Q1 :

Write whether the rational number will have a terminating decimal expansion or a non-terminating repeating decimal expansion.


Answer :

The given rational number i.e.,can be written as

This is of the form, where m = 2 and n = 3 are non-negative integers.

Thus, has a terminating decimal expansion.

Q2 :

Write the polynomial, the product and sum of whose zeroes are and respectively.


Answer :

Let α and β be the zeroes of the required polynomial.

It is given that and.

Therefore, the required polynomial is given by

For k = 2,

Thus, one of the polynomials which satisfy the given condition is.

Q3 :

Write whether the following pair of linear equations is consistent or not:

x + y = 14

xy = 4


Answer :

The given pair of linear equations can be written as

x + y − 14 = 0

xy − 4 = 0

Here, a1 = 1, b1 = 1, c1 = −14

a2 = 1, b2 = −1, c2 = −4

Now,

Thus, the given pair of linear equations is consistent.
