About WBJEE Exam
WBJEE is a common entrance examinations held at state level for admission to the Undergraduate Level Engineering and Medical courses in the State of West Bengal. The Mathematics section of WBJEE 2014 engineering entrance exam consists of 80 questions.
34. If α, β are the roots of ax2 + bx + c = 0 (a≠0) and α + h, β + h are the roots of px2 +qx+r = 0 (p≠0) then the ratio of the squares of their discriminants is
We have the quadratic equation,
ax2 + bx + c = 0
of which α and β are the roots
35. Let f(x) = 2x2+5x+1. If we write f(x) as
f(x) = a(x + 1)(x – 2) +b(x – 2)(x – 1)+c(x – 1)(x + 1) for real numbers a,b,c then
(A) there are infinite number of choices for a,b,c
(B) only one choice for a but infinite number of choices for b and c
(C) exactly one choice for each of a,b,c
(D) more than one but finite number of choices for a,b,c
f(x) = 2x2+5x+1 …(1)
Given, f(x) can be written as:
f(x) = a(x + 1)(x – 2) +b(x – 2)(x – 1)+c(x – 1)(x + 1)
f(x) = a(x2 –x - 2) +b(x2 - 3x + 2) + c(x2 - 1)
f(x) = (a + b + c)x2 - (a + 3b)x -2a + 2b – c …(2)
From (1) and (2)
a + b + c = 2 …(3)
a + 3b = - 5 …(4)
-2a + 2b – c = 1 …(5)
Adding (3), (4), (5)
a + b + c + a + 3b -2a + 2b – c = 2 – 5 + 1
6b = -2
Putting value of b in (4) we get the value of a
Again putting the value of a and b in equation (3) we get the value of c.
So, we have exactly one choice for each of a,b,c.
