Question 30.

On the annual day of school, age-wise participation of students is given in the following frequency distribution table:

Solutions:

Section-A

Solution 1.

[latexs=2]\sqrt { \frac { 9 }{ \pi } } =(3)\left( \frac { 1 }{ \sqrt { \pi } } \right) [/latex] = (rational) (irrational) = irrational (1)

Solution 2.

Solution 3.

According to the figure BD is the diagonal of ABCD. By distance formula BD

BD = [latex]\sqrt { { ({ x }_{ 2 }-{ x }_{ 1 }) }^{ 2 }+{ ({ y }_{ 2 }-{ y }_{ 1 }) }^{ 2 } } =\sqrt { { (4-0) }^{ 2 }+(0-3)^{ 2 } } [/latex]

= [latex]\sqrt { 25 } [/latex] = 5 units (1)

Solution 4.

sin(90° – 2*A*) = sin(*A*-15°)

⇒ 90°-2*A* = +4-15° ⇒ 3*A* = 105° (1/2)

∴ *A* = 35° (1/2)

Solution 5.

x = -[latex s=2]\frac { 1 }{ 2 } [/latex] is a solution of 3x2 + 2kx -3=0

Now, [latexs=2]{ 3\left( \frac { -1 }{ 2 } \right) }^{ 2 }+2k\left( \frac { -1 }{ 2 } \right) -3[/latex] = 0 (1/2)

[latex s=2]\frac { 3 }{ 4 } [/latex] -k -3 =0 ⇒ k = [latex s=2]\frac { -9 }{ 4 } [/latex] (1/2)

Solution 6.

[latex s=2]\frac { CD }{ AD } =\frac { CE }{ BE } [/latex] ⇒ [latexs=2]\frac { x+3 }{ 2x } =\frac { x }{ 2x-1 } [/latex] (1/2)

⇒ 5x = 3 ⇒ x = [latex s=2]\frac { 3 }{ 5 } [/latex] (1/2)

Section-B

Solution 7.

Since 4025 > 1656,

∴4025 =1656 × 2 + 713

1656 = 713 × 2 + 230

713 = 230 × 3+23 (1)

230 = 23 × 10+0

So, HCF (1,656,4,025) = 23 (1)

Solution 8.

Solution 9.

Since the number of apples in the given heap = 900

And the probability of selecting a rotten apple randomly = 0.18

Hence, the number of rotten apples in the heap will be 900 × 0.18 i.e.,162 (1)

Solution 10.

∵P (Red) = [latex s=2]\frac { 1 }{ 4 } [/latex], and, P (Blue) = [latex s=2]\frac { 1 }{ 3 } [/latex]

So, P (Orange) = 1-[latex]\frac { 1 }{ 4 } -\frac { 1 }{ 3 } =\frac { 5 }{ 12 } [/latex] (1)

Therefore, [latex s=2]\frac { 5 }{ 12 } [/latex] ×(Total no. of balls) = 10

Hence, total no. of balls = [latex s=2]\frac { 10\times 12 }{ 5 } [/latex] = 24 (1)

Solution 11.

Let ages of father and son be x and y respectively.

x+y = 40 …(i)

x = 3y ….(ii) (1)

By solving eqs. (i) and (ii)

x =30 andy = 10

Ages are 30 years and 10 years. (1)

Solution 12.

Section-C

Solution 13.

Let us assume [latex s=2]\frac { 2 }{ 5\sqrt { 3 } } [/latex], to the contrary, that [latex s=2]\frac { 2 }{ 5\sqrt { 3 } } [/latex] is rational.

∴ [latex s=2]\frac { 2 }{ 5\sqrt { 3 } } [/latex] = [latex s=2]\frac { p }{ q } [/latex] where p, q (q ≠ 0) are integers and p, q are co-prime. (1)

⇒ [latex s=2]\frac { 2q }{ 5p } [/latex] = [latex]\sqrt { 3 } [/latex] (1/2)

Since, 2, 5, p, q are integers

∴ [latex s=2]\frac { 2q }{ 5p } [/latex] is rational, and so [latex]\sqrt { 3 } [/latex] is rational. (1)

But this contradicts the fact that [latex]\sqrt { 3 } [/latex] is irrational

Hence, [latex s=2]\frac { 2 }{ 5\sqrt { 3 } } [/latex] is irrational. (1/2)

Solution 14.

Solution 15.

Let the y-coordinate of the point P be a.

And, its x-coordinate will be 2a.

So, the coordinates of the point P are (2a, a).

Since, the point P (2a, a) is equidistant from Q (2, -5) and R(-3,6).

∴ [latex]\sqrt { { (2a-2) }^{ 2 }+{ (a-(-5)) }^{ 2 } } =\sqrt { { (2a-(-3)) }^{ 2 }+{ (a-6) }^{ 2 } } [/latex] (1)

[latex]\sqrt { { (2a-2) }^{ 2 }+{ (a+5) }^{ 2 } } =\sqrt { { (2a+3) }^{ 2 }+{ (a-6) }^{ 2 } } [/latex]

So, [latex]\sqrt { { 5a }^{ 2 }+2a+29 } =\sqrt { { 5a }^{ 2 }+45 } [/latex] (1)

After squaring both sides, we get

5a2 + 2a + 29 = 5a2 + 45

5a2 + 2a – 5a2 = 45 – 29

Thus, a = 8

Hence, the coordinates of the point P are (16, 8).

OR

Solution 16.

OR

Solution 17.

