    (A) a2:p2

     (B) a:p2

    (C) a2:p

    (D) a:2p

    Ans: (A)


    We have the quadratic equation,

    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

    Ans: (C)


    We have,

    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.
