Find the discriminant of the quadratic equation
Answer :
For the quadratic equation ax^{2} + bx + c = 0,
Discriminant = D =b^{2} − 4ac
Hence, for the given equation, D =
= 100 − 36
= 64
Thus, the discriminant of the given equation is 64.
If, a, and 2 are three consecutive terms of an A.P., then find the value of a.
Answer :
If three terms a, b, and c are in A.P., then we have b − a = c − b
⇒ 2b = a + c
∴ Ifare three consecutive terms of an A.P., then
Thus, the value of a is.
If the areas of two similar triangles are in the ratio 25:64, write the ratio of their corresponding sides.
Answer :
We know thatthe ratio of the areas of two similar triangles is equal to the square of the ratio of their corresponding sides.
It is given that the areas of two similar triangles are in the ratio 25:64.
Thus, the ratio of the corresponding sides of the two similar triangles is 5:8.
