## 58th SSC CGL level Question Set, 14th on Algebra

This is the 58th question set of 10 practice problem exercise for SSC CGL exam and 14th on topic Algebra.

In solving the problems in this session, efforts should be to solve the problems using analytical conceptual strategies and powerful techniques with least amount of number crunching. To absorb the concepts though the student must first understand and then apply the concepts and techniques for actual problem solving during managed practice sessions.

Learning by doing is the best learning. There is no other alternative towards achieving excellence.

After taking the test, you need to refer to the companion solution set (link at the end) for answers and detailed conceptual solutions.

Before taking the test you may like to refer to our **concept tutorials** on Algebra and other related topics,

- $9$
- $-5$

**Problem 4.**

If $\displaystyle\frac{x}{xa+yb+zc}=\displaystyle\frac{y}{ya+zb+xc}=\displaystyle\frac{z}{za+xb+yc}$, and $x+y+z \neq 0$ then each ratio can be expressed as,

- $\displaystyle\frac{1}{a+b-c}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{1}{a+b+c}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{1}{a-b-c}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{1}{a-b+c}$

**Problem 5.**

If $3(a^2+b^2+c^2)=(a+b+c)^2$, then the relation between $a$, $b$ and $c$ is,

- $a=b=c$
- $a \neq b=c$
- $a=b \neq c$
- $a \neq b \neq c$

**Problem 6.**

If $x=\sqrt{5} + \sqrt{3}$ and $y=\sqrt{5} - \sqrt{3}$, then the value of $(x^4-y^4)$ is,

- $16$
- $544$
- $64\sqrt{15}$
- $32\sqrt{15}$

**Problem 7.**

- $\displaystyle\frac{4}{27}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{10}{27}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{5}{27}$
- $\displaystyle\frac{8}{27}$

**Problem 8.**

For real $x+y+z=6$, then the value of $(x-1)^3+(y-2)^3+(z-3)^3$ is,

- $3xyz$
- $3(x-1)(y-2)(z-3)$
- $2(x-1)(y-2)(z-3)$
- $(x-1)(y-2)(z-3)$

**Problem 9.**

If $x+\displaystyle\frac{1}{x}=\sqrt{3}$, then the value of $x^{30}+x^{24}+x^{18}+x^{12}+x^6+1$ is,

- $1$
- $\sqrt{3}$
- $-\sqrt{3}$
- $0$

**Problem 10.**

If $\displaystyle\frac{p}{a}+\displaystyle\frac{q}{b}+\displaystyle\frac{r}{c}=1$, and $\displaystyle\frac{a}{p}+\displaystyle\frac{b}{q}+\displaystyle\frac{c}{r}=0$ where $a$, $b$, $c$ and $p$, $q$, $r$ are non-zero, the value of $\displaystyle\frac{p^2}{a^2}+\displaystyle\frac{q^2}{b^2}+\displaystyle\frac{r^2}{c^2}$ is,

- $1$
- $-1$
