Represent the following situations in the form of quadratic
(i) The area of a rectangular plot is 528 m2. The
length of the plot (in metres) is one more than twice its
breadth. We need to find the length and breadth of the plot.
(ii) The product of two consecutive positive integers is 306. We
need to find the integers.
mother is 26 years older than him. The product of their ages (in
years) 3 years from now will be 360. We would like to find
(iv) A train travels a distance of 480 km at a uniform speed. If
the speed had been 8 km/h less, then it would have taken 3 hours
more to cover the same distance. We need to find the speed of the
(i) Let the breadth of the plot be x m.
Hence, the length of the plot is (2x + 1) m.
Area of a rectangle = Length x Breadth
∴ 528 = x (2x + 1)
(ii) Let the consecutive integers be x and x + 1.
It is given that their product is 306.
(iii) Let Rohan’s age be x.
Hence, his mother’s age = x + 26
3 years hence,
Rohan’s age = x + 3
Mother’s age = x + 26 + 3 = x +
It is given that the product of their ages after 3 years is 360.
(iv) Let the speed of train be x km/h.
Time taken to travel 480 km =
In second condition, let the speed of train = km/h
It is also given that the train will take 3 hours to cover the
Therefore, time taken to travel 480 km = hrs
Speed x Time = Distance
