Solution:

(17 × 11 × 2) + (17 × 11 × 5)

= 17 × 11 × (2 + 5)

= 17 × 11 × 7

Solution:

Radius of cone (r) = 3.5 cm = \(\frac{7}{2}\) cm

Its height (h) = 10 cm

Volume of a cone (V) = \(\frac{1}{3} \pi r^2 h\)

= \(\frac{1}{3}\) × \(\frac{22}{7}\) × \(\frac{7}{2}\) × \(\frac{7}{2}\) × 10

= \(\frac{770}{6}\) = 128.33 cm^{3}

Question 19.

Solution:

sin 81° + tan 81° = sin (90° – 9°) + tan (90° – 9°)

= cos 9° + cot 9°

[∵ sin (90° – A) = cos A

tan (90° – A) = cot A]

Question 20.

A die is thrown once. Find the probability of getting

(i) a prime number,

E_{1} = {2, 3, 5}

S = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6}

∴ P(E_{1}) = \(\frac{\mathrm{n}\left(\mathrm{E}_1\right)}{\mathrm{n}(\mathrm{S})}\) = \(\frac{3}{6}\) = \(\frac{1}{2}\)

ii) Let ‘E_{2}‘ be an event of getting an odd number,

E_{2} = {1, 3, 5}

∴ P(E_{2}) = \(\frac{\mathrm{n}\left(\mathrm{E}_2\right)}{\mathrm{n}(\mathrm{S})}\) = \(\frac{3}{6}\) = \(\frac{1}{2}\)

Question 23.

Solve the following pair of linear equations.

3x – 5y = -1,

x – y = -1.

Solution:

Given : 3x – 5y = -1 → (1)

x – y = -1 → (2)

Substituting y = -1 in (1)

3x – 5(-1) = -1

⇒ 3x = -6

⇒ x = \(\frac{-6}{3}\) = -2

∴ x = -2, y = -1

Alternate Method :

Given : 3x – 5y = -1 → (1)

x – y = -1 → (2)

From (2), y = x + 1 → (3)

Substituting y = x + 1 in equation (1)

3x – 5(x + 1) = -1

-2x = -1 + 5

x = \(\frac{4}{-2}\) = -2

Substituting x = -2 in equation (3)

y = x + 1

y = -2 + 1 = -1

∴ x = -2, y = -1

Question 24.

A car has two wipers which do not overlap. Each wiper has a blade of length 25 cm sweeping through an angle of 115°. Find the total area cleaned at each sweep of the blades. (Use π = \(\frac{22}{7}\))

Solution:

Given : length of each blade, r = 25 cm

Angle of sweeping x° = 115°

Area swept by two wipers = 2 × Area swept by each blade

= 2 × \(\frac{x^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}}\)πr^{2}

= 2 × \(\frac{115^{\circ}}{360^{\circ}}\) × \(\frac{22}{7}\) × (25)^{2}

= 1254.96 sq. units.

Question 25.

Two cubes each of volume 64 cm^{3} are joined end to end together. Find the total surface area of the resulting cuboid.

Solution:

Let ‘a’ be an edge of a cube

Given : volume of the cube = 64 cm^{3}

∴ a^{3} = 64 = 4^{3}

The dimensions of resulting cuboid are

length l = 8 cm

breadth b = 4 cm

height h = 4 cm

Total surface area of the cuboid = 2(lb + bh + lh)

= 2[8 × 4 + 4 × 4 + 8 × 4]

= 2[32 + 16 + 32]

= 2[80] = 160 cm^{2}

Question 26.

A tower stands vertically on the ground. From a point which is 15 metres away from the foot of the tower, the angle of elevation of the top of the tower is 45°. What is the height of the tower ?

Solution:

From the figure., in triangle ABC

Given, BC = Distance from the tower = 15 m,

Angle of elevation = ∠C = 45°

Let, height of the tower AB = h meters

tan 45° = \(\frac{\mathrm{h}}{15}\) ⇒ 1 = \(\frac{\mathrm{h}}{15}\) ⇒ h = 15m

Question 27.

