### SSC CHSL ALGEBRA QUESTIONS

Q.1: If a + b = p, ab = q, then (a4 + b4 ) is equal to:
(A) p4 – 4p2q + q2
(B) p4 – 4p2q2 + 2q2
(C) p4 – 2p2q2 + q2
(D) p4 – 4p2q + 2q2

Ans : (D) p4 – 4p2q + 2q2
a + b = p , ab = q
(a + b)2 = p2
a2 + 2ab + b2 = p2
a2 + b2 = p2 – 2q
(a2 + b2)2 = (p2 – 2q)2
a4 + b4 + 2a2b2 = p4 – 4p2q + 4q2 [ab = q, a2 b2 = q2]
a4 + b4 = p4 – 4p2q + 2q2

Q.11: If x + y = 27 and x2 + y2 = 425 , then the value of (x – y)2 will be:
(A) 121
(B) 225
(C) 169
(D) 144

Ans : (A) 121
x + y = 27
x2 + y2 = 425
(x + y)2 = (27)2
x2 + y2 + 2xy = 729
2xy = 729 – 425
2xy = 304
(x – y)2 = x2 + y2 – 2xy
= 425 – 304
(x – y)2 = 121

(A) -24
(B)
(C)
(D) -26

Ans : (D) -26
(a + b + c)2 = a2 + b2 +c2 + 2 (ab + bc + ca)
576 + 2 x 50
(a + b + c)2 = 676
a + b + c =
a + b + c < 0
so a+b+c = -26

(3x + 5y)2 = (14)2
9x2 + 25y2 + 30xy = 196
9x2 + 25y2 + 30 x 6 = 196
9x2 + 25y2 = 196 – 180
9x2 + 25y2 = 16

Q.16: If a – b = 7 and a2 + b2 = 169 where a,b >0 , then the value of 3 a+b is:
(A) 41
(B) 46
(C) 38
(D) 44

Ans : (A) 41
a – b = 7
(a – b)2 = 72
a2 + b2 – 2ab = 49
169 – 2ab = 49
2ab = 169 – 49
2ab = 120
ab = 60 [12 x 5]
a = 12, b = 5
3a + b
= 3 x 12 + 5
= 41

Q.17: If a + 5b = 25 and ab = 20 , then one of the values of (a-5 b) is:
(A) 16
(B) 15
(C) 13
(D) 14

a + 5b = 25, ab = 20
Put a = 20
b = 1
so a – 5b
= 20 – 5 x 1 = 15

Q.18: If , then what will be the value of ?
(A) 10406
(B) 10402
(C) 9602
(D) 9606

(C) 746
(D) 764

Ans : (D) 764
7x – 10y = 8
(7x – 10y)2 = (8)2
49x2 + 100y2 – 140xy = 64
49x2 + 100y2 = 64 + 140xy
= 64 + 140xy
= 64 + 140 x 5
= 764

(A) -150
(B) 75
(C) -175
(D) 250

Ans : (C) -175
(x – 2y) x (5x + y)3
(x – 2y) x [ 125x3 + y3 + 15xy (5x + y)
(x – 2y) x [ 125x3 + y3 + 75x2y + 15xy2 ]
coefficient of x3y

(a + b + c)2 = ( 2 )2
a2+b2+c2 + 2(ab + bc + ca) = 4
a2+b2+c2 + 2 x(-1) = 4
a2+b2+c2 = 6
a3+b3+c3 – 3abc = (a+b+c) [(a2+b2+c2) – (ab+bc+ca)]
= 2[6 – (-1)]
= 2 x 7 = 14

(D) 1

Ans : (B) -1
a+b+c = 5
(a+b+c)2 = (5)2
a2+b2+c2 +2(ab+bc+ca) = 25
27 + 2(ab+bc+ca) = 25
ab+bc+ca = -1
a3+b3+c3 -3abc = (a+b+c) [(a2+b2+c2 -(ab+bc+ca)
125 – 3abc = 5 [27 – (-1)
= 5 x 28
125 – 3abc = 140
3abc = -15
abc = -5

(A) 5002
(B) 5008
(C) 5006
(D) 5004

Ans : (D) 5004
