49. If x+1 is a factor of 2x

Since (x+1) is a factor of 2x

^{3}+ ax^{2}+ 2bx + 1, so
2(-1)

^{3}+ a(-1)^{2}+ 2b(-1) + 1 = 0
⇒ -2 + a - 2b + 1 = 0

⇒ a - 2b - 1 = 0

⇒ a - 2b = 1 ...(i)

Also, we are given

2a - 3b = 4 ...(ii)

From (i) and (ii) we get

a = 1 + 2b ...(iii)

Substituting the value of a in (ii), we get

2(1 + 2b) - 3b = 4

Adding (i) and (ii), we get

4x + 4y = 20

⇒ x + y = 5 ....(iii)

Subtracting (i) from (ii), we get

2x - 2y = -6

⇒ x - y = -3 ....(iv)

Adding (iii) and (iv), we get

2x = 2

⇒ x = 1

Putting x = 1 in (iii), we get

1+y = 5

⇒ y = 4

Thus, x = 1 and y = 4.

Thus,

x + 3y = 13 ....(i)

3x + y = 7 ....(ii)

Adding (i) and (ii), we get

4x + 4y = 20

⇒ x + y = 5 ....(iii)

Subtracting (i) from (ii), we get

2x - 2y = -6

⇒ x - y = -3 ....(iv)

Adding (iii) and (iv), we get

2x = 2

⇒ x = 1

Putting x = 1 in (iii), we get

1+y = 5

Thus, x = 1 and y = 4.

52. Write an equation of a line passing through the point representing solution of the pair of linear equation x + y = 2 and 2x - y = 1. How many such lines can we find?

**Solution**