Solution:

Median, M = l + \(\left(\frac{\frac{\mathrm{n}}{2}-\mathrm{cf}}{\mathrm{f}}\right)_h\)

l = lower boundary of the median class,

h = size of the median class (class size)

n = number of observations

cf = cumulative frequency of class preceding the median class

f = frequency of median class

Question 29.

a) Prove that \(\sqrt{3}\) is irrational.

OR

b) Prove that \(\sqrt{\frac{1+\cos \theta}{1-\cos \theta}}\) = cosecθ + cotθ.

Solution:

a) Let us assume \(\sqrt{3}\) is rational.

If it is rational, then there must exist two integers ‘r’ and ‘s'(s ≠ 0) such that \(\sqrt{3}\) = \(\frac{\mathrm{r}}{\mathrm{s}}\).

If ‘r’ and ‘s’ have a common factor other than 1, then we divide by the common factor to get \(\sqrt{3}\) = \(\frac{a}{b}\), where ‘a’ and ‘b’ are co-primes. So b\(\sqrt{3}\) = a

On squaring both sides and rearranging, we get

3b^{2} = a^{2}

∴ 3 divides a^{2}

⇒ 3 divides a

So, we can write a = 3c, for some integer ‘c’

Substituting for a, we get 3b^{2} = (3c)^{2}

⇒ 3b^{2} = 9c^{2}

⇒ b^{2} = 3c^{2}

This means 3 divides b^{2} ⇒ 3 divides b

∴ Both ‘a’ and ‘b’ have 3 as a common factor. But this contradicts the fact that ‘a’ and ’b’ are co-primes.

This contradiction has arisen because of our assumption that \(\sqrt{3}\) is rational.

Thus our assumption is false.

\(\sqrt{3}\) is irrational.

b)

Question 30.

a) If A = {2, 3, 5, 7}, B = {2, 4, 6, 8}, C = {2, 5, 8, 11}, D = {3, 5, 7, 9} then find

i) A∪B

ii) A – B

iii) A∩B

iv) B – A

v) C – D

vi) B – C

vii) B∩D

viii) C∪D

OR

b) Find the coordinates of the points of trisection of the line segment joining (4, -1) and (-2, -3).

Solution:

a) A = {2, 3, 5, 7}

B = {2, 4, 6, 8}

C = {2, 5, 8, 11}

D = {3, 5, 7, 9}

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

= {2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8}

(ii) A – B = {2, 3, 5, 7} – {2, 4, 6, 8} = {3, 5, 7}

(iii) A ∩ B = {2, 3, 5, 7} ∩ {2, 4, 6, 8} = {2}

(iv) B – A = {2, 4, 6, 8} – {2, 3, 5, 7} = {4, 6, 8}

(v) C – D = {2, 5, 8, 11} – {3, 5, 7, 9}

= {2, 8, 11}

(vi) B – C = {2, 4, 6, 8} – {2, 5, 8, 11} = {4, 6}

(vii) B ∩ D = {2, 4, 6, 8} ∩ {3, 5, 7, 9}

= { } = φ

(viii) C ∪ D = {2, 5, 8, 11} ∪ {3, 5, 7, 9}

= {2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 11}

b) Let A (4, -1) and B(-2, -3)

Let P and Q are the points of trisection of AB i.e. AP = PQ = QB

∴ P divides AB internally in the ratio 1 : 2

Now, Q also divides AB internally in the ratio 2: 1

So the coordinates of Q are

Q(x, y) = \(\left(\frac{2(-2)+1(4)}{2+1}, \frac{2(-3)+1(-1)}{2+1}\right)\)

= \(\left(\frac{-4+4}{3}, \frac{-6-1}{3}\right)\)

Q(x, y) = \(\left(0, \frac{-7}{3}\right)\)

Therefore, the coordinate of the points of trisection of the line segment are

P(2, \(\frac{-5}{3}\) and Q(0, \(\frac{-7}{3}\))

Question 31.

a) In an AP, given a = 5, d = 3, a_{n} = 50, find ‘n’ and ‘S_{n}‘.

