Section B [ 2 x 5 = 10M]

5.) Find the two numbers whose sum is 25 and the product is 156?

6.) Find the value of k for the following quadratic equaltion, so that the  roots are equal:

\(2x^2 + kx + 3 = 0 \)

7.) Find the 31st term of an A.P. whose 11th term is 38 and the 16th term is 73.

8.) A tower stands verticaaly on the ground. From a point on the ground which is 15m away from the foot of the tower is found to be 60°. Find the height of the tower. (The angle of elevation of top of the tower is 60°)
