**Algebra Exercise 3.3 Solutions :**

**Algebra Exercise 3.3 Solutions :**

**(1) Check whether p(x) is a multiple of g(x) or not.**

**p(x) = x³ – 5x² + 4x – 3; g(x) = x – 2**

**Solution : **

Let, g(x) = 0

Then, x – z = 0

= x = 2

P(x) = x³ – 5x² + 4x – 3

= 23 – 5z² + 4.2 – 3

= -7 ≠ 0

This is not a multiple of g(x)

**(2) By remainder theorem, find the remainder when, p(x) is divided by g(x) where**

**(i) p(x) = x³ – 2x² – 4x – 1 g(x) = x + 1**

**(ii) p(x) = 4x³ – 12x² + 14x – 3 g(x) = 2x – 1**

**(iii) p(x) = x³ – 3x³ + 4x + 50 g(x) = x – 3**

**Solution : **

(i) g(x) = x + 1

= x + 1 = 0

= x = -1

P(-1) = (-1)³ – 2 (1)² – 4 (-1) – 1

= -1 – 2 + 4 – 1 = 0

Remainder = 0

(ii) 2x -1 = 0

= x = 1/2

P(1/2) = 4(1/2)³ – 12 × 1/2² + 14.1/2 – 3

= 4 1/8 – 12 × 1/4 + 14/2 – 3

= 1/2 – 3 + 7 -3

= 1/2 + 1 = 3/2

So, Remainder = 3/2

(iii) x – 3 = 0

= x = 3

P(3) = 3³ – 3.3² + 4.3 + 50

= 27 – 27 + 12 + 50

= 62

Remainder = 62

**(5) For what value of k is the polynomial p(x) = 2x³ – kx² + 3x + 10 exactly divisible by (x – 2)**

**Solution : **

x – 2 = 0 = x = 2

P(2) = 2.2³ – k2² + 3.2 + 10

= 16 – 4k + 6 + 10

= 32 – 4k = 0

= k = 8

So, the value of k is 8.

**(6) If two polynomials 2x³ + ax² + 4x – 12 and x³ + x² –2x+ a leave the same remainder when divided by (x – 3), find the value of a and also find the remainder.**

**Solution : **

Given, x – 3 = 0

= x = 3

F(3) = 2.83 + a3² + 4.3 – 12 = 54 + 9a

x-3 = 0 = x = 3 Since , remainder are same

g(3) = 3³ + 3² -2.3 + a = 27 – 9 – 6 + a

= a+30

= 9a + 54 = a + 30

= 8a = -24 = a = -3

Therefore, f(3) = 9(-3) + 54 = 27

**(7) Determine whether (x – 1) is a factor of the following polynomials :**

**(i) x³ + 5x² – 10x + 4**

**(ii) x⁴ + 5x² – 5x + 1**

**Solution : **

(i) p(1) = 0

= 1³ + 5.1² – 10 + 4

= 1 + 5 – 10 + 4 = 0

Therefore, (x-1) is a factor.

(ii) p(1) = 0

P(1) = 1⁴ + 5.1² – 5(1) + 1

= 1 + 5 – 5 + 1

= 2 ≠ 0

Therefore, (x-1) is not a factor.

**(8) Using factor theorem, show that (x -5) is a factor of the polynomial 2x³ – 5x² – 28x + 15**

**Solution : **

p(5) = 0

Because, p(5) = 2.5³ – 5.5² – 28.5 + 15

= 250 – 125 – 140 + 15

= 0

So, (x-5) is a factor of 2x³ – 5x² – 28x + 15

**(9) Determine the value of m, if (x+3) is a factor of x³ – 3x² – mx + 24**

**Solution : **

Since, x + 3 is a factor

So, p(-3) = (-3)³ – 3(-3)² – m (-3) + 24 = 0

Because, -27 – 9 + 3m + 24 = 0

= 3m – 30 = 0

= m = 10

Therefore, the value of m is 10.

**(11) If (x-1) divides the polynomial kx³ – 2x² + 25x − 26 without remainder, then find the value of k**

**Solution : **

Since, x – 1 is a factor

So, p(1) = K.1³ – 2.1² + 25.1 – 26 = 0

= K – 2 + 25 – 26 = 0

= K – 3 = 0

= K = 3

Therefore, the value of k is 3.

