Solutions (Set-1)

Section A (Solutions)

## 1. We know that center is the midpoint of diameter of circle.

By section formula which states that if a point P (x, y) divides
the line with end points A (x1, y1) and B (x2, y2) in the ration m:
n, the coordinates of x and y are:

## As midpoint divides the line in the ratio 1:1,

Then, A (x, y) is

⇒4=x+1 ⇒ x=3
and

⇒ - 6 = y + 4 ⇒ y = -10
∴ coordinates of A are (3, -10).

## 2. For roots to be real D ≥ 0

⇒ b2 − 4ac ≥ 0
For x 2 + 4x + k = 0,
⇒ 42 − 4(1)k ≥ 0 ⇒ 16 – 4k ≥ 0
⇒ – 4k ≥ − 16 ⇒ 4k ≤ 16
⇒𝐤 ≤ 𝟒

14
OR

Consider 3x 2 – 10x + k = 0,
Compare the given equation with the general equation
ax 2 + bx + c = 0
So, a = 3, b = -10, c = 3
1
Let, the roots of the equation be x and 𝑥.
𝑐
Product of the roots = 𝑎

⇒k=3

## 3. tan 2A = cot (A – 24⁰)

We know that tan θ = cot (90⁰ - θ)
cot (90⁰ - 2A) = cot (A – 24⁰)
⇒ 90⁰ - 2A = A – 24⁰
⇒ 90⁰ + 24⁰ = A + 2A
⇒ 90⁰ + 24⁰ = 3A
⇒ 114⁰ = 3A
⇒ A = 38⁰
OR

## Consider (sin233⁰ + sin257⁰),

We know that sin θ = cos (90⁰ - θ)
sin233⁰ + sin257⁰ = sin233⁰ + cos2(90⁰ - 57⁰)
= sin233⁰ + cos233⁰ = 1
∴ (sin233⁰ + sin257⁰) = 1

15
4. 1st two-digit number which is divisible by 3 is 12.
2nd two-digit number which is divisible by 3 is 15.
3rd two-digit number which is divisible by 3 is 18.
Last two-digit number which is divisible by 3 is 99.
12, 15, 18, ……, 99
This is an AP as the difference between the consecutive
numbers is the same.
15 − 12 = 18 − 15 = 3
We know the nth term of AP is given by:
an = a + (n – 1) d
⇒ 99 = 12 + (n – 1)3 ⇒ 99 = 12 + 3n − 3
⇒ 99 = 9 + 3n ⇒ 99 − 9 = 3n
⇒ 90 = 3n
n = 30
So, there are 30 two-digit numbers which are divisible by 3.

## 5. In ∆ ADE and ∆ ABC

∠ ADE = ∠ ABC (alternate angles)
∠ DAE = ∠ BAC (same angle)
{By AA similarity criteria; which states that if two triangles have
one pair of congruent angles, then the triangles are similar.}
We know that if two triangles are similar then the ratio of their
areas is equal to the square of alternating sides.
The ratio of the ar (∆ ABC) to the ar(∆ ADE)

## Ratio of the ar (∆ ABC) to the ar (∆ ADE) = 9: 1

16
6. We know that
√2 = 1.414

… and √3 = 1.732…
There are infinite rational numbers between two irrational
numbers.
They are terminating or not terminating but repeating.
So, numbers between √2 and √3 are just greater than 1.41 and
less than 1.73.
They can be 1.45, 1.61, 1.6363…, 1.54 and so on.

17
Section B (Solutions)

7. By Euclid's algorithm
We know that
Dividend = Divisor × Quotient + Remainder
⇒ 7344 = 1260 × 5 + 1044
⇒ 1260 = 1044 × 1 + 216
⇒ 1044 = 216 × 4 + 180
⇒ 216 = 180 × 1 + 36 ⇒ 180 = 36 × 5 + 0
So, HCF of 1260 and 7344 is 36 because when the divisor is 36
remainder is 0.
OR
We know by Euclid's algorithm if a and b are two positive
integers, there exist unique integers q and r satisfying,
a = bq + r where 0 ≤ r < b
Let, b = 4
a = 4q + r, 0 ≤ r < 4
So, r can be 0,1,2 and 3.
If r = 0,
a = 4q
= 2(2q)
= 2n (where n = 2q)
which is an even integer.
If r = 1,
a = 4q + 1
= 2(2q) + 1
= 2n + 1 (where n = 2q)
which is an odd integer.
If r = 2,

