# I. x2 – x – 42 = 0, II. y2 – 17y + 72 = 0 to solve both the equations to find the values of x and y?

**I. x**

II. y

^{2}– x – 42 = 0,II. y

^{2}– 17y + 72 = 0 to solve both the equations to find the values of x and y?**A. If x < y (Correct)**

B. If x > y

C. If x ≤ y

D. If x ≥ y

E. If x = y or the relationship between x and y cannot be established.

Explanation:

I. x^{2} – 7x + 6x – 42 = 0

=> (x – 7)(x + 6) = 0 => x = 7, -6

II. y^{2} – 8y – 9y + 72 = 0

=> (y – 8)(y – 9) = 0 => y = 8, 9

=> x < y
