Now, the sum of the roots of this quadratic


equation is just the negative ratio of b and a.
Thus, the sum is -1.

Problem 22:
If r and s are the roots of x^2+x-1=0,
evaluate (r+s)^2
Solution:
The sum of the roots of quadratic equation is
again the negative ratio of b and a. Thus,
r+s=-1
This means that \boxed{(r+s)^2=1}.
Actually, this problem doesnt really make
sense at all. I was expecting a twist
somewhere. They might mistyped this
(r+s)^2 from this (r-s)^2. The latter is more
challenging and adds flavor to the problem.
Anyways, lets proceed.
Problem 23:
For what value(s) of m are the roots of (m1)x^2-mx+1=0 equal?
Solution:
Problem 21:

For a quadratic equation to have an equal


roots, the discriminant must be equal to 0.
Thus,

Compute the sum of all the roots of (x-2)


(x+1)+(x-1)(x+4)=0

D=0

Solution:

b^2-4ac=0

To find the sum of the roots, we expand the


equation,

(-m)^2-4(m-1)(1)=0
m^2-4m+4=0
(m-2)(m-2)=0
\boxed{m=2}
Problem 24:

(x-2)(x+1)+(x-1)(x+4)=0
x^2-x-2+x^2+3x-4=0
2x^2+2x-6=0

It is known that y varies as the square of x


and y=8 when x=1. What is y when x=8?

x^2+x-3=0

Solution:

Let k be the constant of proportionality. Since


y varies as the square of x we have,
y=kx^2

Solution:
We let k be the constant of proportionality
and we establish the equation.

Solving for k when y=8 and x=1,


y=\dfrac{k}{x}
8=k(1)^2

Solving for y when x=8,

IF x in increased by 25%, the value of x will


become 1.25x. Since the constant of
proportionality is constant. We equate the ks
of two situations.

y=kx^2

k_1=k_2

y=8(8)^2

x_1y_1=y_2x_2

y=8(64)

x_1y_1=y_2(1.25x_1)

y=8(64)

y_2=\dfrac{x_1y_1}{1.25x_1}

\boxed{y=512}

y_2=\dfrac{y_1}{1.25}

Problem 25:

y_2=0.8y_1

Suppose that x and y are inversely


proportional and are positive quantities. By
what percent does y decrease if x is
increased by 25%?

From 1, the value of y decreases to 0.8.


Thus, it decreased by 20%.

k=8
