the cost of fuel for running a bus is proportional to the square of the speed generated in km/hr. it costs Rs.48 per hour when the bus is mooving at the speed of 20km/hr .what is the most economical speed if the fixed charges are Rs.108 for an hour,over and above the running charges.

Answers : (1)

Let cost of fuel be ‘P’ Rs/hr & spped of vehicle be ‘v’ in km/hr.
P \alpha v^{2}
P = av^{2}, a = constant
48 = a(20)^{2}
a = \frac{48}{20^{2}} = \frac{3}{25}
P = \frac{3}{25}v^{2}
There is something missing in the question. How much distance bus need to cover should mention. Otherwise, at
P = 108 (\frac{Rs.}{hr})
108 = \frac{3}{25}v^{2}
v = 30 (\frac{km}{hr})
Thanks & Regards

If a polynomial P(x) is divided by x-a, x-b, x-c, we get a,b,c as remainders respectively (x€R). Then what will be the remainder when P(x) is divided by (x-a)(x-b)(x-c)?
Using Remiander theorem f(a) is the remainder when f(x) is divided by x-a 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...

Note that P(a) =a, P(b) = b, and P(c) = c. Hence if we consider the polynomial Q(x) = P(x) – x, we see that Q(a) = Q(b) = Q(c) = 0. By Factor theorem we conclude (x-a)(x-b)(x-c) is a factor ...
