If p=3\(t^2\)+2 and r=6t−5, where t is a positive number, and if p+r=69, then t=

Solution

p+r= 3\(t^2\)+6t-3=69
p+r= 3\(t^2\)+6t-72=0
p+r= \(t^2\)+2t−24=0
(Dividing both sides by 3)
p+r=(t+6)(t-4)=0(Factorising the equation)
t= -6,4
Since it is mentioned in the question stem that "t" is a positive number, t=4


IMO C
