CHAPTER 4 —– Quadratic Equations

Concept of Chapter

1.       A polynomial of degree 2 is called a quadratic polynomial. Its general form is $ax^2 + bx + c$, where $a, b, c \in R$ such that $a\neq 0$ and x is a variable.

2.       If $p(x) = ax^2 + bx + c$ is a quadratic polynomial and let $\alpha$ be a real number. Then, $a\alpha^2 + b\alpha + c$ is known as the value of the quadratic polynomial $p(x)$ and it is denoted by $p(\alpha)$. i.e., $p(\alpha) = a\alpha^2 + b\alpha + c$.

3. A real number $’ \alpha ‘$ is called a zero of a quadratic polynomial $p(x)=ax^2+bx+c$ if $ p(\alpha)=0$

4.       If $p(x)$ is a quadratic polynomial, then $p(x) = 0$ is called a quadratic equation. Its general form is $ax^2 + bx + c$ , where $a, b, c \in R$ and $a\neq 0$.

5.       If $p(x) = 0$ is a quadratic equation, then the zeros of the polynomial $p(x)$ are called the roots of the equation $p(x) = 0$.

6.       A quadratic equation has two roots, which may be :

          (i) real and distinct or

          (ii) real and coincident or

          (iii)    imaginary (not to be taken is this class)

7.       Solution of quadratic equation by factorization. The following steps should be taken :

          (i) Write all terms on one side by making R.H.S. zero.

          (ii) Resolve in linear factors of the type (ax + b)(cx + d) of the terms on the L.H.S.

          (iii)    Put each factor equal to zero.

          (iv)    Get the required solution.

          Remarks : If the product of two polynomials is zero, then each of them is zero.

          i.e., if (ax + b)(cx + d) = 0, then either ax + b = 0 or cx + d = 0.

8.       A quadratic equation can be solved by completing the square.

9. If $ax^2+bx+c=0$ , $a,b,c \in R$ and $a \neq 0 $ , then this is known as quadratic formula.

10.     Nature of the roots of quadratic equation : In the equation $ax^2 + bx + c = 0$ , $a, b, c \in R$ , $a\neq 0$ , $b^2 – 4ac$ determine whether the quadratic equation $ax^2 + bx + c = 0$ has real roots or not, $b^2 – 4ac$ is called the discriminant of this quadratic equation.

          So, a quadratic equation $ax^2 + bx + c = 0$.

          (i) has no real roots if $b^2 – 4ac \lt 0$.

          (ii) has two equal real roots if $b^2 – 4ac = 0$.

          (iii)    has two distinct real roots if $b^2 – 4ac \gt 0$.

Concept of Chapter

1.         A sequence is an arrangement of numbers in a definite order according to some rule.

2.         An arithmetic progression is a sequence in which terms increase or decrease regularly by the same constant. This constant is called the common difference of the progression (series).

            In other words, an arithmetic progression is that list of numbers in which the first term is given and each term is obtained by adding a fixed number d to the preceding term.

            This fixed number d is called the common difference. This can be positive, negative or zero.

3.         We usually denote the first term of an AP by a, the common difference by d and the last term by l.

4.         If the first term is a and the common difference is d, then a, a + d, a + 2d, a + 3d, ….. represents an arithmetic progression for different values of a and d. This is the general form of an AP.

5.         In an AP,d = a2 – a1 = a3 – a2 = a4 – a3 = ….. = an – an – 1, where an denotes the nth term.

6.         In general, if an + 1 – an, is same for different values of n or in other words, an + 1 – an is independent of n, then the given list of numbers form an AP.

7.         The nth term of an AP with first term a and common difference d is an = a + (n – 1)d, an is also called the general term of the AP. If there are n terms in the AP, then an represents the last term l.

8.         The sum of first n terms of an AP is given by.

(i)$\,S_n\,=\,(\frac{n}{2})(\,a\,+\,l\,)$  , where a is the first term and l is the last term.            

(ii)$\,S_n\,=\,(\frac{n}{2})(\,2a\,+\,(n-1)d\,)$ , where a is the first term and d is the common difference.

            (ii)  Converse of basic proportionality theorem : If a line divides any two sides of a triangle in the same ratio, then the line must be parallel to the third side.

7.         Criteria for Similarity of Triangles :

            (ii)  SSS-Criterion of similarity of triangles : If the corresponding sides of two triangles are proportional, then they are similar.

            (iii) SAS-Criterion of similarity of triangles : If in two triangles, one pair of corresponding sides are proportional and the included angles are equal, then the two triangles are similar.

8.         Areas of two Similar Triangles : The ratio of the areas of two similar triangles is equal to the ratio of the squares of any two corresponding sides.

