Hi Debdutta,


 


As y is always positive, let us see what happens in these cases


 


1. x>0, in this case we are subtracting a positive term from y^2 and hence possibility of minimum


2. x<0, in this case we are subtracting a negative term from y^2 and hence a possibility for maximum.


 


So we say g(x) = max|y^2 - xy|, x>0 for g(x) = minimum.


 


Now say y lies in (0,1] ie y is not equal to zero. In this case there will always exist a positive x where g(x) is always > 0.


And hence the minimum value will be possibile for x=y, ie the minimum value will be 0.


In case y=0, then g(x) = 0 for all x, and in this case also minimum value is 0.


 


Hence minimum value of g(x) is clearly 0.


 


Hope it helps.

Hi Debdutta,


 


3-√8 is definitely not the right answer. You could have checked that on your own.


 


I have considered the word MAX in the question.


 


Clearly 0 is lesser than 3-√8, as 3-√8 is a positive number.


So minimum value has to be 0.


If somewhere you have seen the answer to this question as 3-√8, then it is wrong.


(Or else you have not mentioned some condition in the question)


Thanks.

Q. F( x + 2y, x – 2y) = xy , then F(X,Y) EQUALS- x 2 - y 2 /8 x 2 – y 2 /4 x 2 + y 2 /4 x 2 – y 2 /2
 
 
Ans: x 2 - y 2 /8 if, F(xy) = x 2 – y 2 /8, then F( x + 2y, x – 2y) = ( x+2y) 2 – (x-2y) 2 /8 = 4*x*2y/8 = xy Hence ans is x 2 - y 2 /8

The plane ax+by+cz=1 meets the co-ordinate axes in A,B and C. The centroid of the triangle is- (3a,3b,3c) (a/3, b/3, c/3) (3/a, 3/b, 3/c) (1/3a, 1/3b, 1/3c) What i am not understanding is...
 
 
The correct answer is (D). First of all, it should be clear that a,b,c are not the intercepts of the axes x,y,z resp. If that is true then (a,0,0), (0,b,0) and (0,0,c) should satisfy the eq...