18
a = 4q + 2
= 2(2q + 1 )
= 2n (where n = 2q + 1)
which is an even integer
If r = 3,
a = 4q + 3
= 4q + 2 + 1 = 2(2q + 1) + 1
= 2n + 1 (where n = 2q + 1)
which is an odd integer
Thus "a" can be 4q, 4q + 1, 4q + 2, 4q + 3.
4q or 4q + 2 is not possible because they are even integers.
So, 4q + 1 or 4q + 3 are representing odd integers.
Hence, every positive odd integer is of the form (4q + 1) or
(4q + 3).

## 8. Consider the AP 3, 15, 27, 39, ……

We know that the nth term of an AP is given by:
𝑎𝑛 = 𝑎 + (𝑛 – 1)𝑑
The 21st term will be:
𝑎21 = 3 + (21 – 1)12
⇒ 𝑎21 = 3 + (20)12 ⇒ 𝑎21 = 3 + 240
⇒ 𝑎21 = 243
According to the question,
𝑎𝑛 = 120 + 𝑎21
⇒ 𝑎 + (𝑛 – 1)𝑑 = 120 + 243
⇒ 3 + (𝑛 – 1)12 = 363
⇒ 3 + 12𝑛 − 12 = 363 ⇒ 12𝑛 − 9 = 363
⇒ 12𝑛 = 372 ⇒ 𝑛 = 31
So, 31st term of the AP is 120 more than its 21st term i.e. 363.

19
OR

Sn = 3n2 – 4n
At n = 1, S1 = -1
At n = 2, S2 = 4
At n = 3, S3 = 15
We know that an AP is also represented by sum of nth terms.

AP ⇒ S1 , (S2 – S1 ), (S3 – S2 ), … …
AP ⇒ −1, (4 + 1), (15 − 4), . . . . . ..
AP ⇒ −1, 5, 11, … …
an = a + (n – 1)d
an = −1 + (n – 1)6
= −1 + 6n − 6
= 6n – 7
So, nth term of an AP is given by 6n – 7.
9.

## By section formula which states that if a point P (x, y) divides

the line with endpoints A (x1, y1) and B (x2, y2) in the ratio m:n,
the coordinates of x and y are:

20
If the segment is divided by the x-axis then the point at x-axis
is (x, 0).
Let, the ratio of segment AB be m: 1.

## So, the ratio is 3: 5.

From the ratio we can find the co-ordinate

## 10. If we toss a coin three times, we will get the following

outcomes.
TTT, TTH, THT, THH, HTT, HTH, HHT, HHH
Now success is getting the same result in 3 tosses (TTT, HHH)
i.e. 2 outcomes.
The outcomes where the game will be lost are (TTH, THT, THH,
HTT, HTH, HHT) i.e. 6 outcomes.
As we know,
no.of favourable outcomes
probablity =
total no.of possible outcomes
So,
Probability of losing the game is:

## 11. If a die is thrown once then the outcomes are -

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
We know,

21
no.of favourable outcomes
probablity =
total no.of possible outcomes

## (i) getting a prime number

As prime numbers are 2,3,5.
Probability of getting a prime number is:

## (ii) Number lies between 2 and 6

Numbers between 2 and 6 are 3,4,5.
Probability of getting a number between 2 and 6 is:

## 12. Consider cx + 3y + (3 – c) = 0 and 12x + cy – c = 0,

We know that if the system of linear equation
a1x + b1y + c1 = 0 and a2x + b2y + c2 = 0 has infinitely many
solutions then

## On comparing with given equations

Now,
⇒ c 2 = 36 and 3(−c) = c(3 – c)
⇒ c = √36 and −3c = 3c − c 2
⇒ c = ±6 and −3c − 3c = − c 2
⇒ c = ±6 and −6c = − c 2
⇒ c = ±6 and c 2 − 6c = 0
⇒ c = ±6 and c(c − 6) = 0

22
⇒ c = −6,6 and c = 0,6
Hence, at c = 6, the system of the equations has infinitely many
solutions.