OR

b) Find the mean of the following frequency distribution.

Class Interval | 10-20 | 20-30 | 30-40 | 40-50 | 50-60 |

Frequency | 15 | 110 | 135 | 115 | 25 |

Solution:

a) Given, a = 5, d = 3, a<sub.n = l = 50

We know that a_{n} = a + (n – 1)d

∴ 50 = 5 + 3(n – 1)3

3(n – 1) = 50 – 5

3(n – 1) = 45

n – 1 = 15

∴ n = 16

To find S_{n}:

(OR)

S_{n} = \(\frac{n}{2}\)[a + l] = \(\frac{16}{2}\)[5 + 50]

= 8(55) = 440

b)

∴ Mean of the given frequency distribution is 35.625

Alternate Method:

Question 32.

a) The diagonal of a rectangular field is 60 metres more than the shorter side. If the longer side is 30 metres more than the shorter side, find the sides of the field.

OR

b) One card is drawn from a well-shuffled deck of 52 cards. Find the probability of getting

i) a King of red colour,

ii) a face card

iii) a Jack of hearts,

iv) a spade.

Solution:

a) Let the shorter side of a rectangle is ‘x’m.

Given:

longer side, y = (30 + x) m

diagonal = (60 + x) m

By Pythagoras theorem,

BD^{2} = AD^{2} + AB^{2}

(60 + x)^{2} = x^{2} + (30 + x)^{2}

3600 + 120x + x^{2} = 900 + 60x + x^{2} + x^{2}

x^{2} – 60x – 2700 = 0

x^{2} – 90x + 30x – 2700 = 0

x(x – 90) + 30(x – 90) = 0

(x + 30) (x – 90) =0

∴ x = 90 (or) -30

x can’t be negative.

Shorter side = 90 m

Longer side = 30 + 90 = 120 m

b) Number of cards in the deck n(S) = 52

i) Number of favourable outcomes to get a king of red colour = n(E_{1}) = 2

Probability of getting a king of red colour

P(E_{1}) = \(\frac{n\left(E_1\right)}{n(S)}\) = \(\frac{2}{52}\) = \(\frac{1}{26}\)

ii) Number of favourable outcomes to get a face card = n(E_{2}) = 12

Probability of getting a face card

P(E_{2}) = \(\frac{\mathrm{n}\left(\mathrm{E}_2\right)}{\mathrm{n}(\mathrm{S})}\) = \(\frac{12}{52}\) = \(\frac{3}{13}\)

iii) Number of favourable outcomes to get a jack of hearts = n(E_{3}) = 1

Probability of getting a jack of hearts

P(E_{3} = \(\frac{\mathrm{n}\left(\mathrm{E}_3\right)}{\mathrm{n}(\mathrm{S})}\)) = \(\frac{1}{52}\)

iv) Number of favourable outcomes to get a spade = n(E_{4}) = 13

Probability of getting a spade

P(E_{4} = \(\frac{\mathrm{n}\left(\mathrm{E}_4\right)}{\mathrm{n}(\mathrm{S})}\)) = \(\frac{13}{52}\) = \(\frac{1}{4}\)

Question 33.

a) Draw the graph of the polynomial

p(x) = x^{2} + 3x – 4 and find its zeroes.

OR

b) Construct an isosceles triangle whose base is 5 cm and altitude is 4 cm. Then draw another triangle whose sides are 1\(\frac{1}{3}\) times the corresponding sides of the isosceles triangle.

Solution:

a)

x | -4 | -3 | -2 | -1 | 0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 |

y = x^{2} + 3x – 4 |
0 | -4 | -6 | -6 | -4 | 0 | 6 | 14 | 24 |

(x,y) | (-4,0) | (-3,-4) | (-2,-6) | (-1,-6) | (0,-4) | (1,0) | (2,6) | (3,14) | (4,24) |

1 and -4 are zeroes of the quadratic polynomial because (1, 0) and (-4, 0) are intersection points of X – axis.

b)

Draw a line AX

that AA_{1} = A_{1}A_{2} = A_{2}A_{3} = A_{3}A_{4}
