Directions (Q.6-10): In each of these questions, two equations (I) and (II) are given. You have to solve both the equations and give answer
1) if x < y
2) if x > y
3) if x ≤  y
4) if x≥ y
5) if x = y, or relationship between x and y can't be established.

6. I.  6x^2-49x+99=0
II. 5y^2+17y+14=0

7. I.  5x^2=19x-12
II. 5y^2+11y=12

8. I.  x^3=(1331)^1/3
II. 2y^2-21y+55=0

9. I.  5x=7y+21
II. 11x+4y+109=0

10. I. 2x^2-11x+12=0
II. 2y^2-17y+36=0

1. 2;
Let the total number of pineapple be x
70/100 x = 350
x = 350 * 100/70 = 500

2. 3;
Ratio of their uses = 8 : 10 : 12 = 4 : 5 : 6
Rent paid by R = 6/15 * 2250 = Rs. 900

3. 2;
Part of tank filled in 1 hour
1/20 + 1/24 - 1/40 = 15
Thus, required time for the tank to be filled = 15 hrs.

4. 2;
15 A = 10 B
3A = 2B Now, B – 10 = 3A – 22
or, B – 10 = 2B – 22 or, (Put 3A = 2B) or, B = 12
A = 2*12/3 = 8
Required sum = 20

5. 5;
Speed of train = 450/6 = 75 km/hr
Speed of bike = 75/2 = 37.5 km/hr

Time taken by bike = 300/37.5 = 8 hour

6. (2)
6x^2-49x+99=0 = (3x-11) (2x-9)=0
x=11/3, 9/2= 5^2+17y+14=>
(5y+7) (y+2)=> y=-2,-7/5

x>y

7.(4)
5x^2-19x+12=0 = x=3,4/5
5y^2+11y=12  =  y = 4/5 ,-3

8. (2)
x=11 = 2y^2-21y+55= 0
(2y-11) (y-5)= 0= y=5,11/2

x>y

9. (2)
From given equation
x=-7 y=-8
x>Y

10 (3)
2x^2-11x+12=> x=3/2,4
2y^2-17y+36=>  y=4,9/2