Section C (Solutions)

## 13. Let us suppose that √2 is a rational number and represent it in

the form of where p and q are relatively prime and q≠0.
So,

## On squaring both sides we get,

p2 = 2q2
As 2q2 is even then p2 is also even and p is also even.
Let, p = 2a
so p2 = 4a2
4a2 = 2q2
⇒ q2 = 2𝑎2
As 2a2 is even then q2 is also even and q is also even.

23
If p and q both are even, then they are further calculated which
is not possible because of we assumed p and q are relatively
prime number.
It means our assumption is wrong. So, by contradiction we can
say that √2 is irrational number.

## 14. Consider the polynomial x2 – (k + 6) x + 2(2k – 1),

Compare it with general equation ax2 + bx + c,
Here, a = 1, b = -(k + 6) and c = 2(2k - 1)
We know,

b
⇒ Sum of zeroes = − a
[−(𝑘+6)]
=− 1

c
⇒ Product of zeroes =a

## According to the question,

Sum of zeroes = 1/2 Product of zeroes

⇒ 𝑘 + 6 = 2𝑘 − 1
⇒ 6 + 1 = 2𝑘 − 𝑘
⇒ 7 = 𝑘

15. Let, the present age of the father is x and the sum of age of
two children be x1 and x2.

24
According to the question, the father’s age is three times the
sum of the ages of his two children.
⇒ x = 3(x1 + x2 ) … (1)
According to the question after 5 years the father's age will be
two times the sum of their ages.
x + 5 = 2(x1 + 5 + x2 + 5)
⇒ x + 5 = 2(x1 + 5 + x2 + 5)
⇒ x + 5 = 2(x1 + x2 + 10)
⇒ x + 5 = 2(x1 + x2 ) + 20
⇒ x = 2(x1 + x2 ) + 15 … (2)
Equate eq (1) and (2) to get,
⇒ 3(x1 + x2 ) = 2(x1 + x2 ) + 15
⇒ (x1 + x2 ) = 15
Put this value in (1) to get,
⇒ x = 3(15) ⇒ x = 45
So, present age of father is 45 years.

OR

## Let, be the fraction.

According to the question, a fraction becomes 1/3 when 2 is
subtracted from the numerator.

⇒ 3(𝑝 – 2) = 𝑞 … (1)
According to the question, a fraction becomes 1/2 when 1 is
subtracted from the denominator.

⇒ 2𝑝 = 𝑞 – 1
⇒ 2𝑝 + 1 = 𝑞 … (2)

25
equate (1) and (2),
⇒ 3(𝑝 – 2) = 2𝑝 + 1
⇒ 3𝑝 − 6 = 2𝑝 + 1
⇒ 𝑝 = 7
Put the value of p in (2) to get,
⇒ 2(7) + 1 = 𝑞
⇒ 14 + 1 = 𝑞
⇒ 15 = 𝑞
So, p = 7 and q = 15
Hence, the fraction is .

16.

## Let, the equidistant point is (0, y)

If it is equidistant from (5, -2) and (-3, 2) then AC = BC

&

26
As, AC = BC

## Squaring both sides, we get,

⇒ y2 + 4y + 29 = y2 − 4y + 13
⇒ 4y + 4y + 29 − 13 = 0
⇒ 8y + 16 = 0
⇒ 8y = −16
⇒ y = −2
So, the equidistant point is (0, -2)

OR

## If P is one of the trisected points then the ratio of AB at

P = 1: 2
Let, coordinates of P are (x, y).
By section formula which states that if a point P (x, y) divides
the line with endpoints A (x1, y1) and B (x2, y2) in the ration m:
n, the coordinates of x and y are:

## The coordinates of P are:

27
x = 3 and y = -2
So, the coordinates of P are (3, -2).
P satisfies the equation of the given line 2x – y + k = 0.
⇒ 2(3) – (−2) + k = 0
⇒ 6 + 2 + k = 0
⇒ 8 + k = 0
⇒ k = −8

