With the changing pattern in exam, One should be ready for each type of questions. So we are providing you with questions on **Cubic Equations.**

**Directions: In the following questions, two equations numbered are given in variables x and y. You have to solve both the equations and find out the relationship between x and y. Then give answer accordingly –**

- I. x
^{3} + 7x^{2} + 16x + 12 = 0,

II. y^{3} – 2y^{2} – 5y + 6 = 0

A) If x > y

B) If x < y

C) If x ≥ y

D) If x ≤ y

E) If x = y or relation cannot be established

** Option D**

Solution:

In these equations, you will have to first satisfy the equation with some root.

Like start with 1: Put x = 1 in x^{3} + 7x^{2} + 16x + 12 = 0 and see if it equals to 0. It does not. Next move on to -1, again not, next put 2 and then -2

-2 satisfies the equation: -8 + 28 – 32 + 12 = 0. Since -2 satisfies the equation so (x+2) is a factor of this equation.

So x = -2, -3

Next divide x^{3} + 7x^{2} + 16x + 12 = 0 by (x+2) . It gives x^{2} + 5x + 6 which is a quadratic equation. Its roots are -2 and -3

Now same with y^{3} – 2y^{2} – 5y + 6 = 0

Putting y = 1, satisfies the equation, so (y-1) is a factor of this equation> Now divide y^{3} – 2y^{2} – 5y + 6 = 0 by (y-1) gives y^{2} – y – 6 = 0 which is a quadratic equation with roots -2 and 3

So y = 1, -2, 3

Now put on number line

-3……-2…..1……3

so x ≤ y

- I. x
^{3} – x^{2} – 2x = 0,

II. y^{3} – 7y – 6 = 0

A) If x > y

B) If x < y

C) If x ≥ y

D) If x ≤ y

E) If x = y or relation cannot be established

View Answer

** Option E**

Solution:

x^{3} – x^{2} – 2x = 0 becomes

x (x^{2} – x – 2) = 0

So x = 0 and (x^{2} – x – 2) = 0

Second is a quadratic equation with roots -1 and 2

So x = 0, -1, 2

Now y^{3} – 7y – 6 = 0

Put y = 1 – Does not satisfy.

Put y = -1 – Satisfies the equation so (y+1) is a factor

Divide y^{3} – 7y – 6 = 0 by (y+1) gives y^{2} – y – 6 = 0

So y = -1, -2, 3

Put on number line

-2……-1..…0……2……3 so no relation

- I. x
^{3} – 6x^{2} + 11x – 6 = 0,

II. y^{3} + 9y^{2} + 26y + 24 = 0

A) If x > y

B) If x < y

C) If x ≥ y

D) If x ≤ y

E) If x = y or relation cannot be established

View Answer

** Option A**

Solution:

For x^{3} – 6x^{2} + 11x – 6 = 0, x = 1 satisfies the equation so (x-1) is a factor

Divide x^{3} – 6x^{2} + 11x – 6 = 0 by (x-1) => gives x^{2} – 5x + 6 = 0

Gives x = 1, 2, 3

Similarly for second equation, y = -2, -3, -4

put on number line

So x > y

- I. x
^{3} + x^{2} – 4x – 4 = 0,

II. y^{3} – 7y^{2} + 14y – 8 = 0

A) If x > y

B) If x < y

C) If x ≥ y

D) If x ≤ y

E) If x = y or relation cannot be established

View Answer

** Option E**

Solution:

x = -1 satisfies x^{3} + x^{2} – 4x – 4 = 0

So (x+1) is a factor. On dividing gives x^{2} – 4 = 0

So x = -1, 2, -2

Similarly for second equation

y = 1, 2, 4

- I. 3x
^{3} – 13x^{2} + 18x – 8 = 0,

II. 3y^{3} + 14y^{2} – 32 = 0

A) If x > y

B) If x < y

C) If x ≥ y

D) If x ≤ y

E) If x = y or relation cannot be established

View Answer

** Option E**

Solution:

x = 1 satisfies 3x^{3} – 13x^{2} + 18x – 8 = 0 so (x-1) is a factor. On dividing gives 3x^{2} – 10x + 8 = 0 which is quadratic equation with roots x = 2, 4/3

So x = 1, 2, 4/3

Similarly with second equation, y = -2, -4, 4/3

- I. 2x
^{3} + 15x^{2} + 13x – 30 = 0,

II. 2y^{3} + 22y^{2} + 5y – 18 = 0

View Answer

** Option C**

Solution:

x = 2 satisfies 2x^{3} – 13x^{2} + 22x – 8 = 0. On dividing gives 2x^{2} – 9x + 4 = 0

x = 4 , 1/2, 2

y = -1 satisfies 2y^{3} + 9y^{2} + 3y – 4 = 0. On dividing gives 2y^{2} + 7y – 4 = 0

y = -4, 1/2, -1

Put on number line

-4……-1….. 1/2……2…. 4

in question 10 equation 2nd it is 14 or 4 as a constant as i am solving a question i am getting here 14 instead of 4 please check

4 only

Put y = -1

-2 + 9 – 3 – 4 = 0

ok

mam ek doubt hai mera…………..jab cubic equations ke root three hain to why we compare only 2 ???

Nhi 2 nhi.

All 3 compare kiye h

ok mam and jab 1 root given ho to bhi 3 ko hi compare karna hai na ???

1 root given means ?

I dint get

mam ek type ke ques hote hain jinme one root given hota hai and humein remaining 2 find karne hote hain

jese mam x^3 – 5 x^2 – 2x + 24/ (x + 2) = 0

Isme 2 lo. x+2 to cancel ho jaega

And also -2 put karke denominator 0 a ra h to not defined ho jaega

ok mam

Its such as you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the ebook in it or something. I think that you simply could do with a few to force the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is great blog. An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.

Usually I don’t read article on blogs, but I would like to say that this write-up very forced me to try and do so! Your writing style has been amazed me. Thanks, quite nice post.

This is one awesome article.Much thanks again. Really Great.

Aw, this was a very good post. Finding the time and actual effort to produce a really good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.
