\(d+e = \dfrac{-10}{3}\\ de = \dfrac{-25}{3}\\ (d-e)^2 = (d+e)^2 - 4de = \left(\dfrac{-10}{3}\right)^2 - 4\left(\dfrac{-25}{3}\right) = \dfrac{400}{9}\)

\(a+b = -\dfrac{-8}{2} = 4\\ ab = \dfrac{7}{2}\\ \dfrac{1}{2a} + \dfrac{1}{2b} = \dfrac{1}{2}\left(\dfrac{a+b}{ab}\right) = \dfrac{1}{2}\left(\dfrac{4}{\frac{7}{2}}\right)=\dfrac{4}{7}\)

\(s+t = -\dfrac{9}{4}\\ st = \dfrac{-6}{4} = -\dfrac{3}{2}\\ \dfrac{s}{t} + \dfrac{t}{s} = \dfrac{(s+t)^2 - 2st}{st} = \dfrac{\left(\frac{-9}{4}\right)^2 -2\left(\frac{-3}{2}\right)}{\frac{-3}{2}} =\dfrac{-43}{8}\)

\(m+n = \dfrac{-5}{4}\\ mn = \dfrac{3}{4}\\ (m+7)(n+7) = mn + 7(m+n) + 49 = \dfrac{3}{4}+7\left(\dfrac{-5}{4}\right) + 49 = 41\)

\(\begin{cases} x+y=3\\ x^2+y^2=6\\ x^4=y^4+18\sqrt3 \end{cases}\\ (x + y)^2 = 9\\ x^2 + y^2 + 2xy = 9\\ 2xy = 3\\ x = \dfrac{3}{2y}\\ \dfrac{3}{2y} + y = 3\\ 2y^2 - 6y + 3 = 0\\ y = \dfrac{6\pm2\sqrt{3}}{4} = \dfrac{3\pm\sqrt{3}}{2}\\ \text{When } y = \dfrac{3+\sqrt3}{2}\text{,}\\ x = \dfrac{3-\sqrt3}{2}\\ \text{When } y = \dfrac{3-\sqrt3}{2}\text{,}\\ x = \dfrac{3+\sqrt3}{2}\\ \therefore (x,y) = \left(\dfrac{3+\sqrt3}{2},\dfrac{3-\sqrt3}{2}\right) \text{ OR }\left(\dfrac{3-\sqrt3}{2},\dfrac{3+\sqrt3}{2}\right)\)

\((x-p)(x-q) = x^2+4x+6\\ (x-p)(x-q) = x^2+bx+c\\ \text{Comparing coefficients,} \\ (b,c) = (4,6)\\ \therefore b + c = 10\)