## 17. LHS = (sin θ + cosec θ)2 + (cos θ + sec θ)2

As we know,
(a + b)2 = a2 + b2 + 2ab
= sin2 θ + cosec 2 θ + 2 sin θ cosec θ + cos 2 θ + sec 2 θ +
2 cos θ sec θ
We know,
sin2θ + cos2θ = 1, cosec2θ = 1 + cot2θ and sec2θ = 1 + tan2θ
sin θ = 1/ cosec θ and sec θ = 1/cos θ

= 1 + 1 + cot 2 θ + 2 + 1 + tan2 θ + 2
= 7 + tan2 θ + cot 2 θ
= RHS
Hence proved.
OR

## LHS ⇒ (1 + cot A – cosec A)(1 + tan A + sec A)

= 1(1 + tan A + sec A) + cot A (1 + tan A +
sec A) − cosec A (1 + tan A + sec A)
= 1 + tan A + sec A + cot A + cot A tan A +
cot A sec A – cosec A – cosec A tan A – cosec A sec A

28
= 2
= RHS
Hence proved.

18.

## Join the point T with O.

By theorem, we know that the lengths of tangents from the
external point are equal.
So, TP = TQ
In ΔTPQ,
TP = TQ
As two sides are equal, so the ΔTPQ is an isosceles triangle.
Here, OT is the bisector of ∠PTQ,
So, OT ⊥ PQ
∴ PR = RQ (perpendicular from center to the chord bisects the
chord)
So,
1
PR = QR = 2 PQ

29
1
= (8)
2
= 4 cm
In ∆ OPR
OP 2 = OR2 + PR2
52 = OR2 + 42
⇒ 25 = OR2 + 16
⇒ 9 = OR2
⇒ OR = 3 cm
In ∆ OPT
OT 2 = OP 2 + PT 2
(TR + 3)2 = 52 + PT 2 … (1)
In ∆ PRT
PT 2 = TR2 + RP 2
PT 2 = TR2 + 42 … (2)
Put the value of PT2 in (1),
⇒ (TR + 3)2 = 52 + TR2 + 42
⇒ TR2 + 9 + 6TR = 25 + TR2 + 16
⇒ 6TR + 9 = 25 + 16 ⇒ 6TR = 25 + 16 − 9
⇒ 6TR = 32

From (2),
2 16 2
PT = ( 3 ) + 16

30
So, TP = 20/3 cm

## 19. By Pythagoras theorem

In ∆ ABC
AB 2 = AC 2 + BC 2 … (1)
In ∆ ACD
AC 2 = AD2 + DC 2 … (2)
In ∆ BCD
BC 2 = BD2 + CD2 … (3)
Add eq (2) and eq (3)
AC2 + BC2 = AD2 + DC2 + BD2 + CD2
AB 2 = AD2 + 2CD2 + BD2
AB 2 − AD2 − BD2 = 2CD2
BD(AB + AD – BD) = 2CD2

OR

31
Construction:
Join P to Q and A to Q.
In Δ ACQ,
AQ2 = AC 2 + CQ2
In Δ PCB,
BP 2 = PC 2 + BC 2
In ΔACB,
AB 2 = AC 2 + BC 2
In ΔPCQ,
PQ2 = PC 2 + CQ2
LHS:
AQ2 + BP 2 = (AC 2 + CQ2 ) + (PC 2 + BC 2 )
RHS:
AB 2 + PQ2 = (AC 2 + BC 2 ) + (PC 2 + CQ2 )
= (AC 2 + CQ2 ) + (PC 2 + BC 2 )
LHS = RHS
Hence proved.

