Question 3.
$$\frac{7}{5}$$ is the zero of 7x – 5. Is it True/False ?
Solution:
False
p(x) = 7x – 5
p($$\frac{7}{5}$$) = 7($$\frac{7}{5}$$) – 5 = $$\frac{49}{5}$$ – 5 = $$\frac{49-25}{5}$$ = $$\frac{24}{5}$$
p($$\frac{7}{5}$$) ≠ 0. So, $$\frac{7}{5}$$ is not a zero of p(x).

Note:

2. Each question carries 2 marks.

Question 13.
What value(s) of x will make DE || AB, in the given figure AD = 8 x + 9, CD = x + 3, BE = 3x + 4, CE = x.
Solution:
In ∆ABC, DE || AB
∴ By Thale’s theorem,

$$\frac{C D}{A D}$$ = $$\frac{C E}{C B}$$
⇒ (x + 3) (3x + 4) = x (8x + 9)
⇒ 3x2 + 4x + 9x + 12 = 8x2 + 9x
⇒ 8x2 + 9x – 3x2 – 4x – 9x – 12 = 0
⇒ 5x2 – 4x – 12 = 0
⇒ 5x2 – 10x + 6x – 12 = 0
⇒ 5x(x – 2) + 6(x – 2) = 0
⇒ (x – 2) (5x + 6) = 0
⇒ x = 2 or x = $$\frac{-6}{5}$$

Question 14.
Is 2t – 1 = 2t + 5 a linear equation in one variable?
Solution:
2t – 1 = 2t + 5
2t – 2t = 5 + 1
0 = 6
There is no variable in it. So it is not a linear equation in one variable.

Question 15.
Determine the value of $$2^{2+\log _2^3}$$
Solution:
$$2^{2+\log _2 3}$$ = 22 × $$2^{\log _2 3}$$
= 4 × $$\log _2 3$$
= 4 × 3
= 12
We know that
(i) am + n = am × an
(ii) $$a^{\log _a N}$$ = N

Question 16.
2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 10, 15 …… is an arithmetic progression? Why ?
Solution:
Given that 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 10, 15…………
a2 – a1 = 3 – 2 = 1
a3 – a2 = 5 – 3 = 2
a4 – a3 = 7 – 5 = 2
a5 – a4 = 8 – 7 = 1
∴ a2 – a1 ≠ a3 – a2 = a4 – a3 ≠ a5 – a4
So it is not an arithmetic progression.

Question 17.
What is the probability for drawing out a ’Red king’ from a deck of cards?
Solution:
Total deck of cards = 52
Total possible outcomes = 52
No. of favourable outcomes to drawing out a red king = 2
∴ Probability P (E)
No. of favourable out comes
$$=\frac{\text { No. of favourable out comes }}{\text { Total possible out comes }}$$
= $$\frac{2}{52}$$ = $$\frac{1}{26}$$

Question 18.
Write the formula to find median of a grouped data?
Solution:
Median = l + $$\frac{\frac{n}{2}-c f}{f}$$ × h
Where l = lower limit of the median class.
h = length of the median class.
f = frequency of the median class,
cf = cumulative frequency of the class preceeding the median class.

Question 19.
A cylinder and cone have bases of equal radii and are of equal heights. Show that their volumes are
in the ratio of 3 : 1.
Solution:
It is given that the bases have equal radii and are of equal heights.
∴ Ratio of the volumes of the cylinder and the cone = πr2h : $$\frac{1}{3}$$πr2h
= 1 : $$\frac{1}{3}$$ = 3 : 1

Question 20.
Rinki observed a ball on the ground from the balcony of the first floor of a building at an angle of depression θ. If the height of the first floor of the building is ‘x’ meters. Draw the diagram for this data
Solution:

2. Each question carries 4 marks.

Question 21.
How many multiples of 4 lie between 10 and 250?
Solution:
The list of multiples of 4 lie between 10 and 250 is,
12, 16, 20, 24, ……., 248
Here, a = 12 ; d = 4 ; an = 248
an = a + (n – 1)d
248 = 12 + (n – 1)4
248 – 12 = (n – 1)4
(n – 1)4 = 236
n – 1 = $$\frac{236}{4}$$ = 59
n = 59 + 1 = 60
∴ There are 60, multiples of 4 lie between 10 and 250.

