2. Represent the following situations in the form of quadratic equations: (i) The area of a rectangular plot is 528 m2. The length of the plot (in metres) is one more than twice its breadth. We need to find the length and breadth of the plot. (ii) The product of two consecutive positive integers is 306. We need to find the integers. (iii) Rohan’s mother is 26 years older than him. The product of their ages (in years) 3 years from now will be 360. We would like to find Rohan’s present age. (iv) A train travels a distance of 480 km at a uniform speed. If the speed had been 8 km/h less, then it would have taken

(i) Let us consider, Breadth of the rectangular plot = x m Thus, the length of the plot = (2x + 1) m. As we know, Area of rectangle = length × breadth = 528 m2 Putting the value of length and breadth of the plot in the formula, we get, (2x + 1) × x = 528 ⇒ 2x2 + x =528 ⇒ 2x2 + x – 528 = 0 Therefore, the length and breadth of plot, satisfies the quadratic equation, 2x2 + x – 528 = 0, which is the required representation of the problem mathematically. (ii) Let us consider, The first integer number = x Thus, the next consecutive positive integer will be = x + 1 Product of two consecutive integers = x × (x +1) = 306 ⇒ x2 + x = 306 ⇒ x2 + x – 306 = 0 Therefore, the two integers x and x+1, satisfies the quadratic equation, x2 + x – 306 = 0, which is the required representation of the problem mathematically. (iii) Let us consider, Age of Rohan’s = x years Therefore, as per the given question, Rohan’s mother’s age = x + 26 After 3 years, Age of Rohan’s = x + 3 Age of Rohan’s mother will be = x + 26 + 3 = x + 29 The product of their ages after 3 years will be equal to 360, such that (x + 3)(x + 29) = 360 ⇒ x2 + 29x + 3x + 87 = 360 ⇒ x2 + 32x + 87 – 360 = 0 ⇒ x2 + 32x – 273 = 0 Therefore, the age of Rohan and his mother, satisfies the quadratic equation, x2 + 32x – 273 = 0, which is the required representation of the problem mathematically. (iv) Let us consider, The speed of train = x km/h And Time taken to travel 480 km = 480/x km/hr As per second condition, the speed of train = (x – 8) km/h Also given, the train will take 3 hours to cover the same distance. Therefore, time taken to travel 480 km = 480/(x+3) km/h As we know, Speed × Time = Distance Therefore, (x – 8)(480/(x + 3) = 480 ⇒ 480 + 3x – 3840/x – 24 = 480 ⇒ 3x – 3840/x = 24 ⇒ 3x2 – 8x – 1280 = 0 Therefore, the speed of the train, satisfies the quadratic equation, 3x2 – 8x – 1280 = 0, which is the required representation of the problem mathematically.