9.         Pythagoras Theorem : In a right-angled triangles, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.

10.       Converse of Phythagoras Theorem : In a triangle, if the square of one side is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides, then the angle opposite to the first side is a right angle.

11.       If a perpendicular is drawn from the vertex of the right angle of a right triangle to the hypotenuse then triangles of both sides of the perpendicular are similar to the whole triangle and to each other.

1.         Trigonometric Ratio : We shall now define certain ratios involving the sides of a right triangle, and cell them trigonometric ratios.

Right angle triangle ABC right angle at B

            The trigonometric ratios of the angle A in right triangle ABC are defined as $$SinA=\frac{Perpandicular\,opposite\,to\,angle\,A}{Hypotenuse}=\frac{BC}{AC}$$ $$CosA=\frac{Side\,adjusent\,to\,angle\,A}{Hypotenuse}=\frac{AB}{AC}$$ $$tanA=\frac{Perpandicular\,opposite\,to\,angle\,A} {Side\,adjusent\,to\,angle\,A} =\frac{BC}{AB}$$ $$CosecA=\frac{Hypotenuse}{Perpandicular\,opposite\,to\,angle\,A}=\frac{AC}{BC}$$ $$SecA=\frac{Hypotenuse}{Side\,adjusent\,to\,angle\,A}=\frac{AC}{AB}$$ $$CotA=\frac{Side\,adjusent\,to\,angle\,A} {Perpandicular\,opposite\,to\,angle\,A} =\frac{AB}{BC}$$

2. Relationship between Trigonometrical Ratios

            From the definition of t-ratios are




3.         Thevalue of the trigonometric ratios of an angle does not depend on the size of the triangle. It only depends on the angle.

4.         Since hypotenuse is the longest side in a right triangle, therefore, the value of sin A or cos A is always less than or equal to 1.

Value of trigonometry functions

5.         Trigonometric Ratios of Complementary Angles : Two angles are said to be complementary if their sum equals 90°. In $\Delta ABC$ , right angled at B, can you see that $\angle BAC$ (or $\angle A)$ and $\angle ACB$ (or $\angle C$) are complementary angles, i.e., $\angle A + \angle C$ = 90° ? (Because $\angle A + \angle C $ = 180° – $\angle B$ = 180° – 90° = 90°).

            For all values of angle A lying between 0° and 90°, we have             sin (90° – A) = cos A; cos (90° – A) = sin A; tan (90° – A) = cot A ; cot (90° – A) = tan A ; sec (90° – A) = cosec A ; cosec (90° – A) = sec A

            Note : (i) Add co, if that is not there. Remove co, if that is there.

            (ii)  tan 0° = 0 = cot 90°, sec 0° = 1 = cosec 90° and sec 90°, cosec 0°, tan 90° and cot 0° are not defined.

6. Trigonometric Identities : We may recall that an equation is called an identity when it is true for all values of the variables involved. Similarly, an equation involving trigonometric ratios of an angle is called a trigonometric identity if it is true for all values of the angle.

For any acute angle A, we have

            (i)   sin2 A + cos2 A = 1, sin2 A = 1 – cos2 A, cos2 A = 1 – sin2 A

            (ii)  1 + tan2 A = sec2 A, tan2 A = sec2 A – 1, sec2 A – tan2 A = 1

            (iii) 1 + cot2 A = cosec2 A, cot2 A = cosec2 A – 1, cosec2 A – cot2 A = 1

            2.   The angle of elevation and the angle of depression both are measured along the horizontal.   

          3.    To determine one side (unknown side) of a right angled triangle, other side (known side) and acute angle are given, we combine known (given) with unknown (required) and use the suitable t-ratio of the given angle.

$i.e\;\frac{Known\,side}{Unknown\,side}=\frac{Given\,side}{Required\,side}$= Suitable t ration of given angle.

NCERT Chapter 13 Exercise Solutions.

NCERT Exemplar Chapter 13 Solutions


1.         MEAN :: We have the following techniques to evaluate the mean of a given data.

Case I: Simple distribution or Individual observation. The mean of a set of numbers $x_1 , x_2 , x_3 ,………x_n $ is denoted by $ \bar x $ and is defined as $$\bar x =\frac{x_1+x_2+x_3…….+x_n}{n} =\frac {\sum_{r=1}^{n} x_i}{n}$$

Case II: Mean of a Discrete, i.e., Ungrouped Frequency Distribution.

Formula 1. If $x_1,x_2,x_3,……,x_n$ are the values of a variable with frequencies $f_1,f_2,f_3,……..,f_n$ , then $$\bar x =\frac{x_1f_1+x_2f_2+x_3f_3+…..+x_nf_n}{f_1+f_2+f_3+……..+f_n}=\frac{\sum_{r=1}^{n} x_if_i}{\sum_{r=1}{n} f_i} $$

Formula 2. Assumed mean method . If the frequencies and the values of the variable are quite large numbers, the product $f_ix_i$ will also be large. Then, a short cut method has been devised as $$\bar x = a+\Bigl( \frac{\sum_{r=1}^{n} f_id_i}{\sum_{r=1}^{n} f_i}\Bigr) \; where\,d_i=(x_i-a)$$ And ‘a’ is the assumed mean.

