Solutions
SECTION – A
Solution 1.
We know that
HCF × LCM = Product of two numbers
⇒ LCM = \(\frac { 306\times 657 }{ 9 } =22338\)
Thus, LCM (306,657) = 22338
Solution 2.
Assume that -150 is the n^{th} term of the given AP. Then,
Solution 3.
Let the two numbers bep and q (p > q). Then, as per the question,
p + q = 35 and p – q = 13
Solving the two equations simultaneously, we have
2p = 48 and 2q = 22
p = 24 and q = 11
Thus, the two numbers are 24 and 11. (1)
Solution 4.
Since DE || BC, by B.P. Theorem,
Solution 5.
We know that
OP ⊥ AP
So, in ∆OPA,
OA^{2} = OP^{2} + AP^{2}
⇒ OP^{2} = OA^{2} – AP^{2} = 5^{2} – 4^{2} = 25 – 16 = 9
⇒ OP = \(\sqrt { 9 } \) =3cm.
Thus, the radius of the circle is 3 cm.
(1)
Solution 6.
Here, cumulative frequencies are :
16, 29, 35, 46, 73, 91 .
So, N = 91 and \(\frac { N }{ 2 } \) = 45.5
Thus, lower limit of the median class is 30. (1)
SECTION – B
Solution 7.
Let V be an integer and b = 3.
Applying Euclid’s division lemma with a and b = 3, we have
a = 3q + r, where 0 ≤ r < 3 and q is some integer
⇒ a = 3q or a = 3q + 1 or a = 3q + 2 for more integer q. (2)
Solution 8.
(x + 1 ) (x^{2} – X- X^{4} + 1)
= (x^{3} – x^{2} – x^{5} + x) + (x^{2} – x – x^{4} + 1)
= -x^{5} – x^{4} + x^{3} + 1
Thus, the degree of the given polynomial is 5. (2)
Solution 9.
We have
Solution 10.
As PQ || BC, we have
∠APQ = ∠ABC (Corr. angles)
∠PAQ = ∠BAC (Common)
∠AQP = ∠ACB (Alt. angles)
Solution 11.
Here
Hence, proved. (2)
Solution 12.
From the given figure,
Perimeter of the shaded region
SECTION – C
Solution 13.
Let us assume, to the contrary, that \(\sqrt { 5 }\) is a rational number
Then, there exists co-prime positive integers a and b such that :
It means 5 divides b^{2} and so 5 divides b.
So, 5 is a common factor of both a and b, which is a contradiction.
So, our assumption that \(\sqrt { 5 }\) is rational is wrong.
Hence, we conclude that \(\sqrt { 5 }\) is an irrational number. (3)
Solution 14.
Let α , β be the two zeroes of the quadratic polynomial.
Here, we have
Solution 15.
We have, 2x + 4y = 10
⇒ y = \(\frac { 5-x }{ 2 }\)
Thus, we have the following table of values :
Plot the points A (1, 2), B (3,1) and C (5, 0) on a graph paper. Join A, B and C and get a line, the graph of the equation 2x + 4y = 10 Further, we have, 3x + 6y = 12
⇒ y = \(\frac { 12-3x }{ 6 }\)
Thus, we have the following table :
Plot the point P(0, 2), Q(2, 1) and R(4, 0) on the same graph paper. Join P, Q and R and get a line, the graph of the equation 3x + 6y = 12
From the graph, we find that the two lines represented by 2x + 4y = 10 and 3x + 6y = 12 are parallel.
So, two lines do not have any common point.
Hence, the given system of equations has no solution. (3)
Solution 16.
Let the given three points be denoted by A, B and C respectively, i.e.
A (1, 5), B (2, 3), C (-2, -11)
The points A, B and C will be collinear if the sum of the lengths of the two line segments is equal to the length of the third line segment.
AB + BC = AC or AB + AC = BC or AC + BC = AB
Solution 17.
Let the ratio be k: 1.
Then, by section formula, the coordinates of its point P which divides the line segment in the ratio k: 1 are
Solution 18.
Given : A circle C (o, r) and a tangent AB at a point P.
To Prove : OP ⊥ AB
Construction : Take any point Q, other than P, on the tangent AB. Join OQ. Let OQ meets the circle at R
Proof : To prove that OP ⊥ AB„ it is sufficient to prove that OP is shorter than any other segment joining O to any point of AB.
Thus, OP is shorter than any other segment joining O to any point on AB.
