Directions(1-5): Find the relation between x and y and choose a correct option.

1. I. 5x^2 – 29x + 36 = 0
II. 10y^2 – 3y – 27 = 0

y>x
x=y or relation cannot be established.
x>y
y>=x
x>=y
Option E
I. 5x^2 – 29x + 36 = 0
=> 5x^2 – 20x – 9x + 36 = 0
=> 5x(x-4) – 9(x-4) = 0
=> (x-4)(5x-9) = 0
=> x = 4 , 9/5
II. 10y^2 – 3y – 27 = 0
=> 10y^2 – 18y + 15y – 27 = 0
> 2y (5y-9) + 3(5y – 9) = 0
=> y = 9/5 , -3/2
x>=y

2. I. 7x^2 – 54x + 99 =0
II. 4y^2 – 16y + 15 = 0

x>y
x>=y
y>=x
y>x
x=y or relation cannot be established.
Option A
I. 7x^2 – 54x + 99 =0
=> 7x^2 – 33x – 21x + 99 =0
=> x(7x – 33) – 3(7x – 33) = 0
=> x = 333/7 , 3
II. 4y^2 – 16y + 15 = 0
=> 4y^2 – 10y – 6y + 15 = 0
=> 2y (2y – 5) – 3(2y-5) = 0
=> y = 5/2 , 3/2
x>y

3. I. x^2 – 6x – 91 = 0
II. y^2 – 32y + 247 = 0

y>=x
x>y
x>=y
x=y or relation cannot be established.
y>x
Option A
I. x^2 – 6x – 91 = 0
=> x^2 – 13x + 7x – 91 = 0
=> x = 13, -7
II. y^2 – 32y + 247 = 0
=> y^2 – 19y -13y + 247 = 0
=> y = 19, 13
x ≤ y

4. I. x^2 + 5x – 14 = 0
II. y^2 + 24y + 128 = 0

x=y or relation cannot be established.
y>x
y>=x
x>=y
x>y
Option E
I.x^2 + 5x – 14 = 0
=> x^2 + 7x – 2x – 14 = 0
=> x = -7, 2
II. y^2 + 24y + 128 = 0
=> y^2 + 16y + 8y + 128 = 0
=> y = -16, -8
x > y

5. I. x^2 + x – 30 = 0
II. y^2 – 11y + 30 = 0

x=y or relation cannot be established.
x>=y
y>x
x>y
y>=x
Option E
I. x^2 + x – 30 = 0
=> x^2 + 6x – 5x – 30 = 0
=> x = – 6, 5
II. y^2 – 11y + 30 = 0
=> y^2 – 5y – 6y + 30 = 0
=> y = 5, 6
x ≤ y
