28. Solve each of the following equations by completing the square. (a) 2 x2 +3 x —4=0. (c) 3 x2 – X – 10=0. (6) 7 x2—8 x–9=0. (d) Væ+1+x=11. 29. The solutions of the quadratic equation for a problem do not always both satisfy the problem itself. Explain this. Examine to see whether it is illustrated in the working of the following problem: Find the positive integer such that the square of it added to six times the number gives 27. 30. Explain how one goes to work to draw the graph of a given quadratic equation. 31. In how many points must the graph of a quadratic cut the XX axis in case the two solutions are real? What happens to the 'graph in case the two solutions are imaginary? Give simple illustrations. 32. What especial interest attaches to the points mentioned in Ex. 31 in case such points are present ? 33. Draw the graph of the quadratic x2—4 x=0. 34. The sum of two numbers is 29 and the sum of their squares is 505. Find the numbers. 35. A string is just long enough to go around a certain square. If 3 feet are cut off the string, it will then just reach round a square whose area is 4 that of the first square. How long is the string ?
