Take one factor of the equation x²+32x-273 = 0 First factorise .... Factors are x-7 and x+32 ...... So take any one factor and solve it and you will get two solutions of the quadratic equation...... X-7.....x=7 And x+32.....x=-32 Now put your logic age can't be in minus so x=7 is correct solution for this question...Hence solved

so the mothers age is x + 26

after 3 years

rohans age x+3

mothers age x+29

therefore we know

(x+3)(x+29) = 360

x square + 29x + 3x + 87 = 360

x square + 32x - 187 = 0

now we can solve it by perfect square method
