An equation like ax2+ bx + c = 0 where a≠ 0, which contains only one variable and '2' as its highest power is called a quadratic equation. There are two values of the variable in any quadratic equation. The roots of the equations are :

$$x = \frac {-b \pm \sqrt {b^2 -4ac}}{2a}$$

### Quadratic equation are of two types:

e.g. x2 = 9 or, x2 - 9 = 0
i.e. ax2 + c = 0 ( a ≠ o, c = 0 )

e.g. x2 - 9x - 15 = 0
i.e. ax2 + bx + c = 0 ( a ≠ o, b ≠ o)

An equation like ax2+ bx + c = 0 where a≠ 0, which contains only one variable and '2' as its highest power is called a quadratic equation. There are two values of the variable in any quadratic equation.. The roots of the equations are :

$$x = \frac {-b \pm \sqrt {b^2 -4ac}}{2a}$$

Either, x - 5 = 0

∴ x = 5

Or, x - 42 = 0

∴ x = 42 ( Not possible as their current ages are less than 42 years)

Hence, 5 years ago the product of their ages was 210.

Let, x years ago, the product of their ages was192.

Age of father x years ago = ( 42- x) years

Age of son x years ago = (16 - x ) years

According to quesiton,

( 42- x) ( 16 - x) =192

or, 672- 42x - 16x + $$x ^ 2$$ =192

or, $$x ^ 2$$ - 58x + 672 - 192= 0

or, $$x ^ 2$$ -58x + 480= 0

Hence, 10years ago the product of their ages was192.

Let, after x years the product of their ages will be 280 .

Age of elder brother after x years = ( 13 + x) years

Age of younger brother after x years = ( 7 + x) years

According to question,

( 13 + x) ( 7 + x) = 280

or, 91 + 13x + 7x + $$x ^ 2$$ = 280

or, $$x ^ 2$$ + 20x +91x - 189 = 0

or,$$x ^ 2$$ + 27x - 7x - 189 = 0

or, x ( x + 27) - 7( x + 27 ) = 0

or, ( x + 27) ( x - 7) = 0

Either, x -7= 0

∴ x =7

Let, present age of father = x years amd present age of son = y years

From first condition,

x - 6 = 6( y - 6)

or, x - 6 = 6y - 36

or, x = 6y - 36 + 6

or, x = 6y - 30 -----(i)

From second condition, xy = 300 ----------(ii)

Putting the value of x from (i) in (ii)

( 6y - 30) y = 300

or, y = -5 ( Impossible)

Or, y - 10 = 0

or, y = 10

Putting the value of y in equation (i)

x = 6 x 10 - 30 = 30

Hence, the present ages of father and son are 30 years and 10 years respectively.

Let, the age of elder sister = x years and the age of younger sister = y years

From first condition, xy = 150

or, y = $$\frac {150}{x}$$ -----(i)

x - 5 = 2 ( y - 5)

or, x - 5 = 2y - 10

or, x = 2y - 10 + 5

or, x = 2y - 5 -----------(ii)

Putting the value of y from equation (i) in equation (ii)

x = 2$$\frac {150}{x}$$ - 5

or, x = $$\frac { 300 - 5x}{x}$$

or, $$x ^ 2$$ = 300 - 5x

or, $$x ^ 2$$ + 5x - 300 = 0

or,$$x ^ 2$$ + 20x - 15x - 300 = 0

Either x - 15 = 0

∴ x = 15

Or, x + 20 = 0

∴ x = - 20 ( Not possible)

Putting the value of x in euqaiton (ii)

15 = 2y - 5

or, 2y = 15 + 5

or, 2y = 20

or, y = $$\frac {20}{2}$$

or, y = 10

Hence, the present ages of elder and younger sisters are 15 and 10 years respectively.

Let, the two numbers are x and y

or, x ( x - 15) - 6 ( x - 15) = 0

or, (x - 6) ( x - 15) = 0

Either, x - 6 = 0

∴ x = 6

Or, x - 15 = 0

∴ x = 15

When, x = 15, y = 21- 5 = 6

When x = 6, y = 21 - 6 = 15

Hence, the required numbers are 6,15 or 15,6.

Let, the two digit number is 10x + y where y is one's place and x is ten's place

From first conditon, xy = 35 ------(i)

or, 10x - x + y - 10y = -18

or, 9x - 9y = - 18

or 9 ( x - y) = -18

or, ( x - y) = $$\frac {-18}{9}$$

or, x - y = -2

or, x = y - 2 --------------------(ii)

Putting the value of x in equation (ii) from (i)

(y - 2) y = 35

or, $$y ^ 2$$ - 2y = 35

or, $$y ^ 2$$ - 7y + 5y -35 = 0

or, y ( y - 7) + 5( y - 7) = 0

or, ( y + 5) ( y - 7 )= 0

Either,

y - 7 = 0

∴ y = 7

Or, y + 5 = 0

∴ y = - 5 ( Not possible)

Putting the value of y in equation (ii)

x = 7 - 2 = 5

Hence, the requierd number is 10x + y = 10 x 5 + 7 = 57
