Question 1
If x3 + y3 = 9 and x + y = 3, then the value of x4+y4 is,
A
21
B
0
C
17
D
25
Algebra    
Discuss it


Question 1 Explanation: 
x3+y3 = (x + y) × (x2 − xy + y2)

Putting given values of x3+y3 and (x + y)
9 = 3 × ((x+y)2 − 3xy)
  = 3 × (9 − 3xy) 
  = 27 − 9xy

9xy = 18
xy = 2

x4 + y4 = (x2 + y2)2 - 2x2y2
   = (x2 + y2)2 - 2*4 
                                  [Putting value of xy]
   = ((x + y)2 - 2xy)2 - 2*4 
                            [Putting values of (x+y) and xy]
   = (9 - 4)2 - 2*4 
   = 17

Question 4 Explanation: 
say x=1
17!=13

for, x=2 and 3 also not possible
x=4
52+122=132
169=169

Question 6
If b2 + 1b2 = 1, then value of b3 + 1b3 is ,
A
0
B
6
C
-4
D

Algebra    
Discuss it


Question 6 Explanation: 
E = (b + 1b)(b2 - 1 + 1b2)
Question 7
If x1/3 + y1/3 - z1/3 = 0 then value of (x + y - z)3 + 27xyz is
A
8
B
2
C
0
D
6
Algebra    
Discuss it


Question 7 Explanation: 
x1/3 + y1/3 = z1/3
Now cubing both sides we get 
x + 3x1/3y1/3(x1/3 + y1/3) + y = z
or, (x + y - z) = -3x1/3y1/3z1/3
Cubing again both sides, (x + y - z) = -27xyz.
So answer is zero
Question 8
{\mathbf{y^{y{\sqrt[]{y}}}} = {\mathbf{(y\sqrt{y})^{y}}} then y is equal to,
A
9/4
B
7/4
C
1/4
D
5/4
Algebra    
Discuss it


Question 8 Explanation: 
Now equating power on both side, y \sqrt{y} = \frac{3y}{2} or or
Question 9
If ab+bc+ac = 0, then the value of \frac{1}{a^{2}-bc} + \frac{1}{b^{2}-ac} + \frac{1}{c^{2}-ab}
A
6
B
2
C
3
D
0
Algebra    
Discuss it


Question 9 Explanation: 
Put -ac = ab + bc ; -ab = ac+ bc and -bc =ab + ac
(ab + bc + ca)/[(a+b+c)(abc)]
as, ab+bc+ca=0
= 0
