B
C

\(2\sqrt{3}\)

 
D
Explanation.
Share Answer

\(\frac{\sqrt{3}}{\sqrt{3} - 1} + \frac{\sqrt{3}}{\sqrt{3} + 1}\)

= \(\frac{\sqrt{3}(\sqrt{3} + 1) + \sqrt{3}(\sqrt{3} - 1)}{(\sqrt{3} - 1)(\sqrt{3} + 1)}\)

= \(\frac{3 + \sqrt{3} + 3 - \sqrt{3}}{3 + \sqrt{3} - \sqrt{3} - 1}\)

= \(\frac{6}{2} = 3\)

\({x : x \in R, x = \frac{1}{2}}\) 
B
\(x: x \in R, x\neq \frac{1}{3}\)

\(x : x \in R, x = \frac{1}{3}\) 
D
\(x: x \in R\) 
Explanation.
Share Answer

The domain of a function refers to the regions where the function is defined or has a value on a particular region.

\(\frac{4x^{2} - 1}{\sqrt{9x^{2} + 1}}\) has a domain defined on all set of real numbers because the function is defined on the set of real numbers when the denominator \(\sqrt{9x^{2} + 1} \geq 0\).

\(\sqrt{9x^{2} + 1} \geq 0 \implies 9x^{2} + 1 \geq 0\) which because of the square sign has a value for all values of x, be it negative or positive.

Question 3
A
1, 3 
B
-1, -3 
C
1, -3 
D
-1, 3 
Explanation.
Share Answer

\(f(x) = 3x^{2} - 12x + 12\) and \(f(x) = 3\)

\(\therefore f(x) = 3 = 3x^{2} - 12x + 12 \implies 3x^{2} - 12x + 12 - 3 = 0\)

\(3x^{2} - 12x + 9 = 0; 3x^{2} - 9x - 3x + 9 = 0\)

\(3x(x - 3) - 3(x - 3) = (3x - 3)(x - 3) = 0\)

3x - 3 = 0 or x - 3 = 0

\(x = 1 or 3\)

Question 4
A
B
C
D
Explanation.
Share Answer

\((\sqrt{x} + 1) * (\sqrt{x} - 1) = 4 \implies \frac{\sqrt{x} + 1}{\sqrt{x} - 1} + \frac{\sqrt{x} - 1}{\sqrt{x} + 1} = 4\)

\(\frac{(\sqrt{x} + 1)(\sqrt{x} + 1) + (\sqrt{x} - 1)(\sqrt{x} - 1)}{(\sqrt{x} - 1)(\sqrt{x} + 1)}\)

= \(\frac{x + 2\sqrt{x} + 1 + x - 2\sqrt{x} + 1}{x - 1} \implies \frac{2x + 2}{x - 1} = 4\)

\(2x + 2 = 4x - 4 \therefore 4x - 2x = 2x = 2 + 4= 6\)

\(x = 3\)

Question 5
A
\(\frac{5\sqrt{10}}{4}\) 
B
\(4\sqrt{10}\) 
C
\(5\sqrt{10}\) 
D
\(\frac{4\sqrt{10}}{5}\) 
Explanation.
Share Answer

\(4x^{2} + 5kx + 10 = (2x + \sqrt{10})^{2}\)

Expanding the right hand side equation, we have

\(4x^{2} + 4x\sqrt{10} + 10\)

Comparing with the left hand side, we have

\(5k = 4\sqrt{10} \implies k = \frac{4}{5}\sqrt{10}\)

B
\(R \subset P\) 
C

\(n(P' \cap R) = 2\) 
Explanation.
Share Answer

All the statements are false except option C.

\(R \cap P = {3, 5, 7} and R \cap U = {2, 3, 5, 7, 11}\)

\(\therefore (R \cap P) \subset (R \cap U)\)

Question 8
A
\(a = b^{3} - 3\) 
B
\(a = b^{3} - 9\) 
C
\(a = 9b^{3}\) 
D
\(a = \frac{b^{3}}{9}\) 
Explanation.
Share Answer

\(\log_{3}a - 2 = 3\log_{3}b\)

Using the laws of logarithm, we know that \( 2 = 2\log_{3}3 = \log_{3}3^{2}\)

\(\therefore \log_{3}a - \log_{3}3^{2} = \log_{3}b^{3}\)

= \(\log_{3}(\frac{a}{3^{2}}) = \log_{3}b^{3} \implies \frac{a}{9} = b^{3}\)

\(\implies a = 9b^{3}\)

\(2x^{2} - 9x + 13 = 0\) 
C
\(2x^{2} - 9x - 13 = 0\) 
D
\(2x^{2} - 9x - 15 = 0\) 
Explanation.
Share Answer

Note: Given the sum of the roots and its product, we can get the equation using the formula:

\(x^{2} - (\alpha + \beta)x + (\alpha\beta) = 0\). This will be used later on in the course of our solution.

Given equation: \(2x^{2} - 5x + 6 = 0; a = 2, b = -5, c = 6\).

\(\alpha + \beta = \frac{-b}{a} = \frac{-(-5)}{2} = \frac{5}{2}\)

\(\alpha\beta = \frac{c}{a} = \frac{6}{2} = 3\)

Given the roots of the new equation as \((\alpha + 1)\) and \((\beta + 1)\), their sum and product will be

\((\alpha + 1) + (\beta + 1) = \alpha + \beta + 2 = \frac{5}{2} + 2 = \frac{9}{2} = \frac{-b}{a}\)

\((\alpha + 1)(\beta + 1) = \alpha\beta + \alpha + \beta + 1 = 3 + \frac{5}{2} + 1 = \frac{13}{2} = \frac{c}{a}\)

The new equation is given by: \(x^{2} - (\frac{-b}{a})x + (\frac{c}{a}) = 0\)

= \(x^{2} - (\frac{9}{2})x + \frac{13}{2} = 2x^{2} - 9x + 13 = 0\)

Question 10
A
\(\frac{x}{2(x - 2)} - \frac{5}{(x - 2)^{2}}\) 
B
\(\frac{5}{(x - 2)} + \frac{x}{2(x - 2)^{2}}\) 
C
\(\frac{1}{2(x - 2)} + \frac{5x}{2(x- 2)^{2}}\) 
D
\(\frac{-1}{2(x - 2)} + \frac{8x}{2(x - 2)^{2}}\) 
Explanation.
Share Answer

\(\frac{3x - 1}{(x - 2)^{2}} = \frac{A}{(x - 2)} + \frac{Bx}{(x - 2)^{2}}\)

\(\frac{3x - 1}{(x - 2)^{2}} = \frac{A(x - 2) + Bx}{(x - 2)^{2}}\)

Comparing, we have

\(3x - 1 = Ax - 2A + Bx \implies -2A = -1; A + B = 3\)

\(\therefore A = \frac{1}{2}; B = \frac{5}{2}\)

= \(\frac{1}{2(x - 2)} + \frac{5x}{2(x - 2)^{2}}\)