Question 22.
Solve the following pair of equations:
$$\frac{2}{x}$$ + $$\frac{3}{y}$$ = 13 ; $$\frac{5}{x}$$ – $$\frac{4}{y}$$ = -2
Solution:
Observe the given pair of equations. They are not linear equations.
We have 2($$\frac{1}{x}$$) + 3($$\frac{1}{y}$$) = 13 …….. (1)
5($$\frac{1}{x}$$) – 4($$\frac{1}{y}$$) = -2 …….. (2)
If we substitute $$\frac{1}{x}$$ = p and $$\frac{1}{y}$$ = q, we get a pair of linear equations:
2p + 3q = 13 ………… (3)
5p – 4q = -2 ………. (4)
[Coefficients of q are 3 and 4 and their L.C.M. is 12. Using the elimination method:]

[‘q’ has opposite sign, so we add the two equations.]
p = $$\frac{46}{23}$$ = 2
Substitute the value of p in equation (3)
2(2) + 3q = 13 ; 3q = 13 – 4 = 9
q = $$\frac{46}{23}$$
But, $$\frac{1}{x}$$ = p = 2 ⇒ x = $$\frac{1}{2}$$
$$\frac{1}{y}$$ = q = 3 ⇒ y = $$\frac{1}{3}$$

Question 23.
Find two consecutive positive integers, sum of whose squares is 613.
Solution:
Let the first positive integer be x
Then the consecutive positive integer is x + 1
Sum of the squares = x2 + (x + 1)2
= x2 + x2 + 2x + 1
= 2x2 + 2x + 1
Given sum of the squares = 613
∴ 2x2 + 2x + 1 = 613
2x2 + 2x + 1 – 613 = 0
2x2 + 2x – 612 = 0
x2 + x – 306 = 0
x2 + 18x – 17x – 306 = 0
x(x + 18) – 17 (x + 18) = 0
(x + 18)(x – 17)
x + 18 = 0 or x – 17 = 0
x + 18 = 0 gives x = -18
x – 17 = 0 gives x = 17
For x = 17 its consecutive positive integer is x + 1 = 17 + 1 = 18.
Two consecutive positive integers are 17, 18.

Question 24.
Find all the zeroes of 2x4 – 3x3 – 3x2 + 6x – 2, if you know that two of its zeroes are $$\sqrt{2}$$ and –$$\sqrt{2}$$.
Solution:
Since two of the zeroes are $$\sqrt{2}$$ and –$$\sqrt{2}$$, therefore we can divide by

Now, by splitting -3x, we factorize 2x2 – 3x + 1 as (2x – 1) (x – 1). So, its zeroes are given by x = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ and x = 1. Therefore, the zeroes of the given polynomial are $$\sqrt{2}$$, –$$\sqrt{2}$$ and 1 and $$\frac{1}{2}$$.

Question 25.
Prove that the points A (-7, -3), B (5, 10), C (15, 8) and D (3, – 5) taken in order are the vertices of a
parallelogram.
Solution:
Let A(-7, -3), B(5, 10), C(15, 8) and D(3, -5) be the given points.

Opposite sides AB = CD, BC = DA
Diagonals AC ≠ BD
Therefore ABCD is a parallelogram.
The given points taken in order form a parallelogram.

Question 26.
A heap of rice is in the form of a cone of diameter 12 m. and height 8 m. Find its volume? How much canvas cloth is required to cover the heap?
(Use π = 3.14)
Solution:
Diameter of the conic heap of rice = 12 m
∴ Its radius(r) = –$$\frac{12}{2}$$m = 6 m
height (h) = 8 m
Its volume (v) = $$\frac{1}{3}$$πr2h

Required canvas cloth to cover the heap
= Curved surface area of heap
= πrl = 3.14 × 6 × 10 m2
= 188.4 m2

Question 27.
Show that

Solution:

Question 28.
A die is thrown once. Find the probability of getting
i) a prime Number
ii) a number lying between 2 and 6
iii) an odd number
iv) multiple of 3.
Solution:
When a die is thrown, sample space S = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}
i) Let A denotes the event of getting a prime number. Then A = {2, 3, 5}
So, required probability = P(A)
= $$\frac{\mathrm{n}(\mathrm{A})}{\mathrm{n}(\mathrm{S})}$$ = $$\frac{3}{6}$$ = $$\frac{1}{2}$$

ii) Let B denote the event of getting a number between 2 and 6.
Then, B = {3, 4, 5}
∴ Required probability = P(B) = $$\frac{n(B)}{n(S)}$$
$$\frac{3}{6}$$ = $$\frac{1}{2}$$

iii) Let C denotes the event of getting an odd number. Then C = {1, 3, 5}
So, required probability, P(C) = $$\frac{\mathrm{n}(\mathrm{C})}{\mathrm{n}(\mathrm{S})}$$
$$\frac{3}{6}$$ = $$\frac{1}{2}$$

iv) Let D denotes the event of getting multiple of 3. Then D = {3, 6}
No. of favorable outcomes = 2
So, required probability,
p(D) = $$\frac{\mathrm{n}(\mathrm{D})}{\mathrm{n}(\mathrm{S})}$$
Probability = P (D) = $$\frac{2}{6}$$ = $$\frac{1}{3}$$

A = {x : x is set of even prime} = {2}
B = {x : x is a natural number < 12}
= {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11}
C = {x : x is a multiple of 4 less than or equal to 12}
= {4, 8, 12}
D = {x : x is a factor of 12} = {1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12}

(i) A∪B
A∪B= {2} ∪ {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11}

Question 30.
For which acute angle ‘θ’

(OR)

