Directions (Q. 7-10): In each question two equations are provided on the basis of these you have to find the relation between x and y. Give answer :
1. If x > y
2.  If x ≥ y
3.  If x ≤ y
4.  If x < y
5. If x = y or no relationship between x and y existsQuestion :
7. I.  5x2 + 23x + 24 = 0         II. y2 + y – 6 = 0
8. I. 4x2 + 5x + 1 = 0               II. y2 + 3y +2 = 0
9.  I. 3x + 5y = 9                       II. 4x +3y = 6
10. I. 2x2 + x – 3 = 0               II. y2 – 13y + 42 = 0

1. 1;
2. 3; 2x + 5x + 9x + 8x = 360º
∴ 24x = 360º
x = 15º
Hence the largest angle of the triangle = 8 × 15 = 120º
Third angle = 180º – 120º – 35º = 25º
3. 4; 4. 2; 5. 4; 6. 5; 7. 5; I. 5x2 + 23x + 24 = 0
⇒ 5x2 + 8x + 15x + 24 = 0
or (x + 3) (5x + 8) = 0
⇒ x = – 3, –8/5
II. y2 + y – 6 = 0
⇒ y2 + 3y – 2y – 6 = 0
or (y – 2) (y + 3) = 0
∴ y = 2, –3
∴ No relationship between x and y exists.
8. 2;  I. 4x2 + 5x + 1 = 0
⇒ 4x2 + x + 4x + 1 = 0
⇒ (x + 1) (4x + 1) = 0
⇒ x = –1,
II. y2 + 3y +2 = 0
⇒ y2 + 2y + y + 2 = 0
⇒(y + 1) (y + 2) = 0
⇒ y = –1, –2
∴; x ≥ y
9. 4;
10. 4; I. 2x2 + x – 3 = 0
⇒ 2x2 + 3x – 2x – 3 = 0
⇒ (x – 1) (2x + 3) = 0
⇒ x = 1, – 3/2
II. y2 – 13y + 42 = 0
⇒ y2 – 7y – 6y + 42 = 0
⇒ (y – 6) (y – 7) = 0
⇒ y = 6, 7
∴ x < y
