### QUANT QUIZ:QUDRATIC EQUATION&NUMBER SERIES...

Directions (Q. 1–5): In each of these questions, two equations numbered I and II with variables x and y
are given. You have to solve both the equations to find the value of x and y. 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 cannot be determined.

1.
I. 5x^2 – 8x + 3 = 0
II. 3y^2 + 5y – 2 = 0

2.
I. x^8 – (3 * 8) ^(17/2)/sqroot(x) = 0
II. 11/sqroot(y) + 18/sqroot(y) = sqroot(y)

3.
I. sqroot(169x^2) – 2197 = 0
II. sqroot(484) y + 132 = 0

4.
I. (625)^(1/4) x + sqroot(1225) = 155
II. 225y^2 + 18 = 279

5.
I. x^2 – 7x + 12 = 0
II. y^2 – 9y + 20 = 0

1. 1
I. 5x^2 – 5x – 3x + 3 = 0
5x(x – 1) –3 (x – 1) = 0
x = 1, 3/5

II. 3y2 + 6y – y – 2 = 0
3y (y + 2) –1 (y + 2) = 0
(y + 2) (3y – 1) = 0
y = –2, 1/3
x > y

2. 3
I. x^(17/2) = (24)^(17/2)
x = 24

II. y = 29
y > x

3. 1
I. 13x = 2197
x = 169

II. 22y = – 132
y = – 6
x > y

4. 1
I. sqroot(25)x +35 = 155
x = 120/5 = 24
II. 15y = 261
y = 17.4
x > y

5. 4
I. x^2 – 4x – 3x + 12 = 0
(x – 4) (x – 3) = 0
x = 4, 3

II. y^2 – 5y – 4y + 20 = 0
(y – 5) (y – 4) = 0
y = 5, 4
y > x
