# Quant Mania: Quadratic Inequality (with Detailed Solution)

Today we are presenting you Quant Mania on Quadratic Inequality which is very important for your upcoming LIC AAO and other exams. You may expect same questions in your upcoming exams. Try to solve it.

Directions (Q. 1-5): In each of these questions, two equations (I) and (II) are given. You have to solve both the equations and give answer.

1. I. x2 – 25 = 0, II. y2 – 3y - 18 = 0
a) if x > y
b) if x ≥ y
c) if x < y
d) if x ≤ y
e) if x = y or no relation can be established between x and y.
2. I. 2x2 – 3x + 1 = 0, II. 2y2 - 9y + 9 = 0
a) if x > y
b) if x ≥ y
c) if x < y
d) if x ≤ y
e) if x = y or no relation can be established between x and y.

3. I. x2 = 4y, II. y = (729)1/3
a) if x > y
b) if x ≥ y
c) if x < y
d) if x ≤ y
e) if x = y or no relation can be established between x and y.

4. x2 – 5x + 6 = 0, II. y2 - 3y + 2 = 0
a) if x > y
b) if x ≥ y
c) if x < y
d) if x ≤ y
e) if x = y or no relation can be established between x and y.

5. I. 3x2 – 19x + 20=0, II. (3y – 4) (y – 5) = 0
a) if x > y
b) if x ≥ y
c) if x < y
d) if x ≤ y
e) if x = y or no relation can be established between x and y.

1. e;
I. x2 – 25 = 0
or, x2 = 25
or, x = ± 5

II. y2 – 3y - 18 = 0
or, y2 - 6y + 3y - 18= 0
or, y(y - 6) + 3(y - 6) = 0
or, (y - 6) (y + 3) = 0
or, y = 6, -3
Hence, no relation can be established.

2. c;
I. 2x2 – 3x + 1 = 0
or, 2x2 – 2x - 1x + 1 = 0
or, 2x(x – 1) - 1(x - 1) = 0
or, (2x – 1) (x - 1) = 0
x = ½, 1

II. 2y2 - 9y + 9 = 0
or, 2y2 - 6y - 3y + 9 = 0
or, 2y(y - 3) - 3(y - 3) = 0
or, (2y - 3) (y - 3) = 0
y = 3/2, 3
Hence, x < y

3. c;
II. y = (729)1/3
y = 9

I. x2 = 4y
or, x2 = 4 * 9 = 36
or, x = ±6
Hence,
x < y

4. b;
I. x2 – 5x + 6 = 0
or, x2 – 3x - 2x + 6 = 0
or. x(x - 3) - 2(x – 3) = 0
or, (x - 3) (x - 2) = 0
x = 3, 2

II. y2 - 3y + 2 = 0
or, y2 - 2y - y + 2 = 0
or, y(y - 2) - 1(y - 2) = 0
or, (y - 2) (y - 1) = 0
y = 1, 2
Hence, x ≥ y

5. e;
I. 3x2 – 19x + 20 = 0,
or, 3x2 – 15x – 4x+ 20 = 0
or, 3x(x – 5) – 4(x – 5) = 0
or, (3x – 4) (x – 5) = 0
x = 4/3, 5

II. (3y – 4) (y – 5) = 0
y = 4/3, 5
Hence, x = y