Hence, OP ⊥ AB (3)
OR
Since lengths of two tangents drawn from an external point to a circle are equal.
AP = AS, BP = BQ, DR = DS and CR = CQ
Adding all these, we have
(AP + BP) + (CR + RD) = (BQ + CQ) + (DS + AS)
⇒ AB + CD = BC + DA. (3)
Solution 19.
sin(x – 20)° = cos (3x – 10)° gives
cos [90° – (x – 20)°] = cos (3.x – 10)°
⇒ 90° – (x – 20)° = (3x – 10)°
⇒ 90° – x° + 20° = 3x° – 10°
⇒ 4x° = 120°
⇒ x° = 30°
Thus, x = 30 (3)
OR
Solution 20.
Solution 21.
Here, n(S) = 7 + 8 + 5 = 20.
(a) P (a white ball) = \(\frac { 50 }{ 20 }\) = \(\frac { 1 }{ 4 }\)
(b) P (neither red nor white) = P (a green ball) = \(\frac { 8 }{ 20 }\) i.e. \(\frac { 2 }{ 5 }\)
OR
Total number of possible outcomes = 36
i. Six different scores possible are 0, 1, 2, 6, 7 and 12
ii. Sample space = {(1, 6), (1, 6), (1, 6), (1, 6), (1, 6), (1, 6), (6, 1), (6, 1), (6, 1), (6, 1), (6, 1), (6, 1),}
∴ Number of favourable outcomes = 12
So, P(a total of 7) = \(\frac { 12 }{ 36 }\) = \(\frac { 1 }{ 3 }\) (3)
Solution 22.
Let there be V blue balls in the bag.
∴ Total number of balls in the bag = 5 + x
Now
SECTION – D
Solution 23.
Let the given natural number be x
According to question,
x^{2} – 84 = 3 (x + 8)
⇒ x^{2} – 3x – 108 = 0
⇒ x^{2} – 12x + 9x- 108 = 0
⇒ x (x – 12) + 9 (x – 12) = 0
⇒ (x + 9)(x – 12) = 0
Either x – 12 = 0 or x + 9 = 0
⇒ x = 12 or x = – 9
Since x is a natural number, x ≠ – 9
x = 12
Hence, the required number is 12. (4)
OR
Solution 24.
Let ‘a’ be the first terni and V’ be the common difference of AP. Then, according to the question,
Solution 25.
Solution 26.
Solution 27.
Let AB be the mountain of height ‘b’ km.
Let C be a point at a distance of x km, from the base of the mountain such that the angle of elevation of the top at C is 30°. Let D be a point at a distance of 10 km from C such that angle of elevation at D is of 15°.
In ∆CAB, we have
Hence, the mountain is 5 km high.
OR
Let AB be the tree of height ‘ti metres standing on the bank of a river. Let C be the position of man standing on the opposite bank of river such that BC = x m.
Let D be the new position of the man. It is given that CD = 40 m and the angles of elevation of the top of the tree at C and D are 60° and 30° respectively,
∠ACB = 60° and ∠ADB = 30°
From (i), we have x = 20 m
Thus, the height of the tree is 20\(\sqrt { 3 }\) m and width of the river 20 m. (4)
Solution 28.
It is given that radius of each sector (r) = 21 cm
Thus, the required area is 1386 sq cm. (4)
Solution 29.
First we have to convert the given class intervals into continuous classes as follows :
Class Interval | C.I | Number of leaves fi | C.f. |
118 – 126 | 117 – 126.5 | 3 | 3 |
127 – 135 | 126.5 – 135.5 | 5 | 8 |
136 – 144 | 135.5 – 144.5 | 9 | 17 |
145 – 153 | 144.5 – 153.5 | 12 | 29 |
154 – 162 | 153.5 – 162.5 | 5 | 34 |
163 – 171 | 162.5 – 171.5 | 4 | 38 |
172 – 180 | 171.5 – 180.5 | 2 | 40 |
Here, N = 40. So, \(\frac { N }{ 2 } \) = 20
Median class is 144.5 – 153.5
[Median class = The class interval corresponding to c.f ≥ \(\frac { N }{ 2 } \)].
Width of the median class (b) = 153.5 – 144.5 = 9
Lower limit of the median class (l) = 144.5
Frequency of the median class (f) = 12
Cumulative frequency of the pre-median class (c) = 17
Using Median Formula, we have
Hence, the median length of the leaves is 146.75 mm. (4)
Solution 30.
