**Answers & Solutions:**

**1) Answer (D)**

here in this question $\frac{\sqrt{a+2b}+\sqrt{a-2b}}{\sqrt{a+2b-}\sqrt{a-2b}}=\frac{\sqrt{3}}{1}$

using componendo and dividendo, we will get

$\frac{\sqrt(a+2b)}{\sqrt(a-2b)} = \frac{\sqrt3 + 1 }{\sqrt3 – 1}$

now on squaring both side and solving, we will get

16 b = 4a$\surd3$

$\frac{a}{b}$ = $\frac{4}{\surd3}$

**2) Answer (A)**

A point in the 4th quadrant will be in the form of $(x,-y)$

Since, the point is 6 units away from x axis, => y coordinate = 6

and the point is 7 units away from y axis, => x coordinate = 7

=> Point = (7,-6)

**3) Answer (D)**

Let the numbers be $a,b,c,d$

=> $a+b+c+d$ = 48 ——–Eqn(1)

When 5 & 1 are added to first two, => $(a+5) and (b+1)$

and when 3 & 7 are subtracted from last two, => $(c-3) and (d-7)$

According to question :

=> $a+5 = b+1 = c-3 = d-7 = k$ (let)

Now, in eqn(1)

$(a+5) + (b+1) + (c-3) + (d-7)$ = 48 + (5+1-3-7)

=> $k+k+k+k$ = 48-4

=> $k$ = 11

=> Numbers are : $a = k-5 = 11-5 = 6$

Similarly, $b$ = 10

$c$ = 14

$d$ = 18

**4) Answer (A)**

Equation : $3x + 4y = 12$

To find $x$-intercept, put $y$=0

=> $3x + 0 = 12$

=> $x$ = 4

Similarly to find $y$-intercept, we need to put $x$ = 0

=> $0 + 4y = 12$

=> $y$ = 3

Thus, the line passes through (4,0) in x-axis and (0,3) in y-axis

Using, $d = \sqrt{(x_2-x_1)^2+(y_2-y_1)^2}$

=> $x_1 = 0 , x_2 = 4 , y_1 = 0 , y_2 = 3$

=> $d = \sqrt{4^2 + 3^2}$

=> $d = \sqrt{25} = 5$

**5) Answer (B)**

when x = y = z= 332 , then $(x^2 + y^2 + z^2 – xy – yz – xz)$ = 0

and hence $x^3 + y^3 + z^3 – 3xyz$ = 0 as $x^3 + y^3 + z^3 – 3xyz$ = (x+y+z) $(x^2 + y^2 + z^2 – xy – yz – xz)$

and hence the answer for this question is = 0

**6) Answer (C)**

NOTE : – For the pair of equations : $a_1x + b_1y + c_1 = 0$ and $a_2x + b_2y + c_2 = 0$

The equations have no solution only if : $\frac{a_1}{a_2} = \frac{b_1}{b_2} \neq \frac{c_1}{c_2}$

Equations : $2x- ky + 7 = 0$ and $6x- 12y+ 15 = 0$

Comparing with above formula, we get :

=> $\frac{2}{6} = \frac{-k}{-12}$

=> $\frac{k}{12} = \frac{1}{3}$

=> $k = 4$

**7) Answer (A)**

Let the number be $x$

Acc to ques :

=> $x – \frac{2}{5}x = 75$

=> $\frac{3x}{5} = 75$

=> $x = 125$

**8) Answer (C)**

Given : $x^{3} + y^{3} = 72$ and $xy = 8$

Solution : $(x+y)^3 = x^3 + y^3 + 3xy(x+y)$

=> $(x+y)^3 = 72 + 3.8(x+y)$

=> $(x+y)^3 – 24(x+y) – 72 = 0$

This is a cubic equation in terms of $(x+y)$ which has one real root = 6

=> $x+y = 6$

Now, $(x-y)^2 = (x+y)^2 – 4xy$

=> $(x-y) = \sqrt{6^2 – 4*8} = \sqrt{4}$

=> $(x-y) = 2$

**9) Answer (D)**

Let the number be $x$

=> Other number will be $\frac{2x}{5}$

Acc to ques :

=> $x$ + $\frac{2x}{5}$ = 50

=> $7x$ = 250

=> $x$ = $\frac{250}{7}$

and second number = $\frac{2}{5} * \frac{250}{7} = \frac{100}{7}$

**10) Answer (B)**

Let the number be $x$

Acc to ques :

=> $\frac{3x}{4} = \frac{x}{6} + 7$

=> $\frac{14x}{24} = 7$

=> $x = 12$

=> $\frac{5}{3}$ of the number = $\frac{5}{3}$ * 12 = 20

**11) Answer (C)**

AC represents $x+y=3$

BC represents $2x+3y=6$

AB represents $x=0$

=> ABC is the required triangle.

Base AB = 1 unit and height OC = 3 units

=> Area of $\triangle$ABC = $\frac{1}{2}$ * AB * OC

= $\frac{1}{2}$ * 1 * 3 = 1$\frac{1}{2}$ sq. unit

**12) Answer (A)**

Clearly, the lines x = a and y = b meets at a point (a,b)

**13) Answer (D)**

Clearly, x=4 is a vertical line passing through (4,0) and y=3 is a horizontal line passing through the point (0,3)

The line 3x+ 4y= 12 also passes through (4,0) and (0,3) .

Hence, it is a right angled triangle with base=4 units and height=3 units.

The area of the triangle is = $\frac{1}{2}bh$

= $\frac{1}{2}\times4\times3$

=6 units

**14) Answer (A)**

3x + 4y = 0 —> (1)

x – 2y = 10

$(x – 2y = 10)\times2$

2x – 4y = 20 —> (2)

5x = 20

x = 4

y = -3

x + y = 1

**15) Answer (D)**

$2x+3y=\frac{11}{2}$

cubing on both sides

$(2x+3y)^{3}=(\frac{11}{2})^{3}$

$8x^{3}+27y^{3}+3(2x)(8y)(2x+3y)=\frac{1331}{8}$

$8x^{3}+27y^{3}+3(16xy)(2x+3y)=\frac{1331}{8}$

$8x^{3}+27y^{3}+3(16(\frac{5}{6})(\frac{5}{6})=\frac{1331}{8}$