**Algebra Exercise 3.8 Solutions :**

**(1) Factorise each of following polynomials using synthetic division**

**(i) x³ – 3x² – 10 + 24**

**(ii) p(x) = 2x³ – 3x² – 3x + 2**

**(iii) p(x) = – 7x + 3 + 4x³**

**(iv) p(x) = x³ – 7x + 6**

**(v) p(x) = x³ – 10x² – x + 10**

**Solution : **

(i) x³ – 3x² – 10 + 24

Let (p(x) = x³ – 3x² – 10x + 24

Put x = 1

P(1) = 1 – 3 – 10 + 24 ≠ 10

(x – 1) is not factor

Again put x = 1

P (-1) = -1 – 3 + 24 ≠ 0

(x + 1) not factor

Let x = 2

P(2) = 8 – 12 – 20 + 24 = 0

So (x – 2) is a factor

1 -3 – 10 24 ÷ 2

= 1 -1 – 12 0

= 1 -1 – 12 0 ÷ -3

= 1 -4 0

So, x³ – 3x² – 10x + 24 = (x – 2) (x + 3) (x – 4)

(ii) p(x) = 2x³ – 3x² – 3x + 2

Put x = 1, p (x) = 1 – 3 – 3 + 2 ≠0

Put x = – 1, p (-1) = – 2 – 3 + 3 + 2 = 0

(x + 1) is a factor

2 -3 -3 2 ÷ -1

= 2 -5 2

∴ 2x³ – 3x² – 3x + 2 = (x + 1) (x – 2) (2x + 1)

(iii) p(x) = – 7x + 3 + 4x³

Putting x = 1 p (x) = 4 + 3 – 7 = 0

(x + 1) is factor

4 0 -7 3 ÷ 1

= 4 4 – 3 0

Quotient 4x² + 4x – 3

= 4x² + 6x – 2x – 3

= 2x (2x + 3) – 1 (2x + 3)

= (2x + 3) (2x – 1)

So, 4x³ + 3 – 7x = (2x + 3 (2x – 1) (x – 1)

(iv) p(x) = x³ – 7x + 6

Put x = 1, p(1) = 1 – 7 + 6 = 0

x – 1 is a factor

1 0 -7 6 ÷ -1

= 1 1 -6 0

1 1 -6 0 ÷ 2

= 1 3 0

The factors are (x – 1), (x – 2), (x + 3)

So, x³ – 7x + 6 = (x – 10 (x – 2) (x = 3)

(v) p(x) = x³ – 10x² – x + 10

Putting x = 1, p(x) = 1 – 10 – 1 + 10 = 0

(x – 1) is a factor

1 -10 -1 10 ÷ -1

= 1 -9 -10 0

1 -9 -10 0 ÷ -1

= 1 -10 0

Therefore, x³ – 10x² – x + 10 = (x – 1) (x + 1) (x – 10)

**(1) Solve, using the method of substitution.**

**(i) 2x – 3y = 7; 5x + y = 9**

**(ii) 1.5x + 0.1y = 6.2; 3x – 0.4y = 11.2**

**(iii) 10% of x + 20% of y = 24; 3x – y = 20**

**(iv) √2x – √3y = 1; √3x – √8y = 0**

**Solution : **

(i) 2x – 3y = 7; 5x + y = 9

2x-3y = 7- (i)

5x + y = 9- (ii)

= 5x + y = 9

= y = 9 – 5x

Then, we get form (i)

2x – 3(9 – 5x)=7

= 2x – 27 = 15x = 7

= 17x = 34

= x = 34/17 = 2

So, y = 9 – 34/17 × 5

9 – 10 = -1

X = 2

Y = -1

(ii) 1.5x + 0.1y = 6.2; 3x – 0.4y = 11.2

1.5x + 0.1y = 6.2 …… (i)

3x – 0.4y = 11.2 …… (ii)

y = 0.62 – 1.5x

Now, 3x – 0.4 (6.2 – 1.5x) = 11.2

= 3x + 6x – 24.8 = 11.2

= + 9x = 11.2 + 24.8

= x = 36/9 = 4

0.1y = 6.2 – 1.5×4

20.1y = 6.2 – 6

y = 2

x = 4

y = 2

(iii) 10% of x + 20% of y = 24; 3x – y = 20

10/100 x + 20/100 y = 24

= 10x + 20y = 24×100

= x + 2y = 240

3x – y = 20

= y = 3x – 20

So, x + 2 (3x – 20) = 240

= x + 6x + 40 = 240

= 7x = 280

= x = 40

So, y = 3×40 – 20

= 120 – 20

= 100

x = 40

y = 100

(iv) √2x – √3y = 1; √3x – √8y = 0

√2x – √3y = 1 …… (i)

