,y,z \right)$ | |

$ \displaystyle ma\,\left( x,y,z \right)<\,le\,\left( x,y,z \right)$ | |

None of these |

Question 4 Explanation:

Taking values as x= 40, y =30, z=2.

la(x,y,z)= min (70,32) =32

le(x,y,z)=max (10,28)=28

ma(x,y,z)=1/2[32+28]=1/2[60]=30

Options (a) and (c) can be easily eliminated by taking random value of x and y (close and very much larger than z).

Taking values as x= 100, y =2, z=1.

la(x,y,z)= min (102,3) =3

le(x,y,z)=max (98,1)=98

ma(x,y,z)=1/2[3+98]=1/2[101]=55.5

Here when we take a >> b>c we find that

ma(x,y,z) > la(x,y,z)= min (102,3) =3

la(x,y,z)= min (70,32) =32

le(x,y,z)=max (10,28)=28

ma(x,y,z)=1/2[32+28]=1/2[60]=30

Options (a) and (c) can be easily eliminated by taking random value of x and y (close and very much larger than z).

Taking values as x= 100, y =2, z=1.

la(x,y,z)= min (102,3) =3

le(x,y,z)=max (98,1)=98

ma(x,y,z)=1/2[3+98]=1/2[101]=55.5

Here when we take a >> b>c we find that

ma(x,y,z) > la(x,y,z)= min (102,3) =3

The following functions have been defined:
$ \displaystyle \begin{array}{l}la\,\,\left( x,y,z \right)\,=\min \,\left( x+y,y+z \right)\\le\,\,\left( x,y,z \right)\,=\max \,\left( x-y,y-z \right)\\ma\,\,\left( x,y,z \right)\,=\left( 1/2 \right)\,\left[ le\,\left( x,y,z \right)+la\,\left( x,y,z \right) \right]\end{array}$

Question 5 Explanation:

=$\displaystyle ma\,\left( 10,\,4,\,le\,(\,\min \,\left( 15,8 \right),5,3) \right)$

=

=

=

=1/2 [{la (10,4,3)}+(le (10,4,3)}]

=1/2 [{min (14,7)}+(max(6,1)}]

=1/2 [7+6]

=6.5

=

*ma*(10,4, max (8-5,5-3))=

*ma*(10,4, max (3,2))=

*ma*(10,4,3)=1/2 [{la (10,4,3)}+(le (10,4,3)}]

=1/2 [{min (14,7)}+(max(6,1)}]

=1/2 [7+6]

=6.5
