# CAT 2018 [SLOT 2] Quant Question with Solution 11

Question:
If a and b are integers such that 2x2 −ax + 2 > 0 and x2 −bx + 8 ≥ 0 for all real numbers x, then the largest possible value of 2a−6b is

$2 x^{2}-a x+2>0 \forall x \in R$
$\Rightarrow \Delta<0$
$\Rightarrow$ $a^{2}-4 \times 2 \times 2<0$
$\Rightarrow a^{2}<16$
$\Rightarrow-4$x^{2}-b x+8 \geq 0 \forall x \in R\Rightarrow b^{2}-4(8) \leq 0\Rightarrow-4 \sqrt{2} \leq b \leq 4 \sqrt{2}$As b is integer$-5 \leq b \leq 5\$
Therefore, maximum possible value of 2a – 6b is 2(3) – 6(–5) = 36