Formula 3. Step deviation mathod $d_i’s$ are found to be divisible by a common number h (say), then we can make the calculation easier by putting $$u_i=\frac{x_i-a}{h}\; \forall i=1,2,3…..n $$

where a is the assumed mean, h is the length of the class interval the mean $$ \bar x = a + h\Bigl( \frac{\sum_{r=1}^{n} u_if_i}{\sum_{r=1}^{n} f_i} \Bigr)$$ where ‘a’ is the assumed mean, h is the length of the class interval and $u_i=\frac{x_i-a}{h}$

Case III: Mean of Continuous or Grouped Frequency Distribution.             In this case also, the mean is computed by applying any of the formulae given for discrete frequency distribution. The values $x_1 , x_2 , x_3 ,……,x_n$ are taken as the mid-values or class marks of the various class intervals. If the given frequency distribution is inclusive, then it should first be converted to exclusive distribution.

2. Median :: Case I: For an individual series . Arrange the raw data in ascending or descending order. Then the following rule gives the median.

When n, the number of observations, is odd, then median is $\Bigl( \frac{n+1}{2} \Bigr) $ observation.

When n, the number of observations, is even , then median is the mean of $\Bigl( \frac{n}{2} \Bigr)^{th} $ and $\Bigl( \frac{n}{2}+1 \Bigr)^{th} $ observation.

Case II: For a frequency distribution (i) When the series is discrete.

Arrange the data in ascending or descending order of magnitude and then prepare the cumulative frequency table. Let $n$ be the total frequency.   The if $n$ is odd, median is the value of $\Bigl( \frac{n+1}{2} \Bigr)^{th} $  item, and if $n$ is even, median is the mean of the values of $\Bigl( \frac{n}{2} \Bigr)^{th} $ and $\Bigl( \frac{n}{2}+1 \Bigr)^{th} $ items.

(ii) When the series is continuous. Median of the grouped data is obtained using the formula $$ Median =l+\Bigl( \frac{\frac{n}{2}-cf}{f} \Bigr) h $$

Where , $l$=lower limit of median class.

$n$=number of observations

$cf$=Cumulative frequency of class preceding the median class.

$f$ = frequency of median class

$h$ = class size.

3. Mode :: The value of the variable which occurs most frequently in a distribution is called mode.

The mode for grouped data is found by formula :$$ Mode = l +\Bigl( \frac{f_1-f_2}{2f_1-f_0-f_2} \Bigr) h$$

Where $l$=Lower limit of the modal class.

$h$ = Size of the class interval.

$f_1$ = frequency of the modal class.

$f_0$ = frequency of the class preceding the modal class.

$f_2$ = frequency of the class succeeding the modal class.


            The mode is approximately = 3 median – 2 mean


            (i)  Arithmetic mean is based on all the observations. It is not useful if there are some extreme values in the data.

            (ii) Mode is more useful to business persons who may not be interested in the magnitude but only if the most common value of fashionable value. For example, while ordering for shows of various sizes for resale, a modal size will be more appropriate.

            (iii)  Median is useful when there are open and extreme classes, because median is not affected by extreme open values.

6.         Representing a cumulative frequency distribution graphically as a cumulative frequency curve, or an ogive of the less than type and of the more than type.

7.         The median of grouped data can be obtained graphically as the x-coordinate of the point of intersection of the two ogives for this data.

1.         A random experiment is an experiment in which;

            (i)  all the outcomes of the experiment are known in advance, and

            (ii) the exact outcome of any specific performance of the experiment is unpredictable, i.e., not known in advance.

2.         The set of all possible outcomes of a random experiment is known as a sample space associated with the random experiment.

3.         An event is something that happens.

4.         Ordinarily speaking, that probability of an event denotes the likelihood of its happening.

5.         Definition of probability of an event: If there are n events associated with a random experiment and m of them are favorable to an event A, then the probability of happening of A is denoted by P(A) and is defined as he ratio $\frac{m}{n}$.

Thus , $P(A) =\Bigl( \frac{Number\,of\,favorable\,outcome}{Total\,Number\,of\,possible\,outcomes} \Bigr)$ i.e $P(A)=\frac{m}{n}$

8.         An event which is certain (sure) to happen has a probability of 1 (or 100%). For example, the probability that the sun will rise in the east is 1.

9.         An event which is impossible has a probability of 0 (or 0%).             For example, the probability that the sun will never set again is 0.
