#### Ques 2.

I. 2X+ 11X + 12= 0  ;     II.2Y+ 19Y + 45 = 0

Solution :
==> 2X^2+8X+3X+12 = 0
==> 2X(X+4)+3(X+4) = 0
==> (2X+3)(X+4) = 0
==> X = -3/2 and -4

==> 2Y^2+10Y+9Y+45 = 0
==>2Y(Y+5)+9(Y+5) = 0
==> (2Y+9)(Y+5) = 0
==> Y = -9/2 and -5
x>y

#### Ques 3.

Total interest= [(14000*r*8)/100] + [(6000*r*5)/100] = 9230
==>1120r+ 300r= 9230
==>1420r = 9230

Gopal = 24
Krishna  = 24 * 1.5 = 36
Difference = 36 – 24 = 12