√3x – √8y = 0 …… (ii)

∵ √3x = √8y

= y = √3/√8 x

So, √2x – √3× √3/√8x = 1

= 4x – 3x/√8 = 1

= x = √8

So, y = √3/√8 ×√8

= √3

So, x = √8

y = √3

**(2) Raman’s age is three times the sum of the ages of his two sons. After 5 years his age will be twice the sum of the ages of his two sons. Find the age of Raman.**

**Solution : **

Let, Raman’s age be = a

Sum of age of his sons are = b

So a = 3b

So, a + 5 = 2 (b+10)

= a + 5 = 2b + 20

= a – 2b = 15

So, 3b – 2b = 15

b = 15

So, a = 3×15 = 45

∴ Raman’s age is 45

**(3) The middle digit of a number between 100 and 1000 is zero and the sum of the other digit is 13. If the digits are reversed, the number so formed exceeds the original number by 495. Find the number.**

**Solution : **

Let, the number be x and y

∴ and x + y = 13 ……. (i)

So, 100y + x (100x + y) = 495

100y + x – 100x – y = 495

= – 99x + 99y = 495 ……. (ii)

Multiplying (i) by 99 and subtract from (ii)

– 99x + 99y = 495

+ 99x + 99y = 1287

——————————-

198y = 792

**(iii) 2/x + 3/y = 5; 3/x – 1/y + 9 = 0**

**Solution : **

(i) 8x – 3y = 12; 5x = 2y + 7

8x – 3y = 12

5x – 2y = 7

From, cross-multiplication method we get

x/22 = b/-33 = 1/-11

= x/22 = 1/-33

∴ x = 22/-11

b/-33 = 1/-11

= b = 3

(ii) 6x + 7y – 11 = 0; 5x + 2y = 13

6x + 7y – 11 = 0

5x + 2y – 13 = 0

x/-91 + 22 = y/78 – 55 = 1/12 – 35

x/-69 = y/23 = 1/23

x/-69 = 1/23

= x = 3

y/23 = 1/23

= y = 1

(iii) 2/x + 3/y = 5; 3/x – 1/y + 9 = 0

2/x + 3/y = 5, 3/x – 1/y + 9 = 0

Put, 1/x = a, 1/y = b

2a + 3b – 5 = 0

3a – b + 9 = 0

a/27-5 = b/18+15 = 1/-2-9

= a/22 = b/33 = 1/-11

a/22 = 1/-11

= a = -2

b/33 = 1/-11

= b = -3

So, x = – 1/2

y = – 1/3

**(2) Akshaya has 2 rupee coins and 5 rupee coins in her purse. If in all she has 80 coins totalling ₹ 220, how many coins of each kind does she have.**

**Solution : **

Let, number of 2 rupee coins be x

Number of 5 rupee coins be y

x + y = 80 = x + y – 80 = 0

2x + 5y = 220 = 2x + 5y – 220 = 0

x/-220 + 400 = y/-220 + 160 = 1/5 – 2

= x/180 = y/60 = 1/3

= x = 180/3

= 60

y/60 = 1/3

= y = 20

Thus, number of 2 rupee coins will be 60

And number of 5 rupee coins will be 20

**(3) It takes 24 hours to fill a swimming pool using two pipes. If the pipe of larger diameter is used for 8 hours and the pipe of the smaller diameter is used for 18 hours. Only half of the pool is filled. How long would each pipe take to fill the swimming pool.**

**Solution : **

Let the larger pipe take time hours

The smaller pipe take time y hours

∴ 1/x + 1/y = 1/24

In 1 hour the larger pipe can fill = 1/x

In 1 hour the smaller pipe can fill = 1/y

8/x + 18/y = 1/2

Put 1/x = a, 1/y = b

a + b = 1/24

= 24a + 24b – 1 = 0

8a + 18b = 1/2

= 16a + 36b – 1 = 6

a/-24+36 = b/-16 + 24 = 1/264 – 384

= a/12 = b/8 = 1/480

a = 12/480 = 1/40

So, x = 40

b = 8/480 = 1/60

y = 60
