 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 2
If x+1/2x = 2, find the value of 8x3+1/x3
 A 40 B 20 C 28 D 35
Algebra
Discuss it

 Question 3
For any real number x the maximum value of 4−6x−x2 is at x=,
 A 4 B 6 C -3 D 3
Algebra
Discuss it

Question 3 Explanation:
Differentiate and equate to 0 6+2x =0 x=−3
 Question 4
If 5√x +12√x =13√x then value of x is,
 A 2 B 1 C 3 D 4
Algebra
Discuss it

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

for, x=2 and 3 also not possible
x=4
52+122=132
169=169
 Question 5
if x = (√2 + 1 )-15 then the value of (x5 - 1x5)
 A 0 B -2 C 2 D 4
Algebra
Discuss it

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

Question 6 Explanation:
E = (b + 1⁄b)(b2 - 1 + 1⁄b2)

 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.

 Question 8 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, or or Question 9
If ab+bc+ac = 0, then the value of 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
 Question 10
