**Quadratic Equation Shortcuts for Bank Exams **

Here, we are explaining the traditional methods and shortcut methods to solve Quadratic Equation problems in step by step methods.

#### In the following questions, two equations numbered I and II are given. You have to solve both the equations and

Give answer (1) if x>y

Give answer (2) if x ≥ y

Give answer (3) if x < y

Give answer (4) if x ≤y

Give answer (5) if x=y (Or) the relationship cannot be established.

**Problem 1**

**1.) I. 40x**^{2} – 47x +12 =0.

^{2}– 47x +12 =0.

** II. 5y**^{2} – 51y + 54 =0.

^{2}– 51y + 54 =0.

**Normal Method: (Factorization Method)**

**I. 40x ^{2} – 47x +12 =0**

40x^{2} – 32x-15x +12 =0

8x(5x– 4) – 3(5x -4) =0

(8x-3) (5x-4)=0

8x-3 =0, 5x-4 =0

**X= 3/8, 4/5.**

**II. 5y ^{2} – 51y + 54 =0.**

5y

^{2}– 45y -6y + 54 =0.

5y (y-9) -6(y-9)=0,

(5y-6 ) (y-9) =0

**6/5, 9**

**Clearly, x < y Answer (1)**

**Quadratic Equation Shortcut Trick to solve :40x ^{2} – 47x +12 =0 **

1) split the middle term (X coefficient). so as to get the product of two numbers should be (12 *40) =** 480**,

2) the sum of the two numbers is **-47** and

3) Change the sign of split numbers i.e -32, -15 becomes +32, +15.

4) Divide +32 and +15 with X^2 coefficient 1.e. 40

5) Then we get** x = 4/5, 3/8.**

Apply the same procedure to second equation and find **y** value.

Find the relationship between x and y values to compare two quadratic equations.

** **

**Clearly, x < y Answer (1) **

#### 2) I. 22x^{2} – x -6 =0.

#### II. 63y^{2} – 11y -40 =0.

**Factorization Method:**

**I. 22x ^{2} – x -6 =0.**

- 22x
^{2}– 12x + 11x -6 =0. - 11x( 2x+1) – 6(2x+1) =0
- (11x-6)(2x+1)=0

- (7y+5) (9y-8) =0,

**y = -5/7, 8/9.**

Here we have to compare two fractions to know the relation between x and y that means x=y or x> y or x>y. **Shortcut Trick to compare two fractions **

#### Quadratic Equation Short Trick Explanation:

1) Split the middle term (X coefficient) i.e. (-1) in such a way to get the product of two numbers should be (22 * (-6)) =** 132**,

2) the sum of the two numbers is **-1** and

3) Change the sign of split numbers i.e -12, +11 becomes +12, -11.

4) Divide +12 and -11 with X^2 coefficient 1.e. 22

5) Then we get** x = 6/11, 1/2.**

Apply the same procedure to second equation and find **y** value observe the above image by reading the explanation you can understand the shortcut trick.

**Formula: **

### Quadratic Equations Factorization Method:

Quadratic Equations solving by using either Formula or using factorization method is the traditional solving methods in maths but using Quadratic Equation Shortcut Tricks For Bank Exams, we get answers quickly.

**Problem 1:**

**I. x² – 11x + 30 = 0**

**II. 2y² – 9y + 10 =0**

**Normal Method:**

(1) x² – 11x + 30 = 0

x² – 6x – 5x + 30 = 0

x (x-6) -5 (x- 6) = 0

(x-6) (x-5) = 0

=> x = 6, 5.

(2) 2y² – 9y + 10 =0

2y² – 4y – 5y + 10 =0

2y (y-2) -5 (y-2) =0

=> y = 2, 5/2.

Therefore, **x > y**

**Problem 2:**

**I. 15x² + 8x + 1 =0**

**II. 3y² + 14y + 8 = 0**

Normal Method:

(1) 15x² + 8x + 1 =0

15x² + 5x + 3x + 1 =0

5x (3x+1) + 1(3x+1)) = 0

(5x+1) (3x+1) = 0

=> x = -1/5, -1/3.

(2) 3y² + 14y + 8 = 0

3y² + 12y +2y + 8 = 0

3y (y+4) +2(y+4) =0

**II. 2y² + 17y + 30 = 0**

Normal Method:

(1) 8x² + 25x + 3 =0

8x² + 24x + x + 3 =0

8x (x+3)+1(x+3)) = 0

(8x+1)(x+3) = 0

=> x = -1/8, -3

(2) 2y² + 17y + 30 = 0

2y² + 12y +5y + 30 = 0

2y (y+6) +5(y+6) =0
