**Solution 1.**

A rational number is either terminating or non-terminating repeating.

An irrational number is non-terminating and non-repeating. **(1)**

**Solution 2.**

P (4, -3) and Q (-1,7)

PR: RQ = 3:2

4 × 2 + (-1) × 3

Abscissa = [latex s=2]\frac { 4\times 2+(-1)\times 3 }{ 3+2 } [/latex]= 1 **(1)**

**Solution 3.**

Given k + 9,2k – 1 and 2k + 7 are in AP.

∴ 2(2k – 1) = (k + 9)+(2k + 7) [By Arithmetic mean] **(1/2)**

⇒ 4k-2 = 3k+16 ⇒ k=18 **(1/2)**

**Solution 4.**

Given that

sin (45° + θ) – cos (45° – θ) = cos [90° – (45° + θ)] – cos (45° – θ) [∵ cos (90° – θ) = sin θ]

= cos (45° – θ) – cos (45° – θ) = 0 **(1)**

**Solution 6.**

PQ || RS (Given)

So, ∠P = ∠S (Alternate angles)

and ∠Q=∠R **(1/2)**

Also, ∠POQ = ∠ SOR (Vertically opposite angles)

Therefore, ∆POQ ~ ∆SOR (AAA similarity criterion) **(1/2)**

**Solution 7.**

**Solution 8.**

**Solution 9.**

**Solution 10.**

**Solution 11.**

P (winning) = 0.08

Total tickets sold = 6000

Let the number of tickets she bought be x, then probability of winning =[latex s=2]\frac { x }{ 6000 } [/latex] **(1)**

⇒[latex s=2]\frac { x }{ 6000 } [/latex] = 0.08 ⇒ x = 6000 × 0.08 ⇒ x = 480** (1)**

Thus the girl bought 480 tickets.

**Solution 12.**

S= {1,2,3, ,100} (1/2)

n(S)= 100

E ={ 11,22,33,44, 55,66,77, 88,99} (1)

**Solution 13.**

Let a and b be two positive integers where a is odd.

Applying division lemma a = 8q + r where 0 < r < 8

So, r can take any of the values 0, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7

Therefore, a= 8q, 8q + 1, 8q + 2, 8q + 3, 8q + 4,

8q + 5, 8q + 6, 8q + 7** (1)**

Since, a is odd.

Therefore, a cannot take values 8q, 8q + 2, 8q + 4, 8q + 6 since they can expressed as multiples of 2.

So, a will take values 8q+ 1,8q + 3, 8q + 5, 8q + 7.** (1)**

Also, 8q + 5 = 8q + 8 – 3 = 8 (q + 1) – 3 = 8q’ — 3

where q’ = q + 1, 8q + 7 = 8q + 8 – 1 =8q’- 1

So, every positive odd integer is of form 8q ± 1, 8q ± 3. **(1)**

Given: PA and PB are tangents to the circle from an external point P. CD is another tangent at Q. PA= 12 cm, QC = QD = 3 cm

To find: PC + PD

**(1/2)**

Proof: PA = PC + AC

12 = PC+ 3

[∵ QC = AC = 3 cm, tangents from external point to a circle are equal in length]

PC = 9 cm …(i)

**(1)**

Similarly, BD = QD = 3 cm

and PB = PA =12 cm

**(1/2)**

PB = PD + BD

12 = PD +3

PD = 9 cm

Now, PC + PD = 9 + 9 = 18 cm

**Steps of construction:**

1. Draw a circle of radius 4 cm, with O as the centre.

2. Take a point A on the circumference of the circle and join OA. Draw a perpendicular to OA at A.

3. Draw a radius OB, making an angle of 120° with OA.

4. Draw a perpendicular to OB at B. Suppose these perpendiculars intersect at P.

Here, PA and PB are two tangents drawn to the circle inclined at an angle of 60° to each other.

Justification

The construction can be justified by proving that

∠APB = 60°.

∠OAP = 90° (By Construction)

∠OBP = 90° (By Construction)

∠AOB=120° (By Construction)

The sum of all interior angles of a quadrilateral is 360°,.

∠OAP + ∠AOB + ∠OBP + ∠APB = 360° .

⇒ 90°+120°+ 90° +∠APB = 360°
