Q. 4 A4.1( 31 Votes )

Let us determine the value of ‘a’ for which the equation (a-2)x2 + 3x + 5=0 will not be a quadratic equation.

The given equation is (a-2)x2 + 3x + 5=0

We can see that the equation is of the form where a,b and c are real numbers.

So, for the equation not to be quadratic, a’ = 0

Therefore, in the equation

a’ = a-2

a’ = 0

a – 2 = 0

So, a = 2.

Therefore, the above equation will not be quadratic for a = 2.
