I have got the answer of the question which satisfies the condition given, but its not actually the answer, the question is:-

log(ax) - 2log(x+1) = 0 . What is the value of a for which the above equation has exactly 1 root?

The answer which I got is 4. It satisfies the quadratic as well as log. But the teacher cut the whole marks. I dont know the answer, since it was the test paper of my friend and he had got no marks for getting 4. The question is of 8 marks, so it shouldnt be that easy. Please help me.

Dear avijit


log(ax) - 2log(x+1) = 0

for this

ax>0   and x+1>0


lets solve

 log(ax) - 2log(x+1) = 0

or ax= (x+1)2

or x2 + x(2-a) +1=0

for unique solution discrimnent must be zero

 which give a=0 or 4

but ax>0 so a can't be zero

for a=4   x=1 is solution

which satisfy the given equation

if a>0 ,b>0 ,c>0 and the maximum value of a(b 2 +c 2 ) +b(c 2 +a 2 ) +c(a 2 +b 2 ) is X abc ,then X is (a) 2 (b) 1 (c)6 (d) 3
From AM-GM inequality with equality when b=c. Repeat this for the other two terms and add and you will get RHS with equality when a=b=c

If A1,A2,A3, in AP such that, A1+A5+A10+A15+A20+A24=225, then, A1+A2+A3+...A23+A24 is equal to?
A1,A2,A3, in AP the write in common terms of a and d. .i.e. A1 = a A2 =a+d A3 =a+2d . . A24 = a+23d summing all we get, 4(6a+69d) = > 4*225 = 900 perhaps.

u can also solve in such way, (A1+A24) +(A5+A20) +(A10+A15)=225. THEREFORE 3(A1+A24)=225 (A1+A24)=75. NOW SUM=24/12(A1+A24) =900