AC 2 = AD2 + DC 2
AC 2 = 62 + 82
AC 2 = 36 + 64
AC 2 = 100 ⇒ AC = √100

21. We have the diagram of the canal as,

## Given: Height of the canal = 1.5 m

Breadth of canal = 6 m
Speed of the water in the canal = 10 km/h
If speed of water = 10 km/h
⇒ In 1 hr., distance covered by water = 10 km
⇒ In 60 minutes, distance covered by water = 10 km
⇒ In 1 minute, distance covered by water = 10/60 km = 1/6 km
⇒ In 30 minutes, distance covered by water = 30 × 1/6 = 5 km
= 5000 m [∵ 1 km = 1000m]
Volume of canal is given by,
Volume of canal = length × breadth × height
⇒ Volume of canal = 5000 × 6 × 1.5 [∵ length = 5000 m, breadth
= 6 m & height = 1.5 m] …(i)
Now, we can understand that volume of the canal will itself be
the volume of the area that needs to be irrigated. So,
Volume of the canal = Volume of the area of irrigation
⇒ 5000 × 6 × 1.5 = Area irrigated ×
height of irrigation
⇒ 5000 × 6 × 1.5 = Area irrigated × 8 cm
⇒ 5000 × 6 × 1.5 = Area irrigated × 8/100 m
⇒ Area irrigated =
⇒ Area irrigated = 562500 m2
Hence, it will irrigate 562500 m2 area in 30 minutes, if 8 cm of
standing water is needed.

## ⇒ 15(x - 2) + 15x = 8x(x-2)

⇒ 15(x – 2 + x) = 8x (x – 2)
⇒ 15(2x - 2) = 8x2 - 16
⇒ 30x - 30 = 8x2 - 16
⇒ 8x2 – 46x + 30 = 0
⇒ 2(4x2 – 23x + 15) = 0
⇒ 4x2 – 23x + 15 = 0
⇒ 4x2 – 20x - 3x + 15 = 0
⇒ 4x (x -5) - 3(x - 5) = 0
⇒ (4x-3) (x -5) = 0

At x = 5
Time taken by smaller tap to fill the tank completely = 5 hours
Time taken by larger tap to fill tank completely = 5 – 2 = 3 hours
At
Time taken by smaller tap to fill the tank completely hours
Time taken by larger tap to fill the tank completely

Time is not possible to be negative.
So, is not possible.
Hence the taps can fill the tank in 5hrs and 3 hrs.

Let,

## The equations will be:

40u + 55v - 13 = 0
By cross multiplication method we know,

## Here a1 = 30, b1 = 44, c1 = -10

a2 = 40, b2 = 55, c2 = -13
So,

36
Now,

⇒ 10 = 2(y - x)
⇒ 10 = 2y - 2x
⇒ 5 = y - x .... (3)
⇒5+x=y
And

⇒ y + x = 11 .... (4)
Put the value of y in eq (4),
⇒ 5 + x + x = 11
⇒ 5 + 2x = 11
⇒ 2x = 6 ⇒ x = 3
Put the value of x in (3) to get,

So, speed of the stream = 3 km/h
And the speed of the boat = 8 km/h

## ⇒ 7(2a + 13d) = 280

⇒ 14a + 91 = 280
⇒ 2a + 13d = 40 … (2)
Subtract eq 1 from eq 2 to get,
⇒ 2a + 13d - (2a + 3d) = 40 - 20
⇒ 2a + 13d - 2a - 3d = 40 - 20
⇒ 10d = 20
⇒d=2
Put the value of d in (1) to get,
⇒ 2a + 3(2) = 20
⇒ 2a + 6 = 20
⇒ 2a = 20 – 6
⇒ 2a = 14 ⇒ a = 7

= n2 + 6n

h = 20√3 m
So, the length of BE = 20 m
length of EC = 80 – 20 m = 60 m
length of two equal poles = 20√3 m

## Let O be the center of AB.

Since AB is the diameter, so O is the midpoint of AB.
By section formula which states that if a point P (x, y) divides
the line with end points A (x1, y1) and B (x2, y2) in the ration m:
n, the coordinates of x and y are:

## As midpoint divides the line in the ratio 1:1,

Then, the coordinates of A (x, y) can be calculated as:

⇒ a + 3 = 2(-2)
⇒ a + 3 = -4
⇒ a = -7
And,

In given Figure we have
AN= AM = x [Tangents from point A]
BN = BL = y [Tangents from point B]
CL = CM = z [Tangents from point C]
Now, Given: AC = 12 cm
AM + MC = 12
x + z = 12
z = 12 – x…. 
and BC = 8 cm
BL + LC = 8
y+z=8
z = 8 – y ……

24. Now, a = 3
l = 83
Sn = 903
We know,

⇒ 43n = 903
⇒ n = 21
As we know an = a +(n-1) d and an = l.
⇒ 83 = 3 + (21-1) d

• ∠ B is 45°.