As, the tangents drawn from the exterior point to a circle are equal in length. (1/2)

So, DR=DS ….(i)

AP= AS …(ii)

BP = BQ …(iii)

CR=CQ ….(iv) (1)

Adding(i), (ii), (iii) and (iv), we get

DR + AP + BP + CR = DS + AS + BQ + CQ (1/2)

⇒ (DR + CR) + (AP + BP) = (DS + AS) + (BQ + CQ)

⇒ CD + AB = DA + BC

⇒ AB+CD = BC + DA (Hence Proved). (1)

Solution 18.

Area of the shaded region

= Area of the rectangle – Area of the semi-circle (1/2)

(14×21) – [latex s=2]\frac { 1 }{ 2 } \times \frac { 22 }{ 7 } \times { 7 }^{ 2 }[/latex] (1/2)

= 294 – 77 = 217 cm2 (1/2)

Perimeter of shaded region = (2 × 21) +14 + [latex s=2]\left( \frac { 22 }{ 7 } \times { 7 } \right) [/latex] (1)

= 42+14 + 22 = 78 cm (1/2)

Solution 19.

∵ Largest possible diameter ofhemisphere = 10 cm

So, radius ofhemisphere = 5 cm (1/2)

Now, total surface area = 5(10)2 + 3.14 × (5)2 × 2 (1)

= 657 cm2 (1/2)

Hence, cost of painting = [latex s=2]\frac { 657\times 5 }{ 100 } [/latex] = ₹ 32.85

OR

Solution 20.

Solution 21.

S and T trisect the side QR.

Let QS = ST = TR = x units

Let PQ = y units (1/2)

In right ∆PQS, PS2 = PQ2 + QS2 (By Pythagoras Theorem)

= y2 + x2 …(i) (1/2)

In right ∆PQR, PT2 = (By Pythagoras Theorem)

= y2 + (2x)2 = y2 + 4x2 ….(ii) (1/2)

In right ∆PQR, PR22 = PQ2 + QR2(By Pythagoras Theorem)

=y2 + (3x)2 = y2 + 9x2 …(iii) (1/2)

R.H.S. = 3 PR2 + 5 PS2

= 3(y2 + 9x2)+ 5(y2+x2) [From (i) and (iii)]

= 3y2 + 27x2 + 5y2 + 5x2 = 8y2 + 32x2

= 8(y2 + 4x2) = 8PT2 = L.H.S. [From(ii)] (1)

Thus 8PT2 = 3PR2 + 5PS22

OR

In APAC and AQBC, We have

∠PAC = ∠QBC [Each = 90°]

∠PCA = ∠QCB [Common] (1)

∴∆PAC ~ ∆QBC

∴ [latex s=2]\frac { x }{ y } =\frac { AC }{ BC } [/latex] i.e. [latexs=2]\frac { y }{ x } =\frac { BC }{ AC } [/latex] ..(i) (1/2)

Solution 22.

Section-D

Solution 23.

(cos θ + [latex]\sqrt { 3 } [/latex] sin θ)2 + (sin θ – [latex]\sqrt { 3 } [/latex] cos θ)2

= cos2 θ + 3sin2 θ + 2 [latex]\sqrt { 3 } [/latex] cos θ sin θ + sin2 θ + 3cos2 θ – 2 [latex]\sqrt { 3 } [/latex] cos θ sin θ (1)

⇒ (2sin θ)2 + (sin θ – [latex]\sqrt { 3 } [/latex] cos θ)2 = (cos2 θ + sin2 θ) + 3 (sin2 θ + cos2 θ) (1)

⇒ (sin θ – [latex]\sqrt { 3 } [/latex] cos θ)2 = 4 – 4 sin2 θ (1/2)

⇒ (sin θ- [latex]\sqrt { 3 } [/latex] cos θ)2 = 4 cos2 θ (1)

⇒ sin θ – [latex]\sqrt { 3 } [/latex] cos θ = 2 cos θ (Hence proved) (1/2)

Solution 24.

Let r and h be the radius and depth of the well, respectively.

Here, r = [latex s=2]\frac { 4 }{ 2 } [/latex] = 2 m and h = 21 m (1/2)

Let R and H be the outer radius and height of the embankment, respectively.

So, R = r + 3= 2 + 3 = 5m (1)

As, volume of the earth to form the embankment = Volume of the earth dug out

π(R2-r2)H = πr2h (1)

∴ H = [latex s=2]\frac { { r }^{ 2 }h }{ { R }^{ 2 }-{ r }^{ 2 } } [/latex] (1/2)

∴ H = [latex s=2]\frac { { 2 }^{ 2 }\times 21 }{ { 5 }^{ 2 }-{ 2 }^{ 2 } } [/latex] = 4 m (1)

Solution 25.

Since, [latex s=2]\frac { 1 }{ 2a+b+2x } =\frac { 1 }{ 2a } +\frac { 1 }{ b } +\frac { 1 }{ 2x } [/latex]

[latex s=2]\frac { 1 }{ 2a+b+2x } =\frac { 2xb+4ax+2ab }{ (2a)(b)(2x) } [/latex] (1)

4abx = (2xb + 4ax + 2ab) (2a + b + 2x)

4abx = 12axb + 8a2x + 4a2b + 2xb2 + 2ab2 + 4x2b + 8ax2

x2 (4b + 8a) + x(8ab + 8a2 + 2b2) + (2ab2 + 4a2b) = 0 (1)

4x2 (2a + b) + x [4a (2a + b) + 2b (2a+ b)] + 2ab (b + 2a) = 0

4(2a + b) x[x + a] + 2b (2a + b) [x + a] = 0 (1)

(x + a) (2x + b) = 0 [ ∵ 2a + b ≠ 0]

x = -a, [latex s=2]\frac { -b }{ 2 } [/latex]

Hence, the value of x is -a and [latex s=2]\frac { -b }{ 2 } [/latex]. (1)