A motor boat whose speed is 18 km/h in still water. It takes 1 hour more to go 24 km upstream than to return downstream to the same spot. Find the speed of the stream.
Solution:

(OR)

Let the speed of the stream be x km/h
Therefore, the speed of the boat upstream = (18 – x) km/h and the speed of the boat downstream = (18 + x) km/h.
The time taken to go upstream distance 24
$$\frac{\text { distance }}{\text { speed }}$$ = $$\frac{24}{18-x}$$ hours.
Similarly, the time taken to go down-stream
= $$\frac{24}{18+x}$$ hours
According to the question,
= $$\frac{24}{18-x}$$ – $$\frac{24}{18+x}$$ = 1
i.e., 24(18 + x) – 24(18 – x)
= (18 – x)(18 + x)
i.e., x2 + 48x – 324 = 0
Using the quadratic formula, we get
x = $$\frac{-48 \pm \sqrt{48^2+1296}}{2}$$ = $$\frac{-48 \pm \sqrt{3600}}{2}$$
= $$\frac{-48 \pm 60}{2}$$ = 6 (or) -54
Since x is the speed of the stream, it cannot be negative. So, we ignore the root x = – 54. Therefore, x = 6 gives the speed of the stream as 6 km/hr.

Question 31.
The mean pocket allowance is 18/-. Find the missing frequencies.

 Daily pocket allowance 11-13 13-15 15-17 17-19 19-21 21-23 23-25 Number of Children 7 6 9 13 f 5 4

(OR)

Find the co-ordinates of the points of trisection of the line segment joining (4, -1) and (-2, -3).
Solution:
Given that, mean pocket allowance is ₹ 18.
We will find the mean of the given data and equalize it with 18 to find the value of ‘f’.

(OR)

Let P and Q be the points of trisection of AB is AP = PQ = QB.
Therefore P divides AB internally in the ratio 1 : 2

Now, Q also divides AB internally in the ratio 2 : 1
We have x1 = 4, y1 = -1, x2 = -2, y2 = -3.
m1 = 2; m2 = 1

Therefore the coordinates of the point of trisection of the line joining are p(2, $$\frac{-5}{3}$$) and Q(0, $$\frac{-7}{3}$$)

Question 32.
State and prove Pythagoras Theorem.

(OR)

The angle of elevation of a jet plane from a point A on the ground is 60°. After a flight of 15 seconds,
the angle of elevation changes to 30°. If the jet plane is flying at a constant height of 100$$\sqrt{3}$$ meter, find the speed of the jet plane. ($$\sqrt{3}$$ = 1.732)
Solution:
Statement: In a right triangle, the square of hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.
Given : ∆ABC is the right triangle right angled at B.
RTP: AC2 = AB2 + BC2
Construction: Draw BD ⊥ AC

(OR)

Let D is the initial position of the jet plane which moves to C in 15 seconds.
A is the point on the ground from where we are observing. Then

From (1) & (2)
Distance that jet flied
= CD = BE = AB – AE
= 4500 m – 1500 m = 3000 m
So, speed of the flight
= $$\frac{3000 \mathrm{~m}}{15 \text { seconds }}$$ = 200 m/s

Question 33.
Draw the graph of p(x) = x2 – x – 12 and find its zeroes. Justify your answer.
(OR)
Draw a circle of radius 6 cm. From a point 10 cm away from its centre construct the pair of tangents to the circle and measure their lengths. Verify by using Pythogaras theorem.
Solution:
p(x) = x2 – x – 12
y = x2 – x – 12

-3 and 4 are zeroes of the quadratic polynomial because (-3, 0) and (4, 0) are intersection points of X axis.
Justification: x2 – x – 12 = 0 ⇒ x2 – 4x + 3x – 12 ⇒ (x – 4) (x + 3) = 0
x – 4 = 0 and x + 3 = 0 x = 4, x = -3 zeroes of p(x) = -3, 4.

(OR)

Construction:

1. Draw a circle of radius 6 cm. Let its centre be ‘O’
2. Let a point P is at a distance of 10 cm from the centre ‘O’
3. Draw the perpendicular bisector of PO which cuts it at the mid point M.
4. Taking M as centre with radius PM or MO, we draw a circle that intersects the given circle at two points A and B.
5. Join PA and PB. These are the required tangents of the circle.

Proof:
From the figure, PO = 10 cm, OA = 6 cm
Also ∆POA is a right angled triangle.
By Pythagoras theorem,
PO2 = PA2 + OA2 ⇒ PA2 = PO2 – OA2 = 102 – 62 = 100 – 36 = 64
∴ PA = $$\sqrt{64}$$ = 8 cm
In OPB, ∠OBP = 90°. OB = 6 cm, OP = 10 cm.
By Pythagoras theorem OP2 = OB2 + BP2
⇒ BP2 = OP2 – OB2 ⇒ = 102 – 62
= 100 – 36 = 64 ⇒ BP = $$\sqrt{64}$$
= 8 cm