54
• ∠ A = 105°.
As the sum of angles in a triangle is 180°.
∠ A + ∠ B + ∠ C = 180°.
105° + 45° + ∠ C = 180°
150° + ∠ C = 180°
∠ C = 30°
Steps of construction:
1. Draw a line BC of length 6 cm.

## 2. With B as center construct an angle of 45°.

a. With B as center draw an arc of any convenient radius which
cuts the line BC at D.

## b. With D as center and with the same radius as above (step a)

draw an arc which cuts the previous arc at point E.

## c. With E as center and with the same radius as above (step a)

draw an arc which cuts the previous arc at point F.

length of HI, draw two arcs which intersect at J.

h. Join BJ, which is the line which makes a 45° angle with line
BC.

a. With C as center draw an arc with some convenient radius
which cuts BC at K.

56
b. With K as center and with the same radius as above (step a)
draw an arc which cuts the previous arc at point L.

c. With K and L as centers and with radius more than half the
length of KL, draw two arcs which intersect at M.

d. Join CM which makes an angle of 30° with the line BC. Extend
BJ and CM to join at point A. This is the required triangle Δ ABC.

## 4. Now with B as center draw a ray BX making an acute angle

with BC on the opposite side of vertex A. (as the scale factor is

57
greater than 1). Mark 4 points B1, B2, B3 and B4 on BX which are
equidistant. i.e. BB1 = B1B2 = B2B3 = B3B4.

5. Join B3C. Then draw a line B4C’ which is parallel to B3C and
meets the extended line BC at C’.

## 6. Now draw a line C’A’ which is parallel to CA and meets the

extended line AC at A’. The Δ A’BC’ is the required triangle of
scale factor 3/4.

Justification:

58
Consider,

Also, as AC ∥ A’C’,
We can say that ∠ A’C’B = ∠ ACB (corresponding angles) – (2)
Now, consider the triangles Δ ABC and Δ A’BC’
∠ B = ∠ B (Common angle)
∠ A’C’B = ∠ ACB (from (2))
From the Angle Similarity of triangles, we can clearly say that
Δ ABC ≅ Δ A’BC’
By CPCT (Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles), we can
say that,

Common difference d = 21 – 14 = 7,
Last term = an = 98
Since, nth term is given by:
an = a + (n - 1) d
⇒ 98 = 14 + (n – 1)7
⇒ 98 = 14 + 7n – 7
⇒ 98 = 7 + 7n
⇒ 91 = 7n
⇒ n = 13
There are 13 two-digit numbers divisible by 7.

Now S1 = a1
a1 = 1
S2 – S1 = a 2
4 – 1 = a2
3 = a2
Now, d = a2 – a1
= 3 -1
=2
We know, an = a + (n – 1)d
For n = 10,
a10 = 1 + (10– 1)2

So, 10th term of the AP is 19.

13. Consider 3x3 + 10x2 – 9x – 4,
Since 1 is the zero of the given polynomial.
So, (x-1) is the factor of the polynomial.

## So, 3x3 + 10x2 – 9x – 4 = (x-1) (3x2 + 13x +4)

Now, 3x2 + 13x +4 = 3x2 + 12x + x +4
= 3x (x + 4) + 1 (x+4)
= (3x+1) (x+4)
So, zeroes will be

height).
So, in ∆ABC
Area (∆ABC) = 1/2 × BC × AM [∵ base = BC & height = AM] …(i)
Similarly, in ∆PQR
Area (∆PQR) = 1/2 × QR × PN [∵ base = QR & height = PN] …(ii)
Dividing equations (i) by (ii), we get

⇒ …(iii)
In ∆ABM & ∆PQN,
∠B = ∠Q [∵ ∆ABC ∼ ∆PQR; and corresponding angles are
equal of similar triangles]
∠AMB = ∠PNQ [∵ they are 90°]
So, by AA-similarity property of triangle, ∆ABM ∼ ∆PQN.
⇒ [∵ corresponding sides of similar triangles are
proportional] …(iv)
Substituting equation (iv) in equation (iii), we have
