Question 24: \displaystyle \sqrt{5} x^2 + x + \sqrt{5} = 0

Answer:

\displaystyle \sqrt{5} x^2 + x + \sqrt{5} = 0

Comparing the given equation with general form of quadratic equation \displaystyle ax^2 + bx + c = 0 we get,

\displaystyle \Rightarrow a = \sqrt{5}, \ b= 1 \text{ and } c = \sqrt{5}

Substituting these values in

\displaystyle \alpha = \frac{-b + \sqrt{b^2 - 4ac} }{2a} \text{ and } \beta = \frac{-b - \sqrt{b^2 - 4ac} }{2a}  

\displaystyle \Rightarrow \alpha = \frac{-1 + \sqrt{1 - 4 \times \sqrt{5} \times \sqrt{5}} }{2 \times \sqrt{5}} \text{ and } \beta = \frac{-1 - \sqrt{1 - 4 \times \sqrt{5} \times \sqrt{5}} }{2 \times \sqrt{5}}  

\displaystyle \Rightarrow \alpha = \frac{-1 + \sqrt{-19} }{2\sqrt{5}} \text{ and } \beta = \frac{-1 - \sqrt{-19} }{2\sqrt{5}}  

\displaystyle \Rightarrow \alpha = \frac{-1 + \sqrt{19} i }{2\sqrt{5}} \text{ and } \beta = \frac{-1 - \sqrt{19} i }{2\sqrt{5}}  

\displaystyle \text{Hence the roots of the equation are } \frac{-1 \pm \sqrt{19} i }{2\sqrt{5}}

Question 25: \displaystyle -x^2 + x - 2 = 0

Answer:

\displaystyle -x^2 + x - 2 = 0

Comparing the given equation with general form of quadratic equation \displaystyle ax^2 + bx + c = 0 we get,

\displaystyle \Rightarrow a = -1, \ b= 1 \text{ and } c = -2

Substituting these values in

\displaystyle \alpha = \frac{-b + \sqrt{b^2 - 4ac} }{2a} \text{ and } \beta = \frac{-b - \sqrt{b^2 - 4ac} }{2a}  

\displaystyle \Rightarrow \alpha = \frac{-1 + \sqrt{1 - 4 \times (-1) \times (-2)} }{2 \times (-1)} \text{ and } \beta = \frac{-1 - \sqrt{-1 - 4 \times (-1) \times (-1)} }{2 \times (-1)}  

\displaystyle \Rightarrow \alpha = \frac{-1 + \sqrt{-7} }{-2} \text{ and } \beta = \frac{-1 - \sqrt{-7} }{-2}  

\displaystyle \Rightarrow \alpha = \frac{-1 + \sqrt{7} i }{-2} \text{ and } \beta = \frac{-1 - \sqrt{7} i }{-2}  

\displaystyle \text{Hence the roots of the equation are } \frac{-1 \pm \sqrt{7} i }{-2} \text{ or } \frac{1 \mp \sqrt{7} i }{2}

\displaystyle \text{Question 26: } x^2 - 2 x + \frac{3}{2} = 0

Answer:

\displaystyle x^2 - 2 x + \frac{3}{2} = 0

Comparing the given equation with general form of quadratic equation \displaystyle ax^2 + bx + c = 0 we get,

\displaystyle \Rightarrow a = 1, \ b= -2 \text{ and } c = \frac{3}{2}

Substituting these values in

\displaystyle \alpha = \frac{-b + \sqrt{b^2 - 4ac} }{2a} \text{ and } \beta = \frac{-b - \sqrt{b^2 - 4ac} }{2a}  

\displaystyle \Rightarrow \alpha = \frac{2 + \sqrt{(-2)^2 - 4 \times 1 \times (\frac{3}{2})} }{2 \times 1} \text{ and } \frac{2 - \sqrt{(-2)^2 - 4 \times 1 \times (\frac{3}{2})} }{2 \times 1}  

\displaystyle \Rightarrow \alpha = \frac{2 + \sqrt{-2} }{2} \text{ and } \beta = \frac{2 - \sqrt{-2} }{2}  

\displaystyle \Rightarrow \alpha = \frac{2 + \sqrt{2} i }{2} \text{ and } \beta = \frac{2 - \sqrt{2} i }{2}  

\displaystyle \Rightarrow \alpha = 1 + \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} i \text{ and } 1 - \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} i

\displaystyle \text{Hence the roots of the equation are } 1 + \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} i \text{ and } 1 - \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} i

\displaystyle \text{Question 27: } 3x^2 - 4x + \frac{20}{3} = 0

Answer:

\displaystyle 3x^2 - 4x + \frac{20}{3} = 0

Comparing the given equation with general form of quadratic equation \displaystyle ax^2 + bx + c = 0 we get,

\displaystyle \Rightarrow a = 3, \ b= -4 \text{ and } c = \frac{20}{3}

Substituting these values in

\displaystyle \alpha = \frac{-b + \sqrt{b^2 - 4ac} }{2a} \text{ and } \beta = \frac{-b - \sqrt{b^2 - 4ac} }{2a}  

\displaystyle \Rightarrow \alpha = \frac{4 + \sqrt{16 - 4 \times 3 \times \frac{20}{3} } }{2 \times 3} \text{ and } \beta = \frac{4 - \sqrt{16 - 4 \times 3 \times \frac{20}{3}} }{2 \times 3}  

\displaystyle \Rightarrow \alpha = \frac{4 + \sqrt{-64} }{6} \text{ and } \beta = \frac{4 - \sqrt{-64} }{6}  

\displaystyle \Rightarrow \alpha = \frac{4 + 8 i }{6} \text{ and } \beta = \frac{4 - 8i }{6}  

\displaystyle \Rightarrow \alpha = \frac{2 + 4 i }{3} \text{ and } \beta = \frac{2 - 4i }{3}  

\displaystyle \text{Hence the roots of the equation are } \beta = \frac{2 \pm 4i }{3}
