Substitute x = 9 in the Quadratic equation .
81 - 9y + 27 = 0
y = 108/9
y = 12

Answer is E .

x^2 − yx + 27 = 0
If x = 9
81-9y+27=0
9y=108
y=12

Hence Option E is correct

Plug in the value of x = 9 and check -

\(9^2 − 9y + 27 = 0\)

Or, \(9y = 108\)

So, y = 12

Hence, correct answer must be (E) \(y = 12\)

we know 27 is a multiple of 9
27/9=3
we know signs of both numbers are negative
(x-9)(x-3)=x^2-12x+27=0
y=12
