(a + b + c)^{2} = a^{2} + b^{2} + c^{2} + 2(ab + bc + ca)
138 + 2 * 131 = 400
(a + b + c) = √400 = 20Incorrect
Let the numbers be a, b and C. Then,
a^{2} + b^{2} + c^{2} = 138 and (ab + bc + ca) = 131
(a + b + c)^{2} = a^{2} + b^{2} + c^{2} + 2(ab + bc + ca)

24. Question
Find the value of a/b + b/a, if a and b are the roots of the quadratic equation x^{2} + 8x + 4 = 0?
Correct
a/b + b/a = (a^{2} + b^{2})/ab = (a^{2} + b^{2} + a + b)/ab
= [(a + b)^{2} – 2ab]/ab
a + b = 8/1 = 8
ab = 4/1 = 4
Hence a/b + b/a = [(8)^{2} – 2(4)]/4 = 56/4 = 14.Incorrect
a/b + b/a = (a^{2} + b^{2})/ab = (a^{2} + b^{2} + a + b)/ab
= [(a + b)^{2} – 2ab]/ab
a + b = 8/1 = 8
ab = 4/1 = 4

A man could buy a certain number of notebooks for Rs.300. If each notebook cost is Rs.5 more, he could have bought 10 notebooks less for the same amount. Find the price of each notebook?
Correct
Let the price of each note book be Rs.x.
Let the number of note books which can be brought for Rs.300 each at a price of Rs.x be y.
Hence xy = 300
=> y = 300/x
(x + 5)(y – 10) = 300 => xy + 5y – 10x – 50 = xy
=>5(300/x) – 10x – 50 = 0 => 150 + x^{2} + 5x = 0
multiplying both sides by 1/10x
=> x^{2} + 15x – 10x – 150 = 0
=> x(x + 15) – 10(x + 15) = 0
=> x = 10 or 15
As x>0, x = 10.Incorrect
Let the price of each note book be Rs.x.
Let the number of note books which can be brought for Rs.300 each at a price of Rs.x be y.
Hence xy = 300
=> y = 300/x
(x + 5)(y – 10) = 300 => xy + 5y – 10x – 50 = xy
=>5(300/x) – 10x – 50 = 0 => 150 + x^{2} + 5x = 0
multiplying both sides by 1/10x
=> x^{2} + 15x – 10x – 150 = 0
=> x(x + 15) – 10(x + 15) = 0
=> x = 10 or 15
As x>0, x = 10.
