The range of values of a for which roots of the quadratic equation x^2+x-3a+2=0 are of opposite sign is given by

a) a<1    

b) a>2

c) 1

d) 0

Answers : (1)


Your given equation is

x2 + x – 3a + 2 = 0

Since the roots are opposite in sign, so α x β is –ve                  (i)


α x β = -3a + 2/1                 (ii)

Therefore, product of roots of the eq.

ax2 + bx + c = c/a

From equation (i) and (ii), we have

-3a + 2 < 0

-3a < -2

a > 2/3                           (i)

Also, discriminant D should be greater than 0 for roots to be real

Hence, 1 – 4 (-3a + 2) > 0

1 > 4(-3a + 2)

-12a + 8 < 1

-12a < -7

a > 7/12                          (ii)

Taking the intersection (i) and (ii) we have,

a > 2/3

Hence, the most appropriate option is (b) a > 2 , since a > 2/3

Then, a > 2.

let A1, A2, A3 ......An, be the vertices of an n sided regular polygon inscribed in a circle of radius R. If (A1A2)^2+ (A1A3)^2 +.......+ (A1An)^2 = 14(R)^2. Find n.
U need to use the theorem property which states, a/2 = R*sin(pi/n) where a is te length of polygon and R is the circumradius.

A man starts from the point P(-3,4) and reaches point Q(0,1) touching x axis at R such that PR+RQ is minimum, then point R is : ???
It can be any point,because for any point on x-axis the sum of the distance is same as that of PQ. i hope u are satisfied. plese post if u r any further doubts.
