How many pairs of (x,y) satisfy the equations 3x+6y=21 and 4x+8y=16

2 years ago


Answers : (4)


as 3/4=6/8  so these lines are parallel, i.e. have no common point, so 0 pairs of (x,y) will satisfy this

3x + 6y = 21

or, x+2y=7





Inconsistent equations. No solution.

dear suresh,

these two equations reaemble two parallel lines as a1/a2=b1/b2not equal to c1/c2.

so these two lines never intersect and thus have no solution

no solution since they are parallel lines
please post some tough questions next time

A certain polynomial P(x),x E R WHEN DIVIDED BY (x-a),(x-b) and (x-c) leaves remainder a,b,c.then find the remainder when P(x) is divided by (x-a)(x-b)(x-c) where a,b,c are distinct
it is clear that f(a) is the remainder when f(x) is divided by x-a and when f(x) is divided by q(x) the remainder will be having degree less than q(x) so when P(x) is divided by...

The polynomial P(x) - x has roots a,b, and c Hence P(x) - x = (x-a)(x-b)(x-c) Q(x) for some polynomial Q(x) or P(x) = Q(x) (x-a)(x-b)(x-c) + x It immediately follows that the remainder when...

If the equation x³-3x+a=0 has distict roots between 0&1 then the value of a is •2 •3 •½ •none of these (with method)
Oh Yes!! I mistook the 3x term as 3x2. Very sorry for that. But that does not change the answer as the only possibility for a,b,c so that their sum is 0 is all of them equal to zero. But...

The sum of roots (let`s call them a, b ,c) will be -(-3) = 3. Now if the roots are distinct and between 0 and 1, there are no values of a,b,c which will satisfy above condition. So no such...

find the values of "x" for which the rate of change of (x^4/4)+(x^3/3)-x is more than x^4/4 ?
x^3 + x^2 > x^4>4 x^4-4x^3-4x^2<0 x^2(x^2-4x-4)<0 roots 2+- 2sqrt(2), between the the two roots above conditions satisfy.

Is it possible to add two vectors of unequal magnitude and get a resultant of zero?Please explain also.
PT: |x| is not = |y| x+y=0 therefore, x=-y therefore, we get |-y| and |y|, but they are equal, therefore |x|=|y|, For a simple example, Take a block of unit mass kept on a table. You and...

no it is not possible as .. if the magnitude is diffrent then they cannot cancel.... soo... if the resultant has to b zero then the vectors should have same ma n diff direction
it is not possible .for two vectors to give zero resultant their components along the x and y axis must cancel each other which is not possible for this case.
